I was working on Thursday 12/23 and I look up and see Anna at my office door- what a great surprise! As you all know, Anna, lives in Yonkers, NY and she is from KC so when I get to see her it is a big deal!!! I just love this girl more than she will ever really know...and the best news of Christmas is that she is moving back home, well to Wichita in January for a job with Ashley Furniture...so happy for her and she can be close to home and close to Luke and Will....best christmas present ever!!!


Another belly shot

Merry Christmas and 35 weeks

Hello all-

Well I have made it to 35 weeks....next week we go into the specialist and they will measure Luke and Will and see where we stand on when to induce if we are even going to do that. I was told at my 35 week appointment that I am not growing anymore- my measurements have been the same for the last few weeks and I am up about the same on weight- up 37 pounds...so my OB told me that we will wait and see what the specialist say next Monday...so will be waiting for that day- both boys are head down still so vaginal birth is how we are going to start as long as I can dialate ok. As of yesterday only a finger tip dialated she said- so we shall see....will keep you posted.


34 week appointment and other news

Hey all...

Been a while since blogging- I am now over 34 weeks and feeling good, but still really tired and the extra 35 pounds of weight is starting to take toll on me. We had another bio yesterday and both boys are head down and we will be trying for a vaginal birth! My OB and I discussed it yesterday and that is the plan. We have another specialist appointment on 1/3 to weigh the boys again then I go see my OB right after that and we may be having a talk of inducing me depending on if Luke is gaining....so that was another exciting moment yesterday.

The other BIG news is that we sold our house! Can you believe that? We took it off the market on 11/1- we had a couple look at the house over Labor Day weekend and they called on 12/15 to see the house again- well on 12/16 we had an offer and we countered and finally after 4 counters we both agreed...we are set to close on 1/31 and today we are looking for a new house! All of this happened so soon that we really still can't wrap our heads around it- it is horrible timing, but God works in his own way and we knew that we needed more room for our soon to be growing boys- will keep you posted on all of the exciting news to come!


33 Week Appointment Results

All is good! No dialation- she did say that she could feel Luke's head- C R A Z Y!! I am going on bedrest- working 1/2 days only per my OB. She wants me at home resting and laying on one side and trying to nap more...need to get more blood flow to the boys and the best way to do that is laying on my side. So I am ok with that- thank goodness I work for my dad- he is being so great about all of this, but I must admit, I have made it to 33 weeks one day with no bed rest...so that is great!

Christmas 2010

I tried to take a couple shots of our Christmas tree with the dogs- didn't turn out so well...but thought that you would like to see them. Also got one of Zoey, our cat....who just loves to sit on my blanket on the couch. We got new ornaments this year for the boys- you will see on the tree a "L" and "W"- thought those were cute...

33 Weeks!!!

So I am getting bigger and bigger and I love the belly. All is good- we went on Friday to the specialist and both boys are weighing closer together- Luke Baby A is 3 pounds 15 oz and Will Baby B is 4 pounds 2 oz. We are monitoring them to make sure that they grow closer together. I go back to the specialist for another growth scan on 1/3/11 to make sure all is ok. I go see my OB today for my 33 week appointment- thinking that my doctor is going to cut back my work hours- she wants me to rest more and lay down for good blood flow....I will keep you posted on that. Here are some pictures of my 33 week belly!


32 weeks and update on boys

So I don't have a picture of me this week- I forgot to take one...maybe tonight I will take one....anyways- all seems to be going well- I went in for my appointment yesterday- up 35 pounds now and got the ultrasound of the boys. Both were very active and breathing and sucking on their own...the issue is that Luke- baby A is much smaller than Will Baby B- Luke was 3 pounds 6 oz and Will was 4 pounds 8 oz....Will is our CHUNK!! So my OB wants us to go to a perinatologist on Friday for them to do a 2D or 3D ultrasound to check out Luke's cord and placenta to make sure that there is no issues....so I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying to God that we just have one small boy and one larger boy....please say a prayer for these two miracle boys- Luke has been moving a ton this morning- he is telling me- "mom, don't worry I am alright" Will is moving too, probably wants to be closer to the food-- ha ha. Anyways, will blog on Friday!
