14 weeks!

Wow! Time flies by! It seems like yesterday that we learned we were pregnant and then that we were having twins! Today we got to see our precious babies again. One of my students asked if I was going to the doctor to let the babies out today. We have a LONG time until that comes. Both babies are very healthy with strong heart beats. We are hoping to do a 3D ultrasound in a few weeks and if we time it right we should be able to learn the gender(s).

This last week mom and I went to look at baby beds. We got such a good deal that we got the whole bedroom set. I can already tell these babies are going to be spoiled, and I am going to be broke! I am hoping to clean out the baby room and prepare it for furniture over the holidays. That is going to be a BIG task!

For those that have been asking, I am getting a belly. I have been showing a while but unless I wear my maternity jeans (I can't wear any other jeans) others can't tell b/c I am only comfortable in looser pants. I have to say that so far pregnancy has done me some good in the weight matter. I have actually lost weight since my first appt., but I know that is not going to last. For a while there I was throwing up a couple times a day, but now it is down to maybe once a week so I know those numbers will be rising (but I have a good excuse now).

I now have a lot of my energy back and feel pretty good. I don't feel like I am a terrible teacher anymore b/c for a few weeks there I had very little energy and could not devote near the time I need to on my students. My kids are too cute! I have the best class in the world this year (sorry if I had your child in the past, but I am learning that 1st grade is wonderful). One kid told me today that he can't wait to meet my babies b/c they are going to be so cute! Another kid asks me if I am okay every time I cough or sneeze. I am in good hands at school!

Rando has been a king! He is so good to me and these babies! I am so blessed! My dad is cracking me up. He has never been an overprotective dad, but now he is! We both have such wonderful families!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than a month away and Christmas 2 months. Time is flying by! Take some time to spend with your family this weekend and I can't forget to say, "GO DAWGS!!!!!"

Love you all!

Oh my! We have had an exciting day! As tired as I have been I can't imagine trying to go to sleep right now. While at our 1st ultrasound I asked, "It is only one?" Kind of surprised because I have thought for weeks and honestly most of my life that I was having / would have twins. The nurse said, "No, actually there are two." Of course then Rando wanted to have clarification that there were only two. We just sat there and laughed because we were so thrilled and shocked and a million other emotions. I can honestly say I wasn't scared at all (well except for when I thought about delivery and I still can't stomach that). We are so thankful we serve an awesome God that does not give more than we can handle!

These last few weeks I haven't been able to update because when I have gotten home I have not been very mobile. I have been exhausted (and now understand why). I have also been sick a good bit. I hope that part is coming to an end soon!

Our families were thrilled. Rando's mom didn't believe us so we had to send a picture to her through the phone. She was excited when she got to see the picture!My dad's face in the pictures below are hysterical! Adam was fun to listen to on the phone, and Dana proclaimed to all that she knew it because she was with me when I tried on maternity clothes the first time and no girl this early is showing that much without there being 2. Mom is excited and said she kind of knew but didn't want to get my hopes up. My grandparents were shocked! My grandmother in Florida couldn't stop laughing. She has a twin brother and my granddad had a twin sister. This is why it wasn't a surprise. Of course it was suppose to be my mom that had the twins, but I am glad we are getting this extra joy!

We have had a great day! Enjoy the pictures below! We appreciate the prayers and love of all of our friends and family!
