Certainly sounds like your body is gearing up to birth some babies!
I love the different EDDs.

The different EDD's are so weird. LOL It sounds like you are doing fabulous though.
Feeling very sorry for myself today....I'm generally a "glass half full" kinda girl, but today....I'm not!
I am feeling so uncomfortable, had dull back pain for the last 48 hours, (TMI alert) diarrhoea, contractions triggered by anything and last night I think I slept precisely one hour of pointless, disturbed sleep. Full bladder (well, as full as my bladder goes at the moment) = contractions, emptying bowels = contractions, changing position = contractions. None of which actually go anywhere....
I know it won't be long, I know that I won't be pregnant forever, I know I should be enjoying the last few days of only having two children, I know I am incredibly lucky to have two beautiful, healthy girls and a relatively good, uneventful twin pregnancy. But I am not a happy person today - I am too tired! I honestly don't know how I am going to get through the day....my girls know that I am struggling and are playing up to it. I don't blame them. But then I get the "and how am I going to manage FOUR children" thoughts when I am barely managing two today. And then I feel guilty.
If I actually do see anyone today and they say "how are you feeling?" (that special phrase for pregnant women) I think I will cry. Same goes for "Oh, you're still here?", "haven't you had those babies yet?", "It won't be long now", "so when are you actually due?", "ooh I always wanted twins...". So it's probably safer not to go out today otherwise I will be the blubbering fool in the aisle of the supermarket....we're completely out of milk so will have to wait until this evening when DH can pick some up on his way home from work. Which means that he will get back even later, tough when I am counting the minutes until he is back. Sad eh?
Sorry for my pity party, it's just a rough day, but I feel better for letting that all out! And tomorrow is another day so I am into survival mode only for the next few hours. I think I will just be the best parent I can be today, which unfortunately means that the emergency DVDs are coming out! I think Finding Nemo will be first....
Just keep swimming....

I would love to get my hands on my Grandma's old medical charts. She says she was contracting the whole time? But I can't fathom why they wouldn't have just reached in a pulled my dad out. They knew she was having twins (good ole xrays ). And, get this, neither placenta came out and she needed a d&c afterwards.
There is your crazy story of the day! And something that would totally never happen now!
Sorry you are so miserable!!! I think the DVD's sound like a fabulous idea. No kid has ever thought it was a bad day when they were allowed to watch extra tv/movies Do you have a friend that could run some errands for you and would understand if you told her not to ask you about the babies? Then you could have your hubby home on time.
You are TOTALLY entitled to throw yourself a pity party!!! You're carrying twice as much baby (and placenta!) as the vast majority of pregnant women, most of whom have been *****ing and moaning for a couple weeks by this point. I think though that you won't be waiting much longer for those babies to come. Sounds like everything is gearing up nicely! (or not so nicely...).
Awww hugs Vent as much as you want. That is why we are here.
Sorry you're having such a rough day.

((HUGS)) friend. I wish I could come scoop up those girlies for you and not return them until tomorrow. A housefull of 5 girls sounds manageable to me today.
I'll be thinking of you!
