    aww Im glad to hear your lil ones are doing good!

    I am still just waitin. I have a feeling he is going to be bigger than my boys were. I didnt think I could be in any more pain, well yesterday I nearly fell flat on my face and while I managed to protect my belly I BADLY hurt my wrist and knee. I felt so dumb! lol. It wasnt icy or anything, my ankle just rolled on some uneven sidewalk while I was out shopping and my massive frontal weight pulled me straight down. Since friday my feet have been really swollen, not sure why! Aside from gettin groceries and makin df do some cleaning I am all ready to go! It sure is nice to have a set date. lol. Well be headed to the hospital 4am thursday and Ill be bringing my laptop so I can update when Im settled into my room after. [​IMG]

    (reminds me! i have to update my ticker!)

    Nikki and Mel, great to hear your little ones are great sleepers [​IMG] Kasper is doing good in teh sleep department now....better than teh first few days at home. He was up like 2-3 hours the 2nd night home (hiccups, burping him, calming him down, etc., the whole shabang). Tmorrow he'll be 2 weeks actually [​IMG] Well, now he's sleeping through the night, except for waking up to be nursed. We put him in his crib at 10pm and he gets up between 2-3 and then between 5-6, and goes right back to bed after feedings. Then he gets up at like 9am. He had his first check-up 6 days after being born and he gained all his weight back! So, then he was 9 pounds! And he eats ALL THE TIME, so now, omg, at 2 weeks, he MUST be at least 10 pounds or close to it lol But I gotta say having a newborn around Christmas time is craziness...it's a LOT going on....especially since i got my inlaws staying with us.

    TDG, omg, sorry about that fall! I know you are, but BE CAREFUL [​IMG] Wow, thursday is the DAYYYYYYY! YAYYYY!!!

    TDG, wouldn't that be CRAZY if they pull out two babies, and not just one. omg. I know it's almost impossible since you've had scans and all that, but still, I'm not going to be bowled over with surprise if you update on Thursday that you have twins! If not twins, I bet this babe will be really squirmy and jerky the first couple of weeks. That sounded weird--active, I bet this baby will be active.

    jasmine---Im sure trying!! lol. I still cant believe I did that! Im really suffering for it but Im sooo glad I didnt land on my belly!

    desert--LMAO! I tell ya what I sure wont be very suprised if theres two in there either. I will be shocked if he is small and quiet tho! He will surely be big and "squirmy and jerky"! :p

    Ohh...and I wanted to tell you ladies what I put in my stocking..PRUNES! LOL!!! I got those sunsweet ones prunes(they are really good!) and put them in my stocking. I am SO scared of getting constipated again like I was after I had Evan so Im eating all kinds of poop softners! lol

    LOL!!! Nice! It's a smart idea though, you where constipated after the surgery? OMG! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    PS Sorry about the fall! Glad little man is ok though, I almost did the same thing off the curb at walmart about a week ago, couldn't imagine actually falling though. Better just sit tight for the next day girly!

    Yes Ash! The first poo is awful enough without being badly constipated! SOOO painful! I had to get a sopository(sp) stuck up my bum..talk about awkward! I know thats the nurses job but that didnt make it any more fun for either of us!! LOL.

    hahahaha, omg, prunes?? Well, the first poo was WAY scary for me too...before my first poo I remember I told my MIL I wasn't going to eat because I was too scared to poo. I had a normal birth, if I had c-section surgery, damn right I'd be eating prunes and taking about 15 Colaces per day!!

    I always get intestinal stasis from anesthesia/surgery so I generally can't poop for upwards of two weeks after surgery and can't really keep food down either. It's awful! I lucked out my last surgery though. They gave me a ton of meds for all the horrible nausea I usually get, plus substituted one of the typical components of the anesthesia and I was able to poop at 8 days postop. I was so excited! LOL

    Good luck to you tommorrow TDG!! Can't wait to see pics. I will be eagerly checking on my phone from work on FB and here for the news!!

    Mel, I was terrified of pooping after birth too. Between the stitches, and hemorrhoids, pooping was awful. The nurses gave me colace in the hospital, and I continued taking them for many weeks at home. I hate prunes, so that wasnt an option. I think constipation is worse with a csection due to the pain meds, and the fact that surgery tends to slow down the bowels. Ugh!

    Hope it isn't much of an issue for you TDG.

    Some of the meds they gave me caused constipation, I remember thinking that was abit stupid! But I think it was the stitches that terrified me when it came to going, scared the life out of me! lol!

    Good luck TDG!!! Can't wait to hear all about it [​IMG]
