Amazing how the twins have made it this far considering the fact that I’ve had numerous scares of going into preterm labor.  My doc was surprised that I even made it past 34 weeks!!!!

Last Thursday, we had our last ultra-sound with our high-risk doctor.  He couldn’t make out if my cervix has dilated more because Simone’s head was so low.  As he put it, she’s half way down my vagina!!! LOL!  I think he meant birth canal. haha.  Both babies’ heads are down and they are weighing in at 5lbs and 5 oz EACH!!!! 

I have a doctor’s appointment today at 2pm today.   My OB is going to check my cervix and will be scheduling our induction for this weekend.  I’m going to be 38 weeks on Friday and if I don’t go into labor before then, I’m going to have to be induced. 

This is basically the last week of my pregnancy.  How am I feeling!?!??! Well, I want them out already!!! I’m so over being pregnant and waddling every where!!  I want to feel like myself again.  I miss being active and working out!!! I especially miss running : (   I’m counting down the days until I can get back into my running shoes again.  Seriously. haha.  I know what week I’ll be able to run again if the delivery goes well.  Besides feeling like myself again, the only thing I’ll miss about being pregnant is feeling the babies move around in my tummy : )

What a crazy experience this has been!!!!! I can’t believe it’s all coming to an end and the REAL marathon is about to begin.  I’m excited to meet my little ladies and see how they look like.  I’m hoping for a smooth delivery and two healthy babies : )
