36 weeks

This pregnancy has flown by.  Chris and I were just talking about how we don't know how it is already November and we will be welcoming the babies so soon!  I guess when you are working and taking care of your other kiddos there isn't much time to sit around and just focus on being pregnant!

I'm about 36 1/2 weeks now and feeling great.  My belly is huge and pretty much any movement is difficult, but besides that I am doing really well.  I was put on medical leave from work about 3 weeks ago and it has been a huge blessing.  I am not technically on bed rest, and was put on leave due to some legalities at work, etc. and not my health so that is a really good thing.  I can still do whatever I feel like doing (which isn't a whole lot) and am able to sleep in a little and take a nap during the day.  Huge blessings for sure.  I also got all of the feeling back in my hand after I stopped working, so that has been really, really awesome.

Both babies are still breech, so we have a c section scheduled for the 26th.  I am terrified of the surgery and still spend a lot of time praying the little girl will turn so I can just delivery them and not need surgery.  But, have a peace about it and know that if we end up in a section it is for a reason and as long as everyone is healthy it doesn't matter how they make their big debut.  Speaking of big, I am really interested to see how big they are.  I think they will both be near 7 pounds, but I could be wrong.  Just my guess.  I personally think it would be awesome if they were both about 8 pounds, but we'll see...I don't think that will happen.

My belly measures about 54 inches around, which is insane and not many clothes fit at all.  If you were to see me at any given time I am pretty sure at least part of my belly would be exposed, I just can't help it!

Here is a picture, only 11 days left!!!!

You look SO much better than I did! If you have 2 8 pound babies...I don't even know what to think. I cannot immagine. Keep it up, REST, REST, and REST some more!
