15 weeks!

Well, I am 15 weeks along!  I want to say that time is flying, but it feels like time is standing still!?! 

Baby B's profile!  What a sweet little face...for some reason, I think of Kacyn when I see this picture...

Baby A's profile, with a little blur of Baby B...

We had our 2nd ultrasound last Wednesday!  The babies are healthy and growing as scheduled.  Baby A's heart rate was 145 and Baby B's heartrate was 158!

My Baby Bump update on my phone says the babies are the size of navel oranges!  This seems HUGE!

So, here are my pregnancy updates!
How Far along: 15 weeks.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Lost 10 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Not yet...but I recently got the Bella bands in the mail, so I tried that out today!
Gender: Not sure!
Movement: Not yet
Sleep: A little better. I might only get up once to go to the bathroom, but Bella has been up and down like 10 times the past 2 nights...not sure if it is the storms we have been having, or what, but I hope she get settled down!
What I miss: Pepsi (even though I have some every now and then...shhhh...The U/S technicain (WHO I LOVE said she would drink a large Bojangles sweet tea every morning!)
Cravings: nothing really lately
Symptons: Just some food adversions and very sensitive nose

Best Moment this week: seeing our babies and having my parents be able to see the babies with us!
As I said earlier, we had our 14 week U/S last Wednesday.  I absolutely LOVE Eastern Carolina Women's Center in NewBern.  They are great to us!  My mom wanted to come for the U/S and when we went to pick her up from Cherry Point, daddy decided he wanted to go too.  Well, I hated for him to sit in the waiting room for over an hour, so I asked if he could come back...she let Blair and both my parents come in the U/S room!  They are GREAT!!
My mom was loving seeing her grandbabies and all my daddy could do was cry! ha!
The technician found the separating membrane right away this time which is a blessing!  They are in their OWN sac...but, she didn't rule out Identical quite yet.  She said she could only find where one egg was released, so they very well could be identical!!  We will know a lot more next U/S, which we should also be able to tell the sex. 
The technician couldn't get a definite picture, but got a really good guess on Baby B, but we are not spreading that news quite yet because she wasn't real sure...we will tell for sure after October 26 which will be our 18 week U/S!

This is a blurry picture of Baby B (facing down)...the circle to the left of the word Baby is Baby A's head.

This is Baby A (also looking down)...Check out those vertebrae, jaw bone and forehead!!!!

If you can read U/S's (which I couldn't do until I actually see them on the monitor), then you might see that the two babies are on top of each other.  Baby A is staring at the back of Baby B.

It is amazing to see these two little active miracles inside me.  They were feeling of each other and kicking each other already!  No wonder twins are so close!

Well, I think that is all for this week! 

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you..............." Jeremiah 1:5

It amazes me that God already knows my babies, knows what they will look like, knows when they will make their debut, knows what they will be when they grow up.  I thank him everyday for his blessings and wonder what I did to deserve all he has done for me.  This is a humbling thought...
