18 Weeks

I'm 18 weeks pregnant with the twins!

According to Baby Center they are about 5&1/2 inches crown to rump (about the size of a bell pepper) and weigh about 7 ounces. They are doing a lot of flexing their arms and legs which I'm starting to feel!

I am doing really well. I just get tired after standing or walking for long periods. I think physical therapy is helping my back but the therapist said that I WILL lose my "standing stamina" and there's no way around that. Luckily I've been able to take a stool to work and I can sit down periodically if I need to, which helps tons.

Today Jeremy and I went to Pella to check out a home decorating store because we are in the market for a new coffee table and end tables. We ordered a new sofa which should be here in about three weeks and I wanted new tables to go with it. We didn't find our tables there but we did get some Dutch Letters and Windmill Cookies, which I'm sure I enjoy more! We also stopped at a little store on the square and found these:

They are little peepee covers for diaper changes! They have golf clubs and golf balls on them and I thought they were adorable so we had to get them!

Back to the tables, we did end up finding some we liked that weren't outrageously priced at Homemaker's and we are putting those together tonight. Well, Jeremy is anyway. I will do a post of our living room makeover when we get our couch and everything is all set up in a few weeks.

I hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. I love Babycenter!! It is very helpful at times (: I also love your pictures each week, its amazing how much you change through pregnancy in just one week. You'll be very thankful you have these pictures someday (:

  2. You look so fabulous! You truly have "that glow!!"

  3. Glad you are feeling good except for the back pain. I have it to and I just lay in bed all day. Congrats on the boy and girl! How exciting.
