ALREADBLESSED--so happy to hear from you. You got me a little worried there for a while!
So, you got the guy arrested? was going to happen next? sorry you have to go through all of that at this time.
I hear you on the hormonal part. I've been feeling pretty ok, but then there are things that **boom** just hit me. One of my classmates gets on my nerves easily, and sometimes I can't stand just listening to her voice
what's wrong with me?...I should give the woman a break!
About DH, i know some of my insecurities come up every-now-and-then. I cried the other day because I just don't feel like he's attracted to me anymore. We've not had sex in a long time (DH thinks that he's going to hurt the baby) and he barely touches me in a sexual way (he's for ever rubbing the belly). He's nice and caring, don't get me wrong, (he's become really protective making sure that I don't hurt myself, that the belly is well protected, etc), but I just don't feel that loving/sexual feeling between us. It's almost like living with a really close friend
I broke down and told him that. Of course, he was sweet and gave me a little speech about how precious our girl was, and how much we've been waiting for this and how he was afraid to ruin it just to have **a little fun.** He reassured me that it was temporary, that he was also missing making love but that he could control himself because there was a major reason to wait. Anyway, he hugged me and made me feel better, but it does cross my mind every-now-and then.
The spa idea sounds lovely. If I lived near by, I would just come pick you up and drive to the nearest spa and stay there for at least a good 6 hours
JENNY--I'm so happy to be pregnant, and I'm enjoying this belly so much. I love to have people ask me questions, rub my belly, etc. But, like you, I feel like I've been pregnant for 2 or 3 years already
just because of the anticipation every month of "are we pregnant or not?" and then of course, all the treatments. Yesterday I had the feeling of "I want this baby to come out soon" but then I thought "what's wrong with me? she needs to come out when she's at least 37 weeks, and we are not ready, anyway!!!"
BABYLOVES--I was also wondering about you, my doc friend! wow! bed rest. I know it's pretty common for twin/multiples mommies. Sounds like you're in good spirits though, that's great. Yes, keep those babies in there for as long as you can. You're doing a good job with two in there honey. Drink, drink, drink (and don't forget to eat your prunes, hahahaha). I actually have to remind myself of doing the same. I'm not good at it under normal circumstances, especially water. It's almost like a medication, I have to remind myself "girl, drink some water!!!" Thinking of you, and sending you lots of patience as you nest with your babies in bed (by the way, there's this little bird that is nesting in the tree right outside our balcony, and she's my heroine!!! she just sits there keeping her babies warm, I open my curtain and sit here on my couch and we both look at each other. It sounds cheesy, but it really makes me reflect on motherhood).
Literatriz --how is my other mommie on bed rest doing? how's your dh doing? my mom is going through something similar right now. I feel so bad because even through the phone I can hear her voice in pain. The worst part for her is that there's a shortage of medications in Venezuela right now, so she can't find the treatment she needs to help her body heal
frustrating. She decided to stay with her sister for a couple of days to relax and get her help.
SONU--like Literatriz said, 1.5 kilos sounds good to me at your stage...she/he is probably bigger/heavier now. They do put on weight rapidly at this stage! You're close my dear SONU, hang in there! How did your appointment on Wednesday go? let us know whenever you have a chance.
About me? well, I went to see my midwife yesterday and everything is moving right along. I gained 2 pounds in the last 2 weeks (my midwife thought that was great), my belly is measuring 32 cms. and my girl is already head down! of course, she's so active and dances so much around that my midwife said that there's a chance she'll change positions...we'll see! Oh, and I have a date for my baby shower: March 14th! kind of close to the due date, but it's what works for all of us and I'm excited about it. Two of my friends are hosting it, I'm so thankful for their kindness and friendship.
MICHELLE, KERPUPPLES, and EMFOSUM sending you all lots of love as well.
