Whisper - yay so happy to hear Rose is making so much progress!! Hopefully she will be home in no time
Happy - love the bump pic!!
Michelle - read in the other thread that you're feeling better You are so active it's inspiring!! I know I'll be so lazy because I'm already feeling that way
Want - how exciting!! Only a few more days and Nicholas will be in your arms
AFM - had my first OB appt yesterday. Everything looks great with my little girl she's measuring right on target and her heart rate was 161 . I'm seeing a high risk OB due to my blood clotting disorder and she kind of freaked me out because she gave me all of the worst case scenarios that can happen. My next appt isn't for 4 weeks. No idea how I'll manage to wait that long. I got so spoiled having an ultrasound every week for the last 3 weeks!!
Happy - adorable bump. That top looks so cute on you. Those are some good size twins you have in there! That is fabulous they have stayed put to grow as much as possible.
Michelle - Hope you are making it through all of stuff you have to do and still maintaining sanity!
Want - WOW! Sunday! That would be wonderful! Just a few more days till you meet baby!
Em - YAY for another good scan. That is incredibly exciting. I'm assuming you will get to do scans more often than a standard pregnancy since you are high risk? I did because of twins and it was wonderful. Sorry the doc freaked you out. I hope you will be able to keep focusing on the good news and not get distracted by all of the possible scary stuff.
AFM - Rose came home today! We are on . It is so great to have her here and as an extra bonus, we don't have to go up to the hospital constantly anymore to see her. But let me just say....having twins home is going to be a huge challenge. It's 5 am here and neither DH nor I got more than about 3 hours of sleep last night. Lily did a pretty good job of sleeping, but Rose is waking up every hour wanting to eat! FX she will adjust to being at home quickly and we will be able to get the twins on some kind of similar schedule.
want - YAY!! Nicholas will be here soon And sounds like maybe Monday; that is my DS's bday
Whisper - WOOT WOOT; so happy Rose is home now And from another thread I am on where there are a lot of twins, sleep unfortunately seems to be a hard thing to come by. I am sure you will adjust and with the help from DH, hopefully you both can work out a routine so you both manage to get some rest
Em - YAY for a great appt! Don't let them freak you out about the clotting disorder; I have it and never had an issue because of it
I have to say I am feeling better, but man, I am TIRED today! Got home after working all day yesterday, ran to two stores, then got home at 7:45 and cleaned until 9:20 when I finally went to bed. And we still have SO much to get done between now and Saturday for the party I also think even after Saturday, there is still more to come; getting the LO's clothes washed, put away and moving Tyler's clothes from the LO's room to his new room. But at least after this weekend I don't have to feel so stressed about getting it done.
Thx ladies. If he comes on Monday then him and my neice who was born Monday will be exactly 1wk apart. Can't wait to hold him in my arms. Been waiting for almost 9yrs. Hoping these last couple days go by fast!
Whisper - yay for Rose coming home and hope you can get them both on the same schedule.
Happy - how did your appointment go?
Michelle - Glad you're feeling better. Get organized because you're not to far behind me.
Wanna - have you and Elijah in my prayers. Hope he improves soon Hun.
@Whisper, Congratulations on being able to take both of your girls home!! That is such awesome news and I am so happy for you!!
@Want, Good luck for Sunday night!! I hope your L&D is quick and easy and that your baby is born happy and healthy!!
@Happy, beautiful bump pic!! You look great and I can tell your twins will be arriving any day!!
@Michelle, I am glad to hear that you are feeling better!!
@Em, that is great that your appointment went so well! I am sorry that your DR scared you, I think that she wanted to prepare you in case there are any problems, but I am sure that everything will be just fine. It is good that you know about the medical challenges that you are facing so you are prepared and they will be monitored just in case. Big hugs to you!!
AFM, Elijah has improved a great deal today and I did a detailed update in my journal so be sure to check it out!! DH & I are feeling very happy today because he is fighting off the infection and he is improving. Thanks so much for all of the thoughts and prayers girls!! I really appreciate it!!
Whisper I'm so glad Rose is home! I'm sure you and DH are on !
EM I'm glad your appt went well. You can get so spoil every time you get an u/s maybe with the specialist you will get more u/s.
Michelle I'm glad you are feeling better. You have so much energy!
Want I hope these days go by fast!!
Wanna I'm so happy Elijah is doing better. They are both still in my prayers.
Well today for a moment I thought my twins were coming! The dr said my BP was high and their was protein in my urine. So he sent me to the hospital to get blood work done. He was afraid I was getting pre-eclampsia. All the results were fine but now I have to check my BP twice a day. I'm doing a 24 hr urine test. I was excited but at the same time I was nervous. Now I better make sure I have everything ready just in case. We are all so close at holding our babies.
Michelle - FX your stress level winds down after this weekend. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. GL with the batman party. I want to come!
Want - Are you for sure getting induced on Sunday? Only like two days to go!
Wanna - So very glad Elijah is doing better. Poor little guy has had a tough go of it so far. He must have a strong little spirit. Still praying for all of you.
Happy - Oh boy! Any time now. I'm glad your doc is monitoring you for preeclampsia...that's why I had to deliver early. Luckily you are far enough that even if you got diagnosed with preeclampsia you are probably fine to deliver any time now. How exciting! Did you get that hospital bag packed?
Em - how are you feeling? What pregnancy symptoms are you having?
AFM - DH and I took Rose to her first pediatrician appointment yesterday and the doctor said she is looking great. We will take her back in a week for a weight check. I also asked the doctor some questions about the girls' immune functioning as I have been told that their immune systems are compromised due to being premature. The doctor's recommendation is that we not take the girls to any public places with lots of people for a while i.e. church. She also said we should have everyone who touches the babies wash or sanitize their hands first. So we started spreading the word to our families yesterday that we will be asking everyone to sanitize. When I told my mom, I think I detected a bit of a "harrumph" in her tone. It could be that I am just super sensitive due to extreme sleep deprivation, but now I am worried that my family will be offended if we ask them to sanitize. Would you guys feel offended if someone asked you to sanitize before touching their baby?
Whisper - Glad the appt went well with Rose. If your family or anyone gets offended because you ask them to sanatize to make sure your babies are OK, then that is their problem! Honestly I think there is nothing wrong with asking that. You have to do what is in the best interest of your girls
Happy - Glad everything came back OK with your tests; but it won't be long now hang in there!!
wanna - So glad Elijah is doing better!!! You surely have a little champ/fighter on your hands And so happy that Lyric is getting stronger everyday!
Oh I just want to fast foward to Sunday right now! DH and I worked until about 10pm last night with my BIL and SIL and still, SOOOOO much to get done! I spent about 30 minutes pulling weeds and wanted to pass out; it was 92 and 100% humidity yesterday! DH and BIL worked in the yard most of the night, mulch is being delivered today and driveway being seal coated. Myself and SIL worked on DS's batman room, putting up the decals and I removed the stickers from his lightning mcqueen bed so DH can spray paint it black tonight and we can put batman decals on it Just lots to do for tomorrow! I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them!!! I am excited for DS to have a nice party tomorrow; his last one as an only child
Whisper I don't think it's wrong to ask people to wash and sanitize their hands before touching the girls. And if they have a problem then that's on them. They need to put themselves in your shoes. DH and I are going to ask our family for the same thing. In fact we have been making comments to prepare them. No bag yet. I'm doing it tonight.
Michelle you are the energizer bunny! You keep going and going! I'm sure the party will be a success. I can't wait to see the pics.
Want you are so close now. I can't wait to hear your update.
It's getting harder to sleep at night. I wake up around 1 am and stay up for about 2 hours. I drink milk the twins seem to like that. Today I noticed I'm starting to loose my plug. DH talks to the twins everyday tells them to rip my water and come out! At this point I am so ready to have these babies.
