We're Pregnant!

Yes! It's true! In case you missed the announcement, we are pregnant! We could not be more excited for our long awaited blessing! We are due in late April! Here is a quick recap so far:

4 weeks - found out we were pregnant!

7 weeks - had our first sono! And boy was it exciting....We found out we were having twins! We could not be more excited! Since I'm an only child one of my biggest fears in life has been to have just one child. Guess we got that out of the way right away! Here I am at the Dr. when we found out. To say I was excited would have been an understatement!

8 - 13 weeks: The first trimester went smooth! My biggest complaint was how slow it seemed to have gone. I was just so ready to get over the first trimester hump and not worry as much about miscarriages...I was nauseous a lot, especially if I didn't have something in my stomach. So just had to be constantly eating....I was soooooooooooooo tired. I'd always heard how tired you got when you were pregnant, but gosh I felt like I was hit by a truck. I would work all day, take a 2 hour nap when I got home, make dinner, and be back in bed by 9. I was just exhausted! Not sure if this was because I was carrying two or if that's how it always is. But, gosh, I was so warn out! We also found out that I was anemic, so know that doesn't help with being tired.

The two Dr. appointments I had during the first trimester went great. I switched to a new Dr. when we found out it was twins (Dr.Flowers). And I could not be more happy with that choice. She is my same size and build, a runner, plus has twins! Just so easy to relate to her!

Still couldn't tell I was pregnant yet. The Dr. said she thought I wouldn't show until week 16 since I was long and lean.

Finally, got to share the new with my school! It was the week the Rangers made it to the World Series, so we took pictures of everyone in their Ranger gear & me in a twins jersey. It took everyone a minute to catch on to me wearing the wrong jersey. But once they did, the reaction was priceless!

We also finally got to announce our surprise on Facebook and to all our friends that didn't know! We couldn't wait to share the news! Here is how we did it!

14-15 weeks: Start of 2nd trimester! Finally started feeling better. Stopped feeling nauseous all the time and had a ton more energy!

We celebrated our 4th Anniversary! We had a romantic night at Abacus! It was wonderful!
 14 weeks

We didn't get any picts. together. :(

16 weeks - At about 16 weeks I finally started to show a little. Clothes were fitting tighter around the waste and I didn't look like I had just gained weight in my stomach! (I'll post baby bump photos next)

At 16 weeks we also got to find out the gender of the twins! That requires a separate post in itself!

We are so excited to be going on this journey and feel that the Lord is truly watching over us and our little ones. We feel so blessed!
