Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine

Yep... we were just featured in Pregnancy in Newborn Magazine's July Issue!
There is our rose pillow! This was supposed to be featured in their May issue but got pushed to the July Issue, which is fine because we have been able to prepare for it a little bit.
Funny story behind this is that we weren't sure that we would be in this issue even though the editors told us we would be... so when I went in for my appointment a few weeks ago there it was in the July Issue on the table in my Doctor's Office. So of course Jacob asked them if we could keep it...so that was how we actually got a copy.
And I am SOOOO glad this photo wasn't in a Magazine. This is my shot at 26 weeks, and this is officially bigger than I have EVER BEEN and I still have another 12 weeks to go. (I will be induced at 38 weeks, because that is full-term for twins and my Doctor won't let me go over that at all...thank goodness.)
Both girls are in the 40th Percentile range... which is way higher than my kids have ever been.
Weight gain is right on track... I still will be shocked if I gain 50 lbs... because I literally can only take a few bites before being super full. I have heart burn like crazy... so I'm sure according to the old wives tales that these girls will have a ton of hair just like their big sister.
And check out my oh-s0-swollen-feet! It's been hot... in the 90's and of course no A/C (at least until we get in our new place...I can't wait). And the swelling doesn't help with all the hand stitching I have to do everyday. Oh well there are worse things!

Congrats once again. That is so awesome!

Oh the swollen feet. That was the worst part for me. Apparently there are some compression leggings things you can get that are suppose to help substantially, though I never tried them so I can't say for sure.

The heartburn is AWFUL! I took zantac (one in the morning one at night) for the last few months and it made a HUGE difference. Even with that there were nights I had to fall asleep propped up in a sitting position. Hang in there!

You look darling!

Featured in another magazine?? Way to go girl!! That is so great!! You are so talented.

And you look so cute, by the way. You're still smaller than i was with just one baby, if thats any consolation!! ;)

My sister in law just had her twins a few weeks ago and they ended up being 5'8" and 5'13" i think, she's the same petite size as you AND she had them natural!!

Sorry to hear about the swelling and heartburn though, i'm sure that hasnt been fun! :(
