So today I am 34 weeks and 3 days and SO ready for my sweet little aliens to be here! Mr. B and I have been very busy over the last few weeks. On my birthday, April 2nd, that night at dinner he told me he had been offered a job as offensive coordinator at a new school one hour away from where we currently live. I knew this was coming since our good friend had taken the head coaching position at this same high school and they had always talked about working together like this until Mr. B gets his own head coach position. I cried. I cried a lot. We couldn’t have designed a worse time to move. To sell our house, for me to find a new job, to have TWINS!
Since then everything has gotten much better but still a little stressful. I came up with an agreement with my current manager for a new schedule that allows me to work every Monday and every other weekend which allows me SO much time at home with the babies. Keeping my job was very important for me because that was one thing that wasn’t changing, thank goodness! It saved my sanity. Really.
Now we are trying to sell our house. It has been on the market for about two weeks now and has been shown many times. We decided to redo the hardwood flooring and picked a really nice guy who we think just didn’t know how to work with this material so now we are having to redo the flooring a second time! Which kind of pisses me off because all of these potentials buyers can’t see what the final product will look like. We have a new floor guy who will get started this week. Ugh. It doesn’t seem like much but believe me, living this and worrying that these babies could come anytime during this chaos is a constant stressor.
So how about a Bumpdate?
We are 34 weeks and 3 days. 3 1/2 more weeks!!!!
Stretch marks arrived last week but they are still skin toned and not red and super ugly yet.
My wedding rings have been off for a long time, I’ve been wearing a ring that was always too big.
I started weekly cervical checks and NSTs at the hospital two weeks ago. Both cervical checks revealed that my cervix is closed, very thin, and low. My NSTs have been reactive and normal with some contractions but nothing to write home about.
My total weight gain has been 24 lbs so far! I am so pleased!!
I cannot wait for my little aliens to get get here and to snuggle! I packed our hospital bags ( ours and the babies’ )
Next we need to put the car seats in my car and we will be all set!!!
I will leave you with a picture my coworker took when I stopped by to talk to my manager, then another when I flashed her my belly in the parking lot at work!
Bless you all! I swear I have been reading posts and keeping up just been busy with my own mess.
