Hi Kitty_mom - Wow, I can't believe you're done with work already, but it sounds like your doctor wants to keep you and those babies safe and healthy.
I was reading your post to my husband and I told him that you're my *pregnancy twin* since we're both 36 yo who went though IVF and are carrying boy-girl twins due on Valentines Day! He thinks it's so amazing to find someone in such an exact situation.
I plan on working as long as I can, however I travel quite a bit for work. I drove to Madison, WI a couple of weeks ago which takes me about 2.5 hours each way without traffic, but I was so uncomfortable that I decided that I would not be doing any more driving trips longer than 2 hours and for those farther destinations I will fly. I plan on flying through the end of the year unless my OB advises against it. However, I've opted not to go to a conference in Vancouver this week. Between the flight and the 15 hour days I would have it's just too much. I am trying to find alternatives so some of my meetings have been amenable to phone calls, webcasts, and even Skype! I love modern technology. My manager and I worked out a plan that she can give me some projects that I can complete from home beginning in Dec and through Jan.
Doing lots of things to get ready for the babies! The Container Store had their Elfa shelf sale so we put together their closet this weekend. I've attached pictures.
We also had a friend give us 2 brand new cribs including organic sheets and pillows
So their room is slowly coming together! And during a work meeting last week, my colleagues threw me a surprise babies shower and I got *baby pharmacy* items, some towels and booties, but the biggest gift was they all pitched in and gave us a gift check which is the exact amount of the double stroller we've been eyeing! We couldn't believe it!
So, it's really happenening! And I can't believe how quickly time is flying - it's the end of our 2nd trimester! I hope everyone is doing well and getting rest!
