I.......can't........breathe!

Here I am at week 40..uh...I mean 25.



I am finishing a round of shots today. My doctor has found better success at giving them to all mothers of multiples seeing that pre-term labor is so common. I will have my last shot today then my monthly ultrasound following. I can't wait to get another look at the little ones. The last ultrasound showed little Mr. in a transverse-lie position (he is baby "A" so this is especially naughty) and the little Miss was breech at the upper right of my uterus. I have daily talks with my son about his positioning and though there is time for change, the window gets slimmer more quickly with multiples. I have felt their movements change so the ultrasound may reveal some changes in positioning!?!?!

As you can see in this photo, I have total prego face. I take one Tums, per child, per meal. It does not matter what I eat. And I stay away from the obvious heartburn foods anyway. I rarely have heartburn when I am not pregnant and the Tums do serve as an extra calcium dose to help ease those wretched leg cramps that can accompany pregnancy. So I can't complain. Anyway, just an update.

I took prevacid when I was pregnant with Greta if it helps you any... of course she is a psycho maniac, so maybe that had something to do with it...

Wow. 25 weeks? That's fast! Maybe not for you though... :) That is so not a pregnant face. You want to see a pregnant face you should see mine when I was pregnant with Jakob - oh wait. I think I BURNED them all!!

Just threated babies A & B that if they don't cooperate you will name them Pete & Repete or Kate & Duplikate...regardless of gender! (Not sure if Grandpa would love it or come back and "counsel" you?!) And I don't see any prego-face ...just beautiful Jill face!

You look wonderful! Both Belle and Guy were transverse. We turned Guy three times, twice within hours of his birth. We both grow babies sideways, apparently. Keep us updated. We love you!

Kristine said...

Sorry for all the aches and pains :( You still look beautiful!

Beautiful Jill!
Loved the update and love you! I can't even comprehend taking care of two little babies at once--Wow! Thanks for keeping us updated. By the way...for those of us who have NOT been to your Eagle Mountain home...how about some pics showcasing your fabulous deoorating skills? We, your fans, would love it!

Oh man. I can't believe TWO babies are in your tummy. This is crazy. But crazy wonderful.

You look fantastic! I'm only having one, and if I forget to pack the Tums in my purse, we have to stop at the grocery store to buy me some. I should take out stock in tums! Can't wait to see your two little ones.

if that's your "prego face", you're in pretty darn great shape.

You look fantastic. Can't wait to see the 2 who are added to your cute family.
