30 weeks

 I had to take these a little differently today because Hubs is gone for the morning and I wanted to get them posted before the day got away from me.
30 weeks pregnant.
My fundal height is measuring in at 40 cm. (wowzers!) My doctor laughed when she measured me and I said, "Wait! Wait! Let me guess..." and I was right. 40!
I'm still feeling good for the most part.  
I am usually ravenous in the mornings and not particularly interested in food at night.
I feel stuffed pretty much 90% of my day.
I'm officially several weeks in my third trimester and officially on house rest.  It has been good to stay home more and I actually love that I can nap and lay around whenever I am tired.  I'm usually winded after climbing the stairs and usually take naps after running an errand or two.
I've been on a mission to get all my to-do list from the past year and a half of living in our townhome done the last week or so.  We bought curtains for our living room, set up the nursery, bought a kitchen cabinet (farmhouse style) and got a new couch.
Whew! Hubs has been working hard.  He's done 100% of the projects mentioned above and has never complained about my wild ideas, since I can't lift or do a lot of things at this stage, he has steadily loved me through all of these projects.  Thanks Hubs!

 The latest with pregnancy is that we will receive two more ultrasounds (4 weeks apart).
The next ultrasound is scheduled in two weeks to measure their growth and make sure they are on track.  We don't want one of them hogging all the food and growing a lot faster than her sister.
The second ultrasound will be at 36 weeks and that one will be more for "final" positioning of the babies.  If both girls are breech (which they were this last appt) then we will schedule a c-section for 39 weeks.  If Baby A (closest baby to the "exit") is head down they'll wait for me to go into labor on my own.
We are praying for not just one but both babies to go head down so that I can labor on my own but I keep reminding myself, "not my will, but Yours be done" and I know that God is writing the story of these little girls' lives and I want to keep my heart and mind open to His plan for them.
I know God doesn't "mind" me praying my own heart and desires while I can though.
So I am praying but understand that it may happen differently than we are imagining.
Please pray with us!

You are already momma-supremo! I love your dedication to God's will and what is best for your baby girls. Give them lots of pats from Gramma. They're just enjoying that snuggle time together before the serious delivery part begins! We are praying too! XOXOX
