31 weeks

I hit a physical wall last week. My bump dropped a bit so it’s getting harder and harder to sit/stand/walk/exist and I’ve gained a staggering 35 lbs (on my once lithe 5’3″ frame that’s a heck of a lot). It’s become apparent that I need to scale back my already scaled back schedule. I’d gone into the city for a lunch, then met my friend in Midtown for a coffee (and had a poke around the L’oreal staff store) and then come home (via WholeFoods of course). (It took me three days to recover!)



28 Weeks

Ten weeks people. Ten weeks!

Ten weeks until I hit full term. None of that forty weeks for me, and the Cylons. We just need to make it to thirty-seven/thirty-eight weeks and we will be in the full-term deliciously awesome zone. The question is how much more will my belly stretch to accommodate them given that this week they have discovered the joys of interpretive dance:

What the heck are they up to, and was that an arm or the Loch Ness Monster? Are they preparing for the Edinburgh Fringe 2012? It’s moments like that that makes having an iPhone essential. Being able to take a quick video of your HUGE belly behaving like a bag of snakes, and then email it off to your nearest and dearest. Though there is something about taking videos of twitching body parts and circulating them that makes me feel like a politician…


Tribeca Parenting – Preparation for Childbirth: Twins

Last weekend Alex and I took Tribeca Parenting‘s Preparation for Childbirth: Twins at their Upper East Side location. I’d looked at birthing classes at a variety of places (including the hospital I’ll deliver at) but I felt that the philosophy of Tribeca Parenting fit with Alex and I’s (a no-nonsense open minded approach), and the twin class is semi-private so there were only two other couples present which was great (and this being NYC they reflected the city’s diversity).  The session was lead by an RN who works in the maternity field at an NYC hospital so she was incredibly knowledgeable, and I felt the material was presented in an educated manner (no dumbing down).
