I am feeling pretty good. My only issues at present include boredom (seriously, I wake up thinking of a plan for what I am going to do until Andrew gets home... sad but true) and the ever increasing size of my tummy which seems to make everything else feel heavy. Funny enough months ago I read on a blog that the mommy-to-be needed to be physically pulled out of bed at the end of her pregnancy. My thoughts at the time were somewhere along the lines of seriously, what a cow, who is this person who let themselves get soo big and soo weak? I am eating my words. I can still propel myself out of bed and off the couch but it isn't without effort, effort that might actually leave me short of breath. I think I am up more than 45 pounds... yikes!
The nursery is coming together so well. I can't wait to share it with you. The closet organizer went up this weekend and I did a ton of baby laundry. Just a few more things to do and it will be ready.
Last week I broke the doctor's rules and went on a couple of outside of the house adventures. That first forbidden car ride felt amazing. Surely the happiness that I felt in leaving the house couldn't really be bad for me. I needed to get everything for my hospital bag so I could stop obsessing about how I wasn't ready. (My list was nearing 45 items long... overkill? perhaps). Now I have everything except a robe and it just needs to be packed. I kind of feel like if I pack it, I will need it so I am holding out.
Clothes are becoming slightly more challenging in that I am growing out of the few maternity clothes that I have been wearing all the time. I do have moments of panic about how big I've gotten but I am largely repeating to myself that this is temporary, the girls are getting nice and big and soon enough I can initiate the lose the baby weight plan. Luckily I have a few dresses that will fit no matter how big my tummy chooses to get!
And now for the tummy...
|This is the first maternity top that I bought... I'm pretty sure I am pushing its limits.|
|Here is a close up (and not a full side view) so I kind of think it actually makes me look smaller than I am.|
Just in case you missed it... here is the twin bump at 14 weeks, 16 weeks, 18 weeks, 22 weeks, 24 weeks and 28 weeks!
