The belly is growing

Posted by PicasaIt is so hard to believe that at only 11 weeks I can see real changes in my body and my waistline!! I know that some people think that belly pictures are crazy, but please remember that my family does not live near me. So... mom this one is for you.

According to the bump.com the babies are both the size of limes this week. I guess if that is true there is question why my tummy has made an appearance. I also read in on of my twin books that my uterus is the same size as a woman pregnant with a single baby who is 6 to 8 weeks ahead of me. I go to the Dr. on Monday. I can't wait to hear those little heartbeats again!

It was a sad day today when I learned that Patrick Swayze lost his battle with cancer. He was such an icon for my generation (ok maybe Johnny Castle was an icon). But nonetheless, Patrick you will be missed.

I have so many fond memories of growing up watching Dirty Dancing. In case you were wondering... I'll share. (Let me preface this with all of these memories involve Lori Beth. We watched this movie EVERY time we spent the night together, which was almost every Friday and Saturday night in elementary and jr. high.)

*Lori Beth or myself would jump in front of the TV to hide the PG-13 rating (just in case our parents didn't know this movie was a little racy.)
* Pretending like we knew what everything meant... even when we didn't know until we were grown.
* Learning the dance moves and dancing to each song together in the living room.
* Quoting the entire movie from start to finish with the movie. (Maybe we needed a life)
* Trying to do the lift in the swimming pool every summer. Rarely did we get it.
* Rewinding the kissing scene in Johnny's apt 100 times...
* Rewinding the scene 100 times when Johnny gets out of the bed and you see his butt... just a little bit!
* Last but not least, waiting with bated breath to hear "Nobody puts baby in the corner!"

Um... try morning, noon, and night! I know that this is all part of it, so I am trying hard to hang in there. I tell myself with each "heave" that the end result is going to be worth all of this. "I think I can. I think I can!"

The idea of twins has begun to sink in. To be honest I am really excited now!! (Not that I wasn't before, but you have to appreciate the element of surprise and what shock can do to a person!) I have started day dreaming about what it will be like to have two little ones running around and making our house a home.

You won't see any "belly" shots for quite a while. Right now, I just look like I ate one to many cheeseburgers. I officially can't button my pants anymore. I use the rubber band some, and in my dress pants for work, I just went up a size. EXCITING CHANGES!!!
