Malya- I am so very sorry for you, there are no words for the pain you are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm very thankful you have a wonderful DH and women on here, who unfortunately, know all too well how you feel to lean on while you grieve and heal. Please take care.

Stephanie-How exciting! I think one of each will be great (that's my secret wish for mine!) I'm hoping they can tell next week at my u/s. I'll be a little over 15 weeks, what do you think?

I hope everyone is well-take care!

Sara - One of the girls from the twin thread found out at 15 weeks she is having two boys so yes, very possible to find out gender that early. Actually, if they have a really good machine, it can be detected at 11 weeks with 80% accuracy. They like to wait till 15 at minimum though for that 95% accuracy level. :) Good luck! I hope you find out!!

Babyluv - Thanks! Are you hoping for anything? Of course we will all be happy with whatever we get, like me... I wanted two boys but one of each turns out to be perfect. Even if it was two girls I would be over the moon. The doc said all looks great and healthy and based on the u/s and the blood tests, we got the best possible results we could get. That's all I hoped for.

Malya - Of course still thinking about you. Your words still are carried with me. Through your loss and what all happened, I just keep thinking how good it is that you are still here and healthy.

Hope all you other girls are doing ok spite our heartache for Malya. Some good news at this point would be nice to hear if anyone has any. I have been pretty depressed spite my good news.

Sorry that I was MIA yesterday, I just wasnt feeling good at all, thankfully today I feel back to myself - ugh can you imagine trying to find a dr on Memorial day weekend? I must have gotten lucky!

Steph - OMG you're going to have one of each! YAY! It just doesnt get any better than that! How surprised were you when they told you the genders?
its funny how we all thought different than what the sono said - lol. I love your sono pics - they are so clear. its super clear when you're looking at the sono screen but a crapshoot as to if you get clear pics or not, isnt it? And yes, how you described what you go through at night with your nose/ sinus? Welcom to my world in the summer - ugh - I think I can go through a box of tissues on a bad night. No wonder I prefer cooler temps. Is your DH over the top? I'll bet he is!

Sara - What? Why was your principal even acting like a jerk? Thats not funny for a woman who is pg with twins no less! to have to be lifting & moving heavy desks all over? So not right. Well then we'll see who needs help over the next year, wont we? Ha Ha. Umm no, i havent even gotten the nursery room emptied out, or painted yet so we can see what furniture is in the budget - then when all thats done then clothes - since thats the most fun part, right? :wink:
I hope you get to find out if you're right about b/g twins next week!

Helene - What a wonderful idea to learn sign language. Will Jamie get started early learning it too?

Gi - Aww, Jason sounds so sweet! I might have to swipe that idea from you since I know that Chris will tear up as well! No flutters yet, but the OB said should be within the next few weeks! I cant wait!

Angela - Its hard to have 2 Drs at once - but the RE is still in charge and besides he's the one who got you pg! I know HR OBs like to watch pts pretty closely but weekly u/s? You are surely in great hands!

Dodo - My long awaited friend! Congratulations mama! Your betas look great - now you just have to get through the hard wait til the u/s. You'll see that all your appts you couldnt care less unless you'll be getting an u/s! Patience dust until the 7th! I lost my older dog, so now just 1 - Gracie. How is your puppy doing? Is your DH too happy these days? I'll bet that he is! - xoxo

Claudia - How are you and the cutest bump in the world doing? I hope you're not working too much now, you should get a lighter load soon, right?

hugs & prayers to us all - xoxo

Stephanie - I was so upset yesterday about Malya that I couldn't reply to your post but I am absolutely thrilled for you! Congratulations ... a boy and a girl! That is absolutely perfect! Please continue to take it easy!

Katie – Yes, it is very hard to have two physicians at the same time. I was just explaining that to my DH because he began to become extremely frustrated with all of the different advice. It just reminds him of the poor care that I received from my old OB last year w/ Ashley. But, I really don’t think that is the case this time. I think both of my docs are just be overly cautious and I definitely need it!

To all the rest of my on-line mommies, please have a wonderful weekend! I have been so exhausted and tired that I haven’t left the house yet to enjoy this weather. I just keep sleeping … lol!

Malya,

I honestly dont know what to say to you and dh but i am utterly devasted for both of ye and cant imagine the pain ye are going thro. It broke my heart to read your nightmare. I am so truly sorry for your loss no one deserves something like this, i pray in time your heart will heal and you will try again, Angela knows exactly how you feel and what you will go thro. so lean on her for support if you need it.

Angela - You are being well looked after. I think your doctors are all being very cautious for you. Dh might get frustrated because of all the advice and lack of last time, but all the advice should help calm him as he knows these doctors have you in their best interest. Thank you for the congrats. :)

Katie - I hope you are feeling better. Laying down or sleeping is so hard with all the nose issues. Good news is my headaches are not coming on as much or as strong lately. Lets hope I didn't jinx myself there. lol Yes, one of each... pretty cool huh? :) I have a lot more pics they gave me but they gave me more of the boy than the girl. The appt ran so late that when adding it to the dvd they were in a hurry. There were a bunch they could have added. The sonographer did most of the u/s and claimed she couldn't get a good profile of baby boy but I have one in my pics, not sure what that was about. Doc came in trying to get a good profile, by that time he really couldn't because he was facing my back. Andrew is over the top. He got a little nervous at first because they told us baby girl's gender first. lol Then they showed us the still that I posted and pointed to the thing between the legs and he bursted out loudly.. YES! He wouldn't shut up about it most of the rest of the day.

So I went to Motherhood and boy are they expensive. I got one shirt and a pair of capris. Well, on me they are capris, they are long shorts on everyone else. The real capris were high waters on me. Darn these hobbit legs of mine! Anyway, the shirt is cute, it's my favorite color and I decided to wear the new outfit today for the BBQ we are going to. I also took a pic with my phone of the baby bump. In the last couple weeks the belly really grew and not wearing jeans over my belly really lets me see how big I actually got. I thought I was looking pretty huge lately. :) I thought I would post it. When I take pics with my phone I have to use the mirror to see the screen to take it so I can't hold the phone too far from me. I tried using the mirror the other way, like most of you do but I don't have a full length mirror and my butt is so short, to take a pic in the bathroom mirror would cut most of me off. So, sorry it's another close one. One of these days I will get someone to take a good pic of me and Andrew with the baby bump. DD isn't good at taking pics... tried that already. lol

No time for personals ladies tomorrow morning I promise I will do that.

Here is what I have been working on all day:

It's finally complete and it is a masterpiece. I had to change all the faces of course but not only that the photographer at Sears decided to cut my feet all together so I had to dress up again at home so dh could take a new picture so I could complete the picture... Boy I really got to open a studio noone knows how to take pictures here... :)

Just too funny but I thank God I was able to create this masterpiece with His help!!! Amen!!

Today is Monday and here are the personals:

Angela - Yes now photos are all done... I can start to relax :) And yes the sign language is aimed at Jamie and Vance so they can learn and we just follow so we can sign to him when he is ready to learn. Dh thinks it's too early but I would like to know how to sign things like "want to eat" when I feed him etc. I would like it to become natural to sign as we speak just like any other language? We'll see how it goes.

So you will be getting weekly u/s that is great. I am sure your insurance won't mind... how many times have you been pg and had to pay for that ?? Not that often hey!! This little bean is worth all the others you lost so he gets all the attention :)

dodo - what a good news and congratulatiosn that is amazing and really nice Betas... so you did donor egg how do you feel about it being a success? how exiting!

Malya - OMG I can't believe this happened... Oh how sad and devastated it was to read your story and how horrible and scary it was for you to be so week and in so much danger. I never though inducing labor early would cause so much dammage... Oh girl I am so in with your dh about YOU being ok and getting back on your feet soon. How horrible it was and still will be for a few weeks for you dear. Take your time and we will be waiting when you return and rested. Hugs and Love. OMG I can't stop crying!!!

Steph - Yes money is nothing when 2 babies are coming your way and it's the joyus days of your life...

so you have ONE girl and a boy... well imagine that... You know what you will love it. Imagine the beautiful pictures you will get once they are born to have blue and pink together. I am so happy for you. I know you wanted 2 boys but you have the perfect pregnancy :)

btw very nice bump and looks just great for 2 babies so amazing!!!

Katie - actually the sign language lessons are geared towards him and we just follow behind :) I would like to do this as a weekly basis until he can speak at about 5yo so just another thing me and my kids can enjoy and the great thing about it is she is going to come over to our house... that is such a releif!

Glad you are feeling better today Katie.

AFM - now I only have to worry about OB apts and one for a full time job. Feels so much more relax yuhu!!! I will probably get the montage printed in super large format instead of printing all individually and frame each photos too much work. And so my teens now can move on and do whatever they want and mess up their lives it's ok :) well I mean no more photos. My dd showed up with extreme RED eyes I was like lost again... she kept saying she tried her contact lenses and they gave her red eyes yeasterday?? Not sure if that was true or if it was just drugs use or whatever, lets hope not!! I will try to believe her story. So of course she didn't want to wear proper shoes so we could see her running shoes on the pictures but was able to remove that and her eyebraw piercing and remove Andrew's pimple face. DH doesn't understand why he had so many pimples he normally doesn't have that many. But it was all fun in the end I was able to whiten my dd's eyes and put the perfect smiles, arms, feet and everything where it goes... So to be able to get the CD I had to order pictures but of course not retouched I will have no use of them how silly!!!

So next apt is OB on June 9 and Job Test on June 10 for a permanent position (which I always fail anyways so not stressted about that)... No more house owning just rent and watering the flowers... summer is going to be good.

I hope the day goes better for everyone and the week too and that Malya can find peace in her trauma and desaster... I guess the shock will hit later like it does... I will be sure to keep you in my prayers daily dear. Hugs. So sorry about everything I wish I could do something.

Katie: I'm sorry about your doggie. Mine just had a serious kidney infection. His weight was dropped from 20 lbs to 13 lbs. He's getting worse and didn't want to eat at all and freaked us out. He's put on antibiotics and meds and food for kidney infection. but he's very afraid to eat food until he's give appetite stimulant med. He's now eating again few days again. When was your doggie not here? Was it disease or he's old? Again, so sorry to hear about him! Thanks for the update of the chart! :)
