Week Thirty-Two
~ Where Are the Breaks?

From what I've read, most women say the last weeks of pregnancy go by at a snail's pace. I feel like I'm being flung at my due date kind of like someone playing horseshoes in the backyard. The little metal post is in view and I'm the horseshoe flying through the air yelling "hold on, wait a second" . . . we all know how well blunt metal objects stay airborne smile. I just don't feel ready for the babies to arrive yet. I still feel like I have about four months left to go, and we only have eight weeks at the most.

Our regular two week OB appointment went well. Everything is still fine. I'm actually measuring 38 weeks. No wonder it feels like I'm going to come "unzipped" any minute. I only gained two pounds over the last two weeks which brings me to 176 lbs. I keep forgetting to ask why Dr. W. has a tank of nitrous oxide in one of his examining rooms. I was supposed to ask him about home support also but I forgot that too. I did mention not wanting to have any more ultrasounds and not being able to go to North Bay every week for appointments (not at 3/4 of Shawn's work day gone, $30-40 for a babysitter plus gas). He said the ultrasound was needed so I agreed to have one more. I'm going to pray this time that all the measurements get done within 30 minutes instead of an hour and a half. I will be seeing my family doctor, in town, every other week so my trips to North Bay stay at every two weeks.

My youngest brother was sworn into the Reserves last week. He's still in high school so it's only a weekend and summer thing for now. My mom said his first weekend was "interesting" but he survived. I feel kind of out of the loop. I miss so much because we live so far away.

Shawn's family invited us to come down south and have the babies there. My response was "uuuummmm, no". I thought the gesture was really sweet. Everyone was willing to help out but I really want to have them here where things are familiar to me. It would be just too much of a shock to the system, and I think I'd be really stressed out.

I got to see the pictures from K and M's wedding last week. I don't look as bad as I thought I would but I also don't look like myself. I'm looking forward to getting my shape back eventually.

Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas!!
