22 weeks

I just thought I would let you know some of the things we've been up to. Last week Tyler went out of town and I started experiencing some dizzy spells and blurred vision. It was pretty scary since I was by myself and I didn't know who to call. I called the doctor and they wanted me to come into labor and delivery to be monitored if it got any worse but I was definitely to come in the next morning to get some tests done. Well I got up and drove myself... the doctors and nurses were a little freaked out that I did that, but I really didn't have any other options. They did all the tests and they said all was fine they didn't know what was wrong. Then last minute they decided to take my iron. In July I was a 14 which is good. Bad is considered 11.6... I was a 10!!! So they took my blood through my arm and took it to the lab. In the mean time they gave me these iron pills that made me fill very sick. Fortunately Monday I got a call and I'm 11.9 so I don't have to take the pills. Still not sure why I was getting so dizzy and blurred vision, the only thing I can think of is that my iron dipped low that night.

I've finished up Kidstuf at church... which is a good thing because I can't jump anymore!!! I was starting to look pretty pitiful. Not to mention the constant braxton hicks that I got while dancing. But I'm very very very sad to be done! I had lots of tears on Sunday and lots of hugs from all the kids that I've gotten to work with, they are truly some of the sweetest kids they are going to be missed tremendously. Not to mention the staff, can I just say that working for Buckhead church has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. The first thing I did when I moved to Atlanta was try out this church and then decided I wanted to volunteer so that I could make some friends. I loved every minute of it, I loved getting up early on Sundays and spending my Wednesday evenings there. I wish I could keep doing it and just sling two babies on my hips.

Halloween is over and if you know me that means that the decorations can come out of hiding. (The music began the beginning of October) Unfortunately since were moving I cant take out everything and it really is driving me nuts. I've made Tyler take me to the mall to look at decorations, I've gone to Heeney's three times. Heeney's is a store that only interior designers are allowed into and you can buy these beautiful ornaments and well basically anything you can imagine. My girlfriend Stephanie put me on her card as a buyer and I've fully taken advantage of that card. I seriously want to cry ever time I walk into that store the decorations are so beautiful. I took Tyler my last time and he was pretty amazed by it (and you know its awesome if he is amazed). Anyways, since I cant decorate I had to finish some crafts that I new I wasn't going to get a chance to do next Christmas. So I've finished beading the girls stockings, now I'm just waiting for Tyler to decide on what pictures he wants me to create inside this space. As soon as I get to Dallas I can work on the tree skirt.... and Auntie Andrea's house :)

As for movement.... I always thought that Twin A was the mellow one. I felt her very rarely but when we had the ultrasound she was the one doing twirls. Well it started probably on Saturday night but she is constantly kicking. Tyler just sits with his hand on my belly and a big smile on his face. I sometimes just laugh because its so cute. Yesterday while I was in the bath I was watching them make all sorts of weird shapes out of my belly. They can kick and shift as much as they want I just want them to stay out of my ribs, that hurts. I feel like I have a muscle that has ripped apart from my skin on my breast bone. It is so tender, I cant wear a normal bra because its so uncomfortable... Oh well I guess I'll be living in sports bras the rest of this pregnancy.

I know have two and half days left in Atlanta so I need to finish packing my suitcases... Tyler is going to pack the house later :)
