So my last post was kind of whiny and sad. Sorry about that. I do think I'm afforded some mope time what with Chris gone and all, but I don't need to spread it around. I'm healthy, all my kids are healthy, and I have a warm home. I should concentrate more on the positives in my life. Like babies.
I'll be 30 weeks tomorrow. So far, I've had no complications whatsoever. My dr worried briefly about my cervix, but an ultrasound showed it to be completely fine. The babies were 2 lbs 7 oz and 2 lbs 8 oz at 27 1/2 weeks, so I think they're probably three lbs each or close to it now. They move a lot, and I love feeling them move just as much as I loved feeling Ben move around when I was pregnant with him. Although, I'm sure they will be a lot more painful than Ben was really soon. I should really take a belly picture to post. I'm so crazy huge. I think I'm full term size now. I've gained less than I gained with Ben, though. I think I'll either gain the same amount as I did with Ben, or maybe a little bit more by the end of this pregnancy. Most of the weight is in my belly this time, though, less in the flabby arms and double chin. It's coming, though. I'm sure of it.
I'm pretty excited about tomorrow morning. I made a video for Ben at Portable North Pole. You fill out some questions and upload some pictures, and it gives you a personalized message from Santa. Ben freaking loved it. He squeals with delight every time he watches it. And now he thinks that anyone with a white mustache is Santa.
Yeah, anyone. I'm pretty sure he probably won't connect the dots between Santa and all the presents he's going to get tomorrow, but I'm still pretty excited. Santa was a pretty exciting thing to me when I was little. I can't wait to share that with Ben. I also made a stocking for him because I couldn't find any to buy that I liked. I found some pretty cute Christmas John Deere fabric and lined it with green fleece. Ben liked it a lot because it has tractors on it. The kid likes tractors. He always has.
Anyway, I should probably stop procrastinating now. I'm throwing the Christmas dinner at my house tomorrow, so I need to tidy things up a bit before it gets too late. And also start a fire. I'm freezing.
Merry Christmas (or whatever you happen to celebrate) and Happy New Year to you and yours!
