Re: When to Stop Sending Photos as a Christman Card

I probably won't do them anymore once the kids are all in high school.

Re: Paging Skippy and any other parents of multiples

Thanks Laila. If I already had an OB, I definitely would start with him/her. I don't particularly want to overmedicalize everything and be treated as a high risk case. I think that might stress me out more. It's hard though because I don't really want to start with a new OB I'm not really familiar ...

Re: Paging Skippy and any other parents of multiples

If anyone is checking this thread, I have a question for you. I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow with twins, and so far, things are looking good (although I still feel really cautious and pretty much in shock about the twins part). The OB/GYN I used when pregnant with my son no longer does OB, so I need to f...

Re: unpopular jewelry opinions

Me too, Yssie. I'd rather have a small diamond in a spectacular ring than a larger diamond in a solitaire.

I thought of some more: I like peg head settings, and I like cluster halos/rings.

Me too! The wider the better IMO.

My unpopular opinions: I absolutely lurve Blue Nile and think they are great quality and value. I love J and K colored diamonds, and I prefer to buy Si1 to Si2 clarity to get the most bang for my buck.

Re: Paging Skippy and any other parents of multiples

Hi Skippy, thanks so much!! They will be 8 weeks tomorrow, so I'm really hoping they will turn a corner soon. It's been rough taking care of two crying, fussy newborns, esp since I have my 4 year old and my 2 year old as well. Once they start sleeping longer at night, it will be so much more enjoyab...

I went to my beloved Target. They had 40% off all clothing, so I got a bunch of tops and pants for the kids. Each item was like $3 or $4!

Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

Oh MP, congrats!!!! Welcome to the twins club! Isn't it crazy to go through infertility and then end up with not one but two more?! I know it's still early, but I have a very good feeling for you. Take care of those little ones and congratulations! :D

Re: Paging Skippy and any other parents of multiples

Hi everyone!

My b/g twins are 6 weeks now and still not sleeping very well at night. They still wake up every 3 hours or so. When did your twins start sleeping longer stretches at night? My twins were 3.5 weeks early if that makes a difference. Thanks!

Re: Newborn vs. Toddler stage -which is harder? REPRISE

By the way, the newborn stage was much more stressful for me than toddler stage so far. It was definitely the lack of sleep (I couldn't sleep even when I had a chance for some reason), and my son was just a very unhappy person for his first 8-10 weeks and was dealing with reflux and a possible dair...

Re: How many pets do you have in bed?

No pets in bed, period. I have twin newborns, so I already don't get a lot of sleep as it is. I don't want any pets in the bed to disturb my piddly three hours of sleep! Plus I would not be happy with kitty fur on our sheets. I love pets, but they can sleep in their own little spot.
