Memory Lane

Here's a video from way back to the 9 week point of our pregnancy. This was the first time Charles and I had gotten to see the babies moving. They both were dancing .... and looked just like teddy grahams. Charles laughed so hard and we just shook our heads in awe. Even in the womb, these babies have more coordination than their Momma.

32 Weeks - The Home Stretch



Can you believe that we've made it to 8 months? I can't!

At my doctor's appointment today, the babies weren't interested in the paparazzi....so no great pictures to share. The babies each weighed approximately 4 pounds 3 ounces. Mommy weighs slightly more. :)

But, I do have NEWS! Dr. Risinger scheduled our big day for May 20th! Of course, things could happen earlier, but I am excited to have a date.

That's a month from today!!

Charles has been doing a great job working down the list of things to get done. Plus he has been doing lots of housework, too. I have been amazed at how little I am able to do. My big ol' honkin' feet are holding me back. Plus lots of other fun pregnancy hurdles. You might see me driving around in those automated carts in the stores because my feet can't take it. It is crazy!

30 weeks - Nose to Nose


This picture amazes me! Hopefully you can see that the babies are nose to nose...face to face. The sonographer, Sylvia - who is SOOOO wonderful at her job, was excited to see them in this position. She said that she'd never seen twins in this position before and she printed out a whole lot of them! Very special day for 'us'. The doctor was also really interested because she'd never seen a picture like that either. I'm really going to miss my ultrasound visits!
At this point, the girls each weighed approximately 3 and 1/2 pounds. Their heartrates are strong.
We're amazed, humbled and thankful for each visit where we get encouraging news. That is putting it mildly!

Oh my goodness! I had no idea how much fun it would be to look at little baby clothes.
Thanks to family and friends, our girls have an amazing supply of clothes. We'll be changing outfits every hour! If the girls weigh less than 5 pounds, they'll be wearing these little outfits home from the hospital.
