Sorry Emma Grace I wish I could have interacted with you more on your big day, but mommy was not able to get out of this chair for the hour she was able to attend. I love you my baby girl and I will make it up to you next year (and when these babies get here).

My week 31 and a half doctor’s appointment was on Tuesday. Babies both look great. Addison Brooke is weighing in at 3 lb. and 11 oz. and Preston Anthony weighed in at 3 lb. and 10 oz. Bedrest is still suiting the babies well for I have not progressed any further over the past 5 weeks. Both babies are both still transverse (laying sideways across my belly), not really optimal for delivery. So the doctor said that she would be scheduling my c-section for week 38, at my appointment next week. At least that will give us a for sure date to look at, but I have decided that if I make it to 34 weeks I am going to start walking and become active because I am ready for the babies to turn upside down and get out!
Tomorrow I will be 32 weeks pregnant, and I just thank God everyday that we made it this long. We were sure that at week 25 when we were having contractions and starting to dilate that we would not get to this point, but God is very good and we know that he is watching after our babies.
On Tuesday I also saw my urologist who is helping control my kidney stones, because I was in so much pain from the stint that they put in two and a half weeks ago. Evidently it had come out of position and it had to be removed. I am in a lot less pain now and just praying to God everyday that they pain from the kidney stones stays away until I deliver these babies. I am not sure I can deal with much more!
My mom had been here for the past three weeks helping us out and I have been so thankful that she would drop what is going on in her life and come help us out. I don’t know what we would do without all the extra support that everyone has shown to us lately. Thank you all friends and family for everything that you have done to help us through this crazy time in our lives!
Happy 3rd Birthday my baby girl. I can't believe that three years ago today you were born, and you have grown up to be such an strong willed independent little girl. Your daddy and I love you very much - even thought you can be a real pain sometimes!

This weekend some of my wonderful girl friends (Mary, Andrea, Jennifer, and Ginger) throw me a shower at church and we had the best time. I am so thankful that I was able to attend! I have had a rough last two weeks of pregnancy. Over the past two weeks week have spent 6 nights in the hospital trying to get Kidney Stones under control. They are so large that I am not going to be able to pass them, and I had to have surgery to put a stint in place until after the babies get here – at that time I will have to have another surgery to get the stint out and break up the kidney stones. I never thought that a twin pregnancy would be so hard on my body. This message is for my notes, and so my kids will know what I went through to get them here and how much I love them!
Now on to my shower! We have diapers and wipes and clothes for these babies for the next 6 months. Thank you everyone who made my day so special. If I look drugged in some of these pictures it's because I was!
Side note - I love this room that we are in at the church. It is called the Parlor. This is where me and my bridesmaids got ready for my wedding, and is where I would nursed my babies when I would come see them at lunch time (while they were at playschool), this is where I had a bridal shower, this is where my friends and I converse when we have things going on at the church. I just love this room - it holds the most special memories.

This badge says "Mother of the year" I thought it was very sweet. I don't know that I deserve it for the year, but I will take it for June and July. This bedrest and kidney stones have to account for something.
