can you guys believe we’re at 31 weeks today?! sometimes i forget how far we’ve come and how long i’ve actually been on bed rest {9 weeks!} and for that i feel so thankful. it’s been really hard on my psyche, but i suppose laying on a bed/couch everyday will do that to a person. and to be honest, most days are harder than maybe i’ve led on. there have been a lot of bitter feelings and even though i’m usually a pretty positive person, i’ve had many “woe is me” moments. i’m a little embarrassed about that, mostly because this pregnancy isn’t really about me, it’s about the babies; and instead of feeling sad for my loss {not being able to go to baby stores to pick out clothes, nursery items, show off my growing belly to friends, etc} i know that i should just feel happy that the babies are still growing and thriving every single day. i do think that as the weeks go by it is easier to focus on the positive things and to forget about all of the negatives. and so that is my goal this week – to say something i’m happy about and thankful for everyday. so to start i’ll tell you guys how thankful i am that at my appointment last week, my cervix was unchanged {yay!} and…baby boy already weighs 3 lbs 6 oz and baby girl weighs 3 lbs 7 oz!! all of those positive thoughts, vibes, and prayers must really be working so keep them up! also, you may have noticed that my celebratory food was not donuts, but cupcakes instead. it’s because we are no longer by the donut place – yes, we have FINALLY moved!!! we are still settling in and have a lot of unpacking to do, but oh my gosh i’m in love with this house already! i’ll try to post some pics for you guys soon! and for those of you close to a donut place, eat one for me today!

    I’ve been waiting for this post, and it is exactly what I’m happy and grateful for today!! There is nothing easy about what you’re doing and how far you’ve come and I hope you’re as proud of yourself as we are of you. Sending love everyday. xoxoxoxo nb
