So blessed.

So today I really started thinking about how truly blessed we really are. I am 30 1/2 weeks pregnant right now with twins. I have read soooo many stories and heard so many stories where twins have already came at this point or the moms have been put on bed rest and the babies come early. Then the babies spend a ton of time in NICU or worse. I am still working, still (somewhat) getting around, and my babies are still growing inside of me! Then all of a sudden I went to the hospital today because my cousin is 28 weeks pregnant with a singleton and she is on strict bedrest in the hospital because her placenta ruptured. I am just so lucky. God has really blessed us and I pray that the babies stay inside of me and growing healthy and strong for at least another 6 weeks! That is all.

30 weeks!

Wow! 30 weeks! When we went to the doctor the other day the babies got their growth scans and they are 3 lbs 1 oz each!!! They are growing great! The doctors are impressed. I got 3D pics this time. You can't really see baby A that well because his face was squished against my uterus. lol. You can see baby B's face pretty good. I see my brother when he was a baby in him. :) I took pics of the pics with my camera so they aren't that great of quality but you get the idea lol. I think I will be working til 31 1/2 weeks- that will put my last day around May 5th. I am not ready to be off because I am not getting paid but I am ready to be off because it's sooooo hard growing babies. I'm sure you mommies know that already! The books I read said the babies should grow about a half pound a week now so if that's the case and we get to 36 weeks the babies should be 6 lbs!!! 32 weeks is my first goal with the babies that the docs gave me. When mommies of multiples go into labor at 32 weeks they usually don't stop it and the recovery time for the babies isn't that long.. they see some NICU time but not very much. So, that's pretty much how my last appt went. I am going back on May 6th for another appt. Leon got the second crib put together today and one of the swings. I told him not to put the other one together because I don't know if I want to keep them. It's not exactly what I had in mind and it doesn't look safe and sturdy. I know it prolly is but even the reviews aren't that great... Their room is pretty much done- we just have to hang the border and curtains and it's done! :)
So Jasper had surgery the other day to get neutered so their is a picture down there of Jasper and Leon sleeping after his surgery. He's doing better now but I think he either has an eye infection or an eye cold. :( He's still on antibiotics so I don't think it's an infection. I hope everyone is well and I will update again soon!!

Our first (and hopefully last) scare!

Well, I had to go to the ER for the first time during the pregnancy. I had a pretty big scare but the babies are just fine and I am okay too. I was just dehydrated and pulled a round ligament muscle.. or something like that. It's pretty normal apparently and can happen any time. Along with the spotting I had in the morning. I had to be hooked up to the fetal heart rate monitors and blah blah blah but it was all precautionary to make sure the babies are okay! I had to take the day off of work but I can go make tomorrow if I have no more symptoms :)

So, thank you all for the concern and NOW I have to take it easy for sure and just let my babies grow! :)

Hello, Third Trimester (28 weeks)

Hey everyone! I had a doctors appt today and it was stupid. I thought I would find out so much today! Like; when the babies would come, when I would be off work, if I was going to have a C-Section, etc... BUT all I got was a stupid resident who told me she couldn't find the babies heartbeats on the ultrasound! I knew she was wrong because I can feel the babies move all the time. So, she went and got the attending and he was able to show her how to find them. She wasn't very experienced with multiple births. I told her about all of the symptoms I was having like: leg cramps and swelling, over heating to the point of nasuea, extreme exhaustion, feet swelling, etc.. and she said it was all normal. I don't know if I want to see her again. I made the decision that I will probably work for the rest of April then take May, June, and July off. It's best for me and the babies. So.. anyways, Leon and I went to Babies R Us and had some gift cards and returns and spent $280! We had a blast- Leon had more fun that I thought! Today I went to Target and spent about $170 of the gift cards I had for there. I still have about $100 in gift cards for there. We have everything we need though for now so I will save them for when the babies are here. So, for Easter we went to my aunts house and had a grown up Easter Egg hunt so there are two pics and one more from my Babies Shower. That is all for now. I will update again soon. TTYL!
