    I am sitting in my recliner right now typing on a laptop. I really wanted a recliner with my last pregnancy, a singleton, but we lacked the room and the money for one. I will definitely check out that Bed Lounger. I at least bought a size up at Destination Maternity and I am so glad I did. Maybe the stuff will last a month instead of a week that way. We will see.

    I got the greenlight to keep working. I get contractions whenever I walk. I am only 21 weeks. WTF. But my cervix didn't shorten this last month. I just make sure and stop and rest a lot, and try putting my feet up after work and letting DH do literally everything. Already. I push the water, but most of my walking activity occurs in the mornings before I have had a good chance to get lots of water in. Oh well, at least they stop as soon as I do (for now).

    DH has been reading Dr. Luke's book which is a good thing. I think he realized what I have been trying to tell him - that I have not been getting enough protein or enough rest. Got his attention.

    There is a Mothers of Multiples sale this weekend. I still don't feel like buying anything. Maybe after I get past 28 weeks. DH is at home, so he can take care of all that in good time.

    As for breastfeeding, I amazed by ladies that do it with one baby. I was unsuccessful with #1 for a variety of reasons. This time I will be the sole breadwinner and back to work quickly. Last time I got almost psychotic post-partum depression which went away completely when I started sharing feedings with DH. This time he has actually offered to get all the nighttime feedings, and we are hiring someone full time during the day so he can sleep and get a break. I feel really bad that they will probably not be breastfed much, but I know that it is more than I can handle. And the guilt last time did not help one bit. 3 lactation consultants later and it took my ob-gyn to tell me to stop, to take care of myself and just not to kill my baby. That may sound extreme, but I apparently do not handle sleep deprivation all that well. I know that may make some of you BTDT multiple moms laugh hysterically, but at least I am lucky enough this time to get whatever help I need... plus my MIL offered to take the the babies overnight at her house once per week just so that we can get a reprieve. Hope she keeps that promise. I will go into debt if needed just to get the help we need to survive.

    Definitely try to take it easy whenever you can, I was told BH's are common in twins, sometimes I get a doozy of one that takes my breath away. Clothes, I've gone up 2-3 sizes, each time I thought I was set for awhile, I wasn't (good thing for Old Navy sales & such). Breastfeeding, I'm going to give it my best but have formula on hand. With my first son, I had to supplement formula because he had very bad acid reflux and lost too much weight right away, it was scary. With my second son, I had bowel obstruction after my c-section which really threw a kink into everything. Maybe I'll have better luck this time around, third time's the charm they say.

    Hopefully everything is fine with the weight... I will be honest, when I was in labor the doctor did an ulrasound to see what we were looking at for weight and they were WAY off!! They said that my DD was almost a whole pound smaller which was not how it looked last ultrasound and when they were born, they were only 4 ounces different. Good Luck!! Its exciting anticipating, not one but TWO!

    Passed my final NST, ultrasound looks great, onto my schedule c-section on Monday. What a relief!

    Here's my belly pic today, 37 weeks exactly. (I don't bother with makeup, showers are difficult for some reason...probably all this weight, my belly's low too).

    Wow! You are all baby. I bet you are going to feel great to get them delivered!! And congrats on making it this far.

    I won't worry about the BH contractions when we get to a very viable point, they just make me nervous now while I am just at 21 weeks.

    Congrats! Hope all goes well!!!!!!!

    And I had BH contractions that early - they were never measurable or more than 5-6 an hour, so I didn't worry (too much!) LOL

    You made it full term Congrats x1000. And you look great but I thought the 18th was the big day? Can't wait to hear the babes are here safe and sound. KUP and when they arrive come join us over at the parents side (it's picking up now!). Good luck with the big day. So close. Take it easy, go get a Mani/pedi and try (as hard as it might be) to enjoy your last few days before you have two screaming babes to look after!

    Gabsma03/Sarah had her twins on the 18th, both girls are doing great, hopefully she'll get some time to update us. So another set of twins born here.

    Hope all is well today with you all. My sister brought her kids up for the week. One is 4 and he is handful compared to my kid. And the other is almost 3, also a handful compared to my kid. If I am up doing too much I get contractions, so besides work, I am trying to take it easy. I was hoping the kids would play well together, but their oldest keeps stealing stuff away from the other kids and his tantrums involve crying and wall kicking. I guess it is good preparation for the many fun times to come as we go from 1 rather well behaved child to a 3-child circus.

    Anyway, thinking of you today and really hoping you can just go into labor and be done with this already. I am not sure that there is anyway I could enjoy being that pregnant. Though, at least with one older child, I do know that it is all worth it in the end.
