Monday morning chat

I'm taking some inspiration from my friend Shannon and taking these few moments this morning before Chase wakes up to just chat and catch up with my blog readers! I miss blogging but it is getting to be crunch time around here with getting ready for the twins to arrive.

This weekend we had plans to take maternity pictures. I was going to get my hair done and it was going to be great. Then the weather decided to be cloudy with chances of rain which it hasn't been for like 34 days! My friend that was supposed to take the pictures also texted me the morning of saying her son was sick. Luckily my sister-in-law lives super close to the location I wanted to use and was available and takes amazing pictures. Chase is such a ham and I think it might have been a little bit for auntie so maybe we got better pictures using her.

I love the pictures so much. My favorite is the bottom left with Chase on his tip toes. All I see when he kisses my belly is the top of his head so I had no idea he goes on his tip toes and I'm so glad we have a picture of it.
I'm going to be 33 weeks on Wednesday. Yesterday, I was really starting to feel it. A twin uterus at 32 weeks is the same as a full term singleton uterus. It frustrates me to have to tell Chase I need to sit on the couch or that I can't make dinner for the family. I'm trying to listen to my body and slow down.

This cold/flu season has been awful for our family. Last week Hubby was sick and we have lost track of who gave it to who. Knock on wood we are all starting to feel better but I'm so paranoid about scheduling any play dates with friends.

On the to do list today is dishes and folding and putting away laundry. I think I will have to at least take Chase to the park. Mom guilt is pretty bad lately. Last night when I told him I had to sit on the couch he said, "I not want to sit on the couch." I said, "I know mom is no fun lately." He said, "yeah". I thought about reminding him that I had colored with him and played t-ball with him but he's 2.

I start doing non stress tests this week. At first I felt like it was an unnecessary annoyance. I have to go twice a week until I deliver. But after yesterday and being in pain I'm looking forward to checking on my little guys and making sure they are ok. My plan for today is use my maternity belt and ace bandage to try and save my body some aches and pains. Hopefully the maternity belt still fits!

  1. I know it must be hard to not play with Chase as much but when the mom guilt starts to set in remember that he's only 2 and won't hold it against you. He'll forget just as quickly as he noticed!
