I'm so tired that I can't remember if I said congrats to Lilac about the twins!? So wonderful and exciting!
Sourire, welcome!! So exciting!!!
That's so friekin' awesome
guppy, sorry to hear that headaches are giving you a run for your money. I feel your pain with "first breakfast". DH thinks I am crazy getting up, take my thyroid pill, wait 30 minutes, then eat some cottage cheese and toast, then I can go back to bed for awhile and get up later to eat another breakfast. Oh, and my allergies are kicking in right now with all the pollen. I sneeze, I wet myself. So annoying. I try to stay hydrated so I don't get a headache but then I have to pee all the time. Yep having multiples changes things.
Guppy.. Fingers crossed being ill passes soon! Hope you enjoyed the hockey :) We bought tickets for Black Sabbath months ago and now it's only a week away I'm dreading the late night... But if you can do it sick and with triplets, I am being way too much of a sook to stay home!!
Lilac.. I had a 2am breakfast every morning for the first couple of months too! (Followed by family breakfast when everyone got up..) I think it's because I get up to wee, then can't get back to sleep most of the time. So now my day usually starts around 3am, then I'm back in bed by 7pm after work.. sigh. But my house is cleaner than usual :)
Sourie.. Hey congrats!!
Sorry for anyone I missed on earlier pages - but hi everyone!! My amazing DH booked us in for a 3D scan on the 9th as part of my birthday present, so I'm totally stoked I get another peek before the anatomy scan on the 29th
violet, so excited for your twins!!! welcome to the club!
suzie, how sweet is that for the 3d ultrasound! i missed the window for one and i'm sad about it. please post your photos!!
guppy, having multiples is a WHOLE OTHER experience. i used to have to keep a box of granola bars on my night stand so i could sleep eat without having to go downstairs. and of course my dh bought the most crumbly crunchy granola bars so i'd be so noisy and messy! it's only just begun too. i eat a first and second breakfast, lunch, then two snacks, dinner, dessert, and sometimes an extra bowl of cereal or string cheese or something before bed. i have no idea where it goes. as of this week i have LOST four pounds, bringing my weight to 32 lbs gained, at 34 weeks with twins! i'm impressed you have the energy to make eggs and toast!
rcr, how is it going?
she said, how are you? still feeling uncomfortable?
happyhopeful, welcome and congrats!!
renavoo, how is life??? busy with work and babies i assume? i can't believe the twins are going to be born so soon. how many weeks were you when you had your babies?
bucket, keep us posted on the leaky valve. these things can totally reverse themselves. i'll keep you in my thoughts :)
teresa, welcome back my friend! only good things for you this time around.
blue, how is caden? i'm sure you're busy but we're waiting with baited breath!
afm, i'm at 34 weeks! bedrest is fine, the time is flying by faster than i thought it would. for some reason i'm losing weight even though i eat like a farm animal. i feel like i just eat and nap, punctuated by incessant pee breaks. last night i was worried that i wasn't feeling baby enough, and i didn't feel him at all this morning, so i called the dr. they had me come in to check on him, and he was fine. i'm so relieved! i think maybe he rolled over in a way that he's kicking his sister instead of my stomach, but it's good to have reassurance. the dr said that since i've hit 34 weeks, any time i go into labor will be fine and they will just deliver. so now i wait! it's weird to think that there is max three more weeks before they induce me. babies are coming!
Teresa - I know the feeling of all your friends being over here. I think I posted here way too much too before I got a bfp, after blue and others left the other side. No worries. We don't mind. I think that is really cool that Dr. Wang was honest about the culture being wrong for your embies.
Blue - nice to finally see you! I can't wait to hear an update!
AFM - Only ONE more day until I am officially off for the summer!!!! yay!!! I am going to stick around work for the next few weeks and work on classes for the fall semester, because otherwise I will have to return to work before school officially starts in the fall, and that is always worse than doing it now. But I am technically off as of Thursday. We are going camping for the weekend, and I hope I can manage to feel ok. I am still feeling really sick in the evenings, and I vomit most evenings. I think I may have lost weight too, since I have been vomiting all my dinner lately. Oh, and I have to go to South Africa for work this summer, so I am going to take DS with me and make a little trip out of it, and we are staying for three weeks. I am excited about that.
Congrats to the new BFPs!
I'm just popping in briefly to let you know I'm still alive. We're busy putting in a huge garden (it's something like 50 X 90 feet) still working on the remodel, and chasing my 2 almost 16 month olds. So, needless to say, I'm extremely busy. We've started working on letters with Maisie and Liam. They are catching on really quickly. They are running everywhere and so much fun. Oh, and the talking. Can't forget the talking! It's so amazing how fast they learn new words!
Here's a quick picture!
I do read along as often as I can and I'm rooting for everyone still on their journey!
Ugh... I haven't gotten a chance to get on here and now it is almost time to go to bed. Tomorrow I have a photographer coming to do newborn pics at 11am and she said it could take 2-4 hrs. I'm excited for these pics!!! Maybe tomorrow afternoon I can jump on and do an update in the afternoon depending on how things go.
Congrats to the new grads!!! So excited for the BFP's!!! And I can't wait for the new arrives to come!!!!! Things are getting easier each day and he and I are getting on the same page w/ nursing!!! After dinner is definitely more of the witching hr but we are surviving!
Kewpie - they are so cute!!! Can't believe how much they have grown.
Here is a pic for you all.... Cade's First bath at home.
Ah, blue, Caden is so cute wrapped up in his hooded towel! Absolutely adorable.
AFM, went to sleep at 7:30 p.m. last night, got awakened by a panicked senior trying to fill out a scholarship application that needed a pin number only I could give her (yeah for me being the school guidance counselor) at 9:08 p.m., it was about 80 degrees at my house, ugh, I was NOT turning on the air conditioning when I had just turned off the heat a couple days ago, and I suffered in the heat until I finally fell asleep and stayed that way until 4:45 when I just had to get up to go to the bathroom. The extra sleep was great. I feel much better this morning.
