In the home stretch….

Today marks 34 weeks.  The end  is in sight!!! We are all excited for these last few weeks, me to finally be able to bend over again and Scott, Jess, and Cassidy to meet their baby girls.  I am so happy/relieved so far that this pregnancy has been so easy and drama free.  If the babies can stay put for 2 more weeks it will be smooth sailing (hopefully!!). 🙂 We have an Ultrasound on Friday to check babies weights and my cervix and then an OB appointment that afternoon.

Belly pics below, at exactly 34 weeks. Excuse the blue pants, they are bright but COMFY. 🙂 🙂

We are so close

Deanna and I spent a good part of last week shopping for baby clothes and stuff. I feel confident the babies won’t be naked on the way home now. We bought the paint and I’m just waiting for Scott to be ready to use it. Scott and I ordered the dresser this weekend and our source for the cribs says they can be picked up any time. Things are really coming together. I’m going to pack the babies’ bag and take it to leave at K’s this week when I go for the OB appt.

Yesterday Cass and I visited with a friend who had her baby last month. As she was telling me about going into labor I realized that’s going to happen to us (well to K really!). As many birth stories as I’ve heard/read I have never been a part of “OMG. I think this is IT!” I can’t even imagine how exciting it is to realize that you are going to meet your babies NOW. I just hope and pray that everything goes well and I am there and K has an easy delivery (two deliveries?).

Tomorrow we’ll find out the new measurements (babies and cervix) and then Friday is the OB appt so she can tell us what it all means. It’s weird to make appointments (doctor, hair, etc) and know that the babies will be here by then…

Not much longer…

30 weeks….only 10 more weeks at the most and the little girls will be here!! A few pics below, my son took them. 🙂 the one is red shirt is around 28 weeks, the purple shirt is today at 30 weeks.

30 WEEKS

I think I’m in shock that we are 30 weeks pregnant. This is it. This is the last 10 (likely less) weeks. At this point in Cassidy’s gestation, we didn’t even know she was coming home with us and yet I feel like we don’t have enough time to get everything done! 🙂

I have the bedding here at the house and the new diaper bag (my treat to me). We have ordered the furniture. New carpet is coming Tuesday. I need to choose a paint color for the room and start painting. Of course none of that really matters. We need to get 1 more car seat and pull out the newborn clothes and then we’re ready to go. I suppose we should get some bottles too… I picked out birth announcements (well, actually, I couldn’t find any I like so I found someone to design them). I’ll print the labels and have the envelopes ready in the next couple weeks. I do want to find something nice and sort of matchy to bring them home from the hospital in, but I’ll have time to shop in the next few weeks…

I think I’m in that nesting mode that I’ve never really known before. Sadly for Scott it’s not leading to cleaning, just buying 🙂
