it's getting close....

My boy has definitely dropped in the last couple of days. Even Josh noticed that my pert and perky belly looks lower than normal. And I can feel my son pressing down more and more.

Still no real contractions, only BH here and there. No mucous changes (TMI), no other labor signs. I just feel... heavy... like both babies are pushing their weight down.... and my stomach is really tight... And my appetite is non-existent. I feel like I need to force myself to eat.

I am at the point where I just want them out now. But them again I don't. I'm not ready!!!

I decided that instead of buying a new bureau right away I am going to have Josh bring the one we already have downstairs and my bookshelves upstairs. Just a little switcheroo. I've read everything on those bookshelves anyway and I don't care to look at them anymore. So this afternoon/evening I will be packing up most of the bookshelf stuff into my currently empty trunk/coffee table. I also have some craft things all organized in bins on one of the shelves that I think I may put on my hall closet shelves. a couple of months ago I got all "Clean House" and binned and labeled everything I own. My pantry has never looked better ;)

so exciting...:) tell those babies to stay put though, just another couple weeks so they can be fully ready and you don't have to deal with nicu and all that...;)

I totally get the "just want them out now but I'm not ready!" The interesting thing is that it gradually tips more and more towards the "just want them out now" side. There are times I still don't feel ready (but I don't think I'll every 100% be ready). I am really starting to wonder if your boy and girl will be here before my boy and girl...
