Katie- Congratulations on baby Olivia! She is absolutely beautiful! How has the transition from 1 child to 2 been?
ttcnb- Did I read that right...V-Day? Wow! That's just a few days away & what a special present! I will be thinking of you!
sunshine12- Great to hear from you! How are you feeling?
kbillsy- Oh you poor thing...hope you feel better soon! I remember the headaches...ugh, they are the worst! But, they should be subsiding soon, hopefully! I'll talk to my SIL, who has 8-year old triplet boys & ask her for suggestions for you. I know they didn't have a stroller for triplets...too big & pricey. They had a double one & single one. She had 2 infant carriers. When she's go to to the store, she'd put 1 on her back, 1 on her front, & leave 1 in a car seat & put it in the cart. She got stares big-time, lol! But, it was the only way she could manage everything. I know she had bouncy seats & swings, but I don't remember how many of each. I will find out for you.
Lydia- If I remember correctly, my RE had me stop progesterone when I was 10 weeks b/c it was right around the time I graduated to an OB. How are you doing?
Wishingandhoping- How are you holding up?
Mora- How's Grady doing? You must be over the moon w/ your 2 little men.
Alisa- Wow, Evie is over a month already?! Where does the time go?
lomgtimerivf- Sorry, you're still in bed, but I love your positive attitude!
anton- Oh thank you sweetie!
Felicia- Love the bump! Samuel is a great name & I love that it has history! So sweet about how DH reacted to finding out it's a boy. Wow...a year off! That will be so nice to spend some time w/ your family in the Virgin Islands! Read the AFM section below about anemia.
Sunshine1576- Thank you so much! We are extremely happy & I know you & your DH will be there really soon!
Maria- I'm so happy to have you officially over here! I added you to the list. How are you feeling?
AFM- So, I had an u/s on Tuesday. They are both measuring 2lbs 1oz. I also had my 1 hour GD test, which I passed. However, I was told I'm slighty anemic, which is expected w/ twins. So, now they have me on iron pills. I just sent DH out to get plum juice, lol! My mom, who works at Marshalls, got us a Bright Starts pack-n-pay for $45! We originally had a Gracco pack-n-play for twins on the registry, but my mom made a good point. What if 1 is crying & the other wants to sleep? She thought it would make more sense to get 2 separate ones. Unfortunately, there was only 1 in her store. So, we put another 1 on the registry & took off the Gracco double 1 & it was already purchased by my friend's mom. Amazon is 1 of my registries & when someone makes a purchase, it shows the name of the person, so I can see it. It does that so it's easier to put a thank-you list together. So anyways, we now have 1 pack-n-play set up in our house & another 1 that I'll get at the shower. I also have a story about the car seats. We decided to go w/ the Baby Trend double snap-n-go & the Baby Trend Navigator Double Jogger Stroller (Sonic, which is the model). For the car seats, we decided to go w/ the same brand...Baby Trend Flex Loc (also in Sonic) to match everything. Well, my cousin's wife calls me last night to tell me that BRU (my other registry) has it listed as out of stock for shipping & unavailable at any stores. So, I checked if Amazon had them & it said out of stock also. I did a search for recalls & came up w/ nothing. I ended up calling BRU & was told that the Sonic model was being discontinued. It wouldn't be a big deal if someone hadn't already bought the Sonic Double Stroller (I saw on my BRU registry that it was already bought). Anyways, I did a major search by calling different BRUs & finally ended up finding them at a BRU about 40 minutes away. My dad ended up getting them for us b/c he was actually close that area on his way home from work. So, we now have the car seats! I'm getting so excited for my good friend's shower tomorrow! She's exactly 5 weeks ahead of me! Our babies are going to be BFFs, lol! My shower is 3 weeks from tomorrow...wow!!! Then, the following weekend after my shower, we'll be going to IKEA for all the nursery furniture & decorations! It's getting close & I'm feeling excited, anxious, nervous, happy! Tonight, DH & I are going to see The Vow for our V-Day date & maybe getting something to eat.
