Ah yes...although it looks as though I may explode at any moment, I actually was only 35 weeks along.
We hung in there week after week. I'm 37 weeks here, but was measuring what would be equivalent to a 46 week pregnancy!!
This picture was taken on October 31st...just 5 short days before their birth day.
We made it!!! 39 weeks and even the doctors agreed those little girls would have happily stayed longer. Because of my previous c-sections (and the fact that at any given moment my belly was just going to burst open) we had a scheduled c-section. Upon delivery I was measuring 49 weeks pregnant!!!!
But just look what came from all that stretching! Although I had given birth several times, there was nothing like this feeling. I still feel so honored and humbled to have been allowed to grow and nurture these little girls. Looking back, I have absolutely no idea how we made it through with no complications, but we did. My girls went home with me weighing 7lbs 1oz and 6lbs 7oz. That is unheard of for twins...God never ceases to amaze me! You just gotta love these trips down memory lane...sigh.
