The countdown Begins....
8 months pregnant!
Not as big as I thought I was going to be!
Big Brother holding his little bros!
Holding their first pairs of shoes!
It is crazy to me that on Friday at 9:30AM I am going to be a Mom. I am not really sure if I REALLY believe it yet...it kind of seems fake. I have this big belly and yet I do not grasp the fact that two humans are in there and are about to come out. I know I feel uncomfortable and am delirious due to lack of sleep, but still. I just can't make myself feel that it is real. I am in for a big reality check on Friday morning!! I am excited but scared. I have never changed a diaper in my life. Thank God for my husband. He has a 5 year old son, and I am so thankful that he knows what to do with babies. I get so scared every time I hold one and they start to cry. Everyone tells me that I will just know what to do when they are my own and that you feel differently. I truly hope so. My hubby is taking paternity leave from work so that he can stay home and help me. I am so lucky because I do not think I could manage on my own. I am new to all of it. I can barely take care of the puppies that Leila just had!! I pray that God gives me guidance and strength through all of this. I am 25 years old and never imagined I would be having twins...let alone identical twins! Since the babies' due date is December 24 and they are coming by C-section a month early, I am not sure if they will be able to come home right away. Everyone is pretty surprised how big the babies measure on my ultrasounds and bets money that they will be able to come home right away. They are both already over 5 pounds each. But no matter what, we are prepared for whatever happens. Please keep us in your prayers!! =)
