  • 1.  Since what week have you been on bed rest?
    24 or 25 weeks, I think.
     
    2.  If you have other LO's at home, who's taking care of them?
    We don't have other LO's, but we do have pets...and I am taking care of them:-).
     
    3.  If you were working, how did your boss take the news?
    I am self-employed.
     
    4.  Is DH/SO stepping up and taking care of you and your house?
    Sort of. He works very long hours during the week, but pitches in a lot on the weekends. He spent this weekend running errands and doing chores around the house (poor guy :-().
     
    5.  What's surprised you the most about DH/SO through this?
    Hmm...well, at first he wasn't taking the whole thing too seriously. Ever since our second trip to the hospital, though, he's been more attentive, and he's also been starting to think about what needs to get done immediately, should the babies arrive very early.
     
    6.  Have you bought anything fun on-line this week?
    Some of the more decorative stuff for the nursery. It is finally starting to shape up! 
     
    Twins November 2012!


  • Great idea! I hope everyone else is doing well. 

    1.  Since what week have you been on bed rest? Just now, 34 weeks.
     
    2.  If you have other LO's at home, who's taking care of them? N/A
     
    3.  If you were working, how did your boss take the news? I'm contract and I had transferred my cases, so it was not an issue.
     
    4.  Is DH/SO stepping up and taking care of you and your house? He is doing a good job. It's making me crazy not to be able to do things my way, but I'm trying...
     
    5.  What's surprised you the most about DH/SO through this? I'm new to this, but I am surprised with how well he is doing with all of the cooking. The reason for my bedrest is IUGR, so he has to feed me all the time!
     
    6.  Have you bought anything fun on-line this week? We are finishing up all of our final buying, so it has been a lot of stuff off our registry. We also bought some preemie clothes since it is anticipated the babies will be pretty small. 

    Three TI cycles (BFP...miscarriage), five IUI attempts and 2.5 IVF cycles later...BFP!!
