16 more days...... the earliest. I was told at my doctor's appointment yesterday that I only had 16 more days until they would welcome these little ones into the world. Until then they would do anything they can to stop it. But at 34 weeks they won't stop it and in fact they would start to encourage them to come. Yes that is exciting and I am SO done being pregnant for the rest of my life. But I can't help but think an extra week or two wouldn't be better. Next week I have another ultrasound so we will see what they think about their size. The last ultrasound I had a week ago the babies were measuring a little small. so I have about 2 weeks to 6 weeks left (they won't let me go past 38 weeks). Anyway, everything is Normal. I didn't even bother to tell him that I have morning sickness again or anything. Really what's the point. Anyway, I'm dilated to a 1 and babies are looking great. Or I guess they are sounding great.

It is funny when you are pregnant and all of a sudden you body becomes the topic of discussion. When people normally would never tell a woman she is huge or any of the comments that are free game while pregnant. Twins are no different and because I have started showing so early, the comments have been coming for a while. My rational, level headed self knows that this is just what people do and that they care or are curious or whatever. But I don't think it is a secret that I am not level headed or rational right now. To strangers it is easy, I usually just tell them I am due in November or December (I am due in Nov. ) and then fail to mention that there are two and walk away. They look so shocked at how huge I am. Whatever, I should get to be a brat to complete strangers. It is a little harder when comments come from people I know since I am still trying to hold back some of my comments. ( I think I am very funny, but really I think I will probably come across as a grouchy hormonal pregnant lady.)

I have looked on a couple of twin boards online and one common annoyance is people asking if they used invetro (IVF) to get pregnant. I guess I never thought about it. My first thought was that they were just being sensitive. Their complaint was its none of your business how I got pregnant. Okay they have a point but really is it that big of a deal. To me no not really. However, last night I was at Brenten's soccer game and a lady (who I didn't know ) asked if we used IVF. I really didn't mind answering but I was taken back a little. It really isn't any of her business how we conceived. And if we were a couple who perhaps has struggled with fertility this could be a little bit more than annoying.
