Just checking in with everyone. 

I can't believe that I am almost 25 weeks.  Time totally flies when you have two other little ones to keep you busy.  I had my checkup last week....waited 45 mins for five minutes with the dr.  Next appt I have my glucose test.  Yuck. 

I've had some LOW blood pressure this time around.  Makes me dizzy, headaches and tired.  Other than that things are pretty good.  How about everyone else?

 Glad you're doing okay GM.

I'm ok. I'm almost 24 weeks.

The babies are moving around a lot. I'm at the doctor or specialist every week. Tomorrow the regular doctor visit, next Wednesday the specialist for a growth scan.

I'm figuring the babies should be at least 1 1/2 pounds each. I can definitely feel them getting heavier. This is going to be some challenge walking come September. I really think I'll be delivering in September and not October, however, I'll get updates on that in a couple of months.

 

I have only gained 10 pounds since my 1st prenatal appointment.

Hope everyone is doing well.

AP, are your drs wanting you to gain more weight?  I have gained about 14 pounds total and all of it has been since about 14 weeks.  I thought that with twins they want you to gain more.  Not really sure though.

I can't imagine two little ones moving around inside me.  The one that I have seems to always find my bladder and step down hard. 

Let us know how your growth scan goes.

Really TIRED!!! I just want to sleep all the time. I've been extra exhausted this week because i've been organising DD2's birthday party thats happening this Sunday.

 Little baby kicks like crazy, dont remember my girls being this active in the womb....it makes relaxing harder. Dont have my midwife's app till the 8th july, i think.

But all has been good...Happy Smile

The doctor did not say anything about me gaining more weight. I'm eating like a normal person.

Today I had orange juice. Decaffeinated iced coffee, cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with cream cheese and butter LOL,

half a blueberry donut (someone gave it to me, LOL, they actually gave me 2 whole donuts and I turned them down) then I had water, Pineapple soda and a footlong Subway BMT sandwich ( I was going to get a 6 inch, but my friend changed it to a footlong, LOL) it had ham,salami, pepperoni , lettuce,tomato, black olives, mayo. Followed by a chocolate chip cookie. That was lunch.

Then a frozen slushy from Burger King, when I followed a co-worker after work.

I haven't eaten anything for dinner.That may be why I'm not putting on as much weight, because I get tired in the evenings and I just go to sleep.But, it's not like I'm watching caloric intake. LOL

If the babies seem like they're not getting as big as they should be I'll up my food intake, however I am already pretty heavy so they may be eating offf me.

 Hi ladies!!

 Time does fly...

I have a growth scan scheduled for next Tuesday as I have had elevated blood pressure issues in the past.  My blood pressure has been relatively low for me too and I've been getting headaches and fatigue regularly.  Baby is super active and packs quite a punch.  I have managed to gain a whopping 2 pounds so far over my pre-pregnancy weight...mostly due to pretty bad m/s up until a few weeks ago.  I'm sure I will catch up just fine as my appetite is greatly increased now.  

I have spent the past 4 days on jury duty...we got released today and I am so relieved to be done with the case.  It's hard to just sit in a hard chair for 4 days in a row hearing testimony.  All I want to do is lay down and put my feet up.  

Glad to hear everyone else is doing well.  We are going to start working on the nursery next weekend as we are leaving for a trip to the coast tomorrow.  I can't wait to start getting the nursery in order so I can sit back and relax during the third trimester.

I just hit 23 weeks yesterday and time seems to be flying. I've been really out of all online forum stuff because I'm working on redesigning my own website and it's been taking all my time for the past week :p But the pregnancy is going well, my little man is a mover and a shaker for sure. I had a prenatal appointment this week and everything looks good and I'm measuring on target. I think I've gained around 17lbs. I want a fat and healthy baby so I'm trying hard to eat well :D Been starting to think more and more about the birth. I really can't wait to hold my baby. Some nesting has started. We cloth diaper so I've started washing diapers and getting them all ready. DH and I are also going to start a home childbirth course next week (it starts at 24 weeks). So all is looking good here and I'm really starting to get eager to meet my baby :D

I'm not doing too good personally.  I just got out of hospital last Thursday after 8 days due to my kidneys being screwy.  Feel a bit like I am falling apart (blood, bones, lungs, hips/pelvis and now my kidneys) and scared of what's going to come next.  In a way it's good though as I'm really appreciating every moment of this pregnancy as the bad health has reaffirmed my need to stop now.  Our family is definately complete and it seems so perfect that we will be ending it in this way, with four boys and two girls.  Like a dream come true.

I will be finding out tomorrow if I need crutches to get about...  And should be finding out the following week if I am going to be able to have my home water birth or not.

 Other then that we are beginning to decorate the kids rooms and move them about!  I am really excited about that, although DH won't help me with it so it's going really slow in like half hour slots before my energy levels run out.


And another little coming in November!

Glad to hear all the good news.  Will keep you in my Pray Prayin4Pink.

I've been doing pretty well, aside from the emotional rollercoaster I've been on lately.  I haven't gained any weight (don't freak, I was Very Plump pre-pregnancy and have been eating much healthier - last visit he weighed over 1lb 1/2 which was right on track).  Baby boy's been quite active for a while now.  To the point I can see it from watching my tummy.

Like a PP mentioned, I have to do my glucose test next week Envy so keep me in your prayers for good results.  Then I believe I'll start my every 2 weeks visits.  I can't believe it....It's really getting close.

GL everyone

Hey ladies are you getting strech marks. I am at week 26 and won't have any so far but curious to know what's your situation.

this is my first pregnency so i don't know what's the possibility of getting them in the rest of my pregnency.

It depends on your skin type.  I had NONE with my first child and very minor ones at the bottom of my belly with my second.  The minor ones that I got happened in the last two weeks of the pregnancy....annoying that I made it that far without any.  Some people's skin types are just more prone to them I think.
