Tuesday was a big day...We (me and the kiddos) went to the regular OB in the morning...I found out the results of my 3 hour GTT...I failed. So I officially have GD. It sucks and honestly I am kind of pissed at my dr's office because they didn't give me any advice on what to change...just told me they will call in a few days and set up an appointment with a specilaist about it. Ugh....like I need another appointment that I have to drag myself and my kids to. They had a hard time finding the babies Heartbeats...they are so packed in there but we finally found them....laying on my back like that is sooo painful...mainly when the babies are running away from the doppler and so they are pressing on my spine...I usually end up in tears. I got my first steriod shot...not bad...stung a little bit no biggy. Didn't have any side effects really. Other then that my BP looks good...no swelling!
In the afternoon We all headed to the specialist...DH took off work early to go with me so he could hang out with the kids in the waiting room. Got to see the babies and they are so cute...Cole(Baby A) is still head down and isn't going anywhere...DR is almost 100% sure that he is there to stay....which means I get to try for a vaginal birth as long as nothing else comes up. Corbin (Baby B) is breech...he was actually sitting on his brother's head...lol...but Cole is kicking him in the head so I guess it all evens out...lol Everything looks great with the babies...great fluid level and cord flow is great. Dr. S is happy with everything and doesn't see any issues.
And they weight in at Cole 3lb 5oz and 3lb 11oz....If those are weights are anywhere near being right then this is the most baby weight I have ever carried...and I still have hopefully 5 to 7 more weeks left for them to keep gaining. My DS and DD both were 6lbs 8oz. No wonder I have never been this big before!!!!
Today I went back in for my second steriod shot...ugh...now that one sucked. I was fine until right after I got home when I got ready to make the kids some pancakes for lunch...I almost passed out. I knew that the shot messed with your blood sugar but I didn't relieaze it would be that bad...I was able to grab a coke real quick and chug it and I was better after a few minutes. But man that sucked. Other then that I am having the hyper feeling that everyone told me would happen...to bad I am in to much pain to take advangate of it.
I also signed my form to consent to the tubal...In Oklahoma it is the law that it has to be signed 30 days before the surgery...to give you time to think about it and change your mind. I am not actually 100% sure I want to have it done but I do want that option. I will only have it done if I have no other choice but to have the c-section.
Well that is about it...I am pretty miserable...In the past few days I have went through a growth spurt and my belly has gotten bigger...my stretch marks suck...they itch so bad but I can't scratch of course...a few are bleeding because they just keep stretching. All of this will be worth it in the end...but man I am hurting!!
Also another development....I am almost 100% sure that we will be doing 100% formula with the boys...and the weird part is I am 100% at peace with that. I have no doubts or fears...and in no way do I feel guilty about it. I know that it is the best choice for us right now...and that is all that matters. I know that it won't instantly make everything easier...because ya that ain't going to happen...lol....but it is what I think will work the best for us. Dh of course thinks what ever I chose is fine...even though he does worry about me doing to much and he says there is no reason I need to try to be supermom all the time and he is right. Oh and I called WIC today to get an appointment to sign everyone up for it...so that way it will help us out a little...and pay for formula once the twins come...I don't care what other's say...already had someone bash me today because I was going to use goverment assistant to raise my children...lol I have paid taxes since 18 years old and DH has since he was 16....so I feel no guilt what so every.
Thanks for reading my novel...can't you tell that the steriods are making me hyper...I doubt I will sleep much tonight....lol
Congrats on the one good appointment. As far as the GD, ask away if you have any questions. I was on terbutaline to stop contractions and that elevated my blood sugars. It made me fail my 3 hour test. I had to eat like I had GD, but didn't need insulin. The second i stopped the meds, my blood sugars regulated. I got really creative about what I could eat.
I love the boys' names btw. I've always liked Corbin, but it's too close to my DH's name to use.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

So glad to hear the appt went well. Sounds like you are getting all the plans in place for them I think you are absolutely right to do what is right for your family. It is no one else's decision to make.
