The countdown is on...33 weeks!

It has been another good week in the hospital. As you can tell by my picture below, the babies are getting big. Everyday I look at myself and wonder how much larger can I get. I am so thankful that I don't have stretch marks yet, hoping they stay away!! The babies have been busy as usual moving a lot. Harper has a foot in my rib. Thankfully her kicks are not too violent yet.

Dr. H still hasn't given us an indication as to when he will do a c-section. I'm assuming he will give us an indication when I'm 35 weeks. So much can change in such a short amount of time that he won't commit to a date just yet. My goal is to make it to 36 weeks.

How Far Along: 31 Weeks
Size of baby: Last week they measured Avery at 3 lb. 14 oz. and Harper at 3 lb. 8 oz. My high risk doctor will measure them again next week.
Gender: Two precious girls...Harper Faith Kendle and Avery Ryan Kendle
Maternity Clothes: Still wearing my pj's.
Weight gain: 21 pounds total. Unfortunately no weight gain this week.
Sleep: Still sleeping really well.
Symptoms: None this week.
Cravings: No cravings!
Best moment this week: Finally getting a good picture of Harper. Avery is not in a good position for a profile picture, so I don't have one to share of her. Here is Harper!
Pregnancy Highlights:
They are rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and their skeleton is hardening. The bones in their skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for them to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as their brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
