34 weeks and counting. . . .

Well, another of my friends had her babies, she had twins on Saturday, I'm not sure if pictures are posted on her blog but her blog is howeslifewith5.blogspot.com. I have a link over on my sidebar if you want to know more. We only saw the girl twin, the boy twin took a huge breath of amniotic fluid during delivery and so he is in the NICU but the doctors have him there mostly as a precaution and aren't terribly concerned. But the girl twin is adorable. It made me want to be done even more. But, only more 5 weeks left since the c-section is scheduled for 39 weeks. I seem to be alright about the contractions if I don't do too much. However, that is incredibly frustrating for me. I'm starting to feel like we might be ready if this baby comes early, I was able to fish out the baby stuff from the basement storage room today and I just need to wash all of it and figure out where we're going to put a changing table in our house. Someone (either cookie or cakes) will have to give up something in their room to make room for another dresser and a changing table. We'll see how that goes. I need to keep an eye out for another dresser at our local thrift store since there just isn't money in our account to buy one new. We'll see what we can find. Well, that's about it. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I last another five weeks. It really would be best if I made it to 39 weeks, even though I want to be done already.

MUCH LUCK to you...take it easy. Check out freecycle.org - they should have a town/city near you to become a part of, and you can ask for whatever you may need - for free. E-mail me if you have any questions about it at beachykeen_00 AT msn DOT com.

bon- no kidding, I'm not having nearly the difficult time you're having, it's almost over though, lets keep each other updated.

tug- thanks, I think I'll try it out, I tried it once but it wasn't so great yet here. But that was a few years ago.

leslie- I'm glad you think so! I just keep trying to keep my chin up and remember it's almost over, I usually don't feel so amazing just exhausted!

hoosiergirl- lol, it would be alright if it came now most likely but it still is better to wait until it's ready but I agree, I'm ready to be able to hold this kid and get some sleep of my own. You can come if you would like! We would love to see you!

Hang in there - you can make it 5 weeks - you've gone 34 - what's 5 more? Besides, you really want a planned c-section, not a rushed one - trust me on this.

The first one was somewhat rushed. It was no fun. Recovery is much nicer after a scheduled one.
