Never gets old

Yesterday I had an ultrasound and it was pretty neat. I brought the kids along with and believe it or not Brayden was much more into it than Harmony. They both got bored pretty quickly when she started to measure the brains, leg bones, tummies, etc. They did think it was pretty darn cool to see them moving around in there and we saw baby girl waving and doing what looked like a fist pump but the best part of it was when baby boy looked to be doing baby squats. It was hilarious, up and down and up and down probably 5 or 6 times. She took a pic that I am posting. Its of the back of him, no head but baby back, legs and lil teeny baby boy butt. Super cute, I just wanna pinch it! :-)
Matt says I need to eat more cuz baby is too skinny, I said that’s prob why he was doing squats. He is obviously Matts son. I have plenty of fat he can take and considering he weighs about 10 oz, he looks pretty good :-)
Baby girls pic is of her being all cute and cuddled up, hands in front of face, legs crossed just like a lady. Its hard to see since they are 4d pics.
I am just shy of 19 weeks now and have another u/s next week that Matt will be able to come to. They are also doing “genetic counseling” with us which I think is ridiculous. Little late for that, dontcha think?!?!? I am not gonna let them sit and tell me all the things that “could” be wrong since we chose to be pregnant “at my age” but I will allow them to tell me what type of tests my kids should have since I have 4 mutated genes that I can pass to them. Any reason to go and see the babies again tho. This is the OB’s gender u/s..... I wont tell them that we already know....shhhhh.

The flood gates have opened and I have started buying.... watch out checkbook! I buy at least one package of diapers and wipes each week, sometimes 2 if it’s a good sale and looking at clothes but harder to buy those not knowing if they will be super little or “normal size” so only bought a few super cute things on clearance so far. I have a girlfriend that had twins 4 months ago and they are on a preemie formula - she is spending $100 each week on formula so I am hoping that I can BF a lil bit, to off set some of that cost. With buying diapers and wipes each week I hope that will help too when the babies come and I am not working.

Not sure how much longer I will be working either. Specialist says all ok for now as long as I continue to do what I am doing, which is pretty much nothing. I go see them every other week and so each time I will know whether or not I have another 2 weeks to work. No tears or bleeding **knock on wood** as of now so that is good too. Blood flow is perfect so i can stay on the the lower dose of lovenox injections and i am completely off the progesterone AND the steroid. Being off the steroid is nice, the acne seems to be clearing up but i think thats where a lot of the pain is coming from. I think i could bathe in Tylenol and still be unable to get up and walk w/out pain. Oh well.... NO complaining here.... wanted this and so happy to have it!!!

All GREAT news! And I love the little baby butt=) Woo hoo! 10 oz is great at this point, so the babies are growing just perfectly and are just as chunky as they can possibly be! Tell Matt to chill! I'm getting a bit chunky from all the extra food and calories I'm taking in too and the babies are welcome to have as much of it as they want. . .they just don't want it!!
Brilliant idea about buying diapers and wipes now. . . we should probably be doing that too, instead of waiting for the shock of going through a bazillion diapers a week - lol=). And woo hoo for shopping - I am TRYING not to buy too much, but I haven't been incredibly successful on that front. Hehe=). It's just too much fun!!!!

I would start buying diapers and wipes meg, I was told that on a good day, average day, with twins we will go thru 10 diapers a day so that is 70 diapers a week..... id say more like 100 just cuz of accidents or the runs or put the diapers on backwards, lol, j/k.... you know what I mean. Thats a HELLAVA lot of diapers each week!!!
I have gotten a few more outfits - so hard not too, esp when i can buy a girl and a boy one that are the same but just slightly different, love that part! YOU can buy double frilly girl stuff. I wanna get tons of those really obnoxious headband thingys with huge flowers on them, Harmony says that they are ugly which they kinda are but i love them anyway
