The twins are growing rapidly, and boy oh boy can I feel it! I can't believe how fast the time is going. I am just finishing up my 23rd week,(although some days I feel 52 weeks) which is just so crazy to me. I can't believe that in less than three months my babies could be here! My stomach continues to grow, and sometimes I don't recognize myself in the mirror. We don't have a full mirror, so when we go places and I use the bathroom I honestly get a little freaked out when I see my reflection! It seems that everywhere I go everyone tells me how miserable I look (compliment?) and wants to know if I am due in the next week or two. This has become somewhat of a game for me to watch their faces as I tell them that yes I am a bit miserable, but I have three months to go! My health is good, and the babies are exactly where they should be at this point. I am loving getting things ready for the babies, but most of all I love feeling them move. I am trying very, very hard to stay positive and remember that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to carry these two little angels. The goal right now is to get to at least 34 weeks which is the first week in November although it would be great if I went longer! I am trying to keep the goal in sight and do everything in my power to get to that point.
We have had a lot of people ask if we have a baby registry set up anywhere for the twins. I finally sat down a few days ago and created one. So, for anyone who is interested in helping us celebrate these two little bundles of joy that will be arriving in the next few months you can find our registry at www.babiesrus.com. Once you get to the website click on "find a registry" and then you can search by typing in my name. I accidentally created two registries and can't figure out how to delete one, so the one you need to click on is the second one that comes up. :)
We are sure getting excited for these boys to arrive and feel so grateful to have been given this opportunity to raise twins!
