i barely slept last night and woke up with the trots and back pain... i just feel funny, can't put a finger on it! i'm only 35w5d (but my mw is estimating them to be around 7ish pounds each at this point, based on my fundal height related to their positions, and how big they feel! i make 'em big!) and was hoping to make it to 36 weeks. i also really didn't want to birth on the weekend, because i think our families will be over here peeking in the windows while i'm in labor so yeah, i'm torn here! i don't want to *wish* for babies this early, but oh good gosh does my back hurt and 51+cm of fundal height is so much more painful than it sounds. the cramps are making me cranky and annoyed and walking sucks anyway because of my SPD and ugh. thankfully twins' lungs develop faster than singletons', so we don't anticipate any breathing issues (my dd was 36w5d and fat and healthy, which is also very reassuring.) i just feel ambivalent- dare i say I'M (almost) SCARED?

so, maybe this weekend! i have a feeling this crampy achey irritating confusing "is it labor or not?" crap is going to go on for a while, though, so everyone pray i make it to at least sunday night so i'll be 36w and so everyone's in bed sleeping when i'm laboring and no one's bugging me, hehe!

i hope everyone is well!
