Adventures in Pregnancy

So... last week I couldn't walk.  Nor could I sit for more than 5 minutes.  Hence the reason not a lot got posted here.

Thankfully there was a snow day at school and the boys were at my parents so Brian could take me to the doctor.  Doctor said?  Nothing to be done.  It's the cartilage all stretched out and the best thing for it is rest.

I'm not actually sure what triggered it, but thankfully I am now walking again and sitting, albeit for no more than about 20 minutes at a time.  I was rather worried about how I would survive the next 6-8 weeks!

And as I mentioned to a friend this morning, I'm very thankful that I know this has an end.  It makes it so much easier to deal with.  I can't imagine being someone living with chronic pain like this.

But really, I'm 30 weeks now and these babies could decide to make an appearance soon!  36 weeks is considered term with twins and that's not so far off... yikes!

Last night I went to a clothing swap and came home with 3 very large bags of newborn through 9 month clothes (plus a few for Noah).  Now to sort and wash!

And finally... I updated my blog design!  Come over and check it out if you get this in a feed reader!  I've actually been working on it for a year, but just needed the right picture for the header and got one from our Christmas photo shoot!


You can even update my button if you'd like to link to me!  See the code on the sidebar.


How are things with you all?

Oh my goodness! Well, that's an adventure indeed. But necessarily the most fun kind. =X

It's hard to believe you are at the end. (But YAY at the same time, right!?) Exciting times ahead.

So glad that you can walk again! And I like the new blog design too, btw!

I can't believe you are 30 weeks already. Oh my goodness, where did that time go?

I'm sorry you've had pain but I hear you. When I had my first set of twins, I hardly felt any of it. Okay, i was ginormous by 35 weeks, when they arrived but other than that there were not many other issues. With Ivy and Noah though, wow. I was in pain alot of the time. I remember trying to walk in a carpark and crying because of the cramps. I put on a lovely show for the shoppers that day. I hope the next few weeks go a little more smoothly for you.

Hooray! 30 weeks! My doctor cheered when I got to 30 weeks with twins... that's great news for your babies. But - ooph! - that pain. So sorry you're experiencing that, and so glad you've got a light at the end of the tunnel. Can't wait to see what the next 10 weeks hold for you!
