It's all downhill from here!

Now that I'm halfway through I feel like things are going to be moving very fast now. In fact I'm a little nervous about getting everything done before the doctors decide to put me on me on bed rest. They have said I will need to cut back my hours at work by 24-26 weeks but I'm nervous that by 30 weeks I'll be on full bed rest...that's leaves only 10 more weekends for me to shop, fix the nursery, have baby showers, and do all the things I need to do!!!! I'm of course hoping for the best and crossing my fingers that I don't have to go on bed rest at all, but I also feel like I need to prepare for the worst case scenario too.

The babies are moving a lot now and I can finally distinguish their little flutters from stomach digestion! I haven't had any kicks strong enough for Andie to feel yet which is really disappointing to him, but any day now I know it's coming. Other than occassional sciatic pain I'm feeling great! I feel really blessed that I've made it this far through the pregnancy without feeling uncomfortable, and with no major complications.

I don't have any doctor appointments this week but next Friday I see the perinatologist so he can do echocardiograms on the babies- isn't it amazing that they can look at their hearts while they're still in there!! That will be really cool to see. Being a "high risk" pregnancy isn't all bad...I get to have all these cool things done that let me see how my little ones are developing every step of the way. I feel really fortunate to have such a unique experience in that regard.

I've been busy narrowing down fabrics for the nursery and I think I've almost made a final decision. My next task is to update and complete my online registries- there's soooo much to shop for!

We've narrowed down our list of possible names and I feel confident we will make a decision soon...hold out a little longer people!!
