Just wanted to share...

Lately, I've been having dreams that I'm pregnant again. Now I know that I am not, but it really has me thinking. When we got married, I always thought Dan and I would have 3-4 kids. After the twins were born, I felt that our family was complete and still do. Whenever I start thinking about the possibility of the "4th child" I look at the pictures of myself when I was pregnant with the twins and quickly change my mind. Don't get me wrong I LOVED being pregnant both times. It's just that pregnancy took a toll on me, physically and emotionally because of the miscarriages, swelling, blood clotting and who can forget getting a shot everyday for 8 months.
I also wanted to share with my friends in NOVA who didn't get to see me at the end of my pregnancy with the twins since we moved in the middle of the pregnancy. The human body is an amazing thing and carrying 2 babies at the same time is something I will always treasure. So here goes...the first picture is right after Christmas-around 29 weeks and the next one was taken the night before Brady and Jack were born.

Uh, Lee...I think I was the same size as you and I only had one baby in my belly. Granted, A was as big as some twins (9 lb 6 oz)...

K-A was a big baby, the twins combined weight was 10 lb 11oz. I remember at Harrison's party last year that you were ready and ended up going 2 weeks after that. Loved the picture, you looked great though!

J-unfortunately I have many, many stretch marks from the twins :( I'd love to see a pic of you with Graham!

Isn't it amazing. I remember seeing my friends Suzette and Jenn who had twins and thinking the same thing. I can't imagine how moms of multiples (>2) do it.

I know what you mean about thinking about being pregnant again. With Jake turning 2 I feel like it's time to start thinking about it again. Of course when Rachel turned 2 I was 7 months pregnant with Jake. Can't imagin doing that again.
