33 Weeks

5 Just FIVE more weeks at the most until we get to meet our boys!! I am so excited yet nervous. Its hard for me to believe that we have made it this far with only moderate rest and not full bedrest. Totally BLESSED!! Just this past week I have started moving pretty slow and having pregnancy pains that I'm not really used to but I guess when you are carrying twins at 33 weeks and measuring well over 42 weeks thats going to start happening. I am so grateful for friends that have been willing to help out with the boys during the day and when I have doctor appointments to make life a little bit easier. I am also greatful for a husband who comes home after working all day and picks up the rest of the duties for the evening with the boys so that I can rest as much as possible.

33 weeks and counting down:

Totally blessed to be carrying twins....amazing that God has called me to carry two babies at once an extra special blessing that this mama is happy to experience!

32 Weeks

So as the Dr. said yesterday we have reached another milestone with the pregnancy 32 weeks. I can hardly believe that we are down to 5 weeks and a few days before they will be here. We have been working hard on the to do list! We have the nursery set up just need to get a few more things done but its painted and has all the furniture set up. I will hopefully post pictures in the next little bit of the progress. Both boys are being pretty stubborn and are not in position so as of now we are planning on a c-section. We have one baby that is transverse (laying across my stomach) and the other one is breech. I am still trying to hold out hope that they will turn but as the weeks go by the chance of that happening goes down.

We have been blessed with two showers to help us prepare for the babies! I will try to post pictures from the showers soon. I really dont want to post any pictures of myself I feel HUGE but I am posting two just to make me feel better......

The first picture was taken in January just a couple of days before we found out we were pregnant I was so excited about all the weight I had lost! =) The second picture was taken this week 32 weeks. I definetly feel like I look like I am having twins although I have been hearing quiet a bit- you really dont look that big! I can't wait to meet our little men but know that they need to cook a little bit longer before making their grand entrance!

Ready for Kindergarten

Christian says he is ready for Kindergarten...he asks all the time when he gets to go since he is going to be 5. We have the conversation weekly talking about him going to preschool one more year and having another summer break before he starts kindergarten. He seems ok with it at the time but then it comes back up in converstation again in the next couple of days.
He loves writing and is starting to read. Here are a few pictures of him practicing writing his letters. We have two books one for capital letters and one for lower case letters. I think he is doing a great job!
Total concentration- more then one person in this house makes faces when concentrating but I will leave them nameless :)
Proud of his hardwork- can't believe he is so stinkin big!
Pretty Awesome if I dont say so myself!
I can hardly believe that in just a few weeks he will start his last year of preschool and  we will celebrate his 5th birthday! The time has flown by...whats the saying the days drag by but the years fly-- S.O. T.R.U.E. He amazes me with how smart he is. We have been working on different things with him. He is reading some, knows his full name, phone number, full address, birthday, days of the week, 12 months, can add and subtract (love this since Math was always my fav.subject) more about dinosaurs, and cars then I could ever think possible.

I know that he is anxious to start Kindergarten but I'm glad that he has one more year at home!

31 Weeks~

I can hardly believe we are 31 weeks!! We are down to single digits until our little men arrive!! I have my check list going and need to finish the last couple of big things that I want to have done before they get here. Sorry I haven't posted any pictures to be honest I dont have many that of myself that I am willing to post. We went to the OB last week and the UNC specialist this week and we have two healthy boys growing! I am measuring just over 40 weeks (although I must admit I feel MUCH bigger =). We are hoping to make it to 37/38 weeks which means we have 6/7 weeks left. When I think about that I get a little nervous.

We were at the specialist yesterday and both of the boys look good and are gaining weight like little champs. Baby Boy A is weighing in at a whopping 3lbs 11oz (35%) and Baby Boy B is weighing in at 3lbs 5oz (25%). Its hard for me to believe that when I combine their weight they are right at 7lbs! We got to see quite a bit of baby boy B he was very active and moving all around. He LOVES to have his hands in his face and even had his eyes open a couple of times! Now Baby A was not as cooperative he didn't want to show us much at all yesterday. He was facing my back so we couldn't see very much but it wont be long =). I was a little upset that they are not in postion and we are running out of time and room for them to get ready. One is breech and the other is pretty much transverse. There is still a little bit of time for them to move I really dont want to have a c-section but God already knows what is going to happen.

Right now each baby is about the size of 4 oranges and 15inches long!

How Far Along: 31 weeks

Clothes: Maternity once again I dont think that will change

Movement: YES! All the time they are quite active =)

Food/Cravings: I would love to have a cup of sweet tea from Chick-fil-a....but that can wait just a few more weeks. I will say that Mexican has been a favorite throughout this pregnancy

What I Miss: Being able to get the clothes out of the washing maching without my belly getting in the way =)

Being able to get up from the couch or a chair in less than 5 minutes

I will try to post pictures later this week.
