23 weeks, how are you here already? We are going to have two babies in less than 100 days, how incredible. We saw the OB yesterday and she is pleased with everything. Our little man is measuring in the 67th percentile while our little lady is in the 46th percentile. She said there is an 8% size difference which is perfectly fine, and that everything looks GREAT. I have only gained 4lbs thus far, and when I brought it up she said “You are pregnant with twins and have only gained 4lbs, don’t question it, shit!” We absolutely love her – I don’t know why but Devan and I trust people more when they swear. Dr. B said that we will know around 30/32 weeks if I will need a C-section or not – she said if they’re breach around that time it’s very unlikely they will turn around because they won’t have a lot of room – at that point I will schedule a c-section if need be, and have an ultra sound right before to confirm they’re still breach since a c-section is not my ideal way to deliver. When she brought the heart doppler out she found Harper right away but little Elliott was squirming around in there like a crazy person, Dr. B referred to him as a “little shit” LOL! All in all the appointment went very well and our little babies are doing spectacular! My next appointment in early October will be a long appointment – I do my first glucose test, I’m hoping I pass the 1 hour test so I don’t have to go through the 3 hour test!
Devan already wrote a post all about the nursery construction you can read that HERE and see all of the pictures. I wanted to touch on it too. We had such a GREAT weekend. Michael was in town and agreed to help us with the nursery. It made me sad that he and Jeffrey moved to Utah because we had so much fun it reminded me of old times. The four of us have been through some shit together as friends and we always see it through – I couldn’t be happier about that. We spent the weekend renovating, playing bingo, going to a bar for our brother in laws 25th birthday and eating until we hated ourselves. While we were at the bar I was introduced to a young lady that was sucking down a cigarette – I was then told “she is the one who is newly pregnant” without being able to contain myself I said “YOU’RE PREGNANT, DID YOU WANT ME TO GET YOU A BEER TOO?” Whoops, my bitchiness came out but oh well. I just thought of all of you, about how you would give up a lung to have a baby and this bitch is sucking down cancer while she was carrying the gift of life inside of her.
On to a more positive thing, while Devan and Michael were priming the floors I went with Lisa and Kaitlyn to goodwill and got an entire maternity outfit for $10.00! Score! The pants I bought were even a size smaller than the ones I paid $50 for at Motherhood – same brand though! (Ignore our messy room)
Lisa and Kaitlyn also made Harper & Elliott these sick onesies – they’re so sweet, and are already spoiling the shit out of these babies.
I couldn’t ask for better friends! Devan’s mom just texted me with a picture of a laundry basket full of baby blankets, wash cloths, socks etc. saying “Grandma has added to her stock!” How the hell did we get so lucky?! Our babies are coming into a world full of more love than anyone could ask for.
Here are some other pictures I snapped this weekend — A picture of the clothes hanging up in the nursery (all of the shorts and what not have now been put in an organizer until we buy our dresser!)
These sick crab shoes I bought for $2 at Babies R Us for when we go to the lake, it matched perfectly with this outfit…
Baby Kimball and Elliott striking the same pose – NO PICTURES PLEASE!!! ❤

HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE!! ❤
