So, I'm around 18 to 19weeks preggers.  What are the twins doing this week?  Baby Center says that their sensory development is "exploding" and the brain is designating areas for smell, taste, hearing vision, and touch.  It also says that some research suggests that they may even be able to hear surromommas voice.  This is very exciting! It also says that their arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of the body.  I can't wait to meet the little guys/girls.  Of course, I want them to stay in for the entire pregnancy term; I will be patient and meet them when its time.  Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not an emotional person; however, I think I'm going to just melt when I see my little ones.  I'm in love and I haven't even met them yet lol.

Growing Fast

Yay!!! I've received an updated scan today and the twins are looking good.  I am so happy to hear that all measurements are within normal limit and everything is going well.  My next scan will be a 3D scan; I can't wait to see that.  Below is the scan that I received today.  I hope everyone has a great day!

The Waiting Game

I know it has been a few weeks since my last post.  This is mainly because I have been pretty busy with work and there's no news on the pregnancy front.  Although I'm glad things are boring with the pregnancy, I will say that this new waiting period sucks! Now that I'm in the 2nd trimester, we only get USG scans once a month.  If you think the two week wait for USG scan is long, just wait until you have to wait for a month.  I can't wait to see how much my babies have grown; I think about them everyday. 

I went to the store yesterday for my grandmother.  While I was there, I couldn't resist going to the baby section.  I have been doing pretty good with avoiding the baby section while shopping but yesterday I broke down.  I saw so many cute baby items: clothes, shoes, car seats, strollers, high chairs, diaper bags, etc.  I had a bit of sticker shock when I saw how expensive diapers were...times two with twins.  Those prices will make anyone get into extreme couponing.  The nice thing is that there are many online deals for things like diapers, formula, at the such.  I will certainly be taking advantage of those deals.  My sister sent me a link for some type of coupons that she would get in the mail for formula (they looked similar to checks but were coupons).  I need to solicit my entire family t sign up...just kidding. 

Well, I think I'm going to wrap this post up.  Like I said earlier, there's not much going on.  I can't wait to share the new scan with everyone; I think I should get one this week (or next).  I wonder if I should begin planning my trip back to India.  Any thoughts? How did you deal with the uncertainty of when to book your departing and returning flight?

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Take care!
