Babies update #12

Our last ultrasound this morning went really well! Both babies haven't budged at all and are both in the same position they were the last time. Sweet little A, who we are naming Piper, is still feet first. It makes sense since I feel like she's going to kick her way out of me! Piper's heart was beating steadily along at 152. She weighs in at 4 lbs. 10 oz. Our baby B, who we've pretty much decided is going to be Lilly, is still head down. Her heart was doing well at around 145. She weighs around 4lbs. 14 oz, just a bit bigger than her womb-mate. :)

I saw my OB next and he said we were pretty much on target for a scheduled c-section, unless I go into labor on my own. I am measuring 43 weeks, for those of you who get that. Definitely overdue if I were only carrying one.

April 7th is the big day for the c-section. I don't have a scheduled time yet and it could change of course if I go into labor before then. All of these things shall be revealed in due time! :)

Tomorrow I go to the hospital for a non-stress test. I'll be happily reading while they watch the girls' hearts for about 45 minutes. I don't go back until next Wednesday, when I'll be 35 weeks! Woo woo!!

Oh and I have to share this great picture we took last night. Shows me in all my belly glory plus a sweet gift from a friend of mine in the great state of Washington. She also lost a son at full term and read Molly's book. While we have never met in person, I do think of her as a close friend. Thanks Becky for the wonderful gift! I love the ladybugs!!

Sweet picture. Love your smile. I love lady bugs too. Piper and Lilly are pretty names. I love the naming process. Praising God for the two little girls and their Mom and Dad.
Blessings,

what a neat diaper cake! You look great, especially measuring at 43 weeks. I don't know how you walk around... I was about to tip with Brayden! And the girls will be almost exactly a year younger than Brayden!!! His birthday is April 9th. I can't wait to see their beautiful faces... praying for everything to continue to go smoothly!

So excited for you! I can't wait! Although C-sections can be difficult recovery, there is some peace of mind in delivery happening so quickly!
It turns out that I'm pregnant again--just over 10 weeks so I'm not through the first trimester yet. . .we'll see what God has in store!

You look Beautiful! I find it interesting how we both lost out last babies about the same time(April 09), and we'll both Lord willing have babies again at the same time. Tho I'll be 41 weeks in early April :-) Our little ones don't ever seem to be in any hurry.
