Today I’m 23 weeks pregnant with the twins 🙂
We’ve had a pretty good week. More growing pains, but all normal.
I think Sloane moves around more in the morning and Knox moves around more at night. I think they are still doing some flipping and far as head up/down. The sides they are on inside me probably won’t change.
No doctor’s appointment this week. We are still on a two week schedule so we will go back next week.
The more multiple moms I’ve told about gaining 6 pounds in two weeks, the more I hear to enjoy it. A lot of people tell me the further along I get the harder it is to eat much or have much room with twins pushing up against everything. That makes sense. I’m still not overdoing it. I’m just eating what I want, when I’m hungry.
I think I need some calcium because I’m still craving frozen yogurt 🙂 I randomly wanted toast with peanut butter, bananas & honey after dinner last night. I loved it.
The heat is already getting to me and I guess it’s not really considered hot yet, haha. I’ve always been hot natured so this should be interesting.
I pee a lot.
I get really thirsty in the evenings.
More often, I’m getting when you are do? How much longer? etc. comments/questions. Pretty use to it now. They can also be pretty funny reactions…and sweet! Always followed by is this your first?
The nursery is coming right along. We had a bit of paint delay as Brent has been down this week. We have all the furniture here/ordered except a dresser/changing table. I found something I like on Craig’s List that will work for both and we are going to check it out on Saturday morning. So, that is all pretty exciting! I can’t wait for it to be done and sit in it 🙂
We are hoping to go register in the next few weeks. If you weren’t reading last year, we did register with Cohen, but decided not to have a shower and never bought anything. So, I deactivated the registry. I had a lovely brunch and people brought gift cards for us to use as needed. Luckily, I have those and will be able to buy a few of the larger items! So thankful.
The twins will be so thankful to have SUCH cute goodies 🙂 I have SUCH sweet friends, as you will see below. The past few weeks, Knox and Sloane have received some beautiful things. I love each and every one of them and I know they will as well. When something arrives and Brent’s at work, I always text him a picture right away so he can share excitement, haha. At first I thought of course I want to post and share and then I thought well maybe I will wait that way they can model all of their goods, haha. For now (or at least this post) I’ll share a few 🙂
I know, I have an addiction of using picture apps on my phone. I just think it really brightens and changes up the iphone pics for the better 🙂
Tiffany sent these adorable smocked Arkansas bibs 🙂 I must admit, these are probably Brent’s favorite so far! I squealed when I opened the package!
Tanya from bekima knits made these little winter beanies. They are SO cute. I can see them in pictures their nana will take wearing them 🙂 I still snuggle with the blanket she made for Cohen.
Lanye gave us these super plush blankets that are SO soft 🙂 I like to cuddle these and I know they will, haha.
My sweet childhood friend, Katheryn, sent these gowns and I LOVE them. I’ve shared my love for the gowns before, but I love these Ralph Lauren ones and they are matching, but yet different colors.
One of Brent’s childhood friends, that now lives in Switzerland with his wife and two boys, came in town recently. His wife gifted us these little handmade booties. They are precious! I guess in the hospital there, all babies get them! So, she had some made for Knox & Sloane 🙂
Karah sent these sweet onesies. They are pretty fitting for us, right? She knows our love for doggies 🙂 The twins will love these!
Adorable huh? 🙂
I’m pretty proud of myself for taking so many belly pictures lately. I think I have the urge to do it so much for a few reasons. This might be my last pregnancy; I’m still in shock there are two babies in my belly; I also think the further along I get, the less likely I will be to want to take any pictures. We’ll see.
The top set of pics are from today…via an office building bathroom. My shirts are getting short, haha. The rest are from yesterday. Since I’m going into the my office early on Friday mornings right now, I don’t have time to do normal camera before I leave. I posted a bare belly on Wednesday. I walked by a mirror and well, my belly caught my eye, haha. So, I snapped a picture.
At home w/ camera…
The picture with Cohen was on Valentine’s day of last year. It was about 3 days after we found out about his little heart. I forgot to have Brent do a side shot.
I’m hoping to load the pictures from the gender reveal dinner we did with our family. I will try to post those sometime next week!
Happy weekend 🙂
