28 weeks and counting...

We have hit 28 weeks and I feel like I should be having these babies TOMORROW!!! Well, it's not quite that bad but the heat is not helping... I am so grateful for my air con this week. I don't think I actually look THAT huge but I am starting to waddle like a duck and getting up and down takes a couple of minutes! ;) LOL I am having all the usual delights of being pregnant... heartburn like the fires of hell, dead tired by 4pm and don't even get me started about haemorrhoids!!!!!! Oh, is that too much information? Sorry! ;) I have had another ultra sound (I think my ob/gyn is paranoid but apparently with mono-chorial twins they have to monitor the placenta very closely and make sure we don't get the twin-to-twin transfer thing happening). So far so good and all is looking happy and healthy. They are both about 850g now and growing well, though one seems to keep doing back flips and won't stay head down... my doctor says there is still plenty of room for them (I beg to differ!) and plenty of time before we start worrying about position so fingers crossed they will both behave and I don't have to have a c-section. I finally have some fat belly pics to share! My DH took these and I was actually pretty pleased with them... and they have the very barest of photo shopping too!!! Other than that all is well at our house. We have been staying home mostly but have had a few days out... just your run of the mill holiday activities; shopping; a trip to the beach; a visit to the pool; play with friends; that sort of thing. The place looks like a bomb hit it as usual but I am going all Angelina Jolie and letting the children "express their creativity". That means they are running amok and their are toys EVERYWHERE and there are pencils and papers and glue and cutting out all over the place! That's the price you pay for peace and I think it is totally worth it at the moment! LOL ;) I still can't quite believe this little darling is starting Kindergarten (two full days a week) tomorrow. Or that this little brat is Grade 2. Or most of all that this charmer is 17 in a couple of weeks and can get his drivers' licence!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkk!!! I have been doing some scrapping but I can't share most of it yet. Here is my first Embellished DT stuff though. These were for the new Be Inspired blog. The first one is that charmer ^^^^ up there when he was only 6 months old!!!! Oh and these are Pixie photos! This one was for a Random Challenge... Scrap your Goals / Resolutions or your Word for 2009. I hope you will pop over to Embellished and play along with the new Week to Week Extravaganza. There are cool prizes every month and the first challenge has been posted. I had better get off here and start getting dinner organised... I still hate Day Light Savings with a passion... PLEASE VOTE NO ON MAY 16TH!!!!!! ;) Hope you and yours are well and 2009 is shaping up to be all that you hoped it would be. Thanks for stopping by.
