long time no post

it just occurred to me that i haven't posted in a long time. school started last week and i just haven't had time. everything is going well thankfully. i'm almost at 24 weeks. the boys seem to be right on target. saw their little heart beats this morning when i went in for another unscheduled appointment. i woke with a rash...i couldn't see it but i could feel it. i tried putting a mirror between my legs but i couldn't see over the belly. anyway, the doctor had no idea what it is so she called another doctor in to take a look. that's not very reassuring. she gave me a prescription but how do they treat something without knowing what it is? i think i insulted my doctor.

anyway, i'm up to 150 pounds...that's up about 30 pounds from my pre-pregnancy days. i can't believe the scale when i get on it but i couldn't care less. it's shocking but not upsetting. i'll take it off. the other thing is that my nose continues to bleed. who knew all this happens with pregnancy?

my biggest concern is that i'm on my feet all day with my job. i feel so guilty that i might be hurting the babies or bringing on a premature delivery. at the same time, i have to do my job. but my babies should come first...there's the guilt. uggh.

that's really all.

I hope the medicine helps things, but I understand what you mean. Nothing like filling the patient (you) with some confidence on their part, huh? Hopefully it'll be gone in a flash, and I'm happy to hear that the babies are doing good. Congrats on the 24 week mark!

Hope the rash gets better, and don't worry about the weight, its only for a few months.

I'm sorry to hear about your rash and hope it clears up soon for you. I'm glad the boys are doing well. As for the weight, I gained about 48 lbs. in my pregnancy and I only had one baby. Have no fear - it's all for a good cause.

Hope the rash is better soon. Congrats on 24 weeks! I totally get the shock value of stepping on the scale. It really just becomes a number at some point.
