18 weeks and counting...

We are now well into the second trimester. For twins, I'm about half-way. It's nice to look at it that way. We had our doctor's appointment this past Thursday and everything looks great. The babies are huge! They can't get them in one screen on the ultrasound! We got to hear their heartbeats and see them wave their arms and kick their legs. Dr. England suspects that they are both girls (Aislee and Olivia). Paul's pretty excited! Quizno's for dinner...! We have a consult set up for Wednesday, the 23rd with a specialist to figure out what type of twins they are and how they're developing and truly whether or not they are boys or girls. We're looking forward to finding out more about them! I registered at Babies-R-US after our appointment. I figured that it's safe to now pick some pink clothes and blankets. I've never been a big fan of pink. I wear it sometimes to make me feel a little more feminine, but I like my greens and blues. So, I'm not too excited about ALL the pink. I picked out some sage green, which is my favorite color, and some yellow things along with the pink. We were thinking of doing a ducky theme when we get a two bedroom apartment. I have this yellow duck a babysitter gave to me when I was little. Paul thinks it's pretty cute and thought of the "ducky nursery" idea. He's gonna be such a good daddy!

I love hearing all the updates!! and I'm so glad you are doing better now. Your poor arm is probably bruised up and down though. But at least its helping you to be able to eat! Tell the babies I say to keep growing big and strong.

I am sooo sorry that you are still sick! LeAnn, my sister-in-law, was like that! NOT FUN! But...at least you get two out of it instead of being that sick for one...right!?!;) Those are adorable names and I am so excited for you guys! Good luck with everything!
