(I, um, drew the blue "outfit" with Microsoft Paint! )
more of a front view of 39 weeks (you can sort of see the bandage from my stab wound from my unfortunate late-term ice cream opening incident. Advice....don't try to cut the band off a Ben & Jerry's pint with a sharp knife on your countertop....it might slip and, well, your belly is out there. That was a scary ER trip at 35 weeks.)
I know that everyone has their own philosophy about money, but for me, I didn't care if we had to go into debt to:
a. have a homebirth if insurance wouldn't cover it (thankfully they did!)
b. be comfortable and healthy in my pregnancy
So, I spent money on food, acupuncture, chiro, massage. I needed to feel good for a lot of reasons, and I did! If you have the means at all to get the care you want/need, please do so. Or let people in your life know that is what you want. We got all our baby things handed to us from friends/family and the multiples group in our area, so people gave things that would help US rather than cute baby blankets, etc. Letting people help is also accepting love in various forms.
I only made it to 33 weeks 1 day- here's my belly the day before I had the boys:
