It's an interesting time we're in.
Over 31.5 weeks along. With twins which they tell me usually come early.
Are the twins going to come tomorrow? (The Braxton Hicks contractions Tuesday made me wonder!) OR are they going to be some of the few that actually make it close to the due date?
As my husband and I put things away in the nursery late last night, I wondered if we needed to be doing these last minute things or not......will we be glad that we did when the babies come early or are we going to have a good part of November and part of December to wait?
Oh the anticipation and uncertainty of waiting for twins to come! :) Love it though!

OH what a nice weekend it was
Makes it hard to go back to work on Monday, that's for sure!
We had our third of 3 baby showers this past Saturday
My family members hosted one for us in my hometown this weekend for family and for local friends.
It was a great time and we got a lot of neat things.
My aunt did all kinds of things for the 'twin' theme.........
on the menu they had
Pears (get it.......pair.........)
Twice baked potatoes
Double chocolate brownies
Double decker sandwiches
Double stuf oreos
They gave out huge pears and packs of double mint gum as favors. It was very fun
Also this weekend we celebrated my 4 nieces and nephews' birthdays on Saturday. These are my brother's 4 kids. They are 2, 5, 7, and 9.
Such cute ages!
But alas back to work today. So thankful for the weekend though!

So my skin, mostly the top of my baby bump, has gotten really not just itchy but also painful-feels like it's on fire......I have been reading up and I'm wondering if it isn't a PUPPS rash- or maybe it's something else.
I'm going to ask my doctor.
But if anyone has dealt with pregnancy PUPPS skin problems, or just skin irritation/itching/on-fire feeling in general, let me know what worked for you!!
I have used a cold cloth and that helps and I apply a lot of lotion but I'm not sure what else to do until I ask my doctor.

So I have been trying to keep reading online about things to do with pregnancy and delivery. The internet has actually been a great source of information for me.
However, now that I'm over 30 wks along, I'm more reading things about labor and delivery- instead of the side effects, etc of pregnancy that I used to read.
In some of my reading yesterday, I read an article of things that women said no one told them about labor and delivery that they wish they'd known. Sounds like a great idea right? Not so much.
The stories were horrific and made me question whether or not I can do this.
But that reminded me that this will be another time, as with so many others in my life, when I will just have to trust God and put it all in His hands.
I can't do it, not alone. But I can do it in His strength. I will trust Him to get me through it. :)
