I had to drag myself into work today. I originally took today off because we were driving to Atlanta. Since that trip was cancelled no point in wasting a day. We don’t get maternity leave so I need all the days I can get.
—STOP self diagnosing yourself. Stay away from google. Noggin is fine and will continue to be fine. I’m sure you are just experiencing the normal aches and pains of pregnancy. HA…I got a lot of nerve. hehehehe….Ok, I’ll stop with the self-righteous crappy lecture. I would have done the same thing. You are my hypochondriac hero! I never thought to google my symptoms. Thanks for the idea. Glad to hear Noggin was so active this time around. Did you eat anything sweet before you went in? I heard that’s supposed to help make them more active.
—It’s funny that you are in West Palm Beach. I was just doing a search for a vacation down there for this upcoming weekend. After my drive to Atlanta was cancelled I was on a mission to find another trip. There were a couple of specials to West Palm Beach but we would have to come back on Tuesday and DH can’t do that. So now I’ll be home probably hanging out by the pool and painting my kitchen this weekend. Have fun in FL me. I can’t wait to see pictures of your nieces. I have a 10 month old niece and I just love her to pieces. She’s so cute. I want her to stay that size. LOL
—I was looking thru a baby magazine the other day and there was this cute chair for babies. It was made by Sassy. It made me think of you. The chair was unique and very stylish. Something I could see you creating. Happy to hear that hubby got two thumbs up…wait, then again no I’m not. Not sure how to feel. Happy everything is okay. But then part of me thinks that if something wasn’t okay then at least we would know what is causing the issues and then fix it. Does that make sense? Well whatever is the case, I want whatever you want.
Sometimes I think a counselor is better than talking to a friend. You are getting everything off your chest without everyone being in your business and without judgmental opinions you sometimes get from friends.
—Keep that positive attitude. It’s too early to be self diagnosing yourself. Those aches you are feeling are just your little ones settling in. Don’t stress and stay positive. Are you still relaxing? Stay away from the evil HPT. Yup, I had 24hour bed rest. Which technically is over the next day the same hour you had ET. But I stayed in bed, the entire day after ET then the next day until the time of ET (which was around noon). After that I was still home but I did a little more. But I took it easy and did get in and out of the bed. LOL I guess it all comes down to what’s best for you. What makes you feel more at ease. I’m not sure if we’ll ever know if bed rest is a do or don’t. But like someone else said, can it hurt? Let us know about the blood work and if the others made it to freezing.
—I’m so jealous. Only one day left of work. I would love that. I would love summers off. Hmmm, maybe I should look into teaching. I get tired of staring at the computer all day. And having summers off with the twins would be great. I think a career change might be in the future. OH HELL NO!!!! Robbo, she can’t tell you or ask you what to buy her for the shower? I hope you’re not talking about the gift? If so, then absolutely not. Actually you are not expected to give a huge gift since you are paying for the shower. She gets whatever you give her. Now if you are talking about decorations and supplies for the shower, that’s another thing. Personally I don’t think she should be telling you what to purchase but I guess she may want certain things for her shower. I don’t like her and don’t think she should be asking for any darn thing. She’s already asking enough. I think nutritional cake without icing (and use all low fat ingredient) would be perfect. Instead of water and food coloring; what about putting a picture of tap water on everyone’s table with some lemons and sugar and they can make their own lemonade. LOL BTW..did I mention that I don’t like your OUT laws either. I think you should get a dog and train it to bite them. I bet they wont come and stay for two weeks anymore. LOL
—You’d be surprised how many people are going thru IF. I found about so many more people when I started talking about my issues. I think more people are talking about it now, due to society being more acceptable and because of technology. My cousin’s wife and my best friend are both going thru it right now. I hear stories from my SIL and friends about how many people they know who are dealing with it. I definitely think it’s also environmental. My best friend made a joke the other day about the nasty water we grew up drinking and that’s why we are having these issues now. LOL Also, more people are waiting longer to have kids. I bet if I was a little fast girl and got pregnant in my teens, I wouldn’t have had these issues. But I might have had others such as being a teen mom, possibly missing prom, not graduating, no college. It’s always something. Issues early or issues later. LOL
—You are not a failure! No sista is. We just have complex bodies that are not easy to figure out and they also have minds of their own.
Hope AF shows up soon so we can get this show on the road. How many totsicles do you have waiting to be home with their mommy? Don’t feel bad. I wont be going anywhere either. Looks like a trip to home depot to pick out paint will be the highlight of my weekend. Tiles sound so much more fun.
Well yesterday we had out 16 week scan and we found out we are having a boy and a girl!! I’m so excited yet don’t want to get too excited yet. The u/s technician first told us that it might be too early to tell before she started scanning and said we would know for sure at the 20 week scan. But then during the scan she told us. Baby A is a girl and baby B is a boy. DH and I are so happy and excited. I just hope we get the same results at the 20 week scan. But if not, we’ll just tell everyone…opps, they were wrong. No biggie. I just know not to run out and purchase anything yet. LOL But everything looks great with the twins. They are both measuring exactly we’re they are suppose to. The boy is measuring a little bigger than the girl but not much. They are both around 5 ounces. The girl is a little more laid back. She moved for us during the u/s. But the boy was all over the place. He would not sit still. It took the technician a while to get all his measurements. She needed to measure his arm and couldn’t because he would not sit still. He was flipping all over the place. I think she was getting frustrated. LOL She said a 16 week u/s usually doesn’t take this long. LOL DH and I found it very funny and entertaining that he was all over the place. The technician did not. Finally she got the last measurement which was his arm. Everything measured just right for both of them. The only bad thing is that I have 3 fibroids. One is pretty big and right over the little girl. The doctor told me it was nothing to worry about and that they would stop growing in a few weeks. But I have been feeling a slight pain where the large fibroid is. SO the doctor says since the little girl is right underneath it she’s probably kicking it and that’s the pain I feel. I just that these fibroids don’t cause any harm to my babies.
After finding out the great news about our boy and a girl, I can deal with not going on a vacation right now. Maybe I’ll just put on my bathing suit (once I get one that fits) and run thru the sprinklers. Maybe fix me a virgin drink and lay out in the backyard. I’ll have my own vacation at home.
Have a lovely weekend ladies!
