The babies are still in there

It's been a while since I posted so some people started contacting me to see if these babies had arrived or are even close. The answers are no and no! They still haven't arrived, and it looks like it will be at least another week.

I saw the last doctor in my ob's practice that I needed to meet today. She said she had heard all about my "rock star cervix," and she was impressed with my pregnancy. She asked if I had any other major problems besides "elephantitis of the feet." That's how huge they are! The other day, Drew said to me, "No offense, but your feet are really gross." I had gained 8 lbs since last week, but the nurse assured me that it was probably mostly fluid retention. Is it possible that my feet each weigh an additional 4 lbs? They might. I can barely eat so I know it's not from calorie intake.

My dad took me to my appointment today, and I had on flip flops. The little strap on top was totally cutting into my feet, and I think my dad was appalled by it. He became obsessed with buying me a new pair of shoes. He decided to take me to CVS and treat me to a fancy new pair of generic Crocs. Those feel much better than the flip flops. Thanks, dad!

Next week, I head back to my perinatologist on Tuesday and my regular ob on Thursday. I'm hoping I have at least some cervical action on Tuesday so that they will start to consider when they will rip these babies out. I just want to know when I'll be able to breathe again and fit into regular shoes.

Progress on the house continues. Billy is there every day working or supervising workers. I'm not even going to recognize the place when I get there...especially since I've only really seen it twice anyway. We still need some furniture, and I'm thinking of going to Macy's furniture outlet on Saturday. Mems already looked into renting me a wheelchair. Yes, it's embarrassing, but what are you going to do? Billy wanted to me to ride in a wheelchair to my last perinatologist appointment. He kept trying to get me to sit in one. I think he just wanted to push me around and pop wheelies. I stayed upright and walked into the doctor's office with my dignity intact, but I may take him up on it at my next appointment because of these feet. I'm off to elevate them, as usual.
