Here I am at 37 weeks and 6 days and on the eve of meeting our twins. Today has felt like a dream, where I am just floating through a series of events, not fully engaged. My nerves are starting to kick in and I know there won't be much sleep going on in our house tonight! We've been doing our last bit of preparations to get our house ready to bring home two newborns, but of course it never feels like it's enough.

For about the last month my belly has measured at around 45 weeks and my weight has remained the same. The babies have continued in their growth, and if they are still on track then our girl should be about 7 pounds and our boy should be about 6 1/2 pounds. We'll see tomorrow what their actual weight is, and how much weight I'll lose just from giving birth!!

Here are my "biggest" pictures from this week and last week. I was expecting to get a bit bigger, but am happy that this is where I've topped out! My belly doesn't look all that big, but I sure feel it whenever it's time to move! Just this last week I was asked by another cashier if I knew someone who was having a baby when I purchased some infant pajamas. I just looked down at my belly and said, "Yeah, me."
So hopefully my next post will be a wonderful story of an easy and stress-free birth! Skip and I are certainly looking forward to meeting our babies and introducing them to their large and supportive group of family and friends!

And just for fun, here's a picture of what my view has been for the last month or so, bending forward slightly to see my swollen feet! Enjoy! :)
