Baby is the size of a: Papaya! Each baby should be measuring about 18.7 inches from crown to heel and weighing in around 5.8 pounds.

Due Date: 4/2/2017

Symptoms: I had two appointments this week - one at PHX Perinatal on 3/28 where the boys were measuring well and the umbilical cord had good flow and good amniotic fluid level. They were doing practice breathing and were moving -- both got an 8/8 on the BPP scale. On Friday, 3/31, I had my last appt at the OBs office before INDUCTION Day! At this point, I had gained 49 lbs - WHEW! and my stomach was measuring 38 weeks. I was 2cm dialated and 75% effaced so the Dr. thought I'd respond well to pitocin. It's crazy to think that a few hours after this news I'd be checking into the hospital. Russ and I grabbed our last supper and headed to the hospital right before midnight with all of our stuff.

Best moment this week: I had the twins!!!!! Before that though,  I had two appointments this week. I also got a final mani/pedi, facial, eyebrow wax, massage and grabbed lunch at Arcadia Farms with Michelley. I'd say I treated myself pretty well :)

Sleep: definitely not sleeping at this point -- too excited/ nervous/ anxious etc.
