So much baby.

The OB laughed when I asked if I was bigger than done and his response was "OH YEAH!" I've got seven and a half pounds of baby, an extra placenta and an extra amniotic sac. You know how twins have less room to grow so they often end up a little small for their age at birth? Well, someone has to be the exception. I'm 31 weeks with babies measuring 32 and 33 weeks (this is all in comparison to the average singleton.) Holy crap, no wonder I'm so huge. There's no way they're going to let me go to 38 weeks. We'll schedule the section next time (vaginal birth is now completely out of the question) and it'll be in a month or so. He even said he'd be perfectly comfortable with them coming out in just another couple of weeks. Getting to the office is a big pain and I'm doing fine so I don't need to go in for another two weeks.

Ha! Of course not! And we never will be ...

But I guess we just need some diapers, a co-sleeper, and some boobs and we'll be good until we figure out what in the world is happening. I've got the boobs so that just leaves diapers and a co-sleeper to get soon.

My BFF just had twins. 7 weeks early (I think). One was almost 7lbs, the other about 8.

Wow, that does seem crazy huge!

Supposedly multiples grow faster in the earlier weeks than singletons and their lungs develop faster, too. They must know their mothers would never even entertain the idea of a 40-week gestation.

Yeah, she was crazy huge. She is still in her maternitity clothes. BUT, both boys are healthy and doing great! I shudder to think of how big she would have been if she went to term.....
