Update

Just wanted to come on and give everyone an update (and also for those of you who religiously check in and haven't seen anything new for a VERY LONG time!).

First of all - I'm sure many of you are wondering if I've had the twins yet - and I'm happy to report that they're still with me developing and growing each day :) I'm just about 34 weeks and I'm expecting them to make their grand debut within the next 3-4 weeks. I promise I'll hop on and give the details of their arrival. Physically, things are going rather well.... I'm not HUGE by any means and most people wouldn't suspect that I'm carrying twins - although I really feel the ailments in the evening and will be glad once I can breathe again and get up off of the couch without assistance - LOL
Mentally and emotionally - I think I'm pretty much ready for the upcoming adventure (ok - without really knowing how it's going to be - I'm just ready to keep a positive attitude and take things day by day). We got the nursery all done up this week - we went with a monochromatic pink scheme with green accents for the decor. Here is the crib bedding I won on eBay - and I LOVE it! Isn't it just too cute?! It was for the full 9 piece coordinating set (brand new and I won it for $40.36!) Mama was happy - LOLI'll need to take a picture of the actual nursery all put together and post. I also need to pack my hospital bag (and since it's been over 10 years since I delivered in a hospital I had to do some research to find out what I should take - LOL). and on a final note - the names that we've been kicking around for the girls are.....
Lexi and Aubri :)
so that's about it for now - I'll try and do better and keeping you all updated :)

Shandy! I'm so glad to see a post from you! I've missed you and was wondering whether the girls had made an early appearance. Glad they are staying in as long as they can, LOL! Beautiful bedding set, the nursery is going to be so gorgeous! Good luck with the next few weeks, and looking forward to the first pics of the girls. Oh and don't forget to take a pic of you pregnant with them too! They will love to see that later on in life! Hugs! :)

Congrats on having girls. I am so excited for you! That must be so cool and thrilling to get to have girls after having all boys. Congrats also on the cute bedding. That is just exciting enough in itself! Good luck!

Nice to hear from you again, and nice to hear you made it this far. 34 weeks really sounds like a time you can start feeling safer about delivery.

I love reading your post, it all reminds me so much of my own situation two years ago. Can´t wait to see pics of your girls!

Hey Shandy...
Look at all these friends you have! I'm like the 15th one! Sheeesh! Anyways... I'm so glad to hear that you are ok. I was terribly worried. Good luck with your "birthing process" and please keep us posted! (Your crib set is darling by the way... you always have the cutest ideas!)
Love ya...
Amber

I was just thinking tonight, I wonder if you have had your baby yet? I hope you make it the last two weeks and have a safe delivery.
I can't wait to see their pics.

Hey Shandy! I found your blog through our mutual friend -Anna Marshall. The Nursery is so darling, and congrates on twins! Sounds like you'll have your hands full.

I scrolled through your blog and your papers are beautiful! Way cool. And I can say I knew you once... way back when... : ) lol
