So I wanted to update everyone on how things are going and also test something out on my blog. For some reason the dates are messed up and not showing the right date for the post I am adding. It seems to think it's still August 19th. Weird, but hopefully it will be fixed on its own, otherwise I might be asking Jake to do some checking around for me. :) I am not blog savvy, unfortunately. I just know how to write and add new posts and that's all.
We are loving all the prayers and excitement of being pregnant with twins! It is a roller coaster, to be sure, but we are enjoying it every moment of every day! We pray for the babies together at night and especially for Baby A to grow alongside Baby B.
Really, words cannot describe how much fun this is! I am just so grateful for this incredible gift from the Lord. Truly. :) Here's a fun tidbit, because we have an A and a B to refer to, Jacob has decided to give them funny names. :) So... drum roll please.
Baby A is now Astrid.
Baby B is now Bob. :) Fondly named after Jacob's grandpa, Bob Gaiser.
There really are no huge updates except for my next appointment with my OB at 11:30 on the 16th of September. We'll get to see the babes again and do more measuring, checking out Baby Astrid and hearing the heartbeats hopefully.
Also, I've heard that this is common to twin pregnancies but it still makes me nervous. I am experiencing some bleeding which I hear from my brother in law Michael, who is also an OB although not mine, that bleeding is normal and unless I have cramping associated with it, it's likely nothing. So you can be praying that the bleeding truly is nothing and just my uterus doing extra work for the extra life inside. I totally appreciate all the prayers and any mommies of twins, please feel free to let me know any advice you have for me, books to read, etc. I would love it!!
Thanks to everyone and we'll keep you updated as we know more!
