An update of the momumental kind (at least, for me).
I posted two weeks ago about how shocked and scared my fiance and I were to find out I was pregnant, just five months after having fraternal twin girls. I can't tell you guys how reassuring it was to hear how others have done it, survived and maintained sanity!
The kicker is, and I just got the call from the doctors office last night after getting the results from the lab, that my doctor is positive I am pregnant with twins
. My hormone level should've been around 808; it was 1614. Double, almost exactly, of what it should've been.
So, let's recap the situation: We're finally acclimated to living in our two bedroom condo we just bought three months ago, we have five month old twin girls and are now expecting twins in late May, when the girls will be a little over 12 months old.
Anyone out there going through or gone through -this-?

Retiring, giving away parts of my website.
I started my website http://www.a-mommys-world.com
in 1998. It is now a huge website and also a huge mommy chat too at http://www.openmommychat.com
It is all connected and has more than 10,000 members.
Basically what is happening is I need to be the behind the scenes person from now on. I want more time to myself and want to give back to the people basically. For all the great moms who helped me build the site I want to give back.
I want to not have to be on top of it all now, I want to literally GIVE AWAY parts so that others can have their own mommy site and chat room if they want as well without all the work, costs, hassle, and tech work.
I have over 100 chat rooms and over 500 message boards within the chat and forums on my website.
Basically all you need to do is stake claim to what you want and if someone has not already claimed it, it is yours, for good.
You can put in your request for any changes and additins you want and I or my staff will get that done in 3-7 days. In the mean time you can get started and also feel more than free to bring in your members or invite people to your boards or chat.
No costs, no hassle. I just need to do this because I want to be able to have more fun and less work online.
I want to give myself the oppertunity to explore new thiings in life and start new projects.
However I have built a huge website and refuse to just shut down on the thousands of members who love and rely on it.
So there you have it. If you want your own mommy site without the work, stake your claim.http://www.a-mommys-world.com/

Moms, need your help...well more like your suggestions
What would be some good topics of discussion to add to my twins & multiples moms board?http://www.a-mommys-world.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=755
My twins are only 5 months.. so I do not know too many topics to add to it yet. Some of the moms have twins that are grade school and middle school aged as well as those with babies, toddlers, and even a couple with high school aged Twins. There are a few pregnant with twins as well.
I wanted to add some good topics some geared towards the moms of baby and toddler twins as well as ones with preschool, grade school, middle and high school aged twins.
What all would you suggest to add?
*just so you do not ask - No I am not trying to spam you or anything. I just want some topic suggestions.

Hi! I have 18 mo. old twins and I was wondering what sorts of activities you do for "play time" at home. We do some play groups where we live a few days a week, which are basically "open run" but those last only about an hour...leaving me with hours and hours in a day to fill with fun...learning activities for my twins.
The thing is, I think they are a little behind on learning things like their colors, #'s, animal sounds, etc.-- and I was wondering what all of you do for fun activities. I'm not super concerned, but, we get bored just sitting around in the play room, you know? I'd love to hear your ideas!

I realize I have to call around, but if anyone can help me right now, I'd appreciate it:
Due to a current situation, I am planning on putting my 15 mo. old twins in daycare (almost 16 mo. old)--
I realize there are differences in in costs between centers and home daycares, etc.
I was wondering if anyone in the MN/WI area (primarily MN) can give me some estimates of what they pay, or what they think daycare might cost for my twins so I am not too shocked when I call around!!?! :) Thanks!

New LJ User
Hey Everyone. I am a 23 year old mother living in tucson, arizona. I am happily married, going on 2 years now. My hubby is my high school sweetheart, and so far we have been together for more then 6 years now.
Currently we have a 4 1/2 year old son, going on 5 in july. We also are expecting another in... Well 1 and a half days! I am being induced on may 8th, and we are extremely nervous, excited, anxious.
Added to that anxiousness, is the fact that we chose not to find out what gender the baby is until it's here! We really can't wait.So far I am a stay at home mom, and could always use a few new like minded friends to talk to, so please feel free to message me. Especially if your mom's, stay at home homes, parents, expecting mom's, and all that good stuff. Can't wait to meet some new friends!

I had a question.. how many of you have had twins via natural/vaginal delivery and how many by c-section? I'm due June of 2006 and am nervous about the possibility of a c-section.

Questions for my fellow twin mommy's
what is your twinkies sleep pattern like.
If you have/had sleeping issues, what did you do?
What's your typical feeding like? What did you start them on?
This would be a huge help for me.
Thanks! Current Mood: busy

Bla Bla... Life as I know it..
So I broke down and decided to recruit some help to clean the house before all my company (all 11 people) decides to show up starting tuesday. So I called my sis in laws housekeeper and scheduled her. I think that it is strange that I am like oooo the house keeper is coming so I better clean up before she gets here. LOL It is like that commercial that the little girl says to her mom... Mommy what are you doing... Mommy says the dishes... Little girl... I thought that the dishwasher does the dishes... Mommy... It does. little girl looks confused. Yeah I am that crazy I guess.
I just have crap everywhere and I am trying to do 50000 things at once. Like, Put together that DAMN changing table that my parents bought me a month ago that Aaron said he would put together. And, 500 loads of laundry. Are there such things as laundry fairies? I would put one on salary and treat her as gold if I could get me one of those. Then I have to rearrange the living room furniture since I had the carpets cleaned and i dont currently have a functioning living room. Change all the bedding... oops there goes more laundry, straighten and decorate the Nursery so people dont think that my nursery is totally ghetto...
you name it i need to do it and i am going on day three without a full on shower. I am like on month three with out a full on leg shave... no worries thought i think I hit the pits with a razor somewhere between more dang pictures at the mall and Friday mornings 2am screamfest that the girls so graciously threw me. Or I might have dreamed it. either way, I need an all around grooming that no one can do for me.
I would be happy with someone comeing to the house and watching the girls for half an hour so I could remember my name and who i am and how to brush my hair. that is if I still have hair.
I think that my hormones are all helping out with that since it is all falling out. I heard that it was this thing that happened after you have a baby. I never thought this bad. So I have less hair on my head now than ever before, hair other places I DONT want I think my hair that fell off my head landed on my legs, crotch, and underarms.
I am stressed to the max, sleep deprived, my husband wants to know when I will get my labito back, and I am trying to get all these dang 300 christmas cards prepared to go out. Welcome to mothherhood.
About that LAbito...yeah so I wanted to scream at my husband, when you pitch in and do what you at least agreed to, let me have a 10 minute shower where no one utters a word or thought my way and I might get 4 hours of consecutive sleep you MIGHT THEN JUST MIGHT GET A PIECE. But I only slightly mutter a few words in response to his corner of the house as I trot off to go change the laundry.
By the way... I think I am fatter. Like in 2 days fatter... either that or i have been remembering to put in my contacts. In which case I need to remember NOT to put them in. I think right now... IGNORANCE IS TRUELY BLISS. Maybe I will hit the gym some time in 2009 or later.
Anyhow, off to fold laundry I go as I can hear snoring from our bedroom. I hope that he is sleeping REALLY good. YOu know it is sooooo important he sleep good.. On a side note.
::::::::: Things Aaron Said today that I couldnt Believe came out his mouth ::::::::::
1. " SO, when do you think you will want to have sex more that once a month?"
2. " You know what I am going to focus on really hard this week honey.....
catching up on my sleep."
( I seriously thought that he was going to say work on the house)
3. " I think that you need to set a schedule so that you and the babies are happier. They just need some disipline in their life."
( Right...so can you see explaining to a 4 month old... we cant change your diaper now because it is time for bla bla. But after you eat in about 13 minutes I can change it then because it will be time. heh..."
okay enough blabing... off to fold laundry at 1am. HAsta Current Mood: mischievous

Adventures in Twinsland
So... We went to the mall today and we had a family picture done. Yeah at one of those kiddie places where the employees make blubbering idiots of themselves to try to make children smile. Well the family picture is even more excrutiating. Mom and Dad have to sit there smiling for like 10 minutes while this poor person is making all these annoying noises at your children which you think my kid CANNOT be ammused by you, you FREAK! Then when they finally take the picture you and dad have been holding the smile so long and have become so annoyed by the lady your facial expression says... "yeah here are my twins, I am holding the other set of twins up my butt. Merry FREAKING Christmas." All the while other people are watching and saying SMILE MOM AND DAD>>> Then OOPS one or both twins werent looking. Or oops one was making their poopy face.. At that point you say I DONT CARE IF MY KID HAS THEIR POOPY FACE ON THE FRONT OF THE CHRISTMAS CARD. Then the lady says oh lets try one more... OH NO Projectile spit up on dad... oh the other is blowing bubbles where is the burp cloth! And then finally your husband looks at you like NO MORE OR ELSE, the girls are crying, the lady is making obsenely loud obnoxious noises 12" from your face to get your babies attention like they are going to stop screaming and all of a sudden smile and you say.. OKAY WE'RE DONE I THINK I LIKED THE LAST ONE YOU TOOK. The lady says that wasnt so bad now was it, what if you had another set of twins, he he? You try to make some form of a nice gesture inbetween an uh huh and a nu uh, Everyone exhales and then you order the pics and say I need a nap, shot of vodka, food, in no particular order, and can someone change my freakin diaper for once. Here's to another episode of fun in twinsland...
