Catching Up

I know, I know, I've been a terrible blogger.  What can I say, work has really gotten into the way of my blogging life. :-D

I had my monthly OB appointment this week, on Wednesday 8/11, which also happened to be Eric and my 3 year wedding anniversary.  I can't believe its been 3 years, but even more so, I can't believe we have been together for the better part of a decade.  Time flies... ANYWAY, the appointment was good.  I am measuring a month a head of schedule, compared to a singleton pregnancy, and will be likely put on some restrictions in the next 3 weeks (aka, when September begins).  One of those restrictions will definitely be travel...

I have to admit, while I did expect this, it didn't stop me from being bummed out.  For starters, my MIL was planning a shower for Eric and me in Blacksburg on 9/12, since we were planning to be there for the football game.  I asked the doctor if it would be OK for me to at least go to that, and he definitely wanted to say no, but he said we would see how the next ultrasound looked.  I know missing a shower isn't the end of the world, but its still sad.  In addition, a close family friend of ours was going to plan a luncheon for my sister (who is also preggo, due in October) and I on 9/19, but it looks like that will turn into a "Welcome Babies" party later this year.  The biggest hit to me was that I would likely be missing most, if not all, of this season's Hokie games.  I know, I know, what's the big deal, right?  Except VT football season is my favorite part of the year.  I didn't expect to go to all of the games, but to find out that I likely will miss them all was sad, especially considering our season tickets showed up last week too.  But oh well, I'll get over it!!

The doctor also said they are about 95% sure I'll be getting a c-section.  Right now, both babies are breech, and I still have marginal placenta previa... both of these things could correct themselves, but they seemed to think its unlikely both will.  So we are scheduling the c-section for the first week of November, unless they come early... I hope I can bake them that long!

I'm really excited about all the deliveries I have gotten this week!  First, my uncle ordered and shipped the two high chairs we registered for.  I didn't expect anyone to buy these, but I was so excited for them to come!  Then yesterday, our crib mattresses came, and today, the bedding should be arriving (yes, I actually broke down and picked out some bedding, shocking, I know!!).  We decided to go with the Kasey bedding from Pottery Barn because it was simple with all the colors we liked.  This weekend, Eric and our close friend Brad are going to work on switching the furniture in our guestroom with the nursery so that the nursery has more space, and then I can start setting everything up!  I cannot wait!!!

So that is pretty much everything going on with me.  As it goes now, even though I am 26 weeks, I have about 2.5 months left in this pregnancy if they make it to my scheduled c-section (fingers crossed).  I can't believe how fast it is going!!  I'll leave you all with this week's belly shot, which is actually from Tuesday at 25w2d, but like I said, I'm a bit behind!  Have a good weekend everyone!!


  1. I totally understand what you mean about missing the football games. That is my favorite time of the year too! We are LSU and University of Iowa fans in my house. First team because we live in Louisiana and second team because that is my alma mater. Ironic enough, the first LSU I ever went to was in 2007 against Virginia Tech :-) But hang in there and keep reminding yourself that next football season, you will have two additional VT fans in your house!!

  2. how exciting!! and the not traveling may be a bummer but that just means you will have to have visitors!! xoxo

  3. You look great! I love the bedding you chose. Isn't it so exciting to come home to boxes on your door step?? I hope you can wait till Nov for D-day...our babies could share a birthday!!

  4. Missing VT IS a travesty! I understand! I missed games the year before because of U/S and stimming.

    Check with your dr, sometimes they do allow you to travel for baby showers and stuff like that. Espeically if you will be near a major hospital. I was allowed to travel to go to my baby shower in NC (near Raleigh) and to go to the OBX and I was 32-33 weeks. Since he said I was near Duke hospital and the OBX I could be back in less than 2 hrs. Your dr might make an exception!

    Getting baby goods is exciting! YAY!

    Oh, my EDD was August 25 and they were born (with me being induced and alot of persuasion on my part) on August 8th. So don't count on being too early!
