Congratulations, Kate, for making it to 37 weeks! I talked to my babies everyday, too, telling them to stay in til 40 weeks. At 37 weeks I had a mini-breakdown and told them I changed my mind and to please come out now.
But they were good babies and listened to their mama and stayed in 40 weeks plus 1 day. The last 3 weeks of my pregnancy were so hard, mainly because I just wanted to know WHEN they were going to come. I would torture myself thinking, ok they could come today at 37 weeks, but what if I go a week late, that is another 4 weeks!!!
: I just tried to keep myself busy and indulge myself. On a daily basis I kept picturing how big and fat my babies were getting and everyday in the womb was a gift to them and that helped A LOT. I was in excrutiating pain (pubic symphisis) and would cry getting off the couch or rolling over in bed. I had to roll out of bed onto my birth ball, bounce a few times on it, then try to stand. People were constantly telling how huge I was, I couldn't possibly get any bigger, the babies were getting "over cooked", 37 weeks was long enough, etc. It bothered me but at the same time it gave me more resolve to prove them wrong and to show them that I would go even longer and have the healthiest twins they ever saw.
You can talk to me whenever you want. It helped me talking to another MDC twin mama here who went 3 days past 40 weeks. Hang in there!!
