We have had quite an exciting month or so here in Wright, WY! Jase got offered a job with Powder River Energy, a co-op here in Wright. We decided this would be the best place for us to be at this point in our lives. It is a great company with a lot of fantastic benefits. One of my favorites is the fact that he is home at 3:30 every single day and he doesn't have to work on the weekends. This will be huge when the babies come. I am so excited about it. He has been working for a few weeks and really likes it. He feels like he is learning a lot. Another great thing is that there will be no more moving for a few years or so which is really a blessing. We are so grateful for the opportunities that have been placed in front of us.
We were able to make our last trip home the past few weeks before the babies come.It was so much fun. Each of our moms did a baby shower and they both turned out great. It was nice to see so many family members and to get a little bit more prepared for our little bundles of joy. Thanks to everyone who came and for your generosity. We really appreciate it! :)
The pregnancy has been going very well besides the fact I am getting a little large and a little miserable. I am measuring close to 40 weeks, my uterus that is and boy oh boy do I feel it. I just started the third trimester and it sure is a great feeling! Our goal is 34 weeks (at this point they will not have to life flight us out of Gillette and they are usually well developed by then) although anytime after would be great too. I can't believe that we are only five weeks away from this point. It's a little scary! We are getting really excited.
I am trying hard to stay positive. I now understand why women get so extremely uncomfortable the last month of their pregnancy. I am now "overdue" according to my uterus measurements. There are a few things that I will never take for granted again. Things like being able to pick something up without feeling like my chest is going to cave in, the ability to paint my toes, being able to get up from a chair in under a minute, and the ability to drink a class of water without feeling as if I am going to have a heart attack! But, there are definitely things that I have absolutely loved about being pregnant. Waking up to the boys dancing around in my belly, listening to Jase talk to them at nights and feeling them respond to Daddy's voice, seeing them on the ultrasound screen and hearing their little heartbeats. These are the things that I will miss the most.
I am very grateful that the pregnancy has gone so well so far. I have to remind myself daily that I was chosen to bring these babies into the world that not all women get the opportunity to carry and raise twins. Some days it is a very overwhelming responsibility. I know that Heavenly Father has faith in us, which gives me strength. Please continue to keep us in your prayers! We are getting so close, but we really need these little guys to stay in as long as possible!
