It's obviously been a busy time, as I haven't posted in over a month! With band contest season in full swing, and as we anxiously prepare for the twins to arrive, I haven't had much time to blog (nor have I had the energy)!
The nursery is finally "finished". I put it in quotes, because I still need to hang a shelf & find a cute little table to set next to the glider. BUT... if the twins came today, I think it's ready enough to make it work! I'll have to post pictures tomorrow, since I'm too lazy right now to get out of my comfy recliner.
I went for my checkup over a week ago, when Dr. McNabb told me I was 1cm dilated & 50% effaced. Of course, Mom was MORE than thrilled to hear about the progress, so she quickly went to the store and got me some slippers & some other "necessities" that she knows I'll need in the hospital. She swore that "it was time". This past week was spring break, so I got some much needed rest, and I soon realized that my body was no longer willing to allow me to do the things I wanted to do. I had a few weak spells where I got really clammy & had no energy, so I went in to see Dr. McNabb again on Friday. I'm now at 1 1/2 cm & 75% dilated, and of course, the babies are thriving! I had another weak spell today over lunch with my parents, where we all quickly decided that I didn't need to go into work anymore (I was originally going to do half days).
So here I sit... WAITING. I pray that these babies come at just the right moment, so Chris doesn't have to rush to make it in time or I don't have to sit in rush hour traffic trying to make it to the hospital.
On a very sad note... Chris found in January that his high school band director (yes, the person who we ALWAYS make a point to see every time we visit St. Louis, and also the person who flew down to Texas just for our wedding) had been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Of course, when Chris talked to him back then, Bob downplayed everything (this is the type of guy he was), so we were hopeful of a recovery. Chris found out this week that Bob had taken a turn for the worse and was on life support. Sadly, we found out that Bob passed just a few hours ago. He's in a better place, but it's hard to take it all in at once. Please pray for Bob's family, friends, former students, and that the twins come in a timely manner so Chris can go to the funeral AND see the birth of our sweet little angels.
