10 1/2 Weeks...

I figure I need to have an update on the progress of our twins, and my belly!! There won't be any bare belly pictures just yet...my belly is still too bruised from all of the blood thinner shots that I've been taking! But I'm almost done with those, and hopefully the warzone will go back to a normal color soon! So someday, there might be a shot or two of this belly--huge with twins! I just know I'm going to be big--and many of my students remind me of that daily! I hear, "Mrs. Steiner, you're going to be HUGE!" Cracks me up every time! And makes me happy! I never really got to be huge with Jonathan, so here is my chance to really get to enjoy a big belly! =) I'm silly, I know, but its the little things about this pregnancy that make me happy!

Here is one shot for you...kind of strange without my head, but you can definitely see a glimpse of the belly popping out! =)
I'm still feeling great. I am just so incredibly blessed to be one of those people who don't seem to get morning sickness. I'm well aware of the fact that I still have plenty of time where it could kick in, but I've definitely enjoyed the time not having it and getting to enjoy being pregnant!


I have about a week and a half more until my next OB appointment, and I am hoping that I can somehow finagle another sonogram then too! I am planning on meeting with my high risk doctor around 14 weeks, so I'm thinking that I'll for sure get another sonogram then. Maybe even a glimpse at the sex of the babies?? I hope so!


So all is well here in Steiner Twinland...thank you for all your continued prayers!!

Could you also send up a prayer for the family of our good friends Pete and Jolene Erickson? We just found out at church this morning that Pete's younger sister was killed last night in a home invasion. Her husband was also shot, but from what we hear, will make it through. I just cannnot imagine the pain and agony their whole family must be going through right now... Our hearts are breaking, and they are not even our relations. Death is something that is so hard to deal with, but this kind of random act of violence makes it so much harder to understand and make sense of. Please lift them up with us.

I can't wait to see your big huge belly! I expect LOTS of these pics!

I am so so sorry to hear about Pete's sister and husband. What a horrible tragedy! I will be praying for their family, the physical and emotional recovery of the brother-in-law, and for the entire family! So sad!

I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss. It is so hard to lose a loved one suddenly. This is Lance Jones mom. Our son Levi left us suddenly in July. I also think of Jonathan in July.
So happy to see the pic and know that you are going to have double the fun with twins. I think of your family often. Mary Lyn Jones

I clicked on the link from the praises on Kelly Stamps'(Kelly's Korner) Prayer blog. I, too, am on the praise list after getting pregnant after 9 years of infertility. We have a 10 year-old son that it thrilled to be a big brother in September...we found out recently that we'll be having a baby girl! :) Just thought I would hop over here and say congrats on your pregnancy - prayers that it will continue to be healthy and you will continue to feel wonderful! And also prayers for Pete's sister and the whole family - what a terrible ordeal. I hope everyone can feel the peace of God's unending presence during her husband's recovery and beyond.

I can't even imagine what they are going through. Home invasions are one of my biggest fears, but I try to tell myself, 'Oh, that mostly happens to the elderly'. This makes me scared all over again! I will say a prayer for their family.

And as for you..... grow, grow, grow! I am so excited to see your belly getting so big! =)
