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!!!
