18 weeks!

I can hardly believe that I'm already 18 weeks pregnant. When I announced that I was pregnant, the little twin icon (on the ticker above) was between the "5" and "10" elephants b/c I was 9 weeks pregnant. Now, here I am 9 weeks later! The beginning of the pregnancy went by slowly, which I attribute, in part, to waiting for our 1st baby appointment at 8.5 weeks. Now that I go every 3 weeks, it is flying by and the belly is definitely growing! People actually look at me and know I'm pregnant, which is nice... I think I was fortunate and my "looks only like a gut" stage was brief Ha Ha... It's pretty undeniable now. My family and definitely Josh are loving the belly. I like it, too, because it makes it all feel more real. :) We have our next doctor appointment this Wednesday 12/16. I cannot wait to see how much the boys have grown! It would've been our gender appointment, had we not been so fortunate to find out at 15.5 weeks. From what I understand, this will still be a long ultrasound because they will be doing a lot of measuring. It'll be nice to be able to look at the boys for a long time :) Here is a picture for comparison...
The top picture was taken at 14 weeks 6 days... and below was taken at 17 weeks 6 days.
Wow, I just realized that is only 3 weeks lol... The belly is really growing! *I think that we are going to start taking down the pics in the hallway so we'll stop getting those reflection lines in the picture... they are driving me nuts. I just forget every time. lol...I should probably make myself a note... and hang it actually ON the pictures. Ha Ha*
