We are all gaining weight

Before I update you on my OB checkup today, I want to say a huge THANKS to all our Resolve advocates, who were on Capitol Hill today lobbying on our behalf. They have each been through a lot or they wouldn’t be there, yet they somehow are able to dig down and find the strength to speak up and speak out. It’s an amzing thing and I am proud of all of them. Especially close to me are Sunshine, who was there despite her recent tragic loss, and Riri, who has also been through hell and back. Now travle home safely, ladies. LOVE YOU!!


Ok, now we can go back to me me me πŸ™‚

OB today was good. Baby A weighs 3 lbs 7 oz, Baby B is 3 lbs 6 oz. Nice solid weights, and good that they are concordant (the same size). They don’t check for much else at these appts. but what they did see was all good.

I have gained about 25 pounds now, and it is all in the belly. I feel like I am carrying 25 pounds of buckshot in a fanny pack. Weird, but good. Am stopping work at 34 weeks — three weeks from now. Looking forward to this. I feel well — but so TIRED!

Birth plan is settled, and back to Plan A — scheduled C-section. Baby A is breech, B is transverse, and doc doesn’t think anyone has enough room in there to turn in any significant degree. Fine by me. I don’t really care how they get here, I just want them HERE, and am glad to have a plan in place.

Hubby is about to hand me a plate of dinner so must close. But am glad things are going well. So weird to just be a normal pg woman now, after all we have been through.

If you arte intested in more IF or ART stuff, go visit Kami at The Other Side. She’s got some good discussions re: donor egg going on. If I were less tired all the time and could breathe better, I’d join in more myself.



  1. The three of you are my heroes! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad to hear that the girls are gaining weight and thriving!

  2. Go buckshot girls! So glad they are doing well.

  3. “So weird to just be a normal pg woman now, after all we have been through.”

    I am LOVING it!

  4. Wow! How did I miss this update?! Glad things are still going so well, all things considered.

    When is your c-section scheduled for?

    Thanks for the shout out.

  5. Sooo… by my calculation you should be about done working… does that mean we get an UPDATE?!? πŸ™‚
