How are all my PG twin momma buddies?? - Page 5

Karen are you getting enough water and protein? I get really crampy and uncomfortable when I get less than a gallon a day (uh, like today That could also explain why your fluid is a bit low. I know it's hard, but I feel so much better when I get it done that it's completely worth the hassle.

The PUPPs rash is on my arms, belly, legs, back and is really a nightmare, flat out. The OB prescribed some cream (which isn't really helping) and an antihistamine, which I took and now feel tired, so I'm hoping for some decent sleep tonight - guess I should go now during this window of opportunity!

I hope everyone else is doing well. If you don't need labor vibes yet, send some this way, please
You go girl! How awesome!!
Best of luck to you .... and gentle labor wishes!!

I feel like a horse most days, since I drink so much!!!

Thanks for the replies. Ever since I found out the fluid was low I have been drinking a ton of water hoping that it helps. I pee every 20 minutes it seems. Not to mention having to hold it for the ultrasound! I keep trying to fit more in though. And I do try to keep my protein intake up as well. I'll keep on with that course as well as trying to take it easy and just really hope that the fluid level increases or at least remains steady. I think the OB is mostly concerned with baby A's slow down in growth and wondering if the difference between the babies will increase. I guess that's why we'll be checking things weekly. But he does agree with keeping me pregnant as long as possible. I just don't like the not knowing and having every possible scenario running through my head.

Well, since I've been going crazy for a few weeks now, I may as well start to celebrate it:
41 weeks today!

(oh please oh please babies, come out soon! )

I'm cranky and uncomfortable. My hip just started hurting, and my sciatic nerve pain is back. It's shooting down my butt cheek and leg. The babies are squirming all the time and sometimes it makes me a little queasy feeling them squirm. Baby B keeps dancing on my cervix, or poking it, or scratching it, or whatever she is doing in there. It's like a pap exam from the inside! I can't get comfy in any chairs and my legs are too fat to cross now. LOL!

I just needed to vent. My dh is kinda tired of hearing it - and though the daddies of these babies are great guys, I don't feel like I can complain much to them.

I'm right there with you. I am REALLY miserable the past two days. Both babies flipped back to head down and now I feel like I've got a bowling ball shoved in my vagina. Good news and certainly nothing to complain about but mighty uncomfortable. My hands and fingers are numb all the time now, my feet look like something a Hobbit would find attractive, my legs are swollen now too, I can't sleep well and turning over/getting up to pee is nearly impossible......gosh, I could go on! I have THREE WEEKS of this left. I just want them to come out now. :
