Bed Rest and Blogging

They just seem like they should go together, so I thought I would start my first blog. In an effort to keep track of everything new that goes along with having our first baby (make that babies!), as well as keep family and friends in the loop, we're going to give this a try. And if you hadn't heard, we have decided on first names...Kate and Lily.

I'm currently 32 weeks and 5 days pregnant and on bed rest for the foreseeable future. We had another doctor's appointment yesterday and the girls are doing great. They both weigh about 4 pounds each which we were very excited about! We're hoping they can gain another pound in the next two weeks. The hard part has been trying to get everything done....from bed. I'm very lucky to have many helpers. My mom and Aunt Linda came in town this last weekend and put together the nursery. It looks amazing! The custom bedding we had made turned out better than I could have ever imagined. They also made a marathon run to Babies R Us to pick up last minute necessities from my registry. My mother-in-law came over last night and had also done some shopping for me. She got me some sleep wear for the hospital and also brought us dinner. We're also very lucky to have a bakery in the family. My father-in-law and brother-in-law have brought us so much food from Swirl Bakery We've also had many friends stop by to bring food, magazines, movies and books. Special thanks to Catherine for bringing all 6 seasons of Sex and the City! The nursery isn't 100% put together, but its very close. Here are some pictures of where Kate and Lily will be sleeping.
