Robin - Thanks for the great info on the car set up! And for the mirrors! I'll definitely look into getting those. Not sure which car set up I want to do - I like the way you have yours and the way Ashley did hers on FB. I'm going to start playing around with the options soon, very soon! lol

Triplets! Wow! Congrats and welcome! That's exciting! How are you feeling?

Katie - Hope you had a nice day with the DH :) I always woke up like I could eat an entire zoo too! LOL!

Pregw/Triplets - Welcome and Congrats!!!! Any ideas on genders or are you team green?

Kathy - No problem. I like Ash's setup, the only thing is then DS1 would be sideways to the DVD screen and you'd have to crawl in to get the twins in the back - things to consider ;). You'll probably have to tweek here and there as you go ;)

Katie-When I don't wake up with nausea I wake up so hungry too!!! That must explain that excessive weight gain already :oops: :oops:

pregw/triplets--wow how exciting. Congratulations!

I love hearing all the ideas for car setups. A friend of mine was telling me about how she has three car seats all in one row of her SUV. I am wondering if I could find car seats small enough to do this in my Subaru Forrester. If I could that would mean we wouldn't have to get a new vehicle.

This past week has been rough for me. My son and I both caught viral infections and that aggravated my asthma. Had an asthma attack and then the next day start cramping and bleeding. Went in for an ultrasound and saw both babies bouncing around and got to see their cute little noses and thumbs. The bleeding has turned brown and the cramping is off and on so I am hoping will be fine.

B4Becky - I have a friend who was able to get carseats that all fit in the back row of her sedan, I will ask her what she got and let you know :)

Glad you and the babies are okay, hope you and your son feel better soon!

I'm 23 weeks with G/G twins and have a 19 month old daughter. Seems like there are a lot of us that are in the 22-24 week range! How exciting!

I've been feeling ok the last couple of weeks. They diagnosed me with anemia 4 weeks ago and since I started taking the iron I have felt so much better... thanks to the TWW multiples board girls for helping diagnose me!! :)

I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with b/g twins they are our first and second babies...

I'm totally getting more and more uncomfortable, standing for too long, sitting for too long. I have no idea how I'm going to make it to 36 weeks.

Mornings are when I feel best... it just seems like by the end of the day my belly is so bloated nothing else can fit...

I could have written this, except that mine are both boys.

I have a hard time eating dinner because I have no more room in there by the end of the day.

Oh gosh it is so much tougher than carrying one. Feel bad for you guys who are pregnant for the first time. I can hardly eat dinner either.....there feels like no room in there! I am counting calories trying to eat enough each day. I miss the cravings of my singleton pregnancy! We can all vent to each other about the discomfort.

Anyone have names picked out yet? I am having a really hard time cause they have to go together and go with our son. Makes it harder I think!

I would love to know what kind of carseats she has!

DS is 7, he will be 8 by the time babies get here but he is still in a booster. I have a Dodge Avenger and don't plan on getting a new car so I'm hoping I can make 2 carseats and a booster work in the back seat!

Hey girls, hate to barge in, but just wanted to put my thoughts on car seats in.

I have a wagon and three kids all in full car seats. We have three Sunshine Kid Radian's in a row and they fit like a glove! They are amazing car seats (quite pricey here in Canada)!

When the twins were first born, Grifyn was in the middle and the twins bucket seats were on either side of him. There was plenty of room for the buckets. Now they are all in the 3-1 car seats and its great!

Thanks for all the car/carseat advice....it really helps! Robyn, those are very cool carseats!! Have never seen them here but may have to get them if they are good and narrow.

Can only imagine how excited you guys who are getting so close are feeling! Have max of ten weeks to go tomorrow and am getting so excited!

Hope everyone is feeling well and sleeping some! My sleep seems to be less by the night with restless legs and discomfort. Had my sitter yesterday and took the time for a nap....soooo needed!

I think my babies have recently moved positions. I can suddenly feel them up much higher, and I cannot bend over at all anymore. I can feel the stretching in my fibs and across the top of my stomach too.

I think I may have had 2 or 3 BH last night too. They were just a couple, and no consistency to them. My BH started at 28 weeks with DS, but never turned to anything more.

I've been having BH for a long time now. my dr isn't concerned and my cervix is still closed.

I can't believe my Dr. wont sign me out of work until 32 weeks. I mean seriously! I wanted to leave work at the end of april but she's talking june. I just dont think I can make it at work that long. I'm up on my feet too much and I just feel like there's all kinds of pressure!!!

:(


Side note: my lil girl (baby b) flipped positions from one u/s to the next so now she's head up and he's head down... I really hope she flips back.. I'd love to try a normal V delivery....

Baby A seems to be head down each visit. Baby B is all over the place. Sometimes he is head up, sometimes he is transverse, it all depends. He kind of takes over and squishes Baby A down into the lower right quadrant. He also has an anterior placenta, so I do not feel much on my lefthand side. Everything I feel is on my right.

My HR doc said she would sign me out of work whenever I ask, but I want to work as long as possible. With DS, I worked until the day before he was born. I would do it again, if my body allows me to.

My back did start to hurt quite a bit last night. I don't know if it was from walking around at the grocery store. It feels better today, but we shall see how that goes.
