Have you always lived in Manitoba?
What is the best thing about living in the province to live in?

Teresa (wannabesupermom) and I have known each other online for 4 years, and I kind of got to know Patty (Pattyandthemoos) through her. I joined when they invited me.

I have one brother

The girls really are excited. They tell them it's time to come out every day, and love being at the fetal assessments.

It is! They are both such nice people Teresa and I have one child the same age, actually. That's how we got to know each other.... on another DDC on another website.

Most likely fraternal. They each have their own amniotic sac, but if an egg splits reallllllllly early, identical twins can have their own sac, too.

LOL - me, too!

I do love musicals. We are lucky enough to have an amazing theatre industry in Winnipeg. I haven't been to anything live in over a year, but the last thing I saw was Chicago, and it was wonderful!!!

I don't feel anymore "signs" of labour than last week, just the usual cervical pressure, constant peeing, heartburn/reflux, and being anxious. I go to the doc today, though! He mentioned stripping my membranes if things haven't started, so if I don't come back after lunch time, you'll know why!

It's been very different. I had morning sickness that rivalled dh's aunt's chemo. I couldn't get out of bed, except to go to work for the morning.

I had about 6-10 weeks of comfort, and then I got biiiig! Now I'm just finding this huge mass on the front of my body to be incredible! Turning over at night takes some thinking. Even getting up takes a bit of time, because if I stand up too fast, the pressure on my cervix is uncomfortable. I have reflux, so I need water beside the bed, and Tums are now my best friend.

The other hard part is that you spend the first 36 weeks worrying about delivering an early baby, and then you just want them OUT! LOL. I'm 37 1/2 weeks right now, and am tired.

But - I have truly been spoiled by family and friends. People know I need to take it easy, so I always have child care for my appointments, I've had baking and meals brought over, and my mom and MIL washed my walls and windows for me! The little diva in me likes that part.

I bet that's more of an answer than you expected!
