Hi Charr....I took Procardia from week 16 on due to contractions. My babies had no complications due to this medication. It is prescribed often to stop contractions. I also had no side effects from it either. Good luck.

Hi Ladies. I have 16 month old twins and expecting a singleton in Oct. I have recently gotten rid of my toyota highlander and got a Honda Odessey. I never never never wanted a mini van. I would have preferred to have a 3 row SUV, but I must say I love the van. It is absolutely perfect for moms. Hand...

Hi. Congrats on your twins. We did not co-sleep our twins. They were premature and spent time in the nicu. And the nicu no longer cosleeps twins either. One came home before the other. We tried a pack n play next to our bed and were going to use that for both of them for a while, but they were used ...

Mellie~ Congrats on the twins. I am a big fan of seeing a peri (specialist) for twins. In NC twins are considered high risk and so you are automatically set up to see one. Luckily for me they caught a short cervix and contractions at 16 weeks with my twin pregnancy. Thankfully I made it to 34 weeks....

Hi Ladies. Hope all is well with the mommies-to-be. I am good. Dr appt was fine this week. Baby is measuring 3.4 pounds....so in the 80th percentile. Sounds big, huh. Everything was measuring 2 weeks ahead which very well may be the case since I didnt have normal periods and wasnt sure of my due dat...

HI Ladies. I have been MIA lately. Staying busy with the twins. They are keeping me running. I am seeing the Peri every few weeks for a cervix check and growth check. So far so good on my cervix. Yesterday I had the growth check for the baby (still going with surprise for sex). It is already up to 2...

Hi. Sorry to hear about the drama. It totally sucks. But I can promise you that you can carry these babies to term. BUT you will have to be strict about the bedrest. I am surprised that it is modified bedrest at this point. Just think of the babies and realize that you can do this for them. I know i...

They can tell if you are having contractions by hooking you up to a machine. Not painful...kinda like a little pad that goes on your belly and measures the movement. Are you seeing a Peri? I know most have those in their offices and I would definitely ask to see if they can check you for contraction...

Hi. I had the same issue with my twins. At my 16 week appt my cervix had shortened to 2.7. I was put on modified bedrest....meaning mainly no work and taking it easy off my feet for the most part. I had it rechecked a few days later and it was still around the same, but I was having contractions (wh...

They didn't do an u/s, just hb check. But they said they wont be doing u/s since I will be seeing the peri that I will just get a...
