The Third Trimest Snuck up on Me!

I guess with Halloween a week away it makes sense that, I got a little boo, or spook.   We have made it to the 3rd trimester!!   This is great news, D&B should be holding their two bundles in about 3 months or less really, ha!    I do get a little sad as I do not want time to just speed past me and I know I will miss the experience of the journey 🙂   

Last Wednesday, I had my 25 week appt with Dr. Lloyd.  Both babies’ heartbeats were great and I gained 30 pounds!   I asked him about my running and he said he is fine with it, but maybe in 3 weeks I should go to lower impact exercise like treadmill, eliptical, swimming , bike or walking ect.   Well, I do not have any of that kind of stuff, but I might be able to borrow my sisters eliptical.   So I have 2 more weeks of running!   He also told me I will be seeing him every 2 weeks now and my belly measured 30 weeks 🙂   The nurse left to get my flu shot and Dr. Lloyd then yelled down the hall for her to find the biggest needle possible!   Ha, very funny doc…

Later that weekend I got a fantastic surprise.  B sent me a text and asked if I would call her.  I call her and she said “Would you like to come to my babyshower, being thrown by my mom and sister?”  ha, duh…of course I want to go!!   Oh my goodness it was so sweet to be asked to go.   This will be the first surro baby shower I have attended.   Plus, I get to take a trip to Utah!   I have not been there and I just know it is beautiful.   The shower is on Nov. 5th, so I will be leaving Nov. 4th-6th.   D will be out of town that weekend, so it will be a fun filled girl weekend!   In addition, to the babyshower, we will have a 3D/4D ultrasound, I get to see Park City, meet more of B’s friends and family and best of all she gets to spend the weekend with her little boy and girl 🙂 

Today, I had another ultrasound to check up on the twinkies.   My appt was set for 1:30 and unfortunately D&B could not make it this time.    Turns out they were running 2 hours behind!   I finally got back there and we started the ultrasound.  I layed there as she started looking around, and then I began to get a belly ache then that turned to nausia, then I began to get really hot and sweat! I asked her if I could sit up for a minute and she said yes please I was about to ask if you were ok. I said nope I might vomit, she then gave me a rag told to me wet it while I went to the rest room. She said I must have been laying on my back and babies moved in the wrong spot. I have heard of this happening but never ever happened to me. It sucked. I got up to go to the bathroom but was dizzy, it took me a minute but then I jumped over to lean over toilet but luckily no puke but certainly much needed releif of that horrible feeling. Oh and since I had to hole my bladder for over 3 hours yep I tinkled a little on the floor as I ran in the bathroom! I felt better and we started ultrasound again. Both babies moving around like crazy and look wonderful! They weigh about 2 pounds each Zero concerns…yipee!! At least I got free parking for the delay!   Check out the sweet pumpkins…
