Birth Plan Out The Window!
Hey Honey Bunnies!
So, let me tell you about when the Wonder Twins arrived. Remember when I had a detailed birth plan? And remember when I said my doctor encouraged me to be flexible?
Everyone was pushing for us make it to at least 28 weeks. On Friday we hit that goal and I received another round of steroid shots to assist with [...]
Cloth Diapers vs Disposable Diapers
Hey honey bunnies!
One of the things that I’ve been thinking about is cloth diapering. Now cloth diapers are not the same as they were when I was little. They are really cute now and have a ton of benefits. Among these benefits are that cloth diapers are eco, pocketbook and baby friendly.
With two babies on the way, the cost of disposables [...]
Twin Pregnancy: Body Changes
Hey honey bunnies!
Just wanted to share the changes that I’ve been experiencing.
I am a human rotisserie or at least that’s what I think I look and feel like. It’s getting a little difficult to get and stay comfy. I find myself rotating and flipping over a lot, much like you see with a rotisserie chicken. That’s a much better visual than a [...]
Surviving Hospital Bed Rest
Hey honey bunnies!
We are still in the hospital and doing well. Contractions have started up a couple of times, but nothing too serious or that a shot couldn’t knock out. I don’t even feel it when I am having them!
So what’s been going on?
Probing- No, not anal probing. I’m in the hospital, not on an alien mothership. Several times a day, the [...]
So I’m in the hospital on bed rest. We are ok, but the doctors want to be very careful.
How did I get here? I started having weekly check-ups and ultrasounds after the cerclage was placed. When I went in last week, I was having slight contractions. I didn’t even know it. I figured that they would calm down and I would get to go home [...]
Moving While Pregnant and Having a Flexible Birth Plan
Many of you will remember that I have it all planned out regarding my pregnancy and delivery.
Once we found out that we were having twins AND I needed a cerclage AND went on bed rest, everything we had planned and discussed was in the air.
When we found out we were having twins, we decided to move back [...]
When we found out we were having twins, the doctor at the ultrasound center immediately called the midwife I was seeing and they placed me on bed rest. I was transferred to a high risk obgyn and had to get an immediate appointment. Hubs and I were excited, but confused by it all.
The doctor soon cleared up the confusion. My cervix was shorter than it [...]
After a few months of guessing and waiting, we know the sex of our baby! Hubby and I had our anatomy ultrasound on Monday.
Want to know what we are having? Let me replay the scene for you:
Ultrasound tech: “I’m going to put some warm gel on your belly and we’re going to get a good look at your baby.”
All eyes are on the monitor and [...]
Hello Auntie Marsha,
Yep, you read that right…Auntie Marsha. You know what that means right? I’m pregnant. And it’s all your fault. I warned you didn’t I? Remember this? I TOLD you that those sexy songs would get folks pregnant and if it happened to me, you would be Auntie Marsha!
I’m pregnant and you have responsibilities. These responsibilities are to be determined, but Auntie Marsha is [...]
Remember when I blogged about the evil of sketchers shape-ups? Well apparently I am not alone. The FTC has stepped in and determined that the studies that Skechers used to toute the benefits of Shape-Ups are flawed and false. I could have told them that! http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-57436508-10391704/skechers-shape-ups-why-the-ftc-called-companys-studies-deceiving/ Two of the studies were headed by a chiropractor who is married to the Senior VP of Marketing [...]
