We are 27 weeks now, but the babies are measuring closer to 29/30 weeks. So, that's good news!
The sonographer took a few pictures of the babies that I'll scan and attach later on this evening or tomorrow.
Tomorrow is another big day - we're getting the furniture delivered! The cribs and dresser will be arriving sometime in the afternoon. We need to get moving on cleaning out and painting the nursery (former office)!

This afternoon I signed up for the Austin Mothers of Multiples club (http://www.austinmoms.org/)! They have monthly large group meetings and several other play groups, lunches, happy hours, etc... throughout the month. The next group meeting is August 31st - I've already RSVPed.
They also have a huge resale event/consignment sale twice a year. Members of the "MOMs" group get to go on Friday night for first dibs on all of the items at the sale. It opens to the general public on Saturday. The next sale event is on September 11 - 12th - I'm looking forward to checking it out!
On the baby front - they are now the size of Eggplants! They're moving around a bunch and giving me some pretty good kicks. I can't wait to see them again on an ultrasound in a few weeks!I have a meeting with HR on Tuesday to talk about Maternity Leave and get rolling on the necessary paperwork. Yay!

Hopefully we'll like everything when we receive it in the mail in a few weeks!!
We had a doctors appointment on Tuesday. Everything is looking good! The babies are squirming around a bunch and are in about the 60th percentile for size - so they're bigger than average, but not scarily huge. We have appointments now every 2 weeks and then every week starting at 30 weeks! We're getting close!!!
(This isn't my picture - I stole it off the internet)At my next appointment I have to take a Gestational Diabetes test. I have to drink this orange soda sugar drink an hour before my appointment and then get a blood test to see how my body reacts to the sugar. I've heard that the drink can really mess you up - it's soooo loaded with sugar.
So, no sugar for me for a few days leading up to the test ;) I'm not sure if that will make any difference, but I really don't want to be on a restricted diet or on insulin shots for the next several months!
