20-23 Weeks Update

Well, I’m officially 24 weeks 2 days, but I wanted to share that the 20-23 Weeks Page is all updated for you to see. We didn’t get a 23 Week picture, but expect us to post one this upcoming week for 24 Weeks. We are also going to be posting some of the ultrasound pictures soon, so I’ll make sure to update with a blog post once those are up. Basically, keep checking in!

  1. Just came by via Top Mommy Blogs. Welcome to the MoM club! It’s a great one! My identical girls are 7 years old, but I still remember those kicks and hiccups!

    • Thanks for finding the blog! I look forward to getting some advice, if you would like to give some!

      • I always give advice in the form, “what worked for me with my girls was…” because we’re all different, and so are our kids! Please come and visit us at How Do You Do It? (hdydi.com). We’ve got a great group of MoMs with tons of advice.

        The thing I’ve found most helpful was identifying my priorities in parenting. Especially when you have two babies, there just isn’t enough time to do everything exactly the way you wish you could. Instead, focusing on the important helps me keep from feeling like it’s a grind. And, of course, I’ll tell you what everyone already has: Enjoy and experience the little moments, because they’re gone in a blink!
