OMG, Nanette. Well, hooray for your two little boys! Three little boys- how fun. Plus, I *love* Tristan, seriously, would be on the top of my list except DH and I have an old mutual (female) friend Tristan and she's weird so it nixes it. What great weights, too. Nice job, mama.
Also, now I'm nervous! ... I'm really attached to my girl. I think our original USs were around the same time? (the one where they told me girl was @ 19weeks). I don't think I'm as zen of a mama as you are, I'd totally flip out for a few days if that happened to me. (it couldn't happen to both of us, right?)
What did you think of your peri? Heck yes, refuse those internals! I had to have one @ L+D the other night (still getting IV fluids) bc I was contracting and I was uber cranky about it when they coulda just rolled out the US, yk? (long and firm, btw) It wasn't my peri's call, it was the on call MW, which is dumb, IMO.
I'm hanging in there. I'm feeling a little better than last week. I'm really worried about this whole pg effect on my overall health. I mean, it is not an exaggeration to say I live on about 500-700 calories/day. This can't be good for me. I'm exhausted and I feel like crap. I just want to sleep allll the time.
OTOH, I <3 xmas, so I'm excited about that. We are wrapping up two little crocheted blankies for the twins under the tree. ugh, we have a family xmas party on Sunday and I promised my fam we'd announce names then... and I don't think we're going to be able to do it! argh.
anyone want to name obsess with me again?
Eden is for sure our girl. I'm chickening out of Vale after one semi-bad reaction from a stranger. Is that silly? I love Vale, but I don't want to give my kid a "bad" name... ugh. Thoughts? I posted a long, long thread on I'm pg a while ago, but the more thoughts the merrier...
I'm just not feeling Asher, even tho I adore it, so I figure that's not this kid's name...
Our third string name is Bram. I like Bram. Is Bram less out there than Vale?
Eden and Bram? Eden and Vale? Eden aaaanddd... ???
Actually, our second choice boy name is Lucien. But, DD has an "L" name, and that feels kinda matchy, esp since we'd call him Luca/Luke and that's reeeeaally close to her name.
gah. Somebody else do this for me!
okay, nice to check in. I concur- how is everyone else?
LOL, I think it would be super strange for it to happen to both of us lol. He was being very close legged during that first u/s, so we should have known better. As for the name thing, I'm with Liora on this one, I think Vale is super cute, and I wouldn't give a hoot about a stranger's reaction. My mother and mother-in-law don't like Tristan, but my husband and I do, and when we told them we made it a statement, not open for discussion KWIM?
babygrey - I love Vale! Don't let a stranger's comment deter you if it *feels* right in your heart. I like your other names too but you seem to have a sixth sense about Vale so I'd hate to see you back off. I love Eden and Vale - they kind of go together to me. Both a valley and eden are beautiful, secure places.
OMG Nannette!!! Boys!!! That is so exciting! I wonder if I have your girl? We can never see Asher's boy bits although the pics of Boston's are so clear. My next u/s is 12/21. I haven't had a single internal exam all my cervical check are by dildocam :).
I am so excited for Christmas. We got DD a doll and all the care giving things to go with it so she can mimic mommy when the boys come. My mom got the boys amber teething necklaces and made little embroidered pouches for them.
Haha- maybe you do have my girl dammit! lol You have to keep us updated on the u/s, can't wait to hear. My next one isn't for another month, so I'll live vicariously through you all :)
Ladies- in the last few u/s's you've had, how have the babies been positioned? I'm starting to get worried, my two have both been transverse from the very beginning, and I don't want them to turn breech. Do you think doing spinning babies this early would help anything? Webster technique? Or should I wait until my next U/S @ 28 weeks to do anything about it? Ugh. I hate this paranoia.
