And for an update on me! I am thankfully not a big baby, but I am growing two babies so I guess that makes me a big baby baker. My trip this weekend was a total whirlwind, but so much fun. Saturday I went from event to event and ate my heart out. Sunday was the big shower and it was the cutest thing I ever saw. So precious, I can’t even begin to describe the awesomeness. (Will try to post pics soon.) I only cried once, but my mom was a tearful mess the entire weekend.
My favorite gifts were the ones from the heart. My grandmother made baby-sized quilts for each baby, all hand stitched. And my MIL knitted these sweet little sweaters, that are so cute I can hardly stand it! I didn’t receive anything too matchy-matchy or gender specific, which is awesome. Most of our big stuff has been purchased including cribs, car seats, co-sleeper. I can’t believe it. Again, I am so grateful.
I am having one more tiny NYC shower next weekend. We’re doing a fancy high tea. Should be fun!
It’s still hard to believe! All of these people showering our babies with love. I am just so touched. Most of these people have no idea how hard it was to get these babies baking, but it’s special nonetheless. I am so honored to be their mother and I can’t wait to meet them!
As for me, I’m doing very well. I came down with a cold right before I left which meant that I didn’t get to rest this weekend to try to shake it, so I’m still battling some congestion. I’ve been resting nonstop since we got home. I started half days at work this week, which so far is awesome. Thankfully my employer is fantastic. I am actually working from home the other half of the day, just with my feet up in a comfy position. Hopefully this rest will get us good news next Friday.
P.S. My cervix issue isn’t major yet, it’s just a tad shorter than they want. Other than that, it’s closed like it should be so as long as I rest up and take care of myself and these babies, I’m hoping it will he longer or at least the same next week. I have confidence we’ll get a good report. I’m super good at taking it easy. It’s a specialty of mine. 🙂
P.P.S. I am still wondering if my cervical measurements were shorter because of the added pressure of a looming bowel movement. I was just about to go take care of business before I got called back. Haha.
P.P.P.S. I have my 1 hour glucose test on Friday. Wish me luck!
