Lil Update

Splashin'
We had our first actual OB appointment yesterday! We have had to previous ultrasounds, but this was our first actual appointment! We didn't talk TOO much about twins, he usually waits until after the 1st trimester...just to be safe. We are just trusting God and continue to believe all will be fine!

He did a quick little peek at them with the in office u/s machine....it's super old and grainy, so I actually didn't see much but he did :)

We did discuss the fact that I will be induced or have a c-section at 37 weeks, if I haven't had the babies before then. I am praying that I make it to 37 weeks...which would be Feb 14th! Pretty darn perfect if I do say so myself! I would love your prayers in this regard as well! I've done the NICU thing and it is so hard....now I know that the possibility of them going to the NICU is very high...but I also know several sets of twins that did not have to. And I am praying we can be in their shoes as well!

So....that is only 6 months away! Time is going to FLY! Once the holidays start in November....it's just going to pick up speed. We won't be traveling after Thanksgiving, and we'll just stay close to home!

On the other end...my little man turns 2 on Friday! I can't believe it! Although sometimes I feel like he's already been two because of all the things he can do already. Talking in sentences, he knows his colors and counts to 10....and he's been doing this for some time now. But to sit back and think...wow....2 years old. It blows my mind. I'll save more bragging for his birthday post :) But I am one proud MAMA!!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
