Kildean, so sorry you had to get the cerclage and are now on bedrest. It stinks, but just remember it's for a great cause.
Sug - if I were you I would call the on-call doc to check. I used to feel bad about calling on weekends or after hours, but the fact of the matter is they work for you, and you can never be too sure. And honestly when I do have to call, they never seem to mind. Better to be safe than sorry. By the way...how the heck did you know that you were having contractions? I am so scared that I won't recognize them because every little twinge I have I blame on gas.
Rio - sorry about your dog. We've seen many come and sadly go over the years. I know how hard it is when they get sick because they truely are one of the family. What kind of puppy did you get?
Loopie - I admire you for wanting to do the cloth diapers. I just don't have it in me. My BFF has only used cloth for both her kids. I know she gets them from some website and loves them. I'll have to find out what she uses and I'll let you know. And yes, our surgery was filmed. Apparently it's a documentary they've been working on for 6 months or so. I don't know if our footage will make it in or not, but it was actually Lionsgate films that did the taping, for both Discovery and a possible movie. We will see. They are supposed to send me a copy of the footage. I can't wait to see it!
Gecko - is DH on the front lines up there with the fires? It's been super hot down here. Even here at the beach it's in the high 80s, and we don't have AC. It's tough staying cool, but we've got fans going everywhere.
I'm jealous of all of you who are going out to register. I never made it to B-R-Us before the bedrest, so I will have to do everything online. I may pick out a few things and have DH go check them out for quality and stuff. I like to see and touch before I buy, which clearly isn't going to happen now. As for the nursery, we probably won't set up the cribs until the end of summer. We have to give up the guest room for the babies and in the summer we usually have a lot of guests (or should I say drunk party people looking for a place to crash after playing at the beach all day). As a gift to the babies, my Dad graciously offered to buy our nursery furniture for us, so we already purchased 2 cribs, 2 mattresses and a changing table. They are all in the garage just waiting to be set up. Here's the ones we got...
We didn't get a dresser or anything because the room is small and there is already a dresser in the closet.
As for the babies, at last check they were doing AWESOME. The surgeon called and had talked to the peri and said the results so far are way above his expectations. Yay! I did have to make another trip to the ER last night. I had a couple of episodes of not being able to breathe. It was probably more scary than anything else (because I was home alone), but they couldn't find the cause. They didn't bother to check on the babies, so that of course has me a little worried, but our next u/s is this Monday. I still feel like I don't feel them moving at all, and I will be 20 weeks on Monday, so either I feel them and don't realize it, or they just aren't kicking me hard enough. I am sure the stress and anxiety will decrease once I know I am feeling them.
Well, I guess I've rambled on long enough. In all my boredom yesterday I decided to create a blog. I'll post the link if you feel like checking it out, although so far my only post is my pregnancy story, which you all know WAY too well. But, if you're bored...here it is...
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
