A Visit from Aunt Kaitlyn

On Thursday evening Harper and Keegan got to meet Aunt Kaitlyn for the first time!

Even though Kaitlyn arrived late Thursday night, she was thrown right into taking care of the twins.  She stayed up late doing feedings each night and did great!  It was really sad to see her leave but hopefully we'll get to see her again at Christmas.

One Week Old

Harper & Keegan are 1 week old today!  The past week is definitely a blur.  I barely remember anything that's happened since they've been born and have not slept much at all.  Even though I'm running on empty, it's been a wonderful week!

Here are a few pictures from bath time the other day.  Harper seemed to enjoy it a bit more than Keegan.

A Day Full of Appointments!

This morning I had an appointment with Dr. Z.  I'll be 35 weeks on Sunday and they measured me at 44 weeks!  She said I'm larger than most people are full term!  I am barely starting to dilate which is good and they're hoping I can make it to my scheduled c-section date.  Don't bother asking when the date is though because we aren't telling. :) Sorry!  I'm still not technically on complete bed rest now but I might as well be.  Dr. Z wants me to scale back what I'm doing even more which means I can't do much of anything.  Guess I need to find a good show to start watching on Netflix!

I also had an appointment with Dr. G today.  He did another in depth ultrasound to see how the babies are growing.  Both of them are still doing well!  Baby boy is estimated at 5 lbs 11 oz and baby girl is estimated at 5 lbs 9 oz.  The estimates can be off by up to 1 lb either way but even still, hopefully they'll be 6 lbs or so when they're born.  Dr. G is also hoping I'll make it to the scheduled date.

Next week I'm scheduled to see Dr. Z on Wednesday for a regular checkup and Dr. G on Thursday for another ultrasound so hopefully we'll get another good report from both of them!

34 weeks 1 day

Well we've officially made it to October and the babies will definitely be here this month!  It's crazy to think they'll be here within the next 4 weeks!

Here's another picture update of how I look!

October 1, 2012 - 34w 1 day
I go to both doctors on Wednesday so it'll be nice to get an update on how the babies are doing.  I can't wait to find out what Dr. G estimates they weigh right now!
