I'm feeling better today, health wize and in the being pissed off with my mother in law department. I mean its not even like she knows what she is doing is wrong which just makes it that much worse.

Anyway, its my youngest son's 2nd birthday today. He doesnt really understand what all the fuss is about, but I am making a fuss over him anyway. I was so disappointed when I found out we were having a boy with him and it took very long for me to connect with him during my pregnancy. Thankfully my husband gave me a lot of alone time with him when he was born so bonded with him a lot then. And now he is such a mommies boy and I love it!

So a girl that went to high school with me sent me a msg. She got married really young and had her first child quite quickly, but none of us were surprised b/c she grew up with children and babies around her (she went to high school living with her grandmother and she ran a day-care from home so there were always babies). Anyway, her 2nd one she had a couple of years after that, but was on birth control at the time and didnt get a period while on it, so only found out she was pregnant when she was almost 6 months along. Unfortunately the baby had a bad congenital heart defect. He was born but had to have multiple surgeries and passed away at 11 months (most horrible thing I think could happen). Anyway, she got pregnant again and had a little girl a couple of years later. She got a 'loop' which I have read is an IUD or something similar. Not sure if you have to replace the loop every 5 years like you do the IUD or what. Anyway, she went for her annual in Dec and during the sonar they picked up a heart beat, so she got pregnant again while on birth control. She said it was such a shock, her oldest is 16 and her daughter will be 12 in April. She said one moment they were planning for university and then suddenly they have to add bottles and diapers to the mix as well! I just say that God really wanted them to have this baby, maybe its to "fill the void" of the little one they lost. Not that one could ever replace the other, but you know what I mean.

Anyway, point of my story is that as soon as she told me I told my husband that whatever I do for birth control, he will also be going for a snip. I dont need surprises like this!! I will most likely get my tubes tied. The only thing that puts me off of that is that you still get a period even with tied tubes. But then the specialist told me that women get their tubes tied and then get an IUD as well to get periods to stop. I might just do the IUD, will see what goes for what. Have been trying to read up about it. Some women say they love it, others say it didnt work for them, others say they gained so much weight. Anyway, will keep on getting some info.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

@ Carien, shoh that is rude to invite people without asking! I would have an absolute fit if I caught people in my bedroom :headbang: :swear: I would never go into someones room without been invited as its someones personal space. One can just breathe and let it pass...while swearing under ones breath. Glad that the pills are working

How are all the other ladies, any news, cravings, morning sickness?
Anymore gender reveals?

AFM, feeling great these last past days (touch wood) and have my Downs blood test on Monday and then the 12w scan on the 5 March. Doc says seeing that I will be 12w4d the scan will be 96% accurate to see the gender. Boy oh boy are these weeks dragging

Morning ladies, hope everyone is doing well. I am pretty much man down with some sort of flu/cold bug and the joys of just being able to take panado is really just not helping! I have been getting steadily worse, and I know it is supposed to get worse before it gets better, but this is just not funny any more. I actually left work early on Monday just to go lay down, and usually work from home on Tuesdays but stayed mostly below radar yesterday. I dont know why but I feel guilty not coming to the office even though I am sick. I dont use my sick leave, and I know that is what its there for, I just feel guilty, especially now that I'm pregnant b/c I feel like ppl will think I am using it as an "excuse" to not do work. I have a friend who pretty much sees her sick leave as a target to make and makes sure to use up every single day in the time period allowed for anything from a cold to waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Anyway, I will live through this one as well :)

My son's party on saturday was good, my oldest did not sleep well on Friday night so my husband and I were both pretty tired, but got through it fine and the kids had a great time. I only had one close friend and then my sister's kids so not that many ppl. We had more adults than children, which is fine, he is only 2 and really doesnt care about other children at this time. My cousin was also supposed to come but one of her twins has measles so I asked her to rather stay away, I dont want to take any chances right now. My kids will be fine but I dont want to take any chances for the baby.

My MIL pissed me off to the Nth degree b/c she again took it upon herself to invite the great grandparents, and my husband is too nice to say something. I just say that they dont need to be at every single child's birthday, not like they go to the birthdays of all the other cousins and they are their grandparents, why on Gods green earth do they have to come to every single damn event that I have at my house. I think it pisses me off more that my MIL decided (again) to invite them, HATE it when ppl "take over". And then, I find my FIL and husbands brother and his wife in our bedroom, w/o asking if they could go in there. I just feel that is our private space and seriously, if you want to go into my room, then the least you can do is ask. They say they were looking for a computer, they could seriously just have asked, I would have brought it out of our room for them. So I told my husband to get them out of our room, only to find them in there again. I know its not that much of a big deal, it just pisses me off when (like i said) ppl "take over" and going into my private space definately counts as taking over.

Anyway, I will get down from my soap box now, sorry for the rant...

I also see the doc again next week. I actually also gave in and called for a script for the vomiting which is really just not getting better right now. I think the post nasal drip I have with being sick is not helping b/c most of the vomit now is just phlemg. So I got the Zofer and holy hell that is expensive! My doc gave me 20 pills and it is R1000 for those 20 pills! Almost fell over! Anyway, I have it now, and used one yesterday and I must say it did work really quickly so I think the pills might be worth the cost.

Anyway, nothing really else from me, just trying to make it through the next few hours and then will go home to take it easy again. Sorry for the ranting, i was just a bit pissed off. Hope everyone is doing well otherwise :)

Yay on the boepie showing a bit, Chanti! :-) :rock:
So we're just about a week apart. When did the doc say your due date is? I'm still unsure about mine. I'm thinking that the C-section will most probably be booked for the last week of June or first week July (if I can last that long!)
So we'll probably know a little bit more next week.

When my uterus tightens I'm thinking that it's the babies maybe turning or moving and I usually rub a bit to relieve the "pain". Twin A is definitely way down low in my tummy because if I wear pants, I can feel the tightening's more frequently and consistently. Twin B is more to the right and I feel the flutters and bubbles on that side.
Can't wait to see them again next week! :-):heart:
