    hi

    im home
    had swabs done for infedction as well as the one that predicts if labor will start this week which was thankfully negative

    ive been given paracetamol and codine tablets, have to take 2 of each every 4 to 6 hours

    they think the weight of the girls is tearing my lower abdominal muscles and that why im in so much pain

    if one more person tell me theyre "big" or a "good size" ill scream!! i can feel theyre big
    twin 2 is also still transverse and twin 1 bottom down breech (breech)

    my spd has stepped up about ten levals and i cant lift a shopping bag

    but im home and still have the twins inside so thats good
    thanks for all the wishes ladies

    That's a relief ;) Try the mothercare bump belt - it's the only thing that helped me manage moving with big twins on board. The real baby weight is yet to go on, and there's still a fair way to go weight wise, so I highly recommend x

    Ohhh Anna, I am so happy to hear that your girls are still cooking inside you!

    I understand how you feel - carrying twins is really hard on the body. You probably already know that you need to drink plenty of water, but staying really hydrated did help to reduce the number of painful tightenings for me... it is tempting to restrict water so you don't have to go to the loo quite so often, but water is your friend :)

    All the best to you. xoxox

    Sorry your in so much pain but think it is wonderful the girls are still inside and cooking.
    I suggest getting the belt lizzie recommended.
