Well I am 30 weeks along. Praise God I have made it this far. But am I EVER feeling the pregnancy woes! I am emotional, everything hurts, I can't sleep, I am peeing every 30 minutes to an hour, if ones not moving around the other one is, and I have one set of feet up in my ribs and another one down below. Sometimes the pressure is so immense I cant even walk, and the pains are so sharp I cant even stand up straight. BUT..... I KNOW when they are in my arms, I wont remember a thing, and it will have ALL been worth it. I am doing my very best at work to make it. I reeeally need to make it to 34-35 weeks. Whatever time I take now takes off of my maternity leave I get to spend with Gavin and Paige and I dont want to take any time away from them. I see my regular OB Wedensday where he will check me for dialation and what ot for the first time. Kind of nervous, I would FREAK if I started to dilate. I have never went into labor on my own, and am quite scared. I am also quite scared of c-section....well VERY scared of c-section. I dont want to be down and out after they are here...I wanna be able to hold my babies and do what I gotta do with them ya know....esssspecially with two of them! I have another ultrasound next Wednesday, and am anxious for that appointment to see what they are weighing in at and how the fluid is doing around Gavin, hopefully it has gone down. This very may well be my last ultrasound before I have them...how exciting right!!! We have been SO very blessed and need for close to nothing...I know once they get here there will be stuff that we didnt think of or something, so we saved money aside from baby shower for that. We were so nervous financially, as any parents expecting twins would be, but we have been BLESSED beyond words. Thank you EVERYONE who has helped us, there are SO many of you, we cant tell you how much we appreciate everything. God we give you PRAISES and GLORIFY your name. What would we do, and where would we be without YOU GOD. And what would I do without my mom! Who knows! She has helped SO very much. And my dear sweet husband, oh how I love him. The other day I came home for lunch with a dozen red roses, two of my favorite candy bars, and a wonderful card, saying how proud he is of me, and how I am doing a great job. He wont even let me get off the couch when we are home. He is taking care of his family, and doing a GREAT job! Will give an update after my doctor appointment on Wednesday. God Bless !!

So we had an appointment with our perintologist (high risk dr) with a level II ultrasound as well as an appointment with our regular OB. All is going very well. Paige which is baby A who will dliver first and is lower is weighing in at 3lbs2oz and she is head down, Gavin which is baby B and a lil higher up is currently breech (feet down) and is weighing in at 3lbs1oz! Their weights are great, they are about in the 65-67th percentile. They were unable to check my cervix via ultrasound because Paige was resting her lil head right on top of it, so she was hiding it...and glad to know that, definately explained why I have SO much pressure, little twerp! Gavin has a excess amniotic fluid around him, which is what they call Polyhydramnios, BUT I am clear of gestational diabetes and seems to be no chromosomal problems, which is what sometimes causes excess fluid. So now I have to go for an ultrasound every 3 weeks instead of 4 to monitor me. It can't really cause too many complications other than discomfort and pre-term labor. Here is a GREAT tidbit I thought. I have gained only 21lbs since the start! I was proud of myself for that! And I must admit it is not because I have been eating right. But now that I know I am on a good weight train...I think I am going to start eating alot better so I can keep my weight gain at a minimum. My fundal height is measuring that of 1 full term baby, and their combined weight is that of 1 full term baby, 6lbs3oz WHEW! If I can make it to 36 weeks I should have some 7lbers! WOW.!. We are praying and hoping for a vaginal deliver, c-section just scares the heck out of me. I am not a major surgery kinda girl, and I would like to avoid any downtime after they are here, I wanna be able to hold and care for my babies soon as they get here! I am also a BIG WUS when it comes to pain...nope nope not a good big fan at all. But they both have to be head down for that...so keep us in prayer they will cooperate. I can't believe how big they are already! I asked the tech if she would switch to 3d to take a couple face shots, and she sure did. I was excited, all the techs are super nice there. Well that pretty much sums it up I suppose. Until Next time, oh and I will be sure to post some new whale pictures...oh oh I mean belly pictures shortly! God Bless!!!! : )
