Today is my first day of maternity leave! It's strange to know that I'm done with work for a long time. I am pretty tired and uncomfortable, so I'm not going to have the most productive next few weeks. Just below the surface I feel like cooking all day long and getting every little thing ready for babies, but then there's reality... I can't be on my feet very long (because I start hurting, not due to dr. orders or anything) and I take frequent naps. So, my freezer will remain empty and my house will not be spotless :) I'm okay with that though. I just want these babies to keep growing and growing.
We're 36 weeks today! This was our main goal date, so I'm thrilled to be here. The babies are still very active - moving all over and making my stomach contort into some pretty interesting shapes. One baby (at least one...) has hiccups quite often lately, so that's been fun to feel. The baby girl was hiccuping on our last ultrasound :)
This weekend we worked on getting more ready for the babies. Hospital bag is almost all packed (missing only my toiletries), cameras are charged an on the kitchen table, car seats are installed... I think we're ready!
What am I forgetting to do???
My next appointment is on Wednesday. Hopefully all is still going well!!
