Things are wonderful here. Anxiety is very low and I’m really enjoying being pregnant with TWINS this week. We went to the doctor yesterday and had a stellar visit. I passed my first one hour glucose test…way to go Pancreas! The doctor was pleased with everything she saw and I was pleased to see those little Sparks swimming around on that little screen. I love them! I was able to make out the profile of Spark A this time but Spark B was face down but boy does he have a good looking spine! I couldn’t make this out but the doctor said that Spark A was still kicking Spark B in the head. I’m thinking there will be retribution somewhere down the line, so watch out, Spark A. We have to go back in 2 weeks. Funny thing, when I was making the next appointment, the receptionist told me which doc it would be with, then she stage whispered, “He’s not married.” Made me laugh. Dating a doc right now would be extremely efficient although I would drive him crazy with many many obsessive questions and worries. Thanks for looking out for me, Receptionist.
Guess it’s not hard to figure out what gender I think the Sparks are.
I’ve been working with a program this summer which gives a free sack lunch to kids who normally get free lunch during the school year. Every week I would work with different people but some showed up more than once. I worked with a dear woman just a few times and today she came on my last day with a gift for the Sparks. This just made me smile and smile. I believe it is their first gift:
In other news, school starts next week and although I’m a little worried about the full steam ahead schedule, I’m ready for a more regular routine. Stretch is starting her sophomore year and has her driver’s permit. So far when I’ve driven with her she’s driven like a 90 year old so I’m not too worried about that. I think she’s pretty excited about the twins coming. Today she asked me about morning sickness and if she could help with a shower.
I’ve begun to clean out the back room and have friends on stand by to paint it when I’m ready. Have I mentioned my home is teeny tiny? I will be moving to the little bedroom and giving them the “big” one or should I say bigger one. I think it’s going to be a very busy fall.
I almost forgot to mention that I turned 42 on Saturday. 42!! We celebrated by going to our local ice cream stand. I think “42 and Pregnant with Twins!” would be a great name for a reality show. Although right now there would be little to film except me “resting my eyes” in the afternoons.
