Gah! I've been trying to post all day and cant seem to get a minute to myself - now I'm wiped out so this will have to be quick.

Steph - I hope that your bleeding has slowed down a bit? now, theres just what you need excessive bleeding while taking care of two babies, ugh. At least your Dr's office was able to get you in quickly, i'm thinking that its ok, and that since you had two babies, two placentas that your body just has quite a bit to get rid of? I hope thats the case, and I have a feeling that you're on your feet all day and most of the night, too, right? that cant be helping with this bleeding, try to take it easier until your appt on wed, ok? Oh, I was so hopeful about Andrew's car seat idea, but yep, these babies all seem to have their own schedules that dont include sleep for us parents, right? - much love - xoxoxo

Angela - Ooooh, you are super close now! just two weeks left? I hope that Gabriella's u/s comes back with glowing results on monday and thankfully you can breathe easier now that you've seen her for yourself that she's doing just fine and keeping busy in there. Actually, she'll be here for Christmas, can you believe it? the best present ever! - xoxo

Natasha - aw, monkee, what a cute name for your new addition! Well Nataliah is confirmed as a girl! yippeee! Now you can finish her room with no more doubts that team Pink will be here soon! i hope that she's feeling less camera shy at your next 4-d scan, boy these babies sure like to get camera shy for these appts, dont they? How are you feeling these days? - xoxo

PA - Hee hee, you got your DH good with that "bachlorette" joke - bet he was wishing he didnt start the game with you! I hope that your mom gets along with her aide/ nurse and that you dont have to stress yourself so much, its not good for the baby, but what can you do? After trying so long for a miracle its best not to take chances, and no no one thinks that your selfish at all. In fact it sounds like you have done everything possible to make things run smoothly for her, but you must think of yourself sometimes too ( and that little miracle in there) its hard to keep on top of it all, all the time. Just thank God that when she needed you, you were there and thinking straighter than she was - hang in there honey, I can imagine how rough this is for you - xoxo

Gi - Wheeeee! I'm so happy for you! And wow, she's a big healthy girl! You did a great job growing that little bean into a beautiful daughter! Now, tell me how hard it is to pry her out of Jason's arms? have you already told him that he's hogging the baby? haha. Are you healing alright? And yes, skipping the pain med doses means you pay for it later - ugh. Ryan sleeps in his crib just fine at night, but during the day all he wants is the swing, or to sleep on my shoulder, which I love, but its pretty hard to get anything done like that - oh, well the cleaning can wait while the small emperor sleeps, right? hee hee- xoxo

Claudia - How are you doing new mama? Are you and the beautiful Miss Madelyn home yet? I'm so happy for you, I cant wait to see some pics and hear how your labor went, hopefully easy, but from what you've inferred already, what has been easy for us this whole process? I hope that you've got your nursery and the last minute shopping all done and that you're just enjoying your new family!- xoxoxo

Jamila - Oh honey, your nursery sounds just beautiful! You must be so eager to have it all put together and ready to go. You've got plenty of time for all the little details that make it fun, I changed ours more than once. Thanks, I think he's pretty cute myself, but then again I am totally in love with him! lol. Are you feeling OK? have you been getting lots of kicks and movement? They'll just keep getting stronger and stronger, I loved that part. Soon the kicks will keep you up at night sometimes, haha it starts early, doesnt it? - xoxo

Hazel - Ah, I know the feeling well, especially today, when its taken me twice as long to read then half the day to finally post in peace. And by now, I'm probably not even making nuch sense since I could fall asleep right here and now - sigh. I'm jealous that King George is sleeping throught the night! It must make your day better having some sleep behind you. I miss it alot. He's growing so fast - 13.6 already? he's gonna be a big boy! Ah, so George is wearing you out during the day though? Well he definitely has a better social life than I do! I think in the past month, i've left the house maybe 3 times? All for Dr's appts - sigh. If it werent for Chris doing the shopping, we'd be out of everything! Are you really expecting snow ? We had some flurries the other day, but they didnt amount to anything and I was thinking, how can it be time for snow already? Guess babies have a way of speeding up time, huh? Thanks for the heads up about the after effects of their vaccines, it does seem like they get an awful lot at once, so I was thinking it probably will take effect once you get them home. How are Joya & Flynn finding life with a baby? Gracie has calmed down a bit and doesnt tear into the nursery at the first noise he makes, but she has become the diaper inspector, and she's always right too! Miss you lots- much love- xoxoxo

Ronda - Think of you often and hope that you're regrouping and figuring out which way to go. I'll bet that you;re super busy with the girl's and being Santa Claus hunting down their most wanted toys. I hope that you're doing well and listening to your heart - xoxo

Lou - I'm always on your side and wishing you all the baby dust there is! Hey, it took getting to lucky number 7 for Gi and myself, so I'll keep you in my prayers that its the lucky number for you too. In the meantime, I'm so glad that Randy & Roxy both had sucessful surgeries and that all is ok. I know you'll keep us posted on how your lap goes. i had one to remove both tubes and the healing time was really nothing, you'll do just fine - never give up, you will get there! - much love xoxoxo

AFM - I give up - only the small emperor is allowed to sleep I guess. Now I have found out that coffee only does so much, apparently it stops working after awhile, just when I need it the most. Chris brought home the "pee pee tee pee" today as a joke, so I go to try it and as my hand was maybe 6 inches away from him he got me again! Ah, with the tee pee in my hand! oh, yes, he's a funny boy alright! And do you know that he smiles when he does this? It cant possibly be that he finds peeing on mommy funny, but its hard to believe that he always smiles right at that moment - haha baby humor I suppose? Well Gracie
snuck up on him this morning and with one lick slobbered all over his face, poor guy didnt know what to make of that, but he didnt cry, so thats good. Today was a meltdown free day (hope I didnt just jinx myself, the days not over just yet) so that makes for a good day around here. And the pacifier game? Of spitting it out as soon as I walk away? Umm, yeah, thats his favorite game so far. I think the object of it is to see how many times mommy will bend over and squat down in front of the swing until my knees are screaming - sounds like fun, yes?
thinking of you all, just sooooo tired all the time - hugs& prayers to us all - xoxoxo

Katie, LOVE the photos of Ryan, he is such a handsome man! I don't have the facility to upload photos from the iPad and never seem to get the chance to go on the main laptop these days, but I've put a fair few photos of George on Facebook if you're interested. Joya & Flynn are really good with George, thanks for asking, in fact I don't think they're at all interested! We only have Joya here at the moment as Mum has taken Flynn for some company and cuddles for a few weeks - life is soooo much easier with only one dog in the house! Mum is coming to stay from this Saturday for a week though so it'll be dog chaos once again! So you've pretty much stayed home since Ryan arrived? The main reason why I try and make sure that I have something in the diary every day is that George is so much more demanding if he's at home all day. I have discovered that having different things to look at and listen to makes him so much better behaved, and so being out for a few hours every day gives me a rest from carrying him around the house trying to stop him shouting and screaming! Even just sitting in a coffee shop with a friend or walking round the shops, with the sounds of people talking around him and traffic etc, seems to be enough to distract him, and he will either snooze quietly or sit in my lap and happily look around him for a while, two things which just don't happen at home! So I highly recommend trying it to see whether it helps with Ryan, even if it's just walking round the mall for an hour.

Have any of the other new mums found the same thing with their babies? Any other tips go try and keep George distracted and entertained very gratefully received!

Steph, I don't much like the sound of your bleeding, I'm so glad that you're seeing someone tomorrow. Like Katie said, hopefully it is just a product of having had two placentas during your pregnancy. If it helps, I got my first bleed post pregnancy about two weeks ago, and it was way heavier than usual, which a few friends have told me is to be expected for the first period you get after giving birth.

Gi and Claudia, how are the first few days going with your beautiful girls?

Hey, where did everybody go? Its starting to echo in here :lol:

Claudia - bet you and little Madelyn are settling in just fine and that you cant take your eyes off of her long enough to post :wink:
have a happy Hanukkah! but you've already received the best gift ever! - xoxo

Karen Is today your u/s? I cant wait to hear all about it!

Hazel - Aw, thanks honey, I'm entirely biased but I think he's just too cute myself. I unsubscribed from FB, so I'm not too sure that I can go on and see photos anymore? I cant imagine having to handle two dogs plus a new baby, that sure is alot of attention to be dishing out, you poor thing, you probably wont get a minute to yourslef next week. How is your Mum adjusting? I'm sure that the loyal and loving Flynn has been helping her alot, I love how dogs are just attuned to our emotions. Aw, George sounds adorable and it sounds like he is a thinker ( he must take after his busy Mum) Its great that he's so enthused to learn and see everything that he can. Ryan turned 4 weeks today, so I'm eagerly awaiting the time ahead when he is a bit more awake and alert, and figures out his arms and hands are actually his, and not some foreign things attacking him all the time :roll: Do you remember when George realized / or gained control over them? The books are too vague on time frames. I was going to take him out for the first time by ourselves today, but we have ridiculous rain and really high winds, it toppled over a tree in the yard, maybe tomorrow then. Hugs & kisses to you & George- xoxo

Steph - I'm getting a bit worried about you, hope you're ok and just super busy with the super cuties! Good luck at your appt today - xoxo

Angela - How are you doing honey? i hope that you've been resting and taking it easy... xoxo

AFM - Jeez, how is it possible that Ryan is 1 month old already? When did that happen? I'd like to attempt to get the Christmas tree up today and get the decorations done, but of course that depends on the small emperor and his mood... Ack, for 2 nights in a row when I go to get him in the morning, he has completely kicked his swaddle off and the infant positioner is maybe 12" away from where we put it, I'm afraid to have him swaddled without the positioner, just in case he kicks so hard that he turns himself over, but I'm thinking if I put him to bed without a swaddle, he'll just keep waking himself up flailing away with his arms - i'm confused now. Ah, does the worrying ever end? - much love to you all - xoxo

Katie, you'll have to let me know how it goes when you take Ryan out! To answer your question, I think George started to get more co-ordination with his arms and hands at maybe 7-8 weeks, although I haven't been keeping track too closely (bad Mummy...) and it's a gradually changing thing. Thanks for asking about Mum, she says she's doing OK but she is never good at opening up about her feelings (and never wants to worry me) and I worry a bit that she's bottling it all up. It'll be lovely to have her back to stay for a while, and for George to spend some more quality time with her. She is going to look after both dogs for us when we go to Switzerland for a long weekend a week on Friday. Yikes, the thought of trying to pack all of the stuff for George and take him on a flight, we must be crazy... Oh, by the way, we have never been able to swaddle George as right from birth he has kicked his way out of the blankets within five minutes. So initially he used to sleep in a vest and sleepsuit/bodysuit with a blanket or two over him, depending on how cold it was. We tucked the blanket(s) tightly under each side of the mattress so it went across his body quite closely, and left his arms free. Once he hit 10lbs, we put him in a sleepsuit and a 2.5 tog baby sleeping bag overnight, which I think is one of the best things ever invented because it's fitted around his upper body but wide at the bottom so he can kick to his heart's content without kicking off the bedding and getting cold.

Wow, I think this is my third post this week, I will try and keep this up!

P.s. I was going to try and compare experiences of a post vaginal birth with you ladies, because I'm not sure that what I've been feeling has been entirely normal, but am I the only one on here so far who hasn't had their baby(ies) by c-section?

Stephanie- I hope you are doing ok and the bleeding has subsided. Please let us know how you are doing. We're worried!

Hazel- I love those sleep sacks too. I have a few for my baby. I hope they work well. :)

Katie- Go to babies-r-us and get a Swadle ME. My sister-in-law swears by them. She got me a few for the baby shower. It is a swadle wrap with velcro that Ryan should not be able to get out of! No more scaring himself with his little arms. :)

Angela- I hope you are resting and doing ok hon.

Claudia- OH I'm so excited for you still. XOXO

AFM-I can't remember anything else. I'm still sick. My nose is a faucet of yuck. My brain is mush. I can't take anything but I am going through A LOT of tissue and hoping it does not move into my chest.
We finished painting the nursery. Now we have to install the closet system. I called for delivery of the crib. It will be here next Tuesday. OMG I am so excited.
My mom came home from the hospital today. We are trying to get her set up with a home nurse and some PT at home. I called today to set up lifealert. So that will help. It will detect if she falls. If she falls and lies to them and says she's ok I have it set up to call me no matter what if they detect a fall. Then I can drive over there and see if she really is ok or if she just doesn't want to "bother anyone."
So that's it in a nutshell. Just hoping this cold goes away so I can go get my flu shot which I have procrastinated on. OOPS. Also...I can't believe how old everyone's babies are getting. It feels like just yesterday you were all giving birth and I was crying to DH about how happy I was for each of you. Now I'm in my 3rd trimester and I am sitting here wondering where time has gone. I can't believe I have 11 weeks left.
Much love and holiday cheer to you all. XOXO

Katie – I love the pictures of Ryan! He is so cute … It sounds like Gracie and Ryan are getting along well, which is good. I can’t believe Ryan is already 4 weeks old. It goes by so fast doesn’t it? I just put our Christmas tree up last night … well my DH started it because I’m supposed to be on bed rest but I normally do it each year and he was having a hard time putting the pieces together … lol. So once again I said let me help you and reluctantly he agreed since it was already time to go to bed so we could both go to work. When you are talking about swaddling Ryan, are you using a blanket or the swaddle outfits that they sell in the stores? I hear the ones they sell in the stores work very well. I have about four or five for Gabriella so we will see how they work out. They sell them at Babies R Us, Target, etc for about $25.

Stephanie – I hope that you are doing well and the bleeding has slowed down a bit for you. I wonder if you have a little bit of the placenta left in there especially since there were two. I had small portion still left in my uterus after delivering Ashley last year even though they insisted they got it all. It is better to have them take a good look at you just to make sure though.

Hazel – Hopefully, I will continue to the vaginal birth trend but you never know until I get there in the next few weeks. I am glad that you guys will have a little get away weekend because I am sure that you need a little time away. I think you will be fine with all of George’s items. It is a little awkward at first to travel with a baby but I didn’t think it was too bad with two people. My DH and I took my nephew to Texas when he was only a few months old on the plane and I was surprised how well it went. Of course he didn’t like his ears popping but he didn’t cry just tugged at his ears a bit and then slept for most of the flight until we made a mistake and gave him some apple juice! It was instant energy and constant movement … that is when my DH banned apple juice until we got there … lol.

PA_FA – My OB ok’d Sudafed for me when I had a cold but that is up to you and your doc if you would like to take it. It worked for me so hopefully it will work for you too. Yeah for the crib coming soon! Hopefully, you can post some pictures and do a better job than I did with that photo bucket. I still haven’t gotten the hang of it yet! Oh well, maybe on my maternity leave I can try again. I am glad that your mom is home from the hospital and what a great idea with the life alert! I called them too for my grandmother but I haven’t gotten any further than just receiving info yet so I will be curious to see how it goes with your mom.

AFM – Ok ladies, I am officially getting irritated and ready for delivery. I was in such a bad mood yesterday and I couldn’t figure out why … well when I thought about it and I realized that I am the only one that is still pregnant who was due within the same time frame as me. I have two co-workers who were only days apart from me, who delivered on the same day before thanksgiving. And, there are two couples who my DH and I hang out with on occasion who were days apart from me too who delivered yesterday and today. Most of you ladies have delivered already also. Oh, and to make it worst, my DH and I were watching the news at 6am this morning and the reporter says John … will not be in today because his wife just delivered their baby yesterday! It is strange though, I am one of the highest risk pregnancies out of the group that I know then why am I the last one to go? It is kind of ironic if you think about it. Oh well, at least she is considered term today or some docs say at the end of the 37 weeks so hopefully that means no NICU time! I think this 10 1/2 year wait to finally meet her is really getting to me now. Have a great night ladies!

angela- aww sweetheart i completely see your point of view. your time s coming real soon. I cant believe i'm 9 weeks away and you can have your baby at anytime now. I bet your just anxious. 10.5 yrs is a long time to wait.Im just happy for you now that you'll finally have your baby in your hands before you know it. I hope the u/s goes better but I think she'll be even bigger so she may still me cuddled toward my spine and in the placenta.

katie- you have an adorable son those pics were precious. monkee is a handful these days and now he's bitting like crazy im concerned but hoping its just a phase.The whole potty training thing works on its days i swear he peesof hos pad or in the middle of the floor because he's mad and on purpose. haha a nude pose I never thought of it that way.

Otherwise ladies im doing well just the minor aches and pains. Im almost done with the semester ladies!! im so excited i did so well im proud of myself. I have til the 21st of this month and its offically over. I hope you all are doing well and enjoying them babies. i hope you all had a great thanksgiving and had lots of food. =)

Angela- She had it in Wichita when we lived there so that was cool. I called today and within 3 hours had a call back with a date/time to set it up. It will be hooked up friday.

OK so now for my quick vent. You guys are not effing going to believe this. ARRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! My mom has been home for less than 8 hrs and she already fell again. I just got back from her house. It took me an hour, while 7 mos pregnant, to get her (all 180lbs) off of the floor. OMG! Seriously! My DH is on a plane right now on his way to Amsterdam so I am all alone. She called my at almost 11pm. I knew immediately something was wrong because we normally don't call that late. Especially since I am sick an almost went to bed an hour earlier. Anyhow...just had to scream. I have changed my Xmas wish list. I now want an hour long prenatal massage. Damn it...I deserve it. :P

Hope you all are having a better night than me. XOXO

Hi ladies. So my u/s went great! They saw the gestational sac and the yolk sac. And just ONE this time! :) I'm 5w2d so too early for HB. So I'll return to RE in about 7-10 days for HB check. Yeah! :)

Steph- How are you doing? Is the bleeding under control? Thinking of you and hoping you are ok!

Katie- Love the pics of the little emperor! hehehe He's just so adorable.

PA-FA- I am sorry to hear about your mom having a fall again. You do indeed deserve a PNM. They really help with back aches and stress relief! All I'm sure you could use that right now! :)

Angela- I can only imagine the impatience building to meet your little one. I know by the time I get to where you are I'll be itching to get the baby out! I only have to get to 38 weeks b/c of my TAC. I'm not allow to go past that due to increased risk of uterine rupturing. Yeah! So only 32.5 to go! hehehee Anywho, try to enjoy the last few days of being pregnant with a perfect little baby. Take some pics of your belly...maybe do that belly mold/cast thing to remember how big it got. That could be fun....or am I romanticizing the feeling of being 37 weeks pregnant? xoxoxo

Hazel- How's your little one and motherhood treating you? Does is seem surreal sometimes?

For those I missed...sending you a all a huge hug! Only 32.5 weeks to go for me! ;)

Karen- Yeah on seeing a sac! I know the next u/s will be just as wonderful! As for romanticizing 3rd trimester...here I am at 30w and most everything is great except everytime I roll over in bed my hips and pelvic area pop. Like how you can crack your back or knuckles? Except it actually hurts! LOL So those are my owies for right now. ;)

Hey ladies,

Sorry still no pics still have no-one to put them up for me, j tried but cant but if someone has time to tell me Exactly what to do once you plug the camera into the computer maybe the ejit that i am will be able to do it, Oh but i am on Facebook hmmmm quite crap at that too jasons brother put on a picture video of jason and Kayla (i didnt get some pics done yet as wasnt feeling great that day but will be getting some to add to the dvd at the wkend) if ye are interested in looking, now again sorry i dont even know how facebook works (rarely on it) but do you need info. from me or me to accept you as friends??? Anyway Kayla is doing great, such a heartbreaker even if those smiles arent real yet!! She was just a tad fussy yesterday, not crying or anything but spat up 2 bottles and didnt really settle but then i gave her a good feed at 11:30pm she slept till 4:30 then j fed her again and she slept another 4 hrs, this (touch wood) has continued all day with min. fuss!!! As jason said he would do the middle night feed and she slept so well it meant i got 8 hrs sleep :lol: heck i havent had that since about 3 mths pregnant!! Her cord came off today and i was like ah the last evidence of our life line together :cry: she discovered she likes pacifiers (we say dummies/soothers here) they seem to settle her during nappy change and helping her nod of to sleep. I am feeling much better, still require painkillers but its just a dull pain nothing major, i now only look about 4 mths pregnant :lol:

Katie yeah jason is hogging kayla ha ha, he is at home till monday since we are snowed in and he cant work which works out perfectly for us, he tends (in my opinion!) to hold her for too long after her feed so then she doesnt like to go back to her crib ( why would she when she has a cuddler at her beck and call) but i just put her straight down and let her cry a bit tough love but will be worth it. Your pics of Ryan are adorable he has lost that newborn look already, oh dont they grow up quickly!!

Hazel i am glad to hear your mam is coming over to spend time with ye, it may help her take her mind of things (if theres such a thing). That sounds so funny with you and george dancing to mtv!! From about 20 wks pregnant my pg book said to listen to relaxing music every day and when baby is born they will remember it, so everyday i listened to IlDivo even though jason was getting sick of it and now i have started to play it in the bedroom to settle Kayla and it seems to work.

PA your poor mum how did she fall again??? At least she called this time but i dont like the idea of you on your own at 7mths spending 1 hr trying to help her up but then again what do you do???? I too def. dont think you are been selfish in not been able to take care of her, you spent too long waiting on this precious miracle and for you and dh to finally raise your family. I am sure your mum would understand, she knows you have your own life to lead. Hope you are feeling better, i had those pelvic clicks/cracking in last wk of pregnancy it was so weird!!

Angela i too if i had the chance would have begged the docs. to take Kayla out early if i was given the chance, i swear the closer i got to the due date (and beyond!!) the more nervous i got even when they were wheeling me down for the section i only relaxed when she started to kick and i knew she was ok for now and would be out in about 30 min!! Yeah i am a freaking worrier!!!! Ha it hasnt stopped now i check every now and then when she is asleep if she is breathing!!! 2 wks You Can Do It!!!!

Claudia hope everything is ok and ye are both thrieving.

Steph oh i didnt realise you were still bleeding and it sounds sooo heavy, i am glad they are checking you out. So the car seat thing was just a coincidence, how in the name do you do night feeds with twins it must be so tough!!

Baby luv and Sara hope all is well.

Lou I am with Katie and you are joining the 7th Time Lucky group :lol: in the meantime good look with the procdure and who knows maybe trying natural will work, i am on an ivf site here in Ireland as well and a girl there got pg naturally after 4 failed attempts she was actually waiting on AF to arrive to start her meds for a FET and to say she was shocked was an understatement!!

Ronda thanks for the best wishes, hope you are ok xxxx

Karen OH I am sooooo thrilled to hear you got a sac and yolk!!!! Thats such fantastic news, best of luck next wk for heartbeat but you are right where you need to be now and it only gets better from here, your 2 little angels will watch over their little bro/sis and keep "it" safe....besides you have a cervix of steel now!!!!

Sorry i have forgotten anyone, hugs and kissed to you all xxxxxx

Ok ladies, I have a quick minute between dinner and juggling babies now that Andrew is home. lol The OB appt went well I think. I don't think I mentioned it in all the excitement of babies and drugs, but during the removal of Ethan's placenta, part of my uterus tore. The doctor referred to it as looking like hamburger because of looking like it went through a meat grinder. Nice huh? Anyway, he stitched it up and trusts it will be just fine and that my body will take a little while to heal from it. My bleeding does get bad but it subsides so it doesn't seem to be too much of a concern unless it doesn't subside. I am still bleeding but more like a normal period. The night before last I could have sworn I would have been bleeding to death though. I stopped using pads because of the nasty feeling of peeing myself, so I thought tampons might be the better choice and last a bit longer. So I changed and laid down in bed, the babies weren't going to sleep well so I sat up to look at the time and gush! I went through 3 tampons in three hours and I went to clean up in a short bath and there was enough in there to fill up another tampon or two. It finally stopped before my appt though. The ob also gave me a pap just to make sure that everything is ok in that area and suggested BC to help my uterus heal and control my periods.

Gi - Sounds like Kayla is settling in well spite a few little spit up issues. That is something to get use to. Not that I am loving it, smelling liek sour milk all day long. lol

Karen - Awesome news to see a sac and a yolk sac! YAY baby! I am so over the moon for you! Can't wait to see the post saying what the heartbeat was. :)

Pa - OMG I can't believe you attempted that on your own!! You should have called on a neighbor or someone?? Call 911 again?? I know from a previous pregnancy what doing too much can do. With me, I had a placenta rupture, my water broke and it was full of blood. Scary! Luckily I was term and just doing too much in the nursery to get it ready (my ex wasn't a big help at all) but if I was doing all that too early, who knows what might have happened. Take it easy!! No lifting big heavy mamas off the floor! Get help from someone. If she wants to ***** and moan that someone else had to help her, let her. You are taking care of a miracle inside you!

Angela - Oh I bet you are feeling irritated by now. You worked so hard for here and she is so close to being here but not. On top of that those aches and pains and such. The good news is that soon enough she will be out and in your arms. It's inevitable. :)

Hazel - I might not have had a recent vaginal birth but I have had them previously. Maybe I can help with some answers? That is, until more mommies give birth vaginally. lol Claudia had Madelyn vaginal right? Maybe she can help too. :) How is everything going over yonder? Mom is holding up? George is as cute as ever I assume? lol

Katie - You know, we call it a Houdini too when the twins get out of their swaddles. The sleep positioner does help to keep them together though not all the time. I am a lot better at a good tight swaddle then Andrew. I tuck their arms under the upside down V that their heads go on. I fold it down then hold it tight under their arm then pull the rest over and tuck it tight under their back by holding the opposite sidestill while I tuck, then I tuck the other arm under the V and pull tight. Not sure if that is similar to what you do or not? Andrew does it similar but doesn't tuck as well as I do. lol Therefore, not quite as tight and they will escape from his swaddles way more often then mine. :)

Ok ladies, sorry for short personals and if I missed anyone.. duty yet calls again. :)

Natasha – I know you will be so excited when Dec. 21st gets here and you should be proud of yourself because you did a fantastic job juggling school and your pregnancy!

PA_FA – Oh, I am so very sorry that your mom fell already … hopefully, she wasn’t hurt. Please, please be careful lifting her off of the ground. I know you didn’t have a choice but we don’t want to worry about you going into early labor or on bed rest for some reason. If that happens again, is there a neighbor that can help you lift her if needed?

Karen – I am beyond thrilled for you! I knew your u/s would go well but it is great to read it. What a great Christmas present for you and your DH!!! I think I will take your advice and take some more pictures of my growing belly before she arrives.

Gi – I am so happy to hear from you and know that Kayla is doing well! How nice to be snowed in with your new family … I would be in heaven. Thanks for the vote of confidence that I can make it two more weeks. But, I never thought two could take so long!!!!

Stephanie – I am so relieved that your OB thinks he knows where the bleeding is coming from. I am sure with all that bleeding, you are pretty tired. I know it is hard but try to take it easy. I am sure the more you do around the house, the more you will bleed. Hopefully, the birth control will do the trick!

AFM – My NST went ok today. She wouldn’t wake up again so it took almost an hour to complete the test and then nurse says did they tell you that your amniotic fluid was low on Monday? I said “no” they said it was slightly high. She said no it was low and we need to repeat it again today. So I thought well maybe today will be the day when they induce me (I didn’t panic because I heard the heart beat so I knew she was fine). No such luck, my amniotic fluid was back to normal and I was sent home … sigh! I was relieved though that she was just fine but I am having trouble getting around now especially with the snowy weather that keeps occurring. Have a great night ladies!
