Still Growing (33 weeks)

That is the motto for my life right now- "Still Growing". It goes for both the boys and myself.

The doctor's appointment went great yesterday! Both boys are just a little over 4 1/2 lbs. each! That means that there is 9 lbs. of baby in me...plus the additional weight/space of two sacs. The guy on my left is head down still, and the guy on my right is transverse (sideways). This hurts my belly, but I am hoping he is trying to make his way to being head-down. If that does happen, then we can attempt a natural delivery! (oops...maybe we should have attended those birth classes...too late now!)

Mom & Dad are flying in today to spend a couple days with us. Dad is excited to get his baby in the air (his little airplane). I am sure that all kinds of projects will get accomplished around the house- I can't wait!

I am running out of names to put on the X list...but I will try to come up with a couple: Tate & Peyton

funny story sarah...the shelf didn't even require a drill. all it took was a level and a phillips head. but i still was the one to put it up! : )

Sounds like the boys are really healthy and making sure they are ready for their big debut! You are lucky that you get to see them at every appt. I bet I won't have another sono until the very end! :)

Very exciting!!! And you KNOW you are always welcome over here inside and out! The pool is beautiful and soon, very soon the water will be warm.

I love these updates. I got to see Gini at the district track meet yesterday. She is so nice. She qualified for the 800. Later.

The room is adorable but you are more adorable. I have seen many women who are pregnant with twins and you are hands down the cutest!

I love all the pictures! I kept looking for hints of the babies' names but I couldn't find any. You're good, my friend. Miss you and love you. Say hi to the parents for me.
