36 weeks

I realized that I haven't put any updates about the babies on the blog since we found out what we were having (thanks to Fb, it is easy to keep everyone informed of their progress).  But I thought I would put some belly pics and stats on here anyway.

I'm 36 weeks (9 months!), which is fantastic!  After 34 weeks, our next big goal is to make it to 37 weeks, then they will be considered full term! (For twins) Yeah!
I get to go in for weekly sonos to check on their progress and make sure they are growing healthy and strong.  It has been so amazing to see how much they grow from week to week.  We didn't get measurements at this week's appt. (they take those bi-weekly) but at 35 weeks they weighed in at over 10 lbs combined!!!  Can't believe I'm carrying that much baby!  Baby boy was 5lbs 7oz and baby girl was 4lbs 9oz.  She has a little bit of catching up to do. ;)  I would love for them to be each be over  5 1/2 lbs at birth.
This is my baby belly at 7 months. :)

 Baby girl is very low and on my left (baby A) and when she moves it feels more like bubbles and tickles down low, but she can pack quite a punch when she wants to.  Baby boy (baby b) is on the right and higher, and I feel his jabs and rolls with more force.  Now they mainly squirm around as they are quickly running out of room.  At 35 weeks I was measuring 39 weeks, so we will see how much longer they hold on.:)  Getting so very excited to meet and hold them!
