Expecting our 1st and 2nd

I had my 24 week appointment this afternoon. It went really well. My blood pressure was good, urine tested negative, and I got my flu shot. Baby A still seemed to be head down, but Baby B keeps switching positions. My doctor said she wouldn't start worrying about positioning until about 30 weeks. The only negative was that I gained 13 pounds since my last appointment! Ugh! I'm up 24 pounds, which isn't terrible, but I've got to start keeping an eye on things - and cutting out ice cream. I was a little discouraged, I was hoping that I hadn't gained more than 10, but we did eat out a lot this past week. Looks like it's time to start filling up on vegetables and cutting out the sugar and carbs.

There was another mom in the waiting room who was expecting twins, and I overheard her saying her babies were measuring at almost 6 pounds each, so she must be pretty close to delivery. It was encouraging to see a woman who had carried her twins so long and gotten them to a healthy weight. She did have a VERY big belly, but I felt relieved to see another twin mom at a late stage doing so well.

There was also another woman who came in while I was in the waiting room, and she was in labor! It was a little scary. She was breathing heavily and seemed like she was in pain. Ah, what a nice preview!

My doctor said she was very pleased with how I was doing. She was happy to hear that I'm not really having any trouble yet. I'll have one more 4 week appointment and then I'll start two week appointments after 28 weeks. Next month I'll have my second glucose test and RH negative shot, and at 30 weeks I'll have my pertussis vaccination.

I can't believe I'll be in my third trimester next month! It's really starting to go by fast.

Glad you had a good appointment! I always look at the size of other women's bellies now and wonder how far along they are or if it's twins

YAY!! You're doing great! It's amazing to me that we're already mid-September and we're able to measure these babies in pounds

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"
