24 Week Appointment

Had a TERRIFIC appointment today! My wonderful Aunt, Carolyn, went with me since Dan is out of town for training in Salina - I was so glad she was there so I wasn't alone (I always fear that I'll get bad news while I'm by myself!).

Everything looks just great. My cervix is still nice and long just under 4.1 (stay away, preterm labor!) and I've gained a total of 22 lbs.

Both babies are in a position we hope they'll stay - head down!

And I'm now measuring, drum roll please . . . 34 weeks. Gulp. No wonder the moms at the park keep asking me when I'm due!

We go back for a growth scan for the babies on May 5th, so get ready for more pictures of our growing boys!

The names have been picked!

Baby A will be Tucker Ray

and

Baby B will be Hunter Daniel



We have already had a lot of people tell us they're not thrilled about the name Tucker - but honestly, we couldn't care LESS what everyone else thinks! We love the name and even know a few Tuckers that have helped us grow even fonder of the name. We also love the 'er' theme we're sticking with: Cooper, Tucker and Hunter.

We hope everyone likes the names as much as we do. And please, do NOT remind us of what the name 'Tucker' rhymes with - we just think that's silly!

21+ Week Appointment

Went well!

Babies have turned down and are no longer transverse - Baby A is head down and Baby B is head up, but they still have time to turn all over the place.

Heartbeats were 154 and 150. Both babies were VERY active!

I'm 21.5 weeks, and measuring 28 weeks, so right on target.

I gained some more weight, and am up to a total of 18 lbs gained - EXCELLENT! They wanted me to gain 20 lbs by 20 weeks, and that didn't happen. But I'm at 18 lbs and almost 22 weeks - I've made good progress!

And the best news of all - my cervix is measuring a WHOPPING 4.1!!!!!
