I have felt that scratchy-in-pelvis sensation (but more with my first pregnancy, a singleton.)
And jencat, I think traveling at that time probably will be fine. I was big but not too uncomfortable yet (little did I know!) and I think that would have been a good time for travel. I've been skittish about the issue of travel this pregnancy, though. Not wanting to be away from home, never sure "what to expect" or how much of a factor pre-term labor, etc. might be (so how could I plan very far ahead?)
I feel much more settled and confident now than I did earlier....I think a big part of it was just the upheaval of finding out about the twins and then grappling with the extra issues of the shared placenta and some implications for MZ pairs. The aftershocks were kind of lingering for awhile. Plus, I was sick sick sick and all looked bleak when I was vomitting so much...
I am 27w,5d and I've kind of been slumping on the food and the weight gain, though I think I'm coming out of my funk today. (I'm actually a bit excited about the prospect of heading to the grocery store, and cooking, again. After a slump of a few days.) I've gained about 33 lbs so far. I am thrilled with all weight gain, but it's starting to seem a bit daunting to imagine something like 56 pounds, overall, finding a way to fit on my body.
Both boys are breech now, which bums me out but I am believing that there's still time. I did a lot of communicating with twin B, but I think I told him too many times (simplifying the visualization for me) to "put his head by his brother's head" and instead of flipping, he convinced twin A to turn around. But their heads are together, now.
I am feeling okay but there's a lot of discomfort at the top of my abdomen. Heads don't belong there, and when they press it's a searing pain.
