30 Weeks

I'm 30 weeks pregnant today. That seems REALLY pregnant to me. I feel that way too. Sleep is more like a string of 1 -2 hour naps. It's really hard to bend over. I'm starting to get really teary over stuff. And - this is the LAST week of no doctor's appointments for me. I have an a ob appointment next week, and then begins the twice weekly non-stress tests to check on the girls. So, I'd better enjoy it while I can, huh?

This weekend was fun and stressful at the same time. Saturday, Aaron and I made an unexpected trip to our old favorite breakfast place in the town we used to live in. We hadn't been there in so long that the last time they had seen us was BEFORE Hulk was born. They were shocked to see me pregnant again (hahahaha) - and of course, Hulk charmed them all. We stopped on the way home and picked up some blackout curtains for the nursery (so I just need to get the valances made in the next 2 weeks) and then I spent the afternoon up at Nini Bambini's playing with Hulk. I even finished up a cute sweater/hat combo for Hulk AND went to the yarn store and got more yarn for the next sweater for him (and yes, I haven't really knit much for the girls. I'm waiting until after the shower - I have a feeling baby girl knits are going to be too hard for my friends to resist).

But Sunday, Hulk woke up and just would NOT settle down. He wasn't sad or fussy - just all over the place! And all he wanted was his father. Which I made even better by waking up with an awful headache. So, Aaron spent the early afternoon playing with Hulk while I tried to recover from my headache. He of course had a blast playing with him, but he had higher hopes of more progress on the nursery. The good news is that it's sanded. So this week he is going to clean up the dust, and then put a coat of primer down, and pray that the walls don't need anymore work. If that is the case, we get the flooring this weekend!

OK - better start my Monday.

I used to look forward to appointments, mostly because I got to get out of the house;)

I got so tired of going to the doctor every ten minutes at the end.

Hey CeCe,

Don't know if you remember me but we met at spinning, I am a friend of Julie's. Congrats on the twins. Shoot me an email, I might be able to help with the night time nanny thing. (PS I am the mom of twins - 17 now, I understand what you are going through)

YAY for 30 weeks! Glad that Hulk is doing well. Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Sorry about the headache, though.
