20 weeks | 2nd Trimester

What a week! I'm exhausted. I've been accused of being quiet on Facebook recently. Just trying to hide my crazy more. You're welcome.

Sunday morning kicked off the week with contractions that landed me in L&D, being monitored for a few hours. I woke Dr. P up at 7am & told me to get my ass into L&D & he would meet me there. Apparently, this is normal at this time during twin pregnancies, but it was very scary & unexpected. Everything looks great, no issues, but it only confirmed Dr. P's hunch that I need to take it insanely slow and painfully low-key. I have multiple witnesses now who have heard him say, "no cooking, no cleaning, no bending over, no lifting, no walking more than 15 minutes in a store, no buying anything in the store {because of the lifting & such}." For those of you who know me well, you know that this is a test for my OCD. I want to pick things up, I want to clean the dishes in the sink, I want to wash our smelly dog, I miss picking up my girl. But alas, I cannot. If it means that 2 healthy little boys will be here in as little as 14 weeks, then I can put my OCD on hold. 

Thank you to all my visitors. You're keeping me sane. Thank you for the LITE iced, SOY chai tea lattes {#highmaintenance}, thank you for those of you making us dinners {MIL has worked her butt off making us some wonderful dinners & freezing them!}, and thank you for praying for us. This has not been the easiest season, but you're getting us through it with your love, care & prayers. 

If you see Josh, pat him on the back. He's a superhero. From doing all the housework to dealing with daily sob fests, he is wonderful, amazing, super. He also deserves a vacation. Away from the crying pregnant lady.
