I think I haven't posted an update in a while as I have found so many answers to my questions just by searching previous posts. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found MDC!
So, here I am...34 weeks + 4 days and going strong! Okay, I am pretty tired, and spend most of the day on the couch, but otherwise am well. Our di-di baby girls appear to be growing well, but just haven't found their sense of direction. Baby A has been breech for about a month and Baby B was vertex though I have a feeling she is now transverse (for a while they were both transverse). Unfortunately midwives in Ontario (Canada) cannot attend home births (or at least according to their regulatory College), so we did transfer our care to an experienced OB. If Baby A continues to be breech we are bound for the dreaded c-section (breech birth of baby A not even an option here)...here's hoping these girls stop and ask for directions on their way out!
We are also having the "not letting you go past 38 weeks" debate and the "we really want you to have an epidural debate"...sigh...it does take a lot of energy to do things the way you want them. I do actually like this OB, and he has 35+ years of experience, which means he has kind of been-there-done-that. We will wait and see and continue to advocate for as little intervention as possible.
Other than that, it's definitely getting more difficult to eat all that food, though I can't get over how thirsty I am so I do drink an enormous amount of water every day. I still have only gained 30 lbs...I suffer from morning sickness with all of my pregnancies for 9 FULL months, so this is no surprise, but I did expect to gain more this time around. Here is a link to some maternity photos I had done last week... http://simplephoto.typepad.com/a_sim...ernity_photos/

Oh, and I forgot the KILLER heartburn!!! (okay, so maybe I do have a complaint or two
Looking forward to sharing this exciting time with all of you.
