On Saturday (our last full day), we rented a car and drove around the whole island - which took a whopping hour and a half! Afterwards, we kinda wish we would have just stayed at our hotel - it really was the best beach and water on the whole island. Oh well, it was fun to watch Jason drive on the wrong side of the road! Well worth the $40 car rental! Oddly enough, Jason ran into his freshman year suite mate from A&M while walking by the pool on Saturday - how weird is that?! Small world! Unfortunately, the vacation had to come to a end. We had a layover in Miami on our way back - which by the way is the worst airport I have ever been to! The layover was already 3 hours (which put us back to DFW around 11:15p), but with an added 45 minute delay, we didn't get home until well after midnight - ugh! Poor Jason had to work today, but Lucy and I got to sleep in :) Then I just spent the day doing laundry, playing with Lucy, and finishing Eclipse (can't wait to see the movie!), until 3:30 when I left to meet Jason for our 19 week dr. appt!
I was super excited because they were going to do a detailed sono (with our regular sono tech - no more mean sono tech). Both babies are doing great! Baby A is measuring at 8 ounces and Baby B is 9 ounces - and both are about 3 days ahead of schedule! I found out that both babies are favoring my left side - which explains why I thought I was only feeling one baby - but really I have been feeling both of them - which was a relief! We still have a boy and a girl - and it looks like it's going to stay that way - so I can officially get down to the business of shopping! Jason was such a proud papa when she showed us our little boy's business - such a man! They were both quite active today, rolling around, headbutting each other, kicking each other - already with the sibling rivalry! All the movement made it difficult to get a really good profile pic of either baby - oh well we'll see them again in two weeks! Their heart rates were at 145 and 153 and my cervix was looking nice and long - let's hope it stays that way! So far, I am 18 weeks 5 days and have gained about 9 lbs. I can't believe we are half way there! I find myself breathless alot these days and back pain has begun to set in - which is just lovely. Dr. G says it's just a glimpse of the back pain that is to come... awesome. I might need to invest in a back support thingy - it scares me to think that it will intensify and get worse the bigger I get - but I guess my smooth pregnancy was bound to hit a snag at some point!
I have started the adventure of registering - what a headache! I don't know if I am doing any of it right - but I guess it's trial by fire! If anyone has any must haves that I should know about - please feel free to pass it on! Or anything that is a total waste of money - I'm all ears :)
Here are some pics from the trip and dr. appt!

It was just so amazing - I had to add another picture of the water!

Hell was actually closed on Saturday believe it or not!
This is Hell - literally - I wanted to get a postcard from Hell - but as I said - Hell was closed :(
It's a boy! Jason was so proud!
And... It's a girl!
Our litte girl - twin a (at least today she was twin a)

You guessed it... our girl baby a again!

Two heads are better than one! They were both breech today.
Twins feet - and boy do they know how to use 'em!
Well... that's all until June 28th!
