29 weeks

…and more bed rest. This time for good. At my Thursday perinatologist appointment I had my cervix and fluids checked. Fluids are great. The girls were swimming around in there, getting too big to even get a proper ultrasound picture. Cervix, however, was not good. It is effacing. It has halved in length in the last two weeks. I am 50% effaced. My perinatologist was not pleased about this. Effacing is what my cervix should do when I am getting ready …

The Shower

Though I was put on bed rest last Thursday night, my OB cleared me to go to my own baby shower – from a wheelchair. Given that I was expecting almost 100 people that Saturday night, this was pretty important to me. As to how my baby shower got so enormous? It was a mixture of things. I decided from the get-go that, as long as Rob was in, I wanted it to be coed. I know there can be …

Part IV

At some point during my first trimester my mom said to me, casually, you probably won’t be able to work full time for the next five years or so. I was still reeling from being pregnant with twins, I hadn’t really considered what would happen after the girls were born. I was just content in knowing that I wouldn’t be working while I was pregnant. My OB had already told me the latest he wanted me to work was 20-22 weeks. …

24 weeks

Holy hell, I am uncomfortable. I know that in comparing this week to last week I am not that much larger, but this week has brought a whole bunch of new limits on what I can do comfortably. Driving is now uncomfortable. As is most sitting. And eating. Rolling over takes more effort than I ever thought possible. Literally, I am asking Rob to turn off the lights or hand me things while I am in bed because, depending on where the girls …

25 weeks

25 weeks and my get up and go is… gone. I am so tired. And so.. large. However, the tiredness could be due to the fact that I went to Yosemite this weekend. I went on a “hike” and didn’t sleep well in a different bed. I also got covered in mosquito bites. More on our trip in my Thursday post. This week I finish my child development class and I have three weeks of nothing, unless you count doctor appointments. …

Part III

Part I, Part II I spent a good two weeks “processing,” or whatever that means. What no one tells you about miscarrying is that it isn’t like, oh, the baby didn’t make it, the end. Nope. As I wrote about before, I had to have a D&C. My body hadn’t recognized that the baby was no longer viable, so it needed some helping along.  It actually was probably better that way for me, as it gave me something to physically …

Calvin Crest, Part I

IMG_3649 Last weekend Rob, Jill, Natalie, and I headed up to Yosemite Valley. Destination: Calvin Crest. I started going to Calvin Crest the summer after fourth grade. I went every summer until I was 17, for increasingly long periods of time. The summer after my first year of college I spent my whole summer there, on staff. There are two places that I hold sacred, Whitworth and Calvin Crest. Without Calvin Crest there would have been no Whitworth. Without Whitworth …

19 weeks

19 weeks and I am feeling… large. Gone are the days where people wonder whether I am pregnant or eating too many cheeseburgers. It is clear. I had a woman rub my stomach in Costco yesterday.  She seemed nice though and was 60+ so she gets a pass. The girls are the size of grapefruits this week and kicking away.  Still no feeling on the outside, which is a bummer for Rob, but plenty on the inside.  I have gotten …

20 weeks

20 weeks and I have no comments on how large I am. I have lost perspective. I feel big, but not that big.  Sometimes I think, ooh sure, I can fit through that door that is almost closed. No I can’t. I look in the mirror and think, definitely pregnant, but not scary pregnant.  I am sure that is to come as I have at least 3 months to go. 2o weeks meant an anatomy scan with the perinatologist. An anatomy scan …
