Tomorrow I will be 30 weeks and I can't be more excited. It's crazy how close it seems to be getting. I just started my 6th week on bedrest and though I definitely have my meltdown days, it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.
I've been seeing my OB every 2 weeks and still having my ultrasounds once a month to check the growth of the babies. I have my next ultrasound on Monday. Last month they were 2lbs 4 oz and 2lbs 1 oz. The last couple OB appointments they did a swab test that can tell if your at risk to go into labor in the next 2 weeks since I'm at risk for it. I just had it done again yesterday and it was negative again which means I have a 98%-99% chance of NOT going into labor in the next 2 weeks. So that is good and an answer to prayer. We (me and my doctors) have decided to just do a C-section. The boy is butt down right now anyway so I would have to have one unless he turns. On top of that, just having a shorter cervix it could stretch it out too much and just because one is head down doesn't mean the other will be and it could just cause complications. So that being said we will schedule our C-section around 37 weeks or so unless I go into labor before that. So either way I will be a mom of 2 children in a about 7 weeks. So weird!
As far as the gestational diabetes goes, it's been fine. My levels are normal and the diet really hasn't been too hard. It's more of eating 6 small meals a day. There are times I am so hungry and can gorge all day but can't.
I had my baby shower about 6 weeks ago now and it was perfect! My mom and sister put SO much time into it. They really put alot into it and I felt almost undeserving. Alot of people showed up including old high school friends. I felt very humbled to see all the support I had.
We were so blessed by our families to get all the "big" things we needed for the twins. We got both cribs and changing tables, bedding, car seats, double stroller that both car seats go into, 2 pack n' plays, 2 bouncers, and a glider. We have such a giving family and we couldn't be more thankful!
We really have been so blessed with great family and friends. Many of my friends come over to keep me company, although I feel bad because we really can't do anything. :)
Please pray that everything continues to go well and the babies stay healthy and growing. Pray that they are born full term and that they don't have to spend time in the NICU. I again appreciate all your prayers and support. I love that I don't feel alone on this journey and I'm so excited we are almost there.
