There's an alarming increase in women having multiple babies at one time. What's causing this statistic to rise and what does it mean?
Eating right and gaining the recommended amount of weight is important in any pregnancy, but this is especially important when carrying more than one baby.
Today is November 15th, and I found out that I am pregnant with my fourth baby. I am not sure how far along I am, or even when I am due. I just know that I have a baby growing inside me and that my HCG levels are 84.
I went to my new OB today for my first prenatal appointment. Things went very well. I am very impressed with her and already like her a lot.
This has been quite the week. I had to start progesterone supplements because my levels were only at 12.5 last week. They gave me 200 mgs to take once a day. It really scared me and I was so afraid that I was going to lose the baby.
This past week has been amazing! It's starting to sink in that I am having twins. I'm really excited about it all. I feel so special that I get to have two babies at once.
With the holidays, this week has been a crazy one. I went to see my OB on Friday. It was awful! My appointment was supposed to be at 9:15 and she didn't come into the room to see me until 10:45.
It's been a better week emotionally. Health wise, its getting worse! Christmas Day, I threw up for the first time.
This week has been a quiet one. On Wednesday after my doctor appointment, I developed a pain in my side that lasted until Saturday. I'm not sure what it was, but it's gone now, and that's all I care about.
So far, this week has been okay. I'm still sneezing, but I've just gotten used to carrying a Kleenex with me all the time. I was having a problem with migraines, but my wonderful OB gave me a prescription for the pain...
