I dont think a cage is out of the question... im pretty sure my mom used to keep me in one... LOL - wait that was one of those old fashioned wooden playpens.
Hello there! Just wanted to check in with you. How is life treating you these days? How are the kids?
We had a bit of a scare this past weekend. Had quite a bit of bleeding on Friday and spent the weekend in the hospital. US cdnt find any problems, but cervix 50% effaced and was having some contractions. been on bedrest this past week. Have OB appt on Monday to see what's what. Still spotting a little, so I dunno... pretty scary. Will keep you posted. I hope that things are going very well for you! g
Hi Christine! Great to hear from you! All is well here - baby boy is growing like crazy... can feel him kicking from outside my belly now... very cool.
How are you? I bet those two kids are keeping you busy as heck! Is DH around alot, or his out of town working?
Looking forward to seeing some new pics of your little sweethearts!
Are you really doing a low carb diet? How's that working for you? LOL - I have put on so much weight already - i'm glad that i'm due in January so i have quite a while before i need to look decent in a pair of shorts. Absolutely nothing going on here... LOL - I have even managed to be nice to DH lately... must be a full moon!
How's summer going? Still envious of the neighbours teenagers?
Not much going on here. Things are good, no complaints... even the weather is cooling off for the weekend which is good news too!
Hope that you and the babesies are doing great!
My goodness how things can change in a year! Who woulda thunk that you would be mom of two a year later??!! How is the weather down there? Managing to keep cool? We have been having a heat wave ourselves... thank heavens for A/C. Not alot going on here... im on holidays this week. Booked them before i found out that DH was going on a fishing trip this week. Oh well, hopefully i can sort through some of the junk that we have collected over the years. We have 3 bedroom house, but not very much room for baby!
When are you planning to take the kids to meet DH's family? Have they come to FL?
Hope all is well!
Oh thank you, lol. It was time to upgrade my avatar to keep up with the twins growth and I couldn't find one I liked, so I just made it :P
I think i wd enjoy getting fat if i was a little more firm. i have cellulite on the FRONTS of my legs & some on my arms. The OB tells me its water retention, but ive eaten a heck of a lot of chips & pizza over the past few months. I need some bigger clothes but i dont wanna buy much right now cuz hopefully my bump will grow & then i can get mat clothes. If i can bf I will, but i doubt it'll be possible. I had a lift 5 years ago &even tho the Dr said he was gonna leave the nips where they were, Im pretty sure one is on sideways! LOL. sorry I know its gross. If the ducts arent attached, theres nothing i can do about it. Only time will tell. Not looking forward to my milk coming in if it has nowhere to go! Hope your little sweetie pies are doing well & doin ok at daycare or with the nanny!
A year ago huh? Wow, time flies by... I hope it flies by for me. Things seem to be going pretty slow these days... just eagerly awaiting my baby bump. Im getting fat, but it sure aint no baby! LOL! It might have something to do with the amount of potato chips and candy i've been eating lately.
How are things going? Has DH been in town lately?
Good morning! How are you?! How are the kiddies?
Was just thinking about you and though i would pop in to say hello.
Thank you. how are the babies doing.
Just realized - I forgot to say thank you... how rude of me! So "thank you for thinking of me and the sprout!"
Thanks so much...I am doing better! There is so much more tragedy going on around me that seems selfish to wallow in my self pity! I am back on the waitlist and hopefully able to get going again soon. My beta came back at less than 1 so at least the clinic knows I am good to go!
Hi Christine! So- what kind of drink did you have in my honor? Red, white, or cosmo? I vote for one of each! I enjoyed a lovely de-alcoholized beer today with nachos and guac. The beer really wasnt as awful as I was expecting.
I will very gladly accept anything that you would like to send to me. We definitely will be finding out what we are having. My mom was a little ticked when i told her were finding out, but i assured her that when we found out we wouldnt share it with her so all would be well. LOL - my mom didnt like that too much!
i do have a couple of books. i have "what to expect", "your pregnancy week by week" & "from conception to birth". Interesting reading, but not as helpful as my medhelp friends!
So how are you doing? Are you & the kiddies adapting ok to work? g
Good morning! I did get the pictures. I responded to one of your emails instead of responding on medhelp. I wonder if my response has made it into your junk mail box. Thank you for sending those! I cant believe how big they have gotten! They look like chubby happy little babies! Very cute indeed!
i will re-send my email, just in case it is off somewhere in cyberspace!
Have a great Sunday!
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for your note. How are your babies doing? My little diva is growing everyday and capturing my heart with every thing she does. Take care of you. Hugs and kisses to your babies.
Just a quick note to say hi! Yes! They're both sleeping through the night!!! Woo-Hoo =) Ricky still eats approx 4 oz every 3-4 hours during the day, but seems to know when it's night time. He does have a voice, but it's a raspy voice. Sometimes when he wakes up, he has no voice. When he's trying to poop, he seems to strain, like holding his breath, you know? We're scheduling an appt with an ear, nose, throat doc to make sure nothing is obstructing his vocal cords.
I know, I know, stay away from "evil dr. Goggle".....easier said than done. Thanks for your well wishes, everything worked out fine re. my amnio! All my best Christine!
Just a quick note to say hi! Wow, I'm impressed you feed them at the same time :) I don't. The hands-free bottles sound very interesting! I will definitely check into that ;)
Good god - believe me, I've been thinking about my maternity leave & planning it all out! I really NEED a year off of work. This place is gonna drive me bonkers & the one thing that has been keeping me here is the thought that it wouldnt be fair to start a new job & then go on mat leave.
Yes, i'm still "spotting" and cramping. That combined with no h/b at 6wks1d has me very spooked. Im more than a little concerned. DH is mad at me because he says i'm being very negative when i try to explain to him the various possibilities. I just dont want the poor guy to be crushed should something go wrong.
Oh my goodness, leaving your babies at 2 months! That to me seems crazy... How are they doing? Got any newer pics?
A nap??! You mean to say you are actually getting a little time to yourself these days! C, that's awesome! not alot going on with me. I had some spotting on Tuesday and am pretty worried. Going for a WinRho shot this morning cuz i am rh negative and dh's blood type results havent yet come in so they are doing that to be cautious. I'm going for a US tomorrow to see what's going on in there. When stuff like this goes on my mind starts playing tricks on me. Kinda convinced myself that my symptoms might be going away which worries me even more. On the bright side, i will know tomorrow, and i am ready for whatever the RE tells me.
I hope that all is well with you & that your beautiful kiddies are going easy on you!
Have a great day!
Hi there. Sounds like things are wild at your place! i would love to come and help - i could use a little practice. I love kids, but babies are a little intimidating. Not sure if you want me practicing on your kids tho! How are you holding up? Managing to get any time to yourself? I know you have great sense of humour, so that really has to help with those "stresful' situations.
Hi there - thank you for your note. i will try to remember to take it easy. LOL - now i have an excuse to be lazy! Altho, that will rapidly come to an end in about 9 months.
After 3 years of trying... i cant believe this is actually happening! Its not real just yet.
I probably will have some crazy questions for you. In fact here's one... did you take baby aspirin, and if you did, how long into your pregnancy did you take it? i dont have another RE appt until June 14 and I'm thinking that might be a little long into it.
Thanks again for the CDs. i will hang on to them till i'm past the danger point and then send them on to someone who can use a little help!
Thanks so much for your note!!! Congrats on the babies!! How are you doing? Are you seeing in double yet? haha.
It looks like since I started AF yesterday that I could be looking at IVF#2 in June with ER in early July. I still have to get approved by insurance, but doc believes everything will be fine. Good to hear from you and wish me luck!
Good morning C! Yup, IUI this a.m. Things went weird this cycle. didnt respond to increased Femara dose. had 1 foll & lining at 3 cd9 - dr said there was llittle hope. When I still hadnt O'd by cd13 dr decided to trigger - i had 2 folls by then, (22 &16), plus my lining was 7. So i guess there's hope afterall. DH is being a knob too - went drinking last nite. Glad this is important to him.
I bet you are POOPED! That wd be so much work! Just one wd be a huge challenge. Do you have someone there helping you? Thank heavens for formula. I dont think that i will B/F at all - cant stand the thought of it - had a lift a few years ago and things just arent the same in that area. How did the soy formula work out? I hope the fussiness passes soon! Hugs to you & your sweeties!
Congratulations! Time for a celebration...
OMG!!! really u have natural del. Babies r so adorable. sending lots of love for them and how r u doing? lucky u!!!!
take care and I will check on u soon.
Congratulations! Time for a celebration...What beautiful babies, good job!!
Congratulations!!!! They are absolutely adorable! Sorry the C Section wasnt so hot - but on the bright side, it's over and now you can enjoy motherhood!
Good Luck!!!! waiting for babies pic. :)
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Good luck with everything, post pictures
Just listened to the first CD. (well, most of it. DH came home and turned it off) I actually had tears streaming down my face while listening to it, For some reason it really moved me - especially the business about ancestors and loved ones welcoming the spirit of your unborn child who will arrive and exactly the right time. I feel pretty good after listening to it - am considering listening to it again later on tonight. Thank you, C!
TOMORROW!!!! EEEKKK! Are you ready to meet your precious new babies? I bet you are more than ready! They must be about 7lbs each by now! That is a whole lot of baby to be lugging about - you must be so tired!
I got the CDs in todays mail! Thank you so much for that. I really appreciate your kindness and pray that i can pass the CDs along to someone else sooner rather than later. Headphones are a fantastic idea! LOL - too funny about the aching feet and back - i DO have those already - are you telling me they will get worse? LOL - I'm ready for the challenge.
I hope that everything goes smoothly tomorrow and that you make a speedy recovery. Looking forward to hearing about it! Hugs and prayers, Gayle
