Almost There!

I have a feeling my next post will announce my babies!

I'm 35 weeks and 4 days along.  At my appointment today, the boys were about 5 and a half pounds each. Once again, they were facing my backside, so no pictures. I think it has been a month since we've gotten to see their faces/profiles! Carter is still breech and Nolan is vertex so we will still be having a c-section...though I'll wait for labor to begin before heading to the hospital.

I was dilated to just about 3 cm today. So my cervix is changing even while I'm still resting! If I get moving, these boys could be here super fast! Dr. Martin thinks we'll be having them early next week.

So I think I'll keep resting for now then actually go OUT to dinner this weekend, for the first time since Halloween weekend. I was thinking Patrizio, but Dr. Martin said she totally ate at Patrizio the nights before both her boys were born! CRAZY!

Then Sunday, Brad and I will take a walk! You don't understand, I've been thinking about and planning this walk for quite some time now. We'll see how far my feet can carry my big body! Monday, maybe I'll get a pedicure. Anyone want to join me?

I'm still having some discomfort in my wrists and hands. My finger joints are very weak and a little painful and my finger tips are all numb. It is so weird! Like my fingertips have fallen asleep and won't wake up!

I can't believe how far we've come. I've been pregnant now for 8 months. I remember checking into the hospital November 2nd, very afraid, thinking 2010 was so far away.  Now here we are, approaching February....the same month as our due date.

I am so excited to meet our baby boys! I don't feel too nervous for labor and surgery, just yet. I just want the time to come already!  I think Brad's pretty ready, too! He wants me to start taking walks now!

So I'm thinking Feb. 3rd or 4th would be nice...Wednesday or Thursday. I like those days!

I know you both are just dying to know what they look like and to just finally hold them in your arms. Good luck with everything and please let us know when they arrive!!! Love you, Lauren

  5. I'm very excited for you! Good luck and I'll be thinking of you. I'll be right behind you soon...if my babies don't come on their own we are scheduled to go on Feb. 26!
