Waiting & Waiting ...

So we're playing the waiting game now ... my OB hasn't phoned yet so I guess no news means good news! At least that's what I'm going with. Wesley thinks that my OB is going to let me go further. I predict that we'll be delivering our beauties within a week today. Maybe we should start a pool? ;)
Today was a boring day for me. I was in bed for most of the day sleeping and watching tv. I know, the life right? Anyway, I've posted a few more pics from our maternity photo shoot so have a look! I also learned that today is "National Multiple Births Awareness Day" so I'm wishing all my friends with twins and triplets a very happy day!
I just spoke to my OB today and while she is a "little" concerned for their size, they're both extremely healthy, so she doesn't feel that it's best to pull them out just yet. I guess the benefit of keeping them inside of me clearly outweighs the risk of removing them right now, even though I've past some very important milestones having made it past 34 weeks! Anyway, it looks like I'll be preggers for a little longer than I thought (I hate when Wes is right haha)!
I am going to see my OB on Monday June 2nd for a check up visit and will have a follow up ultrasound on Friday June 6th (this time at the hospital, to get a second opinion). My OB will be there so she'll get the results right away so that she can make a decision on how to proceed. Who knows ... June 6th may be the lucky day since I'll already be at the hospital! In the meantime, anything can happen, so please keep thinking good thoughts for our babies! We're praying for a growth spurt. And no, feeding me butter will not help with the cause! :)

Hello. I know this is a completely random comment. My name is also Robyn Russell, and I'm from Louisiana. I put my name into the "Google Alert" system awhile back so that I'm made aware of when my name is published. I'm learning that there are other Robyn Russells out there, one being you! :)

Anyway, I wanted to wish you the best of luck on your upcoming delivery. I'm a Mommy to an 8-month-old, and I can honestly tell you that there's nothing in the world better than being a mother. The neat thing is you get to experience that twice at the same time!

Best of luck!
