It seems only right to me that I formally close this blog as I've moved into the world of mommyhood.

For my few followers...the girls came in September. 6 weeks early but they are absolutley perfect.

I do have another blog that I just started about their day to day and a bit more than that. If you'd like the link post a comment and I can attach.

I hope to share this blog with my girls one day.

In the Hospital...

Well I said I was going to blog more but I haven't. Even now that I have all the time in the world I just don't have the motivation. I don't know why.

I'm currently 32 weeks and 2 days along. HOWEVER, Baby a tried to make an escape last Wednesday she ruptured her membranes (broke her water). It was 1am and I was getting up for my first pee of the night since falling asleep at 11pm. I went to get up and a little wetness came out. I was wondering if I just wasn't holding it in. I kept my momentum of getting up and made my way to the bathroom. I got up to go wake J and more leaked out...that's when it really clicked in that it had happened.

I went to wake him up from his deep slumber and had to tell him I wasn't joking. He was great though. I had to go back to the bathroom because of the leaking and had to delegate to him from was pretty funny. I had an emergency number in my purse and asked for one of my baby books that had a list of what to bring to the hospital because of course that bag wasn't packed, even with the list I forgot a lot.

It only took us about 25 minutes to get to the hospital. You kind of have to put all decency aside when walking into a hospital with wet jogging pants...but at least I have a big belly to explain it!

I was admitted into the hospital and given a steroid shot for the baby's lung development and hooked up to IVs and baby heart rate monitors. I didn't sleep very much.

I wasn't having any contractions through the night so they transferred me to another area for monitoring and well here I am still a week later in the hospital. My fluid is too low for them to feel comfortable sending me home. But they keep dangling it in front of me...I'm going to tell the doctor to only tell me when they are 100% sure I'm going home.

I was transferred to from by window side bed yesterday to a less optimal one. But it is what it is...

The babies are both doing well. The heart rates are perfect and they are growing like weeds! Baby A is 4lbs and Baby B is 3lb 14 oz.

So that's where I'm at currently.

I'm back!

I've been super busy and really not motivated to blog since March. However, I have so much to be greatful for and I think that's another reason for not posting. I don't want to brag or be boastful when there are still so many mommys in waiting. I was just torn. But I don't want to leave the impression that I've forgotten about everything we went throught to get here. I'll never forget...

The pregancy has been going really well since I last posted.
-No more bleeding, thankfully!
-I've had lots of ultrasounds (almost every 2 weeks) I'll post pics later.
-We found out we are having two little princesses!
-The ladies are growing in the 50% and 63%
-The babies room is almost finished just a bit of decor to put up and waiting for the second bedding set to come in (the store only has one.
-Names are picked but we are keeping them to ourselves.
-The baby shower is set for September.
-I started my mat leave today, yea!

So the plan for now is to scrap my wedding album (we were married 4.5 years ago..I think I need to get it done before I have baby albums to get going

I also want to start stocking my freezer with premade meals with my moms helps.

Now that I'm on mat leave I should have a bit more time to get this blog back up and running.

Pictures from ultrasound




that longest night ever...

After what was the hardest night ever…cramping and lots of red blood, very little sleep. We still had to go to the doctors for an ultrasound this morning. We knew there would be nothing there. J tried to keep my mind off of it on the car ride by bringing up the most random topics…I love him a lot. We got to the doctors; I went to the bathroom, more blood but brown this time. The nurse called us into the room and I undressed and got on the table. She did an internal with wanda and there were two sacs, with a baby in each it them and they had heartbeats…126 and 130!!! I do have a hematoma, caused most likely by implantation, nothing to be concerned about unless the blood is accompanied by clots and lots of cramping. I’ll post pictures when they get emailed to me. TWINS!!!
