It's me K....

Okay, okay...sorry its been so long! My two little dudes are back to school and keep me enjoyably busy!

Here's whats been going on....

  • HOLY ABDOMEN GROWTH, for a while it was changing maybe every two weeks, now it seems to be daily, perhaps hourly if you ask my co-workers! I'm getting really big sometimes I even catch myself waddling after a long day on my feet in surgery!
  • Heart burn - I had it with my boys and it has returned, even earlier! Drinking milk and Tums seems to help, I'm so grateful!
  • Movement - I've been feeling the faint bubbles popping for a few weeks I'd say, and now last night B was practicing his ninja kicks as Niki told you, and later while laying in bed I'm pretty sure A did a complete position change, I felt the most graceful, gentle, swish...all the while N&J's ninja never let up (perhaps his baby sister was sick of the ninja kicking and thought a change of scenery might help, who knows). Yes, I've made my mind up A is a girl and B is a boy, these are of course, just "feelings" we'll know for certain in just four short weeks.

My mom and I are hosting Niki's shower for our side of the family, kind of early as I wanted to help mom and needed to be on my feet and able, we have had so much fun coming up with ideas, twins makes it even more fun. She is so deserving of a special day honoring her (and J of course).

I've been thinking ahead to the month of January specifically and praying for no bed rest, I will obey but may go crazy, I don't stop most days. So I've been telling that sweet angel Myles and my angel Daddy, to keep me strong and keep his siblings growing and perfect, I'm certain they'll help...anything to see his mommy and daddy smile!



Enjoy the fall weather, stay positive and keep supoorting our Niki!

I always love coming over and seeing that you've posted! I love hearing your take on all that going on.

Go go Ninja! Let Princess sleep sometimes though!

LK said...

You may be right on the sexes! I am mom to b/g twins, and it was indeed the boy who was the ninja and constantly punching and kicking, and the girl whose movements were more gentle. (Of course, at age 3, my girl is the feistier one and my boy is the sensitive soul - go figure.) Thanks for posting. I can't believe how far along you are already. :)

Niki said...

K, it's always a highlight for you to post on the blog! I love, love, love to repeatedly hear you tell me (and others) about our babies! You are doing such a wonderful job caring for our babies and we just can't thank you enough! You are an amazing, beautiful woman and you know how much J and I love you!

Oh my goodness, K! Almost 16 weeks now! I can't believe how fast this has all gone.

You're an inspiration, as always.

Thank you for giving Niki and J the ability to bring Ninja and Princess into their lives!

Happy baking K.... you are awesome!

Kim said...

K- you have such an amazing heart and I enjoy coming and hearing all updates. I will pray for no bed rest given I am sure I too like to stay busy and I'm sure it's easy to go crazy when you are restricted to bed all day.

Katie said...

Lovely post, made me smile.

Angela Grace said...

great update!

Jacinta said...

K, this is such wonderful news. I am a couple of days behind you guys with a singleton and I am nodding my head in agreement.
Take care of yourself! I think you are amazing!

Oh lovely cousin K!!! (It's weird for me to try to call you "K" since I know you in real life, but I will try to respect your privacy.) Your post was super sweet and cute and made me feel all warm and fuzzy. You are indeed an amazing woman! P.S. I didn't know you were hosting the shower! I would have done it... Aren't you already doing enough?!?!? ;-)

I think it is especially cute that Baby A and Baby B have now become known as 'Princess' and 'Ninja,' respectively. That is far too sweet. I've thought the whole time that there is a boy and a girl bun baking in that oven, and my suspicions are being confirmed with these early pregnancy symptoms. Won't I be surprised if Niki & J end up with two girls or two boys!

And I too can confirm that with my pregnancies, Anais (girl) was so gentle and smooth and acrobatic in her in utero movements and Henry (boy) was all fierce and quick and strong with his.

I can hardly wait til October 20th!!!
