I am such a Slacker!

Okay so everyone keeps yelling at me about updating my blog, I know I am such a slacker these days but I sit down to update and I don't even know where to begin, so here goes.
Okay first off No I have not had the babies yet we are all still hanging in there, but here is what has been going on for the last month or so. Okay it all started around 28 weeks which was the saturday before Christmas, k that weekend I ended up having some blood in my Urine(I know gross)anyways I kind of had it throughout the weekend so on monday I was pretty worried so I called the dr. and they told me that they wanted to see me right away so I got up there about noon that day the 22nd of Dec and I had to do all of these blood tests and urine tests and what not anyways my tests came back pretty okay there was just a little trace of blood but nothing to alarming so then they checked my blood pressure and it was 152/102 and it just kept staying really high so they decided that I needed to have an NST done(non stress tests) on the babies, well during those tests I was having 1 to 2 minute apart contractions so they were scared I was going into labor, so they sent me up to the Hospital, I arrived there at 3:00 and was not let out of there until 8:00 that night.
K they hooked me up to all of these monitors and IV's cuz they thought I was dehydrated, and for those of you who know me that is impossible with as much water as I drink but whatever they pumped me full of 2 bags of fluid and ran all these horrible tests on me and could not come up with anything, no infections no open cervics everything was coming back fine except the little trace of blood in my urine but nothing major, so they just decided that my contractions were from my high bloodpressure and I was going to be okay so they let me go home and they put me on BEDREST....good times!
K well that night I had to start this 24hr urine test and blood work, so not fun well since then I have done 4 and I am on my 5th one starting today yep it sucks but they just have to be cautious and watch me close cuz I could have these babies at anytime now.
So needless to say the last month has been alittle bit crazy, I see my dr. almost 3 times a week right now and do 24hr urine tests and blood work each week, I guess I have something in my urine called Creatinine and if it gets any worse I could have a stroke, or kidney failure or other complications so that is why they have to watch me so close, so my dr. has told me to just have my bags packed and in the car and ready to go to the hospital at anytime, well she told us last wed that we were going to the hospital on friday so to come with my bags, but when we got there she told us that my test results actually came back better then she thought they were going to so she let me stay home for another week, so I start my next 24hr urine tests today and go back tomorrow for blood work and then go back again on friday to get the results and to see if we are going to the hospital or if we can hopefully hang in there for 1 more week. So anyways that is what has been going on in our world for the last month.
Well I have NST's every week now on the babies and they are doing so great, its just mom that is struggling. Well they are both weighing in right now at 4lbs 5oz and 4lbs 2oz give or take a little from the ultrasound they are not exactly accurate but close. So needless to say I am carrying around an almost 9lb baby in here and miserable as hell just so you all know, but thats okay as long as they are doing well and keep doing well I will stick it out as long as I can.
K sorry for the novel but there you have it. K well I will try to keep you all posted hehehe!
K here are a couple of pics of our little 3D baby aliens:

This is baby A, with Baby B's feet kicking his brother in the face!

Anyways I can't wait to meet our little guys!

Well, as much fun as it would be for your boys to have the same birthday as Jaxon (and myself), I'm so glad they have decided to wait a little longer. That sounds so scary though about possible kidney failure or stroke! Good luck this next week, I am so excited for you!!!

Oh, BTW, did you get your furniture yet?
