Weekend Away

Husband and I are finally getting up to Maine for a weekend away. My parents bought a house on Sebago Lake a few years ago. I was so busy working the first half of the summer and preparing for babies the second half that we have not yet made it up there which is a shame. Our friends Dan and Rachael are in town from D.C. and will be going up with us.

Dr. Whatscooking did ask how I felt about delivering the babies in Portland. No way is that happening! But I did feel my first contraction or two (I think). My uterus was like a rock and it sort of hurt all over. No worries though since I only had 2 and they were about 5 hours apart. I slept fine so off we go. Plus the tykes are under strict instructions to keep gestating for a few more weeks.

Enjoy, have a great trip!

(And take it really easy and drink TONS of water... your doctor was only half-joking about delivering in Portland, don't give him a reason to say "I told you so!")

Yeah, I'm always Suzy Sunshine, aren't I? :-)

Have a wonderful weekend, I'm sure it'll be great!

Saw your comment at HDYDI about TV and BFing. Just thought I'd mention that I used to BF when mine were little with the TV on, with a pillow blocking their view (obviously not on their heads, though as I write it it's hard to explain/picture). At some age they started getting really interested in trying to see the TV, which distracted them from BFing, and that's when I cut it off.

Good luck to you. This twin thing is a wild ride, but I hope you love it as much as I do.
