Nursery and Shower Pictures

As promised several weeks ago. Bad blogger.

Great appointment yesterday, however! Dr. P is very happy with my cervix (still the same and stable under pressure) and the babies are looking great. I cannot wait to see how big they are on Thursday! They will have full growth and Biophysical Profiles as well. We hope to see them continuing to practice their breathing. We are hoping for around or over 3 lbs, 5 ounces (1500 grams). That is a big milestone for preemies and it would be wonderful to know they were past that should they decide to arrive early.

I have been promising pictures... so here are a few from baby showers and some nursery ones. I will post another set when it is finished.

The cute diaper cake my awesome neighbors made for me:


The cookie favor from my Mom's Group friends:


The cake from my friends and family shower:


My anniversary present! A new diaper bag (that has back pack straps... very important)!



A few nursery shots. Right now, we have two cribs in the only partially finished nursery, and one in our room. They will be able to co-sleep for a long time, but I know how often they'll be sleeping with us too!











We are putting up their art today, so updated pictures soon! As for the belly shot, it is coming... it might not fit on the screen.

  1. I want to say "nah nah nah nah, nee ner nee ner nee ner" because I ALREADY SAW ALL OF THESE ON FACEBOOK BECAUSE I AM COOL ENOUGH TO BE FRIENDS WITH CARRIE IN REAL LIFE" but I will refrain. Why? Because no one cool enough to be friends with you on FB and in real life, no less would ever be that annoying competitive.

    Just so we're clear.

    Right.

    Love all the pics and especially the cute one of you and DH that you didn't post here..oh. OOPS!

  6. Awwwww! I am a total stranger but I'm all geeked out over your awesome nursery for those wonderfully well-gestated boys! You are doing SO well with the pregnancy and it may be luck of the draw but you should totally still pat yourself on the back. You are actually having three BABIES! Whoo! Congratulations! So happy for your family :)

  10. Love the pics! Come on, boys, top 1500 grams!! Woo Hoo!!! (1500g is when our twins will move from the "hardcore" NICU to the "transitional" NICU, a step closer to coming home!!! So, we are looking forward to that magic number too!)

  12. Fun pictures! Love it all. Those cookies are the cutest, and the cake too. I love the color you picked for the boys' room, it's very similar to what we have in my son's. It's bright and happy but not overwhelming.

    Based on your previous belly pics, I'm sure you look amazing!!

  17. Hi there, I'm another total stranger who has just recently stumbled onto your blog because my husband and I will be starting IFV treatment at the end of this month. I'm absolutely petrified, but your blog has made me feel a little less alone and a little more inspired and I'm wishing you and your boys lots of luck!

  18. Carrie The Nursery is beautiful :)
    Congratulations on the cool stuff at your baby shower! I wish I could have a shower But I am too far from everyone we know. They are just sending money. ( I can deal with that :P )
    I will miss your posts when You go in to have the babies. Maybe Your Hubby could let us know you and the babies are ok when you go in? So many of us care whats going on. :)
    Take care!!

  22. Yay for your cervix! I have my fingers crossed that the boys are all well over 3 lbs now. Can't wait to read your next update after their growth scan.

    Love the cribs and nursery, and the beautiful shower pics. Can't believe we're already counting days not weeks!

  23. I am so glad to hear and see that things are still going well for you! I hope your appointment goes well too! Thanks for your support while I was in the hospital-it was nice to be reminded that you had a mini-stay there too and that you were able to be released. Only 12 days for me and I think 10 for you until 32 weeks!! Can't wait! Keep up the great gestational work! :)
