Blissful- Thanks for the welcome! Yeah... I've been afraid all these weeks... at 8 weeks we told our family and the next us one of the twins had passed away... so that was a huge blow... then I told people at work at 16 weeks and got sent home four weeks later... so that explains my insecurity!!.. Love your Christmas tradition!! must have wonderful pictures of the day after!!! How are you holding up on your bed rest??? What are you doing to keep busy?? we should start the bed rest thread!!!
Jen- I'm glad your drama bean is doing great!! I'm sure she's just getting your nerves ready for childhood and teenage years to come!!!
Happy Bunny- You'll have great news on friday on your ultrasound! ... try to stay positive!! and let me tell you: you're my inspiration!! after reading how you're pg with your second... I would definitely try that... (but not sure i can after all this bed rest)... congratulations!!! and love the ornament tradition!!! great way to start a "journal" for your kids!!
Hopingforamiracle- WOW 17 weeks... I will be on your same track soon!! Glad you made it to 30 weeks!! that's what I'm hoping for too... my DR said the same thing.... (I want 38...)... They don't know why I'm contracting so much... my job did require a lot of physical activity and running/walking around nonstop for 10-12 or more hours... but even now, I get a lot of contractions... What are you able to do on your modified bed rest? They let me walk around the house, but not do housework, and I can go out to a restaurant and come back... but I don't do that much because I start contracting soon after I move around... My contractions have been painful sometimes and they scared me half to death!! Thanks for the advice on tracking food... I occasionally did it, but seem to be eating really badly... have gained almost a pound a week since they sent me home... How are you doing with your weight gain?? I'm knitting, crocheting, reading and surfing the web!! not very useful stuff but makes the day go by!... What do you usually do??
Katieb- Glad to see you!!! try to stay positive!! you WILL have your baby soon!!! and hopefully your ss will stop making your life difficult!! it's almost time!! How amazing!!!
EOE - Hope you are all having wonderful a wonderful day!!!
AFM- not much to report... subscribed to some online classes to stay entertained... buying gifts online to send to everyone on the list...
it's nicer to buy presents in person, but this will do this year!!... All the family is going to meet at my moms house which is far away... so we will be celebrating by ourselves...
As for traditions: I don't think we have any except for the fact that everyone always flies in and makes sure they are there for Christmas... so I'm taking notes from all of your traditions and will run them by DH and start our own with your help!!
hope you don't mind!!
BTW- blissful- I"m having a GIRL!! ... very excited!!!
In my DH family everyone has boys and in my family everyone has girls... so he's extra happy!!!
