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!


  1. Glad to hear all the good news!! I love having those future visions too!! What a special time this is!!! XX

  2. I love all those visions! You are going to have so much fun. People will say crazy things to you about how they are glad it isn't them blah blah blah ... and secretly, you can feel sorry for them because the joy of two babies is amazing!!

    Now, I say don't sweat the pop tart and chocolate milk.. but hey... sit still! No more stroller walks around the house!


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
