My dr.s appt today

Paul and I went to the dr. today while Ms. Hannah got to play with her grandma and grandpa. Everything went very well today. I did tell the dr. i was worried a bit now with what happened to Melody. He said not to worry and just be as aware of different pains as you can be. He said if i feel like something is wrong call and come in asap. He said he'd rather me come in and there be nothing wrong than to wait it out and find there is something wrong. He did give me a booklet on perterm labor to read since i really didn't go through a real labor last time since i was induced 4 days late.

Dr. P also did an ultra sound today. The girls are doing great...and Dr. P laughed a bit because they are both breech and he wasn't able to figure out who was who as he normally could. He showed me one shot of four feet going crazy moving around. He said he really couldn't tell which one was lower and which one was higher. It was really funny. He said there's a 50/50 chance they will both turn back around but you never really know. Once they get a bit bigger the chances are slimmer that they will flip back correctly. I'm not really worried about them being breech and have a c-section...i'd probably prefer that over a regular birth anyway.

That's all on the babies for to the house.
The house is coming along GREAT! We are really happy with our decision to use Israel so far. He has come through and really wants to make us happy. He comes to us with every decision that needs to be made and i'm just really happy with him overall. So far they've done the following:
1. torn out the back wall and fireplace and now they are framing the new windows
2. replaced the floor with the slate
3. added a door from the bedroom outside
4. we've had the shrubbery and trees torn out to clean up for the new fence
5. torn out the cabinet doors for the Big T.V. to fit in the cabinet
6. torn out the book cases from the dining room wall to be replaced in pauls office.

I think that's it for now...but the house is already looking really really nice. Talking about adding some light to the house. It's SOO much brighter now. We are really going to enjoy all the light.

We have a MOM meeting tomorrow. I'm really excited because Melody is coming with me. It's always nice to hang out with a whole bunch of women who have been through what your about to go through. I will update more later after the meeting.

My Friend Melody

I'm without a twin pregnancy partner now. My friend and pregnancy buddy Melody had her babies on Friday Morning. She was 6 weeks ahead of me and wasn't due till Dec 6th or around there. She went into preterm labor and didn't know. She said she thought that the babies were just moving a bunch. They had a c-section on Friday morning because it was too late to stop the preterm labor and both babies were breech. The girls weighted 1.10lbs and 1.12 lbs. There names are Kaitlyn and Sidney(i totally wanted to name one of ours Sidney but paul didn't want to). Anyway Melody is taking it very very well considering. I have talked to her a couple of times and she is much calmer than me! The babies also had surgery two nights ago because they had heart murmurs and they didn't close and so the dr. decided to go in and close them. I have not talked to melody since this happened because i'm very nervous and don't want to bother her when she has so much going on. I want her to call me when she's ready to talk. She did tell me we'll have to start doing our weekly lunches at the hospital...which will be fine for me. I just have to make sure it's on a day when Hannah is in mothers day out. I really want to support her but i don't want to upset or overwhelm the same time i don't want her to think i don't care about her.

Anyway that's all for now...i knows it's really sad news but on the bright side...The babies are going to be ok and all we can do is sit, wait and pray for Melodys family.
