I made it!!

Since the beginning of this twin pregnancy journey, my goal was to work until April 1st - as long as I wasn't harming the babies or myself in doing so. Well, the weeks kept passing by, I kept working, and at 4:00 yesterday, I met my goal!! 36w1d, ZERO complications! I am still in disbelief that I have made it this far and that in 12 days (or less) these babies will be born!

A few weeks ago, we had maternity pictures taken and they turned out great! Here's a peek at one of my favorites.

This is my 35w picture.

We are feeling pretty ready, the nursery has come together and I *think* we have everything we need for them to come home.
Still on the hunt for the perfect bookshelf to put that lamp on.
We are also looking for a tiny side table to put next to the rocker, but it's certainly not a big deal if we don't find something before they are born. (The marks on the wall behind the cribs are reflections from the branch decal, a few of the leaves are mirrored.)

I am looking forward to a week and a half of relaxing. I was hoping to make a bunch of Thank You cards to have on hand during my time off before they come, but sitting at my craft table wrecks havoc on my swollen feet, ankles and legs so we'll see if I can manage to get any done.

Hope you are having a fabulous Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!
