We had our first appointment with the prenatal specialist ( i am high risk because of twins). We were there forever. She drew a detailed picture of our family history! Luckily we are both healthy and have healthy families. The Dr. said everything looked great. I am healthy they are healthy. Both babies are positioned great they have their own sac and placenta. They are only measuring 1 day apart(the girl in the lead). I will be induced if they don't come before 38 wks but she said she would be surprised if i made it that far, more likely 35-36 wks. The only thing they are watching right now is my weight. They want me to gain 40-50 pounds and I have only gained 4 1/2. So I was given permission to sit on my butt and eat. Nothing is off limits although healthy high calorie foods are the best.

This is our little girl. She did not want to cooperate today. She curled into a tight c shape. Her head is down and her chin is tucked into her chest.
Here is our little boy. He stuck his arm right in front of his face when she took the picture.
I know it is hard to tell but those are four little feet. The big blob on the left is the placenta of the boy.

Well I am just about half way there. 18 wks! Time is really flying by. My shirts are not fitting well anymore. Zach is getting more excited now that i am really starting to show. He can't wait until he can feel them move.

We were at the mall and saw these and had to get one for each. They look a little big but fit 0-3 months so they will fit well soon enough. This is our first purchase for the twins.
