Well as the title says, it’s been a while! H & H are now 19 weeks and growing so fast (Henry is now 13lb 8oz and Heidi 13lb 5oz), Henry can now roll and they are finally sleeping better! Heidi goes from 7pm ish to 7am ish. Henry is still a little hit and miss, we always feed him at 10pm, sometimes he wakes once, but if we’re lucky he’ll go till 6/7ish! Getting more sleep makes a huge difference! Life as a mum of 3 is certainly hectic, but we’ve all adjusted well. Oscar loves his two siblings and…

Just when I’m feeling totally sleep deprived and like we’re getting nowhere, Heidi has just done some fab sleeping, 7.30pm until 3am! Tried to dream feed at 10pm but she wasn’t interested. It may be a one off but at least we’re going in the right direction. Now just need to get Henry doing the same…

The twins are now 4 weeks old and so far so good! The time is going so fast. Trying to capture it all is hard as I am so busy feeding, sterilising and washing! My mum has been fab, coming round everyday to help with cores and feeding. Trying to feed the babies together and it normally works, although a couple of times this week it hasn’t worked that way at night!! It’s hard to know what to do, do you wake the sleeping twin or leave them to sleep to encourage good sleeping habits?!? I’ve tried both and leaving…

I wanted to ensure I capture all the details of the birth of our twins as it was a lovely experience. I was induced on the Friday, although when I rang at 7.30am to see what time to come in and they told me they’d ring me back at lunchtime I was upset as thought it would end up behind delayed and I was so ready to have them out! We decided to go to McDonald’s for breakfast and then to Tesco for some last minute bits. As we were just about to leave the house I got a call…

Had our final scan yesterday and both babies estimated at 5lb 8oz, no wonder I feel so heavy!! Finally been given a date for induction Fri 1 Feb – hurrah! Can’t wait to meet them both and also get my body back! Feel so heavy and it hurts when the babies move as it’s clearly cramped in there for them. Looking forward to those first cuddles 🙂 Spending this weekend relaxing and eating out. Our last weekend as a threesome! J x

So my last post talked about how much I was struggling with the flu. Well the day after I wrote that post I ended up pulling a rib muscle with all the coughing, the pain was agony. Tried to rest but the day after started coughing again and it got worse. Was literally screaming and crying in agony. Simon panicked and rang NHS direct who told us to go straight to hospital so we had a mad dash to A&E! Got transferred to labour suite where they checked babies, took blood and gave me painkillers and antibiotics. Turns out having…

It’s been far too long since I last posted, I’m now 35 weeks. I think the main reason for lack of posts is that it has been a pretty straightforward pregnancy so far, no major aches, pains or complications. I’ve been having four weekly scans and everything is going well 🙂 I have a few bump pics, which I’ll try and add on when I get a bit of time. So, I’ve now finished work (I finished at 30 weeks – was v ready!), this week I’ve been full of flu so it’s been really tough, especially with having to…

I’m now 17 weeks and have started to feel normal again – hurrah!! Not feeling any definite movements yet, so hoping everything is okay. I’m sure it is, but I’m just a natural worrier! Watched the One Born Every Minute: Twins and Triplets episode this week and have to say that I was disappointed. All the cases were complicated and it was very sad. I was really hoping to see some positive experiences, after all not every multiple pregnancy is full of complications.
