  • 1. How many weeks? 26

    2. Any updates? A/S? Etc? 1 hr glucose test was fine, BP is fine, baby doing well. I will have another ultrasound at 30 weeks to check him. I start bi-weekly OB visits now.

    3. How are your preparing LO for the new addition? Talking about baby, I told her that her job is to teach baby songs, etc. My job is to feed baby. Daddy job is to change diapers. Im also trying to work on independence. She is independent but she also wants me around and I know when  baby comes I wont be able to be around as much.

  • 1. How many weeks?  33 weeks!  Super pumped, I feel like the end could be around the corner; we might actually have this baby!  2 more weeks and I will stop stressing about these braxton hicks and preterm labor.

    2. Any updates? A/S? Etc?  OB apt tomorrow, I am interested what she will say about my glucose test numbers, for the most part they have been in line with the levels.  I am also obsessed about mine and LO's weight gain.  

    3. How are your preparing LO for the new addition?   We talk about Jesse and how we will all hold him.  We say that Jesse loves his big brother Owen.  We are still trying to come up with a "gift from Jesse to Owen for a the hospital"  any ideas???  

    4. QTKY: Labor Day plans?  potty training weekend just to see how he does, his play school starts that week after.  He has done amazing with the transition to the twin bed, so i feel its time to give him the opportunity to at least try.  I admit I am scared!

    BIG UPDATE on the house renovations!  Plumber was here ALL DAY and we might actually have a master bath before this LO arrives!  Possibly tile on the floor and walls by the end of next week!  I am so so so excited!  Plus nursery is SO SO SO close to being done, I need to finish framing a few things, paint his name letters and get DH to hang everything.   

    Oh and tomorrow night my mommy group is throwing us a "sprinkle"!  Keep rolling time, just till he gets here then SLOW back down!

  • Hello, 

    I am 19 weeks. I had my anatomy scan and my baby girl did ok. They said she is almost 1 pound and measuring ahead a bit, but all fine. I do have a fetal sonogram next week and an OB appointment. I feel better, and passed my glucose test which I took early. I am a bit anemic, but all fine. 
    LO knows she is going to be a big sister. She knows that her sister;s name is Gabi and that she is in my tummy. She asked us daily if she is born today, which is sweet, so we will see how prepared she is. We got her a baby doll we call baby Gabi and talk to her about the baby. We read books on Big sisters and that is all for now. 
    Seeing inlaws for for FIL bday. That is all for this weekend. Staying local and low key.

  • 1. How many weeks? 33 weeks!

    2. Any updates? A/S? Etc?  Had a weekly appointment today.  Still about 1.5 cm dilated, so it seems to be holding steady.  Hoping for the same report next week and then maybe I'll be allowed to increase activity.  

    3. How are your preparing LO for the new addition?  We talk about 'her baby' and what she will do to help.  We bought one of those "I'm a Big Sister" books too that we read with her.  Other than that, nothing much.  I actually feel a little upset when all people want to talk to DD about is the baby.  I don't want her to think he's more important.  I want people to still be interested in 'her.' :(  

    4. QTKY: Labor Day plans?  DH has to travel, so my MIL is coming to stay with DD and I since I'm on bedrest.  She'll take DD to a birthday party on Saturday, but other than that, no big plans for while she's here.  Maybe she can help clean our house?  It sure needs it!!

  • 1. 22 weeks!

    2. No real update. I have appts next week with the MFM and my ob. I am so exhausted lately! Does the 2nd trimester not give you energy when you have twins!? Ugh! Also, not pregnancy related, but my "baby" started kindergarten this week. :'(

    3. I'm not doing much to prepare the boys. We talk about it...but not as much as we should. Their stepmom is also pregnant and its her first, so I think she involves them way more than I do in her pregnancy! I think once I feel comfortable doing the nursery and buying things then I will try to get them involved and excited.

    4. No plans! My in-laws will be in town, but not for the holiday. They are renovating a house down here to move into soon, so they are coming to check on the progress. But, I'm sure we will be spending plenty of time with them.

    5. Jeanna- I made a gift bag for K with a tutu, big sister hair clips, a new barbie, coloring book/crayons, etc. She loved it!! Maybe a tshirt and some toys?
