Congrats Trixie!!! So happy for you, and so sorry you had to have a c-section. Wishing you a very speedy recovery! Can't wait to see pictures!!

Hope your little one decides to stay in a little longer lilrojo. My friend had the same with her second pregnancy and they thought the baby was coming right away, and she ended up going another 3-4 weeks. Hang in there.

Hope everyone else is well and getting excited! I am still tired lol! I have for now cut out trying to feed at the breast, and just pumping as much as I can. She's getting some breast milk at least, and I hope my supply increases so I can cut down on formula. No one told me how expensive formula is!!!

Take care everyone! Thinking of all of you and thanks for all the support and kind words!

congratulations trixie! sorry to hear you had a rough time, but hopefully you'll recover from the c-section quickly.

sorry to hear about your struggles Stranje - my mom wasn't able to breast feed us because she didn't make enough milk and my sister also only was able to for a week or so. just don't take it out on yourself, I know my sister had a tough time emotionally when she had to give up and go formula. We've started to buy a little formula but yeah it's definitely not cheap!

The girls still aren't home yet, they turned 4 weeks old on Tuesday (would have been 36 wks). They are doing well though, Cassandra is 4lbs 10oz and Heather is 4lbs 7oz so they are getting big. Just haven't mastered the bottle thing yet, although Cassandra is really close. I'm guessing she may come home a few days before Heather but we may be surprised.

Just now starting to see stuff come in from my hospital stay.. egads.. good thing I have insurance. So far $35k has hit - and that's just my stuff, I may pass out when I see the cost of 4+ weeks in the NICU for two babies! Yay for out of pocket maximums!

Hi Ladies, glad to hear things are going well Tobaira. Your little girls will be home in no time. Thank goodness we have the NHS here, medical bills are massive!
Hang in there lilrojo, hope things dont progress too quickly for you.
As for me, I had a midwife app today. Baby moved from back to back to normal position whilst she was checking the heart beat, little monkey. Also was engaged abit then came back out, dont have a clue what the little one is doing in there??
Good news your was slightly engaged dreamer.

Well apparently the food fairy has arrived and little Cassandra will probably be home tomorrow, and Heather should be following her either Sunday or Monday. I am sooo excited and completely terrified at the same time!!! All the tubes have been removed except for the oxygen which they will be coming home on (and probably be on for several months - Colorado Springs is at a high altitude so sometimes even full term babies get sent home on oxygen). yikes.. running around today trying to make sure everything is done.. I think it is but now I have to double and triple check lol!

Congratulations Trixie!! Hope you and Connor are doing well and I can't wait to see pics...

Good to hear you and Giada are doing well Stranje. I hope the feeding gets better for you and her. Sounds like you're starting to get a routine down though.

Tobaira, sorry to hear your girls aren't home yet. Hopefully, it won't be much longer. My friend who had twin girls back in Sept, had them at nearly 36 weeks and they were in the NICU til they were 2 wks old (so they would have been 38 weeks), and it was also for feeding issues. So it seems maybe that is pretty common with preemies. Hopefully they will be home in your arms in no time!!

Lilrojo, hopefully your little one will decide to stay put for a bit longer.

Claire, I hope you are doing well....not much longer for you!! Then it's Dreamer's turn!!....then....ME! Yipes!

I don't think my little one is gonna decide to come any time soon. I still can feel him all up in my ribs, so I don't think he's dropped yet. I'll probably end up getting induced. Which is fine with me (I actually would prefer it... I am a bit of planner and like to know things ahead of time.) Also, I live an hour and a half away from my hospital which makes me nervous. Unless I go into labor at work, then I'm already there!! Haha! But I really don't want that to happen either!! So I really wouldn't mind getting induced, I just want to be sure the baby is ready to come, because I really don't want to have to get a c section just because baby isn't ready yet. Which seems to happen a lot with scheduled inductions.

Hope you all are well and have a great weekend. I have a super busy weekend, but Sunday, I'll get to go see my brother. I hope he's doing well, I haven't been able to talk to him in 2 weeks. But my parents have, and they say he really wants to talk to me. He only gets phone privileges on tues, thurs, and sat for like 10 minutes, so he always calls my parents. But, I'm glad I'll be able to visit with him on Sunday!!


ETA: Just saw your post above me Tobaira....So happy your girls will be home with you in the next few days!! Get a good night's sleep tonight!!
