27 weeks!

I have to post about this cuz it is so exciting to make it one more week and I feel like 27 weeks is a good step. I wanted to wait until net week cuz I will be 7 months but I feel like it has been a while since I took a picture. I have been taking this pregnancy day by day and hoping that I will hold off to the end, it's just so releiving knowing i'm 3 weeks further than I was when I went into preterm labour. We are so lucky. I am growing daily and I honestly dont know where these babies are going to go cuz I was this big with Kyla at the end. I luckily don't have anymore stretch marks (yet) but really I can't help it if I do get them. I have accepted it that I will probably get lots. My life has been really boring lately with being on bedrest, so I am very limited to what I can do. I have been going for weekly checkups at the hospital and my first week I went in didn't go to well, here's what happened. My appointment was at 11:30 and they told me to be there early to fill out some forms etc. So we are breakfast at about 8:30 and left at about 10:30, Jill dropped me off and took the girls and went a couple places. Well the wait was long, even with my appt. They get a lot of walk-ins and it's baby crazy up here, they never have beds. Anyways I was in the waiting area by myself and started to feel really dizzy and I knew if I stood up I would pass out. Well luckily Jill came in with the girls and she went and got the nurse, so they took me into a room and checked my blood pressure and it was really low. They hooked me up to IV and I had to stay for a couple hours to get the fluids in me. Well I think it was cuz I didn't eat, the wait was long and I didn't get into a bed until after 12:00 so thats a long time in between eating for me. Anyways I made sure the next time I ate right before I went in. I decided I really hate hospitals and I am getting so sick of them! I just want this pregnancy to go by so fast and be done. The babies are moving like crazy lately and I am getting a lot bigger. I hate bedtime cuz I wake up so many times to either go pee or now rolling over I even have to wake up! Who would of thought eh? I don't think it's hit me really that we are having two...honestly I don't think it has! It probably won't until they are here! We have our names, stroller, cribs, and clothes all picked out, now I just have to buy it! This bedrest thing sucks. I wanted to take a trip to Edmonton this month to do some serious baby shopping, now it looks like it'll all be online. Not so fun but I guess it'll have to work.


Kyla is doing great, she actually got a fat lip this morning, she fell on a toy and cut it open...poor thing. She took it hard too, normally she is pretty tough and will get right up and be fine but I think she had a hard time with the fat lip. She held ice or a cold cloth on it for at least an hour and didn't want to get off my lap. (Which is also getting minimal!) She trys to lay back on my lap but my belly is so big that she can't and she got frustrated, it was kind of funny. Well I think thats pretty much it for now, my life is boring.


Here is her fat lip, not the best shot but you can see it on the middle of her top lip.

Kyla and Dustin playing with the last pile of snow in the front yard, he brought some of it from the backyard so there was more.

This was 24 weeks, I just never put it on here and that shirt no longer fits me!

Oh wow your babies are growing! I'm so glad you made it another 3 weeks!! I'm jealous that you've already got your names picked out. We've given up on even trying to find names. And unlike you guys we don't have two babies to name....

you are so cute, and I totally feel your pain, I HATE waking up when I have to roll over, it is like the worst! I am sorry you keep having bad experiences....but you are so close! So.....are you going to share your names??? And I feel bad for Kyla, she is so cute, but I think near the end kids start to realize that their life is going to change drastically, about a month ago, Scoty became so much more clingy, just in time for me to not be able to hold him as much, etc....good luck to you, I love the updates, and I like the new look!

You still look great! I'm so glad that things are going better. Hey, do you think you could remind me what your prenatal workout DVD is called? I'm trying to find a good one because the one I have is terrible.
Good luck with the next few weeks!

I love your hair in the first picture! You look dang good for a girl who is on bedrest. My pictures I would end up in pj's. When I was was told to "take it easy" after I went into prem labour with Ausitn I lived in pj's and ponytails! Poor Kyla... fat lips are no fun! So are you going to share you names? Hang in there, every week counts! Hope you can keep it up for another few weeks so those little girls can grow bigger. Hugs from down south!

Angie said...

Oh my another hospital visit. dang! You know if you were here we'd all be taking care of you. We miss you lots and you look FAN-freakin-tastic! Only a few more weeks left! Yippee! I laughed when I read that Kyla got mad she was running out of room to sit on your lap, that was funny. Well I'm glad you keep us posted. Hang in there, you're doing AWESOME!!!

You look so cute. I wish I looked that cute when I was pregnant. I have to say that I don't miss having to wake up so many times in the middle of the night to go pee, but I wish I wasn't waking up every 2 hours for feedings. This too shall pass.
