Gi - HAPPY BRATDAY!! lol Sorry I am late, but the snacking issue with the babies has thrown things a bit off track lately. It seems I am just feeding babies all day and night. I am sure it will be ok soon enough. So Kayla is still cooking huh? Geesh... I wonder if or when we will get a singleton that will come out spontaniously. lol Kayla baby... you still have some time to make it a surprise... get to work little girl!
Sara - Thanks for your input! I guess the numbness and shooting pain is just the things we have to deal with for quie a while yet. Ethan was given an antibiotic for his eye and it cleared right up. I am suppose to milk it by massaging it and pulling down. However, it doesn't seep anymore so I think all he had was an infection since now it is completely normal! I had a friend with a clogged duct and her eye would leak when milked and leak periodically, his doesn't. Though I know it is still too early for the ducts to really be 'working'. Though I don't want to see them cry actual tears when they cry... it will just add to the, "Aww, poor baby, what can I do to fix it." feeling. lol Maybe the snacking is just growth spurts? It has thrown them off of any type of schedule that we had going on because Ethan is the bigger snacker. Now they eat for the most part at all different times so it feels like all I am doing is feeding babies.
Babyluv - The headband was the neighbor's. She gets hats and headbands from people who make them. I tagged her in the photos if you want to message her and ask who she gets them through. I am sure they have a FB too? I know how you felt with Scarlett because that is how I am with the twins, though more so with Ethan. Funny since Angelina at first was so hard to get food down that wre had to force feed her basically since they were really getting on us the first week about her not gaining weight. Now she eats well and Ethan (the chunky butt) doesn't. I know he is getting enough food though so I guess that is all that matters. That is so great that the girls are doing so well on the boob! I wish I would have had that luck. I still try from time to time but it doesn't work as often as I would like. I can tell they are just way too use to the bottle and want that instant flow and the boob just doesn't do that unless engorged. lol So back in your prepreggo clothes? I haven't even tried to fit into mine come to think of it. I am wearing the baggy ones that I bought to grow into while I was pregnant... it was before I was ready to buy maternity pants. lol I should dig them out and see what happens. I am pretty sure they won't fit just because of the belly. What the scale says makes me feel good but I have a feeling, trying to put on those pants will regress that feeling. I just need to hit the gym, tighten up my belly the best I can and start feeling better about myself. I wish plastic surgery wasn't surgery!! lol
Angela - Good to hear that the NST went well! Sorry though that the schedule is hectic! This coming week, Andrew has appts all week, at least one a day except for turkey day. They are sending him all over the place checking out his head and heart because of his ptsd. Then I have my 5 week ob appt and Ethan has his u/s for his hips. Only 4 more weeks... that close! Seems like just yesterday that you were so worries you wouldn't make it to the 2nd tri. Here you are, so close to meeting your little girl. I bet it feels so surreal!
Claudia - Getting close there girl! Dialated and effaced! Granted not too much but it's a start! Don't you just love when the doc orders you to do fun stuff? lol I wish I would have had that!!
Maybe losing your muccus plug will have an effect? Only time will tell and I can't wait to hear the story!
Lisa - Thank you for the advice. 2 years though... wow! I can't remember if I made it back to the other thread to congratulate you on the twins, but if I didn't, CONGRATS! lol Better late then never right?
So they are automatically going to do another section? Is that by choice because of the previous one or something they recommend? How was recovery time for you last time other than it taking two years to feel your nerves working again? lol Do you know the genders?
Katie - So your doctor wants you to ignore Ryan when he wants food until it's 'time' to feed him?? I admit the snacks are hard on us parents but to refuse them food of all things? Maybe being held too much or rocked too much so not to spoil them to where that is the only thing they want all the time, but food? I just don't see that as being right, especially for a newborn! I would listen to the books at this point. Me however, I am not sure what to go by. They were almost a month early so do I treat them as if they are a month old or like they are a week old? I have no idea what to follow as far as what they should be doing at this point. Funny you said that Andrew should help or be kept up by the babies since just last night he slept right through a few screaming fits. He didn't even flinch. He was either that exhausted or ignoring it. lol He eventually got up to grab Angelina who was screaming while I was feeding Ethan. I couldn't do anything for her since I had my hands full and she had a clean butt and was just fed. Turns out she just wanted held. That is Andrew's way to quite them and though I hold them a lot, I try not to always hold them in the bed like that. I think that he is already spoiling her. lol She seems to already want to be held like that at night to go to sleep.
AFM - Well, there were things I wanted to say, but they will have to wait. I have a cranky little woman screaming my name... which right now is. "AHHHHHHH".
