Almost There.....

I'm now over 35 weeks pregnant with twins and less than two weeks away from being full term for twins (about 37 weeks)!!! I'm so happy to be so close. I cannot express how incredibly grateful I am to have made it this far with our preterm labor scare at 29 weeks. Thank you all for your sweet comments, thoughts and prayers.

Before the babies come, I thought I'd share with you some of our maternity photos, taken by the lovely April with April Cole Photography. These were taken when I was 30 weeks and I (as have the babies) have since grown quite a bit bigger- hard to believe I know! Since we were rather limited with my mobility, April was nice enough to come out to our house and shoot the photos right there on our property!

Here are some of my favorites:

And don't you know that the turkeys had to stick themselves into the photos?! They seriously won't leave us alone when they are loose (it's quite annoying) and flew up onto the porch to check out what everyone was doing! Haha!

We are thrilled with the photos and so glad to have them to remember this pregnancy and special time in our lives. If you live in the Triangle area in North Carolina or anywhere within the vicinity of Saxapahaw, please consider April for your future photo shoots. We had such a great time!

It won't be long now until the babies are here, so if you don't see a post from me for a bit, you'll know why :)  We are excited to find out their genders and see their little faces for the first time- it's been a long wait for these precious little ones!


  1. You look wonderful! And I love the photo with the turkeys. :)

  2. These photos are so wonderful! You look amazing and so happy! I completely adore the photo with the turkeys - too funny! I'm so excited for you two and can't wait to hear more about the babies when they arrive. Best of luck with the last few weeks of pregnancy!

  3. Fantastic photo shoot! How wonderful to have those moments captured :-) You look gorgeous, healthy and happy! Praying for an easy delivery and two perfect bundles of joy for you!!!

  4. beautiful, beautiful, beautiful......blessings to both of you.........

  5. So happy for you! You look beautiful! You both radiate with happiness. :)
