Bedrest it is..............

Things have been quite interesting since my last post. I saw the doctor 2 weeks ago and 2 days after I saw him, I started getting some swelling. Over the last 2 weeks my blood pressure has been up and down and the same with the swelling. Last Friday, I called the doctor just to leave a message and let them know it was happening and the doctor ended up faxing a request for me to go home because my blood pressure was 144/90 when I was at work. I rested all weekend and went for a check today............the doctor put me on bedrest mainly for my swelling but to also prevent anything else from developing like pre-eclampsia. So far everything has been great and that is the way he wants to keep it. Thankfully it isn't strict bedrest. I can still go to a movie or visit friends, stuff like that but to keep it to a minimum.

The babies heartbeats were just great today. They still have room to move around and switch positions. I will still go this Thursday for my regular scheduled appointment and for my ultrasound to check the growth of the babies. I will obviously update after that appointment!! I'm SO anxious to see how much they weigh now.

Here is an updated picture of my ever growing belly. This one is from 30 weeks which was 2 weeks ago. I HAVE grown since this picture, I assure you.........



These boys are still movers and shakers but they are good and don't keep me up at night. The only thing keeping me up is my frequent potty breaks!!

I will update more on Thursday........

Love,

Pure Joy!

These babies are just amazing little men and I haven't met them yet! They have been growing great and have kept so healthy from the day of conception. Maybe it's what I'm doing/eating or maybe it's just them. Whatever it is, I couldn't be happier.

Our last ultrasound appointment was this past Wednesday and these boys look great. Some updates from that appointment:

Jaxson (Twin A) - 144bpm.....3lbs 1oz which measures 1 week ahead of schedule
Jayce (Twin B) - 138bpm......2lbs 15oz which measures 4 days ahead of schedule

I still have about 9 weeks to go and if my little men can hold out, they will surely be big healthy boys. The ultrasound went well. Not only are their weight and heartbeats going good but the amniotic fluid is still great and they are even practicing breathing on their own. That is just awesome to see them actually breathing inside me!!

In addition to my ultrasound, I also was tested for gestational diabetes which thankfully came back negative. I was also able to get the H1N1 vaccine as well. So I should now be fully protected.

I mentioned in the last ultrasound post that the pictures didn't make it onto the disk so I have those pictures as well as the new ultrasound pictures to update......who's ready for a slide show??



Jaxson - 24 weeks

You can tell by the ultrasounds that they sure have grown over the last month. Our next check-up appointment is November 19th. That'll be the same as the other checks just to listen to their heartbeats and measure them. Then our next...........and maybe last..........ultrasound is December 3rd.

I'll keep you posted!!

Love,
