She is here!!!

I have been completely out of touch with the world since Maci arrived.  My telephone broke the day I gave birth and I haven't been able to get a new one yet, and I haven't been anywhere near a computer to post pictures yet.  I promise to write a more detailed post later, on the 26 hour labor and eventual C-Section that brought our miracle to us, but for right now you will just have to settle for a few precious pictures of little Miss Maci!!

Update on My Friend Heather

I had asked for prayers in this post for my friend Heather.  Just a quick update, she let me know yesterday all is going well.  The smaller of the twins gained 3oz. and the larger twin gained 1oz.  they show plenty of fluid.  She also said the doctor didn't see any signs of long term damage.  It seems right now as if the surgery did exactly what it should have done, and the twins are doing well.  Praise the Lord!!!!  Please keep praying for this family.

Baby Shower at Nichole's

Here are a few pictures from the shower that Nichole gave me this past weekend and a belly pic or two.  It was so much fun, I wish I had gotten more pictures of the people that were actually there, I didn't even get one of me and Nichole...kind of upsetting.

DOCTOR'S APPT 36W 5D

Went to the doctor this morning.  Still only 1cm.  Head down.  Sonogram showed she is 7lbs and 14oz.  I pray she is a little off.  She will be around 8 1/2 lbs if she is right.  Still have to get baskets for storage for her room, a diaper caddy, and still have some of her clothes to be washed before she gets here.  I have my bags packed and waiting.  Just keeping my hair dryer and make-up out for every day uses.  My best friends mom gave me the wreath for the door this weekend, and it is very cute I might add.  Also, Nichole made me the cutest burp cloths and bibs and diaper bag from their business Lady Bugs and Lassos (click the link on my side bar, they have great stuff).  I have pictures from the shower at Nichole's house this weekend, but I didn't bring my camera to upload them....hopefully soon.  I am so behind on posting pictures.  Sorry.

Short Update

We should have a baby in less than two weeks.  They are going to schedule an induction to make sure my husband can be there (his job isn't very flexable for surprises).  I am already at 1 cm, and the baby is very low.  If you want to know the truth about it I am very miserable at this point (thus the reason for no heart felt blogging these days).  I am exhausted and not sleeping well, but there is an end in sight, and wonderful end I might add.  I am working shortened hours, and honestly wish I could just start maternity leave NOW...I am soooooo tired.  She should be here in time for Christmas, so I bought her a stocking, and am searching for a Christmas Dress for picutres.  All in all things are great, I just feel VERY pregnant.

Also, I have a friend who is pregnant with twins.  They were diagnosed with Twin to Twin Transfusion.  I am not sure of the specifics of the disease, I am going to have to research it a little better.  She left for Texas yesterday to have a corrective surgery, and the babies did great.  From what I understand they will have an excellent chance for survival pending what happens over the next week.  Basically I want to ask you all to pray for my friend and her babies for healing for the twins and peace for my friend, I can't even imagine what she is going through.  Her name is also Heather.
