When I was pregnant I found it very uncomfortable.  I felt very guilty because I had dreamed of being pregnant for so many years that it didn't feel right to complain.  I wanted so badly to love it but it was a huge physical challenge for me.  Anyways because of this I didn't post as much as I would have liked to have during my pregnancy.  I was worried I would come across as whiny and ungrateful.  So now I am trying to catch up on some of the events and feelings that I experienced through my pregnancy because I have had some time to reflect.
I never really went through the nesting phase in my pregnancy. I was so exhausted that I think I would have been okay with any nursery as long as I didn't have to do it. Don't get me wrong I wanted the best for my babies but I couldn't even walk up a flight of stairs let alone travel to a paint store and hunt out items to decorate. Luckily hubby took over and with some input from me he did a great job decorating the boys room. His theme was transportation with the instructions that he wasn't allowed to use anything cartoon like.
So one day when I got home from work G surprised me by decorating the nursery.  At first I was a bit shocked and even upset because I didn't even choose the paint colour (color for the Americans) but quickly it became such a big relief.  I was so touched because hubby HATES to shop and decorating isn't really his thing.  He even braved the dreaded baby store to purchase aquariums and a diaper genie.  Things that he didn't know anything about until he went alone to the baby store.  To be honest we have a very modest home with limited space. The babies nursery actually used to be our bedroom and hubby not only decorated the twins room but he also set up our new room in the basement. We decided to leave the other bedroom on our main floor for visitors and so he had to convert or basement into two separate living spaces.  For a guy with little decorating skills he did an amazing job.  I will post picture of our new room when I get a chance (G is sleeping down there now). Anyways,  these are pictures  from just two angels of the room ( I wish I had staightened things out a bit more). We took these to show our parents so don't even have the show items up (bumpers and bedding). By the way, why do people even buy bedding when we aren't allowed to use the bumpers or quilt for safety reasons. Anways, the babies are sleeping in their cribs so I can't take any pictures of the other two walls or the corner where the glider is.   One day I will post a picture of their closet and you will be shocked by how much stuff they have.  We are so lucky to have two very close friends that had baby boys 5 months ahead of us.  They have passed on everything to us and we will be forever grateful.
