I am still at home, babies are still staying put, which I am totally fine with. They seem to be quite happy where they are, and have been kicking Mama non-stop!
Yesterday, I was feeling pretty good. I was tired, but I caught up on a lot of sleep. Cody stayed home with me and rubbed my back, got snacks, listened to be whining – he was basically the perfect husband. He wanted to be home in case we needed to head back to the hospital.
I told this man to go to work today, I would be fine. I woke up at 3am and eventually went for a bath. When Cody got up for work at 5am, I was still in the bath. He helped me out, tucked me in, and kissed me goodbye. I woke up at 10am and had zero energy. I had no desire to eat. I stayed in my bed for most of the day, binge watching Orange is the New Black*. Toby and Asi stayed with me the whole day. I did have enough motivation to shower – except that it was mostly for a nesting-type of purpose…. I felt compelled to shower cause I NEEDED to shave my legs. I also wanted my hair washed and my contacts in just on the off chance we were heading to Sunnybrook. Anyway, I napped for about 45 minutes until Cody called me to say that he was on his way home – and it was then that I realized how cranky I was. Long story short, Cody came home with supper (after I angrily shouted at him that I didn’t want his “25 f-ing cent f-ing ramen noodles” for dinner), and we had ANOTHER long ass “talk” about my anxieties around breast feeding and hospital visits. That’s another story, for another day, though.
I am now in the bath tub** again, and the back ache is starting up once more. I had some twinges here and there today in my uterus, and my back has been a little sore all day – but what can you expect when you lay in bed the entire day? What’s going on now is the same as what happened on Tuesday.
I said it a while ago, but I think Cody will be holding his daughters in time for Father’s Day. In fact, I am thinking tomorrow or Saturday is going to be THE DAY.
Figures I’d deal with labor pains for almost a week!

* I actually have decided that I don’t like OITNB that much. I HATE Piper, and yet I will continue to watch the show cause I need closure.
** my water bill is going to be disgustingly high.
