Monday Goal

Today quite a few people have been giving me the "wow, you are really pregnant" commentary and I have been waddling like a duck. I think they might see something in me that I didn't - one person even told me I looked tired! I managed to meet Husband and Theresa at Ole for dinner in Cambridge but I was feeling kind of crappy before I left to meet them and since I've been home.

Definitely not my peppy self and to use a few pregnancy buzz words I think I just saw my "mucus plug" and some minor "bloody show". Based on "What to Expect When You Are Expecting" I think labor is anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days off although they haven't dropped at all (probably because they are breech and there are two of them). I'd prefer the later since I would like to keep my schedule on track but I know there is no controlling these things or these tykes! Husband says I am just "trying to keep things interesting". I guess Dr. Whatscooking knew what he was about when he scheduled me for Monday!

I promise to keep you in the loop. As Husband said as we read the symptoms in the book - "Oh, God, I guess you are really having babies!" No need to notify the doctor - I have noticed an uptick in Braxton Hicks contractions but don't think I'm having any "real" ones.
