turning heads...

alright folks its official my belly is large and beutiful. i found out i am now turning heads and being asked how it feels to be overdue. yeah strangers ask that question... i measure a whopping 41.5cm which is what a women with one baby would feel like a week and a half overdue but me i have 7-9 weeks left. don't get me wrong i am still on the path of growing big healthy babies so having them inside is what we want but where do people come up with these things.. i decided to make you a list and hope you never become the kind of person to do any of these things...

Never ask a pregnant woman.. (that you don't know really, really well) espcially someone expecting twins...
1. Are you overdue? Just don't!
2. Do you have stretchmarks ? Since when would that be anyones business?!
3. When are you being induced? Seriously.
4. Can you sleep or even move at night? Maybe your husband should install a poll for you that hangs from the ceiling so you can get out of bed better.. uhh yeah enough said.
5. Probably not any clothes that fit you any more hey? No your right there aren't but don't ask!
6. Your huge, big, large, massive - anything along those lines.
7. Wow your feet are really really swollen - really?? i hadn't noticed.. did it occur to you because I DON'T WEAR SHOES ANYMORE??? Dumb.

Ok I am done. Other than all that I am feeling good. Of course I'm feeling full of baby because I am full of 2 babies but I am excited that they are moving and doing so well. I had a fetal assesment yesterday at the hospital I will deliver at and it was so pleasant and fun. I got to see the boys and hear there heart beats and even hear the blood moving through the cord which was so cool. They both weigh a big over 3lbs and are moving lots. Everything we would hope for. Baby A does not have his head down though which he needs to do right now his little bum covers my cervix. Baby B is head down and has his bum in Baby A's face. Litteraly. This is funny. We got a shot of Baby B's parts (scrotum) right on Baby A's nose. It was hilarious. So he is sitting on his brother. Maybe a sign of whats to come. Ahh at least they are keeping each other occupied. I got cute shots of their little faces. I will try to scan in pics later but am not sure they will scan well. We will see. Anyways yes we are all doing well and can't believe in 7 weeks or so we will meet our little guys face to face. Can't wait!

I stumbled across your blog somehow a week ago and am really enjoying it! I have two little kids of my own and my favourite experience is pregnancy and the anticipation of birth and the arrival of the baby. I'm so glad everything is going well for your pregnancy. I keep worrying that I will have twins one day (probably when we're trying for our 4th and last child and end up with 5!!) -- my mom is a twin and my granny delivered the largest set of twins to that date (in 1947) in Victoria -- 7+ lbs each!! But you make me think it wouldn't be so bad!

I hope everything will continue to go well for you and that you can enjoy every exciting & tiring moment! And you look great!!!! Don't even listen to when people make those off-hand comments. My friend's husband called me "big mama" when I was pregnant with our first child and it REALLY bothered me, especially since I'd only gained about 25 pounds. YOu should be glad people make comments, because they probably wouldn't if they thought you were really big.

Anyway, that rant was supposed to make you feel better, but it's probably done just the opposite... I just wanted to let you know I'm enjoying your blog and can't wait for more baby news.

People's heads are turning because they notice your beautiful face first, they must notice your prego belly second. :) You're looking good and seem to be in good spirits. I can't believe you're so close to meeting your boys! Keep truckin'!

Ha! I can't tell you how many people asked me if I was overdue or said, "Any day now?" -from the time I was 25 WEEKS!!! No, I am not kidding. I feel for you. All the annoyances will just be funny memories once you meet your little guys. Twin boys are just the best. Really.

PS- the above comment was from me, JB of BoreYouWithIt. It's just that I couldn't get my link to come up on blogger for some reason...

Heather, I really don't care what anyone says. I am amazed at how great you look! I believe that you feel all swollen, don't wanna wear shoes and believe that clothes are not really your friend...HOWEVER, you are a short girl who has TWO baby BOYS in you! And it isn't like you are only 3 months pregnant! Those babies have to go SOMEWHERE. Anyway, I really think you look GREAT! And your attitude is even better! Can't wait to hear about your boys.

I believe I'm sensitive about what I might ask a prego lady.
But I'm tempted to ask big-bellied MEN, "When are you due??"

Beautiful b/w photos!
