I'm Big!

Well today I had a doctor appointment. Good news and bad, the doctor says I'm doing so great I could go to 38 or 39 weeks, bad for me good for the twins. I honestly can't imagine being pregnant that much longer. Sure a normal pregnancy is 40 weeks but I'm already as big as a 40 weeker, what will I be in 7 weeks? Yikes.

I discussed labor and delivery a little with the doctor today. We are still shooting for a vaginal delivery as long as both babies are down. It gets complicated if on is head down and one is breech. I'm not sure I want to risk going through a vaginal only to have to go back and have a c-section too. I guess we won't know until we get there and honestly I just want them to get here safely.

Everything is actually going very well which is great. I thought I would feel worse than I do by now so I'm very thankful. I'm definitely not up for a trip to the mall but I can get around pretty decent. I had to go buy another pair of pants the other day which was a bummer. Who wants to spend more money on clothes because you are getting bigger? Today at weigh in I learned that I have gained 37 pounds, it could be worse.

Ryan's parents came down this past weekend. We went to dinner and his Mom cooked for us on Saturday. It was nice to have real food and not have to do any of the work. My parents are coming in a couple weeks, by then I'm not sure I will be able to get off the couch but we shall see.

I just found out the nursery furniture is coming on Thursday, hip hip hooray! I still want to get the nursery ready sooner rather than later, you never know with babies, my water could break tomorrow, let's just hope not. As big as I feel I'm still not ready.

Amanda,

Crew wanted me to tell you that we'd be happy to help organize the nursery, move furniture, etc. if you need help! He's excited for the twins to arrive and wonders if they'll arrive with any hair on their heads for him to pull on...

Love,
Tara and Crew
