Banegas Babies

I know that I haven't written, but I have been busy! I had the twins at 36 weeks:) They were born healthy!!!
Xander Justice was 6.10 lbs and Xylia Marie was 6.6 lbs. They were both 18 inches long! Pretty good size twins for 1 month early huh? Xylia was having some breathing problems, but I got her after a couple of hours! I did go into pre-term labor once, at 33 weeks but they stopped it, I did get the steroid shots for the twins lungs though... Here they are!!!
 Me getting BIGGGGGG... I was 34 weeks here.
 Xylia and Xander
Xan the Man and CeeCee
 I can't believe I have 4 kids! I love them

Cervical Cerclage and Gestational Diabetes

Day 0: I went in to the hospital with both of the kiddos in tow… I had them stay up all night so they would be tired:) I got a room around 0815 and then was prepped… I didn't go in for the operation until about 1030. I was wheeled upstairs and straight in to the OR. I remember being put onto the OR table and my arms being put out like a cross onto lil jelly like pads for my wrists. It was now time to put my legs into the slings. I looked over and saw someone putting meds into my hand… And then… looking back at the lady who was struggling to get my left leg secure… That was it. LIGHTS OUT. The rest of the day was really a daze. I slept through the WHOLE day and Night. I remember seeing Gustavo…He helped me up to the bathroom and I got sick. I remember Mimi sleeping… And DJ leaving… But not much else…

If you DO NOT know what a cervical cerclage is… It is where they stitch up your cervix. It will help prevent pre-term labor.

Day 1: Not too much was going on. I moved rooms and had a little bit of pain.
Day 2: Same… None eventful
Day 3: I had to FAST… I was going to have a the Glucose Tolerance Test. I was woken at 0530… My blood was taken…. I drank the NASTY orange drink… And again my blood was taken. Again and Again! The doctor said if everything was good, I could leave… Well- That wasn't the case. My first results were high… And my second results were 12.5… I had to had insulin and begin having my blood drawn SEVERAL more times! I swear… If you were to look at my veins… You would feel SO Sorry for me! It looks like track marks! They were doing a sugar profile to ensure I was given the right dosage of insulin. That night, I gave myself my FIRST insulin shot and learned how to use the glucometer… (Maybe that is what it is called)
Day 4: I finally get to leave the HOSPITAL!!! YAY!

How do I feel about having Gestational Diabetes???
I am upset. It sucks. I have to poke my finger 6 times a day and take two insulin shots. I do not to eat any AWESOME ice cream… I have to CHART my pricks for my doctor… And honestly- I just feel crumby! One great thing… We got to see another U/S before I left the hospital and… Our shy baby… Looks like a GIRL! The doctor said he isn't for certain… But… It looks like we have a B/G set! I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow for an injection and then another appt on the following Saturday.

More to follow...

Will there be more Menopur?

Tonight I will be getting my LAST dose of Menopur. (I hope!) I was directed to have 3 ampules: 1 water for 7 nights.

I am hoping that at my doctor's appt, that my eggs are going to be plenty and 20mm!
I have to get my blood drawn and then a scan.

How am I feeling???
- Emotional
- A bit bitchy
- Bloated
- Hot Flashes
- Soreness (My thighs)
- Head aches
- People piss me off... QUICKLY (Not the kids... Just the adults!)
- Cramping
- Some short SHARP pains in my stomach
- Lower back pain
- Tired

I have NO idea what they will say to me tomorrow. I just hope that it is good news! I hope that my doctor gives me some kind of answers.

Generally when I ask questions... My doctor always says, "Let's get this step done first"
***IT DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!***
I am glad that things are SLOWLY progressing!

Everyone in the house is waiting for this to happen! I already feel pregnant!
