I really need to get better at this

Well, once again, it has been a while since I posted something here. Since the last post, we found out that we are having a boy and a girl, which is pretty exciting, and has helped the planning quite a bit. Angela and Holly (her sister) went to Babies R Us again and added a lot of stuff to the registry, like bedding, clothes, etc.

We have also had two ultrasound sessions since the last post, one at 18 weeks and another at 22 weeks. Scans from both are available in the gallery. They still look mostly like little aliens to me, though.

Angela has also started to feel them kicking, which is very exciting. I have even gotten to feel them, which was neat. The first night Angela remembers them kicking, she was laying on the couch, and her stomach moved! I quickly went over and was able to feel the little kicks. Moments like that make me very happy, and are a nice interlude to the typical feelings of worry that I'm going through.

Earlier this week we had our tour of the hospital. I wonder how much of it we will actually remember by the time the babies get here. Just finding the elevators might be a problem, since the entrance we're supposed to use changes based on the time of the day we arrive. They did a very good job of explaining everything, though, and added some comfort by answering questions. We will be allowed to have four extra visitors during labor and delivery, which I thought was interesting. I don't know if we will invite others to come or not, but it is nice to know that if we want someone there, it will be possible.

I guess I had a lot to talk about, but that's it for now.
