Postby MommyToOne+2 » Mon Dec 30, 2013 9:19 pm

So it's been awhile!!! I'm still chugging along. I've had a pretty uneventful pregnancy. Until last week anyway. I went to L&D on Xmas Eve b/c I was having ctx. They gave me a shot to stop them and sent me home on bed rest until I see my OB tomorrow. I went back to L&D on Friday b/c I was having ctx again and they told me 6 an hour and I had to go in. I had bacteria in my urine so they thought maybe the start of a UTI so I got a shot of rocephin and that crap burned so bad! It was awful. I was told to continue bed rest and by Sunday I was feeling much better and only had a few ctx. I had my first NST with my MFM today and babies were great. I have my 32w appt tomorrow (31w5d) and I'll find out if my OB is concerned about the issues last week. I think it was just the UTI b/c I've been fine since.

My first duo are getting so big...I can't believe they are 2 already. They have taken notice to my growing belly and Deacon has claimed it as his own. He doesn't like anyone touching my belly...he pushes their hand away and says "my belly" and lays his head on it. I try telling them there are babies in there and they act like I'm crazy. I'm praying they do well once they get here.

Oh and Baby A is head down so FX for another vaginal delivery!! The plan is to make it to 37w2d and be induced. Praying they stay put until at least 35w!

And spam!

Glad things are going better! Hopefully, it was just because of the UTI and your 32 week appointment went well. Fingers crossed that baby A stays head down for you. Right now both of my babies are vertex, but it's sooo early that I know they'll probably flip around a few more times. I just hope they find their way back to this position before delivery because I would love to avoid a c-section.

Hawkeye - Mine have been in every position possible! At about 26 weeks Baby A went head down and she's stayed there...I think Baby B may have flipped breech today...he didn't something crazy and made me holler it hurt so bad. I'll find out Monday what's going on with them...I'm anxious to know. I think Baby A is just squished enough she will stay put!

I'm late to this post but I see you're almost 33 weeks and still chugging along! Are things getting tougher yet?

That's adorable that your DS has claimed your belly for his own. What's he going to do when it shrinks? :D

It is getting tough...I'm so tired all the time and chasing toddlers really wears me out! We've joked that after I have the babies he's going to be freaked out I don't have a belly any more!

I can only imagine how exhausted you are! Chasing my toddlers is tiring enough, I really can't even fathom being pregnant and having 2 more newborns to care for. You're going to be superwoman!

Also, my little crazies are SO jealous of each other - are yours like that? I wonder how they're going to react to 2 more babies.

Not to threadjack, but OH MY I have a jealous one too. If I even smile at Emmett, Beckett is on my lap trying to steal my attention. How many times a day do I say "I'm Emmett's mama too, I can hug Emmett too!"

And yes, you ARE a superhero! Toddler twins and two newborns... I feel like I'm barely getting enough sleep as it is and mine sleep for 12 hours every night and 2 hours for naps!

It must be a toddler thing. Reagan HATES it when I'm reading to her and Morgan wants to come and sit in my lap and listen too. She tries pushing Morgan away and taking the book and I have to tell her that it's OK for Morgan to listen to the story too. Then once I'm done and Morgan walks away, Reagan moves to the middle of my lap and wants me to read to her again.

They do have their nice moments too, but sometimes I think they're just pissed they're not an only child!

Oh hilarious! Yeah, I wonder that about my kids too, if they'd be happier as singletons. I don't really think so because most of the time they LOVE each other and play together great (and create a ton of mischief together). Our current issue is that Beckett is the biggest love bug in the world and wants to hug and kiss everyone all the time. Emmett is soooo not like that and every time Beckett tries to hug him he's screaming and trying to get away! It's so cute, but I do feel bad for Emmett. lol

Awww, that's adorable! Yeah my two do love each other a lot. They mostly follow each other around the house a lot and they always look for their "Sis". The other morning Reagan woke up early so we put her in bed with us. A while later we hear Morgan in the other room yelling "Sis!!" If they're ever separated for the day - usually when one is sick and I stay home with her while the other one goes to the sitter - they're both pretty lost without their sissy.

Luckily they aren't too jealous...of each other anyway. They always want to know where the other one is. They are really sweet with each other. They do get jealous if I hold someone else's baby though so I'm a little worried about how they will react tot he new babies. I try to talk to them every day about the new babies though so I'm hoping they realize they are here to stay. Should be interesting! I think the biggest issue will be me not being home for a few days. They've never been away from me more than a few hours. I went and took a nap earlier and you would have thought I was gone a week when I got up! Dh said they asked for me a million times!

Was wondering how you are doing? Didn't know if you had the babies yet---and I'm curious to find out what you're having--you were waiting to see right?
Anyway- hope you are well!!!

Babies are here! They are 2 weeks old today. I delivered at 37w2d. I was scheduled to be induced and went into labor on my own the night before. I had another successful vaginal delivery. Both babies were 6lbs even. We went home the next day! We've done great so far. Both are nursing like champs and Deacon and Finley are great with them. I had a boy and a girl again...their names are Piper and Harvey. I'm so in love! I still can't believe I have 5 kids!
