Just Kickin'

I've finally been feeling my little beans kick a wee bit! It's very reassuring to know they're doing OK in there - but I look forward to the day when the movements are a bit more obvious. Having spoken to some other twin pregnancy mommies, I know I'm not alone in having moments of panic. Why haven't I felt them yet today? What's that weird pain in -insert random part of abdomen here- and do I need to worry? My feet are swelling up sometimes already. I'm on them a fair bit, chasing after my 3 toddlers all day. I don't remember swelling up this much with DD so early, but suffice it to say everything is different this time around. Different, and so awesome at the same time.

I've been collecting some things for the twins impending arrival. We purchased a Graco Duoglider double stroller, and I bought a Sleepy Wrap infant wrap carrier. I've heard nothing but great things about these, and since it will allow me (at least for the first couple of months) to carry both twins at once, I'm excited to give it a try! They also come highly recommended for kangaroo care. Being so close to Mommy means lots of warm snuggles and security for the little ones.

Next up on the to do list is to prepare meals and freeze them. If I get stuck on bed rest, I certainly don't want to leave the cooking to DH (aka: the king of chicken burgers and fries. Yikes!) So I think what I'll do is head to the store and pick up everything I need for lasagna, chile, soup, enchiladas, mexican casseroles, etc. and have them ready to go. If DH can throw fries in the oven, then he can throw a casserole in just the same! Have any recipe suggestions? Send them my way!
