Meeting the Redds

A few weeks ago our really great friends that we met in Singapore came to Florida to go on a cruise! They recently moved back to the US. Well it so happened that there cruise port was the next city over from us! We love the Redds and we were really excited to hang out with them for a few hours. Also, when we met Sarah and Jeremy, they were pregnant with their boy Crew but Clark and I moved back to the US just a few months before he was born! BUMMER! So now Crew is almost 2 and we finally got to meet him! He is a little CUTIE!

We can't wait to see them again!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well folks I am 24! It seemed like I was 23 for FOREVER...I mean I guess I was for only a year but still! My birthday was great and I had so many friends wishing me well! Thank you! My birthday kinda crept up on me this year but none the less, I had a great day! My awesome husband made me the oreo pudding truffle I requested. It was TASTY!

I spent the day going to look for some kid clothes, eating at McDonald's for lunch with Clark, and then treating myself to a pedi! The rest of the day was spent resting until we headed out to dinner at Carrabba's! The food was yummy and I really did feel special! I can't wait to spend the rest of my birthdays with my new family!

33 weeks

I can't believe that I am 33 weeks along! That means Clark and I get to meet our babies in (HOPEFULLY) 4 weeks! This pregnancy has really gone by super fast for me. Clark mentioned today that its recently seemed to go by really slow for him.

We had an interesting week awhile ago when I was sent to the hospital for contractions. They were not painful contractions,just a tightening. I've been doing really good since leaving the hospital so I hope I won't have to go back until I am ready to deliver. I've been told to take it easy and to be on bed rest but its a modified. I still try and lay low but if I need to get out, I can.

I'm to the point where I just want these babies out! I mean I can def. wait though till its time. I'm not totally miserable but wobbling and going to the bathroom constantly has just done me over. I  just need to enjoy these last few weeks of having Clark and Jenna time because it won't be like this ever again.

I got a pedi the other day and the lady doing it told me my feet look great! Haha! That was nice to hear! I haven't experienced any swelling yet but I'm just sure that it will happen sooner than later!

A few weeks ago I went to the perinatologist and the tech showed me that our babies indeed have some hair on their heads! From the pictures it looks like alot which I would be so happy for! I guess we will see when they arrive!

More to come!

Hospital Stay

Oh I was hoping it wasn't going to come to this until I was indeed ready to deliver. I went to my 31week perinatologist appointment today and everything looked fine on the screen and then I got strapped to the fetal monitor and wow was I having contractions. I couldn't feel them. Apparently since my last week visit, I have been having some braxton hicks contractions pretty regularly...like 4+ an hour. I guess I should have called my doc!

Well the perinatologist told me to head straight over the hospital and check myself in and that I would be there over night. Clark came and has been here ever since. What a sweet heart :) I was hooked up to an IV. I got a steroid shot in my bum so the babies lungs can develop a little quicker. I was still having contractions 2-3 mins apart so they gave me a shot called tribudaline so my muscles including my cervix could relax. The contractions then were about 4-5mins so I got another shot. Finally they started to be about 10 mins apart so I got one more shot. No more shots until tomorrow morning when I get the steroid shot in my bum again. Good thing needles and shots don't bother me too much. I just dont want to be nauseous!

 An OB from my practice came and checked me and my cervix is closed! Good! Stay that way please!!!
I just took a pill called procardia. It is used to treat high blood pressure and to control chest pain. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. It can be used during pre-term labor too.

I FINALLY just ate too. I hadn't eaten since 8:30am...hospital food never sounded so good.

I hope to be able to go home tomorrow around 3:00pm. I'm guessing I will be on bed rest though...Good thing I already had my baby shower and took my maternity pics yesterday!

Now for some GOOD NEWS! Our babies are still head down and the ultra sound tech showed me that they have hair on their head! It was pretty cool too see!

I've never stayed at a hospital over night so good luck to meeeee! Thanks for all those who have showed love and support :) Let's hope they stay in there until 36-37 weeks!

Baby Shower

Oh I can't say enough about this past weekend! It was a BLAST! I had my baby shower on Saturday and my family was able to come into town! They have not visited the Boca area before so it was nice to have them here! My mom should be back in a few weeks once these babies are born though.

My sweet sister in law, Kristin, hosted my baby shower and she did an AMAZING job. She is really talented and has so many fun ideas. The theme for the shower was "Thing 1, Thing 2" from Dr. Seuss. The colors were red and white with some hint of blue. It wasn't too whimsical which was nice. Everyone loved the invitation, food and creative decorations Kristin made!

I received some great gifts and everyone was very generous considering we are having two babies. It was crazy to think that it was my turn to have a shower this time! I still need quite a few things I registered for so off to the store I go this week and next.

My in laws were great! They had everything under control and I seriously didn't have to do anything but show up (well walk down the stairs since it was at the house I am at!) They are the best! My friend Danielle from  Tampa even drove down to see me! How sweet of her!

Aren't these food accessories awesome!
The Seuss juice was a huge hit too!

29 weeks

I've started going to the perinatologist every week now and that means more pictures to share! At my last appointment, which was yesterday, the babies were looking great! Baby Boy is still upside down and snugged way down there while Baby Girl is still breech! This time around the babies were both kicking each other and it was fun to watch on the screen while it was happening. They will check the babies weights next week. Baby Boy was learning how to breath in the womb as his stomach was going up and down. We couldn't see Baby Girl doing it this time but we did see her open and close her eyes a lot! I then got strapped to the fetal monitor where they said the babies heart beats were great and that I was was having NO contractions! Sweet! I hope it stays that way! Every week these babies get so much more active, I can't believe it. Half the time their limbs are sticking out and moving across my stomach. Sleeping has become a little more uncomfortable but I think I can last 8 more weeks until I hit 37 weeks. The perinatologist said let's try and get to the next big mile stone...34 weeks!

Here is our girl!

Doesn't it look like she is blowing a bubble? Also, the last picture is a frontal view! Kinda scary!

Here are some GREAT shots of our boy. This time he decided to cooperate! He is so cute!

Can't wait to meet these little ones. On a side note, my mom and dad are coming down this weekend! Yay!
