Today's the big day!!

We only have a few more hours left to go before Carson and Avery will be here. I can't believe that it's time. This pregnancy actually went by really fast even though the last 5 weeks were spent on bedrest. We are excited and nervous at the same time. It's so weird to sit here and look at the clock and know that in 4 hours we will be delivering our babies! I can't wait to see their faces and hear them crying! It's going to be amazing! Here is one last picture of my belly taken today at 37 weeks.

This is our last picture together as just a married couple with no kids.... crazy!
Again, please excuse the stretch marks, but lets face it people..... there's two babies in there!
We will post pictures of the babies when they are here. Please pray that everything will go smoothly today and that the babies will come out pink and screaming!

Just a few more days....

We officially only have a few days left before we are parents. My blood pressure has continued to increase over this past week, and Wed. night I was admitted to the hospital. My BP at home was 150's/100's so my dr. decided that it was time to come into the hospital. It was still high when we got here Wed, and my dr was very close to delivering them that night. But thankfully we waited a little while and my BP came down over night. He has decided to keep me here till delivery which will be Tuesday 9/29/09!! (my mom, by the way, is so excited about the fact that they will be born on 9/29/09..... she has been hoping throughout my whole pregnancy that they would be born on this day, she likes the way it sounds.... crazy MiMi) I had a sono with the perinatologist yesterday and he recommened that we deliver at 37 weeks. Both he and my dr. feel that it's not worth the risk of trying to go past 37 weeks. So we finally set a date yesterday for the big day (it sounds like I'm getting married). The babies looked great when they did the sono, they both measured at 5lbs. 9oz. So hopefully they will weigh close to 6 lbs each. We'll find out how accurate the sono measurements really are! So we are just going to wait patiently a couple more days for our little babies arrival. Being here in the hospital the last few nights has really made me thankful that I was able to be at home for most of my bedrest. There is just nothing like sleeping in your own bed. There are some women here that have been on hospital bedrest for months.... I can't even imagine! Thanks again for all of your prayers, texts, and emails. We really appreciate all of the support and encouragement. We will let yall know when they get here or if anything changes before next Tuesday!

Still cooking!!

I'm happy to report that Avery and Carson are still cooking away!! I am 35 weeks as of yesterday. When I found out I was having twins, I prayed I would make it this far and here we are... still pregnant! Thank you Lord for allowing me to carry them this far! On sono last week (34 weeks) they measured: Avery 5lbs 5oz and Carson 5lbs 1oz. They only measure them every few weeks, so the next time we get a weight on them may be at delivery! They are moving and kicking so much.... we can't wait to see what they will be like! My dr. appt on monday went well. My BP has been staying pretty steady at 140-150's/80-90's. The bedrest hasn't been too bad so far, only a couple of weeks left! My dr. would like to get to 37 weeks if we can... but I'm still hoping that he will let me go to 38. We will just have to see what my BP/labs/urine dips do over these next two weeks. So we are just waiting as patiently as we can for these two little babies to make their entracne into the world! Thanks for your prayers!!

Two sweet faces and one huge belly...

Avery (top) already has Shane's head shape and Carson (bottom) looks like he is puckering his lips.... Aren't they so sweet?
