Halfway There!

And still livin' on prayers! :)

This weekend we hit 20 weeks! Halfway? Really?

The whole awful sickness time period is almost a distant memory. I have gone back to work. And for the most part am doing great! This week's picture is a little late. We are a little closer to 20 weeks but it'll do.

We had our fetal survey ultrasound this morning, so we snapped a quick picture before we headed to the doctor.

My babycenter weekly emails say babies are the size of heirloom tomatoes. We'll go with it...

Jake had to show his little brother and sister some love.

And here are some pictures from today's visit. Sorry some of them are so dark. I was too lazy to get under more light.

We found out lots of great and interesting things today while at the doctor:

-The babies' brains, brain stems, hearts, kidneys, bladders, stomachs, and lips look great!
-Mattie Rose takes up ALL the space and leaves just enough room for her brother to snuggle against some placenta. From the looks of it she is going to be a wild one and he is going to be the cuddler.
-The babies are measuring equal to each other, which is what they are supposed to be doing. Growing perfectly so far.

-They have all their fingers and toes.
-They both weigh approx 12 ounces each. Not quite a pound yet.
-I now weigh more than I ever have in my life. Which is totally okay, because I lost a too much weight early on from being so sick.
-I had my belly measured with the tape measure for the first time today. And was quickly informed that I am measuring equal to a woman with a single pregnancy who is 28 weeks along. Yes, that's right. I look two months further than I really am. I am going to be HUGE here shortly, I have a feeling.

I think that pretty much covers it...

We will see the doctor and our babies again in four weeks. I'm sure it will seem like a lifetime! Ultrasounds have been the best part of the pregnancy so far. Because there are two, we get to have an ultrasound at every visit! It is incredible to watch them grow and see their little personalities. It blows my mind to see and know how small they are, yet so well-developed.

I think that about covers it for the week. If I missed something, I blame it on the pregnancy brain. This weekend calls for relaxation and pampering. Getting what will hopefully be my first of several pre-natal massages and a pedicure on Saturday.

Love to you all!
