16 Weeks 3 Days

So, we all survived our adventure to the LA museums. The kids had a blast, drove us crazy in the car and I didn't need to use my wheelchair! Things were not as big as I was expecting and there were lots of places to stop and rest while the kids looked around. I love that they chose to go somewhere fun rather than have a birthday party. It's so much easier for us and much more memorable.
The pregnancy so far has been going well, in my opinion. My belly is huge and I've almost grown out of the shirt I wear to work. Comparatively, I wore the very same shirt through my entire last pregnancy and I'm only 4 months along with this pregnancy!
I go for my first Watsu appointment tomorrow. It's a type of water massage/relaxation done in a heated pool. It sounds very appealing and may help my back feel better.
We also have another appointment in LA with our OB on Thursday. I'm looking forward on getting a quick peak at the babies to make sure they are doing ok. Every time we see them, they seem to have grown so much in the 2 weeks in between. We're also looking forward to a longer scan scheduled for 18 weeks locally. They told us to expect it to take between 2 and 3 hours in order to get all of the measurements on each baby. I am hoping we can get some great ultrasound pictures to add to the album for the babies. I actually can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. I stop working in about 3 weeks and shortly after that we'll be moving to LA and a few months later, that babies will mostly likely be here.
I feel more and more confident in my ability to be successful with this pregnancy as each day passes and with each pound I gain. I am grateful to those around me that notice my positive attitude and encourage me to keep on that way. I remind myself each day that I can do this and I will succeed!
I am thankful for my faith in God and know he has given these babies the will to fight and live and offered me the strength to nourish them.
