32 weeks 1 day

I feel amazed that we are here, at 32 weeks.

We’re only 2 weeks away from the final appointment with the “high risk” twin doctor.

Time has both raced along and dragged her feet, and I can’t believe we are getting closer and closer to the day we get to meet our little ones face to face.

And we are *almost* totally ready.

All we need are a second crib and  a breastfeeding pillow (recommendations anyone?).

Everything else is on my “like to have list” …a moby wrap, a bouncer, a swing, but they are all extras.

The last large purchase (stroller) arrived on Friday.

That’s the physical preparations, emotionally we were ready to be parents forever ago. Our friends and neighbours suggested all kinds of things to do (go clubbing, to a movie, to an expensive restaurant) because these are things that they now *miss* doing.

But, we won’t be missing any of those things (the last time we went to a fancy restaurant or a movie theatre was pre-fertility expenses) when you have lawyers fees to pay you just can’t rationalize $40 to watch a movie or a $100 bucks for supper.

And when it comes down to it, we would rather be parents then watch George Clooney.

    What an awesome milestone… congrats on 32 weeks!! It’s funny how slowly and quickly time can pass at the same time.

    No need to spend lots of money to enjoy these last pre-baby weeks… just take a moment to lay in bed snuggling with your husband for a few extra minutes on the weekend, or pause to appreciate that you are eating a hot meal… these are the simple things I miss. Not that I would ever trade to have them back, of course. But I’m still human! 🙂

    Holy cow! Where did time go???

    Happy 32 weeks!!

    Btw, you’re not giving anything up, you’re gaining TWO wonderful children. Non-IF’ers just don’t get it!

    Wow, I can’t believe you are so close! Amazing and exciting! Remember when we first started talking about surrogacy? Time flies (:

    I can’t even imagine what you must be feeling right now… 32 weeks!!! What an amazing milestone!!!

    I also agree with your stance on not spending money on frivolous things.. 🙂 Savour the moments now of anticipation – who are they going to look like, what’s their personalities going to be… 🙂 Enjoy those now…
