Week 18 ~ February 19, 2008 ~ I am considered half way!
Well statistically - a mother who is caring twins is full term at 36 weeks so this week I statistically would be half way through my pregnancy. My goal is to make it to 36 weeks. The longer I can make it - the better for my babies! Time has been going by fast.
This past week has been good. I have been feeling really energetic lately. I have my days where I am more tired - but for the most part I have had a lot of energy and have been taking care of things at home.
This time next week I will be able to give all of you an exciting update. In seven days, I get to have my 3-D ultrasound and we finally get to find out the gender of the babies; we are so excited. I can't wait to share the good news with all of you. Finally - this week next time we can start deciding on names!
The weather hasn't gotten any warmer. It still has been extremely cold. I wish it would warm up so I can go for walks to get some sort of exercise. But with this cold weather, all I want to do is hibernate indoors. I swear this morning I woke up and felt like I gained more weight. Maybe it's because today is the first day I wore maternity pants. Maybe that is why I felt huge. I know I am going to get bigger, but today is the first day I didn't feel very pretty - if that makes any sense. Oh well - that's life!
I went to the store this past week and was trying to pick out a few different samples of paint to paint the nursery and my son Tyler's room. We can't paint one without doing the other! Anyway - I think the nursery is going to be a pale yellow or green. I think I want to do the room in animals. Jungle animals like monkeys, lions, tigers, bears, giraffes, etc. My good friend Lindsay has done something similar with her nursery and I fell in love with it. Hopefully she doesn't mind that I am stealing her idea! I felt like this would be a great theme for either boys or girls or both. It will be fun decorating. My sister Teri will probably help me with the majority of it considering I am not supposed to be painting.
Things are going great. I am healthy and happy. That is about all for this week. Look for my posting next week! I will be able to let you know what the sexes are! I am so excited!
