Chris and I have known the genders of the babies since we were just over 13 weeks. We waited on a follow up ultrasound at the end of June to confirm the genders. Then, I found this photo idea on Pinterest that I wanted to do, but the two times we tried to do pictures the weather didn't cooperate or I was feeling miserable. So, 8 weeks later we have the picture and are ready to let everyone know...... Rease got her wish and she has a sister and a brother on the way :)

I almost entitled this post "Baby #3" and then I thought, "duh, that doesn't work". To say that twins are harder on my brain than a singleton pregnancy would be an understatement.
I think is probably the first time I have blogged in ages, so there are probably too many things to attempt to catch up on in one post.
So for now, you get a brief update on this pregnancy and a glimps at the twin belly at about 19.5 weeks :)
I am finally past the extremely fatigued stage and have had a couple days of feeling pretty good. We have the kids in swimming lessons this week, which required each of us to be in the water with one of the kids. I probably should have thought more about this, as I am pretty sure I am not cut out for it. Lugging the kids around the pool is causing the spot where I had the umbilical hernia with G's pregnancy to be incredibly uncomfortable. I'm a bit paranoid that even though I had it repaired, the growth with this pregnancy may just cause it to tear again. Let's hope not.
Besides that, I am feeling pretty good. We have had at least 5 sono's and the babies seem to be doing well and growing as they should. I can feel the bottom baby kick and roll around like crazy most of the day, but the upper one is apparently more mellow or positioned where I can't feel the movements as much.
Here is the belly pick, enjoy. I was getting ready to get in the car for swim lessons, so ignore the glamorous maternity suit :)
