I apologize for being absent the last few weeks.  All is still well, I just haven't been able to muster up the energy in the evenings to come down to the computer and write a post (I really need to catch up with the 21st Century and get a laptop).  But tonight I have a little surge of energy, and am getting some laundry done and finally getting some photos uploaded to the computer. 

My shower was this past weekend, hosted by my mom and Jeff's sister.  They did a really great job!  It was a "Two Peas in a Pod" theme, and turned out really cute.  We just had it at our house, in our basement.  It was a central location for everyone that came, and I'm secretly relieved I didn't have to travel.  I've read on multiples message boards that you should have your shower sooner rather than later because of how exhausting it can be, and I can see why.  33 weeks probably wasn't the ideal time, but the holidays interfered with having it any sooner.  But, I survived, had fun, and received a lot of great stuff for the babes!

(the cupcakes were seriously too cute to eat)

In other baby news, I had an appointment this week and everything went well.  The growth ultrasound has Baby Girl's weight estimated at 4lb, 7oz and Baby Boy's weight at 4lb, 11oz.  I'm always amazed how much they grow from month to month.  It makes me feel relieved at this point that they are at a good weight if something were to happen.  My doctor decided for me to start having weekly NSTs from here on out, and everything checked out well with my first one this week.  I wish I had known that ahead of time and brought a book along with me.  It made for a pretty boring 45 minutes! 
Still no talk of a specific induction date.  He didn't bring it up, and I didn't ask.  I will for sure ask him when I see him again - I'm getting anxious to meet these little ones!
I'll leave you with my 32 week bump pic.  I have to say I'm starting to feel like a huge beached whale.  I don't think I look that bad until I see a picture of myself and then I cringe a little.  I'm starting to think everyone is lying to me and just trying to be nice when they say how great I look :) 

More ramblings to come soon....I promise.
