Yay! 5 wks have passed. I have a doc appt in a couple of days. I'm so excited because I haven't got to see my boys on ultrasound in 3 weeks. I'm hoping I'll still get good news from the doc. I've been kind of bad lately.... Since my last appt (3 wks ago) when I got good news. I have been getting up probably more than I should. For example, I'm a planner (with some things) and I've been wanting to get my hospital bag ready in case the boys come to early. So, i had my mom take me to kohls so I could get a robe for when I'm in the hospital. BUT... I did not walk. She pushed me in a wheelchair. So, I hope im still doing good when I go to the doc. My biggest fear (besides them coming to early) is that he will put me on hospital bed rest. I don't want to stay in the hospital. Staying one night when I had my cerclage was bad enough. I'd rather be at home. So, we will see how the appt goes. I pray the boys are still healthy and growing... I feel like they are because my belly is HUGE! :-) I feel like thy are already developing personality. The baby on my left side they call baby A. We planned on calling baby A, Wyatt. Anyways, he is so active. Kicking and moving all the time. Baby B (on the right) is a little more reserved. He isn't as active. He seems more laid back and chilled. Lol. They are identical twins but they might have different personalities. We shall see. I can't wait til they get here! I want to see what features thy got from me and what they got from their dad. Zach and I have very different features so I'm curious. We don't want them coming to soon though! :-) I took maternity pics last Thursday. I got to see a sneak peek on Facebook. They turned out really good. I'm glad I got to take them. I also got their baby books in and have filled them out already. :-)

Yesterday was the day I have been on bed rest for a whole month. The past month actually went by faster than I thought it would. I'm hoping the next month does the same. I think it will because I have my baby showers coming up and I'm really looking forward to that. I don't have much to say but I did want to jot down some of the cravings I've had since I've been pregnant. Cravings: -Cantaloupe -Bagels w/cream cheese -Orange juice -Popsicles -Yogurt with strawberries and blue berries in it -Watermelon. Yum! Just writing about them makes me want them now. :-) Ok thanks for reading my blog! Have a great day.

Another week goes by and I'm so grateful for that. I am now 25 weeks. Being on bed rest is really getting to me now. The first couple of weeks weren't bad, but now I'm starting to get bored and frustrated at times. Some days are better than others. I've missed my independence. Last Sunday, Zach and another brother from our church were able to administer the sacrament to me since I haven't been able to go to church. While Zach is at church I'll watch the devotional on the BYU channel or I'll read the RS lesson from the manuel. I had another doc appointment with my high risk doc this past Wednesday and everything looked good. I love getting good news when I go to the doc appointments. Wednesday is also the day my mom comes over. We have been needing new appliances so we bought a new Dyson ball vacuum, and new washer and dryer. They are obviously for her (since I can't do chores right now) to help make cleaning easier. I think she likes them :-) I have some great friends and family. Saturday, my friend Krystle and my sis-in-law Tiffany came over to help get the boys' room ready. They did a coat of primer so we can get ready to paint it. Zach had to go do work at the deer lease so these wonderful girls volunteered to help. I'm so grateful for them. Well, even though I feel helpless and not in control, I know that what I'm doing is best for these boys. I just have to keep telling myself that. We've waited so long to have children and I'll do what it takes to see that they are healthy. KEEP COOKIN' BABIES! :-) P.s. if you know how to upload pics from the iPad to the blog, let me know. I can't do it the same as on a regular computer.
