20 Weeks

I'm 20 Weeks!! 

I'm so happy to have made it this far in the pregnancy! I am enjoying it all and really starting to show!

I thank the Lord for these two little miracles growing inside of my tummy! :)

Here I am at 20 weeks with Robbie in December of 2010. 
The same day we found out we were expecting a boy!

Here I am today at 20 weeks in November 2013.
 Not feeling or looking so great because I have now been sick for two weeks with two separate colds.
Thrilled to be expecting TWO TWIN BOYS!!!!
God is good!

A certain auntie
surprised us with more adorable baby clothes for the twins! 

Yesterday, I had a nice chat with my husband's Grandma Branch. She was telling me a story about her husband's father, ( My husband's great grandpa, Pa). When Grandma Branch was having her babies, each time she was pregnant, Pa ( her father in-law, Rich's Great Grandpa) would tell her he just knew she would have twins. Grandma Branch said Pa wanted twins so badly! I told her that I think Pa must have had a little talk with God up in heaven and made sure he finally got his twins! :)

Above is a picture of Grandma and Grandpa Branch with Great Aunt Chris and Great Uncle Carl.

Size of Babies: The Christensen twin boys are now each the size of a banana! 

If we could take a peak inside, this is how things are looking!

Babies Development This Week: The babies are moving and tumbling around a lot more these days and starting to swallow.
Maternity Clothes: ANYTHING STRETCHY that goes over the belly!! :) 

Gender: TWO BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Movement: Lots and lots of little kicks! 

Sleep: Because I have had a cold, sleeping and breathing at night has not been fun! 

What I miss: I have a major craving for a Polish Sausage sandwich!!! :) 

Cravings:  This week I'm craving Ice Tea. 

Symptoms: I feel a fullness in my tummy in the evenings. Lots of heaviness in the uterus and lower back pain at the end of the day.

Best Moment this week: Happy and feeling so blessed to have two healthy baby boys! 

Before I go for the day, I wanted to share this cute photo from last night... 
Robbie had a long day yesterday shopping with GiGi, with no nap. After his bath around 6:00 p.m he asked for scrambled eggs. My Mom made him some. We found Robbie in the chair like this at 6:15 p.m.  Sound asleep, wet hair and all!! :)
