counting carbs

Sorry I did not update yesterday...I was exhausted when we FINALLY got home.  I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and met with a nutritionist.  It really is not a big deal...just a little inconvenient.  I am counting carbs and checking my sugar 4 times a day.  So far, my sugar has been great!! Most importantly, the babies are doing well.  They are BIG (which is a side effect of the GD).  Luke weighs 4 lbs. 11 oz. and Della Rose weighs 3 lbs. 15 oz.  I am no longer on bedrest...yay!!  My doctor said to just take it easy and listen to my body.  I just wanted to post a quick update....wishing you a wonderful weekend!! Eek...I will be entering the last year of my 20s on Sunday.....I'm getting old!!

30 weeks

Well, I am on bedrest.  I had been noticing some "different" pains over the past two weeks. As they started happening more often I decided to call my nurse. She told me it sounded like contractions and to start timing them.  I did and they were coming every 15 off to the hospital we went (Monday). It caught me off guard because I was expecting it to be like the movies where you are doubled over in pain doing those breathing exercises.  Not the case! When we got to the hospital they hooked me up to the monitor and sure enough they were contractions.  Both babies were doing great...they were moving around like crazy and their heart tones looked great.  So, they gave me a shot to stop the contractions and ordered bedrest until I see my regular doctor tomorrow (Thursday).  So, I am hoping that he will lift some of these restrictions tomorrow. Below are more belly pictures and some pictures from my wonderful shower this past weekend.  I guess the babies saw all the gifts they got and wanted to try to come and join us. I don't think so!!!  

29 weeks

I will update again after my appointment tomorrow. :-)
