Let the Countdown begin....

On Tuesday, we had our 36 week appointment. Everyone continues to do well and our GS is now 90% effaced and 1 cm dilated. The doctor thinks that we will be meeting our babies by the end of next week. Our GS had a non-stress test today which also looked good. Heartrates in the 140s, good blood pressure and contractions ever 20 minutes. Babies are very active. Here's to 4th of July babies!! I can't wait to meet these miracles.

Nursery

The nursery is ready for babies thanks to the help of my mom and Greg. Here are some pictures and video. It is hard to believe that we will have two babies in it so soon.

Stokes/McKeown Family Baby Shower

Yesterday was the last of my six baby showers. This one was hosted by three of my aunts at a restaurant on the south side of Chicago. Attendees were members of my family from the Stokes and McKeown sides. Also in attendance were my amazing doctor and nurse who have become wonderful friends through the course of this journey. I can't wait for the twins to meet these fabulous people. Below are some pictures from the day.

O'Brien Baby Shower

Today was my baby shower with the O'Brien family. Meghan, Kellie and my mother-in-law, Janet, hosted a beautiful shower. Since the weather was nice, a tent was set up in the backyard. The shower was a Dr. Seuss theme(Thing 1 and Thing 2). These babies are lucky to be joining such a great family. Here is a link to a facebook album of pictures. Thanks for a wonderful day!
