Welcome Home!

Thanks to Whitney and Jenn for our welcome home banners! We were very excited to be home after 4 days at the hospital.
Their carseats were pretty huge. No matter what we did they looked so uncomfortable in them.

Here is Anistons first outfit. Scott had to go buy new outfits in premiee for the twins because the new born ones we planned on taking them home in were huge.

Cute little Korver. Those mittens lasted about 2 seconds.

32 Weeks!

32 Weeks pregnant. Things are going so great. Contractions have stayed away which is great. I have still been able to work thanks to my awesome stool I got so I can sit down and do hair. This picture was actually taken at 32 weeks but tomorrow will be 33 weeks. I cant believe it. Our goal is to make it another 4 weeks from tomorrow which will get us to 37 weeks(full term for twins). Hopefully this week we can get started on the babies room. We have been finishing the basement so we can move everything out of their room down there. Poor Scott has been slaving away to get it done.(I think I ruined his back) Thanks to him, my family, Scotts family and our friends we are finally just about there. So as soon as we get things done in the nursery I will post some pictures.

Our First trip to the Hospital!

So I have to make sure I post this story, mostly for my own sake so I dont forget any details. But I am sure most of you will get a good kick out of it too. So Monday afternoon at 4:30 I had a regular doctors appointment(we are 28 weeeks at this point). Everything looked great, my doctor was shocked that being pregnant with twins that I hadnt had any contractions yet. We were supposed to start going to our appointments every week now but the doctor decided since we were doing so well and no contractions so far that we would go two weeks again. So we went on our way ran into walmart and stopped to get dinner on our way home and that was it. Well around 7 I started not feeling great. I was really sick to my stomach but I thought maybe it was just my dinner(not much has been settling well due to reflux, since there is not much room left in my stomach) I started to get pain across my stomach but it was up really high and the babies were all over the place so I thought maybe just the combination between dinner and all the activity was making me sick. Well then I was peeing non stop in and out of the bathroom and to top things off I threw up too. I took a bath and called the doctor, he made it sound like no worries everything was fine so I took some tums and took another bath and crawled into bed feeling quite a bit better. So the other thing you need to know is that Scott had been sick in bed ALL day, I had been giving him sudafed every 4 hours and trying to get him better. So before I got into bed I brought him nyquill so that it would knock him out for the night. Well big mistake. Scott had been asking since 7 if i needed to go to the hospital and I kept telling him no I was fine. I really thought everything was fine. Well we went to bed about 10 I fell asleep for about 20 minutes and woke up in a little pain and just thought I had to pee again. So sitting in the bathroom for about 5 minutes Scott asks if I am ok, I finally tell him I think we should go to the hospital. Remember he has just taken the medicine to knock him out. So we get dressed and off the the hospital we go. Poor Scott I was so worried. He was fine driving but by the time we got there it took everything out of him to keep his eyes open. So it turns out that I was totally having contractions and pretty good ones. They were far apart but they were deffinitly there. They ran a bunch of tests on me and all came back great! Aparently there is a test that they can do that if it comes back negative it is 99% that you wont deliver in the next two weeks and YAY mine was negative. I was slightly dehydrated which could have caused the contractions to start and also something I found interesting. The doctor told me that the low pressure from the storm that came in that night can cause contractions too. My contractions died down and were farther apart. So needless to say we left the hospital at about 3 in the morning poor Scott trying to sleep of his medicine in between the doctor and nurse coming in and out. So much for seeing the doctor in two weeks, we were back in there tuesday afternoon. I told him it was his fault since he said we were doing so well! I have had to take it super easy the last two days and I am not aloud to do anything while I am home or while I am out of the house really. No more running around and normal life. It is so hard for me to just sit here. Luckly I can go to work and sit on my chair to do hair to get out of the house. Good thing I have a great husband who takes such great care of me. I am so gratefull that the babies are doing ok and that all is well. I am feeling much better. I have a contraction here and there but nothing I cant handle. I just have to make myself take it really easy and do nothing. Hopefully they wont be here for at least another 7 weeks (that takes us to 35 weeks) that would be great. I am dying to see them but I want them to be healthy and strong when they get here. So stay in there little ones and keep growing. And next time when Scott asks if I need to go to the hospital I will say yes the first time instead of waiting until the middle of the night.

The Belly!

Finally a picture for everyone who keeps asking! This was taken at 20 weeks! Now look at someone else carrying 1 baby, this is what they probably look like on their due date. BUT I LOVE IT! I love my big tummy and I love being pregnant! I figure my babies are healthy if I am getting bigger. The doctor said on Monday everything looks great including heartbeats, blood work and my measurements, so onward we go. I think I get bigger everyday. Which I guess is probably normal at this point, but it will all be worth it in the end. I really cant complain, I have had such an easy pregnancy so far!(knock on wood) I have had a few rough mornings here and there and not a lot sounds good, except the crapy foods I probably shouldn't be eating of course. I was really tired my 1st trimester but it has gotten better and better as time has gone on. The hardest part so far is sleeping at night. I am SO uncomfortable! Poor Scott has to sleep with me and my 4 pillows around me every night. I have to have one for my head, one behind my back, one under my tummy and one between my legs. Only being able to sleep on my sides is so hard. I will take the rough nights over being sick everyday for sure. But once again it will all be worth it! I will post more pictures in the weeks to come!


I am finally adding these pictures that were taken almost 3 weeks ago! Baby A is our sweet little girl and baby B is our sweet boy! I am so excited to finally know the sexes it is so fun. I am trying to keep my shopping to a minimum and not buy to much! Which I think everyone can vouch for me that I have done exceptionally well! About the time we found out their sexes I was starting to feel them move, which is amazing. I guess I shouldnt be shocked I was feeling them move, the doctor said our little girl did 3 somersaults while he was doing the exam. (Poor guy couldn't keep track of her). Now I am almost 21 weeks and their kicks are getting stronger and I love it! There is nothing more amazing then knowing that these little lives are growing inside me and that I get to be their mommy! Scott also felt them kick really hard the other day and I was so excited that he got to experience it. I think it is hard as the guy not to go through the phases physically and try to understand! I am so excited for him to be a dad he is going to be the best. He can not wait for them to be here! Now on to the big projects like finishing (or even starting for that matter)their bedroom!

Father's thoughts.

Once in a great while I like to get on and leave a post or two with a random thought or a funny story, but today I thought I would give my thoughts as a future father and what has been going through my mind over the past 18 weeks.
Before I get into that though I want to let everyone know that I have the most amazing wife anyone could ever ask for. She make me a better person everyday and I have learned more from her than she will ever know. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life waking up next to her knowing that we will be together for all of time and eternity. I could say I love you to her every second of the day and it would still not be enough times to really show her how much I love her. In a lame movie quote sort of way “she completes me.”
She is going to make the best mother any child could ask for. I know this for many reasons, but the main reason is she is just like her mom. Unfortunately I was never able to meet Nicole’s mother in person, but I have felt her love and her presence everyday of our marriage and I know that Nicole is going to be just like her. And even though I have never been able to thank Nicole’s mother in person for her amazing daughter I say it in my prayers everyday knowing that she hears it. Never in my life could I have dreamed that I would end up with someone so special and so amazing. She really is my everything.
And now to the main event.
I should start my future father thoughts off with the truth. I am literally scared to death about being a father. What do I do when they start crying? How do I change a diaper? Will they love me? How will I know what they need? And will I be a good dad? These are just a few of the thousands of questions that go through my head on a daily basis. Do I know the answers to these questions? NO! Will I know the answers by the time they get here? I might know the diaper questions, but the others probably not. I don’t think that anyone can really tell you how to be a good father, but I am lucky to have two amazing examples in my life of how to be a good father from both my own father and my father-in-law. Both of whom have taught me so many things in my life about so much.
I know this is starting to sound kind of like a soap opera so I will add one last thought and then I will be done.
Even though I am scared out of my mind to be a dad, I have never been more excited in my entire life. I cannot wait for the first time I get to hold them. I cannot wait for the first time to feed them. And even though a lot of people might disagree I am even excited for the first time I get to change their diapers, providing I know how and I don’t mess something up. Pretty much I am excited for everything that comes from being a parent. I honestly cannot wait to be a father.

Less than a Week!

So this is the appointment I have been counting down to. The day we find out the sexes of the babies! In just 6 days we will know, March 1st! I cant wait! The reason this picture is of a boy and a girl is because that's what I think it is! I don't know if I think that just because it would be ideal, but all my dreams that I have had have been about a boy and a girl. I am not the only one though, the overall consensus so far from everyone has been boy and girl only a few people (my sister steph and sara and aubrey) keep saying two girls. But I know they only say that just because they think they are funny! Not that I wouldnt love two girls I just am thinking to the later future of fighting over clothes, friends, boyfriends and most of all the DRAMA! Just as a side note I am pretty sure that Scott thinks it is a boy and girl also. Monday will be the deciding moment!

Times TWO!

Scott and I are so excited for the twins to get here! It is all starting to feel more real! My stomach is growing bigger and bigger by the day and we bought two cribs yesterday, which I was so excited to do! I cant wait to find out the sexs of the babies so that we can start putting their room together! It feels like I have to wait forever until that appointment! But in all reality it will be here soon.

Friday, January 1, 2010


Well we have some exciting news that we shared with all our family and friends yesterday! As you can see we are expecting twins! I know crazy, but we are so excited. Reality has set in for Scott but I still feel like I am in somewhat of a dream! Telling everyone was so exciting. We went bowling with all of Scott's family yesterday including his immediate family, grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins! We started bowling and then told his mom and dad we had a present that we didn't get finished for Christmas so we handed them a gift bag to open with these onesies inside. Everyone was so excited. Scott's mom was running all over the bowling alley with them in her hands showing everyone! Everyone's reaction was great! Then we went straight to lunch with all of my family and did the same thing with a set of onesies with my parents(just a late Christmas gift). No one was expecting it! My dad got kinda teary eyed(loved it) my step mom was jumping up and down screaming and my sisters were all screaming and crying! I think my brother was a little shocked it was 2 but very excited! It was so fun! Then we had all our friends over for a New Years eve party and told them to open this present we got today(the onesies)I think everyone was a little shocked but super excited! We are so lucky to have so much support from our family and friends. I know we will have a lot of help when the babies get here! I cant wait. We are almost 10 weeks now and due august 1st(which is funny because that is my nieces birthday)! Now the long wait comes until we find out what the sex of the babies are! But we could not be more excited!
