Gina- How exciting to start a "2011/2012 parents after treatment" thread for us! Crazy how many of us are having babies already! July is going to be a busy month! Your boys are SOOOOO cute! I hope mine are at least HALF as cute!
Ryann- So sorry that baby girl scared you like that, but SOOOO happy she's okay! Almost 32 weeks - you are doing so well! I hope bed rest isn't driving you too crazy!
nwquiz - actually, waiting for a single u/s at 20 weeks is the norm in a healthy, singleton pregnancy. We IVFers are just really spoiled with lots and lots of early u/s! Everyone hates when they switch to their OB and stop getting the weekly u/s! I now have a 3 weeks break between u/s and it's killing me!
Lou - UGH. I'm sorry people are being obnoxious about your shower. My birthday is smack-dab in the middle of the summer, and my mom always organized a party for right before school started, since people are always sooooo flaky about plans in the summer time.
Amanda - FULL TERM! That is so exciting! I'm sure you are feeling uncomfortable, but it's crazy to think that she'll be here in less than 2 weeks!
Kat - 12 weeks! What a great milestone!
Kelley - you look great! Good luck on your glucose test!
Stephanie - SOOOOO CUTE! They are sooo adorable! I'm sure life is crazy at the moment - but enjoy it!
SD - my DH knows that if he takes something from the kitchen without asking (especially FINISHING something!), he risks the wrath of the pregnant wife - which is not to be messed with!
(luckily we have a 24-hour mart just around the corner, so he can 'apologize' with replacements!)
Barbara -- still pregnant?
Rio - you look great! (just curious -- where do you live that you are still wearing LONG sleeved shirts?
Karin - sorry you had a L&D scare - but 34 weeks is great for twins - they'll be fine whenever they are born. I like the idea of "M&M" twins names!
Kaylie - Thursday! Yay! That's so exciting! Do you know if the baby is a boy or a girl - or are you waiting until Thursday?
Margi - bedrest until at least July 26th? That's hard. I'm sorry. But just think - it's only a few months - and then the twins will keep you so busy you'll never get to rest again!
AFM - I started feeling movement! YAY! What a huge huge huge relief. Not all the time, but definite pokes/jabs when I lie down at night, and sometimes during the day. The "wiggle worms" seem to be wiggling away! Q for other twin moms --- how do you tell who is who? I think I have to wait until further along. I don't even know where they are lying for now!
I'm coming up to the point in my pregnancy when I lost my last twins. I'm 20w5d today.... I'm thinking that last time, I had 1 more week until things went to hell ( water broke at 21w6d) and I had *NO* idea I had only a week left being pregnant.... I'm just trying to relax and get through the next few weeks. I'm super excited for my anatomy scan next Thursday (7/7) - and that 22+wk mark!
on a side note (just because it's really really REALLY annoying me!) - we hosted a dinner party on Friday night. While cleaning up, I broke my FAVORITE serving dish.... and cut my finger on the glass while cleaning it up! Now my right pinkie finger is all wrapped up with a giant bandage...
