Ah the twin diet

20 pounds down, 20 to go. And then another 15 to get me back to my real starting weight...the weight I was before I started my mock cycle last March. I'm not too worried about it yet...I'm only a week postpartum!

The girls are still in the nursery, but they did pass their carseat tests yesterday! Hopefully they will both master eating their bottles without taking a snooze in the middle of it so they can get out of the nursery. And honestly, dont most newborns fall asleep while eating? I know mine always did. But I suppose the nurses know whats best. I cant even imagine how ready M&B are to go home!

I had to stop pumping a couple days ago. Pumps arent 'natural' so it really tore me up and caused some pretty yucky issues, so as much as I hated to stop, I really had to. I was super painfully engorged the last couple days but today seems to be better. The swelling has gone down and they arent as big or as hard as they were. I did the best I could though!

Today will be 45 and sunny so I am actually going to leave the house for once! We're going a little stir crazy here and this weather is nuts. We had snow yesterday and today will be relatively warm and sunny. So I plan to take advantage of it and get these boys out for some fresh air.

Ready for the weekend!

Wow that is some diet!
I'm glad to hear the girls are doing good and passed their first practical exam :)
I'm sorry about the pump damage :( Not cool at all. But it was awesome that you did what you did - that was a huge help indeed. I hope "your girls" are feeling better soon from the battle they just fought!
Hope you get to soak up some sunshine today!

Hi.

Have I commented here before? It seems like I had to have at some point because...wow! I live in MN, I was a gestational carrier that just delivered twins on march 15th at 34 weeks gestation.
