Our family has grown – meet the new additions

They say a picture paints a thousand words.  As I haven’t yet got myself coherent enough to put together a wordy post for you I thought I’d share some pictures instead. On October 18th, 2011 we welcomed our newest additions into the world.  First came Elizabeth Florence at 3.37pm weighing in at 5lbs 12oz and […]

The twins are here!

Twin one arrived by caesarean section at 3.37pm on Tuesday, 18th October 2011. Quite unexpectedly twin one was a girl! SHe weighed in at 5lbs 12oz and is beautiful! We named her Elizabeth Florence. Twin two came along less than a minute later, weighing in at 5lbs 2oz. Another girl! We named her Anna Teresa […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 35 weeks 5 days

Every time I sit at the laptop to write another Twin Pregnancy Diary entry I wonder if it might just be the last time.  As I sit uncomfortably in my chair at my desk I also wonder how on earth I am still writing it.  Could it possibly be much longer?  I have given up […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 35 weeks 2 days

Earlier on during this pregnancy I did wonder whether I would still be writing this diary at this stage. To reach 35 weeks of a twin pregnancy is quite an achievement I believe. The babies are growing strong and healthy with every extra day and that is the main thing.  However, I am beginning to […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 34 weeks 4 days

Twin Pregnancy 34 weeks I apologise for the lateness of this week’s update.  Remember I told you about sickness in a large family?  Well, I got it.   Like it hadn’t been enough being hit with one thing after another the last few weeks, I became even more tired and lethargic than normal, or rather […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 33 weeks 2 days

Twin Pregnancy 33 weeks It’s official.  I have had enough. The last couple of weeks have been hard going.  I don’t like hard going.  I like an easy life.  I like easy pregnancies, which thankfully I have pretty much always had.  I know, I’ve been spoilt. I don’t like being so big.  I don’t like […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 32 weeks 5 days

. This morning was the first one in the last six days that I haven’t woken with a headache. Three and a half hours later and I can feel it starting up now. Still, at least I had a little respite. I have been prescribed codeine to help with the headaches but I don’t want […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 32 weeks 2 days

32 week twin pregnancy The last few weeks of this pregnancy are snowballing symptom-wise.  The tiredness is becoming chronic now, yet with various things going on resting daily isn’t always possible.  I’m taking snatches of the day to lie down on the sofa in the midst of toys and chatter and children.  The tiredness takes […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 31 weeks 4 days

. The appointment with the midwife went well yesterday. I like getting the first appointment of the day as it means I don’t need to worry so much about getting a parking space for the minibus. It is funny, the things I think about for the simplest of reasons. Another example is travelling a new […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 31 weeks 2 days

. 31 week twin pregnancy I am feeling a mixture of emotions this week.  On the one hand, I can’t believe how quickly this pregnancy has flown by.  It seems such a short time ago since discovering I was pregnant again, and then of course we embarked once again on the rollercoaster of hope and […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 30 weeks 2 days

. Twin Pregnancy 30 weeks There seems to be something about hitting the “30-somethings” that seems to get my brain into thinking of the countdown.  Perhaps it’s the sudden increase in discomfort over the last week or two but I’m wondering how on earth I am going to make it another eight weeks.  It seems […]

Twin Pregnancy Diary – 29 weeks 4 days

I went along to the hospital to see my consultant following last week’s growth scan for the twins.  As always, finding a parking space was a joy except it wasn’t and the whole fuss and bother of waiting and looking for a place to leave the car took longer than my journey to the hospital. […]
