Quick Ultrasound Update

I don't have the pictures scanned... maybe sometime this weekend. But they said everything looked good. Kyle is 1lb14oz and Emily is 1lb13oz... so they both gain 13oz since my last ultrasound. Their growth is still about 4% of each other (the goal is under 20%). Emily is still head down and Kyle is now in a transverse position (he was breached).
My mom and Michael got to go to my ultrasound with me and see the babies. I think it was different than they thought it would be... but it was fun to have them there!

A Trip to Michigan and a Trip to the Hospital

Last week we were able to go home to Michigan for a whole week! It's the longest we have been home since moving to Delaware. We left on Friday around 5 pm and got to my mom's house around 3:30 am on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon we had a baby shower with my family and friends in the area. It was a lot of fun and we got lots of things for Kyle and Emily. Saturday night we headed to Battle Creek to the Christmas musical at Calvary and then spent the night at Brent's parents' house. Sunday we went to Calvary for church, had lunch with Mom and Dad, Aunt Judy, Uncle Randy, and Aunt Debbie - and then headed back to Williamston on the snowy roads! Monday night we did Christmas with my family and then just kinda hung out until Wednesday. On Tuesday we were able to hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Johnson for a little bit. Wednesday night we headed back to Battle Creek. On Thursday we went to lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Cary and celebrated Christmas with them. Brent then headed to Indiana with Jason (his brother in law) to help move stuff, and I went to another baby shower with Brent's family and friends in Battle Creek. This shower was also fun and we got more things for Kyle and Emily! Friday we celebrated Christmas with Brent's family. Saturday we celebrated Grandma's 75th birthday, hung out with some friends, and playing games with Mom, Alyssa, and Shane. Sunday we went to Northeastern and Calvary for church. After church, my mom and Mike and Kara came down to meet us and we had lunch with them, Brent's parents and Alyssa and Shane. And then... we made the long trip back to Delaware. We had a great time in Michigan with all of our family and friends! Thank you to everyone who made our trip enjoyable and who took part in the Christmas celebrations and Baby Showers.

On Monday afternoon I started having really bad pain in my belly and it kept getting really hard. I called my doctor and they told me to head over to the hospital. Apparently I was really dehydrated and that's what was causing the problems. After checking to make sure everything was okay with the babies and getting my re-hydrated, I was sent home with instructions to drink LOTS of water. I have felt much better since - just have been exhausted.

22 Weeks and Baby Names!

For those of you that don't know yet, we have decided on names for our little babies. Our little girl is Emily Doris and our little boy is Kyle Myron.

Yesterday we had another ultrasound with Maternal Fetal. Both of the babies looked good and would not stop moving the whole time. Emily and Kyle are both about a pound and about a foot long. They are growing at a good rate and are withing 4% of each other. Emily is head down and Kyle is currently in a breech position. The other good news is that Emily's placenta has moved up more and I no long have placenta previa! I only got a couple pictures because both babies had their backs out, so it was hard to get pictures of their faces. I will try to get them scanned in the next couple days.

I go tomorrow and see my OB, so we'll see what she has to say. Hopefully she will say everything is good too.

I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight finally. I never thought I would think gaining 20 pounds was a good thing... but in this case, it is very much a good thing!

In other news... our house is officially on the market!
