Mizuno, I was told to only insert the applicator like an inch. It can cause bleeding. Also cramping could be your bowels. I wouldn't worry too much.
Flagirlie7, check the reviews on that twin bassinet. I was excited to find it but decided against it after reading that the center trends to sag. For my first set of twins I used a portable playard bassinet and then the shared a crib and then into 2 separate cribs side by side. Bad idea. They will shred diapers and share the goodies. This time space is an issue. I found that the cross at ikea are small enough to fit at the foot of my bed. I will be using that. It had adjustable hieght.
Also mizuno, I have pulling pains all the time. My guess is that your uterus is starting to stretch. It causes me medium cramping sometime constant. Ok usually constant. Then the pulling muscle feelings started lower left abdomen, then right, back to left. They've gradually worked thier way up. Now I get them every where as I'm getting big fast. Today is hurting right above my c section scar. Wondering if the scar tissue is making it more uncomfortable for me.
The pulling on both sides of your stomach is definetly your uterus. Just talked to my doctor about this! Round ligament pain, actually... She said imagine that you have never done a certain kind of exercise and then you go out and do a lot of it. You are super sore afterwards.. This is the same thing - your body has never really used those particular muscles like thine this!
I'm not telling you not to worry because that's all we do is worry.... But don't feel bad about sharing your concerns. That's what we are here for!
Now, are you calling your doctor today!!!???
Chickadeedee, no we haven't BDed since the transfer.
Anyway, I'm on bed rest and waiting to see how this plays our, but I have to say I'm not very hopeful. My BBs feel just like they do before I get my period, and the cramps, though not bad, are pretty much always there in the background, like constant pressure on my abdomen. I also have these pulley cramps on both sides of my abdomen, which I've never felt before. So sorry to be such a downer... I'll stop complaining and let you know when I have more concrete information.
All of this sounds completely normal. There's no "right" way for your BBs to feel right now, and I definitely had that pressure feeling early on (my doctor said it was the uterus stretching). I know it's hard, but try not to worry. Keep us updated, and please don't feel like you can't share your feelings or concerns here.
Welcome, Patchey! We're having a little girl, too!
I finally got my glucose results this morning. All 4 blood draws show levels that are completely normal. No GD - Phew!!
@flagirlie: don't worry! It's not so bad! You just have to prick your finger two hours after each meal! I am currently doing it as a precaution. I couldn't keep the drink down and so far only one of my values came back above limit (I had two toasts with nutella).
It happens to help a lot if you have protein with your meal. Everytime I had protein my blood sugar was just fine!
Disney, that's great that your glucose test was normal! I didn't call my do today, there is no point - she's away till Thursday, and they won't let me come in before then. They just said if it gets bad go to ER. Right now I'm still having these brown specks every once in a while when I wipe, but the cramps have gotten better.
I'm just gonna have to tough it out for a bit. The worrying is killing me and since I'm on bed rest, there is nothing to occupy myself with (I didn't realise daytime tv is such garbage - but beats working).
Flagirlie, sorry to hear that you have GD. Hopefully you don't have to make too many adjustments to your diet?
Thanks, everyone, not the greatest news. I love sugar! But hey, anything for the little ones, right? I have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day, before eating in the AM and then after each meal. I think thats by far the worst part. No simple or concentrated carbs and have to take some educational class. If the diet alone does not help, move to oral meds, and if needed even to insulin. Hope I can get through next 4 months somehow...
In addition, they moved my U/S to tomorrow, yay, and also added a doc appt (for some reason, besides talking to MFM, did not see regular doc last time at 17 wks and was not supposed to again this time, so strange), well now they wanna watch me like a hog I guess. Definitely a high risk pregnancy now!
Disney great news
Mizuno how are you feeling?
Flagirlie good luck on your u/s !
I didnt get the best news today. My baby was still to small and there was no heartbeat Dr is not optimistic and basically told me to prepare for miscarriage. Im going back on Monday and if its still wint happen by than tgey will induce it. Im absolutely heartbroken. After having 3 ectopic
pregnancies I thiught this baby is meant for us. Today I will probably be mad and keep crying but like my husbamd said tomorrow is a new day and we can still try it again later on.
