Update

Nothing much to tell. I cannot sit at the computer for long so I probably won't post again until the babies are born... maybe a belly pic. I am on bed rest and am taking medicine for contractions but everything is working fine. On Sunday, I will be 35 weeks along and I will go off the medicines and can move around as much as I want/can. I go to two baby appointments per week and the babies are doing really well and are both head down. WARNING, TMI AHEAD: The last couple of appointments, Dr/Nurse has been able to actually feel Lily's head. They don't think I'll go much longer. I am now a whopping 175 lbs (12.5 stone) and can barely walk because of the weight, puffy feet and legs that turn purple, having 2 heads down very low with one pinching a nerve in my right leg. THANK GOODNESS MUM IS HERE! We are in the home stretch. The bags are packed and Paul is getting a few last-minute necessities as we speak. My WONDERFUL friends are throwing me a shower on Saturday and then, it is just the waiting game. Pray for healthy, happy babies (and that the epidural works well).

Good luck! I hope all goes well. Maybe I will see you on Monday! I work then... or wednesday or thursday - so deliver any of those days okay?
If it makes you feel better (or worse - sorry) we can feel most heads at 34-35 weeks

So, I am assuming from that pic, the babies arrived! How are you? What day did they come? Congrats! Now the fun begins!

Cutest widdle babies ever! Love the picture, and how they both fit on your lap so nicely.
