Things are looking good overall, but we've hit some bumps along the road. I spend last Saturday in L&D after the babies had a bad reaction (no movement for 7 hrs) to my glucose tolerance test. On the bright side, I failed so bad, have a history of GD, and my OB doesn't want to stress the babies out, so I don't have to do the 3 hour test. Have managed to regulate my blood sugar levels by diet so far. Other than that, I'm outgrowing my maternity clothes and am happy to have the activity restrictions with how exhausted I've been. Have a bunch of appts next week and another 2 steroid shots. Hope everyone else is doing well.
Hi Kris, Thanks for the update -- sounds like a scary Saturday. I'm glad you got monitored so you could make sure babies are doing fine. I can't imagine how exhausted you must feel carrying twins into the third trimester, but it sounds like you're doing great, and that you have great dr's helping you out. Can you believe how soon you're going to have those babies in your arms!?
Thanks westsidebee! We are doing well so far and am very fortunate to have the OB/DH/work/friend/church/etc support to do this. I think exhaustion is pretty much a universal pg complaint that we all get to enjoy even after our babies are safely here 37-66 days and the babies will be here. Wow it goes fast.
How are you feeling? Is everything going well with you? Your LO will be here before you know it too.
It's hard to believe Eliza is almost 8 months old now. You were just giving birth as I was joining the boards. I have been horrible about the list and everything else. The laundry list of reasons/excuses is in another post. Hope you are enjoying your first holidays as a mommy/
