In Need of a Hobby :-)

Well, yesterday I had a doctors appointment and she asked me how I was holding up. I told her emotionally I was pretty much about done and didn't know how much longer I would be able to handle being pregnant. Just the physical aspects are wearing enough but it has become an emotional balance now as well. She informed me I needed to get a hobby. I wanted to be rude and say how do you get a hobby when you won't let me out of bed...but I just said okay like what? She suggested cross stiching or something I just wanted to laugh...I am not a cross sticher. I guess for now I will go back to knitting, but if anyone has any ideas or has read any good books lately I would love some help on this keep me sane the next couple of weeks!

When a Shower Feels LIke Christmas

This past weekend I was in the hospital for pre-term labor...possibly the scariest and most uncomfortable weekend of my life...but it will be worth it in the end when the girls arrive safely! I am now home on bed rest being lazy per doctors orders which is really weird to see all of the things around the house that need to be done and I can't touch anything. I have shower privileges and I can get food but that is all, other than that I am to be a couch potato! But one thing I truly learned this weekend is how you take the smallest things for granted such as a shower or the ability to go to the bathroom by yourself when you want to without asking someone to come help you. Yesterday I got to get unhooked from my IV for a little while and take a shower and I tell you it felt like Christmas...never in my life had a shower felt so good. I have gone camping for long weekends and been outside gross and dirty and I swear the shower yesterday was a 1000 times better than any other shower I have ever had in my life. It really makes you think about the small things you do on a daily basis that you don't realize how good they make you feel until you can no longer do them freely. So the next time you take a shower...take some time to enjoy it and all the other small things in life that are easily overlooked!

Feet Washing

So this is totally random, but the other day I was listening to the radio and they were talking about a survey on how often people wash their feet in the shower and it made me often DO people wash their feet in the shower? I must admit that I am guilty of not giving my feet the attention they need and I guess I don't find it necessary to bend over each and every day and give those suckers a good wash. Don't get me wrong if I know that they are filthy I will wash them, and at least once a week they get a good scrub...but do you wash your feet daily?
Like I said this is a random thought but I was just wondering what others out there thought about their feet! I personally think feet are gross...clean or dirty but hey they get you from point A to point B so I am grateful I have them...but for now I think I will continue to clean them when I feel it is a must and not on a daily basis...anyone have any thoughts on this?

Measuring 36 weeks...Dr. wants me to hold out 6 More!

Well, once again I have not posted in ages and I have no excuses. I am no longer working it just got to hard and painful and I am so tired all the time I just want to sleep. Our girls are growing like crazy. Last week I was measuring 34 weeks... I will offically be 30 weeks tomorrow and yesterday I was measuring 36 weeks. It is really very crazy, they must be getting big in there. At our last ultrasound both babies weighed over 3 pounds which is great, so we are hoping by the next one at the end of the month they will be at least 4 pounds each if not more. It is crazy to think I have that much baby inside of me already and the doctor wants me to keep them in there for 6 more weeks. I told her I would do my best and I really have a say in the matter.
Other than that I finally got to take my car in to be fixed yesterday...yes it has been almost 3 months since the accident, but they couldn't get me in any will be nice to have the door right and not hear air all of the time when driving. So for the next couple of weeks I am sporting a nice mini van....a possible glimpse into our future? Oh well that is all for now....but I will try to do more updates and write more until the big day and then we will try to keep everyone updated after the arrival!
