~quick mid-month update~

We had our 33 week US and appointment today.  Both babies are doing very well.  Mommy is hanging in there!  I was sent to the hospital late last week to have contractions stopped.  I am currently 60% effaced and 1cm dialated.  Dr. told me today that he just wants me to see 35 weeks.  If I am doing ok then, he might push me a little further, but he would be happy to get to 35 weeks and deliver.  I am a mixed ball of emotions about it all.  Prayers for 2.5 more weeks of "baking" are greatly appreciated.  We are so thankful that they babies are doing well.  God is GREAT!!!

~Our Twin Pregnancy: Month 8~

I have been horrible about keeping track of dates and such this month.  I haven't felt the best, and it seems that time is getting away from me.  We finished our kitchen remodel, and the bathroom is almost finished.  We haven't even started on baby prepping yet. 

At our 29 week appointment I was measuring 34 weeks.  Dr said his goal was to see us hit the 32 week mark.   I started seeing a PT to help with the muscular spasms and pain at 29 weeks as well.  I felt really good for about 5 days, but then the pain came back in full force.  Luckily it is worse at night, so I am able to get some things accomplished during the day.   I had some days of dizziness and nausesness around 30 weeks. 

 It wasn't hard to spot this Easter Egg on Easter!!

At our 31 week appt I was measuring 39 weeks!!!  Yes, I feel like a full term momma!  I have officially gained 30lbs. Both babies had good strong heartbeats on the US.  Brock and Lynlee were both practicing their breathing at this appointment as well!!! 

I can't believe how I can feel excellent one day and the next I am a complete mess.  I am so thankful for the "good"days.  The bad days are rough, but I am still extremely thankful and blessed to be carrying these babies.  I wouldn't trade the pain for anything (not even early delivery.)  I want Brock and Lynlee to be HEALTHY.  I don't want to see them hooked to tubes and wires....the thought just really scares me.  We made it to 32 weeks (our Dr's goal!)  I can't believe that we will meet them in 5 weeks!!! 

Pregnancy symptoms:  Sleepless/ uncomfortable nights, swollen feet at night, sore muscles/joints in morning,  heartburn, crazy left abdominal and back pain.
Cravings: Famous Amos Cookies (I eat A LOT of them!!!)  Chick-Fil-A milkshakes.
