I survived the 3 hour test. Now I wait for the results. By the 4th blood draw, they needed to try poking me twice.

Chickadeedee - Great report back from your appointment! I think I've already gained close to 15 lbs...maybe just under. Not sure if that's too much at this point.

PostalMom - Sorry about all of the costs. I already met my $1,000 deductible this year, so coinsurance has kicked in for me. I continue to pay until I reach my out of pocket max. Look into breast pump coverage through your insurance. I learned on these boards that coverage was built into Obamacare. My insurance will cover mine at 100% if I order through one of 3 preselected vendors.

Hi ladies! So why the new thread? I just know I'm following now!!

Hope everyone's well. LO is moving nonstop. I haven't been able to sleep well at all.

I would love your opinion on something. My friends want to throw me a shower, is it bad to have a shower with a second baby? I actually never had one b/c the first time around we were moving and going through a lot then the baby came before we knew it. But still, it is the second time around, I don't need much but my friends insisted on me having one. What do y'all think?

Postal - yikes!! That's a lot of out of pocket expenses I'm going to make some burp cloths using cloth diapers. Pinterest has a LOT of DIY projects for babies!!!

Disney - did they tell you when you'd have the results??? I can't imagine sitting there for that long if I had to guess I'd say I've gained about 15lbs too. I refuse to look at the scale when they weigh me and I don't want to know the actual number, but I did want to have the weight "conversation" with the doctor.

Sunshine I think feeling the LO move is the BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!! Is that why you're not sleeping?? Or is it just because you're uncomfortable? The mods shut the other thread down because they felt things got out of hand... But we're here now!!!
I personally think a small shower is totally acceptable!! It's more for the baby anyway!!! Every baby deserves something special IMO

Sunshine, I think a baby shower is fine. Let them celebrate you and your new bundle. That's really what it's about. The gifts are just bonuses.

Disney, my Dr gave me a paper telling me about the free breast pumps. It's free but they have heard that they aren't always good quality. But it's still free. When I call my insurance to ask about one in also going to ask about if we have a max out of pocket. My husband's Co worker thinks it may be 5-6000. Which is way better than 20%. When I had my first twins I was poor and on medicaid. I accidentally got a bill from the hospital for over $90,000. My twins stayed for 12 days in nicu. So 20% of that would kill us. That was only 1 bill.
Off the subject. . Is/has any one found they ate less in the first tri? I am eating frequently, but like today I had a banana for breakfast burger king for an early lunch, small plate of mac and cheese 4 hours later, and now I'm waiting on a panini my DH is making. It doesn't seem like that would be enough calories for a twin pregnancy does it? My original wieght was 137 I weighed in at 140 today. So at least I have gained 3 pounds.

Oh sunshine, I don't think we are allowed to discuss why we had to make a new thread. But I will tell you our megan has left the site for good.
Megan if your stalking, we love and miss you.

I feeling LO move. I hope you get some more sleep soon.

I think a small shower with your friends is fine if they are insisting on it. Your LO is a little miracle that deserves to be celebrated!

Pinterest keeps me so occupied. I've already made a couple of things based on projects I've found on Pinterest (adjustable crib skirt, baby clothes hanger organizers, etc...).

The results will probably be ready tomorrow, but it's up to my doctor to log in, read them, and release them to the website. She said she'll release my results as soon as she sees them. I hope I will know sooner than later.

All 3 of the companies that my insurance deals with offers the same Medela pump (amongst 2 other brands). That's the one I'm requesting. I've read that it's the same as this one without the extra carry bag and other misc. accessories, though it includes all vital parts.

Ouch! $90k. I hope you get good news when you talk to your insurance.

Hey, ladies, made it! I need to wait for my 3-hour test until sometimes mid next week. Hope I pass this one! So far the only test I passed was pregnancy lol. Failed anemia twice, one hour glucose too.

I gained so far about 18-19 lbs which is pretty good considering twin mommas should gain 24 lbs by 24 weeks. To prevent preterm labor. So hopefully I'm on track, though some weeks are more stressful than others so gain not much if any. Then I catch up next week. I know I put on like 10-11 inches around my waist.

Sorry Megan isn't joining us. I sent her a PM yesterday but no response. Glad all y'all could join!

I failed the anemia one, too. I'm waiting on the results from the 3-hour test now. Remember to bring something to keep yourself occupied. It won't be too bad.

It sounds like your weight gain is likely on track. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the replies regarding the progesterone. I called and asked, and they said my levels were well over 100 and only need to be greater than 20, so didn't recommend I stay on it because my body is demonstrating that it has kicked in its own supply.
