When I first starting documenting my belly size, I did a self photo-shoot in my bathroom mirror, much like many pregnant girls do. I soon realized that there weren't many options for variety in this type of photo, and although I loved my 16 week shot seen here, I started having Dan take pictures of me. We got some good ones, and plenty of the not so flattering ones!

Now I've gone back to basics and even exposed myself a bit more than the 1st time. I'm at the 37 week mark, which is considered full term for twins and I decided to re-do my bathroom mirror shot. I'll be perfectly honest, I was a bit leery of showing some skin (...some? More like a lot!), but was actually pretty excited that my belly still fit in the mirror ;) Who cares about the extra poundage and a few stretch marks, right? I know that down the road, I'll be glad I have these pictures, and hopefully the boys will get a kick out of seeing them someday, too. So here it is... Drumroll, please!

We also have some exciting news. We now have a date for the boys birthday! Unless they have other plans in mind, they will be born on September 2nd. It's kind of weird knowing the exact day, but who knows, maybe it'll come sooner than that! Being considered full-term now, I'm certain that they will be healthy, bouncing babies, whether they decide to wait or not. My next post will most likely be in another week and a half or so, after the boys are born, and after we get home from our hospital stay. Stay tuned for plenty more pictures! I can't wait to capture our new little ones, and family and friends that help us celebrate during their first few days in this world!
