So I suppose this is the pregnancy post to begin all future pregnancy posts. For the next 22 weeks at least.
Yes, that's right. We are 18 weeks along at this point. And with twins I guess you could say we are half-way! It's crazy to realize where the time has gone, yet looking back over the first trimester, it seemed as if the days just drug on and on and on.
Second trimester has brought so much relief to the horrible sickness I had been experiencing. I am finally off of the zofran pump and now only take it orally if I need it (which praise God has been very little).
Tomorrow is a big day for me. I go back to work. Due to how sick I was and how run down my body became, I had to take leave from work starting about mid-November. So tomorrow marks my return. For who knows how long....
Kyle and I had originally planned on taking weekly pictures to track my growing belly, but when your head is stuck in a toilet, pictures are the last thing on your mind.
So here is where we began:
And here is where we are now:
I can't remember who I have told or where I may have mentioned it, if it all, but we are having TWINS, one BOY and one GIRL!!!
Inside that growing tummy is Miss Mattie Rose McShan and William "yet to have a middle name" McShan. Mattie Rose is a family name. Mattie was one of Kyle's great-grandmothers and Rose was mine. If you've read past posts, you know how dear my great-grandma Rose was to me. William is Kyle's first name, which also runs in his family, and we are back and forth over what the middle name is going to be. More than likely we will be calling him by his middle name which is why we are having trouble finalizing a decision.
I will do my best to stay on top of the posts each week. This belly is bound to get big and get big quick!
Off to bed. 6 AM is going to come quite early I have a feeling...
Love to you all!
