Trapped at Home - Week 2

So at my last appointment, my OB wanted me to start a modified bed rest routine - where I should be laying down 6 hours a day (not necessarily all at once). I started working from home last week and am now on week 2 of being trapped inside. It isn't too bad as long as I keep a schedule of things to do to keep me from going crazy.

My next appt is Thursday and I can't wait since we'll be having an U/S - I keep wondering how much each baby weighs now. I'm hoping closer to 3lbs than 2.

So tomorrow I'll be 30 weeks - I'm hoping to make it to 36 weeks. We shall see how it goes. So far so good, but I know things can change quickly.

28 Weeks - The Final Countdown Begins

Wow - can't believe I've made it to this milestone. At this point both babies weigh a little more than 2 lbs, so there is much more weight to gain before the end. But the end is in sight - finally. If I believe my Dr that these babies will be out by week 38, we only have a max of 10 more weeks to go. That in itself is AMAZING!!!

My next Dr's appt is on Friday at which time he's supposedly going to give me the green light for modified bed rest. At first I wasn't sure about that since I wasn't having any underlying conditions, but as time goes by and the aches and pains increase, I can totally understand why this needs to happen. For instance last night insomnia took hold and I was up from 1 - 4 AM wide awake. I actually got out of bed, did laundry, cleaned up and tried to organize my recipe card holder. Who does that???

Glucose & Baby Shower - Week 26

Guess it's been a busy week!

Last weekend we traveled back to the east coast for my baby shower, it was very nice and we had a great time. It was so good seeing all my girlfriends who not only came to the shower, but they came out to dinner with me on Saturday night as well. We received lots of nice things, but still need a few more items. Luckily we received a lot of gift cards and money to make that a little easier!

Yesterday I took my glucose test and found out today I passed - no problems! I do have slight anemia and need to start taking an iron supplement. Apparently, that'll give you a ton of constipation - which I'm not looking forward to. Back on the Colace and Miralax!

My belly has popped and my inny belly button is morphing into an outie. All my friends thought I looked huge. At my shower I looked like a pink circus seen above. I'm standing next to my girlfriend who gave birth to a baby girl in April. My friends made me wear a silly tiara and mom to be button.
