20 Weeks Pregnant With Twins Update

We are at 20 weeks! I am very excited – I feel like every week I get through it a BIG deal – each morning I wake up and say. Okay you are 20 weeks and 1 day then the next day it is 20 weeks and 2 days. Slow and steady right? The big thing this week is going for the BIG ultrasound! Because we are having twins it took 2 hours – I was sore for days afterwards. I will have a separate post about that visit because some things did come up. In all we are moving forward – Eric finally has started to paint the nursery. We picked a nice grey with is perfect. The flooring in my office and the playroom is still an issue – but it gets resolved this week. I am chomping at the bit for them to put it in so I can start setting up the downstairs mini nursery.

I am also starting to get together my baby shower. My mom is hosting it but I am planning it – it is going to be pretty small since almost everyone I know is still in Los Angeles. I have been here for a few years so I have friends but nothing to the amount in Los Angeles. Good news is Eric’s mom is going to come out – so we need to make a new guest room in Eric’s office – another thing on the to do list.

I am feeling kicks now – and they do put me at ease. I do feel the girl much more than the boy who has his placenta in the front – I only feel him once or twice a day. I have not used the doppler all week and I hope not to use it for the rest of the pregnancy.

Here is an ultrasound of the twins 🙂
