35 Weeks and Some Swollen Feet

I've made it to 35 weeks! I'm hoping to make it at least another week if not two! I want healthy, fat babies. My feet have been so swollen lately. Sometimes, I look down at them and think "those are not MY feet!" I also no longer have ankles.. and I'm getting to the point where no matter what position I'm in, I'm so uncomfortable. In church today, I had to take a walk around the building part way through because I couldn't sit any longer! I won't even get started on what my nights are like lately. Anyway, I'm just very grateful that I've made it this far with no complications and no early labor. The latest on the babies is that they are still growing bigger and bigger- but baby boy is breech and has been for the last 3 weeks, so it looks like I'll be having a C section unless he decides to be a good little boy and flip over. We'll see.

Maternity Pictures

Our friends were nice enough to take some maternity pictures for us when I was about 33 weeks. They turned out really cute. It's weird to look at pictures of myself with such a huge belly.

We Present.. The Baby Room (Almost Finished)

Here's the baby room. Let me just say, it is difficult to arrange a room with TWO cribs in it! Those things take up lots of space! We bought the cribs new and got everything else on KSL! I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Now we just need to add a few decorations to the walls and we're good to go!

33 Weeks

Hard to believe I'm 33 weeks now. Our friends took some pregnancy pics for us.. so.. here's a sneak preview. Plus, I needed a 33 week picture anyway. I'm definitely feeling the uncomfortable parts of pregnancy now. My feet swell up about half way through the day everyday.. and it feels like these babies are up pushing on my lungs- I cannot breathe very well. I also get this weird pain in my hands- it feels like i have arthritis or something. Anyway, enough with the complaining. My doc says everything looks good. The babies are estimated to weigh about 4 lbs. 13 oz. (baby boy) and 4 lbs. 1 oz. (baby girl). Yah.. the boy is definitely stealing all the food in there! I'm hoping to make it a few more weeks before having them! Plus, I still have a lot to do to get ready! It still doesn't seem real that they will be here in about a month! ahhh!

Our Babies Have Hair!

 I know this is probably a silly thing to post, but.. I'm just so glad.. our babies have hair! I didn't think you could REALLY see the hair on an ultrasound.. but it turns out, you can! It's getting harder and harder to get a good picture of their faces, since they're kind of squished in there. Anyway, I love that we get so many ultrasounds- it reminds me of how crazy this whole thing is.. and what a miracle it is that there are two babies in my belly!

Indoor Surfing.. and an Injury

On Friday, John and I decided to use his gift certificate to the Flowrider. I had given him the gift certificate for his birthday 2 YEARS ago.. and had been bugging him to use it.. so we decided to just go by ourselves. Don't worry, I watched from the sidelines. John got to try it out about twice before dislocating his shoulder which landed us in the emergency room. His other shoulder has dislocated, but has always gone back in on it's own.. this time was the other shoulder and it didn't exactly go in on it's own. It needed the help of some pain meds and a doc. 4 hours later, we were on our way out the door, with a normal looking shoulder. John was brave. Needless to say, our next trip to the flowrider will probably include lying down and boogie boards  instead.

Easter 2011

 Easter was just me, John, Mike, and Amanda this year. Tony, Nick, and Christin were gone camping. We still had fun. We had a nice ham dinner, hid eggs, found eggs, dyed eggs, and played games. It was pretty fun. Hope everyone had a great Easter!
