prego update!!!

so here are some maternity shots that todd did! the first set was 27 weeks (when i was still small and only had one chin :O) the second shoot was a fun one downtown, i felt like one of todd's clients...we had a blast. that was at 31 weeks(again, i feel like that was ages and many many pounds and inches ago :o). Enjoy the pictures!!

a little pregnancy update: this has been the healthiest twin pregnancy (besides a bunch of discomfort, gas, backache ect :o), my doctor said "model twin pregnancy...so i guess that is good!! i am now almost 36 weeks (i thought i was 36, but i think i was 2 days off on my due date..anyway). There has been no gliches, no hospital visits, no bedrest, nothing....until last night!! Todd of course had a wedding today (saturday). But i definately went into labor last night. We waited here until contractions were 3-4 minutes apart and then went in, hoping to either stop labor or have the babies by 2pm, so todd could work and not miss the birth of our babies! God was so good and gracious!! Though i was in some pretty intense labor, i wasn't progressing really fast, so the doctor gave us the option of trying to stop it, because even though she is confidant the babies would be healthy at this point and we don't have to stop labor, with our schedule and the fact they aren't quite full term (full term twins is 36-38 weeks) we had that option. So all in all we were at the hospital 5 hours, and after one dose of terbutaline, contractions had slowed to a stop and we were ab le to come home!!! yea!!! i don't know if i will make it to my scheduled induction date (May 19th), but we were glad to give them a few more days to grow and todd to be able to work and not miss anything huge! God is good!! so now we wait :o)...can't wait to meet these little guys!
