We had our weekly appt today, and everything is fantastic! Luckily, we got Colleen as our sono tech and she measured the babies! Both babies are about 1 lb 8 oz each and 12 inches head to toe and are right on schedule! Their fluids are great and my cervix is continue to hold strong. So well in fact that Dr. G was quite impressed and told me that he doesn't think he needs to see me every week and that we can go back to every two weeks! Unfortunately, the babies did not want to cooperate today and were both facing my back - so sadly no face or profile shots today :( although it wasn't without a lot of trying by Colleen :( Hopefully next time. It does appear that a foot has been jabbing me in my upper rib region, but I guess it could be worse cause apparently the other foot is busy kicking sister in the face! Poor baby girl! They have sure been active lately, doing summersaults and kicking like crazy! Jason is finally able to feel them kick now that they are packing quite the punch! Overall, Dr. G said everything is perfect and great - and it never gets old hearing those words - I feel so very blessed and grateful!
The nursery is really coming along... our bedding finally came in!!! And we decided to get an upholstered glider instead - so we sold the old one. We also bought some blackout curtains that seem to work as an accent wall since the windows cover almost the entire wall. We still need to get the dresser, which we may get this weekend, and the cute brown and cream zebra rug I found on overstock.com, and Jason is going to install some crown molding (with the help of his dad) - and then it will pretty much be complete (with the exception of a few wall decoration items)! Lucy seems to really like the nursery - I often find her just chillin in there - it's so cute!
In other news... I have definitely been packin on the pounds lately! It was such a slow start, but the last few weeks I have gained a lot - I am up to 20 pounds now! But luckily (for now) it is all boobs and belly! The last few weeks have taken a toll on my right ribs - there just doesn't seem to be enough space in there for babies and organs! My liver and diaphragm have been shoved into my ribs causing them to be pushed out of place and causing searing pain from my back all the way around to the front. Fortunately, I happen to know an awesome chiropractor who has experience working with pregnant women. I went to see her today so that she could hopefully help free up some space and relieve this constant pain. She said it may take two visits to really feel any effects, and apparently I fall into that category - cause it's still there :( But, I go in again on Thursday and am praying that it works! I don't want anyone to think I am complaining, b/c there is absolutely nothing that I can complain about in this pregnancy! The pool really seems to help, so if I have to spend everyday in the pool between now and D day - I think I can handle that - it'll be tough but I think I can do it :)
Here are some picks of the nursery and belly pics (24 weeks 4 days) - hope to have more baby pics in 2 weeks, if they cooperate!
