Bonding is the best part!
by: April

I am just entering my 37th week and I am making sure to do the same thing: bond with my girls before they arrive. Each night I sit my exhausted self down and talk to them, explaining that all the complaining I do about pregnancy is NOT to be listened to by the babies themselves.

For a few days now I've said "girls I want you to take as much time as you need to mature and prepare for life out here. So if you have to stay in there for (...sigh) a few more days or (...yikes!) weeks, it's okay. And if you need more space to grow, then (gulp...) my belly will get bigger for you. I want your little bodies to be grow plump and hardy so I will lead the way with my growing body... don't be shy, there is plenty of room! (Sigh.) My uterus is ready to carry your weight (whine...) and my belly is ready to stretch as far as you need (...whimper). Speaking of hardy, your continued squirming and (OOF) kicking is appreciated because it lets me (ow!) know you are strong and healthy. And it amuses your (Ouch...) big sister and your daddy to feel and see you wiggle and dance and play enough to (WHOA!) set this big (and ever-bigger) belly of mine bouncing like a trampoline! Girls, you are amazing and I can't wait until you're ready to come out and meet me. I love you."

I hope it works... their weights are ok but I am still worried about complications that can arise from early delivery. At the very least it makes me feel better! My husband says it melts his heart every time he sees me collapsed on the couch exhausted, sore, and pinned under my painfully-enormous belly BUT with a smile on my face as I talk to the girls. I am happy to see that you did the same thing!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful picture, I hope you are well!

Wow you look great. I thought I would be one of the fortunate ones to not get the stretch marks..well I did not get any but since I was so small I do have that flabby skin :(.

Good luck with your delivery. I delivered my twin girls on Dec 13th via C Section.
