This week I am getting very anxious and extremely uncomfortable. I can not wait to meet the girls but I do want them to be safe when they get here. I went this morning to the doctor and he said that I was 80% effaced, 2 c dilated and that Adelaide's head is negative 3 station. Unfortunately this does not tell me when they will make their arrival. The Doctor thinks that they are weighing anywhere from 5 to 5 1/2 pounds .My prayer is this week and that God will make sure they are healthy to come. My doctor said that he w ill induce me once I get to 38 weeks. I just can't imagine going that long. Since Adelaide is head down we will attempt to deliver them vaginally. Grace is breached in her own little corner with not very much room. My sleep has been terrible, I get up 3 to 6 times every night. This last week I have been having some braxton hicks but not anything that could turn anything into labor. Although last Friday I did have contractions that were pretty intense from about 6 pm to 3am and anywhere from 7 to 8 minutes apart, they eventually died down. Kris and I just knew that we were going to go in but we didn't.
We had our sonogram in the morning with a Perintoligst in Austin. When they did leg shots we turned our head and then had to wait all day long to find out what we were having. I had the sonographer call the bakery that I had made pre arrangements with to let them know what color to make in icing inside. We wanted to find out with our family so Kris's parents, my parents, my sister and niece Avery all came over to cut into the cakes with us. When I showed up to my house one of my best friends, Brittany, even drove down from Dallas to surprise me. We also got Kris's sister and our nephew Bradley on skype since they live so far away. We cut into Baby A cake first and we found pink icing, the emotions kicked in and I was in tears. Then we cut into Baby B cake and we saw more pink. I could not be more thrilled.
That morning at the songram they went over all of both babies organs and took all their measurements. They both looked healthy, praise the Lord!!!! I was so nervous before the appointment. For some reason I worry about the worst.
Is our one that appears to be laid back.She is on the bottom. I feel her move around but not as quite as much as baby B. She was measuring 19 weeks and 3 days and weighs 10oz. I already love her so much!
My first pregnancy test I took on my own after finding out my blood test results. I had to see a positive test after years of negative ones.
Their very first picture, three days after conception!
