35 weeks

Photobucket

Everywhere I go these days people ask me when I'm due. Actually, that would be too nice. They usually just make comments like, looks like your due anyday now, or you look like your ready to pop. I'm so large. This is Sundays pic and I'm sure I'm even bigger now. Every Friday when Paul gets home, I ask him if I've grown and the answer is always yes. The babies are measuring around 5 1/2 pounds each and are both still breech. I'm preparing myself for a c-section, but am holding onto a glimmer of hope that perhaps they could still turn. At my OB appointment I measured a whopping 45 cm!!! I'm starting to wonder how much bigger I can get in the next few weeks. I feel like my stomach is at maximum capacity. I'm also starting to get a fuller face...not a look I love. I wouldn't mind putting on 60 pounds if I knew I carried it everywhere else but my face. Oh well...such is life. I'm totally excited to meet these two soon.

As uncomfortable as they are making you, they truly are low maintenance right now. Hang in there!

You look gorgeous! Can't wait to get the big news. So excited for you guys!

Face chub is my least favorite pregnancy weight gain too. I don't see yours though. I just see one hot mamma, housing two babies and that's just incredible!

Julia, you look amazing! I can't believe it's almost time. Presley was breech too so I had a c-section with her. It's really not so bad. We will be praying that all goes well. Congrats!

Kristen said...

You look AMAZING! Still tiny as ever...even if your belly is measuring 45cm. I am so excited for you! Can hardly wait to see them...and BTW I am SUPER impressed that you have made it to 35 weeks AND that they both weigh over 5 pounds!! That in it's self is amazing!! Love you lots!

Your belly is, admittedly, getting quite large, but the rest of you looks completely not prego. You rock!!!!

Jana said...

I can't believe that your belly is large(45cm) but the rest of your body is the same (skinny). Why do you have to get all the good genes. Can't wait to see those babies!

You look fabulous! :)

Staci said...

You are almost there, I can't believe you will have two more. I am so excited to find out what you are having. I am sure your skin feels like it is going to tear open any second. That is how I felt at the end w/ one. You do look amazing!

You look amazing! I'm totally jealous here. I am measuring 41cm at 38.5 weeks and I'm only carrying one.... thank goodness I am scheduled for Tuesday. The nurses at the kids' doctor's office said I looked like I was carrying a 10 lb. baby. Nice.

Can I just say, you are amazing. Raising 3 girls while daddy is out of town all week and 35 weeks prego w/ twins! Bless you my dear! Had a C-section myself 5 weeks ago. Not the funnest but I feel great now. You are tough and would probably bounce back sooner than me. I can't wait to meet these two either!! Prayers sent your way.

Katie said...

You are ALL BABY..... and so cute. Tell the next person that asks you when you're due that you're not pregnant...lol!

Perry Bunch said...

The Bishop Family said...
