Just a bad week

I'm sorry I haven't updated this. I know people have been checking but I just didn't want to update until I felt more confident in the information I had. 

We had a Dr.'s appointment on Thursday with Dr. Maberry. Everything looked great with mom and babies. Then on Monday (4 days later) we had an appointment with Dr. Mascorro and my cervix had almost completely thinned out (it's less than 1 cm). She admitted me to Hendrick right away for observation. On Tuesday, I had no changes. Dr. Mascorro had been in contact with the Dr.'s at Harris Methodist in Fort Worth and they decided to give me a fetal fiber nectin test on Wednesday. This is a fairly inconclusive test but the Dr.'s decided if it came back positive then I would be transported to Harris Methodist to await the arrival of the babies. It was positive. I am now 25 weeks and 5 days. We are trying to make it to 28 weeks to give the girls the girls the best chance possible to not have any long term issues. The good news is that every Dr. that has seen the girls tells us how big and strong they are. They have faith that even if they were born sooner that they would still do fairly well. 

Thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers.

Belly pics and housing update

Well, I'm getting pretty huge! These are pictures of me at 24 weeks. We are only 13 weeks away from the schedule induction. That just sounds CRAZY! This weekend I bought 2 cribs and 1 changing table. We still need 1 mattress but hey we're getting there. We found a house and are moving in on Saturday! I am so excited and can't wait to get the girls' room set-up. The house we chose is the one we went to look at during our lunch break. We fell in love with it in seconds. It's a 3 bedroom 1 bath with a great laundry room and a closed in patio that will be great for storage. We will have a front yard!! It's the little things.

Less than 100 days!

We are only 97 days away from our schedule induction! I cannot believe how fast everything is going. We saw the girls yesterday and they looked perfect! The Dr. commented on how much they were moving around and said they were going to be strong. I have been having this awful pain in my left ribs for the last few weeks so I asked Dr. Mascorro if there was a body part up there! Sure enough... Baby B's (which I'm pretty sure will be Ansley Grace) knee is lodged up there. As she showed us that we saw Ansley's little foot. It is the sweetest little foot... or so we thought. As we were admiring it she kicked Baby A (Kinley) right in the head! You could see little Kinley's head just shaking back and forth. Is it bad that I found this pretty funny? I better get prepared though,  it looks like we might have a little trouble maker on our hands. Well, we will go to the high risk doctor next Thursday and back to Mascorro the week after that. I can't to see the girls 3 times a month now! I definitely won't get sick of that but I might get sick of the Dr.'s office. I am also getting really excited for my first baby shower!!! I am blessed with the greatest friends and family and I know it is going to be great! 

Well, the only other big thing going on in our world right now is house hunting. We couldn't decide if we should move or not (and to be honest I'm still not convinced) but we are trying to find a bigger yet affordable rent house. We saw one yesterday that we like. The master is a little on the small side and we would have to buy a washer and dryer. Jason was sure this was the house until it dawned on him that there was no fireplace... because that should be a deal breaker. haha. We are going to look at another house today on our lunch break so we shall see. 

Now for the few people that read my blog and have their own.... POST!!! Some of you have been major slackers! Love you
