Baby Shower Thank You

Tomorrow is our first Baby Shower so I decided I should whip up some Thank You cards today.

We have been working on the nursery over the past couple weeks. The cribs my dad built are amazing! Last weekend I found curtains and we bought car seats. Less than 6 weeks to go now! If you haven't voted in our gender poll, check out my previous post and cast your vote on the right side of my blog.
I have weekly ultrasounds now until they are born, here are a couple pictures from this weeks. They were so wiggly it was hard to get clear pictures, but they needed to wiggle to "pass" the test so I guess they were just being good "students"!

Baby A weighed in at 4lbs 7oz and is head down. Baby A spends most of his/her time kicking Baby B in the face...awesome, right?? I just hope it doesn't continue once they are born! :)

Baby B weighed in at 4lb 12oz and is breech. I was also a breech baby and my mom has told me many times how much it hurt to have my head in her ribs...I am quickly realizing what she meant! Baby B is getting good at blocking the kicks to the face with his/her fists.

My doctor told me I look better than many singleton mom's do at 32 weeks! She also told me that I probably won't get any stretch marks on my stomach at this point!! WOO-HOO!! Then she said that also means my skin will bounce back better since it isn't 'damaged'. I had come to terms with the idea of "Twin Skin" so the possibility of not having a stretch marked flap of skin was certainly exciting news!

Whether I end up with "Twin Skin" or not, we are so excited that April is almost here and that my pregnancy has been so easy. Hope you are having a great Saturday!

aww. Such a lovely card. I love today's post too. How exciting! Look at that cutie having a good old thumb suck. I haven't had twins, but have plenty of stretch marks to show for my little ones. I like to think of them as my badge of honor ;-) All the very best!

The cribs do look amazing! Your dad did a great job, it looks like a lot of love went into them. I also loved looking at the latest baby pics. I think Baby B is giving me the shaka wave or wait is that a block? Im happy to hear that your pregnancy has been going so well!
