Getting so close!

Since my last update in the hospital I am back at home on bed rest. It is so much nicer to be at home laying in bed than being at the hospital laying in bed. The fluid around the girls is still low but as the doctors put it, it is at the low end of fine so I usually have 3 doctor appointments a week but I will take it to make sure that the girls are safe and sound.

Everyone has been asking me how long they think I will go so I asked my doctor and she said that she is surprised I have made it this long. (Thanks for all the prayers!!) But she said she is shooting for 34 weeks which is in 3 weeks!!! She said the girls should be fine and not have to spend a long time in the NICU. They already got the steroid shot for their lungs so hopefully that helps as well. I feel confident that they will be just fine. They are tough little girls already I can tell!

Other than all the stuff going on with the pregnancy our life is pretty boring. Kemper is staying busy with work and we are trying to speed up the process on the girls room and get everything done! I will continue to try and keep you all updated on whats going on!!

Here are some pics of the every growing belly!

Here is the belly at almost 30 weeks. Still in the hospital as you can tell with my IV. 

Here is the belly at 31 weeks.

I only blog when I am at the hospital

Yes it is true I am back at the hospital.I thought yesterday was going to be a normal day but I was wrong. I had a doctor appointment and I thought it would be fine since everything was fine last week when I went.

I went back and had the ultrasound, he measured the girls and they looked so cute and were just moving around like crazy but then I saw that the doctor kept measuring the same thing ( I had no clue what it was obviously) He then told me that the amniotic fluid was low. Baby A's fluid is between 3-4 cm and Baby B's was 2cm. It is suppose to be between 8-10. YIKES! So they obviously sent me straight to the hospital. They think that my chronic high blood pressure due to my kidney disease is what is causing this. I am on so much blood pressure medicine it is unreal but it does not seem to help. So with all that being said we had a scary moment last night, they tested me for preeclampsia and said if it came back positive they were going to deliver the babies. Talk about panic attack these babies are too little to come now!! So thankfully the test came back negative so the girls did not have to be delivered yet!! So as of right now I am staying here to be monitored they are checking the fluids tomorrow and I could get to go home or this could be my home away from home til our little girls arrive.
Kemper has been so great through all of this! He is so supportive and so calm which is a good thing! Thank you thank you for everyone for your thoughts and prayers! These little girls need it!
