38 Weeks

Almost anyways.  I'm not sure if anyone else is paying attention, but a pregnancy is 40 weeks.  That means only two weeks left.  REALLY????  I'm about to be a mom to three boys under two.  That spells INSANITY!  I mean pure love :)  I officially stepped in to the mom club and bought a minivan.  It's pretty hot.  This will go down as one of those "I will never do this" things.  It was the only thing that made practical sense because we will have to buckle all three kids in ourselves.  I hate to admit it, but it is actually kind of nice.  It's very easy to get the boys in and out and there is so much room!  We pretty much have everything ready to go for Bray's arrival.  We need to get the car seat down and cleaned and put in the van and then we have to put his co-sleeper up in our bedroom, but that is it.  Robert keeps reminding me this can be done in a matter of minutes.  I was supposed to be scheduled for a repeat c-section at 38 weeks, but my doctor decided to go on vacation for two weeks.  Can you believe that?  I'm having a baby here?  I kid.  She deserves it.  I will now be having him a little after 39 weeks.  This scares the crap out of me because a) I'm miserable and b) I'm not supposed to go in to labor.  Although the weird person in me wants to know what labor is about.  I was checked last week and nada, so I'm sure he is staying put.  I'm embarassed to say (actually I'm not embarassed at all) I have gained almost as much weight with this singleton as I did with the twins.  I'm really not even sure how that happened.  Maybe it was the two breakfasts I had to eat in the second trimester to not get sick?  Who cares though.  I lost all the weight from the twins and some so I'm not that concerned about it.  Plus I am officially pregnant the longest I have ever been pregant.  The boys were about 3 days old at this point.  It really is weird the differences in the pregnancies.  I can feel this little guy so much.  I feel him trying to do head stands.  I feel him rolling. I feel everything.  The movements are more painful.  I also can feel the pressure down below.  I don't think the twins ever had a chance to drop.  I'm ready for him to be here although I know I will miss him in my belly the moment he is out.  I'm trying to take these last two weeks in.  It's so hard at this stage though.  Here is my 37 week belly.  Can't believe it is almost time. EEEEKKKKK!!!!

Here are the twins for comparison

And just because this was so darn cute.

You look great Momma!
By the way, I'm a bit jealous at you snapping back after the twins, I swear your 37 weeks look like my 27 weeks, you lucky girl!

Adorable pics! I'm so excited for you! You look awesome! I would TOTALLY get a mini van if my husband would get on board but he is dead set against it, lol! I think they are awesome for space and organization with little ones! So many people are having/adopting new babies right now...makes me miss those days so much! Enjoy all of this, momma, as you know, it flies by!
