26 Weeks

Not a whole lot to report.  The babies are very active.  It's fun watching them move all around.  A first this week was feeling some hiccups.  Kynley had them during church Saturday night.  I'm still hanging in there.  Thanks to my chiropractor I'm moving around pretty well.  My main issue at this point is being out of breath all the time.  The smallest things leave me huffing and puffing - feeling like I've run 5 miles.  I took the Glucose Test at my last appointment and they said if I didn't hear from them, that meant I passed.  It's been a week and I never heard anything so I'm assuming that means I tested negative for gestational diabetes.  So that's good news.  It's hard to believe that in less than 3 months the girls will be here and we'll be a family of 5.  Can't wait!

25 Weeks

I had an appointment with my OB today.  It was pretty uneventful which is never a bad thing these days.  My uterus is measuring 29 weeks.  The babies are doing well and getting bigger every day.  We're hoping to make it at least another 10 weeks.

While I was in the room with the doctor Brandon decided to ask Taylor what she was looking forward to the most about having baby sisters.  Her answer  - "You guys will be so occupied with the babies that I'll be able to sneak out."  I think we might be in trouble.

24 Weeks

24 Week Belly:

I had an appointment today with the specialist.  Both babies weigh approximately 1lb, 7oz and they are both head down right now.  I really hope they like that position and stay in it!  As usual, they were super active.  The u/s tech always seems surprised at this.  Addyson was arching her head back, acting as if she can't wait to get out and stretch.  Her head is closest to my cervix which certainly explains a lot.  

Here's Addyson:

And here's Kynley:

22 Weeks

Here we are at 22 weeks.  Getting bigger by the day.  I've been steadily gaining 2 to 2 1/2 pounds each week for the past several weeks.  The goal is to gain at least 40 and if I continue on this path, I won't have any problems reaching that goal.  We want these girls to get big!  The bigger they are, the less of a chance they have of needing NICU time.  I had an appointment last week with my OB and all is well.  I was about 21 weeks at the appointment but measured 23.  Every day tasks seem to get a little harder each day.  I'm out of breath quite often, even while just talking or reading to Taylor.  It's hard to believe that at this point in my pregnancy with Taylor, I hiked to the top of Diamond Head in Honolulu.  Here's the proof:

First of all, I don't even look pregnant.  Second, I had just hiked up a mountain!  Two things that are certainly different this go around.    Not that I'm complaining - just wanted to document the difference.  Grow, babies, grow!
