Tammy- I think it is great that you are still nursing! I understand what you are saying about it only taking five minutes to calm them down. They are little for such a short time in their lives and there are so many benefits to both you and the girls to continue! Your story about them "escaping" brought back memories. Have you totally childproofed your house so you can relax? I know I did because I just couldn't keep up with the two of them.
jen-are you sleeping any better? I remember when I found out I was having twins it was like learning that I was pregnant all over again. We called all our friends and family to tell them. How is your Dr. search going?
princess-how are you doing? Youv'e made it through the first month!! I forgot if you told us but are your boys identical?
Theo's mom-how are you? Any luck talking with the dr? Are you getting use to the idea of being a mom of twins?
gogi-yes, at around 36 weeks I had achy hips and lower back. I also had a hard time getting up out of bed (another reason for the recliner
). I still feel that being a bit uncomfortable at the end was much better than having babies that were premature and that needed to be in the hospital. I'm guessing you feel the same. I hope you are able to get some rest now. You are so close and I am so excited for you! I know that you will be thinking of other things other than us when you go in to labor, however it would be really fun to know when you do! BTW- is it hard to reach the keyboard with your beautiful, big belly out in front? You are amazing gogi and I bet you babes will be over 5 pounds each! All you hard work is going to pay off!!!
My dd's are going to be five on Wednesday. I always think back to their births around their birthday times. It's such an amazing thing to grow, nuture, and sustain two babies at once! Giving birth to two is a truly awesome experience and I am still filled with intense love and awe when I look back to that day!! I have such a grateful heart to all the people who supported me in having the births of my choice! I hope some day that there will be more options in all areas of the US for women who are pregnant with twins. I am confident that some day it will be so! ~Jill
