Huge Congratulations Patsy!!!
Huge Congratulations Patsy!!!
Patsy congratulations. Glad to hear it all went well.
Slight panic here today as I calculated just over 7 weeks until planned caesar. I read on a site today that I probably can't see my toes?!? Can easily see my toes just thinking how much growth there will be in those weeks. Hoping to stay at work for as long as possible.
Not sure how all you twin mummies do it with 2 squirmy worms wriggling about in there. It must be really tough getting around and truly uncomfortable. Thoughts are with you all.
KMP, I'm 27wks and still don't feel them. Every now and then when I"m lying down I can feel nerve type pulses but that's it. I can clearly see my toes, infact I painted my toe nails tonight with no problems. (And my babies aren't that small, 1 being in the 88th percentile, the other in the 42nd)
Most of the time I"m still agile, the only problem I have is getting off the lounge, its one of those that you sink into.
My main problem is constantly be exhausted with no energy or motivation to do anything, like today woke at 8.30am and by 10.15am I wanted to go back to bed to sleep. I've been like this for 7wks!
I'm sure the uncomfortableness will come in a few weeks.
Baby A has been active for some time, baby B more so in the last couple of weeks.
I often feel them tumbling (this makes me feel seasick) and hitting each other 😉.
I was advised to take an Iron supplement after my blood test at the OB this week showed I am anaemic. Since starting this the fatigue isn't quite so bad. I have however reached the awkward, cumbersome stage where it takes a multi point turn to get out of bed. Apparently my fundal height is about 36(?) but as he described on Wednesday 'I am dealing with a short wheel base'...😳
I was advised to take iron tablets since 10wks, they haven't helped.
Whats a "fundal height"?
Ha Blinky - love short wheel base! Me too am 5ft 1 (the 1 being very important)
Miss sagi - fundal height is where your uterus is - they measure from your pubic bone to top of uterus in cm - classically at 20 weeks for singleton at belly button height is 20 cm - then 1cm higher every week for twins they say 4-6 weeks/cms ahead - some twin mummies measure 50+ weeks by the time they deliver. But depends on where they lie....I'm so uncomfortable all the time .... My short wheel base!
Our twinnies are wriggly worms too lots of activity and especially in the evening! Love the 3 point turn to get out of bed Blinky Ive got my OB appointment tmr so will see how I track size wise. Bubbies size 2 weeks ago measured lil girl only 7 percentile and lil man 67, so big difference and they wonna keep close eye on the missy. I was quite worried about her size as my 2y old was always 98 percentile mark and even over. Otherwise I feel actually really good and the first 4 months issues are left behind. Anemia here too and bit of back ache but not too bad.
Hi to everyone else!
I don't thin I"ve been measured for this yet but I'm assuming I would have a short wheel base too being 5ft 2. 😁
My bloods were good so no iron and I don't take a daily vitamin (I'm not good with regular meds). I'm 5 ft 2 and happily only have one gymnast inside of me. I must admit I have some weird movement for getting out of bed. I bought a belly bandit from Baby Bunting and that has really eased bladder pressure and heaviness through the day.
