Hello Ladies! I would love to join this group! I love seeing all of the gorgeous baby pictures!
I am currently 29 weeks and 2 days with boy/girl twins. I had some minor bleeding at the beginning of the pregnancy, but since then everything has gone fairly smoothly. At my 26 week check, my cervix was still 3.9 cm, but with pressure it would funnel and shorten to 2.8 cm. The little boy's head is right on my cervix. So now I'm only allowed to work half days, then I come home and lie down. I have borderline gestational diabetes, so I started the GD diet last week...not so fun, but whatever it takes to make these babies healthy! My next appointment is in a week, so we'll see how everything looks then! Right now my boy is vertex, and the girl is breech. I really don't want to have a vaginal delivery followed by a c-section to get the girl out. Right now that's one of my biggest fears. I can't imagine dealing with pain in both places
I really appreciate all of the advice. As this point we are planning on using the Snap N Go and the double Bob. We have 2 cribs, but we're hoping they will want to share a crib at first...we'll see. We finally had all of our furniture delivered last week
I have 2 showers this week, and we plan on buying anything else that we need next week. I'm hoping to have most everything ready by 31 weeks...
Right now my biggest stress is child care. We looked at daycares when I was 8 weeks pregnant, and we have been on waitlists since then. It looks like the earliest they'll get in is September (almost a year on the wait list
). I have to go back to work at the end of May. Now we're wondering about a nanny. Does anyone have nanny experience? We have no idea how much a full time nanny would cost. I would love to get any input. Thanks ladies, and thanks Margi for starting this thread! I'm sure it will be very helpful for all of us!
