Under the weather

I love the holidays, but sadly it’s also a time when people get sick. My sister-in-law and I have been trying to figure out a day for her to visit with my niece and nephew. It hasn’t happened yet because the entire family came down with a nasty bug. We’ve postponed the visit several times already and now we’ll just play it by ear.

In my condition, I can’t afford to get sick. I’m afraid of additional pressure to my uterus. Heck, I don’t like to blow my nose while standing up! It feels like I’d push the babies right out. So if I caught a cold/flu, I’d be afraid of placing added stress to my already burdened belly. That coupled with possible infections make me cautious.

Regrettably, I missed my other sister-in-law’s visit. Apparently, she's caught something too. Mike’s youngest sister was in town for the holidays. Since she’s working Christmas, she came down from Northern CA for a few days beforehand. We were hoping to see her last night. Unbeknownst to her, she was going to help Mike pick out our Christmas tree. I’m not kidding when I say Mike’s all over the place, doing everything! Getting a tree has been on the list for weeks, but he just hasn’t had a chance to get one. Now we’ve got less than a week to go, but to make up for it we’ll be one of those annoying people and keep it well into the New Year. Better still, we’ll hang onto it until the babies arrive!

And I’m sorry to say, my super-hero husband has succumbed to sickness too. We’re now sleeping in separate rooms. After being separated for 3 weeks when we first moved, I thought we were done with that. Not surprisingly, I didn’t sleep well last night.

Way to go Mike!

I hadn't looked at your blog in a while, Lisa... so I just went back and read most of the entries. You're really a trooper, and I'm so thrilled that all is going well. Before you know it, 6 more weeks will have passed.

I'm not sure if you know or not, but I'm a triplet. We were born 5 weeks early back in 1968, and each weighing approx 3 lbs. Though we had to remain in the hospital for at least a week each.. we were all healthy. I'm saying this to give you hope that it's OK even if they come a little early. I'm praying however that your twins will remain healthy and inside you until the perfect time to come into the world!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to both you and Mike!
Love, Lisa Amore
