29 Weeks!

I am now 29 weeks....with a 36 week size uterus. I know it doesn't look big...but it feels really heavy. I've been able to go to the pool a few times each week and it's so wonderful. Feeling weightless has never felt so good. When I get out of the water I feel like 20 pounds heavier. I could stay in the water all day!

We got to see the girls via ultrasound today. It's amazing how big they look on the screen. They are growing so well....the doctor commented they are growing above average for twins. Those are my girls!! Little Miss Hope is weighing in at 3lb. 6oz. and Little Miss Genevieve is 3lb. 1oz. That is 6lbs of baby inside of me.....whoa! Their heads still remain down and right together. Hope was facing us and it looked like she was kissing the top of Genevieve's head. They love each other already. Hope even has a little bit of fuzzy hair on the back of her head. Genevieve was sucking her thumb and it was so amazing to see her little mouth moving. They just amaze me every time I see them.
I also started my non-stress tests today...two of those per week now until I deliver. Oh joy! Today went well and I hope that having these tests each week will give me reassurance that they are doing great.

As I was praying for today and giving my day to the Lord I felt total peace. I lifted up my girls to the Lord and thanked Him for entrusting them to me. He gave me peace that He is in control and He is holding them in His hands. As I was doing my bible study of David the following verse stuck out to me;
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God;
he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.
Deuteronomy 7:9

The Lord is so faithful!
