Like I said in my last post, I feel like I can finally relax :) I even got better sleep! I didn't think I would because it was around 1:30 before I high-tailed it into bed, but I only woke up ONCE during the night and slept until 6:30 :) I never knew I would be so happy to get 5 hours at once (sort of!) Then I was up for around 1/2 hour and went back to sleep until my phone rang at 9 or so... And I woke up in a "doggie sandwich" lol - Molly was as cuddled up as she could be against my large belly and Lucy was back to back with me, which felt nice because she was warm and kept my back nice and stable, better than any pillow ;)
I'm so happy and anxious and scared and relieved that my IF journey is almost over. I mean, I still believe I will always be an infertile, I wouldn't have gotten pregnant the "normal way", and especially not with my precious twins. It's all so surreal.
I'm going to be a mom. Josh is going to be a dad. Really?!
I have been bedrest-nesting a lot (i.e. ordering stuff on the 'net). My daily excitement is going to to mailbox to see what goodies I got. Yesterday I received some clothes for my little boy. Josh has a thing for "shirts with snaps". He recently bought 2 Lucky Brand shirts (don't get me started - he is still feeling bad about spending the money), so I bought a little 3 month plaid shirt (with snaps, of course) for our little guy, plus a couple of other plaid shirts and some really adorable little camo-cargo shorts. Josh was thrilled :) He is all excited that he and his boy will match with their shirts with snaps lol! I also got a couple of nursing bras. One is leopard print of course. And I got another sleep bra. The leopard is from La Leche League Collection. And umm, do the band sizes fit smaller or am I just in denial?? Thankfully I had some extenders, but all of my other bras of the same size fit me... peculiar...
I also got some yummy samples from Canus (http://www.canusgoatsmilk.com/eng/) that I emailed to request. They sent me baby shampoo, baby lotion, and another vegetaable oil baby bar soap. They smell soooooo good.... I may buy some for myself! I got a bunch of cloth diapering items too. With twins I want to save money, so I figured I would try cloth diapers, at least during the day. Most likely I will go with disposables at night and for outings. If I like cloth diapering I will join a diaper service here so I won't have to launder it all...
Geez I sound like a granola girl, huh? Well, I am so not ;) I don't wear hemp, I love designer clothes and such, and I do eat food with a face. Well, not with the face currently attached. BUT I do prefer organic food because it just makes me feel better, and I love the way organic stuff smells and feels. I think it started with my obsession with Burt's Bees a few years ago.
Anyway, being 34 weeks is so nice. And bittersweet. My years of struggling will be a distant memory when I look into the eyes of my babies.
My birthday is coming up on the 22nd. Wouldn't that be the best birthday gift ever??
