What a difference two weeks make...

We met Mrs. R at Dr. Jolly's office for the scan this afternoon and I think her baby bump doubled in size!  Two weeks ago when we saw her I was shocked by how small her baby bump was and how awesome she looked for being nearly 36 weeks pregnant.  Today, I still think she looked awesome, but she clearly looked like she was ready to give birth on Monday.  Yes, this Monday.  Yes, November 7th!! The cesarean is scheduled for 8AM.  That is less than 35 hours from right now:)  Hours...we are counting in hours now!  How awesome is that?  I love that there is a set time - its just how I am.

TT was our little rock star.  In two weeks, she/he grew an amazing 25% and now weighs in at 5 lbs.  The wait was well worth it for that kind of weight gain!!  TT was so proud of his/her weight gain that she/he flipped upright.  TT's desire to stand up tall means that she/he is breech and is the reason for the c-section.

TO is now mearusing 5 lbs 11 oz, not too shabby of a weight gain for this stage in the pregnancy!  Let's hope they continue to gain at this pace outside in the real world.

There are no cute pictures to show you from the scan.  We barely saw their faces, as their world is a bit cramped right now and it was tough to figure out much of what was going on in there.  Dr. Jolly tried to show us both faces.  I could make out that what he was pointing out as TT's face was real, but it was a hard sell to believe he found TO's face.  We did see two very well defined spines, which was pretty cool.  And despite Lee's best efforts, he could not figure out the sex of either baby.

So, now we wait just a few more hours!  Any suggestions (besides sleep) on what we should be doing to waste away the next 35 hours?

OMG, I really hope that our surro-momma goes into labor and we have to rush to the hospital, because if I have to count down from 35 hours, I'll go cra-a-azy! Let me know how you decide to pass the time, though, because I feel like we'll have to be doing the same here in a week or so!

I dreamed about your babies last night ... the first one was a boy and then I woke up ... go figure. Monday sounds like a great day for you to become parents.

I agree with Jeni. Bask in the moment of having just hours to wait for what you've wanted for so long...just awesome!
