December Eve!

Tomorrow is December 1st. I honestly can look back and say this year flew by. I feel like we were just getting our house decorated last year and Jack was aware and a bit interested, but this year it's amazing. He is in love with snowmen, reindeer, snow, Christmas trees and lights! He is fascinated by it all and I love it!

I was 26 weeks yesterday. Had my doctor's appointment today and from here on out every 2 weeks I will see my OB.

Weight gain and blood pressure look great. They are still sitting high which is good, but since they are so high, my uterus is pushing up on my stomach causing some issues....aka puking. But, since I know that's the cause I can try to just eat super small meals throughout the day and that should help!

Little Mr. Camden (he is baby A) has his feet down where they should not be...in fact my OB felt a foot :) So...he is definitely still small enough to turn around, and at my 34 week ultrasound we hope he will be head down! If not, they will schedule my C-section then. So I've decided to just plan on a C-section and be super surprised if I don't have to have one. I will keep praying they'll flip to the right position, but I don't want to be caught off guard if they don't!

No pre-term labor or real major contractions which is great for being 26 weeks with twins!

I did do my Glucose Test today and the number was 4 about the limit (basically BARELY) but that means I have to do the 3 hour test with fasting. I'm hoping it was just the Captain Crunch I ate for breakfast this morning :) So, be praying for me that this next test is a big fat NEGATIVE on the gestational diabetes! BUT if I do have it, even if it's barley...I feel quite confident. I was a medical assistant for an Endocrinologist and a Diabetes Educator for a couple years and feel very comfortable with the whole thing!

Measuring at 32 weeks, which is normal for twins.

Other than feeling large and uncomfortable I've felt pretty darn great. I am confident that your prayers along with so many others contributed to this and I trust that things will continue to go great and I will make it to February 14th!

So, that's the pregnancy update.

This week brings so many fun things! We are having our family pictures and maternity pictures taken Friday by one of my dearest friends who happens to be an amazing photographer! Check out her site here!
Later that day we're going to go cut down our tree and that night is our Small Group Christmas get-together!

Saturday is my baby shower! YAY! That same amazing photographer friend is throwing this shower....did I mention she's amazing!? And then Sunday is our Christmas program at church! Fun and busy days ahead!


We started a Thanksgiving Eve tradition this year with a fire in the backyard and roasted marshmallows with hot cocoa! Here are some pictures! Along with a couple from Jack and I making sugar cookies! OH! And have you grabbed my button for your blog yet?!?! Look over on the left hand side of my page :)


That's my sweetie!

YUM!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!


Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
