..shut in..

I would give my life savings at this moment to feel that salt water mist on my face. Heck, I would give my life savings right now to be able to take a nice walk down the block.. that is.. if I had any life savings :) 

I have finished the baby books. Now if I could only remember what I just read. My bag is packed for the hospital. Doctor's appointment tomorrow to check up on everything. Feel like I have an "Indian Sunburn" on my tummy. Every time baby A kicks at it, tears well up in my eyes because of the pain it brings. Yeah... nerves or not I am pretty much done with this whole being pregnant thing. It's been a good ride and now I am glad there is so much light at the end of the tunnel. I should enjoy all the eating I am doing, and I am trying too believe me, but they are so demanding right now!! I eat every 2 hours or so, always something with lots of protein, and like clockwork 2 hours later I am starving and have to find something else to force down. I wake up in the middle of the night in agony because I am so hungry!! This after eating a snack right before bed! I crawl out of bed and hobble on my barely functional hips to the kitchen to drink a glass of milk and try to find something else to eat by the light of the fridge. 

Last week at the doctor's office I was measuring at 45 weeks.. 45 weeks!!! I remember looking at Googled pictures of twin bellies right after I found out about these two and wondering how it would even be possible for me to get that huge.. and yet.. here we are :) Despite my whining, we are in pretty good spirits around here. Everything is ready. We are ready. They are almost ready :) I can say this, I am glad I have been pretty mood swing free up to this point. The emotional weather around here has been a bit unpredictable lately :( Poor Stephen. I am likely to burst into tears over nothing at all. I know it will all be over soon and I will have a whole new set of things to burst into tears over :) Anyway.. that's the news from Lake Wobegon.. where all the men are good looking, the women are in their PJs and all the children.. are above average.
