I'm Finally Home!!!

Hey everyone! I'm 34 weeks now so they finally let me go home from the hospital today after being there for 5 weeks on bedrest. So now I'm at home on bedrest for 2 weeks and I still have to take the medication that stops the contractions. It's such a relief to be out of there until the babies decide to finally come. I had an u/s on Tuesday and they are each about 6 pounds already! I couldn't believe that they could be that big so quickly - they each gained about 2 1/2 pounds in the last month! Anyway, just thought I'd give an update. Hope everyone's pregnancies are going well!

Re: I'm Finally Home!!!

I am sooo happy for you Cristy! It sounds like your babies are doing fantastic as well! Hopefully you will get through another week or two and then be safe to have them at last. Yay!
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.

Re: I'm Finally Home!!!

Oh Cristy, that is great!!! Congrats for making it home and for what sounds like a very productive hospital stay! I bet your little boy is so happy to have you home! As for the growth, one of the main points that the Dr has made in the book I'm reading (about multiples) is how growth starts sooner and ends sooner with twins and even more-so with triplets or quads. She said that is why it's so important to gain lots of weight as early as possible when carrying multiples. I'm glad that you shared your own experience with us as now I have a real life example of what she was saying. I'm sure you must be relieved knowing the babies are over 5lbs already. Well good luck over the next couple weeks... Keep us posted on how you do and if the babies decide to make their entrance a bit sooner than 2 weeks from now!

Re: I'm Finally Home!!!

Cristy, Just wanted to pop in and say congrats on making it home and growing those babies to over 6 pounds a piece. Sounds like you've got two healthy ones in there. I can't belive you're almost to the end of your seems like just yesterday we were all celebrating the start of your pregnancy! Rest up for the remainder of the time you have and I wish you the best of luck with your birth! - April
