35 Weeks!

Hey we made it to 35 Weeks!!

I can't believe we've made it this far. After our little scare in the hospital at 31 weeks I really didn't think we would see this but here we are and I'm so thankful! My Dr. appointment this past Thursday showed no change from where I was in the hospital which is great. I'm still taking medication to keep my contractions at bay but that doesn't necessarily mean I can't go into labor. The meds are just a precaution. I will stop those this coming Friday though so we'll see how much it's actually helping.

Here are a couple of growth pictures for you. We don't have weeks 32 & 33 because those were taken in the hospital and are on my mom's camera...not to mention they are horrible so I don't think I would share them even if I did have them! :)
31 Weeks 
34 Weeks, home from the hospital now.

35 Weeks! My personal goal. This was taken at my church shower; my first big outing since being on bed rest.

So now we wait. We made it to our personal goal and another couple of weeks would be even better but I will be honest with you I am getting quite uncomfortable now and ready to meet these little ones and hold them in my arms rather than in my belly! Sleeping is difficult and almost every position isn't quite right so I wake up a lot at night but I suppose that's good training for when they are here.

This week is Thanksgiving week and I'm really looking forward to the festivities! I am not bound to bed anymore technically but I am still taking it very easy knowing that even more time is best for the babies. So since I had a big outing last night with my church shower now I will take it easy until Thursday. My sister and I plan to go shopping on Thanksgiving morning at Meijer. They have great deals on Thanksgiving morning and I would rather shop that day than wait until Black Friday...yuck! I don't like to shop that day even when I'm not pregnant so its definitely not happening this year. But I am willing to go to Meijer for a couple of hours before I sit down to our family Thanksgiving meal. Maybe this will help to induce labor and being that Thursday will be a day away from 36 Weeks and also Grandma Winell's birthday I would be ok with that. :) We'll see what happens!

I have a couple more Nursery pictures for you. We've actually painted now and Jared will be working on the trim this week and then we can start putting our furniture in there!! But for now, I don't have pictures of the painted room. So here are some pre-paint. :)

Closet & south wall with primer. 

South and west walls with primer. 

Closet inside with primer. 

West Wall with primer. 
 So that's it for now. I will try to get pics of the nursery with paint & trim up as soon as we finish the trim. :) Stay tuned!
