You know that ‘nesting’ phase that happens when your preggo. Yeah well… I’ve been able to hold it off for weeks and weeks knowing that I couldn’t do anything but we still had time to get things done. Holding off is NOT working anymore so I’m doing my best to nest from the couch and during my 10 minute ‘up’ breaks. We’ve been busy over the last few days… taking huge loads to Goodwill (I wasn’t doing any errrr much lifting), picking up some free twin gear from a friend of our neighbor who had twins, emptying my dresser to give to the babies, sorting through baby clothes, ect. I still feel like we are a far cry from ready. I haven’t even thought about what I need to bring to the hospital. My labors are normally L-O-N-G and I have always gone into labor in the middle of the night, waking up to heavy contractions, taking a shower, packing a bag, calling my mom, waking hubby up and finally heading to the hospital. When we get there I am normally 9 cm and they rush me in and hook me up only to have my labor take 10-15 more hours. So I am not normally worried that I won’t make it. But for some reason I keep thinking this is #5 & #6 and they might come faster. What if my water breaks? It never has before… but with all that extra weight and kicking who knows.
So I need to make a list for the hospital, wash some babies clothes, go get and set up a crib in our room, buy disposable diapers, make plans for the kids, ect…. I know it will get done and it will all work out fine but man do I wish I could be up and going right now. I have my OB appointment on Tuesday and she’ll check my cervix so we’ll see if it’s getting even thinner. I’m guessing so… but with it only being 1cm 2 weeks ago it makes me wonder how thin it can get before labor starts. Hmmmmmmm. I still think these babies will stay put for a few more weeks. I guess we’ll just wait and see!
Off to make that hospital list!
Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
