Life can change so fast

It's amazing how quickly life can chance. On Friday I decided I wanted to bust out my camera and take a few pictures of little moments in our day for a couple of days. I'm really happy I did because little did I know Sunday I would be having contractions and Monday I would be put on strict bed rest. I love that I have these moments of the last couple of days when life was "normal."

We knew it was coming

{Warning, this post is a little TMI, if you don't like that type of post, I would go ahead and stop reading}

Live.Laugh.L0ve. // We knew it was coming

I have officially been put on bed rest. We knew it was coming, but we didn't think it would be so soon or that it would happen like it did. I had always assumed I would be put on bed rest later in my pregnancy because of my back, not because I was going into labor early...

It started on Saturday when I was having what I thought were a few braxton hicks contractions, they hurt and they were in my back, but I definitely didn't think they were real contractions. They didn't last long and eventually they stopped. Well, Sunday morning I had a few again, but again they stopped so I just assumed they were braxton hicks again. Little did I know at the time, they weren't.

Sunday I was feeling a bit off, I really don't know how else to describe it other than the fact that I just didn't feel like myself. Well, Sunday afternoon I went pee for the fiftieth time and noticed that my pee was a very bright yellow/green. To say I was slightly freaked out about that is probably an understatement, but I wasn't sure it was cause for concern so I didn't do anything about it. I waited about thirty minutes and went pee again to just check and see if it was the same. This time though, there was a pretty good size wet spot in my panties and after I went pee, my pee was the same as it was thirty minutes prior. I decided to do what I do best when I'm not sure about something, I Googled it. Well, I didn't like what I was reading so I called the on call number for my doctor and left a message explaining what happened. Ten minutes later I got a call back and was told I needed to come up to Labor and Delivery to get checked out, they wanted to make sure my amniotic fluid wasn't leaking.

I told Hubby about it, we got ready, loaded the kids up, and dropped the boys off at my mom's house and headed up to the hospital. We got back in a room quickly and the questions and tests began. They did a test to see if I was leaking amniotic fluid and to see if I was in preterm labor. At this point I was having contractions two to three minutes apart and they were hurting. Thankfully the amniotic fluid test came back negative, my cervix was closed and I wasn't dilating. Unfortunately the preterm labor test came back positive. That test tells you there is a 45% chance you could go into labor within the next 2 weeks. I didn't like that one bit.

Well, since my contractions were so close and so intense they went ahead and admitted me to the hospital, gave me medicine for the pain and medicine to try and stop the contractions. I got about four hours of sleep and Monday around eleven, my contractions were coming again like they were Sunday night which meant the first medicine to try and stop the contractions weren't working and that scared me. They decided to try a different medicine to try and stop the contractions again and check my cervix again to make sure nothing changed. Thankfully my cervix hadn't changed and the new contraction meds were working. I was also super emotional yesterday, I kept crying on and off and just feeling sad and worried. My poor husband was taken by surprise when I just randomly burst into tears, but he comfortred me and told me everything was going to be okay. I knew I was just worried and exhausted and that's what brought on the random crying, but I still hate breaking down like that. I also wanted to go home, I wanted to see my boys, and if I was going to be on bed rest, I wanted to be on bed rest from home. Thankfully, by six pm, I had only had one or two contractions and I was doing/feeling better so my doctor said I could go home.

I'll be on bed rest at home until he says otherwise and I have to continue taking the contraction meds. We are so thankful the babies weren't born yesterday and we are praying they stay put awhile longer! That was a scary experience and I'll be doing everything I can to keep these babies baking for a while longer!

A little peek at Halloween around our house

A couple of weeks go, I hit up Hobby Lobby for some fun Halloween crafts. We haven't completed all of them yet, but I'm hoping to get them done this weekend! I also bought a couple of adorable Halloween decorations from cvs a couple of weeks ago as well. I love decorating and I especially love decorating around the holidays. I wanted to show y'all what Halloween is looking like around our house so far!

I really love this purple spiderweb fabric and I still have a lot of it left! I would love some ideas on how to use up the rest of it!

Bump Update - 27 weeks

Live.Laugh.L0ve. // Bump Update - 27 weeks

STATS:

How far along am I? 27 weeks and 6 days.
How big are the babies? The babies are each the size of a cauliflower. At my last doctors appointment 3 weeks ago, Baby A was 1 Pound 9 Ounces and Baby B was 1 Pound 7 Ounces. :)
Total weight gain? 2 weeks ago I had already gained 14 pounds. According to this website, they are now almost 2lbs each!
Sleep? My sleep has gotten a little better. My restless leg syndrome still acts up and I still have to pee a couple of times throughout the night, but the new muscle relaxer they put me on is helping me sleep.
Best moment of the week? Hubby has been home this week and him being able to feel the babies kick or watch my stomach move whenever he wants has been absolutely wonderful!
Food cravings? Ramon noodles, cheddar popcorn, and Reese's! Hasn't changed from last week!

Symptoms:
Mainly just being tired a lot and having to pee way too many times throughout the day! lol.

Movement:
We have some active babies in my belly. They move so much. I can feel them, Hubby can feel them, the boys can feel them, heck anyone who wants to feel them can! You can also see my stomach move when they move now!

What I'm looking forward to:
Sonogram next week and working on the nursery some more!

Next Appointment:
Next week.

Nursery update:
We've made a bit of progress since my baby shower. We moved Hubby's desk out of the nursery and moved the big shelf type thing from our room into the nursery that is going to be used as storage for diapers/wipes and some of their clothes. I also washed all of the newborn outfits we got and hung them up/folded them. We also got a glider from my mother in law as my baby shower gift!

Gender:
Still two little boys in there! =D
