Baby 4: 33 Weeks 6 Days
I'm squeezing this in at the last minute today. I always try to take a picture on this specific day in each pregnancy, because I had the twins at 33 weeks, 6 days. You can click on my post from Marlowe's pregnancy to see how big I was then, but really, I feel like I'm about the same size. I always spend today thinking about when the twins were born. It was such a happy day, filled with a little suspense and a little concern. But the happy memories stand out more than anything.
Tony and I have both suddenly realized that this baby is coming ... soon! He's working furiously to finish our main level and kitchen renovations, and I'm helping too ... but my help isn't quite as effective or strong as it was even a few weeks ago. But, thanks to help from friends and family, and a big "push to finish" last weekend, we're almost done! So, I'm making some birth necessity / baby necessity purchases and thinking about what to take to the hospital. I should probably do some freezer cooking, but we don't have countertops. :)
I usually try to look nice for my belly shots, but today was just one of those days. I'm tired, I'm big, and the kids were a handful today. But, we have persevered! They are all sleeping! Go team. Sometimes you have to celebrate the little things. :)
