Still waiting and waiting for these babies to make their appearance. I feel a little worse each day, tired achy and just ready to go get this done and get on the the next part. Although I am only 36wks today the babies are big and the doctors feel confident that if they come any one of these days they will be happy and healthy, so bring it on! I can’t imagine having to be pregnant for another month, it will be two weeks at most.
With the help of my Mom this past week we have gotten every last minute thing that either of us could think of done and wrapped up and she made the curtains for the babies room, which I am really thankful for since I can only use my hands for a few minutes at a time before they hurt to bad to do anything. And making curtains involves more standing over an ironing board than it does actual sewing, something I’m not even going to attempt at this point. So now the room is really ready, clothes are washed and put away (also thanks to mom) and a few more fun touches have been added thanks to my sweet husband.
This simple lamp from IKEA is going to eventually get a makeover
and hopefully look a lot like this
The closet needs some organizing and the pictures need to be hung, but these things will have to wait. I will add more over time once I regain normal feeling in my hands hopefully right after the little ladies arrive, but it could be a month or more (lets hope not).
These are some of the cute Carter’s twosies the girls have so far. I have to dress them matching while they are little, because once they get an opinion I don’t plan to make them dress alike, unless they want to ; )
After the moblie was hung I realized it’s not so interesting form babies view point, but we’ll make a point to look at the animals after the diapers are changed.
Here’s my twin version of this great nursery art I found online, I’m just waiting for the other dress I purchased from ebay to arrive.
My mom also got to come with me to my perinatal appointment last week where they measured the babies which are now approximately the size of a crenshaw melon. Baby a is bigger, weighing in at 6lbs 3ozs and baby b is slightly smaller weighing in at 5lbs 11ozs. What exactly is a crenshaw melon, I have no idea but it makes me think of that great movie with Morgan Freeman, Lean On Me. But if you really want to know here you go and a recipe in case you feel really inspired, let me know how it turns out.
It’s getting harder and harder to see the babies clearly in the scan pictures because they are so big and the ultrasound wand is so small. But they are both vertex, which mean head down, yeah! Here are profile shots of each baby.
I did manage to get the last belly pics done, here I am 8months pregnant with my twinsies, I really don’t know how my body is doing this. I have to say I am a little scared of what I am going to look like after ward, I’m thinking deflated balloon. But from the pictures of the women in my international twin momma facebook group maybe I have a chance of having the bikini ready body I so hope to have by next summer. My dermatologist recommended special stretch mark/scar stuff call kelo-cote, if you’ve heard anything I’d love to know what your thoughts on it are before I invest in the stuff. So while you are enjoying these last pictures of my very serious belly bump, please also take note of my seriously puffy feet, totally blotchy skin and very dried out hair, these babies have sucked all the good stuff from me, but I’m ok with it as long as they are healthy!
