Oh man, that makes me mad, I want you to see some 4D pics of your babies!  Is Kaiser your insurance or your doctors office? Sorry, I'm slow!  how is your tummy feeling?  I can not get comfortable at night.  And where our boy is (right below my breasts) it goes totally numb sometimes.  They are both laying accross my belly instead of up and down!!

Hey Alli!
I miss you too!  I am so excited and happy everything is going so well with your pregnancy!!  I saw your new pics and I love your belly :-)  We are carrying our twins the EXACT same way. A (my girl) is laying accross my bladder as well, I always feel her kicking my bladder so I think I have to pee but when I sit down to go nothing comes out.  Better to be safe than sorry I guess!! Twin B (my boy) is up in my chest and I feel him move right under my breast bone alot.  Are your kids still loving your belly and wanting you to name your twins after them??  Lots of hugs and kisses to your little beautiful babies making their way here-and to you too!

Hi! Thanks for the nice comments about my little girls. They are such good babies. I think the main thing and I am sure you will hear this often, is to get them on the same schedule for feedings. I typically will feed the "pacer" (the one who wakes up first and is normally always Jamie) first and then after I am done feeding her I wake up Kendall and feed her right after. If I don't and let them sleep, I will be up every two hours. That is two hours after the 1st feeding began so really only about 1-1/2 hours or less of sleep! Last night I tried to see how they were naturally going to eat to see if they were close to one feeding per night and they weren't. I was up four times (11:00 pm Kendall, 1:00 am Jamie, 3:00 am Kendall, 5:00 am Jamie). Ugh, not ready for the one less feeding yet : )

Hi Alli! Just wondering how you are doing with your twin pregnancy. Not sure if you know or not but there is a Multiples Forum now. Just go to the Forums list and it is under the Pregnancy: Multiples. Hope everything is ok.

I do have the same thing. I didn't even know there was a name for it though, I just thought they were in the front! I am going to pm you and give you my e-mail address.  James said he would sign us up for instant messaging tonight, do you have that?  I feel better that this happens to you too, they stay so still for so long sometimes and my mind starts racing....

Hey Alli, I was wondering..(from one twin ma ma to another) sometimes can you feel you babies moving ALOT and then they just stop and you don't feel a thing forever?  This happens to me all the time and I find myself getting worried (I know I shouldn't) and one of the babies (the one on top) moves way more than the other. Does this happen to you?

Hi Alli!!! Thanks for the note. Sorry for the delay. My dh broke our laptop so I haven't been able to get online. Things are going well. We were able to bring the babies home on Friday and they are being perfect little angels : )

I just read the note below as I was typing this and it looks like you are getting the comments about "how can you be having twins, are you gaining enough weight". Just wanted to say that I had those comments up to the day before I had the babies. For some reason people always think you will be freakishly huge. Just ignore : )

Take care and hope all is well.

Thanks for saying I look awesome! I am concerned because people keep telling me I don't look like I'm almost 5 months pregnant with twins. It's ok with me!  And my doctor says everythin is good and normal, but I am going to bring it up to him at my next app on the 30th.  Do you think I should be bigger?? Maybe I just carry well??  Oh, I'm not nesting yet.....I have a terrible habit of doing laundry and then not taking it upstairs!!!

Hi Alli! Sorry for the delay in responding to your note. We had the girls on Monday and I just got discharged yesterday from the hospital. They are doing great and are just feeding and growing at this time and breathing on their own.

I am assuming the u/s you have on March 4th at your 19 weeks gestation is the level 2 ultrasounds, where they will look at everything from head to toe and everything in between. The focus it to make sure the organs have/are developing on track and there aren't any issues. They can also sometimes see any abnormal chromosomal "markers" so that is reassuring as well.

Take care,

Trudi

How did your testing go yesterday?  Did you already get results or do you have to wait? I've been thinking of you and hoping everything is good!

Hi Alli, thanks for the note. I am doing alright. I have  some bad days and good days. At the bad days, I feel tired and very gasy, don't want to eat much and I hate the gas. One of the baby's head likes to go to my left side which close to my pelvis, and it bothering me when I am walking as it hurts a little.
I just had a u/s last week, it's so amazing when I saw them. When are your babies due? I am thinking to join a group that  parents have multiples. I need to look into it. I am sure it will be very helpful.

It sounds like you are doing very well! Before you know it your belly will be making waves. I think I first saw my belly move from the outside at about 18-20 weeks. I use a Snoogle when I sleep and it really helps a lot for getting comfortable. If our babies are born at 34 weeks, they could possibly need additional oxygen but otherwise the risks from prematurity are really low but not absent. I will have another bio physical profile (BPP) test and growth check next week so I will keep you posted. You are so close to your level 2 u/s. Do you have it scheduled yet? I think they typically do it around 19-21 weeks. Take Care! ~t

Hi Alli! Well, today I am 33 weeks so one more week to go to 34. We are taking it one week at a time. I will most definitely have a c/s due to my complete placenta previa. We will have it scheduled for 37 weeks but my doctor thinks I will go sooner. Apparently they don't schedule c/s before 2 weeks. I was in labor and delivery last night for a few hours because of contractions and they gave me a shot of terbutaline and fluids through an IV and everything calmed down so I am back at home. The babies are really cramped in and they like to kick my ribs which doesn't hurt but is very uncomfortable. How are you doing? How far along are you now? You are probably in that great point where you don't feel sick anymore and are starting to show a little. That is the BEST time so enjoy ; )

I am not sleeping that well either.  I get up about 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom.  I wish I could have the good sleeping nights back.  I go to bed extremely early too bc I can't keep my eyes open.

Hi! Thanks for the note! I am doing well but on strict bed rest. I have complete placenta previa and was in the hospital a little over two weeks ago for bleeding and also contractions. I am on Nifidipene (sp?) for the contractions and am taking it easy. I am 32 weeks now and just hoping to make it to 34. My doctor thinks we could go any day though. Wow, you are 15 weeks already! The time sure does fly by.... Please keep me posted with your updates and especially the gender!!! Sooo exciting! ~t

Hey Alli bally! I don't mind you asking at all.  I actually don't know how much it was.  The 4D u/s was done at the genetics place I told you about.  But when I get the bill I will be sure to fill you in.  We can get a video tape so we are hoping to at our next regular u/s!! Oh by the way, we don't have to go back to the genetics office because everything was healthy and normal-whew
