Hello everyone! Sorry it's been a minute since I've updated but I just didn't feel like it... no reason really. I have nothing to do ever. All of the NST's have been good! We did have one incident last week where I went to the docs and my blood pressure dropped to 90/47 and has been low pretty much every day. When I take the blood pressure medicine it drops when I don't it's high.... I was feeling weak and shaky and was real pale so the docs took my sugar and it was fine. I had to lay down and drink juice. After about an hour it came up a little and they let me go. :) BUT that was last week and earlier this week it was low but I was feeling okay. Also, last week the boys had their last growth scan and they BOTH weighed 4 lbs 5 oz each! AND the doctors scheduled the babies c-section for JUNE 14th! That will put them a couple days over 37 weeks. That's term for twins. We are very excited and nervous at the same time. I am just nervous because of the operation itself. I know the babies will do great and will be just fine! So, that's pretty much the update for now. There are a couple pics below.. Update again soon!!

Hello. 33 weeks! I have had 3 non stress tests so far and the first two have been great! The boys were so cooperative and we were only there for like a half hour. Today on the other hand... Baby A and B have completely shifted. Baby A was transverse right and B was transverse left. Last night I was up in the middle of the night for like an hour and half feeling braxton hicks contractions. Now Baby A in presenting head down and Baby B is breech on my left side. I was feeling them move around a lot last night but this morning I didn't. When we got to the doctor they were doing their practice breathing and B even had the hiccups but they were not cooperating with the movements that the doctors need to see. On the ultrasound we are supposed to see 3 body movements and a muscle movement (which is the hand opening/closing, etc...) After they weren't getting the movements on the ultrasound she decided to put them on the heart monitors and they wouldn't stay on! So, I drank some apple juice and moved around and got back on the ultrasound. A finally cooperated!! So, we were just waiting on Baby B to move around. After 2 hours he didn't!!! I was getting really uncomfy and worried. So, I was hooked back up to the monitors and they finally stayed on. They needed their heartbeats to go up and down and stay acclerated for 15 seconds. They still didn't realllly do that but they were strong heartbeats. So, instead of admitting me they just told me to go home and keep an eye on their movements and I have to go back again tomorrow for more testing. Since I've been home I've been feeling some kicks and punches- just not as much as usual. I chalk it up to the fact that there is soooo little room left in there for the little guys! I will keep everyone updated again tomorrow.

No pics today! But hello!! I can't believe it! My first goal from the doctors was 32 weeks and WAH-LAH I am 32 weeks and 3 days! When I went to the doctors on Thursday she took me off of work until after the babies come so my goal is to rest and grow babies! That's the most important thing right now. I do have to start going to the hospital for Non-Stress tests twice a week (starting this Wednesday) and still go for my regular clinic check ups and ultrasounds. I have another growth scan on the 20th and I am really anxious to see how much the little guys weigh. When I went four weeks ago they were 3.1 and they should gain up to a half of pound a week.. so they should be between 4 1/2 and 5 lbs. I hope so anyways! I was kinda disappointed when I was taken off of work because I felt the time would go more slowly but actually I love being home. I have been sleeping SO much better, the ligament pain isn't as horrible as it has been, (trust me- it's still there!!) and I feel so refreshed. I'm not sure if I already posted this or not but the boys room is pretty much done! Leon hung the curtains up last week and I already started washing most of their things. I only took the newborn clothes/onesies off the hangers and put them in the hamper because they got soooo many clothes that I am not going to wash the bigger ones until they get bigger. :) I did wash all of the blankies and towels and stuff. They are ready to be used! My mom and I are going to pack their diaper bag to get ready for the hospital and my suitcase too. Better safe then sorry! I wanna be prepared. Twin pregnancies are so unpredictable! But I do think that is it for now. I will update again soon! I do have more time now..
