And Now There's This

Well the stupid foot wasn't getting any better. Well, it was getting better in my heal but my ankle started to really kill me. So the podiatrist seemed to think that although my plantar faciitus was getting better now I have a stress fracture in my ankle. Perfect! She still didn't want to do an x-ray because of the babies but she suspects this is the cause for my pain. So she wanted to immobilize it for a couple of weeks. Fantastic. I will say it's been two days and it seems a little better, so here's hoping this will fix my foot woes before I get anymore pregnanter!
I'm 25 weeks 6 days and starting to feel the strain. Here's a quite unflattering belly shot Evan took of me. I don't have any pics of me this pregnancy so far so I suppose one here won't kill me.
 And on a more positive note, I passed my glucose test! Yay! I was convinced I would fail just due to the fact it was twins and it's more likely with multiples. I'm super happy about that, I can't imagine worrying about a diet and taking my blood sugar added onto everything else I'm dealing with right now.
That's about it for now, other than it's freaking freezing outside. We have about 5 inches of snow and the forecast is calling for wind chills at or below -20. Insanity.

25 Weeks

Yesterday I had my 25 week ultrasound. Babies looked great and the doctor gave me an A+ for the ultrasound. Always great to hear! Baby A (boy) is about 1 pound 11 ounces and Baby B (girl) is about 1 pound 9 ounces. Baby A is head down and Baby B is breech but she still has several weeks to flip around.
Cervix is still holding strong at 4.3cm, doctor said short was 2.5cm and average was 3-3.5cm. Hoping hoping and wishing for no bed rest! But of course I'm prepared to do whatever it takes to keep these babies cookin' for another 11-13 weeks!
Still no names..and I'm feeling the pressure since that's usually the first thing anyone asks me. We're working on it though...just like the other 4 million things I want to do before they get here. Just don't ask about potty training Erin!
Still no results back from the Glucose test last week. I'm not anxious to hear the results so maybe I'll give them a while longer before I call to check on them.
That's about if for now. Here are some pics from yesterdays ultrasound.

Always a little creepy if you ask me ;)

Basketball Cuteness

I was pretty excited to see Evan play basketball this year. He loves it! It doesn't hurt that his Daddy is one of the coaches though. The games are pretty hysterical and cute, lots of running and they don't keep score or anything. 
He looks so little!!! 

So much cuteness!
