31 Weeks And Q & A

Blogging on a Saturday night? Why not! We are lounging and watching Netflix, while recovering from last night. We went out to celebrate Tom passing his state exam with his academy class last night..until 2am. Crazy, crazy.

I'm 31 weeks today, a short 5 weeks from my goal. Unbelievable! I had an ultrasound this week and my Mom and niece tagged along. They loved seeing the boys. Much to my shock, the both flipped head down! Because of that, I have a lot more pressure/pain and contractions. My cervix is still about 3, so were okay there. Baby A measured 3 lb. 9 oz. and baby B is 3 lb. 6 oz. Both looked just perfect and are the size of what an average singleton would be.

My maternity pictures turned out really pretty. The boys did awesome and Im so glad she got some great ones of just Tom and I.






















I feel like Ive done random pregnancy updates but haven't really kept up with life here. So, its time for a little Q & A session. What do you want to know? You can ask anything..other than how we plan to stay sane the next year with all these children..;) Leave your questions here and Ill post the answers on Wednesday!

So glad you asked! I was curious if you had any nausea or vomiting during this or any of your pregnancies, and if so when did it start?

I have a 3.5 year old daughter and 16 month identical twin girls. I was never one who wanted twins growing up but can't imagine my life without them. It's such a huge difference from a singleton but oh so worth it. A lot of people expect twin parents to name their twins similarly, whether it be rhyming or starting with the same letter. Do you pan to do this? We didn't and I'm sure glad because I already have a hard enough time figuring out who is who.....if their names rhymed or were somewhat similar, I would be a mess!! Enjoy and god luck!

Came across your blog and wanted to say hi! Your boys are adorable and congrats on soon adding twin boys to the mix!! I have 19 month old twin girls and it's been a wild ride that's for sure :) It's so fun seeing the "twin" bond develop between them. Can't wait to get to know you a little more through your blog :)

QUestion 1: How do you stand living so far away from Atlanta? Dont you think you would be happier a little further south? (Closer to Disney, the beach and Hopkins children). Miss you tons.

Marianne said...

Congrats on passing exam!

Can you believe there are 2 babies in there? Are you still shocked/surprised?
Have you got your new car/mini bus yet?
Are you close to your family for help when your babas arrive?

You are going to be crazy busy but really hope you can blog sometimes, even if just with a quick update and some pics xxx

What is your ideal recovery postpartum? Then, what is your realistic recovery postpartum? Does your family come and help you?
Can't wait to see all of the Q & A!

brandy said...

Oh, and do you plan on breastfeeding the twins, too?

Amy Faulkner said...

You have to be the pretties pregnant person ever! For the Q&A, can you update us on how Trevor is doing with his allergies? And any twin advice you've received that you think will be especially useful?

Bloggerina said...

Your pictures are absolutely amazing! I adore the black and white of just the two of you.

Jordyn said...

Loved the pictures and the update! So glad the all the boys are doing well! Any hints on names? And you need to update the blog header to include all four of your beautiful boys!!

Mark said...

What are future plans? Do you feel your family is complete? Do you want to use all your remaining embryos?? Good luck and glad you're doing so well!!

Rachel said...

I'm still waiting for the new house update! Can that count as a question? lol

Kelly said...

Awww Erin...you look great! Just glowing! Love your teal dress!! I love the piggy back picture...all of them turned out great. Great scenery too!

Melli said...

So good to hear that you are doing so great with this pregnancy. My question for you:

Is your car big enough to fit all those car seats?
I have a friend that has four girls (also with two singletons and then twins) and they always drive in two seperate cars.

MINDYE said...

Don't have a question, just wanted to say you look awesome. Love the pictures and so excited to be able to keep up with you. My daughter is about a week behind you, with twin boys and I am about to bust with excitement!

Andy & Katie said...

I second Evan...just saying! ;) Miss you!

April said...

Beautiful pictures!!! I love all of them but especially the one with you two kissing holding your kids and the one with you in the water! I have always loved natural settings. And, I can't get over how great you look:) Praying for many more weeks of a good pregnancy!
