Not a "pretty" picture but definatly a real one. :). My husband took the photo and when I looked at it, my comment was "That's how big I am?" Wow.
Today I am 35 weeks. Tomorrow starts the 36 weeks and I know how lucky I am to be this far with twins. I know so many that went into pre term labor and delivered early so I sometimes feel quilty about complaining that the dr thinks I'll make it to 38 weeks. Trust me, I want them to make it as long as possible but I think I'm scared of going into labor. I want to experience labor, I really really do, but waiting for it and then wondering if I will panic when it happens, when will it happen? Will I be alone? Will I get to the hospital okay? Will it hurt a lot? Will the babies be okay? Just scary.
Tomorrow is my 29th birthday. I know every girl has a life plan that she has figured out in early life and waits to accomplish it all. My life plan was as follows:
- Leave for MWSC at 18
- Graduate at 22 w/ teaching degree, specializing in Early childhood/special education
- Marry at 24
- First child at 26
- Second child at 28
- To be living in our own home
Lets see, I did do the first one, not the second, did the third but didn't see the big IF coming my way. I knew it would be hard but didn't know it would be 3 x IVF hard. So now at 29, I will have my two children and still waiting for the last one. Who says it doesn't work out?
