29 weeks, 5 days

Considering my last post was revealing the genders of our twinsies, I figured it was time for an update!
All is going so well! Even though I feel like I’m holding my breath everyday and praying, praying, praying that our babies are healthy, we always get perfect news at the ultrasounds. We had another one about two weeks ago and our babies were both 2 lbs. 12 oz and doing great! We are so, so thankful! Next ultrasound is this Thursday – I am so excited to see how much they have grown.
I also passed my gestational diabetes test with flying colors! I opted to do the 3 hour test instead of the 1 hour since I had a higher chance of failing with twins and the nurse said the results couldn’t have looked better. THANK GOODNESS. I was really hoping that I passed because I did NOT want to have to modify my diet over the holidays. :)
Our baby shower was also this month and it was SO SURREAL. I absolutely cannot believe that I have made it this far with these two little miracles and I was overwhelmed by the generosity of our guests. My co-workers also threw me a surprise shower this month and it was so incredible. These little ones are so spoiled already!
As far as names go, I think we are FINALLY set. Mark and I originally wanted to keep their names between the two of us until they are born but we ended up telling my parents and grandparents over the weekend and swore them to secrecy. I’m glad that they know because it was a hard secret to keep from them!
I realize that I have been a terrible blogger but most times, I feel like I really don’t have anything to say. I spend most of my time being thankful for the two miracles that I feel kicking away in my belly and pray that they continue to grow big and strong.  The past 30 weeks have felt like they have flown by and I can’t believe we are getting closer meeting our babies.
I still log on and read your updates all the time and I am thinking of all of you no matter where you are in your journeys.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
