30 weeks pregnant

28 weeks pregnant

29 weeks pregnant

People have been asking to see pregnant pictures so here they are. Things are going well, I am 30 weeks pregnant today and had an ultrasound. Baby A is weighing 3 pounds 5 ounces, and Baby B is weighing 3 pounds 3 ounces. They are very close in size, their measurements are measuring 30 weeks and 1 day so they are right on. Both babies look really healthy and they even have hair, which is sooo weird because Mackenzie was completely bald. I now have to go to the Dr. 2 times a week starting next week, once for an ultrasound and then the other to the hospital for a non stress test. This is so not going to be fun, but it is important for the little ones.

As for me I am doing ok. Carrying two babies is soooo much harder than one, even though Mackenzie was 10 pounds, there is just something different about having two babies inside of me. I loved being pregnant the first time around, but am finding it very uncomfortable right now. I hate complaining, but at times it is unbearable and then others it isn't soo bad, just depends on the day and where the babies are laying.

Last week I had to go to the hospital because of dehydration, I was given two shots to stop contractions and a steroid shot to help develop the babies lungs. Other than that everything has been going great. I had initially gained 30 pounds, but in the last week I have lost weight, I think because of drinking sooo much water now and not being hungry because the babies take up so much room. I am still teaching stroller strides 4 times a week, but I have really slowed down, as there are things my body just won't do any longer. The Dr. told me that he misspoke last time I saw him and that he wants me to deliver at 38 weeks, which means Dec. 24th. Bret and I am going to try to talk him into changing the date because I can't imagine having twin birthdays on Christmas Eve every year, I will keep you posted as we hear more. Other than that not much going on. I promise I will post more often these next few weeks, I have been getting yelled at:(

Mackenzie had her 4 year old preschool halloween party today. For the past few days we have been baking cookies for her classmates, getting her goodie bags together and making sure she had everything for her costume. This is such a fun age, she is soo into everything. Bret was able to come to the party with us because he was working nights, which was fun to have him with us. They played lots of games and of course ate lots of sweets.

Mackenzie is also in dance and is loving it. She has a dance recital on Dec 10th, and for the finale there is a daddy daughter dance, they actually have to go to rehearsal once a week for 4 weeks. She is soo excited, daddy too, not sure if he really wants to dance infront of all the people, but he is so excited that he gets to dance with Mackenzie.

Mackenzie is just growing by the minute and is so excited to be a big sister. She is so cute helping set up the rooms, cleaning the clothes etc. The babies will be here before we know it:)
