Almost 37 weeks

So Im still here. And no I have not had the babies yet! The list of people that I have to update daily is getting longer, everyone seems to think the babies are coming any day now. My sister is so sweet- she emails me every day just to check in. But they aren't here yet. If I had to guess, I think Im close and that they will be here by the weekend but what do I know?!



I did have an appointment and made further progress- I am between 3.5 and 4 cm dilated and 90% effaced. So really, these babies could come any day.



As I get closer to welcoming Emma and Joshua into this world, I hope I always remember the way I feel right now. I feel this amazing combination of excitement, greatfulness, fear, love, happiness- all rolled into one. I don't think I will ever feel the way I feel right now ever again. I know my life is about to change but I also fully comprehend that I have no idea how much its going to change. And I cant wait! I know things wont be easy but honestly, when are they? I hope I can remember to enjoy as many moments with my babies as I can and appreciate every chance I get to experience something new with them. And I wont ever, ever forget what it took to get here.

I have an ultrasound on Thursday and an appointment on Friday. I will update when I have new info.

Have a good week, my friends!

Good luck! Treasure these final moments of pregnancy - I missed it almost immediately, even though I was beyond thrilled they were here and healthy.

Hun, I am so freakin' excited for you and Dan. This will be such a life changing experience, but I know you will face it head on with the grace, compassion and love with which you handle every situation. I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again. Joshua and Emma are two very lucky little folks.

Aw, you're getting so close!! Very exciting!!

Kelly and Natalie said...

I can't tell you how excited I am that you have made it so far! Sounds like it's getting very close! You will most definitely find time to enjoy those babies and capture all the new moments. I only have one, but I make a point every day just to look at her, reflect, and soak it all in! <3

So exciting. And it's wonderful that you're making a point to enjoy the last days. I so miss that feeling of having my little girl inside of me, even though I love having her here and watching her grow and learn.

Jess said...

Shannon, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. What an exciting time in your life! I remember feeling the same way...never wanting to forget exactly how I felt as my due date(s) approached. With Colin, Nathan, Joe and I would still sit really quietly and feel him kick for a bit. Very happy for you and I am amazed you have done so well! GREAT JOB! :) Jess

Jessica said...

I am just so incredibly excited and happy for you. I will keep you four in my prayers!

Sarah said...

Oh hon, I'm so excited for you that I could just pee!

Mrs.F said...

Yay I'm so excited to see your precious babes!!! I will be religiously stalking your blog/FB for the next few days/weeks :) Good luck at your appointment!!

Eris1995 said...

I'm so excited for you! Any day now you'll get to meet those precious little babies!

Stephanie said...

How exciting! You are so right, you don't know just how life is going to change! In so many amazing ways! It is just unthinkable how your heart grows when those babies arrive. It is also pretty insane how sleep deprived you will be. I was just thinking yesterday how I don't know quite how I made it through those crazy days, but we did. Looking back at their teeny tiny baby pictures I can't even believe how they have grown in 7 short months. Time flies, so yes, do enjoy every second. You are going to be an amazing mom! :) Can't wait to hear all about it when they get here!

Carly said...

I am so excited you are so close. You write so beautifully and are feeling so much- maybe you should write a letter to E & J right now :)

I say any day too! Good luck and you will do GREAT! Enjoy the last moments because while its awesome to have baby out in the real world, its sad that you don't have them kicking in your belly.
I'm so excited for you and can't wait to hear that they arrived. Good luck at the appointment! **HUGS**

Just spend your last few days relaxing. It's such an exciting time though that it's hard to relax. I can imagine you are about to burst with excitement and ready to meet these two little gifts. I can't wait to visit your family. I'll be thinking about you and praying for a safe and easy delivery. (if there is such a thing?) Love you
