I'm so very sorry for your loss. Holding you in the Light.
Hi, all...I'm Abbey. I'm due in early August with my fourth baby. We had a loss in October, so I'm feeling cautious but hopeful. I'm a writer, a runner and SAHM to my 5 yo son and 2 yo twin daughters. We are in our 1st year of homeschooling. Nice to meet you all!
I'm also having #4. I have a 5 yo and 2 yo twins. When I told my mom, she said, "I just don't know why anyone would want to DO that." :-) Friends have been supportive, so that's nice!
I'm incredibly sad to have to leave this group before getting to know you all. We lost our little one today (before I even had very long to dream about him or her). Best to each of you on your journeys- you'll be in my thoughts.
@ResearchParent lol! That is awesome.
I haven't called them yet. Usually my midwives like to see people around 8 weeks for a first visit and then start regular visits around 12 weeks. Since I have a history of multiples, though, I suspect they will want me to come earlier "just to check" with an ultrasound, At this point, if it is twins, I don't feel ready to know. :-)
Oh, all of my pants feel too tight, too! I want to live in pajama bottoms right now. No solutions, but I feel your pain. :-)
I'm sorry you're dealing with this...the info on it when you Google can be scary. I had multiple SCH when I was pregnant with my twins. (I had some bleeding and thought I was miscarrying, which is why they did the u/s that discovered it was twins.) It was around 7-8 weeks, and it resolved on its own. Everything turned out just fine. My girls are two years old now- nothing bad happened from the SCH. Good luck- I'll be thinking of you!
I would love to know how to make homemade ginger ale. I'm only a teeny bit nauseous yet, but I had it pretty severely with my other pregnancies...I feel like I should prepare for the worst. :-) As optimistically as possible, of course!
With my first (singleton), I ran (slowly!) into middle of 2nd tri. With the twins, I changed to walking by 8 weeks (and ended up on bed rest at 22 weeks...not related to running, but then I couldn't do anything). I'm so hoping for a less remarkable journey this time. I've heard you can keep going at the level of training you were doing before becoming pregnant. Since my longest run is this weekend, I should be ok...I hope.
