Tomorrow I will be 20 weeks! That's the "official" time when your chance of miscarriage with twins goes way down, so I am pretty happy to have made that milestone! Now we just need to get to 24 weeks next. We are taking it 4 weeks at a time.

We changed our girls name from Cara to Amy, DH and his family were having trouble pronouncing Cara properly (they keep saying Caar-a) and DH was saying it bothered him to not be able to say his own daughter's name so we chose Amy instead. So it will be Matthew and Amy!

As for me I'm doing okay, my hips hurt terribly at night which makes sleeping difficult. Having major acid reflux at night so I spend some nights sleeping sitting up which isn't fun. My appetite is slowly coming back, which is good. Just anxious for winter to get here so I can see my babies! Next scan is at 22 weeks and DH is going with me, I can't wait!!

Hey Beth! Woohooo for 20 weeks! You go! I remember setting those goals and exceeding them and I know you will too! Matthew and Amy are wonderful names. Have you thought of middle names? Will you be using any family names? Yay for DH going to the next u/s with you! It is always fun to go together!

The sleeping sitting up is not so fun and neither is the acid reflux. I will be keeping you in my PTs and Ps and hope you get some sleep!

It's going to be Matthew Glen and Amy Elizabeth. Glen is my DH's name and of course Elizabeth is mine, Maddie has my middle name, so we're kind of keeping it all in our compact little world, LOL!

Love that you are using your names! Brie's middle name is my middle name and Z's middle name is DH's name! Everyone was asking us to use this name and that family name and we didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings, so we just used ours!
