If you've miss the first I, II, III, IV, V you can see them here.
Q: I'd love to see a tummy shot when they are moving around in there...does the belly ever get lop-sided, or a big ol' foot stick out???
A: Oh my, these babies move so much... I am actually working on uploading a video I took of the babies moving around in my belly. It's very very cool! When I have a contraction you can see big bumps... little butts and baby B's head since it's still up top. I love being able to see what's what although it is much harder with 2... or at least figuring out who's foot is who's.
Q: Does your husband help you with the kids while you go to your appointments, or you them all 4 with you?
A: I NEVER take the kids with me to my OB or peri appointments... I have a cervical ultra sound each time and they are more than happy to play with friends, nana or stay home with dad. Before bedrest and hubby was not working from home my mom would come up for my appointments or my friend Shelly would keep them. Now that hubby is home he's kept them home for most of my appointments unless he's busy working and then i'll have them go to friends houses or such.
Q: have you had natural deliveries for your boys? As far as no drugs??? Just curious.
A: Epi each time... and THANK GOODNESS! All of our boys have been face up, chin up & have gotten stuck on my pelvic bone each time. I have thought time and time again about going without but I do not feel like I need to. I have very long labors and I want to enjoy them, I want to have fond memories and I don't want to remember being in so much pain I wanted to die. Ha! I am working on writing up the boys birth stories just for the record... since you know... birth in on my mind right now and all.
Q: You said you have a "feeling" the twins will be girls. Did you have a sense when you were preggers with your boys that they were going to be boys each time?
A: I have not... it's been very 50/50 each time. This has felt very different. I think a great deal of that has been my faith. Before I was even pregnant this time I had been praying for our future children... girls or boys... and that put in simple terms... God would fill my heart with love for more boys and take away my desire to have a daughter and that God would fill me with faith in his plan.
Q: Will you let your boys have a say in the babies names?
A: Nope... it's all me and hubby. Not because we don't value their opinions but they won't be there and it is a very important decision to make... 3 year olds can come up with some REALLY strange names too!
Q: Did you cloth diaper your babies? And do you plan on cloth diapering the twins?
A: We do use cloth diapers... I didn't use them with my 1st or 3rd and only used them part of the time with our 2nd. It wasn't until I discovered bum genius that I was totally into cloth diapers for real. We've been using all cloth, except for a disposable at night, for #4 and plan on using all cloth for the twins as well. We actually just received 24 small bum genius diapers for the twins. Thanks Dad! They are SOOOO adorable!
Q: where did you get that awesome dress from?
A: the dress... well I bought it at Goodwill *gasp* are you surprised?! It is H&M brand though.
Q: Have you done anything to prepare your boys for the upcoming new arrivals? Such as discussions or books to prep them for changes in the household, etc.
A: Bedrest has provided a nice introduction to how our life is going to change. we've talked in short bits about how different it will be with 2 babies instead of 1 but other than that... not really. With each addition to our family the boys have been awesome. We've never had acting out, hitting the baby, ect. I truly believe God gave our boys the hearts of a large family because they all LOVE the idea of having more babies in the the family and are even talking about having more after this. ha-ha!
Q: Wondering what your nursery looks like though. I bet it is FABULOUS!
A: Nope.... no nursery. Ozzie is still in the crib and we haven't borrowed, purchased or set up another crib for the twins yet. They will be in a crib in our room for 8-12 months. From there i'm not sure what we're doing... it will partially depend on if they are boys or girls.
Q: I'd like to know what supplements you take while pregnant. I'm a vegetarian too and am preparing for baby #3. Thanks!
A: Most people would laugh at the pile of pills I'm taking right now. Although pills do NOT replace eating good. I am taking more than I've ever taken before because of the demand on my body right now. And let me tell you... I have felt better health wise during this pregnancy than I ever have. So... what am i taking?
Folic Acid , Calcium Lactate , Ferrofood (Iron) , Cardio & Cyruta Plus (adrenals, blood, heart)  & SP Greenfood . They are all from Standard Process. I buy ours from our Chiropractor but you can also purchase them online.
Clarks minerals are liquid minerals that we add to juice. It's a great way to get some extra minerals in. You can find there info here. I take 2 oz. a day in orange juice.
PhytoMatrix (multi-vitamin), Phyt-Aloe (fruit & veggies plus) & Ambrotose (cell to cell communication - immune support) are all from Mannatech.
I know it's a lot but if you felt the difference you would know how important it is... i'm really curious to watch all of the amounts drop after I have the babies... it's been odd watching them climb during pregnancy. **for those of you who don't know how I know what amount to take... I see a holistic chiropractor every 4 weeks and she muscle tests each of the supplements at each appointment.
As usual..... leave a comment with any other questions you have! Hope you had fun!
