I had another dr. appt yesterday. I hadn't been for 4 weeks, which I usually go every 2 weeks, so it had been a while. Travis insisted on that he was going, which he doesn't really need to go, because they just weigh me, take my blood pressure, listen to the heartbeats and answer any questions. So, he showed up (20 minutes late, but showed up nontheless) and he's so cute in the appointment because he loves asking questions and he's so involved. It's quite adorable!
So, my blood pressure was a bit high. Nothing to be alarmed about, but something to be aware of. Also, I only gained 2 pounds, which makes 14 pounds so far. My belly measured to be 32 weeks!!! That means my belly is BIG! I am only 23. Obviously it will be bigger because there are 2 babies, but it's starting to get uncomfortable. Dr. Larsen told me that when I deliver I'll measure to be about 60-70 weeks, which is just GIGANTIC!!! Travis couldn't believe it. The dr. said that i'll be like 2 basketballs and that my long torso is a plus to have because it'll give them more room.
Travis and I are having maternity pictures taken. I figure it'll be a really good keepsake, since most likely this will be my only pregnancy. There is a local photographer that takes such amazing pictures. We have an appointment next week to figure out what we are going to do exactly, so hopefully within the next couple months we'll get them taken. Here is the link to his website to check his work out: http://www.rossjamesphotography.com/
I also started water aerobics!!!! Mon-Fri at 10 am. Me and 30 grandma's!! I love it and it's so refreshing and makes my belly feels completely weightless!
I am starting to get a bit bored. But, I am also starting to get more uncomfortable, so it's nice to not have to go to work. Yesterday, I had my dr. appt, then Travis and I went to breakfast, then we came home and he took a nap and I watched cooking shows (my new obsession!) with the dogs. It was a nice morning. Then, I met Travis's sister's and mom for a late lunch to celebrate his sister, Audrey's birthday. I am lucky to have 7 sister-in-law's that are the best!! I love all of them! Especially to be away from my family and friends, it's nice to have them around. So, yesterday was super busy!!! I actually got dressed and put make up on in the moring. This weekend, we are going to organize, organize, organize!!! Get all the stuff cleared out of the babies room. SO exciting!!!!
Anyways, so I PROMISE to put pics up. I know I am bad, but by the time Travis gets home to take them, I am already in sweats and do not want to have my picture taken.

So, this past weekend I was able to go over to Seattle on Wednesday and get a lot done. First off, I can't believe that I used to live over there........I can't stand the traffic and rain. I don't think it stopped raining the entire time and when you have naturally curly hair, it's not a good picture!! I am actually glad to be back in my little town of Ellensburg. Back to the simple life. However, I sure wish Ellensburg got a PCC or a Whole Foods.
I was able to get so much stuff done!!! My mom bought me the cribs and dresser/changing table. It's white and I don't have any pics of it bc it's not sold online, however they are so cute. I also picked out the fabric for the bedding, which my mom is going to make for me. I LOVE it!! I am going to have the cutest nursery ever!! I found exactly what I was looking for. My colors are light pink, chocolate brown and ivory for the girls bedding and light blue, chocolate brown and ivory for the boys. It's a stipes and polka dot combination and together..... it'll be so pretty!!! I can't wait to post pics of when it'll be done, which won't be for another month or so..........
I also did lots of shopping for baby clothes. I can't resist. There are so many cute things out there! I bought the outfits for coming home from the hospital, which I have had my eye on for a while. Janie and Jack has the CUTEST clothes and they even have premie sizes. Maureen also bought the little ones lots of outfits, she couldn't resist! Pottery Barn just opened a clothing store where you can get what you purchased embroidered. Needless to say, my trunk was full and Travis thinks that they won't need to go shopping until they are teenagers. I tell him though, that I am shopping for two and they need lots of outfits because they'll change a lot throughout the day and grow so fast!!
I start my water aerobics tomorrow. I am going to try to go 5 days a week. I need some sort of exercise. I can't just do nothing, but it's too uncomfortable to walk on the treadmill. My belly is getting bigger and bigger everyday. The babies are moving so much, which I love. I haven't had a dr. appt in 4 weeks, but I go in on Thursday. He'll probably schedule me for another ultrasound within the next couple weeks.
We have been trying to pick out names. Picking out names is so much harder than I thought it would be. I guess we still have a while before anything is set in stone, but I need to get the wooden letters for the walls. So far, we are thinking Presley for the girl and Cole for the boy. That is as of our conversation last night. The boy name ususally changes on a weekly basis, so we'll see next week.
Things are going well around here. Hunting season is over for the next few weeks, so I'll be able to spend some time with my husband. Then it's my baby shower, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and my last month of being pregnant. It's almost over......I can't believe it's gone by so fast!! I just am hoping the next 3 months will go by smooth. I don't want to be on bed rest or be very uncomfortable.
Well I'll post some belly pics tomorrow. I hope everyone is doing well.

So, I am trying to post some pictures from this weekend, but our computer is being awful, so it'll take me a while.
I had my dr. appt last week and everything is going well. Just getting bigger by the day it seems. My belly measured 27 weeks, which is about 7 months pregnant and I am only 20 weeks, so my belly is quite big. If I were pregnant with just one baby, i'd just be starting to show, but these babies are getting bigger and bigger. Right now they are about 7 inches and weigh almost a pound each. I can feel them all the time now. It's such a neat feeling. Travis felt one kick the other night for the first time, he loved it. I gained another 2 pounds, which is good, since I haven't been working out.
That is about it. Not really anything to update you all on right now. I am going to start the nursery this month. I am going to pick out fabric for the bedding and window treatments next week with my mom. I know for sure it's going to be 1/2 blue, 1/2 pink, but I am not quite sure on patterns yet.
Anyways, I have been just a little busy bee around the house, trying to get organized before the twinies come. I have actually accomplished quite a few projects! Travis is off hunting for the rest of the month, so he'll be gone a lot, but I'll be busy decorating and shopping:) I feel great. I just feel big. It is horrible to get dressed bc nothing really fits right and you just want to wear sweats and t-shirts, so that is what I have been doing. Luckily the weather here is getting cold! Anyways, off the the gym. I am going to attempt it again this week. I have no idea why though, my body has been taken over........
I miss you all and I will get more pics up as soon as my computer is better.
