Happy 2007, everyone! It is finally the year that Penny and I will become parents! We are so excited and can't believe that the twins will be here in just four months. Unbelievable!
Yesterday was my 32nd birthday. Happy birthday to me. I talked to lots of people, so thanks to everyone who called. I talked to my brother, Bill, in NY, and he informed me that it had been much too long since I had last posted and that the point of a blog was frequent posting to keep inquiring minds in the know. Well, excuse me, Mr. Pushy Police Man! So, Bill, this one's for you. Now, you better leave me a comment in the comments section. If you can figure it out, that is! LOL!
So, turning 32 means that, according to my OB, I am now considered (get this!) ADVANCED MATERNAL AGE for twins! Can you freakin' believe that? I guess I should have had them when I was, oh, I don't know...maybe 18? The medical world is just too much sometimes!
I had a lovely birthday. Dinner with some friends, presents, ice cream cake, and watching the L Word premiere on Showtime. Penny gave me some cool games and we played them throughout the day. Thanks, honey! You rock!
Pregnancy is going well. Not too much to report. I am definitely looking more and more pregnant and people who know me are noticing and commenting. To the rest of the world, I might still look somewhat "fluffy" (as they say!), but the gut is sticking out more and more like a proper pregnant belly. I am feeling the babies everyday now and that is pretty cool. I had a few pretty strong movements yesterday, so I hope that it is not too much longer until Penny can start feeling them from the outside. She is dying for that to start happening. The things that I feel are not so much jabs like individual kicks or punches, but more like rolling movements. The babies are definitely more active in the afternoons and evenings. Perhaps a precursor to being asleep all day and awake all night. Good times to come.
I guess that is about all the news from here for now. I am in my 20th week now and just so thrilled. We have our next ultrasound on January 19th, rescheduled from the 10th. The ultrasound department wanted to wait until the babies were a bit bigger, so they rescheduled the appointment. Hopefully, we will then have confirmation of the sexes of the babies. One boy and one girl, please! Thanks very much!
