Breast Pump Drama
I need to call my insurance... I tried ordering a free pump (now that insurance covers pumps) and they won't process the order until 32 days before my due date. Considering my due date is 11/08, that would put me at 10/06 for ordering a pump. Average gestation of twins is 35 weeks. That's 10/04. I'd really like to have the pump before they arrive. Granted, I have 2 old Avent pumps from Victor's day, but I'd like to get this pump drama squared away so I don't have to think about it anymore!
The nursery needs A LOT of work still. We have a contractor coming on 9/12 to put shoe molding around the baseboard where they meet the hardwood. When we ripped out the carpet, we were shocked to see that who ever installed it, actually installed 50% of it UNDER the baseboards. So half the room the baseboards meet the hardwood nicely. In the other half of the room, there is a 3/4" gap between the baseboard and the hardwood. A little shoe molding should hide that nicely. Only after that is done can we clean the floors. Then we wait for the area rug to be delivered. I still need to get Victor's crib back from my sis in law. We won't buy a second crib until after the babies are born.
My mom is coming up tomorrow to help me go through the 10+ tubs of old Victor baby things (clothes, bottles, etc) to see what's what and wash the newborn clothes.
I feel so unprepared and 30 weeks is just days away. That's only 5 more weeks til average twin gestation!! Eeeeeek!!
Babies this week
- Baby's getting a little cramped in there, given how fast he or she's growing. But you probably already realize that, since you're feeling all those kicks and jabs.
- Baby's growing white fat deposits under his skin, and his or her energy is surging because of it.
- Feel a subtle twitch? It might be baby hiccupping.
- Baby already measures about 15.2 to 16.7 inches long. Right now, baby weighs about 2.5 to 3.8 pounds but still got a ways to go
