The ritual sacrifice of underwear
Current mood: full

I’m beginning to feel like one of the hippos from the Disney movie “Fantasia”, only less limber.
My size 12 undie were getting too tight, so I had to cut through the elastic waistbands so I could wear them another week. My size 14’s still fit, but probably in the next week or so, I’ll have to start hacking away at them too. Unfortunately, Walmart doesn’t sell size 16’s, so I might end up wearing about as much as that ol’ hippo up there!
I recently switched OB’s. Not the easiest thing to do when you’re 7 months along with twins, but he was willing to take me on. I was getting the feeling with the old OB that she was just “yes”ing me about trying to avoid a c-section. And in any case, she told me that there was only a 25% chance she’d be my attending OB at the birth, because she shares the practice with 3 other people whom I have not been able to meet.
So I found the new OB (recommended by the doula we’re going to hire), and he’s pretty nice. He’s from CANADA! He’s SO polite and patient.
He also has a solo practice, and just has another OB fill in for him every other weekend. He’s also willing to try for a regular birth as long as the babies are ok.
In other news, I got my first ever Mother’s Day card! Thanks Mom! I loved it!
Tomorrow I go on a tour of the pediatrician’s office and hopefully pick out one of their pediatricians. We’re hoping for someone who is open to naturopathic medicine and won’t regard it as the equivalent of swinging a dead cat overhead under the light of a full moon!
Both the babies are kicking away merrily – one kicks out and the other focuses on kicking my guts. How nice, they’re cooperating. Isn’t teamwork a lovely thing?
My husband has continued to put his cookie supply way overhead out of my reach. He also has the nasty habit of eating them out of the box/bag and LICKING his fingers before reaching for the next cookie. Jeez, even if I COULD reach them, I wouldn’t want to eat any after watching him do THAT!
That’s pretty much it for now. Have a great Mother’s Day everyone!
