Christmas and Baby Update

We had a great Christmas. Everyone spent the day at my inlaws opening presents, eating and playing games.

The babies are doing great. We saw Maberry today and they weigh 4 pounds each! They are huge! They are both still breach and their heads are right next to each other like they are talking. We are so glad that they are already so big. The longer they have time to grow the better.

Back home

We are back home just in time for Christmas. I am so glad that we didn't have to stay in the hospital! Things look fine though and the contractions are under control. So hopefully we will have a few uneventful weeks. I will be laying around the house doing nothing. My parents got into town yesterday and today my dad took a few pictures of my big pregnant belly. Here I am at 30 weeks:

Another update

Well we are still at the hospital until Friday. We came up here on Monday because I thought I was having contractions. Which I was, and I was dilated to 1 1/2. So Tadvick started me on procardia to stop the contractions. It has worked really well and he thinks I should be able to go home on Friday. I will have to stay on the medicine and I will still be on bed rest, but I get to go home! He will take me off the medicine at 34 weeks and we will see what happens after that. Please pray for the babies to stay in my tummy as long as possible!

Our First Visit to Hendrick

Yesterday was an interesting day. I went to my doctor appointment with Tadvick and I started having contractions while I was there. So he sent us over to labor and delivery to see if he could stop the contractions. They put me on an IV with fluid and eventually got the contractions to stop. So he let me go home and has put me on bed rest. This was so much sooner than I thought I would have to go on bed rest if I ended up on it at all. So I am so glad that the babies are ok for now and won't be born anytime real soon, but I am really not excited that I have to be on bed rest. Can anyone recommend a good book?

9 weeks Left!

Yesterday we went to see both doctors. The babies weigh 2.15 and 2.14, and are now both breech. So I have a head in each rib and they are both conspiring to kick my bladder! They somehow switched places too. Dr. Tadvick said everything looks good and that I am already full term for one baby! I am feeling pretty big and uncomfortable at this point. But it is all worth it! Here is the 28 week belly shot:

We finally finished painting and got new carpet! It looks so great. And we finally got our entry way cleared out. It will still be a while before everything is organized and put away, but for now you can at least walk through our house again.

The babies will be here in less than 10 weeks! I am so excited and so glad that things are almost ready for them.

Baby Shower

This weekend was my baby shower here in Abilene. It was amazing! We are so blessed to have so many great friends and family, and such a wonderful and giving church family. They are just so amazing. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough. We got so much of the stuff that we will need for Mason and Sawyer (it is crazy how much stuff 2 babies need!). I was overwhelmed by everyone's generosity. I had great shower hostesses that kept everything running smoothly and helped me out so much. They all worked so hard and I love them all! Here is a pictures of my hostesses:
Here is a video of all of the loot and a few pictures from the shower:

Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone!

24 Week Checkup

We have decided on names for the twins- Charles Mason and Sawyer Kate! We went to both doctors on Wednesday for my 24 week checkup. Everything looked really good. Mason is breech and Sawyer is transverse though. They were both 12 inches long and weighed 1 pound 11 ounces and 1 pound 10 ounces.
Here is a little clip from the sonogram where you can see Mason's face!

Happy Halloween

Monday night we went to a Halloween party and Eric got this great costume from the Groves.

Last night when I got home from work our power was out and had been since about 3. One of Eric's friends is the manager for the new restaurant at Prime Time and had invited us out for friends and family night to try it out. So we just went out there early and played a round of miniature golf and looked around. It was really nice and the food at the restaurant was good. It is just like Buns Over Texas was, just with more menu options.

This and That

Last weekend was Homecoming at ACU and our busiest week of the year at work. This year I was in charge of pre-game and had to help with everything else! It was very busy and I worked about 25 hours of overtime.A lot of my friends from college were here for the weekend, but I didn't get to see them very much. It was good to at least get to say hi though. I miss everyone living here and all of the fun group stuff we used to do!

I am 22 weeks today! I can't believe how fast it has gone by so far. My friends have planned my shower and now I need to register. A friend of mine from church that has twins is going to help me out because I don't know how much I need of what or what brands are good, etc. The house is no where near ready for them, but I am so excited that the babies will be here in a little over 3 months. I can't wait to see what they will look like. Eric and I looked very different as babies. He has blond curly hair as a kid and I was born with a ton of dark straight hair. Here are some pictures of us:

Here I am at 22 weeks:

The Long Weekend

We had a busy, productive, crazy, long weekend. Friday my parents and I drove to Dallas to pick up the cribs and changing table. We went shopping and then went to pick it all up. But it didn't all fit in the car very well. My mom ended up riding in the back laying on top of a box.

But we got it all back to Abilene and found some really cute baby clothes!

While we were gone Eric started working on the babies room and there was an accident! As a result, we are going to be getting new carpet! Which will be nice, because we needed new carpet anyways. Now the paint incident and the nail polish incident can be fixed.

On Sunday we cleaned out out garage to make room for all of our stuff that is in the babies room right now. My parents, Eric's parents and my grandpa all came over to help. The difference is huge and we have a lot more room out there now.

We still have a ton of work to do on the house. We are planning on filling in the atriums and making them offices. And we need to get new carpet and a new roof. With the babies room we still need to finish painting, build the cribs, have an electrician come out and install and fix the light fixtures and put everything away. There is a lot to be done!! But not this week because it is homecoming. So if you don't see me or talk to me, it is because I am working like crazy. But it will all be over on Saturday! Hope everyone has a great week!

20 weeks

I had another appointment with Dr. Mayberry yesterday. Everything looked great! Both babies weigh 14 ounces now, so they are doing really well. He said that next time I go in (in 4 weeks) they will be a pound and a half each.

Here is a picture of me at 20 weeks.

Baby Bedding

Last weekend when we were in Dallas we bought our baby bedding from Pottery Barn Kids! It is so cute and I love it! The top one is the girls bedding and the bottom is the boys bedding. Next weekend we are going to Dallas to pick up the cribs and the changing table.

Eastern Caribbean Cruise

We just got back from a week long cruise to St.Thomas, St.Maarten, and the Bahamas. It was beautiful and very relaxing. I read 4 books and I slept a ton (probably more than anything else)! On the first day at sea I accidentally fell asleep on my lounger on top in the sun for 2 1/2 hours and had some very interesting burns. You can see them in any pictures of me. I don't know what I did, but my forehead and the tip of my nose was burned. And then my tankini must have blown up and the bottom of my stomach wass burned too. Te worst part was that I couldn't lay out anymore after that! It was a great week though and a nice break away from work. This week is going to be crazy though. I have 1 session Thursday, 1 Friday, 2 Saturday and 1 Sunday. I guess that is what happens when you are gone for a week!

The Weekend

We had a good weekend. I had lots of photo sessions and watched a lot of football. Some of our friends from the metroplex came down to visit us and we had a fun game night at Melody's house.

This weekend we drove to Kingsville for Labor Day weekend. Kim and Chrys went with us and we had a lot of fun. The car ride down and back was not much fun, but the rest of the weekend was great. We played a lot of games, watched the first Texas game of the season and ate a lot of food! I also got to see a really good friend of mine at church that I hadn't seen in a very long time. It was a great weekend, here are a few pictures:
