Camera shy

28 week ultrasound pictures and this is what the twins decided to do. Believe me, they weren't sleeping. Not after the Eggos I fed them for breakfast. They were moving around like crazy all morning and during the ultrasound. But when it came to picture time this is what they both decided to do. Jaime was laughing so hard because this is what he does in the morning. He hates mornings and walks into the bathroom with his arms over his face mumbling, "I hate mornings, it's too bright." So either they are taking after their father or they are shy. Believe me, they are not shy if they are our kids. 

"Thor" is measuring about 3lbs and "Twila" is about 2lbs, 12 oz. Dr said they are looking great and we'll see him again in 3 weeks. "Thor" is still breech  and "Twila" in head down. Last week my OB said she doesn't see me going past 36 weeks which would put me delivering around June 23. That's two months people! 

I'm starting to feel a lot more tired. My feet are very swollen and my legs are very sore. I told Jaime that my body feels like it did when I was training for the marathon. I'm not sleeping well and I just can't get comfortable sleeping, sitting or standing. But it's all good, I have two beautiful babies growing inside of me, that is all that matters. They can beat me up all they want.

My shower is Saturday and  I can't wait to see all my family and friends. I feel so blessed.

My daughter was born at 28 weeks and she weighed exactly that...2 lbs. 2 oz. (She's now 4 and perfect!)
T2 will be here before you know it!

When did ultrasound pictures start to look like that???????
You can actually see the babies instead of a big black dot.

Whao, I marvel. I marvel.

Congratulations again girlie. I'm excited for you, holy crap 2 months and you are physically going to be holding your babies!!!

Wow, I am always amazed to see these ultrasound pictures. Just amazing. When I was carrying my twins (now 37 years old) I had an xray at 32 weeks to prove I was carrying two. Only saw two black silhouettes face to face. They were born at 39 weeks and weighed in at 7 lbs. and 6 lbs. My breach one was on top, thank God, and had them normal without c-section. It seems like the dark ages compared to the way things are now. I am so excited for you and what lies ahead. I hope your shower is fantastic on Saturday. May you get cases and cases of diapers!!:)
My only advice to you is to rest, and keep your feet up when you can.
