A journey... 16-20 weeks (movement and anatomy scan)

02 August 2014

I'm going to copy and paste a few entries from the past several weeks of my pregnancy. If you'd like to read more about our journey towards expanding our family, you can do so here.

Last week, we moved Kyler into his new room. We're going to use his old room for the twins because it is bigger and can comfortably fit two cribs, a changing table, a book shelf and a rocking chair in it. Kyler was so excited when we moved his bed into his new room!

Other than that, we haven't done much of anything to prepare for the twins. I'll probably start buying things and decorating the nursery once I'm done teaching pre-K (which is in a few weeks!). I've been having fun filling my Pinterest boards with cute nursery decor ideas!

(I wish everything I pin could magically appear in real life!)

I'm a little behind on the updates! I'm currently 19 weeks and 3 days pregnant! We had our anatomy scan last week, and everything went perfectly! I was so amazed at how much technology has advanced since my last anatomy scan with Kyler 4 years ago. I feel like this anatomy scan had so many more details. It was an incredible feeling to hear/see that everything is developing normally, and such a huge stress relief! 

Baby A (our boy) measured 18w5 days (I was only 18w1day at the time) and Baby B (our girl) measured 19 weeks. For height baby brother was in the 91st percentile and baby sister was in the 100th percentile.  She said those percentiles should come down in the weeks to come, because twins are generally smaller than singletons- so we'll see!

Also, I learned something new! If I have a VBAC, baby A (our boy) will be born first, but if I have another c-section baby B (our girl) will be born first. There are several factors that will determine whether I will have a VBAC or repeat Csection- but I'll get into that another day.

I realized I hadn't taken a bump picture in a while, so I had Kyler take one for me (that's why it's blurry)
just over 19 weeks with twins
I love feeling their little kicks! Baby girl is on the top right side of my belly, and Baby boy is on the bottom left side of my belly- so I can still distinct which baby is moving/kicking. Jared can feel them kick from the outside now too- so fun!


  1. Hi Char!
    What a beautiful baby bump! I just found out yesterday that I'm pregnant too <3 hope you're doing alright!
