October 23 Baby Shower

I am back dating this post a few days as it is to be about our baby shower on Saturday. As many of you know my friends/neighbors are also pregnant and so we had a big bbq and joint baby shower for all three of us. It was wonderful and I want to share some pictures, courtesy of another friend/neighbor, Jim Phillips. He did a fantastic job and we are all so very grateful! His lovely wife, Kristie took the pictures actually at the gifting part of the shower and she too did a bang up job! There are so many more photos that I just couldn't load them all. This is a small sampling...Enjoy!

October 19 thirty weeks

Hello all! Well, as usual no news is good news. This is my last week I will have without a doctor's appt. Between the 2 drs I have been going somewhere 3 out of 4 weeks. That is going to end. I will start seeing reg OB every week after this.. dunno what that means for high risk doc. Guess I will soon find out!

Our big bbq/shower for us neighborhood gals is this Saturday. Looking forward to that but sorta crazy since its here at our house and all three of us have been sick with long drawn-out colds these last few weeks.

The boys seem well in there- get to bouncing around a few times a day. I promise to try to get some pictures of my tummy at the shower to post. I think I look close to what I did at 37wks with boone.

Hope all is well out there!

October 6 growth update

Went to high risk dr (MFM) today and both boys are still right on average. One is 2lb 11oz and the other is 2lb 8oz. Blood pressure is good, no gestational diabetes, no protein in urine... all is well! The boys are viable now if they had to be delivered but 32 weeks is sort of the line you really want to cross. Dr said that the risk of permanant complications significantly reduces at that point. Of course the goal is to go full term and bring those babies home with me!

October 1, 27.5 weeks

Just popping in an update, no news is good news, but I know its frustrating to check a blog and there not be anything new there. I go to one of my two doctors just about every week. So far so good! I am waiting on my glucose test results and go to the high risk doc next week for a growth check (babies not me!).

We went to Waffle House last night for dinner and I barely squeezed in the booth and felt sorta clausterphobic the whole time, so the belly is definitely growing! The boys go through phases of quiet and then thump all around in there. I am getting tired a lot and don't usually sleep through the night. Guess my body is getting me ready!

10 more weeks to go!
