Well, nothing really new to report. Just thought I would check in. I can tell the babies are really growing this week. My tummy has been a little sore here and there, like they are really stretching things out! Tomorrow I will be 11weeks...one more week and I'm out of the first trimester! I will really breathe a sigh of relief at that point, because the risk of miscarriage goes down to like 2-5%, or something like that, after the first trimester. Although, I have to say, I really feel like these babies are going to make it. I truly believe God has them in his hands.

Other than that, Will and I are going to Ohio later this week. Its a nine hour drive, so we are going to stay overnight in VA on our way up there to split the trip up, since supposedly I'm supposed to get out and walk a bit every 2 hours or so. We will see how I do. We thought it would just be easier on me to only drive about 4-5 hours per day.

Then NEXT weekend, I am flying to Utah for a week. Hopefully I get an aisle seat on the plane! A few days after I get home from that I have my next Drs appt, and will be hearing my babies heartbeats, as well as seeing them again, Im sure. I will be 14 weeks at that point. So this month is going to be gone before I know it! Crazy how time just flies by...but not fast enough when you are pregnant! LOL

Hi Krysta,

Sounds like you are going to be one busy Momma.

You can rest assure that God has his hands on you and the babies. It's alright ! So fret not .

I wanted to encourage your heart tonight:

Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask,
believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you."

Mark 11:22-24

I just want to stop in and congratulate you on the twins! DS and his SO are having identical twins girls due September 14 but we are thinking closer to the end of August. At her first ultrasound she was told she was having boys. We got all excited about having boys. Then she had to have another ultrasound three weeks ago and the tech congratulated her on girls. She went for a final diagnosis and are working on girls names.
Anyhow, I am both excited and scared for them at the prospect of two babies at once, but I will be a good Nana and provide as much help as I can.

Again, congrats! Twice the Blessings, twice the fun, two little miracles instead of one!

Krysta: You sure are growing! I'm glad you're back from Ohio (I thought you were already in Utah, oops!)

Are you feeling those kiddies moving yet? Pretty soon, they're going to be taking up so much room. Since this is my second pregnancy, I'm feeling baby Poof a little easier than I felt DS. IT'S AWESOME!!!!

Well, I thought I would pop in and say that I am again going out of town, this time for a week. However, I might be able to get online once or twice, so you might hear from me before I get back. When I DO get back, I will be 2 days shy of 14 weeks!

Be blessed, Krysta!

Ephesians 3:16-21

" That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."

Well, I am back from my trip to Utah and tomorrow I will be 14 weeks exactly. I will take a picture and post it tomorrow. I feel like I have really grown the past two weeks since the last picture, I guess we will see!

I gained a bit of weight while I was on all my vacations. I will find out the official number on Tuesday at my Dr's appointment. I'm actually glad, since I was getting worried that I hadn;t gained ANYTHING in my entire first trimester! ANd now that I am back home and feeling better, I am going to try to eat as healthy as possible, while still getting in enoguh calories. One of the hard things is that Will is gone till the end of August, so when he is gone, I just eat frozen dinners. I dont want to get the Lean Cuisine types, cause of how low the calories are, but at the same time, I dont want to get super high fat/cal ones. I'm not sure what to do...get the low cal ones and supplement with more food, or just eat the higher cal ones and add more veggies/fruit, etc. to make it more healthy? I do seem to eat fairly light during the day...High Fiber cereal for breakfast, or some LC wheat bread w/sf pb and yogurt and fruit, and Lunch is usually some kind of sandwich and fruit and cottage cheese or milk, etc. Then I snack on more fruit and yogurt or whatever. I'm trying to get in more calcium, so I am consciously drinking alot more milk, etc. So maybe a high cal dinner isnt that bad after eating light during the day? Anyway...anybody have any thoughts?

I am also considering quitting my job a little earlier than 28 weeks, which is the longest my Dr said I could work. That would put me at the end of October, but I am thinking now of quitting at the end of September. Will will be on leave and my parents are possibly visiting around the time, plus, I think I just want some time before I get TOO big to get things ready for the babies. I don't have as much energy after I have worked all morning, ya know?

I also think Will and I have decided on a Girl name, FINALLY...[COLOR="hotpink"]Auden Margaret[/COLOR]. Now lets hope I have one! Will has been a bit difficult when it comes to girl names, so when he agreed to Auden, I was so happy! Of course, our first pick boy name is still [COLOR="navy"]William Ashe[/COLOR], although I am still going to try and get it changed to [COLOR="Navy"]Ashe William[/COLOR] before he is born (if we HAVE a HE!)

So...thats about it, I suppose, at least for tonight. I'm sure I will have more to say tomorrow when I post my picture

Welcome home! I just returned from vacation, and I am so happy to be home! I hope you are feeling warm and cozy, too.

I LOVE Auden Margaret. I know where Margaret comes from, but what about Auden? You have such unique names.

Great to hear from you! Glad you had an awesome trip!

I can't believe you haven't gained any weight yet! How lucky you are! As long as you know that you are eating enough then so be it huh? I think it is a good idea for you to quit work early. As much preparation that has to be done for one baby, I can't imagine trying to prepare for two . You will be very big and pregnant by then. REST, REST, REST is all the advice I can give you for those last few weeks. You won't know how much you miss sleep until you have babies!!! By the way, I just love the names! Auden and Ashe are such cute names for twins. Hey, and if you have two girls you could still keep the names...Ashe short for Ashley? Only a few more weeks and you will now what you are having!! It's so exciting!!!!

I look forward to seeing your new picture. I remember waking up one morning and my belly being twice as big. It is amazing how quickly it can grow.

Hi Beth! Good to see you after so long!

Actually I have gained weight now...My guess is about 6-8 lbs now. We will find out tomorrow what the "official" weigh in is when I go to my Drs Appt.

I'm actually feeling a bit nauseaous today. I only get sick every now and then now...but it still sucks when I feel pukey

I'm happy everyone likes the names! I just love Auden. As soon as I saw it, I just kept thinking about it and knew it was a keeper. And I agree, Beth, how much more perfect for boy/girl twins is Ashe and Auden?? Lets just hope its not two girls, otherwise, Im going to have another struggle finding a second name, I'm sure!

Anyway, here are my 14 week pics. I took one in the usual pose to compare with the others, and one that is more straight profile. I will post them both, and then a comparison of my 10 week and 14 week pics:



10 weeks --------------------------> 14 weeks

I'm glad you put the pictures side by side because now I can really see the difference! It is amazing how much you have grown in such a short time. Look at you though.....your legs and booty are still small. You look amazing! I can't wait until you start feeling the babies move. It's the best part!

You are really a glowing mom. And a growing mom.

Your menu looks great. I would buy the lower cal stuff that might be more healthy and supplement with salad and a veggie or fruit.

Looks like things are going great for you, Krysta.

Sue! Hope youre feeling better.

So I'm back from the Doc and YIKES, you guys! In the past five weeks I have gained TEN pounds! Wha??? I'm trying to tell myself that for being in my 15th week, 10 pounds isnt so bad...that's less than a pound a week average, but my gosh! When I stuggle so much to LOSE weight, its HARD to see such a tremendous gain! I'm still freaking out about it a little bit.

Other than that, my Dr's Appt was very minimal. No u/s like I expected, but I did get to hear their whooshing little hearts just beating away! Sigh.

I am scheduled for a Level 2 Ultrasound on the 25th...less than a month from now. We will find out what we are having at that one. And the best part is that Will should be back in time to come to it with me!

Krysta don't stress about the weight gain. I know it is hard to see especially since you have been in weight loss mode for so long. If you were just pregnant with just one, you would be right on target with the weight gain of 30 pounds that doctors recommend. And you have twins in there that require twice as much!! I think you are doing fantastic! The last thing you want to do is not eat enough and have low weight babies. They are already going to be coming out early. You are not eating junk and trying to be healthy. That is really all you can do while you are pregnant.

I can't believe it is almost time to find out what you are having. Make sure you drink a little caffeine before going in for the ultrasound . You don't want the babies to be asleep when trying to see all the good parts! I can't wait!!!

Jaimie, thanks for the compliments!!

Beth, you are right. The twins will come early as it is. I want them to be as healthy as possible. But like just now. I was starving, so I made a cheese sandwhich, some applesauce and a glass of milk. Normally, that would totally fill me up. Not today! I just finished it and I'm STILL hungry! Like, REALLY HUNGRY. Sigh. I just have to tell myself its only for about 5 more months! Then I can worry about getting back into shape!

So I thought I would share the first scrapbook page I have made for my pregnancy journal. I guess I am going to have to go backwards a bit since I started on week 14, but fortunately, I have taken a few pictures along the way that will help me do the earlier pages, even if its after the fact. Anyway, I thought it turned out pretty cute! I got the digi kit from a website called Little Dreamers by Leora Sandford (gotta give her credit!). They are the only ones Ive found that actually have stuff for BEFORE you have the baby!
