Belly, i'm soooo jealous! On a good day, our babies get about 5 hours of sleep. Of course, with my pumping, that means I get about 3.5-4 hours because I often can't go back to sleep after I pump. Case in point... haha so much for sleeping while they do! Additionally, my darling boy grunts like a truck driver in his sleep. It makes for a lot of amusement during the day but a little frustration during the night. I don't care though...I check in on him and just smile anyway, regardless of what time of the day it is. We had to move the babies into their nursery because they outgrew staying in the same crib. I almost cried at that because it just means that they are growing bigger. Can't they stay small forever? Ooooh soccer is great! Will you be able to go see some games? I think that would be fun!
Blue, I gave in to my lunch meat cravings (I love boar's head ham) and just warmed it up. It didn't taste as good to me but hey, it satisfied a craving! haha I too am so excited to hear every detail about your visits. By the way, I had the NT scan too. I think everyone gets it and they use that plus blood tests to give you the risk of your baby having a genetic issue. Like Belly, I didn't really know what i would do with the results...there was no way I was going to abort the baby so it was more of a fact finding thing, I guess. Plus, I just wanted to see the babies.
Rcr, how are you doing?? I can't wait until November/december! Have you been keeping in touch with your doctor? Did you get your schedule yet?
Vegan, ugh to more nausea!! Yah to being close to the end though!!! :o) I can't believe the time is coming up so fast!!
Tear, how are you feeling?
Hi to everyone else! I'm thinking of you all!
AFM, well i go back to work on Tuesday. Yesterday, I received an email telling me that i was most likely going to be put on a presentation- this means late nights. I went ballistic. Not only am i not performing to the best of my abilities because of lack of sleep but most importantly, I am not going to go back to work and not see my babies for days on end. I was going to give in my notice right then. Luckily, I wrote to one of my coworkers and she talked me down the ledge. I called my (new) manager and told her that I just can't work those long hours this early back and I'll be completely willing to come home and work from home when needed but I need to be home. I also told her that I intend to work from home one day a week. She took it well. My manager used to be this workaholic but now that she has a boyfriend who she adores and loves to travel with, she's much more about life work balance. I know her bf and personally, I just want to thank him a million times over.
I have to go dairy free, I think, for my baby because she's continuing to have blood in her stool. I've already cut out the obvious sources but there must be other things I'm eating. Right now, we're really testing by just giving her hypoallergenic formula and Colin gets all my milk. Anyone have any experience with that and have suggestions about what to do?
Thanks ladies! Babies are stirring! Check in later!
