Sugar & Spice Times Two

Yesterday was our 20 week ultrasound and we found out we are having 2 girls!!!!
My feeling was that it was either a boy and a girl or two girls, but to hear two girls was still a big surprise! Hubby comes from a family of four boys, so he was quite surprised and is a little nervous for the road ahead. He works with all women besides his business partner, so he said “girls at work, girls at home”.
Most of all, the detailed ultrasound reassured us that the girls are doing great. Anatomy looked great and they are measuring normal for their gestational age and almost the same in size. Both were quite active during the scan and it was amazing to see their fingers, toes, noses, lips, etc.
I’m feeling well, some cramping with the expansion of my stomach and just really trying to take it easy. The leader of our multiples class keeps reminding us all that “a twin pregnancy is not the same thing as a singleton pregnancy” and that we all must listen to our bodies and not overdo it. It’s pouring down rain here in the Northwest, so it makes it a little easier to have a cozy day on the sofa.
After finding out we are having two girls yesterday, I headed to the mall and purchased these two small pink Little Giraffe blankies. They are so soft, Mama might one for herself!


Here are the little ones:


20 weeks (21 weeks tomorrow):


My belly is growing very rapidly now!

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!

  1. Two girls – hooray! I love having two of the same – there’s just something cute and special about it. I like being the only woman in our house, and your hubby will like being the only man in yours. Like your hubs (all same sex siblings) I’m one of three girls, no brothers… So a family of all the same is just what I envision.

    Two little girls!!! Ahh! I know they’ll be adorable!

    You look terrific! Cutest pregnant belly ever. Post a full pic of yourself, please! 🙂

    So excited for you!

  2. YAY!! Sisters. 🙂 That makes me so happy. So glad to hear that both are growing well and the anatomy scan went perfectly. That’s the best you can ask for!

  3. Oh boy (er, girls)! Wow, your husband is going to be wrapped around 20 little fingers! What fabulous news, especially that you’re all doing so well. Your bump looks fabulous!

  4. Congrats on the two girls. I recently found your blog through a mutual blogger. We have twin girls also who are almost 9 months old. They are just so much fun. You are going to love being a momma to two little girls. 🙂 You also look great!!

  5. Congratulations! So exciting!! I meant to comment on an older post of yours about taking it easy. I remember that when people told me to take it easy I didn’t know what it meant, specifically. But because I didn’t “take it easy” enough I landed on bed rest at 23 weeks – straight through until the end! So as you said, with twin pregnancies not being the same as with a singleton, rest your body at every moment you can, keep your feet elevated and drinks lots of water 🙂

    • I read some of your posts regarding the bed rest and it definitely made me think that I should be taking it much easier than I am. I have cut back on physical activity, but being such an active person, it’s hard to put my feet up. Thank you for your insights, you’ve been here. 🙂 xoxo

  6. Ah, how fantastic!!! I keep anticipating your updates as if they were my own. 😉 So happy to know all’s well Nikki! Congratulations on the great news and finding those adorable Little Giraffe’s.. 😉 I love their brand.
