Yesterday was a big day...first of all I've hit 35 weeks! Woohoo! And, of course, it was our 7 year wedding anniversary. Never in a million years did I imagine that we would be married 7 years and not have a couple of kids running around but hey, I am just so thankful to be where we are today. Including the time before infertility where we tried to adopt a baby internationally, we have been trying to become parents for nearly 5 years. Crazy! But now, we are merely weeks (or less) away from meeting our babies. The thought of that overwhelms me. I am just so thankful! Obviously the timing wasn't what I would have chosen if given the option 7 years ago but now that we're here, I can't imagine it any other way.
Last week two of my closest friends each had their 3rd little boys. For once I could snuggle those little babies and not grieve the fact that I may never get the chance to hold one of my own. I am so excited that our kids are going to be so close in age! By the end of 2013, SIX of my closest friends will have had babies this year! Imagine how much fun we are all going to have with our kids! Amazing timing.
In the "twin pregnancy is tough" category (stop reading now if you want!) I've really really been struggling with sleep. I don't think I've slept longer than a 2.5 hour stretch in almost 2 months. Most nights I'm up every 1-2 hours. Either I have to pee, I get a contraction (which are getting more painful!) or my leg/hip falls asleep and I have to walk around to get feeling back. Ugh! It definitely takes it's toll on your body! Yesterday I was feeling almost delirious from lack of sleep. At least I will be well-prepared for the crazy nights up feeding the twins. Poor T, he claims me grunting and groaning as I haul myself out of bed doesn't bother him but I don't see how it can't!
I leave you with the gorgeous crib that T made (the second one will be done closer to when they need their own). He also made the mobile! I have such a multi-talented husband! He is currently working on the dresser/changing table. I am so lucky!
