lyndi - I'm diabetic and 3 things will help a ton with keeping sugars down.  Limit carbs (even "healthy carbs" like peas and such), eat carbs with fiber when you do eat it (slows the absorption of sugar in the blood) Think whole grains! and walk if you are allowed to after meals. Walking will lower your blood sugar.  I think I remember you being on bedrest?  If so, it's quite a bit harder to keep sugars in check, but doable.

Lyndi, ugh to having GD. and on top of the pinworms! i hope everything gets taken care of. 

 

Belly, I'm with you...we seem to consistently know what AFM refers to, even if the words might differ slightly. Does it really matter whether the A stands for "as" or "and", in the grand scheme of things? orngbiggrin.gif Can't wait to hear about your appointment on Thursday!

 

Kristal, yah to getting to the half way point! But ugh to the tooth pulling. I'm excited to reach 20 weeks on Sunday.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Oh, an AFM from me (this is for you Blue!).

 

Nothing doing right now. haha. So not exciting but I'd rather be status quo than worried! I'm just waiting for my 20 week anatomy scan (happening on Friday) and hoping that things go well. I'm trying to cut down sugar and failing miserably because i love sugar so much. ;o) (Kewpie, great suggestions! I'm happy to say that I walk a lot but i think not enough- I'm hoping to cut sugar intake down enough so that i don't have to worry about GD in the future)

 

And, I feel the little twins moving inside me (i still it find nothing short of extraordinary that two little beings are growing inside me). I just want them to give me a few solid (consistent) kicks so i can be sure that it's them that's making all the weird rumblings. But you ladies made me feel better when you mentioned that i'm probably feeling them move :o)

 

I do have to take belly shots too. I was walking by a coworker's office yesterday and he looked at me and he commented that i'm getting big, to which I replied, it's only the beginning. 

 

Finally, I love how DH kisses my stomach every night and says hello and "Daddy loves you" to the twins. I think we've settled on the names Colin and Sienna (although the girl's name may still be up in the air but we've been looking and we just haven't found anything else we like as much!). So it's really heart warming when he calls them by their names. 

 

That's it! hope everyone is doing well!

rena - I LOVE the names you've chosen!  LOVE!  I had a hard time deciding in the beginning if what I was feeling was actually the babies or just muscle spasms or gas.  It got confirmed at an u/s that I was feeling them.  I felt it and a split second later I saw the movement on the screen.  It IS awesome.  I do miss feeling them sometimes.  It was kind of like we had our own little secret connection that no one else had.

Lyndi - Oh my!!! You poor thing!  I can't even imagine being uncomfortable from being pregnant in general and then adding the pin worms on top of it all!  I sure hope you find a simple treatment.  Does the rest of your family have them too?  Good luck and I wish i had a solution for you.

 

Renavoo - thanks for the update!!!!  Just was making sure all is well.  Love your comment about your DH. How sweet!!!  Also, love the names.  Are you telling people other than us on here?  We kept our boys names a secret but would always call them by name when it was just the two of us or i would say Dylan or Evan just kicked me. Belly pic???

 

Kewpie - how is everything going with you and your babes?  So good to hear the report about Liam!!  Hope all continues to go well.

 

Keria - your babies are beautiful!!!  Glad your little girl is home with you all now.  Hope things are going well and you are getting some sleep at some point in time.

 

Bungalow - how are you doing?  Hope all is going well with you and your babes too!!!!  How many weeks are you now?

 

Belly - hope you get many more days w/o the m/s.  I think you are over-due.  Loved the belly pic and can't wait to see more.

 

Deborah - that will be a great car for your winters and hauling all of the twins stuff around for sure.  YOu can never have enough room when you have two babies.

 

Laggie - so good to see your name pop up again.  Hope you are well.  hug2.gif

 

 

Just going from the top of my head and this page above, so I hope i didn't forget anyone.


After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Blue- That is very true! We actually measured a double stroller before we went to check out cars. There is no question it will fit, plus some other items. There are something like 3 levels of storage in the trunk. One very large area (the one you can see from outside), underneath that: compartments (would work great for toys, etc.) and below that stores the spae tire. Pretty good!

Thanks, ladies! We love the names too. Colin was especially easy for us to agree on. I'm not sure why although DH is English so it seems fitting. And i love the name (not to mention Colin Firth) haha

 

Blue, we've told our closest friends about the names. I also told my mom because I wanted my mom to start thinking about Chinese names that match the english names (typically, those would become their middle names) I haven't decided whether we're going to legalize their chinese names or just have those as our "back pocket" kind of things. However, DH and i want to be sure that they also keep involved with their Chinese sides so I need to look for a chinese school where they can learn some Mandarin. DH loves that idea because then he has someone to practice with. He learned Chinese after we started dating but in typical American born Chinese fashion, my chinese is a bit elementary and i'm more comfortable speaking in English. Therefore, the twins learning Chinese would help us both with our skills :o)

 

Kewpie, how are you doing? How are the twins? We'd love an update! I can't wait to use your guidance :o) I also definitely love the little movements (even if I'm not positive they come from the babies). But it definitely makes me feel closer. I'm excited for them to get bigger so DH can feel them too!

 

Keria, update us when you can too.

 

Laggie, i hope you're feeling better!

 

RCR and Blue, big hugs!! 

 

Deborah, yah to a new car! 

 

Ugh, I'm seriously disturbed, by the way. I went on Facebook and someone posted an image of an aborted baby (or maybe it was a baby that was miscarried...I don't know since the caption was in spanish but i know her message was one about anti abortion). It was a friend of my SILs but she requested to be my friend after I photographed my SIL's baby shower. Anyway, that was NOT something i wanted to see when I first woke up (if ever, by the way, especially when pregnant). Another strike against Facebook. I've now blocked her posts. I really should start to clean my Facebook friends list. *shaking head*

Hey Lyndi, how are you feeling? I just noticed in my previous post that I asked Laggie that, not you!! It was meant for you. I hope you have the pinwheel thing under control and that your GD isn't taking too much of a toll on you. I totally get the message with the image too and i'm completely with you about the searches. I used to come across those images a lot when I searched for information. That's why I don't search for info about things like that anymore. So it was so unexpected to get something about it on Facebook.

Renavoo- im doing well. Trying everything naturally possible to get rid of the pin worms I can take meds when baby is born but then I wouldnt be able to breastfeed for two weeks which stresses me out since that it a very important time!! If I still have them I will breastfeed for a couple weeks then take the treatment and pump and throw away for two weeks. Im a milk factory when my milk comes in, or with my other children I was so im not to worried about supply. I us to be able to get a good six ounces at each pumping before so I should be able yo take a couple weeks and toss.. Hopefully they are gone by then obgyn said there life cycle is 6 weeks and as long as I dont reingest they will go away... My kids did have it about two months ago and took meds. who knows if they have it now ive made them an appt. As far as GD I am also a huge sugar eater so this whole thing has been crapy and hard for me. I see the nutritional specialist today to gey my diet plan and blood sugar monitor, then I follow up with my obgyn next friday to decide if insuln is needed. She seemed very worried at my appt because I was spilling so much sugar in my urine it was 1000+ (not sure what that means) and my fasting sugar was 80 and during my 3 hour glucose test my sugar stayed above 250 for two hours then only came down to 180 by the time I left... I know thats bad but not sure if thats really bad...maybe kewpie would know... I hope non of you ladies get it... Im just glad delivery is only 2 months away at yhe most!! smile.gif

renavoo - thanks for asking about us.  All in all we're doing well.  We just had our first night of total chaos last night.  By "we" I mean me and the babies... of course DH was late coming home from work.  I'd tell ya what happened, but I don't want to scare you all.  Let's just say that there was a lot of baby body fluids of various types and when DH got home, he took one look at me soaking wet, holding 2 naked babies, and I was laughing hysterically and said, go sit down, i'll clean up everything.  (and he did!)

Kewpie, thanks for stopping by for an update!  I laughed so hard when I read your FB post!!!  It totally happens :)  And with two, it's double the fluids!

 

Lyndi, glad to hear you have a plan for breastfeeding and taking the drugs!  I was wondering how that would work, but hopefully you get all cured from a natural treatment beforehand.  So lucky to be a milk factory, I never had a ton :)

 

Renavoo, that's pretty distrurbing :(  Can't wait to hear how it goes for you tomorrow.  Great names!!!  How cool that you have 2 cultures to incorporate!

 

Keira, hope all is going well at home with the babes!

 

Thinking about all the other grads too that don't post much!

 

Sending lot of positive thoughts to rcr, blue, and laggie!!

 

AFM, had my ob appointment today and I am measuring 5 weeks ahead for a singleton!  I wasn't surprised comparing my 2 pregnancy pictures, but wow!  I was also able to gain 5 pounds this past month!!  So I am up about 8-9 pounds overall...headed in the right direction finally!!!  Being able to eat totally helps :) and now I feel STARVING all the time, even after I eat.  The only bummer is I have to wait 2 weeks to get in for my anatomy scan, but I guess that's about right since Renavoo is going in tomorrow and I am exactly 2 weeks behind her...I was just hoping for next week!

Thank you all love.gif

 

Things are starting to settle, both babies are doing great and we are getting a little sleep.

 

Rena Love the names.

 

Belly can't wait to hear what you are having I;m happy to hear you are feeling better.

 

Kewpie how do you transfer the babies to the  co sleeper? we kind of gave up and they sleep in the bed with us but we only have a full bed so I can't imagine this is going to work for long.

 

I'll get started on my birth story before I forget.

 

Now a pic :)

belly - haha yeah, I had to post about it cause it was just so insane it became hilarious.  Yay for being able to eat!!!  I was between 18 and 19 weeks for my anatomy scan.  It's SOOO hard to wait. After the scan, the second half of the pregnancy went FAST for me despite bedrest.  Waiting for that scan seemed to take for-ev-er

 

Keria - They are SO darling!  They definitely look like siblings!  I look at my two and I just don't see a family resemblance yet. They look like us, but not each other.  For transferring to the co-sleeper... I'm not sure I know what you mean.  DO you mean after they fall asleep in our arms?

 

We usually rock them after their night feeding after they've been changed and then just gently ease them down into the co-sleeper.  Maisie will usually go down easily, but Liam is a challenge.  We often hold him in bed and let him fall asleep there for about 40 minutes before moving him to the sleeper.  SOmetimes he still won't go and we end up sleeping with him in bed all night.  I keep him locked in the crook of my arm with a rolled blanket behind him to keep him from rolling away. Not sure if that's the info you're looking for...

Keria - wow, so cute. It must be so nice to have both of them at home. I love pictures of twin babies snuggling together.

 

Rena - I didn't realize that you are Chinese.  My DS  has a Chinese teacher come in three days a week at his school, and he is really catching on quick. In fact, the teacher commented on how good he is at learning languages. I want to learn too so that I can talk to him. He does say a lot of words to me in Chinese but he has to tell me what they mean. It is not a total foreign language immersion program, but it is pretty close because it is the majority of his class time (3 days)

Keira, oh my goodness could they get any cuter???!??!  They do look a lot a like <3, I bet you are one of the twin moms that gets the "are they identical" even though they are b/g twins :)  I hear it's pretty common...haha!

 

I forgot to mention ealier how much movement I am feeling now.  It's been almost constant all day, I wonder if it feels more frequent since there are 2 and 1 could be moving while the other rests, and then they switch :)  I got my first "major" quick and strong movement on Monday.  I actually gasped quite loudly and grabed my stomach as a relex I couldn't control...it almost felt like someone was trying to get out!  It really freaked out DH, but I just laughed, I remember when it happened the first time with DD too.  I love this part of pregnancy!  Now if only I knew genders...

They do look a lot like each other DH has some strong genes, Lucia does look a little bit like me but Oliver is DH's little clone.

 

This is a pic of DH

Kewpie Yes I meant how to put them in the crib without them waking up. They wake up about 5 seconds after  we put them there.

Keria, oh my gosh, they TOTALLY look like your DH! It's so cute! He must be over the moon. b

 

Belly, YAH to lots of movement. haha I had one of those moments during a work meeting. It's so great that you feel them all the time though. I still only feel them once in a while but I enjoy every second. I'm happy that you're gaining weight and that you're on track! I guess you didn't get a sono today? :( sniff. Just 2 more weeks and then you'll find out. I can't wait for you!

 

Lyndi, I totally know what you mean about being a sugar addict. I swear, I'm MORE of a sugar addict now than I ever was. I think the babies make me crave chocolate. 2 more months and hopefully, things will get back to normal. But until then, we're here to see you through! hug.gif I'm glad you have a plan regarding the worms. It sounds like a great thing to do.

 

Kewpie, I started cracking up as I pictured you covered in baby fluids laughing hysterically. It is so something I would do myself! But now I want to hear the whole story! By the way, DH and I are hoping that the rest of the time flies by after this next scan!

 

Rcr, HOW COOL! I really hope that whatever school my children go to will allow them to learn chinese too. It would just be great because I know it will be an important language in the future and honestly, my mother feels much more comfortable speaking in Chinese anyway (that's mainly the reason my DH started to learn). I'm also fortunate that I work really close to Chinatown so I'm thinking that when they get a little older, i may put them in a preschool around here.

 

I love all these photos that we're seeing by the way!! Keep sharing, please!

 

Rcr, Blue and Laggie, we're waiting anxiously for your BFPs!!

I am trying to decompress after a couple of very stressful days. I had an issue with a lack of professionalism at the place I had been getting my massages and will now have to pay considerably more for massages than I have been. The bigger problem right now is I found out that the lawyer I thought we hired has no recollection or records of being retained despite the fact that I sent him all the documents related to the estate for him to review. How is that not retaining? They hadn't communicated for several months, but I assumed they were just not on top of their caseload or something. I never signed paperwork, but I vaguely recall asking him if there was any paperwork to sign and he said no, so I have no idea what to do now. Our statute of limitations will be up in August so this is a major problem! We are hosting games tonight, but right now I honestly wish no one was coming over so I could deal with my anxiety and frustration so it doesn't affect the babies too much. Update- The associate is working on figuring out where things got lost in translation, so hopefully we will be able to get things taken care of appropriately.


Mama to my twin butterfly boys, Alan and Bruce, who passed away at 22 weeks gestation (3/24/12): Forever in Our Hearts. Our rainbow baby girl, my little bud of Hope,  joined our butterfly boys and Grandma Jan 1/31/13 at 9 weeks gestation. Love you so much. Next step: triadadopt.jpg

Blue, I'm sooooo happy with how things are moving along and how great your RE is!! 

 

I have an appointment tomorrow at 8am ET so I'm really excited. Hey, did anyone ever get a video of the ultrasound? I hear that it's possible and i'm going to ask about it since they don't want us recording on our own. We may do some stealth recording anyway :o)


Attempted induction at 38 weeks; ended up with a c-section.

In love with my baby boy Colin and baby girl Sienna!

Blue - Sooo happy for you to get started!!!  Seriously, that made my morning!

 

Renavoo - You sure you want to hear it? orngtongue.gif Ok... So, it started when I was changing Liam.  I always open his diaper, blow on him and them close the old diaper back up and wait a few seconds to see if he will pee.  The cold air makes him go and I have been peed on many times before I learned this trick... Anyway, so I do that and nothing. So I start changing to the new diaper.  He proceeds to pee all over the wall.  I swear this kid could shoot across a football field.  I try to catch it with a cloth wipe and he then shoots poo all over my arm.  He of course is watching himself in the mirror right behind me and is oblivious to the chaos he is causing.

 

While I'm wiping up the poo and pee, I hear a gurgle behind me.  I look over my shoulder just as Maisie throws up the entire contents of her stomach which just happens to be freshly pumped breastmilk that took me 25 minutes to pump.  She's now empty and wet and starts screaming.  I get a new diaper on him and move him to the bed to avoid getting his poo explosion on his new clothes and so I can get Maisie cleaned up.  I'm working on her when I hear a gurgle from the bed.  Liam spit up all over my bedspread and his fresh clothes. Maisie is pretty well wiped up so I move back to Liam.  

 

Just then, I hear Maisie grunting and she's turning that shade of purple that tells me she's filling her pants.  She HATES poopy diapers and usually starts to scream within a minute or two of going (usually before she's even finished) So, I stick Liam in his infant seat and I grab Maisie and stick her on a towel on the floor and I undo her diaper to assess the damage. SHe has completely FILLED the diaper and there is poo shooting down her legs... epic... So, I decided to hose her down in the shower.  I get in with her and start washing her when I realize the tub drain is going slow and the tub is now filling up with poo-water....which I'm standing in.  

 

Then I start to hear the cat retching and look outside the shower just in time to see the cat hurling all over the bathroom floor right outside the tub...hairball AND all the food it just ate.  DH was late coming home from work and I had dinner in the over which has the timer going off during all of this.  It's one of those timers that doesn't turn off until you manually turn it off.  

 

DH called while I was in the midst of all this and he hears maisie screaming and I'm saying, "I've had a hell of a night."  He was just on the freeway and got home about 10 minutes later.  I had Maisie naked and wrapped in a towel and Liam was stripped down to a diaper and I didn't take off my clothes before getting in the shower, so I'm soaking wet and holding 2 naked babies when he walks in.  You should have seen his face when he saw Miaisie's diaper (which I had left on the bathroom floor while I hosed her down.  She is a tiny little thing and I have no idea where she kept all that poo.  

 

Keria - We have that problem too (them waking up a few seconds after putting them down) We think it's either the change in position or the cold sheets shocking them awake... anyway, We've found that if we wait longer than we think we should and make sure they're really asleep, they will usually go down and stay down.  I wait until I hear them start to deep breathe and then I wait about 10-20 minutes past that.  I read to do that on Dr. Sears site and it seems to work for the most part.  Sometimes we just end up sleeping with one of them (usually Liam) in bed with us.  Maisie is pretty good about going down.  SHe will wiggle for about a minute complete with grunts and flailing, but then she'll settle.  I was told by a friend that she usually cotton jersey sheets and that helps cause it's not so cold.  I have some of those for the big crib, but not the sleeper, so I don't know if that works yet or not. 

 

AFM - I DO have new pics.  We just got the pictures back from our professional photoshoot.  I'll post a few of the cutest and possibly some of the ones I've taken recently.  They are getting SOOO big!  Liam has rolls on his arms now!  I'm pretty sure they're approaching 9 pounds now.

deborah - somehow you got cut off of my last reply.  Sorry to hear about the legal woes.  No one needs that stress, but especially not pregnant mamas!  I hope it gets rectified as painlessly as possible.  

 

belly - do you know your babies' placement?  Mine were quite far apart and I was able to determine which was kicking by the area of the kicks.  After a while, I could figure out their sleep patterns.  As they got bigger, it got more difficult to figure out who was who cause they overlapped.  I cant wait to find out your genders!

Blue- I haven't said much about it, but my MIL died in 8/10 and we have been having trouble getting funds from it so we hired a lawyer (or so we thought) and they claim we never retained them despite all my information to the contrary. The massage lady is fine, but the guy who runs the business is unprofessional and I don't support businesses like that.

Renavoo, just checking to see how your scan went this morning!  Hope you got some video (legit or not!)

 

Kewpie, I know at my 12 NT scan baby A was on my left and B on my right, so I always assume it's the same...but I really don't know if that's true :)  That's just what they told me but some views they looked like they were in bunk beds! 

 

Hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for the weekend!
