Gettin' Close

Honestly, I can't believe that I have gone from this

to this....

in 5 months. And I also can't BELIEVE that I'm posting this picture of me. Oh well. I want you all to know that this will be the LAST TIME I post a picture of myself before these babies are born so soak it up my friends, soak it up. These "lovely lady humps" are signing off, so if you'd like to see more in the weeks to come, I'd be happy to email a picture to you.

I can't believe I only have 6 more weeks to go. This pregnancy has actually gone by really fast for me. Starting next week I will have two appointments a week until these babies are born. The first appointment is done at the hospital, where they perform a non-stress test on the babies. It's a test that basically monitors their heart rates, their amniotic fluids, and my contractions for about a half hour. Then I will have my regular doctor's appointments and I believe the next time I go they will check my dilation. Oooooo, this makes me nervous. Sure my body is ready to have them. I think my skin has about stretched to its limit and I'm starting to have some painful contractions at night that usually last about a minute. However, I don't know if I'll ever be mentally ready to have them. To be honest, I'm scared to death of taking care of two babies at once but I'm really excited too. Anyway, my hubby needs the computer, but just know that hopefully the next time you see me in a picture, it will be of me holding my little cuties!!

You still look amazing. You seem to be carrying them pretty high...which is good. They need to bake a little longer. You are teeny weeny everywhere else. Keep us updated on any news from the appointments. I can't believe they are coming so soon.

I think you look great! You are so cute and small everywhere else. Personally, I am betting that they come a lot sooner than six weeks. Hopefully, they wait until July. Love ya and you will be glad you took these photos to show them one day. :) Mom

Wow! That is impressive.

I'm a terrible friend of Scott's but I was just checking in to see if you guys had the babies yet. Looks like Maran is more than ready. Good luck with that.

Seriously.

ps what is "Actuarial Science"? Must be beyond my intelligence.

You're pregnant?!? With twins! Ok, I"m little behind. I just stumble across your blog from the Mannings blog. We just had our first a couple of weeks ago. I can't imagine twins! But bet it will be such a joy. Good luck!

(love your blog, btw!)
