I do usually take Claritin. I take it because I get hives when I am cold. Weird I know. But anyway, with it being spring I haven't had to take it as much. I think that is part of the reason my sinuses and allergies are so flared up!View Thread
Well I brought the tub of baby girl clothes home. I sorted through things and am passing on a few really stained up old onesies and some dresses. Most of the dresses I am passing on because they aren't for the correct season. I kept thinking I had tons of clothes but really I am not as set as I thought. For one baby I would be fine but not for two. So looks like I get to shop regardless! Wooo hoooo! Carters here I come! View Thread
Thanks girls!!!!! I feel better that I am not the only one that feels this way!
When I first found out about the twins I didn't want to do the matchy-matchy thing but now looking at adorable rompers and sleep/play outfits I totally do! And who knows how long they will let me do that. DD1 started getting picky about what she wore at two.View Thread
I have two girls ages three and 20mos. I bought new clothes when I was pregnant with DD1. Then 18mos later DD2 came along. I reused all of the babies clothes with her. Well I am pregnant with twin girls and to tell you the truth I am tired of looking at most of these clothes! DD1 was a spitter and as much as I stain treated the clothes they aren't that great and going through two girls already they are worn and getting old looking. Am I horrible if I don't use everything and buy part of a new wardrobe for the girls? I am not talking older girl clothes just the newborn, 0-3, and 3-6mos clothes. Everything else for the most part is in good shape. I will use a lot of the sleepers and of course all the white onesies and tshirts. But I am talking the little outfits. A Carters store just opened by the house and their clothes are absolutely adorable!!! Plus they are very reasonable. Much cheaper than shopping for Carter clothes are other stores. I can get outfits that match well together (but aren't identical) for the twins to wear. They have the nicest little sleep and play rompers. I never had these with the girls. I am thinking to myself I might go ahead and slurge a little with them because they are my last babies! I am not talking a whole new wardrobe but replacing maybe a third to half the stuff.
I can't say yes or no whether it's your baby. Only a DNA test will give you that answer. But if I were her I would get upset too if my boyfriend (who I planned on marrying) accused me of cheating as well. Not saying she didn't but just throwing that out there. Has she cheated on you recently? Besides being pregnant has she given you any reason to think she has cheated?
Birth control is NOT 100%! So don't assume it's not your baby just because you used condoms. I have known of women getting pregnant using condoms, the pill, IUDs, and just about every other birth control method out there. You only need to have sex once to get pregnant. Just because you only did it a few times or were busy that month doesn't mean much. She still ovulated that month despite being busy. She was still fertile even though you only did a few times.View Thread
Okay thank you! I just wanted to make sure I am not the only one that thinks that! I was thinking scrunchie too when I first saw it! I will just buy some cute girly material and a little batting and make it myself. I already have elastic and thread here at the house. I can probably do it for maybe $10.View Thread
I bought the babies bedding on Tuesday. I bought the girly Winnie the Pooh bedding from Wal-Mart. The store doesn't carry everything. I needed to buy the diaper stackers and extra sheets online. Well I just happen to click the link to check them out again. I just like to look at them every once in a while. But the prices were rolled back! I went ahead and got them so I wouldn't miss out. I was worried it was more like they would be going on clearance. I ended up saving almost $10! Of course I opted to have them shipped to me instead of going to the store so my savings is more like $5 but that's still $5 I am saving! View Thread
Oh girl I know how it feels. When DH and I got married we lived with his parents for a while. I moved in right before we got married actually. It was NOT my decision but I didn't have a lot of say at the time. But I had DS while we lived with them and we didn't move out until I basically said we're moving and went to the bank for a loan. DS was 6mos when we got out. DH would have been happy to stay forever. My MIL isn't as bad as yours but they were very intrusive - if I'm spelling that correctly. I set up house downstairs in their family room. It went from them knocking and me answering to them just knocking and walking on in. Never mind it was one huge room and I could be changing or whatever. My MIL never asked to go to appts or be there during the deliver. They were there while I was in labor with DS and they sat there and stared at me. Oh and ate food in front of me. Nice eh. But she was in my face a lot after he came home. She wasn't even a helper. She just stared and watched. It was annoying. At first I was breastfeeding and needed to pump after each feeding to build supply. Well she wouldn't go away and I had to pump in front of her. I got to the point I didn't care anymore. She was there when I was giving DS his first sponge bath even though I didn't want her to be. Then when we started solids they always were there. I don't have a lot of video in the beginning without them being there and hearing her annoying and shrill voice on my videos. I know it was their house but I tried to stay out of the way and wanted some privacy too. UGHView Thread
I met a mom at the park yesterday with twins. She told me a bottle prop pillow is a very good idea. So I had already seen this the other day and was already thinking of buying it. But I am looking at it and am thinking how hard would it be to just make it? It looks like one of those head support pillows with a piece of fabric covered elastic sew onto it. I am thinking I could make this much cheaper. What do you think????
