16 weeks!

Today/Tomorrow, we are officially 16 weeks pregnant....yahoo!!

The babies are doing A LOT of growing right now. In the next few weeks they will DOUBLE their weight, and add INCHES to their length. No wonder I am so tired =).

This weekend I have been just EXHAUSTED, and feeling a little under the weather. Since there are just so many scary things going around right now, I have pretty much laid low all weekend and not done much of anything (including my hair, as you will see in the below picture).

Here is a belly pic for 16 weeks:

Yup. Definite Bumpage.

And I love it!! It's so fun to really be showing and looking like a pregnant person (even if my rear end is getting bigger too! HA!)

I have waited years to be pregnant, and I am just loving it. I rub my belly all the time, and people ask me "oh, are they moving?" I can't feel them just yet, but I just LOVE to feel my round belly! When I catch glimpses of myself in the mirror or a reflective window, I usually stop and just stare for a moment...I still can hardly believe it!!

I lay in bed at night and rub my stomach and talk to the babies and pray for them. It's just so surreal to me at times that there are two amazing miracles growing inside me. Thank you, Lord.

Here's a pic BabyCenter.com has of what the twinkies look like this week:

Amazing. Simply amazing.

Although, I personally feel this BabyCenter.com chick better start pooching out a little more with her belly, or she and I are going to have some words soon!!!! That's hardly a baby belly they have on her!!!!! If she doesn't start looking bigger soon, she will officially be banned from my blog =).

A week from tomorrow we have our next ultrasound! I can hardly wait to see them again. It's been fun for Dave and I to see your votes here on the blog. Looks like boy/girl is winning so far! But boy/boy and girl/girl are tied with 11 votes each. The suspense continues... =)

I actually changed my vote! I had boy/girl originally, but I'm starting to feel like there's two girlies in there. Who knows?

Well, God knows.

But, who on this EARTH knows?

I can't wait to hold them and kiss them and put pictures of them up in my dorm :)
