Me too - I have had that shortness of breath feeling throughout, but it was most noticeable in the 1st tri and now over the past few weeks (early 3rd tri). It can be related to exertion if I am really running around, but mostly it's not, it's random. And now, nearly constant. It is really unpleasant - sometimes I'm almost gagging trying to get enough air in. Adorkable, my doctor told me the same thing - it's because of rapidly expanding blood volume, which happens even...
Eagerly reading along!   You pretty much have everything covered that's on our need-to-get list. We don't have that many chairs so we're planning to invest in those wooden high chairs that convert to toddler/kid chairs. We need another baby bucket. Our baby bathub busted so we need a new one. More cloth dipes. Then a few nice-to-haves like those bundle-me's for the car seats, another puddle pad, and a sheepskin. I'd like to get a structured carrier that can hold a...
Thank you so much everyone for all the info and continued encouragement! adorkable, even more points for our top contender - I didn't even think of the advantage of just rolling it up to a cafe table/park bench and feeding them in it, that is brilliant. I'll PM you but thank you so much for the offer, it is so kind! Now you've got me contemplating a bassinet. (My mom is always saying she doesn't understand why US strollers rarely have them...)  rblakley, thanks for the...
I thought DS was going to be a chill baby because I didn't feel vigorous movement from him. I mentioned this once to the u/s tech and she laughed at me! She was like, Yeah, well, he is very active, you just can't feel it because you have an anterior placenta. Whoops! She was pretty much right. DS is not super active as kiddos go and does like to sit and concentrate on tasks he's into, but he does go-go-go all day. Kid does not stop (or nap - he gave up his nap verrrry...
Renavoo, no fair not giving us more amazing twin photos to swoon over. What, are you busy or something?  Totally kidding, but anytime you have a second I would love to hear how YOU are doing!   Monkey, I seriously cannot believe you are so close. I'm just so happy to hear that everything seems right on for the birth experience you want, swelling notwithstanding. Let me tell you, that's great that you're starting to efface and dilate because I was pointed to...
Ooh, "thank you for your input, but we've made our final decision on this" - that is awesome! Totally stealing that! Thanks OakTree.
Repeat "the discussion is closed" or whatever phrase you like every single time she mentions it. It's hard, I know. I am having a similar issue with one family member, who I think really wants to have an official decision AND insists on having lots of input. Well, we don't do official decisions until after the baby is born, so it's not going to happen. So I just say "We'll see/we'll see when they are born" ad nauseum. It still drives me crazy, but it seems to be...
My first thought was, such beautiful twins. I wish I could be more helpful - I can only imagine what you are going through. I think your idea to get in with a specialist ASAP is right on. Even if it's true that you may not be able to know for 2 weeks+, it is absolutely worth it to try to get a more detailed scan in the meantime. I'm glad you've gotten so many good suggestions already from people more knowledgeable than me. Please keep us posted and we'll keep the good...
Adaline's Mama - are you kidding? That was super helpful! I can't find that Baby Trend jogger to try out in person anywhere, so I am really glad to have that input. I was sort of getting a "too good to be true" vibe about it. Also, according to the doctorate I have recently completed about twin strollers (seems you have the same degree!), the consensus seems to be the Baby Trend customer service is abysmal. And definitely, that is what my gut was telling me about the top...
Like everyone else, we're looking for a super awesome twin stroller that won't break the bank. What do I mean by "super awesome"? Okay, you know the drill. It wheels easily on all sorts of terrain, fits through doors, can be easily folded up and unfolded, can handle newborns/infants, will last us through age 4, does not require any kind of second stroller purchase, and costs less than our mortgage payment. Does not exist. I know. One nonnegotiable for sure is nonplastic...
