We’ve come a long way….

I cannot believe we have made it to 37 weeks!! When we first found out it was twins, I must admit I was a little concerned about how the “end” of the pregnancy would be. I had read/heard lots of “horror” stories about twin pregnancies and all the added complications that come with it. But I have to say, this pregnancy really hasn’t been any  different than my singleton ones, with just a few minor differences. For instance, my belly is MUCH bigger this time around. The only other trouble I have had, and this just started a week or so ago, is sleeping.  I usually sleep no longer than 2 hours at a time before I have to do a bathroom run or turn to the other side due to muscle aches. And Tums have been part of my nights as well. 🙂

Below are pics of my very LOW and very ROUND belly.


Still here

It’s been an uneventful week. After the u/s this afternoon I expect nothing will happen for a little while. K has been doing all her normal stuff (AND scrubbed the floor yesterday) and nothing… The girls are just happily baking…

I’ll be meeting Scott in Baltimore this weekend to get Cass. He’s not doing well with the single parent thing so she will come down here and stay with me. I was hoping to keep her home and in school until the babies are born, but this way she and I will have “quality time” until her sisters arrive and take over 🙂

So here I am…

…in Virginia, waiting for the girls to make their appearance(s). I can’t even believe K is 36 weeks pregnant today. It’s been the longest and shortest 36 weeks EVER! We have an OB appt tomorrow and hopefully will get a better idea of how much longer it will be. No worries, I won’t be pushing for scheduling anything. Just curious what the doctor’s gut feeling is. I am staying with K’s in-laws (who are Scott’s aunt and uncle) and we are all relieved that I am close enough to make even the quickest labor and delivery now.

The nursery is ready except for cribs which should be coming home any day. But the bassinet is ready and the dresser and all the laundry is done…Car seats are in the van; babies bag is here. I think we are as ready as we can be. Can you really be ready for 2 newborns?

Trying to remain calm

I feel like I have a lot to say, but it’s all jumbled in my head.

Last Friday we had an u/s and OB appt. Everything is still right on track. Babies are measuring 4lbs and 5lbs, A still head down (and so low it’s almost impossible for her to flip now) B is still breech (and practically sitting on her sister’s head!). The u/s dr mentioned 37 weeks, but Dr B dismissed that as “they don’t know” and I’m sure they don’t. It would just be so nice to have an idea…

K goes back to Dr B on Tuesday and then I’ll be in town from 2/14 on. I’ll be staying at Scott’s Aunt’s house (K’s MIL) so that I don’t hover (Deanna made me promise :)) I really don’t want to hover and I swear I’ll never say “do you feel anything?” because I know Kylene  will tell me if she feels anything! It’s just a dumb question! Cass will stay home with Scott and we’ll meet up halfway on the weekend(s). It’s a plan for now but I know I’ll have to be flexible (my downfall!)

The babies’ room is painted but we are waiting on the cribs to do anything else because we are just not sure where/how they are going to fit. Once again I ordered too much furniture!

I am going to spend this week packing and getting ready for the gala this weekend. The timing of everything is just crazy!

As I drove home from VA last night I thought that this could be the last time I drive north without the babies. CRAZY!!
