Valerie-Yep, you're right about the $hit and the fan. I'm glad everyone is stable now. I'm also relieved that you and the babies are where you need to be even if that means spending the rest of the pregnancy in the hospital. We'll do our best to keep you entertained while praying for every extra day those babies can stay put.

Piecey-LOVE the nursery pics. Once you hit 5 kids, you don't get to decorate a room, but I went a little crazy at BRU yesterday finding cute froggy things to decorate the area in our room where the crib and changing table will be. (Got the crib from my sister earlier this week and am waiting not-so-patiently for my DH to put it together.) I got a crib bumper, a changing pad for our dresser (which doubled as a changing table for our other kids too), a mobile with a frog, princess, coach, and castle, and some matching sheets and receiving blankets. Once everything is set up, I will have to post some pics too.

Welcome to Autumn and Boltfans! Autumn, this baby I'm expecting was a big surprise to us too. I struggled a lot with the news before just embracing it. (I didn't realize just how much I was embracing it until my little shopping spree yesterday! Fun!) We already had a big family AND we already had all of them in school all day. But...in the grand scheme of things, life can offer a lot of surprises MUCH more unpleasant than an unexpected pregnancy. At least that's what I finally decided.

Thanks all. I'm hanging in there. Right now the most annoying thing is the IV port in my wrist. I'm not attached to anything, but I still have a "live" port that hurts if I move my wrist too much.

I also have some compression stocking things that I have to put on my lower legs when I'm just lying around -- which is most of the day. They're like velcro leg warmers that are connected to an air compressor & they alterante blowing up to try to avoid blood clots while I'm on bedrest. I actually think they are helping, my legs look skinnier, more normal now. So I guess I was retaining a bunch of fluids in my legs.

You wouldn't believe how sweaty & skanky feeling you get from just sitting or lying in bed all day. Doing nothing is harder than you might think. My son has a t-ball game today. The plan is for DH to bring him to see me after the game now that I'm more "normal" & settled in a regular room. We'll see if that makes things better or worse.

I also think that we have more or less settled on names for these kids, Dylan Michael & Kathleen Marie (Katie) -- I think. Subject to change, of course. So then we'd have Dan, Dylan & Katie -- sounds good together, no?

I love the names, but I'm a little partial to Katie!

You are in my thoughts and prayers

I hope you are able to rest and get comfortable. Love the names you have picked out so far. We will keep you in thought.

Just for piece of mind. . .

Did you all feel a lot of pressure and such down below (like where you would normally feel cramps)?? I am 20 weeks and it seems early for a lot of pressure down there. Baby was sitting on my bladder during the last ultrasounds, so I'm chalking it up to that, but I just wanted to hear from some of you that are further along! Plus it seems early, but I am already having to pee like crazy. . .

I had a lot of pressure down there...it felt like he was jumping/laying directly on the uh, more private areas of my anatomy.

Is that what you mean?

I was thinking someone else on here said the same thing. Maybe Sarah or Veronica?

Mine went away after a few weeks. I have no pressure there as we speak. Lucky me with the baby who doesn't want to lock into position still

*eta*I can't help on the pee'ing thing. I only ever really had the increased urge to pee during the day when I drank a lot of water or juice... it's really just been the last 4 weeks where I have been getting up in the middle of the night to pee.

Yeah - pressure on my private area - which I was surprised about - but also in the bladder area. I am thinking it may have to do with growing there and the fact that she likes to sit and jump on my bladder. . .

Mine went away when he flipped.

That might not have had anything to do with it but I know I woke up one day and felt loads better and found out he flipped.

Maybe they're literally sitting on your private area? Have a talk with them-- they're supposed to be butt up!

LOL - when we saw her at 17 weeks she was head down, but at 20 she was literally sitting on my bladder - but she s insanely active - the ultrasound tech was chasing her around my stomach, it was a bit funny. . . so sometimes it feels way worse. . . plus I've read about that round ligament stretching an other stuff. I usually say I think she likes to use my bladder as a trampoline, but now I know it is her couch, lol!

At least some of the time these babies are stomping on my cervix, that feels weird. And on the increased peeing thing..... being the resident PTL expert, a UTI can set off PTL, so it is worth a call to your OB to check, just to make sure that you aren't brewing a UTI. Monday is probably soon enough though. It can also be a totally normal pg symptom though too.

I am due in January and had my first appointment yesterday which landed me in the hospital for a couple of hours because of dehyrdation. I think this is going to be one long pregnancy.
Welcome! I'll add your name to the list on monday when I'm back at work. We're here for whatever you need!

Congrats! I'll add you to the list on Monday!
The name Liliana was number forty-something on the top names list--Lily was number 10. I can't believe Liliana was on there! But I like our spelling better!

Valerie:
Sending good thoughts and prayers you're way.

Okay, Sarah and I need some help.

We need our nesting urge to go forth and make us want to do laundry and clean the bathroom.

Any help?


I have the last load of Lucas' clothes in the dryer! Sleep positioner, too. Wohooo!


...I really need to pack my hospital bag.

lol Maybe if we keep thinking about it...

The storage cube thing in Lucas's room...is that the one from Target? We registered for it too! And I noticed someone got it for us...we're just hoping it fits in the room. My super awesome glider takes up a lot of space! lol
