No email, no internet, no pictures, no blogging
so instead of blogging this week we did.... not much else! ha!
I had my 14 week appointment on Monday. Yeah! We got to see the babies... boy have they grown already. I mean it's obvious by the vast expansion of my belly but it was really cool to see it on the u/s. Last time you could see both babies at the same time but this time it was only one at a time with a little leg or arm from the other one in the picture. Paul was there and tried to take a video with our little camera but it didn't show much because she was moving it around too fast checking things. I didn't say anything before but at our first appointment my OB was very concerned that our twins might be monoamniotic which is when they share the same sac and placenta. It is very risky. There are high chances of the babies becoming entangled in each others cords since they aren't separated... which leads to malnutrition and possibly fatal. After I left dr. when she told me that I just prayed and prayed and I knew they were fine. Well... sure enough... as soon as she turned the u/s on she saw the membrane. Plain as day... right there... seprated just like they should be. Thank GOD! So everything looks great... they're growing just like they should. We're still considered high risk because they are identical and share a placenta. Plus my past history of preterm labor. So I'll be going to a peri and my ob every other week. I'll have 15 u/s by the time we're done. How fun! I can't wait to see them every other week and I think it will make the pregnancy go by really fast. Okay... enough about that...
The boys have spring break next week and we're heading south to visit family so I've been trying to get everything ready around here. For the sake of my sanity I sure hope Paul finds time to get the jammed dvd out of the dvd player in the van before we go... because 9 hours without a movie might drive me to insanity! Ha!
Oh and how could I forget.... I was just going out my normal daily laundry... washing... drying... but when I opened the dryer I noticed large globs of GREEN, BLUE, RED, ORANGE CRAYON all over my dryer! Oh and don't forget all over 50+ pieces of clothing that was in the dryer with the crayons. Ozzie's favorite Oink baby outfit, my fav pants and tank, lots of boys gap & polo shirts and pants. OY OY OY! The internet was down, I had no idea what to do to clean it off. So... I called my oh so WONDERFUL friend Shelly and she came right over to help. We scrubbed the dryer with goof-off (that stuff is TOXIC) and it did clean off. There is still a faded sheen of color on the drum but it's hardly noticable. And the HUGE glob in the corner is most of the way gone. There are little marks here and there and if I get the energy I may go back and clean it off more. But at least it's not ruined. The clothes however are another story... about half have come clean and the other half... including Ozzie's Oink shirt.... are not looking so hopeful. I've been working on them since Wednesday morning. There sitting on the counter soaking with 'goo-gone' for the 3rd time. We'll see! It's just clothes right!
I went to a jewlery party Tuesday night... it was wonderful... I didn't buy a thing but found a ring I was in love with... just didn't love the price of $84 for a sterling silver ring.
Thursday we went to mom's group and I met Kate for the first time. It's so fun to meet people you met on blog land first... even though she's a long time friend of Shelly's so I knew we would most likely meet one day.
My email is finally working after 2 weeks of problems. Getting to my pictures that are on a different computer is another problem though. So... no picture to share yet. I have lots of Easter pictures oh and a picture of the wonderful wax glob in my dryer... you know... life!
oh & I'm getting a cold... blah! I feel okay other than my nose. I ran out of Calcium lactate earlier this week and what do you know... now i'm getting sick. I just hope I feel better before we leave and that the kids don't get sick. No! No! No!
Sorry for the book! If you read this far YEAH FOR YOU! You may not hear much from me for the next week or so as we'll be out of town. I'm SO excited to get my hubby away from work. Yeah!!! The boys are pumped about tractors and dirt and cousins and warm weather. I'm sure i'll have lots of pictures to share when we get back.
