Random Cuteness and my first L&D visit

I'll start with the L&D visit. Last Thursday I was working from home and wasn't feeling great. I was very crampy and achy in my lower abdomen. So remembering my other twin pregnancy, I dutifully layed down on my left side, and started downing my water. Unfortunately, about an hour went by, and I didn't feel much better. So I continued to lay, and I continued to drink. Another hour goes by, nothing's changed. So I decided to call my OB's office. I talked with a nurse there, and she consulted with one of the docs, and they agreed that I should take a trip to Labor and Delivery to get checked out.

Luckily my sister was on her way over to help with the twins that night, so she picked me up and off to the hospital we went. We basically just spent a bunch of time in the PET unti (pre-natal evaluation and testing). They checked on the babes, who were very active and the heartbeats were perfect. They then put a contraction monitor on me and told me they would monitor for contractions for a half hour. One half hour later, the doc came in. Not a single contraction. Cervix long and closed. Bottom line, the doc thinks the pain was round ligament pain. I'll take it! We would LOVE for these little bubs to spend another 10 weeks in my belly!

What else? My sister's shower is this weekend ... it's not a surprise (obviously, since I'm mentioning it here, and she reads this!) But I'm very excited and can't wait for it! She deserves her very special day in the spotlight!

And now I just want to share some super cute pics of the kids that I have taken over the last few weeks. These first few pics were from this play zone area by our house. DH and I took the kids there one weekend morning ... it was really fun! Lots of different play areas with slides and climby things ... and then different rooms to pretend-play different stuff, like a Vets office, a dress up area, a supermarket, a post office, etc. Then we had lunch there... the kids LOVED it!

Here is Boots going down the slide

And lastly, a picture I like to call "My Little Diva". Yes, she is wearing her sunglasses inside, while relaxing in her chair, getting a pedicure from Mommy. She loves her "painted pink toes" as she calls them.

Love the pictures! I think that "My Little Diva" tops it off in the cuteness department :-)

Ugh - too bad you had to go to L&D, but it sounds like all's well! You are a superstar, lady. Thanks for the cute pics!!! I'm still getting used to Moop's hair!

I'm glad everything was OK and there were no signs of preterm labor! Those symptoms you desribed probably got you pretty scared and it was wise to go to L&D to make sure you were in the clear.

Cute pictures of Moops & Boots! Love the pedicure picture of Boots! Too adorable....

Glad to hear it wasn't PTL. Those pics are so cute. Oh and I would love to continue to read the email or you can send me a message of FB.

I just happened across your blog. How wonderful for you to give such a generous gift to your sister! We're just now starting our journey of using a gestational carrier - about 4 weeks til implantation.

You guys will be in my thoughts and prayers!
