So I am feeling huge and uncomfortable and......whiny! I know I'm carrying twins, but come on, why do I feel so much more uncomfortable than I did with Daci?! This weekend Rick and I celebrated our anniversary (6 weeks late) with an overnight trip downtown. We got to stay in the Hyatt Regency with Rick's hotel points he has earned from traveling. It was such a treat! We had an amazing room with an awesome view! I was so excited when we got there. We headed straight out to dinner at the Grand Lux. We wanted to go to a fun but affordable restaurant that was pretty close to our hotel. We found the Grand Lux and it was only .4 miles from the hotel. Totally do-able, right? Wrong! We walked there and I did pretty good, I mean I was crampy and tired but I seemed fine. We had dinner and then started heading back. We stopped in to Nordstrom to look around and I all of a sudden got extremely light headed, dizzy and nauseous. I had this horrible pain starting in the front and radiating all the way to my back. I went in the bathroom and sprawled out on the floor, shaking really bad. Then I started dry heaving. It was awful! Every time I stood up the room would start spinning! After about 30-45 mins of this, I was stable enough to stand up and Rick got us a cab and we went back to the hotel. I just kept thinking, I am only 22 weeks! I feel like I did at 40 weeks with Daci! Well, I have been looking at pictures from the first pregnancy and I think I have figured out why :) Here is a comparison of the two pregnancies.
On the left is me at 14 weeks with Daci....I still have a flat tummy. On the right is me at 15 weeks with the twins. Ah!
Anyway, enough with my pregnancy ranting :) Here are some precious pictures of my peanuts. These were taken last Thursday at 22 weeks. They are looking so good!

Here are some pics from our anniversary weekend. I met Rick at his office and got to see it for the first time. Kinda fun to see where he spends his days :) This is just one of the Conference Rooms he was set up in that day.
