34 Weeks

We are 34 weeks today!  We haven't received a scan or an update for nearly three weeks, which feels like an eternity at this point in the pregnancy.  We are expecting a new scan on Saturday and are hoping both babies are over 4lbs and everyone gets a healthy report.  Since the moment I found out that we were expecting twins, I have been concerned about their potential early arrival.  While we hope that they stay put for a few more weeks, they are now considered "late-term preemies".   Hitting 34 weeks means the risk of any long-term complications falls.  I have been talking about hitting the 34 weeks for so long that its hard to believe we are actually here!!  Every additional day now is icing on the cake.

The exciting news is that I just booked our tickets.  We are leaving in less than a week.  We will arrive in Delhi at Week 35.  Our plan is to set up the apartment for the arrival of babies and then Lee will just work from there while I find things to keep myself busy.  I am positive that I will be able to find things (M-block is a block from our apt!!) to keep busy while we wait for the babies arrival. 

Besides the obvious excitement that comes with the anticipation of meeting our babies, we are very excited to head back to India.  We loved our time and the memories we made when we were there in the spring and can't wait to make many more memories this time.

How exciting! We are just a couple of weeks behind you. Hopefully you guys will have some quiet time in Delhi before the babies arrive. Then, it will be great excitement. We'd love to meet up while you are here.

How did you get to 34 weeks?!! I have lost time, wow, so good, hang in there little babes ... could be any day, or they could hang until 38 weeks ...I just hope you're here for their births. xxx There has been a run on boys lately, we are due for girl/girl twins ... that's my early guess.
