My poor DH has had it in the neck at bit today -I am seriously irritable. As is typical in pregnancy, there is no actual reason for it, I just am cranky! I am also tired, I have had fairly low energy this weekend and I don't think that has helped too much.
Have made some progress in getting ready for the twins arrival: have had a good sort out and DH has filled the loft with boxes of things that were occupying our room; thus creating space for a cotbed. When my parents moved house, their 'grandchildren' bunkbeds were too big for the box room, so we have inherited them. Don't need to buy a new cotbed now, as we have enough, just a new single mattress for one of the bunk beds. Have got some size 1 nappies in a bag with some toiletries for when we go to hospital. I probably won't do anything else until September now regarding that, although I'm starting to realise just how much stuff I'm going to need to pack for 2 babies, particularly as it's more likely will be in hospital for more than 24 hours.
When I visited my parents, I ordered a twin buggy for 'testing' as they had none in stock. I'm looking forward to testing it out in a few weeks time and hopefully it will be good. Some of the twin prams/buggies you get are just mental. It's all very nice if you can afford £700 upwards, however, they were so bulky when collapsed they would never fit in the boot of a 7 seater MPV with 6 of the seats up. So a traditional side by side it looks like it will be for us.
I have taken up a new cross-stitch to keep myself occupied in the evening. At the rate I'm sewing, I'll be done within a month, so will need to find a new, low energy, hobby to occupy myself with for the last 6/7 weeks.
The babies are quite active, although they have quiet spells sometimes now too. I won't see any nhs people for about a fortnight and admittadely get a little concerned if I haven't felt anything for a while. I tend to feel most movement on my right side, but occassionally get movement elsewhere. I feel like the babies are fine, obviously there are two placentas to cushion the movements and they do move around in different places, so I'm trying not to concern myself too much.
My DH and I had the rare opportunity to go out by ourselves one evening last week, whilst my Mum babysat. Just a trip to the cinema & take away after, but it was soooo good! As I'm getting larger all the time, I'm almost getting more uncomfortable, so these kind of outings will happen less. Must try and get out together again soon though.
1 week of the summer holidays down - 5 to go. I will survive!!!!
