Bedrest and the Olympics.

It's official... with roughly 3 Weeks left I'm on bedrest.

I have to's not that bad. Hubby had to take leave to take care of the punkin.So he has off this week and then my mom will be coming up for 2 weeks. Hopefully, These kids hang in and my csection will go off without a hitch on the 15th. I guess I'll find out on Thursday. I'd love to have these kids on the 8th but I guess we'll see. I mean I'm carrying almost 11 lbs of babies and boy are they HEAVY.

When I went over to the Hospital the other night and they admitted me.. I was the ONLY person in the OB Ward. It was very cool to have all the attention and now I think I know every nurse by name.LOL. The hospital food here is kick ass... I was totally shocked. I got a menu and everything.

So I'm trying to be a good patient.. it is still hard considering we still have a 3 year old. She is still not totally understandng why mommy can't play in her room and can only play in mommy's bed. I feel bad..usually we have Kindergym, Dance and Storytime..but now she's not going to anything. Poor punkin is so bored.

Luckily for me the Olympics is on, that gives me something to watch. I'm an Olympics freak and watch all of it.. including Curling. Hubby and I got married 4 years ago last week when the Olympics was on. So it will always remind me of our wedding week.

Well I guess now that I have all this time on my hands I'll blog more..granted I'm not sure what I'll blog about since I'm stuck in bed..but I'm sure I'll think of something.

Another day

Tuesdays are always hectic in the morning here.

We have Kindergym in the morning so trying to get a 3 year old ready, dressed and out the door on time is always eventful. Add on the fact I preggo it.. well I'm sure you get it. Usually most days she was one of those days believe it or not. It was before that when the fun started.

Hubby got up this morning either with his alarm or before it cause I didn't even hear it, which was nice. I didn't even notice he was up until he was kissing me goodbye. I slept til about 730 when the punkin was yelling for me.

I didn't get up right away.. usually she just lays in her bed watching Mickey Mouse but this morning I hear her get up. I assume she is on the potty. I get up to check on her and she is sitting there on the toilet. COMPLETELY DRESSED in her jammies. Then I hear.. the sound of her peeing through her clothes. There goes my "yay for being potty trained" blog from yesterday.

Now the whole sight was so ridiculous to watch.. I couldn't even be mad. I asked her why she pee'd her clothes she just looked up and shrugged at me.

I love my

After getting her off the pot, cleaned and dressed we made it to KinderGym. Today was her last class until after the kids are born. It's getting a little much for me to get around, I tire out so easily now. I figure there's 10 classes a cycle so by the time the next cycle is good to go.. I should be too.

Meanwhile Hubby is on this new health kick. Since he got back from the sandbox and we Pcs'd... let's just say he's put on some extra weight from the lack of organized PT here and just general hub-ness.(It's a word -I made it up,lol).

A few weeks ago he was told that once he went to WLC he was pretty much on the list to go to the P-Board. Which I was super excited for. We were trying to figure out when a good time would be for him to go so not to conflict with the pending arrival of the kids...when the news came down he failed his tape test. Failure=no WLC=no promotion. Hence the sudden workout gung-ho-ness(another invented word).

Ever since getting here I hoped he would get all motivated to possibly put in his packet for PA (physician's asst) but no luck... he is definitely more motivated to be promoted, way more than he ever was in Hawaii... so hopefully the gym, protein shakes and fitness mags will pay off.

It's been over a week and so far he is still all about it. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump is one of those movies that whenever it comes on I have to watch it. That: Shawshank Redemption, Blue Crush and Showgirls. Yea yea I know...Showgirls.

So there's been so many things I've wanted to blog about since the last time I signed on but everything seemed to pass by before I had the chance to actually blog about it. Now it just seems to late.

Such is my life.. Day Late, Dollar short.

I'm getting closer to my due date... well not my actual due date .. but the doctor imposed due date for the twins. The specialist said one thing (36 weeks)and my obgyn(38 weeks) said another.. but as much as I'd like to be the early due date.. I'll try and split the difference. I'll probably be as big as house by then and non-mobile but whatever. Hubby wants the kids to be born on St. Patrick's Day.. but I said I really didn't want them to turn 21 on that specific day of the year. I guess I just think too far ahead,lol.

Punkin is now officially potty trained(knock on wood). Took 3 weeks of hardcore no pull-ups during the day.. now she hasn't worn any to bed or out and about for a week. I'm so happy she did so well. I don't even have to help her anymore with the pee pee.. she does it all on her own including the flushing and washing hands. Saves me some money before I have to go and start buying diapers all over again.

We've got 2 sets of neighbors moving out this month.. one is getting out and the other is going to my old stomping ground of Hawaii. I'm kind of jealous.. I miss it way more than I thought.I hope the new families have kids.. that'd be great for the punkin.

I haven't really made any friends over here. There's one mom from kindergym that we had our first playdate with last week. Punkin had fun.. they're due to PCS in June. I'm back to square quite a change from when I had a support circle at Schofield. The only positive is that all my real friends are only an hour and a half away.. so I have them when I need it.

Sorry this was a lame post.... they'll get better.. I promise.

I just need to be more on the ball.
