update

Hello to all...I hope everyone had a merry christmas! Well I started going to the hospital for monitoring on the babies just standard for multiples. Well Friday after christmas I went in about 11 am. The monitoring usually takes about an hour. Well it so happens to be in the first hour I was there all strapped in and hooked up to the machine, Baby A which is the smaller baby was having decells. which means that the baby's heart rate dropped..so they decided to keep me on the monitor for another hour..well she did it again..It could have been a number of reasons why it dropped like she could have been pinching her cord or something. So the dr decided to keep me over night. They went ahead and gave me a steroid shot just in case I delivered early to help mature the babies lungs faster. I had to stay until saturday night around 830. Since then everything has looked great! But they still need to keep a close eye on the baby girls just to be cautious! So keep us all in your prayers that we will make it at least 2 more weeks if not longer so they can get their lungs fully developed and not have to stay in the hospital very long once they are born! So I have a scheduled ultrasound on wednesday and it is up to that dr if he is going to send me to get monitored that day and my regular ob is sending me to get monitored on Friday...Hopefully everything goes well and still looks good! If not he said I might just get to stay in the hospital until these babies are delivered which is not going to be fun considering the bed they put me in is so uncomfortbale. especially if you are strapped in to a monitor..Not fun!!! Anyways just a little update. I am 32 weeks today so pray that I make it to at least 34!!!! Hope everyone has a great new year!!!

31 Weeks and dr update!

WOW....I am 31 weeks that means I only have 6 weeks or less...I had a check up today and everything went well. He said my cervix is still closed so that is good cause these babies need to stay in at least 2 to 3 more weeks...it would be awesome but very heavy if I could make it all the way to Feb 2nd which is 37 weeks and my scheduled delivery date!!so anyways just thought I would update..I am now going to the dr weekly for a check up as well as an ultrasound to keep an eye on the girls! I go for an ultrasound tomorrow...maybe baby A caught up on eating this week..we will find out tomorrow!!!! til then I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

30 Week ultrasound

So I am 30 weeks as of yesterday. I cant believe how fast this is going. In just less than 7 weeks we will be called mommy and daddy!!!! We are very excited and ready as we are going to be!!! So I went to have an ultrasound today and everything looked great...heartbeats are still 144 and 141...the only thing he wants to keep an eye on is baby A's weight. Seems to him that baby B is taking most of the nutrients. Nothing to worry about but he just wants to keep an eye on it. Baby A is weighing in at 2 llbs 13 oz and Baby B is weighing in at 3 llbs 7 oz. So from 2 weeks ago, Baby A gained 8 oz and Baby B gained 11 oz. so baby A has only fallen behing BAby B about 3 oz but he still wants to keep a closer eye on it so I will be getting an ultrasound from now on 1 time a week! I just hope everything stays ok until they come out. Oh I also asked him if he could tell if they were identical or not..he said it is really hard to tell in an ultrasound so we wouldnt be able to tell until they came out. As he was looking at it he said that they sure did look like they are identical but isnt going to say yes because you cant really see it!!!! So we will see!!!! So there is a little update on ADDISYN and AUDREY!!!! I will keep everyone posted on how we are doing!!

29 WEEKS and 3 Days!!!!

So here is what is going on with me at 29 weeks and 3 days. I went to the dr yesterday and everything is going good still! the dr asked me if I was having any problems and I said no except that my back is hurting me really bad because I am getting so front heavy. He asked what I did for work and I told him that I work with ages 6 weeks all the way the 3 years so I am doing a lot of bending over, up and down, and lifting at work..so he told me since I am almost 30 weeks he would go ahead and put me on bed rest just to be cautious...well not bed rest where I am laying in bed all day just no work. So I am done working until these babies are a little bit older!!! Anyways I have another ultrasound on Tuesday and another dr appointment the week of christmas!! Its getting so much closer and Dave and I are about to have our hands full with 2 infants and we couldnt be more excited!!!! So I will keep everyone updated!!!! for now here is my 29 week picture....I am getting larger everyday it seems like!!!!

DR APPT

So today I went to the dr. My appt was at 1045 this morning so I thought that I would arrive at 1030. Well 1045 came around and they still had not called me back...finally at 11 they called me back to be seen. my blood pressure and weight is good so that is awesome! then I go into a room and the nurse does the heartbeats. one was at 146 and the other was at 148. they are still very strong! Then the nurse says "the dr will be right in" so I said "ok!" well 10 minutes goes by, 20 min....etc. then the nurse comes back in and says "sorry for the wait but the dr had to step out because of a delivery it will be about 20 minutes and he will be back, would you like to wait?" I said " yea thats no problem I will wait." well 20 minutes went by and she came back in and said.."umm...the dr wont be back until after lunch because he had to do an emergency surgery." I was like man.....so the nurse said "can you come back at 1" so I had to leave for about an hour then go back to the dr so that he can check me lol....man what an eventful day at the dr office!!! but I guess if he had to leave to come deliver my babies then it was ok that he had to go bring a miracle for someone else!!! Well I finally saw him and he said everything looks good..right on schedule!!! They have set my delivery date for me...I will be having these precious baby girls on February 2, 2009!!! if not before!!!! I will be 37 weeks and thats as far as I will go! anyways thought I would update on my dr appt!!! I go for an ultrasound on December 2nd!!!! I will know a little more after that so til then!!! Have a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!

SO WE WENT TO LOWE'S AND BOUGHT TWO COLORS OF PAINT, ONE FOR THE KITCHEN AND ONE FOR THE LIVING ROOM...WE WERE A LITTLE SCARED ABOUT HOW THE COLOR WOULD TURN OUT!! WE PICKED A COLOR CALLED PRAIRIE BRUSH...IT KIND OF LOOKS LIKE AN AVOCADO GREEN ALMOST!!! SO WE WERE LIKE UMM...I DONT KNOW ABOUT THIS..SO WE DID THE KITCHEN ON WEDNESDAY AND I WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT TURNED OUT GREAT! IT MATCHES PERFECTLY WITH OUR CURTAINS AND GOES REALLY WELL WITH THE KITCHEN TABLE AND CABINET COLORS!!!! ANYWAYS, HERE IS A PICTURE OF OUT FINISHED PRODUCT!!!!!



3 More Days!!!!

First, we had a baby shower back home last saturday and had a pretty good turn out. We got a lot of stuff that we needed but still need a few more big things but thats nothing that we cant handle!! The theme of the shower was "two peas in a pod!" It was very cute! My sister, aunt and mom gave the shower and I would have to say they did a very awesome job. Thank you to all of you!! I dont have any pictures from the shower because I didnt take any with my camera, my sister has pictures and mom has pictures I just have to get them. Anyways thank you again for everything!!! It will really help us out!! We already put together some of the big things!!! how fun is all of it!! EXCITING!


Second, I go to the dr on Monday for my monthly check-up!! Then on Tuesday I go to the ultrasound specialist and this is the day we will find out what the two little ones are!!! We cannot wait!! I have been counting down since the last visit!! The dr says he will be able to tell us if they are identical and if they are boys, girls, or boy and girl!!! I can tell you that Dave and I believe they are two identical boys from the get go!! but you never know maybe its one of each!! How awesome wood that be!!! Anyways I will have more to come on Monday and Tuesday, this was just a little quick update!!!

3 WEEKS!!!

Hello, so I went to the dr last Monday for my monthly check up...I will be 17 weeks tomorrow..Everything was ok...the heartrates were good..one baby was 144 and the other baby was 148...so everyone tells me that it sounds like I am having boys because they are so low...and usually girls are in the 160-170 range! So we will see...maybe its both...Well I did not get an ultrasound at this appointment because they are having to send me to an ultrasound specialist because I am high risk with having multiples....So the date is October 7th to find out what these babies are...boys....girls...or boy and girl! we will have to wait and see and I have another 3 weeks of waiting! Hopefully it will go by fast!! So I was a little disappointed that I did not get to have an ultrasound at the appointment but was put at ease about hearing the heartbeats...I was a little worried because people at work were saying I cant believe you havent felt anything yet....but the dr told me I shouldn't feel anything until about 18 weeks maybe longer! I am going to post a new picture of me when I am 18 weeks! that will be 4 weeks from the last picture so everyone can see how much the babies are growing!!!

BABY NEWS.....

Hello everyone! So I had my first dr. appt. yesterday!!!! I got to hear the babies heart beat and that was very cool...I was beginning to wonder if there was anything in there haha.....then the dr did an internal ultrasound!!!! Well, well, well...what do we have here....Here is how our conversation went....

dr: "well how many babies did you want?"
me: "I just want one baby for now"
dr: " then I guess we will have to find somewhere to put the other one!"
me: "no way, I am having twins?"
dr: "yes you are!"
me : " omg!!!!!"

Dave of course was suppose to go with me, but air force calls....Dave gets recalled and has to miss the appt...So when I was done at the dr. I thought I would call him to see if he was done with work..I said to him, " do you want to hear the NEWS over the phone or in person....he said over the phone...so I said oook..here it goes...."Do you want to hear about baby a first or baby b?" He was like noooo wayyy.....haha.....omg....yes I told him over the phone....he wanted to hear so I told him and I just couldnt keep it from him anymore!

Anyways we really didnt know what to think to hear that news even though I somehow new it was going to happen to me...Yes Dave and I were a little shocked but now I think that we just feel very blessed to be bringing two human beings into this world!!! It might be a little hard, but with the family and friends we have to support and help us through this I think it is just a start to a new journey we are going to be taking as a family of 4! Man just think in about 5 to 6 months we are going to have 2 infants!!!! Its very hard to believe but it is very exciting!!!!! We cant wait to find out what they are....I want to decorate!!! Well just thought I would update!!! I will of course have plenty more!!!

First Mowing


pet bees

I dont usually post anything....but I thought that I would go ahead since I did the yard this weekend.
I wanted to show everyone our new pets...they are very friendly and help pollenate our flowers. I was out mowing the grass for the first time friday and I discovered that we have a cluster of bees attached to one of the crape mertles, luckely they are not aggressive, otherwise I would be in a lot of pain.

WE HAVE A YARD!!!

So they sprayed our yard 2 weeks ago!!! I am very excited that we are going to actually have a yard and not have to worry about dirt coming into my house! It makes it even dustier than it would be if we didnt have just dirt!!! Anyways, its only been 2 weeks and our yard looks completely different. I think it looks so strange having grass because we have been looking at a dirt yard for the past 6 1/2 months! But it will be worth it when it is all grown and our yard and jordan and Ashley have the most beautiful yards in the neighborhood!!! I think we all should give ourselves a pat on the back for all of the hardwork on keeping the yard up before getting it sprayed!!!!! Anyways here is a couple of pictures of before and 2 weeks after!





BIG NEWS!!!!

Well its been a while since I have posted anything, but I thought I should post this! Dave and I found out last week that I am pregnant and we are going to be expecting our first little one...So I have to tell you the story on how we found out lol!!!! Dave and I went to Wal-Mart last Wednesday to pick up a few things...little did he know I slipped in a prenancy test just to check. Well when we got home he was watering the plants outside so I thought I would take the test..Well it didn't do anything so I thought that maybe it was a bad test that I bought..So I put it away in the box and went on with my evening. Well an hour later I decided to go look at it again. Sure enough something had come up on it. I had to look at it twice then read the directions because I was so shocked haha..I took the test out and showed Dave and I said "I dont think this is suppose to say this haha, while showing him" and he was like, "do you have another one of those?" and I said, "no, but I think I am going to go to the store to buy another one!" So I did and this time I bought a pack of 2. I got home and took it and it clearly had 2 lines on it....positive!!!!! So for about an hour after I took the test we sat in the living room and stared at each other laughing....ummmm...what do we do now haha!!!?? Well anyways thought I would share the story!!! We couldnt be more excited about this little miracle about to enter our lives and for us to start a new chapter in our lives!!! We couldn't be more thrilled!!!



So, I think I am about 6 weeks or a little more. I cant be seen at the dr until I am about 10 weeks so my first appointment is not until Aug. 6th. I felt a little crampy the last week and was worried but everyone I talk to said that was normal. For the last few days I have felt great up until this morning. I tried to go to work and felt so sick..They sent me home..so I came home and took about a 2 hour nap! I feel better now. I am hoping just maybe I can get through this without getting sick...knock on wood!!!!! Well anyways, just thought I would update!!!

STANLEY JOE'S WEDDING!!!











So another little update on how our busy weekend went!!! First I got off of work at about 315 and Dave was already waiting for me to get home. We immediately left home when I got home at 330 to make our long boring drive to Katy, TX! It took us about 5 hours 15 minutes...that is short compared to what it usually is lol....what are speed limit signs haha!!! Anyways, We were rushing to get to Joe and Carries rehearsal hoe down and the Knights of Columbus Hall. It was really great seeing all of our family and friends! They played a slide show of them growing up and there were a few pictures of my little brother Matt. It was so sad to see it, seems just like yesterday we were all together. We all miss him so much and we know that he was there with us! He would have been Joe's best man I am sure but it was great to see the pictures and know that he is just looking over all of us! Well that ended our long Friday.




Saturday, Dave and I woke up and went to the bank to close our account with wells fargo. We use to have Bank of America but when we lived in Alaska, there wasnt one so we switched to Wells Fargo. Well now that we are living in Abilene, there is no Wells Fargo here lol. It is such a pain. Then we headed off to a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception!!! I just cant believe little Stanley Joe is a married man. I couldnt be more happy for the two of them!!! He is like a little brother to me and my brother Matt's best friend!! They had a candle on the alter in memory of Matt and Emily another friend of Matt and of the family carried it as her groomsman!!! It was very nice to know how loved and missed he is and we all love him so very much. It was very hard not too cry but I always have tears when it comes to my little brother!!! So now it was off to the reception. Man was this a nice and beautiful reception!!!! Check out this Cake!!!







How yummy do those look? Well they were very good haha!!! You wish you could have some lol..Jk..Anyways the reception was so much fun, I got to hang out with my family and friends!!!!





So to end the night we have a new married couple about to start a wonderful journey together. Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Joe Swinsinski. We love you Joe!!!!
