And now, for a pregnancy update!

It seems that Paige bug is doing better. She woke up at 11 last night (after falling asleep at 7:30) with a wet diaper! I was so happy to see that. We offered her water and rocked and rocked her, but she wasn't having it. We decided to give her a bottle of milk, even though I wasn't sure about the dairy. But I knew it was the only thing she wanted - and I was right! She drank it and fell right asleep. I checked her room about every hour last night (yes, I'm that mom who has never had a sick kid, okay!!) and as of 8:32 AM, she is still sleeping and vomit-free : )

We are going in for a weight check this morning because I'm just nervous that she has lost weight. She is so skinny and has no room to lose any. I want to make sure that there isn't something else we should be doing.

Now onto my boys!!

I am so thrilled to be 18 weeks with twins and complication-free **knocks on wood**

I didn't bring my Doppler to Alaska. I didn't want anything to happen to it, and I didn't need anything extra in my suitcase! With my horrible allergies and congestion, I was taking sinus meds. I was pretty upset that I couldn't check on them at all. But I got home and found 2 perfect heartbeats right away! 145 and 150.

I THINK I might be feeling some baby taps. But not sure. With Paige, I didn't feel until 24 weeks, so I'm not expecting to be one of those gals who feels early.

As you can see from the pic below, I am really getting big. Stranger comments left and right.
"When is the baby due?" "Looks like someone is going to be a big sister!" It still shocks me! But I realize that I certainly do look pregnant.

Looking forward to meet with the MFM (maternal and fetal medicine) doctor a week from tomorrow for an ultrasound and consult. Hopefully, he thinks I am just fine and dandy and can stay with my OB. Regardless, the appointments are about to kick into high gear! Every 2 weeks after this next appointment, then starting at 28 weeks, twice a week for NSTs! It is going to be a pain to find sitters - but I will feel so much better knowing they are doing well in there!

So that's it! Happily ticking right along!
