18 Weeks

Sleep
Naps are successful, but sleeping is hard. I'm starting to get a little bigger, which means I am supposed to be sleeping on my side. I am not a fan of that! It makes for uncomfortable sleep.

My Size
By the time a woman with twins is 18 weeks pregnant, her uterus is twice the size as that of a woman pregnant with one fetus. A woman at Kohls this week asked me when I was due. When I told her July, she was aghast. When I told her there were two babies in there, she was relieved. I would sooo love to pretend I'm not pregnant and say, "Huh? Due? I'm not pregnant!" But I am too nice. I think even if I wasn't pregnant and someone asked me, I'd lie and make up a date. =)

The Babies' Size/Growth
Our babies' lungs have already begun exhaling amniotic fluid. Please, please, please let there be enough amniotic fluid in there! Please let their kidneys work!

Excitement
We received our final genetic screening results (we had already done the blood test and ultrasound and received a negative. But then at 14 weeks, we had another blood test) and the babies both received NEGATIVES. Happy news! Additionally we have our big ultrasound today!!!! I have been praying so much that they are healthy! I am a nervous nelly!!

Random Twin Fact
Some famous twins: Alanis Morrisette, Ashton Kutcher, Elvis Presley, and Justin Timberlake.
