Gina - Your boys are BEAUTIFUL!!! Isn't it so funny to watch them interact? I'm so happy to hear your bleed is shrinking, that's such a relief!
Karin - I'm with you on the laziest person on the planet feeling! I've just short of begged my OB to give me the go ahead to at least walk on a treadmill for an hour a few days a week, but thanks to the SCHs, she said absolutely not.
Especially with twins, I don't want my body to fall apart. It's scary to think of the amount of time I will need to spend in the gym after the boys are born, but won't have the time because I'm going to have two new babies...
Ryann - Yay for no puking and being able to eat again!!! What kinds of food are you craving? I actually did go in to work last night. We're down by the University of Illinois, so we only got a massive sleeting and about 4 inches of snow. Damn snow stayed just west of us.
By the time I went in, major streets were mostly clear. Your bump is ADORABLE!!!
Wanababy - Agreed, HUGE bump from the top view, just big from the profile view. LOVE the bump pic!!!
afm - I had a bit of a scare that started Tuesday morning and lasted through last night. Of course, with the crappy weather, my OB's office was closed and I had to wing it over the phone with a Patient Advisory nurse and the on call OB. Basically, I started having Braxton-Hicks and LOTS of discomfort on Tuesday, so I put myself on moderate bed rest and really pushed the water, which definitely helped. Yesterday morning was even worse. The pressure was bad enough to wake me up repeatedly in the morning. It didn't get any better with the self prescribed bed rest and extra water. My lower abdomen was actually getting tight and hard. I was thisclose to going to the ER... Thank goodness everything started feeling better over the course of the evening and this morning I feel fine.
I called my OB's office today and one of her nurses told me that I did exactly what they would've suggested and to be sure to keep track of how many I have in an hour. She also said that though it may sound silly, she feels the storm that moved through may have had something to do with it, too!
Something about the barometric pressure having an effect on my uterus. She said she saw LOTS of examples of this working in Labor and Delivery for years and years. I figure she may have a point, especially since barometric pressure from thunderstorms gives me horrible headaches.
I was borderline panicking yesterday, but tried my hardest to stay calm. I read getting worked up causes hormones to react and can make things worse. I'm so relieved all is fine. WHEW!
