- I am so sorry for the loss of your twin, it's just so unfair ((((hugs))))) I know what you mean about missing & loving that little one. We m/c during our first pregnancy, I was only 6 weeks but I could not believe the pain I went thru -- it was so much more than the fear of having thru IVF all over again, it was more about losing a baby I was already so in love with, no matter how small he/she was. These little ones are our babies from day 1. Take the time you need to mourn your loss but don't forget to eat & sleep and do whatever else your body needs to provide a good home to your other baby! I wish you a very healthy & happy pregnancy from here ((((hugs))))
- hoping that you are right and that no news is good news about your glucose test. I do my 30 min test on Thu, and really hope that I don't hear back until after xmas so I can at least enjoy the holidays enjoying sweets
Sorry about your daughter being sick, I hope the virus passes quickly!
- sorry about your trip to the ER and you still feeling sick! Yay for your mom coming to help take care of the kids... That's great that she is able to be there for you... DH and I are pretty much on our own (my family is in France and DH's parents passed away) so we are starting to interview sitters/ nannies to help us out 2-3 hours a day once the babies are here, from taking care of the twins while I shower to helping with light housekeeping or with the dog. It's so overwhelming to try to find someone we'll trust with our babies! But hopefully we can test-drive some of those nannies on a part-time basis while I am at home on maternity leave, before we trust them full-time with the babies. Oh and I can't believe your ticker, 34 weeks, OMG you are almost there!
- sorry you are too dealing w/ a bad cold. Enjoy your time off w/ the in-laws, and hope they don't drive you too crazy. Will you have any help during the 5 weeks DH will be in TX? Maybe you should hint strongly to a friend that she may want to start a food calendar for you and have people sign up to bring you meals or groceries, or allow you some mental health time away from the baby
You seem so strong, juggling your mom & your pregnancy etc, you'll probably end up doing just fine, super mom!
AFM - nothing much is new. I feel good, a couple aches here & there but overall I feel lucky so far. We went to a debutante thing-y last Friday, it was a first for me and quite an experience, oh so formal
We did have a great time and it was nice to dress up some (I have pretty much been living in sweats and jeans as I work from home and don't fit in anything else...). I did dance for 45 min which was a lot of fun but completely wiped me out!! DH was cracking up to see how far from me he was on the dance floor
We have another u/s on Thu and can't wait to see our babies again. DH is off between xmas and new years and will be putting the final touches on the nursery so hopefully I'll post pictures of the nursery soon.
Happy holidays everyone!
