Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

My little June Bugs @ 21 weeks

Picture was taken at work. Nice boring white walls ;)

How far along? 21 Weeks!

Baby's Size? The girls are now the size of a banana!
Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion, and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, if baby is a girl, her womb is now stocked up with her lifetime supply of six million eggs (the number will drop to around one million by birth).

Weight Gain? 13 lbs

Maternity Clothes? All maternity pants. I desperately need some shirts but I hate shopping so I keep putting it off.

Stretch marks? Not yet.

Belly button in or out? The top part is starting to poke out. Especially if I'm really full.

Sleep? Stinks!!!

Foods I am loving? Everything. Ice water, lots and lots of ice.

Foods I am hating? Nothing new

Best moment this week? Getting the cribs set up with the bedding in!

Movement? Yes, I love it. DH has even been able to feel it. So amazing!

Symptoms? stuffy nose backaches, hips and shoulder pains while sleeping, and a new one this week. My hands have been swelling.

Genders? Two girls

What I miss? Not having to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

What I'm looking forward to? My showers! Even though they are still almost two months away.

Weekly Wisdom: Don't sleep in your wedding ring.

Milestone: Being 5 months! woo hoo

Emotions: Excited.
