30 Weeks!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! Ours was great....I am still waiting for some pictures and then I'll do a post. Maybe you're "Christmas posted out"...so it will be super exciting when I do post...haha.

So...I am now 30 weeks. Wow....in the 30's...feels good and crazy all at the same time. I had my OB appointment today and have some new prayer requests so here's the run down!

* Boys are still feet down...like I said before I'm mentally preparing myself for a C-Section, but I am still praying they will flip around so I don't have to. I'd love you to pray for this as well!

* I have started to dilate. Not too bad, but I'm at a 1. He has told me I need to slow it down. Giving up things like laundry, and lots of lifting. My husband has asked me not to grocery shop alone or do anything extra and my OB has asked me to listen to my husband :) I'm a worrier. And because I worry, it will make me slow down...but I don't want to live in fear. I just want these boys to stay in until at LEAST 36 weeks. NO NICU time is a HUGE prayer request since we've gone through it before and would just prefer NOT to do it again :)

* My OB will be out of town during my 37th week :( ...the week he wanted me to get to and then induce/c-section. SOoooooo.....at my 34 week u/s we will see how the boys are doing and decide from there if we will schedule their birth on February 10th (36 weeks 3 days) or if we schedule it for February 22nd (38 weeks 2 days) So that u/s will tell us a LOT. How they are positioned and what the next step is. I very well could go into labor on my own while he's gone and we'll just have to deal with that. I know God is in control and these things have a way of working themselves out...but I LOVE my OB and really want him to deliver these boys! 

All else looks great, and I am feeling pretty good. Sleep is awful, heartburn is bad, and I get pretty sore and tired easily. But all things considered....I'm doing great! Just praying these next 6-7 weeks go by smoothly and quickly!

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.



It includes *…

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 …
