Hola! I have been in a Mexican kick lately :)  Who doesn't love chips and salsa?  Ole preggo here does!  I hope everyone is staying dry today...it is a rainy day here in the Gump.  This morning Raleigh and I had our 26 week check-up and I am happy to say everyone is doing great!  I had to drink the glucola orange soda (which really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be) to get the diabetes test and we had another ultrasound.  I would post the pictures but the girls are getting so big that they can't really get a great shot of them.  Both of the girls are facing head down so the doctor is hoping that they stay that way.  We haven't decided yet if we are going to do a C-section or deliver vaginally but all I know is the less pain the better!  Any advice on delivering twins is much appreciated right now!  I am starting to get to that point where I am realizing that D-day really is coming soon.  Scaredy cat by nature, I am a little frightened of what to expect but I know the end result is going to be worth every ounce of discomfort I might feel.  Still feeling a little scared though........
Both girls are almost at 2 pounds and have strong, steady heartbeats so that is such a relief.  Hearing the heartbeat is Raleigh's favorite part.  It is that comfort of knowing that they really are doing okay, you know?  I have to say, I too have grown in size since our last visit.  I know it is part of being pregnant but I have never seen that number on the scale before!  Our doctor also told me that I am getting into the "rapid growth stage" so that means the pounds are only going to increase from this point on!  Some days I really do feel large and in-charge but so far it hasn't bothered me.  This month has probably been the most enjoyable because I am finally on a routine with medicine so I'm not getting sick.  April is such a beautiful month down south so I have been able to get outside more and enjoy all the flowers, green grass, and sunshine.  I just love being outdoors...it makes me feel so much better and brighter.
I know y'all have seen pictures of me throughout the pregnancy, but I thought I would post some for you to see our progression.  The first few I am so pale...it is funny looking back on those because it was during the winter and I also felt awful so I look so sickly!  Oh well, just part of it I guess.  Anyways, hope you enjoy!
