I guess I'm lucky to have made it to 31 weeks before I got put on bed-rest. Feb 4th (2 days before my 30th birthday) was the day I found out it was time for the dreaded bed-rest. The ultrasound showed that my cervix had gotten thinner, which is a sign of pre-term labor. So that means the more I'm off my feet - the longer I can keep these babies in. I had unfortunately gotten a taste of what bed-rest would be like due to being sick for the entire week AND the crazy snow storm. Sick & pregnant during a snow-storm means this chick is NOT moving from her recliner! So, maybe that was all a blessing in disguise to keep me off my feet (trying to be a little positive).

Happy 30th birthday to me!
So, I did sneak out of the house for a family dinner to celebrate my b-day. Then, Kyle left for several days for a "work" trip in Vegas. (I'm sure they worked REALLY hard at the superbowl party, casinos, golf course, dinner parties...) you get the picture. I'm not bitter at all ;-)
However, my mom stayed with me until he got back, which was wonderful!!!

We're almost 33 weeks!!!!!
The good news is Harper & Owen are doing great. She's still a little more active and a little larger then Owen. As of last week (31 weeks) Owen was 3 lbs 4 oz & Harper was 3 lbs 11 oz. Right on track! And I'm not dilating yet.
The bad news - swollen hands & feet, cramping, Braxton-Hicks, peeing every 10 minutes, can't sleep... Oh and I'm not sure if my belly can possibly stretch anymore!!!! Uuggghhhh!

Anyway, overall things are good and we're hoping to make it to 35 weeks (which will be the end of the month). We'll keep everyone posted and appreciate your help, love, support & prayers!
