I am so, so, so sad for her! She and her family are in my prayers.
I went for my anatomy scan today, and everything looks good. The babies are growing well, with baby A just a tad bit smaller than baby B, but no discordant growth. All parts look healthy and good. I can breathe and finally get excited!!
Did I mention that I got a minivan!!! Super cool, I know.
Adaline's Mama: glad you had a good scan! Get excited!!!
Our girls (di-di) were a little off with their growth from 20 weeks. Never more than 20%. HOwever, they are different genetic material...just like singleton sibs are different body types and sizes. Our girls, now at 2 and 4 months are about a whole pound different, the lighter one is about an inch taller, she's like her dad...tall (he's 6'3") and lean and the other is more like me, a bit more athletic/solid in her build. (I'm 5'4" and in the 130s when not preggo with twins!)
Our mono-di twins in utero are almost spot on in growths/estimated weights. They are 0.4% different! Its shocking how close they are...but with the same genetic material, we would expect them to be closer in size.
On the mini-van front: which one did you get? We are also intending to purchase one before these new ones come. However, we close on the sale of our place and the purchase of another on the 26th and so moving is coming before a new minivan right now! There's too much going on! As well, since I'm 31 weeks and beginning to feel and apprently look ginormous (people have begun asking not only when I'm due but, the actual question of, "are you due soon?!"), packing and 2 toddlers is certainly getting more challenging!
My in-laws have a honda odyssey and love it. I have driven in it many times and find it roomy, comfortable and a smooth ride.
We are planning on buying a mini-van sometime soonish too. We will probably go with a Grand Caravan because they are cheaper, have stow-n-go seats (can use the room sometimes to pick-up lumber and other home reno materials) and we have heard good things about them.
I really felt like her dietary requirements were outrageous for me. There is no way I can eat 175 grams of protein per day and have any room for anything else. I've been trying so hard to follow those guidelines and I've only gained 8 lbs at 19 weeks. I feel like reading that book scared the crap out of me and I feel like a failure - like I must be starving by babies.
I think there's a lot of good advice in there, but I don't like her tone and I wish there were more informational books with dietary guidelines so that I had something to compare it to.
Mine too! My parents are physical therapists and found that it was my SI joint. They gave me a belt to wear and when I wear it, it really helps.
