Yay, we made it to 32 weeks!!! Here are the pics! Honestly, I can't even tell if it's growing anymore... Haha.
So on with the exciting news of this week... I was put on bedrest! FUN!! I'm allowed to get up to go to the bathroom, take one shower a day and luckily they are letting me feed/change Kylie. Otherwise I have to be laying down, that's right, I can't even sit up... This is supposed to help with all of the contractions I've been having and they are hoping that I will make it to 36 weeks. Hopefully I won't have anymore dilation or effacement and can get off of bedrest soon! For now it looks like I'll be having a couple appointments a week. I will be having non-stress tests to make sure the babies are doing well. They looked great this week and are tolerating the contractions well.

Here are the 30 week pictures!!! Don't mind the hair, it was a hat kind of day...
I had an appointment on Monday and have some news about the babies. They are big!!! haha I had a growth ultrasound 4 weeks ago and the twins were weighing 2 lbs and 2 lbs 1 oz. This time they weighed 3 lbs 9-11 oz and 3 lbs 9-10 oz!!! Together they gained more than 3 lbs in 4 weeks!!! haha At this point, they each should way almost 3 lbs... Their other measurements are a little ahead as well. So we've got some big babies on our hands! Apparently they have put our due date back to April 9th (what we were told at first ultrasound and they changed it to the 11th for no apparent reason...) Also, we aren't sure anymore which one is baby A and baby B. To better show how the babies are positioned, I have drawn some amazing pictures in paint!!
This is how the babies were at 26 weeks:
Baby A was head down and "dropped" and baby B was transverse on the top.
And this is how the twins are at 30 weeks:
The ultrasound tech's best guess is that baby A has slid all the way up the side and is now transverse on the top and baby B is now breech on the bottom. How this happened, I have no idea, and again this was her guess. She kept saying that she had no idea which one was A and B....
Anyways, that was the excitement of my 30 week appointment! It was so fun to watch them on the ultrasound. Their heads are so close now that they actually head butted each other a few times while we were watching!
