Who knew that pregnancy could render it impossible to sleep?????

I mean what about the good ole days when I was pregnant with Laila and I could literally sleep 24 hours and still be tired?

I get that I'm having twins and I need to get used to it.

I get that I may never sleep normally again.... I knew it would happen and still chose to get pregnant again....

So why oh why can't I sleep UNTIL they arrive!

Second night this week that I woke to use bathroom.... And end up wide awke at 2 am...

So tonight I'm doing something constructive and complaining rather than tossingand turning in misery!

Twin progress- belly pictures

13 weeks- began noticing I was growing fast

EVERYONE noticing I am growing fast! 18 weeks

Well I began this post on Firday with good intent to finally add more pictures...I actually do have some....

So Friday I didn't feel the best and tried to make it through the day. Haven't been feeling well since I got that awful upper respiratory infection a few weeks back. So getting through the day has been a bit of a struggle and not being sure what to power through and what to sit down for. But Friday I figured out what the limit was.

I came home and rested. And around 8:15 or so it was clear that something was wrong. I was drinking more and more fluids in hopes that it would get better, but by 8:45 I knew I neded something more! So I called the doctor on call, she certainly didn't impress she recommended I go to armory hospital. So I ended up talking to the labor and delivery nurses trying to get in touch with the doctor on call there...let's just say.....I was less impressed with their attitude....which included telling me that my babies weren't even viable!!!!!! Like I didn't know that...and like it mattered to me. The whole idea of calling for help was to make it to and past the age of viability! So after I explained not wanting to talk to them and that I wanted to talk to the doctor on call. Finally dr w called me back and told me to go into Columbus, which is where I plan to deliver. I was NOT happy about how I had been out off by the new dr there but I needed someone to stop the contractions that were 2-3 minutes apart and painful. So after sill having to go through the emergency room and not getting to l&d til nearly midnight. At least they gave me an IV and some pain medicine to settle my very irritable uterus. I wasn't looking forward to seeing this doc come morning but feeling much beet that I wasn't progressing. Nurse checked me, and I was closed and very high! Whew! Good news.

5 am came and in came dr b! Whom had not impressed me the night before when she blew me off! But she actually must have realized she wasn't nice to me and that I wasn't impressed cause she spent like 45 minutes with me and even ordered an US that gave me a passing score with cervical length greater than 3 cm, which is prefect! So headed home we were. In time for Justin to make it to work...little late but didn't loose the day. So for now, I am restricted until we see the perinatologist tomorrow. I am really hpeful that he tells us we can start those progesterone injections and that can settle these contractions down.

For now, at least I know where my limits are, sort of. I am taking. It easy and have been since Friday night. But I truly had been trying to since I had gotten sick. Think that darn cold stared the whole thing. Maybe I can at least work for a while and make the Disney trip with Laila and Justin in novemeber. I realize that is asking a lot BUT I sure can hope!!!!!

For now....I will just sit and pray for healthy babies in about 19 more weeks!

So it's Monday....

And I'm at home sick!

Tomorrow I will be 17 weeks.

Wight gain right on track per recommendations at 17 lbs.

Nausea finally gone it seems and then the crud bug decided to find me.

I'm waiting for the nurse to call me back so lord willing I can take something besides water to help me function.

Just checked the babies heart beats because I haven't done that in a while. Baby on to and to the left(my left) was ranging 130-160... Very strong sounding. Bby on bottom and to my right was 140-150's as well. Definitely sure that they were diferent and didn't have trouble finding them.

Next appointment is end of the month and isnwhen we see the specialist.

Jusrtin getting ready to start digging. Which is ALWAYS a busy time of year for us! He is gone and comes in DIRTY! Laila will miss him more than she normally does during this time of year because they have been spending so much time together with me being sick!

So funny how they spend most all of their moments with them all their lives....daddies can spend just a short quality time with them....all of the sudden...they are superman and you are toast! But for the time being....I'm glad that her daddy has been able to do for her....cause I sure have not been able until recently!

How have all of you been? Anyone else ever seen maternal fetal specialist? How was it?
