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:
