The girls

The initial shock of knowing we are having twins is fading. I told Wade last night that I feel like I should chronicle this journey of being pregnant with twins through my blog, but the fact is that nothing is really different with me.
I am sorry for those of you that have horrible pregnancies but this has been so easy (knock on wood). Of all the things I have been looking up online apparently one of the symptoms of twins is increased morning sickness and fatigue in the first trimester. I hardly had any of that. In fact it was only like two times. I had a slow start to gaining weight. I am almost at 20 weeks and I have gained a total of 10 lbs. which is supposedly standard for one baby. I say all of this only to let you know how shocked we were when we found out it was two. You think we would have had some kind of indication. I took a little quiz online and answered questions about the likelihood of us having twins from my symptoms and such and it came back like 5% and said your chances are slim to none. Hmmm.
Now I know that I have the rest of my pregnancy left and I know it will be hard carrying two. I have noticed my legs cramp up more and my ribs hurt occasionally. So I am sure this pregnancy won't be all awesome. But the fact that I get to have two precious girls at the end makes me willing to endure anything for them. I just want them to stay put as long as possible so they are healthy.

We have a set of triplets at my school who are absolutely adorable. I know it's kind of cliche and a little ridiculous, but the whole matching thing while they're young is cute. For Halloween, they wore Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3 shirts. Very cute. I'll be excited to meet the Joye girls. :)
