Today I got a call from New York. Maureen introduced herself as another mom from the MOST (Mothers of Super Twins) who was just checking in to see how I was doing. I told her that I was doing pretty good … just feeling really cranky these days. She told me that there was a logical explanation! The first thing I thought of was that I couldn’t wait to tell Doug it wasn’t my fault!!
She explained that at 26 Weeks gestation with triplets, my uterus is the size of a full term uterus in a singleton pregnancy. Therefore, my hormones are ragging and telling me to nest and get all my stuff done because the babies are on the way. That’s not the case for me (knock on wood), but my body doesn’t know the difference. So all my stress or snapiness is because my body thinks the babies are coming next week! Who would have thought….
An even better happening today was that my coworkers sent out an invitation for my baby shower on Thursday. It was SO adorable (complete with cartoon owls … my new obsession!) and I can tell how much work they are all investing into this celebration. I know that I love my coworkers … and I’m usually the one planning the baby showers. It’s just so overwhelming when someone (or in this case a whole team) goes out of their way to celebrate you. I couldn’t be more blessed! Can’t lie … I cried when I read the invite. I blame it on being preggers. But I already know that I’ll probably cry at the shower too! I love me work friends!
