popping out

My belly has really popped out over the past few days, and now we know why. We had a bit of a scare this afternoon (everything is fine), so we had to go in to see the doctor before the weekend. After making sure the twins were great, we had a few minutes to chat. He asked if I had felt the babies, and I told him that I had some twinges high under my ribs on the right side, but that that was too high to be the babies. He then proceeding to show us with the ultrasound that my uterus now extends from below my belly button all the way up to the bottom of my chest! Crazy!!! The twinges were most likely baby girl, whose head is currently on the right side of the very top of my belly. He said that at this point I should measure the same as a single pregnancy at 24-26 weeks! No wonder I'm huge!

On a completely different note, we did some registering this week. I thought I was unprepared when we registered for our wedding, but I had no idea...there is so much baby stuff! How do we know which pacifiers the Shafer babies will prefer? Despite being totally overwhelmed, we had a great time dreaming about and planning for our little ones' arrival.

Andrew is always in charge of the "gun," and he takes his duties very seriously.


  1. Hilarious photo! To answer your question, you don't know what babies will prefer. Suzy loved the bouncy seat that Nathan hated. I have used completely different brands of diapers for my two babies. Pick something, buy it, and then buy something different if it doesn't work for your babies. Here's to hoping your babies like pacifiers because Painter kids do not :)

  2. Lacy just clued me in to the blog. I'm so glad things are going so good! Please please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you guys out around the new house! I'm always around so just give me a holler :)
