30 Weeks!

As of today I am 30 weeks and 5 days along, praise God! 30 weeks is a huge milestone in development for twins; my next goal is reaching the 34 week mark, and after that, 36. I can't believe we are so close to meeting our little ones. We are busting with excitement! As I type this someone on the right side of my belly is moving and grooving-my shirt is bouncing up and down! The last couple of weeks their movements have definitely strengthened. I love each and every kick and punch, even when they keep me awake. I just see it as a glimpse of our future--lots and lots of time together in the middle of the night!

My last ultrasound was at 28 weeks. Baby girl weighed 2 pounds 6 ounces, and baby boy was 2 pounds 4 ounces. The Dr. said they were right where they should be for weight at that stage. I am praying that they get to at least 6 or 7 pounds. If we make it to 36 or 37 weeks, a hearty birthweight is possible!

My body is definitely starting to feel the effects of carrying two babies. Although I am 30 weeks along, at my appointment yesterday I measured 39 weeks! No wonder I'm feeling some aches and pains! (Belly pics to come--my computer has not cooperated with downloading pics for the last couple of weeks!) Bending over is nearly impossible, and Adam has to tie my shoes for me, put lotion on my legs and pick up things I drop (which happens often because I am even more clumsy than usual). Sweet sweet man. I may feel physically awful most of the time, but I thank God for every stretch, ache and cramp, because that means these two are growing. Come on kids! Make your momma miserable and get as big as you can!

EXCITING NEWS-- my twin friend Corrie is having her two baby boys tomorrow!! Please pray for Corrie this week as they welcome these precious boys and their family of 3 instantly becomes a family of 5!

More updates to come as I coax my computer into liking blogger and downloading pics...

Got the exciting text from Corrie's camp this morning about the babies! I cried! I'm just so excited and twins makes it doubly so!

I'm so glad you posted and updated us about your progress. I don't know exactly why, but the Lord has really put you on my heart lately and you've popped into my mind several times the last few weeks.

Also, on the pictures for Blogger...don't know if you have updated to newer version, but if you haven't it will go so much faster when you're adding pics! It's easy, too. Just go to Settings and then scroll down to Global Settings. Choose updated version (or something like that), and then Save. It will update automatically and you're ready to start adding pictures!
