22 Weeks

I am 22 weeks pregnant with the twins!

I have been feeling better than last week. I'll have a couple of good days and a couple of bad days so I'm just trying to make the best of it. Again, please don't misunderstand, I'm not complaining and I wouldn't trade this for the world. I'm just documenting what's happening and how I'm feeling being pregnant. I think my feet are a little unhappy with how much weight I've gained. The perinatologist, Dr. Drake, recommends gaining 20 pounds by 20 weeks or 24 pounds by 24 weeks. I've got that! I have gained about 23 pounds! Apparently it is harder to gain weight the further along you are so they like to see patients gain weight up front with twins (or more). But like I said, my feet do NOT approve. Standing at work can be quite uncomfortable. I did buy a pair of Crocs this past weekend. Stylish - NO. Comfortable - YES.

Baby Center says the babies are 11 inches - the length of a spaghetti squash and are almost 1 pound! Their lips, eyelids and eyebrows are becoming more distinct and they have tooth buds forming!

The more exciting news this week is that we have decided on names! Now, I can't say any name is 100% certain until it is on the birth certificate. However, we are 99.9% sure - sure enough to buy personalized onesies!

And here they are:

I love that is just so happens Baby A is the girl - Ainsley and Baby B is the boy - Benson!

Also wanted to share an adorable gift the twins received from my friend Ashley.

They say "Mommy Loves Me" - how CUTE!

And she made this ADORABLE card

Thank you Ashley!!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

  1. I need a phonetic spelling of Ainsley, so I know how to pronounce, please. And does it mean something special? I love Benson!

    Glad you are feeling better. And it looks like all the weight is baby, you look fabulous!
