...23 1/2 weeks...
I decided I better keep better track of this pregnancy so later on I will have something to compare it to when we have more kids (someday WAY down the road!) I haven't ever recored how I feel, things I crave, etc.. So better late than never!
We are slowly getting the nursery started. Madden has his crib and bedding up and Bostyn should have hers up this week! My mom got us a travel system that the car-seats can click into. Which should be nice even though it feels like your pushing a boat around!! We found our bedding on Amazon.com, it was hard to find two that were the same pattern just different colors! But we love what we found!

I am thinking I want to paint the green stripes behind his bed and pink ones behind hers! Also with their names above the cribs in vinyl lettering! I LOVE VINYL!
As for me, I have been feeling good! Every day that goes by it does get harder to work and do house chores but I just use a heat pad every night and it seems to help. I was told by me Dr. that after thanksgiving he doesn't want me working anymore.. which at first I was super put out about but now I am ok with it! My back hurts every day And I don't want any stress from that putting me into an early labor.
People say I look small but I don't see that! I just know how to hide it well! At my Dr. visit last week I had a reality check when I had to get on the scale! I have already gained 25 pounds and I still have a ways to go! I'm not one to be shy about my weight and I never care if people know how much I weight.. not a big deal to me so I will be sure to give everyone a grand total at the end of all this!
I still can sleep at night but do wake up about 3-5 times from movements and bathroom breaks! But I could stay up all night seeing and feeling their little kicks! I think I have been having Braxton hicks? Im not positive but about 5 times a day my stomach gets super tight and I can't really move or breath! I notice it more when I am super busy (which is most days)
Thats about it though. I eat to much and workout to little! I can't wait to meet these little nuggets and hold them and kiss them! My life has changed since the second I found out they were on their way.. I just want to be the best I can be for them....
Robbie is just as excited! He rubs my belly all the time and he has got to feel them kick a few times. More than anything I just can't wait to see him holding our babies for the first time. Thats what I look forward to the most out of all of this! He is going to be such a great and fun dad! I just adore him and appreciate all hid hard work. We don't see much of each other these days between work and school. He is a busy BUSY guy and he is worn out.. The picture below literally he feel asleep in 1 minute. I was talking to him.. walked into our room.. came back out and this is what I found!!
Anyway! Sorry this was long!
