Our girls are here!

I don't have tons of  time right now to post but just wanted to let you all know our babies have arrived.  I ended up developing preeclampsia and they were born at 34 weeks exactly.  June 22, 2011!  They are doing fabulous!  They are in the NICU but aren't on any oxygen and are taking all of their breastmilk by bottle!  They are perfect!

32 weeks!


We got some professional pics taken last saturday and it was so much fun and they turned out so good!  Now we just have to figure out which ones we want to buy.:)  I can't believe we are already at 32 weeks!  This pregnancy really has flown by!  We are trying to get everything done around that house that needs done before these babies arrive.  We've also been putting together all of our bouncy seats, swings, pack and plays, stroller, car seats, etc.....washing and putting away baby clothes, sheets, blankets, etc.  We've had two more showers thrown by my friends from work and Rob's friends from work and we have been so blessed by everyone's generosity!  We have one more shower tomorrow that my mom, sister, sister-in-law and friend, emily is throwing! I'm so excited to see some people that I don't get to see very often!
I had an OB appt this week and an US.  Everything still looks great!  The girls were measuring 4lbs 1oz and 4lbs 4oz.!  Both are head down too!  My dr checked my cervix just to see if anything was going on.  My cervix was soft, so at least it's doing a little something but nothing it shouldn't be doing right now;).  She also told me to limit my 3 shifts a week to 8hr days instead of 12hr days.  I am so glad because I am really slowing down.  By the end of a 12 hr day my feet and ankles are so swollen and I am so exhausted that I feel like it takes me a couple days to recover.  I worked full time for 32 weeks though, so I feel like that is pretty good...and I know that I could keep doing it but for the safety of the babies, I'm glad I don't have to push it.

How far along? 32 weeks(measuring 41 weeks!)

Total weight gain/loss+32lbs. in 32 weeks!

Maternity clothes? Yes; they are all getting small but I really don't want to buy anymore at this point

Stretch marks? Not that I have seen

Sleep: Not very good. I have to pee at least 5 times a night and just have trouble getting comfortable, but I think I am getting used to getting less sleep.

Best moment this week: Seeing the girls on US again and knowing they weigh over 4lbs!

Movement: Yes!  Lots and Lots!  I think they are having little fights in there

Food cravings: not really craving anything...I am starting to get bad reflux.

Gender: Two Girls!!!  We now have a list of 5 names that we will take to the hospital with us and decide once we see them.

Labor Signs: Nope

Belly Button in or out? Outie:)

What I am looking forward to: Them being here!  I just wonder all the time if I will go into labor or have to be induced.  It is just so exciting!

Weekly Wisdom: Surrender all your fears to God

Milestones: less than 6 weeks to go!
