Your story is amazing!! The girls are so beautiful, you truly are blessed
Hiya Kelly!! Your intro was beautiful.. I miss you girly!! I have no voice right now or I would give you a call and tell you what an inspiration you are to me!! Not just all the baby miracles, but the running!! Wow - how grea of you to speed walk at 36 weeks, while contracting!! I ran a mile in 12min 42 a few weeks ago - lol, you did better than that walking!!! Oh well, its a start, inspired by you!! Give E&H hugs from J&O!!! Good luck in your labor - I am looking forward to reading all about it! You get to have that natural birth many of us on the MOMs board dreamt of!!!
Woohoo Kelly!!! I'm so proud of you for making it this far and I'll be praying that you get an intervention free birth with Matthew! Go out there and do it for all of us who didn't have a choice. We'll be with you in spirit!!!

That's awesome that you got to go race walking!! It really does feel good to still be active even in late pregnancy, doesn't it? 5.5 miles-you're doing great!!
Whoo hoo Kelly! I'm so glad you've made it to 36 weeks! Matthew truly is meant to be
You know, until I read your intro here, I never realized how similar our twin birth stories are! I'm going live vicariously through you and I hope you get the natural birth you want!
All I can say is, WOW! Great story, you are an inspiration. I can't wait to follow the rest of your lodge!!
After my oh-so-suddle sex thread, I did as Emily suggested last night and used EPO as an "aid" in the bedroom last night. Man is that stuff slippery. But I have to be honest, I am starting to feel bad for Kevin. He said to me last night that I've managed to take all the fun out of it for him. That makes me sad. I know what me means and all, but at the same time don't men WANT women to want them??? Even if it's for different reasons then they'd like.
I'm geting ready to go to my appointment here in 2 hours. I'm a bit concerned that they will get on me about my weight again. I have really upped my caloric intake the last 2 days, but I've also really upped my exercising too. Between doing the lawn last week, taking up race walking again and then my 3x weekly trips to the pool all in 98+ degree weather is not helping me to maintain the weight gain. Oh well, we'll see. Kevin is planning on going with me today so he can tell her that I've been caught with my hand in the cookie...I mean donut jar...many a time the last few weeks.
Gwen...I'll be thinking of you when I go today. "Stay strong! Stay strong" I just know that there has been no change in my cervix and I don't want to get disapointed. So I'm going to tell her no when she asks to do a cervical check. Or atleast I don't want to know the answer. She can wright it down in my file or whatever.
Anyways, I hope everyone has a wonderful day. I'll be back in to check on everyone this afternoon. I haven't made up my mind or not if I want to go to the zoo afterwards.
What time is your appt? mine is at 10 (EDT). I'm pretty sure I won't get the internal check, unless my midwife thinks I need it. She's pretty much a non-intervention type so she probably won't see a reason to have it. And you posted about your walk when I was doing my reply to you - that's amazingly fast! I walked last night with the kids (at a snails pace ) and have had horrific leg cramps since. I'm about to start a thread about it on our BB. But I guess you don't get anything like that since you've been active from the getgo. I've been a slacker for a couple of months now ....
