Well, we've made it to the half-way point! Although, twin pregnancies are usually a few weeks shorter than regular ones so we actually already passed half way a few weeks ago. I'm sure the holidays will make the second half go by very quickly.
Eveyone around here keeps telling me I still look small for carrying twins. I think it's probably because they didn't know me before so they have never seen me when I wasn't pregnant. At this point I'm usually just starting to think about wearing maternity clothes. It's amazing how quickly I change-- one day I still could zip up my jacket fine, it wasn't even tight, and the next day it wouldn't even come together.
Derek's very excited because he got to feel one of the babies move the other day. They are quite active in there. One cooperated very well and kicked him as soon as he put his hand on my tummy. The other one wasn't as cooperative and kept missing him.
Our ultrasound is in one week (8 October) so if you haven't gotten your vote in on our poll located in the side bar then you better hurry. The results so far show that not many people have much hope for the girls. Ah well, Brian already informed me that we can't have any girl toys at our house anyway. I asked him if we had a girl what she would play with and he said, "Cars!" Andrew, at least, is more empathetic. He definitly thinks a baby girl would need some girl toys to play with. I guess we'll just have to see what happens.
