Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Jenice - I am sorry your parents haven't been well, what a stressful pregnancy you have had. I hope that when you finally hold your little guy it is so much sweeter! I hope that Christmas can be fun and relaxing with time with your husband and daughter. Hopefully she will give you guys some much nee...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

I just had an ultrasound today! Baby girl is 4lbs 1 oz and Baby boy is 4lbs 8oz. I couldn't be happier! Great weights for both of them and at this point they gain 1/2lb a week so they have the potential to both be over 7lbs if I go full term. The real surprise is that they are both head-down! My doc...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Julia - it sounds like you had a a great trip! I forget which week they say that the babies can hear outside noises maybe your little ones were rocking out =) I am sorry to hear about your bra issues, no fun! I switched to a bra with no underwire, so that when my belly rubs up against it, it doesn't...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

julia - this was the first ultrasound we have had since the anatomy scan at 18months. My OB doesn't really do a scan at the office unless they see a problem. I will have another scan in about a month. Don't stress about your weight, at my last weigh-in 28 weeks I had gained 41lbs. With the first set...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

lisadcb - you are an amazing woman! I am sorry that this pregnancy is even worse than the first. What you are doing for your family and for your son is really something you should be proud of. At 24 weeks you are more than 1/2way there, most twins are delivered between 36-38 weeks. You can make it, ...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Jenice - you can still have a baby shower even if it isn't your first child. This set of twins will be my 3rd & 4th kids and I have two small baby showers that have been planned by my friends. I told everyone that they didn't need to get gifts, but if they wanted to, I could use girl clothes (I gave...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

mev - I know swelling cab be rough! One other tip is to drink plenty of water (I know annoying because you have to pee all the time), but it helps! Sleeping is getting rough for me too. A warm bath or shower before bed seems to help me get to sleep, but I wake up to go to the bathroom and then I hav...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Just a quick update and I will do personals later! I had an ultrasound today and it was so great to see the babies again. Baby A (girl) is 2lbs 9oz and Baby B (boy) is 2lbs 14oz! Right now they are both breech, which is not great, but she got some adorable shots of their heads snuggling together. I ...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Kitty - sorry to hear about your rough day! It is not your fault that you have gestational diabetes or are anemic. There is nothing you could have done to prevent it, so don't beat yourself up over it. Being anemic is pretty common, I wouldn't stress about that. The sheet the doctor gave me said 80%...

On a side note, I am freaking out just a little. If I go to 36 weeks again... it is only 9 weeks to go... wow!

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Getting them on the same eating schedule is a very good sanity saver especially if you plan to nurse. Otherwise you might feed baby A, go to sleep for an hour and then Baby B might need to eat so you are back up in an hour, where if you had fed them both at the same time you might have been able to ...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Kitty - I am sure it is not what you expected having to leave work so soon, but it is much better to be safe and over-cautious. I was able to work until whenever, but I also had a job where I sat all day. I ended up quitting about 25 weeks, because we ended up moving across the country for my husban...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

jenice - a boy! How exciting. I too had to make the decision about tying my tubes. I am really pretty certain I am done having kids, but I keep saying what if, so I decided not to do it. julia - I love ultrasound scans, it is just so amazing. I am glad you got to see everyone and they are doing well...
