11w3d "Growing"

Today's appointment was pretty routine, and the nurses didn't do much to make it feel otherwise. I was the only one there but I still felt like I was totally rushed through my ultrasound. Maybe just in comparison to last week when the nurse was real slow and just let me watch them kicking around for a minute. I don't really have much to complain about though. They are doing well. They are big - like 2 inches long now! They were moving like crazy so it was really hard to hear the heartbeats. Actually we only got one's heart rate, but they are both still beating! I was a little worried they wouldn't grow very well this week because I was pretty nauseous and didn't eat too much. But today was the first day they measured days ahead of me. Usually they measured 2 days behind but they were 2 days ahead today. Not too big of a difference, but I was surprised! (who knows how accurate those things are though)

Since we are going ahead with the shower in the end of May, I have been registering for baby stuff. This has been very weird and a little overwhelming. First of all, I have no idea what I want and need for a baby, let alone twins. There are some many items available, and I am sure 90% is unnecessary. Plus it is just weird to think about buying things for our babies. I am still in my first trimester (almost done though!). I can't picture baby stuff in our house yet. So I feel like I have just registered for this that and the other and we'll see what I still want in 6 months. It is a strange feeling to be having a baby shower for me. Exciting, overwhelming and a little unnerving.


  1. Glad the ultrasound showed them doing well! Have fun registering!

  2. That's wonderful that everything is looking good, and they're growing like champs! Oh wow - registering. I bet that's weird...

  3. Oh my goodness I've been having so much fun working on my registry. I am using an alternative gift registry that lets me register for stuff from all different places. I actually have a Baby registry and a Mama registry! Will you share some of what you've registered for?
