I wasn't going to post today so that maybe you guys would all think that I got a life, but I didn't, so here I am!
It is FINALLY sunny here! Kansas has been a crappy, dark gloomy place for too long now. I have only lived in sunshine before moving here for college nearly 8 years ago. Winters make me depressed and grouchy. I used to go tanning because I heard that helped but then I realized I don't really want skin cancer so I tried happy pills instead.
Instead of wishing that I could sleep better so that I could see my babies sooner (my original plan was to sleep 20 hours a day for bedrest but that's not working out), today I could look out the window and start dreaming. I could see myself swinging the babies from the tree in the backyard. I could see the babies playing in the mud in our raised beds out back. I wheeled the stroller around the house for practice today when I can take my babies out for walks in the sunshine. I saw the four of us sitting at the little table on our back deck having dinner that hubby barbequed and enjoying the evenings with a glass of wine. I saw us walking to the park behind the house and watching the monkeys feed geese or swinging on the wooden swing next to the lake. Of course I saw lots of snuggles and kisses.
In all my joy I made a boo boo and had a glass of chocolate milk and a chocolate pop tart. It was the wrong thing to do, but it was delicious. I'm going to be a good girl and eat turkey chili for dinner to make up for it.
The three of us got a clean bill of health at the peri appointment today! The babies both passed the BPP within minutes. He checked my cervix because I told him of the pressure I've been having. It is smaller, down from 3.7 to 2.5, but no funneling. He said because I am short I will probably feel more pressure and it's okay, but we are all doing great! My sugar report from my glucose meter was good and I gained a pound since last week.
For all you "Gleeks" I will leave you with the "Halo/Walking on Sunshine" song from Glee. Love this show!
