With that said the rest of my appointment went well. I have officially gained a total of 25 lbs., basically stating I am the size of a normal 9 month pregnancy at 26 weeks. According to the Ob's I am right on track for twins and shoud have 15-25 more lbs to go. Oh the joys of carrying twins:) My OB has decreased my work week from 5 days a week to 4 days a week. So starting next week I will work Monday and Tuesday, have Wednesday off, and work Thursday and Friday. Not so bad since I have weekly doctors appointments on Wednesdays anyway...except for next week! I have no appointments next week at all!!! But the following week back to weekly ultrasound appointments and now I will start seeing my OB every two weeks. But don't get me wrong I'm not complaining. I have been extremely blessed with this pregnancy thus far with little to no problems. I hope to carry these girls until at least 36 weeks!

Here is Abigail in 3d at 25 weeks.
Here is Abigail in 2d. This is a good profile picture.
The little round blob above her abdomen is her hand making a fist.
This past weekend was a busy one as well, but in a good way. Elizabeth and Jennifer at my work threw me a baby shower. We had a great turnout of 15 people and we got lots of great baby gifts. Stroller, Vera Bradley baby bag, adorable Pooh stuffed animal, monitor, hygene and care items, Pooh lamp, diapers, assorted baby toys (my fav are the two from my mom- a chick and a cow that both make noise), clothes, hooded towels, bath items....just to name a few. The closet is getting very full already. I need to organize and put some of the clothes in the dresser. That may be on my list for this weekend.
The rest of the weekend was spent with our family from out of town (my mom, dad, sisters and brother-in-laws, mother-in-law and sister-in-law). Joe and I are pretty tried today, and getting up for work was the worst. We should have gone to bed at an early time yesterday but we had to watch the last space show on the Discovery channel. We were both totally addicted. Luckily no big plans for this weekend.

My Saturday was productive and fun. I got up around 8:30am and got right to candle making about 9:00am. I made three different batches: Christmas Berry, Christmas Spice and Black Raspberry Vanilla (a new fragrance and a personal favorite of mine). I had a blast listening to music and just working. I also came up with some new and creative ideas which I cannot tell, since some may see them in the future:)
