31 weeks

 I thought it might be fun to post some pictures of my Twin Pregnancy.  Although they aren't the best quality of pictures as we took most of them with our phones, it's still fun to see how big I've gotten over the weeks.  I sure am getting bigger and more uncomfortable!

31 Week Ultrasound/Doctor Appointment
I had an ultrasound this week and the doctor said things are looking great. 
Baby A (Girl) Weighs: 3 lbs 9oz            Heart Rate: 145
Baby B (Boy) Weighs: 3 lbs 15 oz         Heart Rate: 165  
              (The boy sure moves around a lot!  Hence the higher heart rate I think!)

Baby B (Boy) is still a few days ahead of schedule as he always has been the entire pregnancy.  Baby A (Girl) used to be ahead as well, but it now about 3 days behind what she used to be so it puts her right about on track as to where she should be.

He said that both babies are transverse facing, so if they don't move in the next week or so I will have to have a C Section.  He said when you get this far along the babies run out of room to change positions anymore.

I now need to start going to doctor's appointments weekly, as well as now having weekly Non Stress Tests to monitor the babies.  I sure am going to be going to the doctor a lot!

He also said that we could schedule my 38 week inducing date next time!  (May 8th or later) But he joked and said he didn't think I would make it that long anyway.  He doesn't see any reason as of right now that I would be going earlier, but he said most women do.
 (I won't get excited yet, as I remember the doctors thought I was going to be going earlier with Logan's pregnancy as well because I was dilated and effaced so early.  I did end up going 3 days early with him so it will be interesting to see when I deliver the twins :)   )

Baby Shower

My sister in laws and mother in law threw me a baby shower!  So many generous people came to support including my siblings that are in town!  It was a lot of fun, and we were able to get some very useful gifts.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

 Here are some onesies that we made in preparation for "The Twins!" (Thanks for your help designing them Melissa!)  They were a fun decoration at the shower!
