So, I know, I know, it's been a while since I posted, the most recent update from yesterday (31 weeks) is that everything is going really well, both with the babies and me. As of 3 weeks ago both babies weighed in just under 3 lbs, and as of yesterday they're now tipping the scales at 4 lbs a piece! If I make it to 37 weeks (our goal), we could have a couple of 6 pounders on our hands! Fine by me! Although I may have to deal with not actually having the ability to walk anymore until after I give birth - it's difficult enough as it is right now! After my 28 week ultrasound, my Dr. (Dr. Gi-Gi Streiff) was a little concerned about Ollie's amniotic fluid levels, so that's why she had me come in a week earlier than scheduled for the next big ultrasound. Just as she suspected it might, the fluid leveled itself back out and everything looks great with the babies. I am still right on track with my weight and doing everything I can to eat right, and if by "eating right" you mean indulging in ready to bake Tollhouse oatmeal raisin cookies every other night then I'm doing splendidly. :) (It's really all Kristian's fault, he is a bad influence and will be very mad when I go back to actually paying attention to what I eat...). Mostly I do a great job, but sweets really are the devil.
So here's a bunch of photos from the past couple of months, enjoy! I hope 2009 is a healthy and prosperous year for you all! After 2008 it wouldn't hurt, right?! Lots of love, Joanna
28 weeks! And look at my gorgeous babies in their ultrasound photos! Ollie refused to give us a face shot, but as you can tell we got every other kind of shot! Stinker...Ollie's leg and foot, awww.Ollie's, ahem, boy bits....The twin's heads together, they must be plotting! Raya smiling!What a pretty baby girl!!
