Last Month Pregnancy Photo Shoot

With each of my pregnancies I have made sure to have a nine month photo shoot with the family. This time around, I'm not quite nine months yet, but thought it wise to go forward with the pictures a little early. For sure, this will be my last month of this pregnancy though. My doctor said he would take the twins 2 1/2 weeks from now, if I make it that long. These pictures were taken yesterday.  At today's OB appointment, I measured 44 centimeters (I am 34 1/2 weeks, and both babies  measured large -  baby girl about 5 3/4 lbs. and baby boy about 5 1/2 lbs. at today's ultrasound). Can you say hello belly!?
Thanks going out to Sariah for taking the pictures and putting up with a couple ornery boys who did not want to look at the camera.  The family picture of the four of us holding hands where Palmer and Brody are being especially not-so-photogenic is actually my favorite, just because it is so them.  Here's to doubling that kid craziness in the Hess family, very, very soon!

Super cute pics, but oh my! You look so incredibly uncomfortable! You're almost there! Good luck! :)

You look so beautiful. This was a really good idea for a place for your photo op. I'll need to learn some funnier noises to make so the boys pay more attention. :) I'm excited to meet the twins!! I just love the Hess clan.

Oh, Lera, I love the pictures. Especially the one with your hands making the hearts. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
