36 weeks

isn't this the cutest load of laundry you've ever seen?

and here is a picture of the nursery:

we decided to go with just one crib for now, everything we read says they can share a crib for the first little bit and that a lot of times, they will actually sleep better when they do. my mom made these quilts on the wall and i absolutely LOVE them! aren't they beautiful?

now we're just in countdown mode until the girls get here.

on sunday, we were at my parent's house watching conference and i noticed that my contractions seemed to get pretty regular. after counting for 3 hours and having them be between 4-7 minutes apart, my dad and dallin gave me a blessing and we decided to head to the hospital. baby a is sitting VERY low. so low that the doctor and nurse seemed surprised that i wasn't dilated more. but after monitoring my contractions and checking my progress for about 3 hours, they sent us home because i wasn't progressing at all. i've still been having pretty regular contractions, every 3-7 minutes when i take the time to count them, but they haven't been painful, so we're just waiting until something new happens. i have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning, so i'm hoping to show a little more progression then. however, we realize that i may still not be progressing and that there is a possibility we'll have to wait until around 37 or 38 weeks before they will schedule an induction.

at my ultrasound last friday, they estimated baby a to be weighing about 5 lbs. 6 oz. and baby b to be weighing about 5 lbs. 12 oz. obviously this is just an estimate, but it's encouraging to see them at a nice healthy weight! the doctors say that their heart rates are beautiful, that the babies are doing well, and they seem surprised to see me in such good shape still (no swelling, good blood pressure, still walking, etc.), so hopefully this good streak continues!

dallin and i are so anxious for these babies to join us! we love them so much already and we are just dying to meet them! we'll let everyone know as soon as they arrive!
