Hi all - I'm back home and have some free time so I figured I would do a quick update.
Bodie - The girls are adorable and look so peaceful!!! I love their names! Sounds like all in all things went fairly smoothly and quickly in the hospital - I really hope for something similar!
Kerpupples - congrats on passing your 3 hour test and on deciding on names! I really like the name Audrey! I work from home and I really do think it has helped me keep these babies cookin' longer - most of the time I'm lounging with my feet up and my laptop next to me.
Annashope - yay for 2nd trimester and for baby BOY!! Take it easy on your back - although I know you probably don't have too much of a choice when Paul is only 10 months old! Is he close to walking? When is the next time you go back to the doctor?
We - Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. I agree with you on the exhaustion these days! Wow, you can definitley tell there are 2 in there! People these days keep looking at me like I should be in the hospital. I've heard the 'you look like you're about to pop' comment at least 5 times in the last week
Tess - glad to hear you are almost to 16 weeks so you can have confirmation that your bean is perfectly healthy and some wonderful news to share with your family!
Jen - You are ALMOST there - he will be here before you know it! I've been trying to avoid going on official leave yet for fear of boredom. I wouldn't mind it for a few days but am really want to avoid a few weeks of leave before the babies arrive.
AFM - Things are going pretty well this week - I'm feeling MUCH better with the heat and humidity down compared to last week! Still very tired and constantly low energy. I got to spend some time in the hospital last week with my sister while she was having her baby. The nurses were all confused and thinking I was the patient
Once they got the full story they were trying to take care of me too even though I wasn't their patient - they were so sweet! I hope my nurses are as nice as they were!! My new niece is adorable - she is a good sleeper and a good eater so far! Unfortunately my sister's epidural got screwed up - they had to do it 3 times to get it right so she has had a lot of pain and follow up procedures to fix that. But both baby and mama are now home and doing well. I wish I lived closer so I could see them all of the time but I needed to get back to my own house and get things in order before my babies arrive! I went to the dr this am and there were no major issues - my blood pressure is a bit elevated compared to where it normally is so they want to keep an eye on it. I go back on Monday for an u/s. My goal has been to have July babies so I am almost there!!
