I have been reading many other bloggers Marvelous Monday posts throughout the past few months and I am finally jumping on board and writing my first one today. I am so excited to tell you all about our weekend and our amazing doctors appointment this morning. Right now I am on cloud nine and it is a wonderful feeling.
Thank you Katie over at Healthy Diva Eats for hosting this uplifting link-up.
I will start with telling you about our fun busy weekend. This weekend was busy from Friday night until the Sunday night. We were literally non-stop. Steve’s birthday is tomorrow, so we had a few celebrations this weekend.
It started on Saturday night with dinner at Maggiano’s Little Italy with my family. If you have never been there you must get there soon.
We ordered off the family style menu and let me tell you there was a ton of food and it was all delicious. We started with salad, mozzarella, and peppers and sausage. Then our main course was cheese ravioli, lasagna, francese chicken (which was so moist), and steak medallions. I wish I would have thought to take a picture of the table with all that food on it is was crazy. The nice thing is we got to take all our leftovers home. We have been eating this yummy food for a few days. I am sorry, I really need to get better at remembering to take pictures of my food when we go out dinner. I have finally gotten good at taking pictures of my food at home, but haven’t gotten used to doing it at restaurants yet. But, I promise I will get there soon. 🙂
On Sunday evening we went over to Steve’s mom’s house to have a birthday celebration with his side of the family. Steve requested steak, cheesy potatoes, green beans, garlic bread, and strawberries. This is one of his most favorite meals. Everything was truly delicious. And to end all of the yummy food his Nana made one of her “famous” cakes and it was just as fabulous as always. The girls especially enjoyed this part of the party.
We had one of our weekly ultrasounds this morning. Which I have to tell you we were very nervous about going to this appointment. We simply didn’t know what to expect. We didn’t know if we were going to be told our girls TTTS was regressing or progressing. We just want our girls to be healthy and we can’t wait to hold them in our arms. I know, I know I am rambling you just want me to get to the details of the appointment. It was all GOOD NEWS today. Our little ones amniotic fluid has actually gone up from 2.2 to 3.4 and our bigger ones amniotic fluid has stayed the same at 8.4. This is all great news. Their heartbeats were strong and they simply looked amazing. The specialist actually told us that with our fluid levels at those levels we would barely be labeled in a stage 1. I haven’t felt this happy in awhile. I can’t even begin to tell all of you how I am feeling today. I want to thank all of you for your amazing thoughts and prayers. I truly believe all of the prayers from everyone are going to help our girls get through this difficult time. Thank you for all your love. We have so many wonderful ultrasound pictures from today. Once I get this uploaded onto the computer I will post them.
