31 Weeks and 33 Days to GO!

WAHOOOO, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am getting so excited! Only 4 1/2 weeks to go until we meet the babies. Bags are packed, bedding arrives next Tuesday and bookcase goes up this weekend. All the final touches, but great feelings of accomplishment!!

Today I am 31 weeks. Here is an update on what says a single baby should be doing at this week:

"This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy."

I am so proud because as far as weights goes, the babies are all right on track. Wyatt is ahead, but the girls are not too far behind. No wonder I am so super uncomfortable! Jessy Grace ad Wyatt's heads are under my right rib. They are can "turn from side to side" and it seems as they are for sure taking advantage of that. All three babies heads are on the right. Abigail is low laying breech across from right hip to left hip. Wyatt's head is under my right rib/side and his body lays diagonal down to my left hip. And finally Jessy Grace's head is also under my right rib, more in the middle and her feet are on the left side of my stomach. As of now the doctor doesn't see them moving positions all that much, at least their heads will stay in these spots.

Yesterday was super fun, as spring break 2010 visits continued! My cousin Jill came over in the morning and we had a great time just visiting and hanging out. She was great company, and other than the door bell ringing quite a bit, we had a great time! Thank you Jill! Later that afternoon, Jeanette, one of my Mary Kay girlfriends and her baby girl Mikaela came over for a visit. We had such a great time talking "baby" and catching up. Thank you Jeanette for all the wonderful baby gifts too. I especially love the little hats and "boggie wipes!"

Here's to the weekend!

Hi! My name is Amanda Estes and me and my parents are friends of Denise (we used to live in Hughes Springs). My parents (Bruce and Cindy Bradley) also live in Royse City so Denise told my parents to be praying for you and we have. My dad is a coach at the high school and my mother is the athletic secretary. I just wanted to say I love your blog and pray that you babies keep growing well! Congrats!
