The girls have been sleeping 6-7 hours in a row for the past two weeks now!! We've even got a couple of 8 hours nights from Makenna. It looks like Makenna is going to be our good sleeper as she generally sleeps an hour more than Makayla every morning. We will have new pictures posted of the girls soon. We also have a couple of great videos of them that we'll try to get on here as well.

I am still feeling the effects of the Mastitist, but overall I am feeling better. This infection has been no joke, and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

I was discharged from the hospital on Thursday evening. We’ve had some good nights and some not so good nights. I think the most important lesson we’ve learned so far is: Sleep when you can, as often as you can!!! We had a pretty rough night Friday night because we didn’t nap during the day. The girls decided that they weren’t going to sleep, so we were extremely exhausted by the time Saturday morning rolled around. (No sleep for 28 hours!!) Luckily, the Grandmas were just around the corner and they came to our rescue.
So, we will be updating this site with more photos and stories. Check in every now and again to get the latest on the Doyle family.

I went to see the perinatologist today and we got measurements on the girls. They both weigh 5lbs 10oz. They are measuring a little smaller than they should be at this point (about a week behind), but the doctor didn't seem to be concerned. They said it was a common occurrence in twins, and there was no reason to be alarmed. Both girls are still head down and Baby A (the baby on my left) has taken the lead. They were both neck and neck for the longest time, but Baby A finally dropped down.

The OBGYN appointment was Tuesday and this is what she said: My cervix is still long and closed, both babies are still head down, I will be induced at 38 weeks if I haven't had the girls by then, my uterus is measuring the equivalent to that of a woman who's 40 weeks pregnant, my girls will be delivered by Dr. Uma, and I am up to 200 lbs (38 lbs so far)!!!!
The Perinatologist appointment was today and this is what they said: The fluid still looks great on both babies, they are both measuring right on target, they want to see me every week now for a Fetal Non-Stress Test, one of the babies has a full head of hair (we couldn't really tell on the other one), and baby A weighs 4lbs 4oz and baby B weighs 4lbs 8oz!! I'm carrying around 9lbs of baby, and I still have 5 weeks to go!!!

With all this good news I was shocked when the doctor dropped the bomb. He said three things: 1.) He told me that I cannot take anymore baths (which I’ve been doing every night to help my back and restless legs ), 2.) he wants me to start going to the OB’s office weekly for check ups, and the final blow… he wants me to stop working as of this Friday!!! I told him that I was not prepared, financially or mentally, to stop working so soon and asked him if there was any way to compromise. He told me that the contractions and pain I was having are just going to get worse the longer I push myself and said it was his medical advice that FRIDAY be my last day!!! He said that I WILL go into preterm labor if I don’t start taking it easy. This is so much sooner than I expected. I thought I’d at least make it till the end of this month. Of course I will do what's best for my girls and I will follow the doctor's orders. I have a doctor's appointment scheduled for next week, so I will get clarification on what they need me to do.
