My goodness....I am 8 months pregnant now!!!! Time is just flying by so quickly! I will get another belly picture tonight. :)
How I am feeling: Great! I haven't had any more real contractions since that night. I am feeling much more positive that I will carry these babies to term. I had a midwife appointment yesterday and she is very pleased with how well I am doing. I have gained 25lbs so far which is right on track for twins. She is happy with the babies' positions and their size at this point. My blood pressure is still perfect and I am not having any swelling! I am so, so lucky that my pregnancy has been going this well. Mentally, I am doing so well. One of the best choices I made was to go to therapy during this pregnancy. I have learned so much about myself and I feel like it has made me a better person. I am looking forward to the boys' arrival so much now! I absolutely can't wait (well I can...) for them to get here! And speaking of which, my midwife is so pleased with how things are going, she said that as long as I make it to 36 weeks, we are still a go for our homebirth! YAY! Granted, we are hoping they stay in as long as possible. But it does take a weight off to have that week cushion. I am still imagining them coming after 38 weeks around the 30th of December. Even still, it is so hard to imagine that in as little as 4 weeks, we could be meeting our boys! So excited! Not to mention that this is my absolute favorite time of year. I love Thanksgiving and all the Christmas preparations. It just makes me happy inside. I can't wait to watch Christmas movies with Brandon and Nathan. I can't wait to see Nathan's excited face as he sees the tree. What a beautiful time of year to be pregnant!
What the babies are up to: Per the ultrasound, we know that they are a little over 4lbs each! They are quickly growing now and filling out nicely. These last few weeks will be spend packing on the pounds and getting ready for their births! The downy layer of lanugo will begin to fall off this week. Their movements are slowing down because they are quickly running out of space!
