Wish you are doing so amazing, so what’s best for you and your babies and you will be all good, honestly you are doing all you can and it definitely isn’t easy!

Juliet, glad the twins had a great day, you must have been so Tired! You’re so nearly there now and I’m so excited for you!

The 7hr stretches have gone back to 4-5, actually even less now as he’s only gained 1oz in a week I have to wake him 3hrly at the moment to make sure he gets the milk higher in calories at night, it’s seems so wrong to wake him when he’s so peaceful! Going back in 2 weeks and hoping for a 6oz gain
Apart from that we’re all good still, hope all the mummie and Bavaria EE well!

ugh, yes, the crazy changing sleep cycles! I was a zombie at work yesterday b/c the boys had 3 hr ones the night before. But last night, T slept from 7:30-2:15! They then stirred at 4:15 and he drank an ounce and then woke up screaming (like a nightmare or something) a little after that but went right back down. And then my alarm went off at 5:30. But no one woke then except me so I got my pumping done, stuff ready for my day, stuff ready for DH's day and hopped in the shower. No one got up until I was out of the shower and T even stayed in his crib until I was dressed and ready to bring him down, while DH and M ate downstairs! Hallelujah!!

Wish I love it when you have time to yourself to get stuff done, especially a shower!

You can see my last post was during a night time feed looking at the text at the end haha

wahhhhhhh i hate it when i write a detailed post and then there's some glitch at it disappears!!!!

Wish sorry the 7 hours stretches are not happening right now, but good to get him up for feedings. hope he gains those ounces for his next check-up!! you are doing great!

wish, you are doing amazing! trying to keep up the pumping and everything whilst having work to deal with!! but what a great morning you got with showering and getting yours and hubbys day all organized before they woke up! that is happy!

how is everyone else doing??? anyone vacation yet with baby??
my husband is optimistic that we will do "staycation" days while he is on paternity leave... going to the zoo, aquarium, etc. After of course i heal from the c-section!!!!
starting to have some anxiety about monday! i feel like we are done getting ready, other than car seat and baby cribs/bassinet/co-sleeper setups... and then other times i am like, no wait we have TONS TO DO AND WHY ARENT WE DOING IT?????? and then i can list a bunch of small things that we haven't done...
with the kids birthday party, it did set me back a few days on baby prep, but worth it to make the twins have a fun, special day. and now i am just exhausted from being almost 39 weeks along...it will all come together though just fine. i think the anxiety is more having the procedure and hoping it all goes smoothly...

juliet - so much to worry about at the end - I think it's cute how you've had 3 already and you're still worried! You're a pro, don't worry about it! flex those mom muscles and carry on! YOU GOT THIS!!

star - you're doing an awesome job too! I'm so happy for you that your diabetes is GONZO! one less thing to worry about!

no vacations or even notion of one until the summer. We just booked a weekend at a friend's parents' campground they own up in the mountains in July. I cannot wait! The boys will be over 6 mos old by then. I want to make something like that a tradition and it'll be easy knowing the owners (they are like family to us too). We also have another weekend booked at the beach in Maine at the end of August. It's sort of a family reunion on DH's side - all of the aunts, uncles and cousins used to go to the same motel every year for holiday. Now those cousins are doing it, still with some aunts and uncles, and now all of the new kids! I'd love for this to become tradition too!

wish thanks for the confidence boost!!!! funny how i still get nervous... about everything haha.

i had mucousy discharge today which isn't rare for me but there were brown streaks! i got all excited thinking maybe it was some plug! that would be crazy if this party started earlier than planned!

wish your summer vaca plans sound totally ideal!!! very fun and family friendly. i want to do camping this summer, but we always cihcken out since we have had kids for some reason. DS had night terrors almost nightly for many many months, so that was always hard for us. but he outgrew those thankfully. and now the question is what would baby sleep in? like a pack n play with warm layers and jammies ? or maybe the rock n play! those fold easily and could be transported and would keep baby away from cold ground.

hope everyone is having a good week! two more days and DH will be off of work for paternity leave!!!

yeah, I'd say either of those are great options for baby to sleep in. And just a warm swaddle of some kind. Go for it! Camping as a kid are some of my MOST favorite memories!!! The place we are going has cabins and yurts to rent so we're getting a cabin. So it's not FULLY camping Glamping, maybe! HAHA!
