Latest Baby News

Ok, so I went to the specialist yesterday morning and he said it will probably be my last appt because he doesn't think I'll make it another 2 weeks! Caleb is 5 lbs 9 oz now, and Jacob is 5 lbs. So I already have over 10 lbs of baby in me! No wonder I can't walk so gracefully...

Oh, and I'll be 33 weeks on Thursday

Nakia came over this afternoon to help me start organizing the babies' room. (I say 'help', actually, I just sat and watched her organize) So much to do and so little time! I had a series of contractions this morning that made me panicky that if they came I wouldn't be ready... Praise God they stopped, but I'm glad she came over anyway, because now I feel a little better :) We still need to add the shelves in the closet and organize the bins on them, set up the crib, and of course, put away the things from tomorrow's shower and this coming saturday's... I'm so excited! It's fun seeing all these cute matching things.

Oh, and I'm sooo tired of itching... at least it's gotten better since I tried Dustan's miracle remedy of apple cider vinegar. Nasty stuff, but it actually seems to be working.

Friday I'm looking forward to going to the grocery store. Who knows, could be my last trip before the babies! I'm planning on making it a good one, just in case... I must go finish organizing my coupons now in preparation...

2. Diamonds or pearls? Well, I mean, diamonds are my birthstones, but Isaac got some new pearls in at work that are gorgeous...

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? The cinema? I'm gonna assume this means the movies. And...I can't remember.

Heartburn, general discomfort at my awkward weight imbalance, tired because I can't sleep...oh, and this new PUPPP rash thing that apparently happens to some women in their last trimester that there's no real cure for. Nothing like hearing the dr say, "Sorry, you're pretty much just going to be uncomfortable until they're born" Oh good. Something else to keep me from sleeping...a full body itchy rash.

60. What is something you've learned from your current job? Wow...let's see. I've learned that if I had to deal with those things for too long I would become very racist and cynical. Why does it always have to come down to race because we don't give you money? Maybe we really don't have the funds, or maybe it's because you're drunk or high and we're not going to enable you. Just a thought... On a positive note though, I learned a lot about graphic design, which is soooo fun. Nice to have another creative forum...
