Hi ladies! I'm sorry I've been MIA. I don't think I've even had a chance to post on the combined group yet. We have been so busy with appointments trying to get started on the house remodeling. I had to catch up on my reading. It's so nice to go to one board and see all the familiar familiar faces.
Lost......I'm so sorry to hear what happened. Lots of prayers for you and DH.
Stephanie.....So sorry to hear about your friend. I can't even imagine.
Ryann......Congrats on ONE of EACH!
Anna.....Cute pic of you and your sis.
Klinger.....I have thought about cloth diapers, but not sure if I'm up for the task with two. My brother and SIL used cloth for their little girl and said it was easy. I have thought of trying it and using disposables when I'm in a pinch. Good for you for thinking of the enviroment. Sorry to hear about your eczema. That has to be terrible. Hoping you get relief soon!
Lou.....my dear friend......it's so great to see you on this board. Enjoy Bon Jovi! I'm sooooo jealous!
Leorira.....Relax.....you're pregnant! Your u/s is going to be great!
JustlikeHannah......Judah is too cute!
AFM......We're trying to get going on some of the remodeling on our kitchen and family room. Plus paint the entire inside/outside of the house. We've been busy with appt for estimates and it's a nightmare. Some of the estimates are crazy. My in-laws are coming to visit too, which is causing us to speed up the guest room. They're coming March 31, so I had to have two people come yesterday for window treatment quotes and pressure them to have it done in time.
I had an OB appt yesterday. She said that our boys look great. (She does u/s everytime) I am going to visit my family in WV for spring break. I asked her if it was okay to travel. She said that it was okay, that she doesn't let her twin mamas to travel past 25 wks. I will be 24 wks when i leave and 25 the day I get back. She said to wear support hose, hydrate and move around. My SIL and MIL keep saying....you shouldn't go and risk the babies. So annoying. I wouldn't do anything to risk these babies. If my OB said no...I wouldn't go. I haven't seen my family since last August and who knows how long it will be before I can go again with 2 babies. I use to go visit a couple times a year when I lived in ATL , now it's down to 1 or 2. I have 2 OB appt and 1 or 2 appt with the U/S place. I wish I could go now, the problem with that is, DD has school and she missed a wk when we went to Hawaii. If for any reason there was an issue, I would cancel the trip. What do you ladies think? Any advice?
I wanted to ask about weight gain. How much have you ladies gained? What do you think is normal for twins? I've gained about 10lbs...I guess. I'm not sure of the exact number when i got pregnant because I never really cared. I just bought my first home weight scale last week. My belly has grown alot in the past week. My OB said it wasn't big at all for twins. I feel pretty good though. My sleep is starting to really suck. I wake up alot. On the plus side, I think that maybe I'm starting to feel some movement. I started to feel like a swish here and there. So exciting!
Have a great day!
