Reshma - Glad everything is going well. I have several friends who had children at 38 (seems to be the lucky number) and none had any complications.

Debbie, I can't wait to see those beautiful babies tomorrow!!! I hope you don't get yelled at either lol. This whole gaining weight this fast seems so weird to me and I feel like I am never going to take it off. I feel like I am getting huge already. I have a feeling I will gain about 50 lbs. having two in there. Since I am only 5 feet and used to being in the 110-115 range, I am going to look like a waddling mamma duck. Hubby said to me tonight that I am starting to do the pregnant walk and he thought it was cute. We are planning on finding out what our babies are. I am so anxious!!!

Reshma, so glad to hear that everything is going well. I have a feeling I will go earlier too. Especially with twins. I agree with you on the screening. We are hopeful that everything will be okay tomorrow with that first screening but want both of these babies.

Jules...she isn't evil, she just likes to kick to let you know she is in there and can't wait to see you. I hope mine start kicking a lot real soon. Being 37, I felt good about what you said about the age thing and no complications. I figure under 40 is still good and safe. :)

I just want everything to be okay tomorrow...thank you for all of your positive thoughts, prayers and energy. love you girls! :) :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Yeah I know huh Julie..., my dad is such a sweet man. He kept saying that he would love to go if Greg ever couldn't. Today happens to be that day. My parents, along with Greg and I have been waiting for this for so long. My brother has 3 kids but is divorced and they have only had the opportunity to be pt grandparents so this is so huge for them. They are actually taking care of the buggers for the remaining months until summer once I return to school. Well I am off to my appt. I will post later this afternoon and let you guys know whatever I find out today. I can't believe this is my 5th u/s since the beginning of my pregnancy.

Jen...Yours will be soon! :)

You married a Greg too! My DH is Greg. Good luck at your appointment. My dad LOVES spending time with his grandchildren. They all LOVE him the most. He gives them horse rides, does these dorky agic tricks, swings them on a swing, takes them to the park - but him taking interest in my pregancy - that will never happen...

Well Ladies I am back from my OB appt. Thankfully I only gained 4 lbs so I did not get yelled at. I just have to keep it at this pace or slower. I do not want to gain more than 35-40 lbs. I got the results from all my blood tests and everything was normal except the cystic fibrosis but I already knew I was a carrier going in. They determined that last preganacy and DH was not a carrier so we are also good on that note. They were able to hear babies heartbeat with a doppler. It was 160 and she said 140-170 was normal. I was almost sad that I did not get to see the baby on u/s. Now can't wait till June 11 for anatomy check u/s.

Lisa -Hope you are enjoying the picture you are seeing of your beautiful babies.

Anyone else getting ready for 1st trimester screening?

Lyly- Only 4 more days you must be so excited and anxious.

JasJulesMom - so glad your appointment went well.

JasJules-

How much weight have you gained so far? You said total you only want to gain 35-40 lbs? Hmmm, seems like i gained 65 with my daughter, and you are only in your 14th week...

I think you may end up going over your goal. Just be healthy and dont limit cravings. I believe wholeheartedly that is your body telling you you need something from that craving.

I wish you the sincere best! Take care. Glad your appointment went fine! YAY.

Lyly- I am getting anxious for you! Exciting!

JenFrancis - I gained about 50 with my first and I have no regrets. I took most of it off from brest feeding.
I will probably gain about 60 with this - but hope to take it off too.

Well here is the problem. I gained 76 with my son and I was 25, it took 2 years to get it all off. I gained 82 with my daughter and I was 32. I only got 40 off. So I am starting this pregnancy 40 lbs heavier than with dd and 55 lbs heavier with ds. I have gained 10 lbs so far. I did not have any morning sickness at all so I have never felt compelled not to eat. OB said to try and gain no more than 4-5 lbs in next 6 weeks. She said after 20 weeks there is really nothing I can do and just be healthy. That is what I intend to do. If I only gain 5 more lbs between now and 20 weeks, I will leave myself 20-25 lbs for the final 20 weeks. I just do not want to end up heavier than I was with dd. I was so uncomfortable by the end and she was 9lbs 15oz.

I have another question for everyone. Has anyone started purchasing things for the baby yet?

Since this is my third pregnancy I really do not expect a shower. That being said I want to start buying a little at a time, but I do not feel comfortable buying anything yet.

When do you girls think is a good time to start?
