    Aww, how sweet of you all to ask.
    (This also came up on ML's MIA thread)

    First off, the pictures:

    Here is Twin A (Heckle)

    And Twin B (Jeckle)

    This is how big I was a month ago...

    So as you can imagine, I need a wheelbarrow to carry my belly around these days...

    At the last ultrasound, Heckle and Jeckle each weighed nearly 5 lbs, and they're each about 18 inches long, as best as they can tell. According to the charts, they should each be about 3 to 3 1/2 lbs now, so clearly they're taking after husband rather than me in the size department. Phew! Big strapping babies, who will fit in well here in the Land of the Giants (plus one tiny Mom).

    I am into the home stretch now. I'm just about finished training my replacement at work (in a very cool twist, husband is my replacement), and am scheduled to start maternity leave at the end of this week. Good thing too, as my OB-doctor ordered me to bed today. I'm hoping to get through the rest of the week at the office, and then take the doctor's bed rest order seriously. With husband right there sharing my desk, I'm a bit less worried about breaking the rules for the next few days.

    I've had a couple of premature labour scares over the last few weeks, but things seem to have settled down a bit, so I'm just biding my time. Due to medical policy, OB-doctor won't schedule my C-section until I've reached 37 weeks, so it's set for Sept 4th. However, the nurses at Labour and Delivery are all betting that it will be 2 more weeks at the most. I'm siding with the nurses...I just don't think I can hold out another 6 weeks.

    Janet, Star, I have a gut feeling it's boys as well. I have made sure that the ultrasound technicians have not given anything away, because neither husband nor I really wants to know until the time is here, but my heart tells me they're boys. Heck, if they're girls they will be wearing a lot of blue jumpers with airplanes on them, because I seem to be gravitating to boyish things...

    And Janet, Thadeus is a VERY cool name.

    Even though I haven't been posting much, you're all in my thoughts every day. I have made husband promise to post an update when the babies are born, so I won't leave you hanging.

    Trinity, how exciting! Nothing cuter than little twins! If they're already around 5 lbs. each though, I'll bet you'll never make it to Sept. 4th!

    I may have missed it but are these going to be identical twins? Or is it possible that you could have one boy and one girl? I don't envy you having to come up with four names though, or really EIGHT names ... four first names and four middle names!

    Yeah I think those are boys. The only thing I can remember well from "my" twins is that one of them was named Thadeus. It was written on some sort of IV Yes I know...odd. But it is also crazy odd that you turned up pregnant with twins as soon as I got out of the

    Oh, Trinity! Bless your beautiful baby loving soul! I couldn't have any babies and am so sad my twins were not born of my body. I couldn't do something my golden retriever could! I think of you often and hope all will go well. You are so pretty and so powerful. You are creating magic, did you know that?

    That must be as opposed to women like ME who got massive bellies. Where I get my haircut they are still talking about my belly when I was pregnant with my 10 pound, 5 ouncer. I gained only 26 pounds (all in my belly) and they said I was the biggest pregnant stomach they'd ever seen.

    You look great, Trinity. Hope the next few weeks go well for you.
