I am HUGE!!! Last week I went for ultrasound both girls weigh 4.7 lbs and mom weighs 172. They are doing great. I am on weekly monitoring with my doctor at this point. The doctor says twins usually come between 34 and 36 weeks. I don't think our girls have any plans of coming anytime soon. My cervix has started to soften and I am still experiencing some contractions. Other than that we are doing great. I am still working I have cut back my work week by just 4 hours so I am still going strong. Although walking and normal activity is getting harder and harder everyday. My right ankle is really swollen now almost to the point that I can't get a shoe on. I go back to the doctor tommorow so we will see if there is any progress. I have opted to have a c section no matter what. There are just to many things that can go wrong during a natural birth with twins. I don't need any emergency situations arising. If I don't go into labor by Oct 25th we have a c section scheduled. At that point I would be 38.5 weeks. 21 days and yes I am counting. I am ready to meet our girls!
It still doesn't seem real that we are going to be parents let alone parents of twins. Fun Fun. We did get to have a first hand view of how things go this past weekend. Birdies for Babies golf outing was this weekend and I sat with Katie and her girls for a couple hours while we waited for the golfers to come in. Her girls are beautiful but oh man can you see what we are in for. It's going to be a lot of work but we are ready! Come out and play Kailey and Mckenna!
