Week #29 was a good one for the most part. I am still feeling good, so that's what I keep praying for.
The week didn't bring too much excitement until my appointment with the midwife on Thursday. Lynn said that every thing was looking good and both babies are doing great. The heartbeat for baby A is in the 140's and baby B is in the 130's. Unfortunately, baby A (the presenting baby) is breech right now and baby B is vertex. We're really hoping that baby A will move head down, but space in there is really getting limited. Keep praying for us that we can get both babies head down and avoid a c-section if at all possible. We also found out at our appointment that the doctors will not let me get past 38 weeks, so if I make it to April 1st they will induce or we will have a c-section. If I make it that far, we're definitely waiting until the 2nd to avoid having April Fools babies. I've also been reduced to half-time at work. I get to work from home for part of the day and then go in, so I'm really thankful that I haven't had to take any time off yet so we can save it all for when the bundles of joy get here.
On Saturday I had an amazing shower at Wendy's in Mt. Horeb (thrown by Heidi and Wendy), with high school friends, mom's and family. It was really nice! Everyone was so generous again - thank you to everyone who came. I wish I would've taken a picture of me sitting next to the diapers - we got over 1,000 - it was awesome!!! I know we'll go through plenty more, but I am so thankful for the help getting started. Josh and I continually talk about how good everyone has been to us, as we would not be able to do this without your help. Hopefully I will get some pictures from the shower soon so I can post them. THANKS AGAIN everyone!
We got our maternity pics taken yesterday, and I hope a few of them turn out anyway. Shannon is so creative, so I am sure they will. I would think that with her help she can make me look okay! I'll be sure to post a few of the good ones when she gets done editing the ugly scars off my belly (stupid belly button ring). Since we got our pictures taken, I didn't do a belly pic this week, but surely will for week 30.
I hope all is well with everyone! Thanks for reading!
