28 Week Check Up & Testing

Just a pregnancy update. I had my glucose tests today at my 28 week check up. Nothing like fasting when you're pregnant. I was eating a piece of pie last night at 11:45pm, I had to get it in before midnight. You would've thought that they were asking me to fast for a week instead of just overnight.

The appointment went great, and I don't show any signs of a problem. I am starting to have some swelling & my contractions have definitely started to ramp up over the past week or so. The swelling is not really a shock since I'm almost 30 weeks, and I had preeclampsia with my last set of twins. Hopefully it won't develop like it did last time. If so, it's ok, I just want these little girls to be here & healthy, that's all I care about. And as for the contractions, feet up & take it easy......which shouldn't be that hard with 3 little girls to run after :). I am thankful that we have made it this far without any major problems, and that the babies seem to be growing like they should. I am so excited to see their little faces!! Our Dr. seems optimistic that we will make it close to term if not all the way (36/37 weeks for twins), which is nice to hear. And for those of you who know our Dr., he's still handing out A+'s. :)

I still can't believe that God is giving us 2 more little girls. I feel so unworthy. Even though it will be stressful & crazy at times, I am just so thankful that He has chosen us for this journey. I don't know, it's just so hard to wrap my mind around God's Grace, it is truly amazing.
