May was a crazy month!! In addition to Tom and I both turning a year older, we started the month off with a wonderful wedding outside of Philly for the beautiful Michael Lynn and her now husband AJ. We were able to see and catch up with a lot of my previous co-workers from Ironman which was fantastic!
Everyone has asked me how I've been feeling and so far I really have no complaints! My energy has been pretty low and I have headaches that come and go. My body and back have been a little sore since I am constantly growing. Other than that, all is well and I'm enjoying my growing belly, so far...
Continuing with the jam packed month, we headed up to Jersey to be a part of nephew Rooney's Christening. Tom was honored to be chosen as Rooney's Godfather and it was wonderful having the ceremony at the Hewitt family church. The reception was amazing for not only Rooney's celebration, but also for our chance to share our amazing news with extended family and friends.
Typically, in singleton pregnancies, most women have blood testing done to show if there are any genetic disorders. In a multiples scenario, blood testing is not an option because they cannot ensure that they get all the babies blood. As a result, we had a Nuchal Test which measures the fluid in the back of each babies neck and uses that information to determine certain disorders. All our babies were extensively measured and all looked great! Yay!!
But... the big news is that there is a high probability that our little bundles are IDENTICAL! We find out the sexes for sure at our 18-week anatomy scan but as of now the guess is boys!!!
We got to spend a wonderful weekend with our friends Jen & Jerome, relaxing, kayaking and hanging out by the pool for Memorial Weekend in Roanoke, Virginia.
Still feeling good!!
Babymoon!!! Our last big trip was spent in Houston, Texas with Sean & Lex. Once again we relaxed, hung out at the pool, went to the beach, and to our first Houston Astros game. Oh and we ate some amazing food while we were in Texas as well, including the supposed origins of the fajita!
Heard all heartbeats and babies were strong and doing well!
Our travel is done, now time to nest and get the house ready for babies! First order of business was ordering a new couch with pull out bed because our living room is becoming our guest room. Unfortunately, our couch will not be here until the middle of September :-( we will impatiently await it's arrival!!
Next up is the 4 month mark, post to come shortly!!
