Random Thoughts...

I'm becoming more and more excited (which at this point doesn't even seem possible!) about the arrival of these boys with each day that passes. Over the weekend Hubs managed to get a TON done for the boys' room. We're making a great big abacus for the wall over their changing table, so he painted all of the wood beads for that, painted the metal garbage we're using for the diaper pail and also painted a piece of furniture for another room in the house. Meanwhile, I was able to get hostess gifts for the three women who are throwing my baby shower in a few weeks, hit up a tiny consignment sale and visit with a few friends.

The curtain fabric arrived on Monday and I love it (orange and white chevron). Now, I just need to find the proper hardware for the curtains so I know exactly how long to make them.... I can't wait for another piece to be DONE in their room. I start freaking out when I read about women who deliver their twins at 32-34 weeks or end up on strict bed rest around 28-30 weeks. For the record, I am doing EVERYTHING in my power to both avoid bed rest and get the big things done by 28 weeks.

This weekend we are taking a newborn care and breastfeeding class. I know its a little early, but it is a class specifically centered around multiple pregnancies and this is the last time it is offered until next fall- which seems a little late :) I read that it provides a bunch of good information on sleep with multiples and I think it will be interesting to meet other couples who are expecting multiples.

Our shower is 4 weeks from this Saturday. I know it is early (I'll be 26 weeks), but since it is out of town we decided that it was best to get it in before any possibility of partial/full bed rest. There are so many benefits for me when it comes to the timing of this shower. Not only will I likely be fine when it comes to traveling for the shower, but it also gives us plenty of time to make any returns or fill in the gaps on what we are missing over the next couple of months.

I cannot get enough to eat these days. I am so stinking hungry it is absurd. It is hard to get much food in me at one time, so it feels like I am constantly eating. Seriously. I ate breakfast twice yesterday. Followed by a lunch and about 4 afternoon snacks. SO HUNGRY! Perhaps this is why things are starting to pick up all of a sudden in the weight department.

Also, did you see this week's episode of Private Practice? Be warned. Holy cow.

Oh my gosh, I am still so excited for you! Hopefully you will post pictures of their room once you are done.
Haven't watched Private Practice yet...but will be soon!
I'll call you sometime later this week or early next so we can catch up!

So exciting! You will have to post pictures of the room as it progresses. And the class/shower will both be so great.
Watched Private Practice last night, bawled throughout pretty much the whole show.

I hope you find the breastfeeding class beneficial. I took one towards the end of my pregnancy and really think it's helped me to have a successful breastfeeding experience so far.

I just gave up watching Private Practice last week....now I'm dying to know what happened....

The nursery sounds like it will be awesome! Can't wait to see pictures. Hopefully with all the excitement you have coming up with your classes and showers, time will fly and those babies will be in your arms before you know it! I haven't seen Private Practice (they moved nights, didn't then?) but now I'm not so sure I want to watch...
