Hi ladies, I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing well. My job blocked all websites that aren't related to school so I haven't been able to get on. By the time I get home I'm exhausted to even get on the computer. I've been checking on my phone but no time to reply, :(. I have to say I didn't know what a babymoon was when y'all first started talking about it on here. I had to google it to see what it was, lol. Needless to say I'm jealous you'll get to go on one. With my husbands schedule it's just impossible. I bet it was a vacation much needed for you'll and it sounds like a time to reconnect with DHs. So, how is everyone doing with their nurserys? I haven't done anything to mine. I actually stopped buying stuff for a while. I'm gonna go ahead and wait to see what I get from everyone and go from there. Everything just started adding up really fast. When are you'll planning on having your baby showers, if having one? I have to say ladies, I'm so excited that we're almost about to meet our babies!! I can't wait anymore but i know they have to bake a little longer.
Afm- I had to go to the hospital again last Sunday. I had another bleeding episode. It was just a few drops but it was bright red, like Xmas red, so I had another scare of course:( They couldn't say what it was but just that the babies are doing good and are right on track. At 23 weeks baby a is 1.7 pounds and baby b is 1.4. I don't have an appointment for another week. The Dr conformed that I will be going on bedrest at 28 weeks due to how my body is adjusting to the pregnancy. My back is horrible, I just can't stay in the same position for more than 10 minutes. My pelvic bone feels like it's breaking or cracking every time I put pressure on it. I think the reason for this is because baby a's head is right at my cervix. Other than that, I
love to feel them move. They are very active and have similar sleeping patterns. It's nice to feel them all the time. Today I swear I felt baby b moving right below my breast, is it possible for him to be that high? Anyways I think I'm rambling on because I haven't vented in a while. One more thing, everyone is telling me I look small for having twins even the nurses at the hospital and it's starting to worry me, I can only eat so much in a day. So, I took this picture this past weekend, I'm 23 weeks and 5 days in this picture. Let me know what you'll think. I started off at 150, gained 15 from doing IVF, and I've gained 25 pounds since then. It was very scary seeing the scale at 190 pounds last week. According to websites I'm right on track for twins, I don't know?? I just want to make sure I put on enough pounds for the babies to grow...

Hi girls! Yes Josh and I had a wonderful time on our babymoon. We went up north and stopped in Prescott to see his mother for the night. Then the next day we traveled farther north and got to play in the "snow". Living in Arizona "snow" is really not more then a couple of inches deep but its enough to throw at people. My parents, brother, SIL, and nephew meet us there. My nephew is almost three and it was his first time seeing snow. It was fun to watch him try to make snow balls and go sledding. We then returned home and had another 3 days off to catch up on housework, yardwork, and just be lazy.

Kizmet- Hope you have a good time on your babymoon. Can't wait to hear about it when you get back! :)

dys- Sounds like you are very busy with your daughter. I worry about that when we try to have our next one. My mother already gets after me for picking up my nephew! How will I ever take care of my son when I'm expecting another child if she wont let me. LOL :roll:

2buns- Sorry I'm not sure how big your suppose to be with twins but I don't think you look "small" you can definately tell your prego and you are bigger then me. I wouldn't worry since your baby's are measuring where they are suppose to be. Sorry too that you had another bleeding episode. I know how scary those can be but I'm glad the boys are doing fine. Just think in a few more weeks you'll be on bed rest and then you can spend all your time focusing on them!

As for nurseries I think mine is also done for now. I want to wait till after my babyshower to get more stuff. We have planned my shower for the last weekend in March I think I'll be around 31 weeks. Hopefully I'll still have the energy to go out and get whatever I still need after the shower. :?

Hope- It sounds like you had a blast on your babymoon! Just think, next time you do something like that it's going to be with your precious boy. The two main things I still need to get is a breast pump and rocker, and I doubt I'll get it from anyone. Other than that I'm hoping for tons of clothes, bottles, and pampers. Everything else I need is a bunch of playing stuff.

Afm- I feel like the babies are moving everything around inside of me, lol. Well I think it finally hit me that I'm going to be a mom and in a couple of weeks there's going to be two beautiful babies in the house. What made me realize this was when my husband bought baby detergent to wash clothes so I can start washing their stuff. How weird right? What type of detergent will y'all be using, if you've thought about it? We bought dreft but I've heard alot of bad things about it. What I really wanted was All For Baby. I heard it takes out fowl smells and really takes out stains unlike Dreft. The only thing about All for baby is that it's really hard to find in HE. I think I'm going to try to order it online. I guess that's it for now, have a warm week ladies!!

Hey All - I'm BAAACK!

2Buns - I think you look fabulous! I've been copping the whole "you're a bit small to be that pregnant" thing lately, but I'm also tall and can obviously hide it pretty well. Your growth scans show your babies are just fine and that's all that really matters. My fundal height was 2.5 weeks behind at 25 weeks but at 28 weeks only one week behind and the growth ultrasound showed Bean was right on track. Sorry to hear your back is giving you trouble. I've just started getting back pain now at 29 weeks and I think that has a bit to do with having previously broken my spine/coccyx. Hopefully it all holds up for you though.

Hope - sounds like you had a great babymoon!

AFM - DH and I had a fab time away too. I was pretty sick most of the time though, which was disappointing. I just wish this morning sickness would go find someone else to pester! I've had enough! Especially now that I get reflux as well! Last OB appointment on Tuesday last week was good - nice to finally get a good visit with nothing wrong!

Hi girls just want to give you a quick update. We've had a pretty rough week. Last wednesday I went into my doctor's office to be looked at for excess mucus. Turns out I was two centimeters dilated and my bag of waters was coming out into the vagina. They sent me to the hospital and I have been on strict bedrest since. I've even had to have a catheter in because they don't want me to get up to use the restroom. They are hoping I can make it another 6 weeks without deliving so risks of blindness and brain bleeds are greatly reduced.Of course anything after that is great but our goal is to make it to 32.weeks. so far things have been fine but who knows how much longer we will go. Sorry for my lack of personals but I am using my droid phone and it's difficult to type on this. I will try to get on later this week to catch up with you guys

Teresa - I know I sent you a PM earlier but just to give you a double dose of thoughts and prayers, I'm crashing here to post too. Know that I'm thinking of you and Liam and I'm glad you're being closely monitored to keep him safe and sound for as long as possible. Keep us posted when you can!

Hope- I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully Liam won't be stubborn and try to come out early. Thank goodness for your appointment on Wednesday though. Your only job now is to rest, rest, rest. If you need anything at all, I know we can't do much, but anything, please don't hesitate to ask, even if it's to ask around for advice. I'll be checking in every day to see how you're doing. One question though, did you have any signs or any weird pains/feelings before they told you what was going on?

Afm- I've been scared to death because I started to get some type of lightning cramps. I also didn't go to work yesterday because I've been in so much pain, I just feel like my body is shutting down at this point. I had a Drs appointment that afternoon and he told me I'm now having contractions on top of the braxton hicks. He said my cervix is still closed so that was a relief. He also said he's ready to put me on bed rest as well, so whenever I'm ready just let him know. I don't know how much longer I can physically be at work. Last night the contractions were so bad they lasted from 2:30 to 4:30 in the morning. I just wish I knew when I should take them seriously because they are extremely painful. I just keep telling myself, only (hopefully) 11 more weeks.

Hope - I hope everything is going as well as can be expected. I hope you can check in just to let us know you're all OK, I've been thinking about you all weekend.

2Buns - I hope everything is OK with you too! Between the three of us, we seem to have either had our dramas or are currently going through them. Take care of yourself and if bed rest is what you need, then do it!

AFM - Absolutely nothing of any real interest to report! I'm having a bit of trouble with my blood glucose levels because the pregnancy hormones have really started to mess with my insulin requirements and I'm finding it much harder to control now than I was earlier on. I now need up to 5 times the amount of insulin I would usually require for some meals, particularly breakfast so i feel I'm all over the place. Hopefully my endo will make me feel better about this on Wednesday. I have another OB appointment on Tuesday along with my work pals throwing me a baby shower, so fingers crossed for a good week. Only 29 days of work to go! Also, my back is really starting to hurt I'm not sure if that is entirely baby related or is partially from having broken my spine a few years ago in a riding accident and the pregnancy is just putting more stress on it, either way, it hurts.

Kismet- Ouch!! I'm sure your previous injury is making your back pain worse. Hopefully it won't get too bad for you. I've had severe back pain, but I can't imagine what you're going through. I take my glucose test next week, so I kinda have no idea what your talking about, lol. I am scared though that my tests will come back negative since I have PCOS, fingers crossed.

Hope- I hope both of you are doing good. I'm sure you're exhausted or busy to even get on, but please update us on your progress, I've been praying for you and Liam.

Arm- nothing new. I think my stomach got smaller over the weekend because I got wider. The bad hip pain I was having, well I guess was for a reason. Is it possible to have stretched 2-3 inches? It sure looks like it!

2Buns - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you on the glucose test. I'm sure you'll be fine though!

Hope - Still thinking of you. Hugs.

AFM - Had my OB appointment this morning and I'm finally measuring the same as I am in weeks with the fundal height! :D So 30cm at 30 weeks. Have myself yet another symptomless UTI which equals UTI number 4 for this pregnancy. :( Not looking forward to those antibiotics. On the up side Bean has been extremely busy in there kicking and punching me! I can see my belly move with each kick now which is cute and Bean appears to have recovered from his/her stage fright and keeps kicking when DH puts his hand on my belly. I fell asleep on Saturday morning while DH had his hand on my belly and he was amazed that I could sleep through it!

Kizmet- I'm glad your bean let your husband feel him/her moving around, that's too funny. Geez you've had alot of uti's but it is common in pregnancies.

Hope- hope you're ok, keep us posted.

Afm- had a scare again today. I've been at the hospital all day and ready to go home. I don't know how people stay in here for months! I'm basically just having a ton of contractions and baby a very, very low. I feel like I have to place my hand down there when I go to the restroom. He's behind my pubic bone and making me feel very uncomfortable. Hopefully the dr let's me go home tonight:(

2buns - How are you doing? did the Dr let you go home? Is all well?

Hope - I'd love to know how you're going? Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you and little Liam are just fine, it's been a while since we've heard from you.

AFM - Not much to report!
