I had a dream...

Well my dreams of not gaining any weight when I am pregnant are over. I had always hoped that the weight from my thunder thighs and big butt would simply find its way to the babies in my belly. No such luck! I am up 13 pounds at almost 21 weeks. I guarantee you if I could have been eating the whole time I would be up 25 pounds easy. I guess nausea has its good points too! Now I will refocus my dreams to losing the weight. I am planning that the babies will come out and within a week I will be back to my high school weight. Yes, I realize that requires me probably losing twice as much as I gained in pregnancy, but please let me have my dreams. Perhaps my head will even shrink a bit!


Yes, I typically wear a bikini and roll around in the sand. I will want to keep some booty.

Are the babies moving?

I think I am feeling the babies move more. Still no definite kicks, but I am feeling more.

Wait maybe that was just gas.

I always thought I would not take a lot of drugs when I was pregnant. I am of course speaking of the legal kind. I started out good, but in the last week I have taken vitamin B-6, pepcid, tylenol pm, unisom, tylenol cold. Perhaps the babies are not kicking because they are so drugged up. I am headed to the doc today to get yet another prescription for my acid issues. My poor esophagus.... Between all of the puking and now the acid, it has to be a wreck. I just do not know how bulimics do it. Neal must be complaining to all of the guys about what a whiny pregnant woman I am. I am still thrilled to finally be pregnant! Time is really starting to move fast.

Naming our children

Why is it so hard? Well it is not for Neal if he could get his way. I put my foot down this time. I guess we have another 4 months to figure it out!

Babies are hungry today

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I lost my healthy dinner last night while I was at the OSU basketball game. The babies just don't like healthy food. According to Jim, when I was in the bathroom heaving the team did good. I will have to remember that at the next game I go to.

Still have not felt a real kick. I guess I feel some flutters on a rare occasion, but nothing too convincing. Doc said it is ok. Apparently the placentas are in the front cushioning anything I would feel.

The Boys....

The big question. People have asked what are we doing with the boys after the babies are here. Others that know our dogs have asked if we are getting rid of them. And the final question we get is how will the boys be with the babies. Well, I do not have answers to any of these questions. I am pretty sure Tippy will be extremely jealous and will never again get enough attention to make him happy. Luke will continue to sleep 90% of the day. Both boys will have a whole new world of things to eat that are disgusting. I can guarantee they will love to eat diapers. I experimented by putting a diaper on the bed for the dogs to sniff. Well, it seems as though an empty diaper does nothing for them. At this time, I choose not to experiment with a loaded diaper. On the bright side, I rarely have to vacuum or clean the floors. The dogs pretty much do that for me! That will only be more useful with two babies in the house. This is how I invision the boys and the babies in my dreams:

Luke of course is giving the baby kisses and Tippy is enjoying the hand on him, petting him (it does not take much). Of course my dogs are a lot bigger, less gentle and Tippy rarely sits still, but remember this is my dream!

I guess we will just have to wait and see. I can guarantee it will be chaotic. How could it not be, we are going to be bringing home 2 newborns into a house full of inexperienced adults! Basically our household count will be doubling over night. I cannot wait!
