I don't know that it has really set in but this is our last weekend as husband & wife. Next weekend, we will be husband & wife w/ THREE babies! It is amazing that 34 weeks has gone by. I remember having to go on bedrest in December & thinking that the day would never come when we would meet our trio & now, in about 48 hours, we will be seeing our 2 daughters & our son.
Since this is our last weekend, we are trying to get a few things taken care of & have also taken some fun pictures of me. On Monday, my dad told me that I was exactly like my mother was when she was pregnant. He said, from the back, you could not tell but then she would turn around & BAM! There was this belly sticking out & everyone was shocked. So, if you can believe this, I don't look pregnant from the back. Yes, you read right...and to prove it, I had my mom take a picture b/c like you, I did not believe it.
Also, when they were doing the NST's & I had to lay on my back, it was amazing to see just how much my belly was leaning towards the left which is where our big baby is. I had my mom take a picture of me last night from my feet and I was AMAZED at just how much my belly leaned towards the left. HOLY SHMOLY!
Besides getting some last minute photos, we are working on getting our bedroom back to normal. What is normal? Normal is not in bedrest mode w/ the mini frig & microwave in here. Unfortunately, our bedroom isn't going back to normal, normal. We have a crib, & a changing station cart in here so it will be a while before we have a normal bedroom again. It is ok though. We are looking forward to this part.
No more NST's, no more laying in bed, no more having people do things for me because I can't walk around, no more, no more, no more! It has been quite the adventure these last 34 weeks. I can't believe that it is almost over. On Monday evening I am going to meet for the 1st time, my 3 children. 3 children...at one time. I am going to see what has been growing inside me for the past 34 weeks & who they look like. Then, I am going to be responsible for these little ones for the rest of my life. Ahhhh...motherhood is going to be another exciting adventure!
