20 weeks!


I am 20 weeks today and it marks the midpoint of my pregnancy! I can't believe I am finally here. It seemed that it took forever. People tell me that it starts go faster now. I know this second half of my pregnancy the weather will soon to be warmer and more activities going on to make it go faster. Though I know when I am around 30 weeks, I need to slow things down since I will be 7 weeks away from delivery, if not sooner. So I guess you can say, I am more that halfway.

Average size of babies are about 6 1/2 inches long and 10.6 oz. My boys genitals are now fully formed. The babies skin covering the body is now starting to grow 2 layers, the epidermis and dermis.

Mom is feeling great and is happy that the pregnancy has been uneventful, except the surprise of us finding out we are having twins 2 weeks ago. :-) We have bought the cribs and got a great price! Target was having a baby sale and the crib we got had great reviews! I can't wait to set them both up in the nursery. It has came to my attention by my brother that there is no need for 2 cribs. He says to get a large crib and split it in half w/ cardboard or WORST he mentioned buying a twin size bed and surround it with chicken wire. I really hope he does not have mulitples bc I can actually see him do the cardboard thing. I am still having problems trying to find bedding. I like so many, but have to keep the budget since we are paying for 2 of them now. I think a trip to Ikea will be made for dressers :-)

Here is the crib we got.

I am SOOOO excited for you both! :) You'll have to let me know when you pick your "color scheme." (wink, wink) :D

The crib looks great.
