30 weeks!

30 weeks(measuring 38 weeks)!

How far along? 30 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: +25 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yes

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: Not very good, but the Ambien doesn't even do anything for me, so I'll just have to embrace it as part of pregnancy;)

Best moment this week: knowing that the girls will be here in 6-8 weeks!  That isn't very much longer!

Movement: Yes!  Lots and Lots!  Baby A is definitely much more active, but Baby B's placenta is kinda in her way so i don't feel her as much.  But I think she is just calmer too:)

Food cravings: Not really craving anything.....I've actually been nauseous again

Gender: Two Girls!!!  That as of right now, don't have any names. I changed my mind:)

Labor Signs: Not Really....starting to have some cramping and possible contractions but nothing consistent or worrisome.  My OB is going to check my cervix at my next appt in 2 weeks.

Belly Button in or out? Outie:)

What I am looking forward to: 32 week US to see how big they are by then!

Weekly Wisdom: Surrender all your fears to God

Milestones: We've made it to the 30's!!

I have a funny little story I might as well share.  I had been sick when I was supposed to drink my glucola for the gestational diabetes test, so I didn't drink it. Instead I drank it last week for my appt.  Well I started drinking it and I felt a little icky as I was sipping it but it really didn't taste that bad.  I got half of it down in 5 minutes.  Then I felt like some of it might come back up. My plan was to swallow it back down so I wouldn't have to do this again.  Well when it came up, it was way more than I thought it would be and it sprayed outta  my mouth all over the mirror in the bathroom.  Then I continued to throw up in the sink and while I was doing that I was peeing all over the floor!  Oh the joys of pregnancy!  I had to laugh, because it really was funny once it was all over:).  So I drank it again today and managed to keep it down.  Now I just hope that I pass because I don't think I can do the 3 hour one.  I think I'll just go on a diabetic diet instead!:)

It's been a while....

Sorry it has been so long since I've posted...  I usually try to at least do my posts every two weeks, but this past week I was SO sick!  It started out like a cold with a cough but just kept getting worse and worse.  I went in for my 28 week appt and the Dr. sent me to the OB unit to get fluids because I was getting so dehydrated.  I have never felt that sick for that long.  It went on for a week and the worst part was the cough.  I couldn't sleep or eat or anything because I would just cough and cough and cough.  My whole body hurt...and I was running out of clean underwear because every time I coughed so hard I peed my pants:).  My Dr. finally put me on antibiotics and that is when I started feeling better.  They ended up testing me for Pertussis because another nurse on my unit had it and I had all of the symptoms, but it came back negative.  Whatever it was, though, the antis kicked it and I am better so that's all I care!  This pic is from 28wks 5 days.....well lets just look at a comparison though:)

9 weeks
Almost 20 weeks later:)

We also had our first shower, thrown by Rob's sister, Michelle, our neice\, Kailey, and Rob's mom!  It was so much fun and I was glad I was finally feeling better by then so that I could be there:).  There were so many cute lil things.  Rob's mom crocheted these little diapers as party favors and they had little chocolates in them..

Michelle made these really awesome cookies that said, "twin girls" and "culross girls"(I think).  I say I think because I asked Rob to get a pic of them and he said he did but he didn't.  I'm a little sad about that right now because I just figured it out.  I am hoping someone else did.  There was also a cute cake(which Rob got 20 pics of )...

And the guys(my dad and rob's stepdad) drove golf carts to pic up the guests...because they had to park at the top of the hill and the house is at the bottom of the hill.  Rob also got 20 pics of these, but none of the drivers(maybe I'll be in charge of the camera next time;))

We got so many nice things and it was so much fun!  I think Rob had fun too, but he is glad he doesn't have to be at any of our other showers:).

opening presents(rob trying to figure out who it's from:))
 Cute lil cousin kailey
Two of the 4 great grandmas:)

Also I guess I should update about the babies:)!  They are doing great!  They were estimated to weigh 2lbs 10oz and 2lbs 11oz at our 28 week Ultrasound.  I almost have 6lbs of baby in me....probably do by now!  We only got a couple of pics because I was feeling so bad...

Baby A of course would not show her face, but she has hair!  You can see it floating in the amniotic fluid where the arrow is pointing:).
This is Baby B's have to really look at it to find it but she is looking straight at us and has her little arms under her chin..

I'll post the survey with my 30 week post....I can't believe I'll be 30 weeks next Wednesday!!!
