I went to the hospital for one last specialist appointment. Had an OB appointment down the road too. Nurses added up how many doctor visits I had in all. Can't remember the exact number but between the two practices it was over 40 appointments. This is a subway stop I know so well...
Dinner with our our parents and celebrated their b-day knowing the boys would be coming in about 12 hours time (scheduled). This was the same restaurant we went to with the parentals months earlier in the pregnancy celebrating the good news. Overlooks Columbus Square. My NYC favorite largely for sentiment value
Where can we turn for peace?
Our final night was 34 weeks 6 days. I might speak more to this later. but I loved my baby bump so much. The feeling of babies in utero is perhaps one of the greatest feelings ever. I know many don't like it because of the aches and pains that might accompany it. But my thoughts were very different. I wish I could have carried longer.
At about 1 am on the day of delivery, Andrew painted Mariah Carey's twin butterfly. I remember when she tweeted her boy/girl twin butterfly. I had been wanting to do this for a while. Although I left it to the last minute, it was fun. The "dem babies" is silly but wanted to completely mimic hers.
I'm really sorry if you're grossed out by the bare belly. I'm always a little grossed out by others. But obviously comfortable with mine own. Sorry if it makes you gag.
