WOW, big baby!! I'd almost want to ask for 38 weeks instead of 39, but that is ONLY b/c I just delivered 2 healthy babies at 38 weeks so I know there's a great chance for little to no NICU time. And with yours already being so big, why not?
How far away is your house from the hospital? We thought we'd have DH run home for stuff too but he didn't end up having to. They really had everything - a pantry with food, room service (for me only), Dunkins right in the hospital, my clothing, etc. They even had a water bottle for me! I needed that so badly b/c the air in the hospital did a number on me - I had clots in my nose and everything. I had had to have oxygen after my c-section and blood transfusion and that killed the uvula (whatever the punching bag thingie is at the back of your throat) - it swelled it and I had a hard time talking or swallowing! ah memories...I need to write these down somewhere!

wish you definitely need to write it down!! wow how scary post c-sec for you!!! brave momma!

and your comments reminded me that hospital air i think makes me extra dry, like dry lips, throat, skin etc.
i wish she would let me take him out at 38!! but last few times it came up, there would have to a medically necessary reason and i guess there isn't (since the hemotoma is basically non-existing)... wahhhhh!!! but i did email today to see if we could get the csec at 39 on the books! make it official! haven't heard back yet.
my twins were healthy, no nicu at 35.5, so i do feel confident that this little guy would also thrive outside earlier than the "normal"... but alas, i will try and be patient. hospital is only 15 minutes when it isn't like traffic hour.

hope everyone is off to a good start this week!

Star i feel you! My boobs are ALWAYS out. We just keep the shades closed day and night bc Quinn just wants to feed or comfort nurse all day. Im trying to enjoy it bc i know this time with her wont last but i am sore! Your pics are adorable. They look so much alike!

Scooby labor is no joke! Sorry to hear Finn is having some problems. I live for those baby smiles. Ive heard good things about those bottles hopefully does the trick.

Wish boo you are back to work! I hope you found a schedule thats working. Arent rock and plays amazing inventions?! Quinn would only sleep 20 mins in a bassinet up to 4 hours in her rock and play. I love it. I had such a hard time picking middle name bc of that problem! Everything sounded like queen lol

Juliet its going by so fast! I had a couple outfits but the hospital really supplied everything i needed. Don't overpack i asked for extra supplies and they were more than helpful. It was so nice bc when i came home i didnt have to unpack my life once i got home. Dont take too much stock in the ultrasound sizes. Quinn always measured big but came out average.

3c sounds like great weight gain! Hows her sleeping?

Does anyone elses baby love to pee and poop once you start changing the diaper? Ive been peed and pooped on soooooo many times. I swear shes a little jokster already! Her hair is coming in strawberry blonde so glad we gave her an Irish name.

Hi dogmommy, glad you’re well!
Caleb is a little red head at the moment, not sure if it will stay, Madeleine is totally blonde so we’ll see if he goes the same or stays auburny like me

Had him weighed today and he’s 9lb 10oz and on the 25th percentileput on 8oz in 2 weeks, he has a slight tongue tie but nothing gat should affect feeding and doesn’t seem to the way he goes!

He normally sleeps about 8-8:30 then wakes up between 12-2am for an hr or so hen does about another 3hrs so not so bad as he’s only 5 weeks today

Madeleine has just fallen asleep at 5:15 though so not looking forward to tomorrow’s wake up time!

omg my boobs are always out too! and way too many people in my life have seen them! HA!
And YES - I've been peed on a thousand times already! DH has been pooped on and we had an active sewage looking poop happen yesterday! These boys are fountains as soon as the diaper comes off, I have to make sure I cover with a paper towel or something else that's close.

The RnP is amazing!!

we have our 2 month appt tomorrow, I can't wait to see how much they weigh. They are getting their first shots, though!

Typing on phone so will read and write more later...
But having so many discomforts today! Like my Braxton Hicks which shouldn’t like hurt are being super uncomfortable.... i think I’m also having some other issue going on but i feel like full and bloated all day today. I have eaten less than normal. And laid down a ton and sipping water. I have bad gas, so maybe that’s not helping. But why would the Braxton Hicks hurt ??? I mean like not painful painful but hurts for a few seconds. Anyway just needed to vent about the discomforts a bit.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I’ll write more later when on laptop!

wish, how was the appt? what were their stats? can't believe it has been 2 months!

star how is your cute guy?

how is everyone else doing??

i was so sick friday and satruday. my BH were out of control with a stomachache and constipated... it was so uncomfortable and i was in bed as much as possible. thankfully DH was home on weekend. Sunday I improved, had 2 BMs, so back to normal on THAT haha.
And good news! C-sec officially scheduled for april 16! i feel less anxiety now that it is at least in the books. If he tries to come early I would be okay with that and possibly try another VBAC, but we will see! 27 days!

27 days!!! AHHHH!! or 26 now since you posted that yesterday!

Our appt went great, given there were shots involved. Timothy is weighing in at 12.07lbs and Malcolm is just under 10. T has some torticollis that we have to go to PT for now, he's getting a flat spot on his right side Other than that - Timothy took his shots like a champ, only cried a little. He has more chunk on his thighs, though. But Malcolm broke both of our hearts when he got his shots - it was awful and he was hard to console. But he was sleeping in his car seat by the time we left.

This week has been challenging - both boys aren't sleeping well during the day and sometimes also the night. They cat nap all day and then are SO overtired at night, it's hard to keep them down. And M is screaming bloody murder anytime his diaper is changed, I have no idea why. He's completely fine once the last button is done up, though - he just must be uber-sensitive to being cold. He might be getting a witching hour now, though. I think T's witching hour stage is pretty much done. He still fusses a bit before bedtime but I'm assuming that's normal for most babies?
Anyway, so even though my folks have been here taking care of daycare, when the boys get too wound up, we have to jump in and soothe them.

I'm also thinking of stopping breastfeeding soon, at the 3 month mark. I figure that's a lot longer than I thought I would make it, first of all. And I have to come back into the office fulltime until approved for a new WFH schedule my boss offered to me. But even then, I feel like keeping up with pumping doesn't work for both kids and I can't breastfeed all day/every day. T's appetite is growing and I can't support both. As it is, if he eats longer on me throughout the day, that's less I'm storing up to pump for M for the next day. I could do the mother's tea and all that but I'm really not looking to complicate my life even more. I think it's time. Makes me a little sad, though, when I look down at my sleeping cherub suckling away.

wish, Glad the appts went well !!! sorry things have been challenging... have they improved?
nice you have had your folks around to help. have things gotten better?
have you figured out your plan with pumping/feeding? wind it down? definitely hard on the emotions but got to do what makes sense for you! working momma and everything!

how is everyone else doing? all you busy mommas!!!!
we are expecting 70s here this week so finally some lovely days to play in the backyard... last couple weeks was off and on rain. so all their toys are wet i didn't get to putting away, but at least it won't be rainy and cold.

tomorrow i go in for 36 week appt. not sure what they do other then pee test for protein, check my BP/weight, measure bump, baby heartbeat with doppler. nothing too exciting :/ but 3 weeks till c-sec so that is good!!!
