20 Weeks Pregnant | Twins

We're officially more than half way there! 

(Full Term Singleton Pregnancies are 40 weeks, Full Term Twin Pregnancies are 38 weeks)

Last week we had another ultrasound and our 19 week checkup, all are healthy and happy!  And we were able to officially confirm genders!!  At our 15 week ultrasound our Dr.s were 90% sure of the sex.  So, it's nice to finally refer to them by their gender rather than by "baby" or "it".  And yes, I'll reveal gender(s) on the blog soon.  I'm feeling good, my appetite is back in full force ~ an extra scoop of ice cream?!  Yes Please!  And I'm finding walking to be super helpful for circulation and my overall well being.  This week was the first week that strangers really commented on my bump.  Even had a couple people say

So, due any day now?...

ha, not even close.  Brian was able to get away on a fishing trip with his Dad, so I went down to Charleston to spend time with my Mom.  It was fun talking motherhood with her and shopping around town ooing and awing at all things baby...I officially have the nesting bug!  I'm so grateful this pregnancy is going smoothly and everyday it seems more real that our home will soon double in size!  Below are some more highlights from the week:
