    I had SROM ( waters broke) but they had been threatening to come for a week, was having some contractions, they did an internal and I was fully effaced, just tried to hang on a little longer, was trying for 34 weeks. Mine was all back pain, that was relieved by rocking, as aparantly thats one of the first signs of prem labour.

    Trish,

    I actually went in twice. The first time the contractions were uncomfortable but quite regular so I was given steroids for babies lungs and flown to Perth to King Edward Hospital. After they managed to stop contractions using Nifedipine, I was discharged and I had to stay in the metro area. Exactly a later I went in again and these contractions really knocked me around. They were coming every 3-5 mins and really really hurt. Both bubs were fine and again my waters stayed intact and we managed to stop labour.

    Since then I have been fine just a bit of tightening every now and then. Nothing serious though. I am aiming at 34 weeks and every week thereafter is a bonus!!!
    If your tightening gets any worse or regular, definately go in. Your doctor would encourage you to.

    Vanita, I am dreading my waters breaking. I just want to go in at 36 wks and have them, I dont want any drama. Its too hard emotionally. When I thought they were coming at 27 wks I nearly died. It was awful.

    Love Kel

    Thanks Kel - I am so glad you bubs are still inside where they belong .. it is so stressful worrying ...

    The tightening isn't painful and not regular just I definately noticed it has bumped up in numbers times per day since yesterday - even overnight I noticed a few times when I woke or went to pee ? :-k
    maybe will call hospital tomorrow and ask midwives ?

    I have felt very hour or so and maybe a few times an hour over the day- it just goes tight ... not sure what is normal though - did ask someone and they said everyone gets it but more so with twins - it is uterus contracting to increase blood flow ? or something like that

    Maybe I am just more paranoid too and noticing it more - will write it down from now on to see there is a pattern /regular

    Trish,

    I find that when I sit down after doing things around the house that my uterus contracts afew times and also when I get up at night to go to the loo. I just think that its from the strain. Our bodies are under enormous pressure. Like my doc said "You werent designed to carry two!!" and I really believe this is true!!! Keep an eye on it and see how you go

    Love Kel

    Trish,

    Well my best friends engagement party is tonight so I have been flat out helping her get organised! I should'nt be doing as much as I am but she is pretty special to me so I dont mind. I had a shocking sleep last night. I woke up a hundred times and tossed and turned. This has been going on for ages now. I wonder if its nature waking me up in preparation for when the babies come.

    My husband does fly in / fly out work so Easter for us this year will be quiet as he is away. Never mind I will enjoy a champagne breakfast at best friends tomorrow (minus the champagne) and just relax relax relax!!!

    Love Kel

    Kel - LOL -I think so - like the toilet trips ... very few hours ... nature is preparing us just so we don't get a rude shock when babies come.

    Hope you have a lovely night and let them wait on you ... you must be huge now (hope you're not offended).

    I agree relax, relax, and relax .. don't spend more than 2 hrs at a time on your feet I was told ... at least one hour rest in between.

    Trish,

    No I'm not offended!!LOL! I'll be the first to admit that my belly is massive. Although I seem to have lost weight everywhere else. I have not put on any weight on my bum or legs, arms or anywhere. Which is great as I was so scared I would end up like an elephant!!!!

    What about you?

    I feel great and yes I will enjoy tonight! She is my bestest friend ever and I am so so happy for her!

    Love Kel

    Hi Trish,

    I did read the Birth Announcements. How exciting for Chris!!! I cant believe that I am 32 weeks now. I feel like I am so close now!!!

    The party was great. We had a great night but later on Mia and I got a nasty virus and we ended up vomiting all day Sunday. I was so worried about the babies but they are fine.

    How are you going???

    Love Kel

    Gosh I can't believe that i have been "allocated" some time to get onto the computer! It's been so long that I had even forgotten my password....just as well I write these things down!

    Hope all is going well with everyone. Just a brief update from this end.

    Both Joshua & Jazmina are doing fine. I can't believe that they will be 12 weeks tomorrow!!! How time flies. Feeding is still up and down, mainly 3 hourly, but that is pretty standard with bf anyway. We have had a couple of 4 hours but nothing consistant, so I'm not cheering yet hehe.

    Thye are both stacking on the weight and have hit 4 kg =D> this is a major weight off my mind as Jack was forever in 0000, these guys are overtaking him, and good news is I get to do more baby shopping!

    When they were 7 weeks old, they both had to be operated on (do they have to do EVERYTHING in pairs?) due to both having inguinal hernias which are life threatening if left untreated. We were operated on the day after seeing the paed surgeon, and it was on a Saturday. Apparently it is common in prems. While the surgeon was in there she happened to notice something amiss with Jaz's right ovary and did a biopsy which later come back clear (thank god) she was going to speak to a collegue about it but as we havn't heard anything, we are guessing it isn't sinister.

    Jack is loving being a big brother and is (surprisingly) a big help (sometimes) for some reason he is obsessed with their dummies (he was deprived) and he can tell them apart even when I try and trick him by putting them in the some color grosuits with hats on (Jaz has more hair)

    I think thats about it. I'm pretty tired most of the time, but am trying to get out at least once a day even if only for a 15 minute walk down the driveway and back.

    Can one of you kind mods also please update my details.

    Hi Tam

    Trish, you look as though you are travelling well.

    Declan and Rylee are good. I am in te process of updating their website.

    I was bf up unitl this week as they are not sucking well enough to stimulate my breasts, so we have just moved to bottle feeding and they are taking 180mls which is huge for them. Rylee is 4.5 kg and Declan 5.1 kg. So doing well but would like them to be putting on a little more weight.

    In addition we have all been sick with head colds, ten the babies got oral thrush, which gave me nipple trush, which then gave me mastitis.

    I also started back at work last week, for 4 days a week, 20 hours. I amin the office Mon and Wed and work from home Tues and Thurs. We have a nanny looking after the babes.

    So that is it in a nutshell

    Tam

    that's fantastic you BF for over 3 months - bottlefed babes still do amazingly well. I am looking forward to seeing the updates of yout gorgeous babes.

    I hope you are all well now.

    Wow on going back to work - was it hard to find to a Nanny ?

    What kind of pram do you have ? LOL I will be asking everyone now !

    What is the best piece of equipment for a twin mum ? (I know an extra pair of hands would be most useful)

    What wouldn't you buy again ?

    Trish,
    the best piece of equipment is a good bouncer. Not these new fandangled things but an old fashioned net bouncer. You can get them at toys r us for about $35 had one 4 the big twins and am sending David to get one 4 these guys too. If the babes are too small first up, roll a towel up and put it under their bums!
