Oh the humanity!

It is getting VIOLENT in my belly! I wish I could take a video but my kids don't perform on demand. I can't imagine what it will be like in a few weeks but I have never seen this much activity out of my tummy before! And its kind of weird. Although really cool. Steve always seems to miss it although he said one of the babies punched him really hard the other day. At the baby shower, my sister-in-law said she was watching my tummy because she was hoping to see it move. I wish she could see this. I don't know how it compares to one baby but its pretty amazing.

69 days or less to be pregnant! I'm looking forward to being able to get up off of the floor again. To taking baths without being stuck in the bathtub until Steve comes and gets me out. To not having to answer endless rounds of "When are you due? Oh my god!" (although I'm sure that will be replaced with "Oh my God! Are they twins? How old are they? Are they identical or fraternal?"). To being able to drink soda again. To un-swollen hands. To a back that doesn't hurt (or at least hurts less, I will be holding 2 babies all day). To being able to roll over in bed at night. And best of all, to my babies! If we make it to 38 weeks, that's only 55 more days! Yay!

My goal for this week is to get all my sewing finished and then put my sewing machine away for awhile. It is too too hard for me now. I finished the nursery curtains today and my back was absolutely killing me by the time I was done. Actually, I had to take a break and come back. Yesterday I sewed 4 hooded towels with the girls' initials on them. They turned out so cute! I wish I could post pictures but that would be clues to the names so that's a no-go. Tomorrow I have to sew the other crib skirt (I already have all the pieces cut out) and a pillow for the rocking chair and then I am done! I'll post some pictures next week. My parents are coming this weekend to help wash baby clothes and organize the nursery. Its a disaster since the shower!


  1. Woo hoo for 69 days or less! I'm at 89 days or less, so just a bit behind you! And I TOTALLY know what you mean about the party going on in your belly! My girls go bananas at night after I get out of the shower, and just a little while ago my husband handed me the home phone and I just stuck it on my belly for a minute while I was finishing up typing and the girls went CRAZY kicking it. My husband couldn't believe it - the phone was literally being kicked and punched so hard that it was rocking back and forth on my belly! If only we could make them perform on demand it would be awesome! LOL!
    Oh, and to not have to wait for the husband to come and get you out of the bath. . .I hear you, and I can't wait either! =). Keep up the good work momma!

  2. When I was way pregnant, I remember watching my sister sit on the floor and get up like it was nothing wondering if I'd ever be able to do that again! LOL! Well you will! Can't say much for the back pain though. I'm hoping that when they're able to get in and out of the car by themselves, it will get better ;)

    Hang in there! And treasure these last few weeks of being pregnant! If you're like me, you'll miss it!

  3. Take photo, open in photoshop, select area with names, filter -> gausian blur, post on internet.

  4. If I had photoshop, I would get right on that.
