Like Water for Heartburn

We are huge - like Jabba the Hut huge...

Yup, still pregnant.

These babies show no sign of wanting to go anywhere!

I can understand why they might want to stay where they are - the food supply is constant (chocolate ice cream, chocolate brownies, hot chocolate... mac n' cheese), it's warm, they are carried around everywhere and can nap whenever they please, there aren't any wet, dirty diapers and they can cuddle on each other whenever they like.

For me who is carrying them things are not so easy. I can only sleep an hour or two at a stretch (practice for later, right?) The joints in my crotchal area feel like someone has been after them with a baseball bat. And lately, when I am trying to sleep, I get heartburn from the water I drink before I go to bed!

Good times.

I've been working still, on a day-to-day basis, though I took today off as a mid-week recuperative day. I just can't decide whether or not to go back tomorrow. The whole broken crotchal area makes commuting less than fun, but I don't want to waste any of my maternity leave. I selfishly want to save it ALL for when the babies are here.

Whenever that might be.

Any hoo, I have made a small amount of progress in the nursery. The babies won't have to go naked or diaperless when we bring them home! Euge put together their crib in our room and it is HUGE. I feel like they will be swimming around in there.

I have to go finish packing my bag for the hospital because, really, this is getting ridiculous. Sometime in the next seven days, these babies are going to be evicted.

I can't believe it! Seven days! There is really a limit now! We know! So soon! Yaaaaaay!!!

You don't even look like you are part of your own body.I mean, that is, like, the bag you packed for the hospital, sitting there in your lap? Right? Or something.
