The Newest Pics

I swear (raising my right hand) to try my hardest to not fall into the TAMN-esque ways of most first time mothers. That being said, most of my family has blogs and it's a great way to share the going-ons with everyone.

I had a referral appointment to Sacred Heart in Pensacola (45 min drive) on Monday for an 'official' ultrasound & for the first initial screenings. The Air Force base that we are stationed at has a hospital, with many things, but because I'm having twins they are taking a few extra precautions & will liberally be referring me to a Perinatalogist. Except for the drive, I don't mind because the more precautions, the better :o)




After my appointment on Thursday, and I saw & heard the heartbeats, I huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have been incredibly anxious since I found out I was pregnant because I didn't want to have another miscarriage, or tubal pregnancy. Sometimes I think the more you know, the worse it is!!!

This weekend I finally allowed myself to feel pregnant. I touched my stomach and thought about the babies growing inside, and I finally let Eric do the same. He was also very apprehensive because we both were so excited in March & immediately started to prepare, only to be very disappointed. But now, every time I find him on the computer he is looking at baby strollers, car seats, making lists, and we have to go to the baby section of whatever store we are in. I am floored at how excited he is & how involved he wants to be in planning every little detail.

We are still going to hold off on purchasing anything until after 20 weeks, just to be on the safe side. But, I am so grateful for all the well-wishes from everyone, it really means the world to me.

I still plan to work up until I am told not to, but I have no plans of putting myself, or the babies at any kind of risk! So, hop on & enjoy the ride as my family grows from 2 to 4 by March of next year :o)

We are so dang happy for you guys. Twins can you believe it? I know that Dan is so jellos. He said he always wanted twins (Not Me) and how fun that would be. When I told him he was practically jumping up and down with excitement for you. Any way we pray for you that things will go well (I know that they will this time) and hope you fell pretty good for the most part. So I will say it again CONGRATULATIONS twice!
