April showers bring May flowers

So my April appointment come around and we go.  Everything is fine :)

I joined the Plano Area Moms of Multiples that my friend Heather Cox told me about.  My first meeting was in March.  They have separate classes and I am in the Expectant mothers class.  There was a lady that was from Lone Star Baby in Frisco, TX.  She brought a double stroller, breast pump, mattress, and a few other things.  Then everyone came together for a big meeting.  They have alot of members! Mother's of Twins, Triplets, Quads, and Singletons too!  The speaker was a Police officer and he talked about safety around the house. 
April 16th was the big semi annual sale for PAMOM!  Of course I was there!  I got the babies mattresses, some clothes, shoes, a single stroller, a few bottles and the breastfeeding pillow! 
We also found the stroller and car seats on craigslist!

April 26th was me and hubby's 3 year wedding Anniversary!  So we went on a little trip to Arkansas for a few days!  We stopped at the Cliff house Inn and had lunch and man it was good! We visited Daniel's old neighbors from when he was a kid.  We went to Eureka Springs to walk around and enjoy all the little shops.  We found a really good Hot Dog place too!  We had fun in Branson, Mo and we went to Silver Dollar City!  Boy was that a lot of walking! We saw a bunch of shows and had some yummy food and ice cream! 

 We went through this town called Flippin!  We had to stop and take a pic!  Haha

Me and my mom went to lunch with my Aunt Carolyn, we have not seen her in forever!  We celebrated my birthday, my mom's birthday and Mother's day all in one day!  We found some stuff for the church baby shower too!!  We found some cute outfits too!

May 7th is my birthday and we had a family dinner at my parents house.  My mom make her famous Enchiladas, guacamole and cheese dip!  I got some money, shirts, a picture frame for my babies, and some purple knives for my kitchen.  My friend Amber got me a cute shirt that says Mommy to be, candles, and a friend sign :) thanks Amber!

Then I had a sonogram appointment Monday May 9th.  Hubby had to work so my mom went with me.  The babies are doing awesome! Baby A - boy is 15 oz and Baby B -girl is 1 pound 2 ounces. 
After he checked the babies he checked my cervix.  The Dr. noticed that my cervix wasn't completely closed.  It scared me immediately!  He explained to us that I could have a procedure done that would fix it.  I was scared that it would effect the babies, but they were doing fine he said!   He told me I would have to be on bed rest until they were born. Very emotional appointment for me!  So they called my Ob Dr. and she was in surgery so me and mom waited around to hear from her.  They told me to go home and relax and I would be admitted to the hospital later that afternoon.  So me and mom went home and had lunch then went to my apartment and packed a bag for the hospital.  Later that afternoon my OB Dr. called me and told me to go to the hospital.  So mom drove me and I was admitted like at 4 that afternoon.  First thing they did was put that stupid IV in my hand....If you don't know me....I absolutely HATE needles!! Then right as they were finishing that a guy from the lab came to take blood.....grrr.  I had the surgery the next morning at like 7:30.  I was so nervous!  The last time I was in the hospital for surgery was when I was like 2 or 3 getting my tonsils out! They put me to sleep for the surgery.  When I woke up I was in pain and when I am in pain I am really cranky ( according to my mom .)  That day I went to the bathroom every hour to 30 minutes.  Up and down all day! The next day I was in a little pain but not as bad as the day of surgery.  I got to go home on thursday May 12th!  Me and hubby live in an apartment in Prosper on the 3rd floor.  So since hubby works all day we moved in with my parents so my mom takes care of me....brings me food and things I need while hubby is working all day.  Thank you momma!! My next sonogram appointment is May I will let yall know how it goes!
So far it's been 3 days on bed rest.  Thank goodness we have Netflix!  I watch movies, read magazines, and facebook of course.  So that's why I started this blog to keep me busy. 

Hope everyone enjoys following along!

Lets have a BABY!

So last year we decided we wanted to start a family.  We tried for about 5 or 6 months or so.  In January I started feeling some symptoms, so I took a pregnancy test.  It was negative, then a week or so it was positive!!  I am pregnant!  I was crying and excited all at the same time. 
So then I went to Walmart and bought a poster board, a pink outfit and blue outfit, and a pink and blue sharpees.  I went back to our apartment and made a poster for hubby and put it on the wall for him to see when he got home from work!  He was soo EXCITED!!!  He picked me up and hugged me for a long time!  We are gonna be PARENTS!!!

The next morning I called the OB Dr. and set up and appointment for February 9th!  I had to wait about about a week to go to the Dr. and man it felt like FOREVER!!

One night we were at my parents for my cousins Santiago's birthday.  We were all sitting watching tv, so we thought it was the perfect time to tell my family!  So I busted out saying " Well everyone one I have something to say!"  "I'm PREGNANT!!"  Everyone was sooo happy!!  My mom starts crying instantly!!  My family is soooo excited!!!

The next night we wanted to drive to Daniel's parents house, but the ice storm hit so we had to keep it a secret from them for a few days.  When we finally made it to their house we told them they were going to be grandparents again ( Dan's brother has a little girl) they were sooooo excited!!!! 
We are soo BLESSED to have the best family!!

So Feburary 9 th came along.  The appointment was like at 1:30 or so.  So hubby picked me up from work and we went together! We were so excited!!!  I had to fill out some paperwork and give them my insurance card and liscense and I payed the copay.  Thank you Jesus we have insurance!
So they called us in and they took my blood pressure and temp.  Then went into the sonogram room!  First they did an outer sonogram and saw the baby but not very clear, so they did an internal sonogram.  Then the nurse looked at me and said " Do you see what I see?"  I said there's 2!! She said "yep!" I started freaking out and crying, but it was happy tears!  Hubby ran over and held my hand and he was really quiet and had a HUGE smile on his face!  He was taking it all in!  I kept saying OMG we are having TWINS!  The nurse told us that they were fraternal twins cause they have seperate sacks.  So then we went to see the Dr.  She just went over some general things like prenatals to take and what to eat/ not eat while I am pregnant.  She told me she wanted me to see a special sonogram Dr. since they are twins to regulate their growth and development.   Then I made my next appointment for march! 
So then we went to my parents house and showed my mom the sonogram!  Immediately she started screaming at the top of her lungs! She said "I knew it!"  We were both crying we were soo happy!  I know my parents will be the best grandparents ever!   Then hubby took me back to work and I told everyone at work!   
The next night we drove to Daniel's parents and showed them the sono and they were soo happy!  At first they didn't understand that it was twins so we had to explain it to

I went for my March appointment and the Dr. told me that I could not lift more than 15 pounds.  So therefore, my job told me I could not work as long as I have a lifting restriction.  Thankfully they are letting me keep the insurance, I just make payments to them every 2 weeks.  So then I started staying home every day.  I spent my days watching movies, cleaning and doing laundry.  I would visit my mom some days and we would go shopping and have lunch together!!
