The twins FINALLY have Namesđź’™

As many of you know, my husband and I are expecting twins! We are approaching the 32 week mark and it seems as if time has flown by. My pregnancy has been filled with a ton of doctors appointments here with my regular OB, a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, and a Fetal Cardiologist. We have been going to a doctors office at least once a week since October. How annoying right?

Although that’s is what’s best for these boys! They are what’s called Monochorionic-Diamniotic (Mono-Di) which means they have separate sacs but they share one placenta which puts them at high risk for TTTS. Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is when one twin takes more nutrients than the other and causes uneven growth. Luckily, the boys have been within 1% of each other and have weighed in at almost exactly the same every two weeks! They are growing great and we are hoping to have a normal delivery here with our regular OB (because Dr. Borders is simply the bomb).

Everything with this pregnancy is going great except for the fact that we have struggled to settle on names for these two stinkers. However, I think we can finally say that we have decided! We like unique names and we want all our babies to have special, uncommon names so with that being said….

In approximately 4 (ish) weeks we will welcome MEMPHIS and NASHVILLE Smith!

We haven’t fully decided on middle names because choosing first names has been nothing short of agonizing, (I really don’t know why we struggled so much this time) but at least we will be able to call them by name instead of Baby A and Baby B. Which is simply a relief! A huge weight liftedđź’™

We are still on the lookout for middle names so comment or email us with your suggestionsđź’™ We would love to hear what you would pair with these two unique names!

Baby Shower Shenanigans

So from the moment we were told that we were having twins I haven’t been able to think about much more than just that. We are having TWO babies at ONE time. We would need doubles of a lot of things and we had just recovered from having our first baby!

Just kidding, but seriously, how are we going to afford TWO at one time? I just hoped and prayed that everything we needed would just fall out of the sky. HaHa!

Well it definitely didn’t just fall into our laps but we have been extremely blessed with amazing family and friends who recently showered our little family with tons of gifts for the boys! We are so grateful for all the things we received and we absolutely cannot wait to use everything when the boys arrive.

Clothes, Bath supplies, changing pads, blankets, car mirrors, boppies, tons of diapers and wipes, and MUCH more! We could never thank everyone enough. I understand that it’s flu season and there are so many things that are pulling people in a thousand different directions but I wanted to say a very special thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to spend a little time with us.

Here are a few pictures of the shower and some of the great things we got!
