    The tech was giggling like crazy at how the boys were showing off their genitalia. So she printed a couple of pictures for us, every time I look at them I laugh myself and I put them on the fridge lol

    26 weeks!!

    Well. Another week has flown by. A maximum of 11 weeks until baby time! DH seems to think the babies will come on their own before 37 weeks, some days I agree based on how hard this is on my body. But most of the time I am confident we will have to be induced lol

    A few announcements for you ladies.....

    We picked names finally! My boys will be Bradley & Zachary. No middle names yet, but its a start. You guys are actually the first people we have told! We will name them based on birth order.

    I know, I know... My #1 name (Brayden) is gone. My EX-brother in law just had a son two weeks ago and named him Brayden of all things and it totally ruined it for meeeee. I didn't want my Maggie to have a brother and a first cousin named Brayden. Ugh.

    ALSO, I found out from my own Mother who couldn't help but just TELL me, that my Baby Shower is this Sunday!!! I'm so excited!! Sadly DH will be out of out state on business, I really wanted him to be there. But I have a Big Sister t-shirt for DD and I'll dress her all up for it. I'll try and share pics Sunday or Monday.

    And here is this week's belly. Hard to believe I still have an innie belly button, but it is super deep to begin with and never popped with DD. I'm curious what that might look like!

    Yay for names and a shower! You look awesome too! My belly button is super deep too and never popped with DD1 either, lol. I guess it's kind of nice in a way because I don't think that would be very comfortable. You've got enough to handle carrying twinsies!

    OK! The site hasn't been working for me all day but I'll try now. BABY SHOWER was amazing and better than I imagined. I was nervous all morning about being the center of attention but it was great. Lots of surprise guests, my registry was bought out except for small things that I can easily pick up myself. I have lots of doubles to return and I'll probably get diapers with the money! I did get 8 packs of diapers but clearly with twins I will needs sooo many. Lots of matchy matchy clothes which I love. The bigger items include, a hand me down second crib, the Arms Reach bassinet, lots of gift cards, highchair, both car seats! I need to start sorting but I just kind of like looking at the mess right now.

    People kept complimenting me on how great I look, which was nice to hear because I feel ginormous. We played the game where people cut the ribbon to guess how big my belly is. most ribbons were way too big so I must look as huge as I feel. LoL

    I was so happy that I avoided the baby Name question from everyone! I handmade some untraditional thank you notes. Let me know what you guys think! I wanted to say thank you but also announce the boy's names to everyone outside of Facebook. And I wanted to avoid telling in person because everyone and their mother has SO many opinions about names! And we are dead set now and I don't wanna hear it.

    Also a sneak peek at the nursery.

    I see now my pics are really big and a little blurry, sorry about that. The tree was the guestbook at the shower. Everyone who came used their fingers to put fingerprints on the tree, and its something I can hang in the nursery. I just LOVE it.

    I love your thank you card and that you're using it to reveal the names. Great idea!

    28 WEEKS! I can hardly believe it. 9 weeks until my induction if the twins haven't come on their own yet.

    Highlights of the past week or so:
    HUGE burst of energy. I feel pretty great, sleeping well, people are telling me I am glowing and I actually feel like I am glowing a bit. I am sure the next "wall" is just around the corner but I am really enjoying this week so far.

    OB Appointment today at 3:00, I have to drink my GD drink beforehand, here's hoping I pass! I am also hopeful I will get another sheet for an U/S for a growth scan. I want to see my boys and see how much they weigh now, and see if they are still head down. It feels that way, but you never know!

    Having my first BHs ever! In the evenings after standing too long to do dishes, etc I start having them. This is all new to me as I never had any with DD. And the compression stockings are doing the trick, very happy to take them off when I get home and have skinny ankles.

    My coworkers let me know they are throwing me a baby shower October 8th, it was nice of them to give me a heads up! They mentioned they would be buying diapers and all going in on one big giftcard. SO NICE! I feel so thankful for the outpouring of love for these boys.

    And here's the belly today!

    Ob appointment update: went in for my 28 week appt, the Doctor was kissing my Big ol' Butt the entire time. I am guessing my Aunt made sure he knew how upset he made me the last time with the weight comment! He even told me how great I looked Bahaha. And didn't mention my weight gain (3lbs in 4 weeks). He hugged me as I left and I guess all is forgiven. So Yay.

    Fundal height of 38 weeks and I definitely look the part. Used the doppler for heartbeats. Got the flu shot which I have never done, even when not pregnant. Feels like my arm is going to fall off!!! He gave me a slip for a growth scan next week. Yay!! Now I'm starting appointments every two weeks. Hooray for the third trimester.

    Wow lovely pic of the boys!!! 1.5 hours waiting I would be peeved too. This is why I always take the very first appt in the mornings as this will ensure that I don't have to wait unless someone goes into labor.
