9 weeks!

How far along? 9 weeks!

Total weight gain: -6

Maternity clothes? No! But I'm excited for them.. I love maternity clothes!

Sleep: I have to sleep in a really weird position. It has to be on my belly, but I have to bend one of my knees so all the pressure isn't on my stomach, or it makes me nauseous. It's really bizarre and I toss and turn all night long. Then I'm hot/cold/hot/cold too! I pretty much dread going to sleep, even though I'm exhausted!

Best moment this week: Hearing one of the heartbeats - twice! Heard it Friday morning and it was 176, then on Saturday night Mark heard it too!

Movement: No, but definitely looking forward to it :)

Gender: I'm going to guess a boy and a girl right now.

What I miss: Not feeling nauseous all the time with headaches and throwing up. I miss feeling like myself!

Weekly Wisdom: Expect the unexpected, because we definitely never thought we'd have twins!

Looking forward to: My next ultrasound!..whenever that may be. I can't wait to see them again!!

Well, I thought my nausea was getting better, but apparently not :) Hopefully it wont last too much longer. I still feel overwhelmed with twins on the way, and I doubt that will ever change. I'm starting to feel really guilty that Adalyn will soon be fighting for my attention since I'll have two newborns to take care of and nurse. It makes me really sad and I can't help it. I just hope and pray that I can give all three children the attention and love that they need.

There isn't too much else to say :)


  1. I would so love if you had one boy and one girl!

  2. haha the belly down and one knee up is my fave position for now too!

  3. Hi, Shannon! Congrats on the twins on the way!!! What an incredible double blessing from God!

    My sister-in-law gave birth to twins last year, but she doesn't have a blog so that's not very helpful. :) However, I have a friend who had twin boys and then a girl pretty soon afterwards, so she's well acquainted with the three (very) young children situation. Here is her blog, if you're interested in checking it out:

    I know she would be more than happy to answer any questions you have or even just "listen" as you freak out about what lies ahead! ;-)

    Oh, and her daughter's name is Adelyn. :)

    May this pregnancy be a time of great joy for you as you prepare to welcome TWO little people into your home and family!! :)

  4. I left you a comment on the comment you left on mckmamas blog but I forgot to ink it to my blog...I had twins on my first sons second birthday! :) Your story sounds like my life! :) My twins turn three on Friday! If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer any! :)

  5. Congratulations! Twins! How exciting!!

  6. TWO GIRLS!!! It's frozen in time now. :)
