Teach thanks for stopping by I am trying not to let MIL get to me.Like I said if she keeps it up it will be her lose cause she wont be seeing much of her grandbabies.I am so excited for my appointment today its at 12:30............I just hope my babies are well and I do hope we are able to find out if we are having 2 boys or boy,girl.Well take care talk to you later.
Kari I saw your good luck note to me thanks I will keep you all posted on my appointment.Have a good one.
Ok ladies back from OB things went well.Excpet for OB found my blood pressure slighty on the high side but that is because MIL was there with us.........lol.Well today baby A was being shy but we dont care cause RE saw that was a boy plus OB thought it was a boy several weeks ago.Anyway Baby B is a GIRL yes a girl well I still wont believe it until 20 week u/s.Well it was funny cause their h/b's are 147 and 156 so before OB saw the girl I said is it true what they say about the h/b under 150 is a boy and over 150 is a girl he laughed and said not always the case I see you have been researching.............lol.So when he said girl I said see it turns out its true.............lol.He just laughed.OMG I wish I had a camera to take a picture of DH's face when he said girl.It was priceless he was so cute.Ok so onto my MIL who came with us today she went to far.She asked OB twice what my weight was so he finally told her I gained 24 pounds and she said OMG you need to watch your weight.OB got annoyed with her as well and said I am not worried about her weight I am worried about her blood pressure.So I got so mad if OB had taken my blood pressure right then it would have been through the roof.I said to her in front of OB if I want to gain 200 pounds thats my buisness not yours.She dident even ask about the babies or was she worried about my blood pressure.OB told me to avoid salt and spagetti type foods and breads and to keep an eye on my blood pressure.Anyway I told DH that is enough I will not see her for while.She ruined our day and I wont forgive her she has gone to far.I just felt bad for DH cause he was upset to with her but bottom line its his mother.He couldent believe her after he had a talk with her she did it again.So now I see she came just to find out my weight gain and not about how the babies are.Ok sorry to vent I am just so upset.Well liitle boy weighs 8.6 ounces and baby girl weighs 9.2 she is measuring bigger and she was more active.I cant believe how big they got their heads are near my ribs and at one point they were bunting heads OB thought that was funny and he laughed.So babies are weighing big for their age so I am happy about that.Ok ladies thanks for checking in.Hope you all have a wonderful afternoon.
Eva I am sooooo happy for you!!! I'm sure you guys are thrilled to be having a boy and a girl! Their sizes sound great. You should be very proud of yourself!! Now, as far as your MIL....OMG!! I can't believe she said that. I am glad your OB kinda shut her down. I would def. not let her come to an appt. again. That is extremely rude! I am so sorry that she did that and you had to deal with her when you should have been enjoying your babies!!! Well, I am glad that things are going well with the babies. Do you have names yet?
Eva, how EXCITING!!!! A little boy and a little girl making their way into your family!!!! I can't believe it... I thought for sure it was gonna be another little boy for you. I bet you are so happy your little girl wasn't so shy today! Isn't it fun knowing now and you can go find another perfect pair of little shoes to put on that nightstand of yours?!? Yes, as for MIL, I'm with Teach. I just can't believe that woman. It truly is no wonder your BP was on the high side. Oh, and I pulled out my guidelines for a healthy multiple pregnancy and you are doing just fine! In fact, if there is any doubt... your OB assured today that your weight gain is benefitting your babies - they are weighing in beautifully!!! And that is just what you want! Keep it up girl, keep it up. You are doing great. Your MIL truly sounds like one miserable woman. I don't blame you for staying away from her! Well take it easy my friend... next time we'll see that your BP is much lower cause your MIL isn't there with you!
I'm glad to hear both babies are healthy & weighing in good!! How exciting to have a little boy & a little girl! You get the best of both worlds! I can't believe how rude your MIL is, & I wouldn't let her go to anymore appts either. I certainly don't blame you there. I'm sure your bp will be fine as long as you distance yourself from her a bit. She really has some nerve! Well, you know how it is - some people should just come w/ filters so we don't have to hear some of the stupid or insensitive things they say. At least your dr was on your side. Well done on another great appt!
Eva congrats on another wondeful appointment. WOW a BOY and a GIRL how exciting I am so happy for you and DH. As for MIL I cannot believe that she is such a rude cow, she should be happy her grandbabies are doing so well and not worry about your weight gain, but I am glad that your OB put her down. Try not too worry about her too much you babies are doing well and that is all that matters. I hope your BP goes down by the next appointment. You are doing tremendously well.
Teach,Holly,Kari and Charlene thanks so much for the kind words I apprecaite them so much.DH and I still cant believe it.Honestly I wont believe it until 20 week u/s which is scheduled on 10/2. The funny thing is though that I dident even ask OB yesturdady but I saw that he kept nudging my tummy I thought he was trying to get a measurement of twin B but out of the blue he says its a girl.I said are you sure he said just about yes.He had this hugh smile on his face and he said it with such confidence.DH's face was truely priceless girls.I am so happy I could give him what he wanted not that he doesnt want a boy he did he just wanted one of each.
As for MIL I am so done with her no joke not only is she not coming to any more appointments but I am not going to talk to her for awhile.DH went by there this morning before going to work and she wasent there he wanted to give it to her.So I went in this morning for b/w and urine and I asked the nurse to take my BP and just as I thought it was normal as a matter of fact it was toward the low side like it always is.I had 140/70 yesturday and today it was 108/70.So my theory was right its was my MIL's pressence.I called OB and told him and he said did something upset you yesturday is that why your BP went up?I said yes it was someone who annoys me and he laughed he said I think I know who it was and then he says dont listen to anyone you will listen to me and your body.I think all is going well with you and the babies so everything and everyone else doesnt matter.I thanked him but he did say to still take my BP every other day to make sure it doesnt go up again.So thats my update.Kari as for the little shoes DH had the same idea so we will go this afternoon.............. Ok ladies once again thanks so much have a wonderful day.
Eva-I am glad to hear your b/p is better! Hopefully Dh can get through to MIL this time!! I'm glad your OB was kind enough to reassure you about everything! I also wanted to tell you that my next u/s is also on 10/2. I guess we can anxiously await together!!!
Hey girls...so i've been reading your posts for about 12 weeks now and i guess its time i introduce myself ...i am a february mommy...due feb 27th. i will be 16 weeks tomorrow this our first baby, DH and i have been married for almost 2 years now...we went in at the 13 week mark for the first trimester genetic screening u/s and tried to see the sex but the baby didn't want us to know yet (much to DH's dismay) so we go back october 14th for our 20 week and we'll finally get to know what we're having. my next appt is sept. 18 but it's just a checkup, more BW, etc. we're both soo excited about this little one...i look forward to getting to know all of you in the next 5 months!!! congrats to all!! good luck and here's to happy/healthy pregnancies for all of us!
Hi there Teach I'm glad my BP is back down as well it had me worried I barely slept last night.All kidding aside I really think my MIL's pressence effected my BP.As for DH getting through to her I dont know cause she has done a lot of stupid things and she continues to do stupid things and DH has talked to her about all the stupid things she does.I dont care anymore I am through with her I just care that my babies are well.Its her loss cause I went through a phase where I dident go to their house for so long and she still does stupid things.Honestly I wish we lived near my family.So anyway I got all my b/w and urine results back all is fine .Well thanks for stopping in take care.Oh and thats cool that we have our appointments the same day.
hey guys! glad to see everyone still going strong!!!
eva... im so glad you were able to find out. a boy AND girl! how exciting!!!!
my apt is tomorrow!! my nerves cant about hold out. that added to the excitment. i cant about stand it right now! hehe.dont know why but i am actually nervous about finding out the sex. not like it matters either way i will be overjoyed so will dh but its just weird. i think more so that i havent made it to this point before. this whole preg. i have been saying just make it to the ultrasound and things will be fine and its here... i just feel like i can actually be excited.. its great... oh on another note.. i saw a women who knows im pg and she says to me oh you are just getting FATTERand FATTER and FATTER!!!! grrr. yes im getting a huge belly but am actually loosing everywhere else i think because i havent gained but 1 pound.... i cant wait until it gets cold enough to wear winter close because my summer shirts.. even mat. ones are not covering the baby...i just cant justify buying new ones being so close to the end of summer. any way i need to hit the hay.. big day tomorrow! and a very long drive!
Eva my friend, thrilled to hear that your b/w and urine testing results came back and showed that everything was fine! Good job. And I had a feeling your BP might reflect a much lower number if taken without MIL there! I don't blame you one bit for staying away from her. She just doesn't get it. I think it might be better for your emotional and mental health if you don't have to deal with her and that, in turn, is good for your babies! Did you get that second pair of shoes for the nightstand? That'll be sure to keep a constant smile on your face and warm your heart! Hope that you are having a good nite my friend!
Eloise, Welcome and congrats on the pending arrival of your little one! Good luck with your upcoming appt... we look forward to hearing all about it!
Lost, It's so cute how excited you sound. Good luck tomorrow! Can't wait to hear the gender of your little one!
Hey there Kari well I have made my decission I am keeping my distance she is not going to get to me anymore enough is enough.So enough about her she is not even worth my time to talk about.I am just happy all my results came back good means I am doing something right and should be given some credit right.Ok so yes DH and I went out last night and bought a pair of pink little shoes oh they are just so adorable.Well thanks for stopping by have a great day.
Eloise welcome to Feb moms glad to have you.Glad things are going well with you and baby.Stick around its really great here.Take care.
Hey Lost good to hear from you.So glad your appointment is today how awesome.I am sure all will go just fine.Keep us posted.Thanks for the congrats DH and I couldent be happier I still wont believe it until 20 week u/s though.Ok well have a great day will look forward to your post.
Hey Feb. mom's. Haven't posted much. I go Friday for my ultrasound. I will be 18 weeks 1 day. I am just praying everything looks healthy. For anyone with annoying in-laws (this seems to be a common subject), when it comes down to it, you could take care of them when you give birth. I was scheduled to be induced but we didn't tell our family until it was too late for them to come to the hospital (basically just because we wanted me, hubby and baby to have alone time), but family was so anxious to get there and was even mad when hubby told them not to come because my dd was in incubator and I (the MOTHER) didn't get to hold her for day and a half. Let alone have all of them up there in my business. That is what we are going to do this time too, let them know after the baby is born. If they aren't supportive, it makes it much worse when they want to see a baby you haven't spent much time with yourself, not to mention you are a nervous wreck. Also, you can have a "private room", and they can't just barge in at any time.
Eloise, welcome to February moms. I don't have as much time as other moms do to post on here, but I read it all and try to answer questions. Congratulations!
Amanda, I think that is hilarious what you did with telling your families too late to come in time! It sounds like a brilliant idea. With my ds, I thought I'd be so happy to have the support from family (in-laws, and my own), until the day of...
I was scheduled to be induced, and this was the first grandchild for both families, so they were all SO anxious. My mom begged me to call her as soon as we got a call from the hospital to go in, so they could make their way over (btw, they live about 30 minutes from the hospital). So of course, I had no idea how long labor would be (I hadn't thought of asking ob about it beforehand), so I had dh call both families when we were in the hospital, and I had my iv in, and they came right away. So my entire family (which consists of 3 siblings and 2 parents--all of which should've been in work, or at school), and dh's parents (he has 3 siblings and 1 is married, but they were all working, since this was a Monday morning) were all sitting there in my labor and delivery room as I was contracting, etc. It was AWFUL. I mean, as if the process isn't hard enough, try doing it with 7 people staring at you. Eventually they all trickled out of the room when they realized the baby wasn't being born any time soon, but were back and forth from the waiting room to my room all day long. In hindsight, I really should've asked them to leave and we'd tell them when I was getting ready to push or something, so they could wait in the waiting room, but I just felt so bad because I knew they were just all so excited, and they were there to support me and dh. But this time, dh and I have agreed that we will call people and let them know when I am about to push, and if they'd like to wait around, they can. Because that was a whole other story... By the time the baby was born, dh's 4 siblings had arrived at the hospital. And it was a good hour before they came in (I was being stitched up from an episiotomy), but it didn't feel like I had that much time with my dh and Liam, because I wasn't exactly resting. I really wish that I would've had time to spend with them alone, before having the family in. I told dh that this time, they are NOT coming in and snapping pictures, and passing my baby around like a hot potato an hour after he or she is born. I don't care if they're waiting in the waiting room for 4 hours.
Sorry, just needed to vent on this subject!

hi all !
i havent posted much but i try to read as much as i can.
wow, can you believe how far we've all come ?? it's really exciting !
on monday, i'll be 17 weeks and then 3 more weeks for the big sonogram.
i am really looking forward to it. dh is going to bring the dvd recorder.
with dd the hospital made me sign a paper and write a list of names for who was allowed to be in my l&d room. i only signed dh names, so no one else was even allowed in the entire area !! they had to wait outside the alarmed area.
well, i have to get ready for work now. it's my 3rd to the last weekend at the chocolate shop -- it was just a part-time summer job.
hello everyone... welcome eloise!
my ult. went great as far as they could tell the baby didnt have a cleft lip or hard pallat they cant see the soft tho so that is still unknown.... but other than that everything measured good and looked good.. He likes his toes alot.. he wouldnt let go of them.. it was so cute... did you notice that HE in there?? its a boy.. a VERY definate boy!!! its so exciting.. well guys im gonna go for now.. just giving you the update!
Amanda trust me my MIL is not allowed to even come to another appointment let alone be in the delivery room.I am giving birth in a very private hospital where they only allow DH in.But that was a good idea to tell them late.I will keep that in mind.Plus trust me no one will be passing my babies around with their germ filled hands.I will not allow that.DH and I went through 4 years of ttc and 2 years we seeked help from and infertility specialist so trust me I am not going to let anyone do as they please.Hope your u/s went well.Keep us posted.
Meluca good to hear from you glad all is well.
Lost that is great so glad the baby is well.So a little boy how sweet congrats to you and DH.Well take care good to hear from you.
Whiskers you can vent anytime as you see I have been doing that a lot lately.Maybe you can take Amandas advice and not call them or do as I will and just not allow it after all it is your baby.Well take care.
Well I will be 19 weeks on Monday nothing much going on my 20 week u/s will be Oct 2nd.I have been having a little trouble breathing since yesturday but I read thats normal at this point as your organs become more compact near your lungs.Other then that all is good.Well hope you all have a good weekend and hope anyone in Texas is well.
