Waiting on hold

Since being released from strict bedrest I have been getting out a little. So far I have been carted around in a wheelchair at Michaels, Target and Kohls. I feel a bit foolish making Kevin, my mom or Jared push me around but I don't have much of a choice. I have been out to eat quite a bit, trying to make up for lost time. Kevin is sick of doing all the cooking and I just don't have the stamina to do it.

Today is my last day on the medication to keep my contractions at bay. I started to wean off of them yesterday so we are anxious to see what is going to happen. I would love to make it another week or two, the longer the boys stay put the better it will be for them and honestly I'm going to miss being pregnant. This will most likely be our only pregnancy and I'm starting to get sad that this short phase of our life is almost over. I would like to have three children but for now Kevin says two is enough for him.

Despite the stressful couple of months we experienced I really loved being pregnant. Kevin and I had so much fun experiencing the pregnancy together, preparing for the boys arrival and anticipating how our lives are going to change. So we are trying to enjoy every last minute of this experience because we know the end is near and our lives as we know it will never be the same. No more sleeping in and laying around all day, no more vacations on a whim or frivilous spending just because but that's alright with us! We are looking forward to our new lives with the boys and if we happen to get a little sleep along the way that will be a bonus.

I thought for sure that the boys would be here by now. They must be very comfortable just hanging out. We can't wait for them to arrive. UK

Maybe your boys and my Evan will share a VERY special birthday. And they'll look oh so cute in those little Christmas caps.

Thinking of you four!!!
