3rd Shower-

I had another shower- hosted by my aunts and sister in law- well my aunts that are my in-laws, but they are all more like my aunts...Steve was really blessed with such a wonderful family. I mean I love my mother in law- she is just a peach! She really is one of the sweetest people that I know, along with Lauren, my sister in law...she is freaking great! We get along so well- she is a good friend to me along with my being my sister in law! Anyways, the aunts are wonderful as well. They hosted me a perfect babies' shower- it was a really good time! They got me my diaper bag- I am OBSESSED with this diaper bag! My friend, Molly has one and I just love it! Now I have my own Petunia Pickle Bottom Bag- THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE! Love you all...here is the picture of what my bag looks like...so chic!

31 weeks!

Another week has passed us by- the boys are moving a TON! This week we actually saw both of the boys moving at the same time on my bare belly- you could see little feet. Steve thought that it was awesome! Anyways here are some pictures of my 31 week belly.


30 Weeks!

Holy crap- 30 weeks pregnant!!! Should be expecting these little guys in 6 to 8 weeks...I am thinking more like 6, but I have my next appointment tomorrow with another bio physical...see how they are situated and ask more questions as to when we are thinking here. We are so excited....I just can't wait to meet these little guys- well I can wait, don't want them too early....here are some pics of me at 30 weeks...


29 Weeks!

Another week is passing us by....have another bio physical this morning, so I will keep you posted on that...but here are some new pics of me and the boys- they are moving so much it is crazy and Steve can actually feel them, we can feel Luke's little feet right under my ribs- he is my active guy- maybe that is why he is smaller than Will, burning all those calories moving around....


Update on boys

So we went in today for our first weekly bio-physical...it is basically an ultrasound for measurements- they want to make sure that they see the babies breathing and measure everything, check kidneys, hearts and bladder and all of that- they want you to score 8 out of 8 on these test each week- week one- which is week 28 pregnancy- we scored 8 on both babies....Luke is measuring smaller than Will which has really always been the case- Luke is 2.3 pounds and heart beat of 150- Will is our little chunk 2.14 pounds and heart beat of 156. Luke has hair on his head- it is funny to see that....but all in all doing well. Have our next bio on 11/15- each Monday now....

28 Weeks

Well I have made it another week! Each week feels like a milestone- so we go today to get our ultrasound/growth scan- anxious to see how much they weigh and to make sure that they are growing correctly. At my 28 week appointment my weight was down- now at 156 from 162 at my last two week appointment- I think that most of that was due to water weight gain, but my OB doesn't want me to lose anymore weight...cervix is still closed and tight and heard both babies heart beats- all seems to be good so far! Here are some pics...


2nd baby shower!

I am so lucky to have all these great family and friends around me to share in our happiness of these two little boys! I had my second shower on Saturday at a winery...it was a lot of fun! My dear friend, Laurel, threw it for me....it was just a perfect day with friends and my mom and sister in law and mother in law! Thanks to everyone for coming...


Sneek peeks of nursery

Here are a couple pictures of the nursery....my mom is making the valances, thank goodness....she is so good with that type of stuff. We put new carpet in the house last Saturday and then on Sunday we went crazy on bringing all the baby stuff up...I have been waiting to decorate, this is my thing! Still have some more items to purchase but you get the idea....hope you like it as much as Steve and I do.

27 weeks! Third Trimester!!!!

Well I have made it to the 3rd trimester and just so happy to be on the home stretch to meet these little boys! All is well so far....I have switched up my diet from the help of my dear friend, Liz, who is going to be a nutritional therapist- so she has MANY foods/meals that are low in glycemic index so that my blood sugar will not spike after foods. I had to cut out all my sweet cravings- I was REALLY starting to get along with donuts well. So my snack now is frozen green grape that Liz told me to eat and I love them! Sweet potatoes for breakfast with eggs and trying to steer clear of the carbs- I tried them and they really raised my sugars....so as of right now checking my blood 4 times a day and trying to watch my food intake. Total weight gain is close to 30 pounds so far! I am really ok with it, it is basically all belly...so that works for me. The boys are moving a ton and I am really feeling it which is super cool. We go next Monday to the OB- 28 week appointment and we also get a growth scan/ultrasound. Then I go in every week after that appointment- it is getting close. My OB is thinking anywhere from January 2-9th! Keep you posted with more updates after my Monday appointment.
