Twinning at 17 Weeks

This pregnancy is slowly inching by, so I thought it was about time I shared a bump picture! 17 weeks.... I could be halfway right now, but I sure hope not! I am hoping when we get down to Vegas my new doctor will tell me he is totally fine with my going all the way to 40 weeks as long as the babies are happy, healthy, and not too squished. We will see... a lot of twin pregnancies are induced by 38 weeks, so it depends on a lot of different factors.

These two babies are about the size of two onions, and at our last appointment it looked like we have two girls on our hands! They are pretty positive about Baby B who was not camera shy, but we still need to confirm our modest Baby A at the next ultrasound. I am feeling a lot better now. No nausea, with exception to the occasional teeth brushing sickness. I have a bit more energy, but am still exhausted for the most part, and my appetite is coming back! Hooray! The main side effect of twin pregnancy for me has been the frequent pelvic pressure/pain that I experience almost all day long. Oh... and the lower back pain. It really isn't that bad though as long as I make sure to sit/lay down frequently.

In other news, Ezra started nursery today! He loved it. Although a bit hesitant at first, he was grinning from ear to ear when I went to pick him up. They nursery leaders said he didn't cry at all and was very good the whole two hours. And what a glorious two hours that was for me and Joe as well. We are still teaching sunbeams, but it is so much easier without little boy underfoot. Even after church was easier once we picked Ezra up. He was the happiest I've seen him on a Sunday in months. Once we got home he couldn't stop laughing and hugging me. Pure joy was bubbling out of him. I love nursery.

I didn't get a picture of Ezra going to nursery, but here are two from going on walks, Ezra's favorite activity. The first is him and Joe trekking out to feed the ducks. The second is at Discovery Park, the best kids park ever.
