You mommies are so nice!!
I really cannot explain the stress and uncertainty of all this to anyone else. My mom keeps pushing me to imagine that the babies are coming at 38-40 weeks, and just keep my mind set on that, instead of on all the bad things that could happen before then. But, at the same time, I keep thinking of all the things we need to do, and being "ready" (whatever that means!) in case the babies are early!
And you're totally right, Amy, about the looks people give. I don't feel like pregnant women should be holed up at home.....but the other week, walking around our busy neighborhood with my DH, I felt like everyone was staring at me. I almost cried. And that was at 30 weeks, with 10 weeks to go! It's really not helpful. And it makes me feel weird about going out.
Anyway, I just gave my 4 vials of blood (!!), so somehow a weight is off my shoulders. Whatever's in there, they'll find out...and I'll deal with the consequences at that point.
And for now, I'm going to try thinking about this as my job, and focus on working hard today on these twins.
Let's see how that works!
Thanks for all the fabulous advice.
