Cherishing Firendships

Misty - September 7

Just wanted to let you all know....all of you...Tara, Jess, Amy, D, Penny, Robyn, rb, Steph, Cinshon, Amanda, Cora, all of you. I have truly cherished getting to know everyone of you. It is one of those things that this little girl growing in me gave to me even before her birth. I would never trade any of the memories I have from knowing you would always be here for me to talk to if I was having a hard time with, just about anything. I hope I didn't leave any names out. If so then sorry, memory isn't the greatest anymore. :-) I don't get to talk to you much at all anymore. But I send every one of you wishes that this life will lead you in a direction that you want to go. And when you look back on things you will be able to smile and say that you wouldn't change a thing. I don't know where all that mush came from, but yeah. Talk to you all soon.

Tee hee....youre all hormonal....lol. But sweet though and I am sure everyone feels the same. Its nice to connect with people in ways such as these! It is sad we dont talk as much any more but at least we make the effort to check in. Speaking of checking in, the u/s went good and its not fetal transference! YAY! I got yelled at for not being on bed rest so I cut my hours at work. Today is day one of working from 10 - 2. Its ok I guess. It will give me more time to rest and get stuff done around the house. Anyways the babies are doing well. Breanna is 4lbs 2oz and Brennan is 4lbs 12oz. They are getting big but its the hardest getting them over the 5 1/2 mark. I have another appointment with the specialist in two weeks and if they arent gaining then its bed rest all the way for me! Grr...oh well. What ever is best for my little peanuts. Will talk to you all soon and hope you all are doing well! Everyone better keep us all posted as we get closer and closer...YAY!

 

D - September 7

Thanks, Misty. I have really appreciated everyone here too. It's getting harder and harder to check in, and I guess its the same for everyone. You asked how I am.... well, not as good as I'd hoped. My doc is the only OB here, and she's on vacation - so the hospital brought in a doc to cover her practice and call... well, he's a very nice man. Very cautious, too. Anyways, my BP had been pretty normal for awhile, but yesterday it was 147/95. Argh. So, the doc told me that he wants to see me twice a week until my regular doc gets back, and he wants me to slow down, work no more than 8 hours a day, and if I have an opportunity to go do something, I'm supposed to stay home. He's talking about maybe putting me on bedrest. YUK. If I don't have a better BP tomorrow morning, he says that I won't be going back to work. I'll be going right home. I'm supposed to watch for a sharp pain in my right side, and call him IMMEDIATELY day or night if I feel it. Anyways, my last day was supposed to be Sept 16.... we'll see! As for the replacements: well, I ended up getting 2 in a way! There was a girl hired to replace me. And there was a position above mine created for the guy. He trained in with me for a week, and now he's off on other projects, and I really don't think he'll be spending much time in the print shop anymore. Both of them are very nice, and doing a great job - but they are probably more stressed about me leaving early than I am. I haven't had time to totally train them in on everything... so, I guess they get to sink or swim! Anyways, I'm feeling pretty depressed, though. Not because of leaving work early, but because things aren't going well. My dad did some online research, and verbalized what I had only been feeling - that the one who will suffer the most from my symptoms is the baby. Another girl who I've been seeing at the docs office was induced last night because her BP was too high, and they were worried about the baby. My baby really is running out of room with the fibroid in there! We've not seen it on an u/s since somewhere early on, but if I were to guess by where I feel movement and where I don't, I'd say that up to 1/4 of my uterus is taken up by fibroid. My belly is measuring 41 weeks now, but I'm only 34 weeks.... And now my skin has started tearing from getting so big so quick... not comfortable! So - that's the long version of what's going on with that! I'm glad Robyn, that your twins are ok, and I really hope everyone else is doing well too!

Thanx Misty I love talking to you all and knowing your only a message away when I need you all. Robyn I am glad to hear all is well with you and Breanna and Brennan. D, I hope you will be fine, just remember to relax and let others do for you, I know it's easier said than done. Anyways I may have to lay down, TTYS.

 

jess - September 7

oooh misty- i love ya too!!! thank god 4 u gals- i love ya all it has been soo nice top have riends to go thru this with...thank god- i would have felt sooo isolated and alone- i know about hormonal- i started crying at Oprah yesterday- it was about a guy who was gonna have to leave his dog after Katrina- well my baby just broke her leg saturday, so it hit me hard!! Ropbyn- that is soo good to hear, those peanuts r doing good!! 5 lbs is great for this stage- u must big though eh? owie- i can symathize- and with D to...17 cm of fibroid makes a squished uterus!!!!!!!!!!

 

D - September 7

Yeah... no kidding. Squished, and uncomfortable! I have a little head jammed up in my stomach most of the time. While little feet dance on my bladder! I know this happens anyway, but it seems like most people complain of one or the other - instead of both at the same time! :-)

 

D - September 7

Speaking of uncomfortable.... my sympathies to Robyn... having two in there must be worse - at least a fibroid doesn't kick!

 

amanda.d - September 7

I am feeling done, I'm tired and can't seem to get a good nights sleep. I was crying to my hubby earlier and he's like babe I would take it if I could. I sure hope he meant that. I am feeling tight and out of room, geez guys I still have around 6 weeks left. Like D said I can't imagine how Robyn is feeling if this is how I feel with just one in the oven. Anyways I updated my piczo with my 34 weeks pic, www.amandad101.piczo.com just click on the "pics" link. TTYS.

 

<Amy> - September 8

I may not be around much but i have really apprecaited all the support and being able to vent all my little complaints with all of you understanding! I don't think i could have got through this otherwise. But I'm happy enough now, I've come to terms with the fact I'll be a single mother and love my baby so much already that it's enough for 2 parents anyway!

Hey Girls - I was thinking this just the other night, and what are we going to do when its over? I know Misty has most of of our addresses and email addresses so at least we know we can keep updated after as well........Then I was thinking it would be fun to have some type of get together sometime next year after all the babies are born..... I think that would be so much fun!! Robyn.......I'm sure sometime next year I'll be in washington to visit my parents....I'll have to catch up with you!! My mom's actually wanting me to come in October..........ha.......like I'm going to feel like going then!! I'm going to miss coming here and checking up on you all.......so we should come up with a plan to keep in touch........ :) By the way I received an email from Cinshon and she's doing okay.......still no baby :)

 

penny - September 8

By the way Amy- I have been a single Mom for the past 10+ years..........with two boys. I was going through a divorce when I found out that I was pregnant with the 2nd. My ex has only seen the youngest twice ever........so if you need any support while your going through this feel free to email me!!! Now on my 3rd with a wonderful boyfriend that is very supportive, but still has no idea how hard it's been!!
