Bella - that's a gorgeous dress - you look great!
klc - glad you had a good anniversary but sorry you didn't have a good day yesterday I truly think once you talk to your doc and hopefully get the option of taking an anti-anxiety or ppd drug for a while if you're not anti it. This isn't something you should have to fight through without help. (Tom Cruise would love me!!)
gina - glad you're feeling better. I had lots of headaches too and the docs/nurses didn't really have a solution for me. Make sure they're not hunger-related ie before bed or in the morning. If they are, have a small snack just before sleeping, something high in protein to keep you going. This was one RN's advice to me.
Jaymie - good luck with the chiro - must be so hard to contemplate birth when just sitting around is painful! I hope you get some relief!
Re: nursing tanks - I bought some from Target and they're great!! Good value too.
Re: being emotional - I hear you all! Sad tv is a killer at the mo, as are sad commercials, haha. DH mentioned something lightly about a chair being dusty on Sat morning and for about 10 mins it didn't bother me, then all of a sudden in the car on the way to lunch the hysteria began! Like the whole workd was on my shoulders, LOL. Luckily he knew it was the hormones.
irish - glad you're safely at home with little Matthew! We'll all be learning from your experiences! Glad your milk has come in too!

bella, you look fantastic! What a cute dress :-)
aya, it's nice when our DH's can give us a pass for the hormones and not take it too seriously! I've found there are times I'm crying and laughing at the same time because I know how stupid I'm being!
apples, that must be a strange feeling to be on tenterhooks like that! I didn't experience it the first time around as I was scheduled - it will be interesting to see how I manage it this time!
klc, of all the children who are vaccinated following the recommended schedule, it is a very very small percentage who are eventually diagnosed with autism, and the link between the two is still hotly debated - as far as I am aware the majority of scientific studies find no link, the links that do exist are mostly based on anecdotes... so in all likelihood the vaccines won't have any negative effect on your girls at all, just like with most kids. And, unfortunately, we don't have time machines, so there is nothing that can be done about what's done. Honestly, I know that it is hard to let go when there is something that is niggling at you like that - but you need to try. Do the best you can to just enjoy every moment with your girls, and be in the moment with them, don't let yourself get wrapped up in what may potentially be (but most likely isn't!) in store for you years from now. xoxox.
gina, I'm glad the bleeding has stopped. Do you have another apt soon to check things out? My sister had a lot of trouble with headaches with both her pg - she eventually found that if she had a cup of tea they would go away. Could it be from too much or too little caffeine for your system?
irish, sorry you had such a rough night! I do think that Matthew will be fine if you let him sleep as long as he wants at night, in fact, you're lucky if he is a baby who will sleep long stretches at a time. Especially as he was on the heavier side at birth, he has enough stores to last him for longer stretches than a lot of the smaller babies. Ant slept five hours the second night we had him home, we called the doc because we were so worried - "everyone" says that at that age they need to eat every three hours, but the nurse we spoke to said that no baby is going to volunatarily starve itself - if he's sleeping that long (assuming he's having the appropriate number of wet/poopy diapers), we should count our blessings!
jaymie, I hope the chiro helps! If not, do you think that acupuncture might? It certainly helps with my sciatica and general back pain! Let us know how it goes!
I had the weirdest experience last night. I woke up from a sound sleep, I think after having rolled from my back (I do still find myself there from time to time, can't help it) onto my right side. All of a sudden I felt like my belly was on fire, and my back too - I thought I must be having a contraction, but when I felt my right side which is usually where I feel them, it was pretty loose. My left side did feel quite hard though - I don't know if it was a contraction, or if Fwed was just doing something weird inside me. It seemed to last for a while, was painful enough that I was even having a hard time breathing, but finally subsided when I rolled to my back again. I don't know if that's what labor actually feels like? It certainly felt different from my imagination of labor!

nico- sorry for your weird night, has it happened since then?? I so wonder what contractions feel like, as im sure everyone does! Hopefully its not contractions tho coz its still very early for you!! have you done any research on it since it happened?? rest up!
bella- cute cute dress, i luv it!!
aya- i am an emotional mess too, and when i start crying over something, if dh even says anything about it being my pregnancy hormones i get even more emotional and cry harder and get madder, lol even tho i know hes right!!
apples- thinking of you, and waiting!!
well the chiro was a bit of a waste!! At least he was honest and just said they cant help me...afterwards if it still hurts maybe they can try different things that they woudlnt be able to do while being pg, like stretches and u/s!! I just really hoped they woudl have some advice or way to relieve some pain, oh well, maybe accupuncture like nico said...who knows!!

Bella- absolutely beautiful!
Apples - I am so excited for you.
klc- I'm sorry you are still having a lot of anxiety. Are you going to talk to your doctor? I have also heard the same things as Nico, that there has not been any research to support the claim that the vaccines cause autism.
Jaymie- I'm sorry the chiropractor didn't help. I know in PT school we talked about mobilizations for the tailbone but we never learned them. Perhaps a PT specializing in women's health may have some answers or be able to help you.
Well, today was my first day off of work. I saw the nurse practitioner last Mon and told her how my back was hurting and it was getting really difficult working with patients. She said I was done and should be proud that I made it 29 weeks with twins working full time as a PT. No matter what I do my back hurts, especially when I'm sleeping. Any ideas on how to alleviate the pain while sleeping? I still have a long way to go.
We had a scare with our dog last night and today. When we got back from my parents' farm yesterday our chocolate lab was not using his left back leg and was walking on his knuckles. We took him in today and they said he most likely has a blood clot in his spine blocking the symbol. She said a lot of people put their big dogs to sleep when this happens because they can't care for them but his is mild and she thinks he will have some recovery but they have no idea how much. I really pray that he improves.
Hi to everyone else!!

Bella - you look awesome.... My brother's wedding is 2 weeks today in vegas - I hope I look have as cute! I had my SIL make a dress - Canada really is pathetic when it comes to shopping at times.....how was the wedding?
Jaymie - as the other Jamie said - look for a manual PT/women's health specialist. I've mobilized many a pg women's pelvis while pregnant. We tend to get lax (my left SI joint is ridiculous already) and your history doesn't help...
Jamie - good for you! Take a well deserved break!!! Are you done completely - or do you have any flexibility for limited hours?
KLC - please don't worry yourself sick......All nico's info is exactly what I came across as well - Olivia has had all her vaccinations. In fact - the only problems I have heard are when kids DON'T get vaccinated for ie - meningitis. A Dr in our area's child became deaf after meningitis before the new menactra vaccine was introduced. I had some PPD later on as well - when Olivia was about 4 months - then again at 1 year. It really helped to hash is out with DH on my feelings, and my social work best friend. Who are you talking to about your worries/feelings?
Nico - wierdo night. Maybe the little babe was cramped up on one side....honestly - I don't really know.
Apples - so soon for you!! you must be so excited....
Irish - our first night home with Olivia was a total nightmare......I was thinking we should turn around and go right back. Wouldn't latch, wouldn't stop screaming.....(and this after a peaceful day and first night at the hospital). That was the worst night and it just got better. We had to continually wake her during the day. We did a 2 1/2 to 3 hour routine of wake, change, feed, burp, try to keep awake a bit then back to sleep. I really liked the Baby Wise book.
Hi to everyone else.......Can't believe how the summer is flying by. At least I go on holidays soon - August 10th to vegas and then a few days in San Fran. Our "baby moon".....

bella- great dress! hope you had fun!
Jaymie- That stinks that the chiropractor couldn't help you! I have heard good things aboug accupuncture as well, maybe that would be an option.
Jamie- I'm sorry about your scare with your dog! We have a beagle and she started having seizures in the winter- she's had a few now but the first time we had no idea what was happening and were sure she was dying, it was SO scary!! Hopefully they're right and yours will be able to regain some function, poor thing.
gina- I had terrible headaches about once a week from maybe 10-16 weeks. Sometimes they'd even last 2 days, they were horrible. I never did find anything to make them better but they went away after 14-16 weeks which my OB said they would. Hang in there!
livi- Do you have any plans yet for while you're in san fran? Where are you staying? We had so much fun on our trip, I'm sure you will as well. Dress warm- it was only around 60 and foggy while we were there!
Nico- Hope you haven't had any more pains! I've still been waking up often on my back, not sure why but I feel bad when it happens. Sometimes if I stretch my leg out in my sleep I will get horrible cramping/round ligament pain that lasts a minute or two. Maybe fwed was just doing somersaults!!
Hope everyone else is doing well!
