Oh Baby Baby....Baby

Today was my first appointment with the high risk OB, I really like him.  They said I will see about 3 doctors throughout my pregnancy, just depends who is available at the time of my appointment.

I actually had a real u/s this time with the gel stuff on the tummy and everything.  Not the condom on a stick.  However I must say with the vaginal u/s you get way better pictures.  B/c with the new pics that I have I can not figure out where the head is or anything, does this make me a bad mom?  Baby A & C were kinda hard to see and the tech said that we may not get a good pic of Baby A anymore, they are so squished together. We saw Baby B do a little jump/wiggle thing, as soon as she put the u/s thing over the baby it did its thing.  So cute.

Baby A measured 32.9 mm and 163 bpm
Baby B measured 30.8 mm and 163 bpm
Baby C measured 32.7 mm and 169 bpm

A & B measured at 10 weeks 2 days so they are a day a head.

Over the weekend I had a little bit of a freak out moment.  I had this brown stringy mucus discharge and really bad cramping.  I swore something was going to be wrong on the u/s today, I really didn't want to look at first but did.  DH told me that if someone would have told him 5 years ago that he would freak out every time I came out of the bathroom he would have said that they were crazy.  He asked me every time I came out, if I was okay, it is crazy how close you become about personal stuff when IF is involved.  The doc said that it was normal and that the cramping is not going to go away anytime soon.

Horrible Horrible Dream

I do not know why we have really bad dream for that matter I do not know why we have crazy ones that do not make sense.  I woke up at 4:15 this morning and refused to go back to sleep b/c I did not want this dream to start back up again.

The dream nightmare went like this.
DH and I were late for my first OB appointment (which is on Monday) and we couldn't have the ultrasound done b/c that appointment was over already.  So I just had blood work and then I went home.  A nurse calls me really late that night asking me if someone had called me with the test results and I said no and she said well your progesterone is at a 7 (which I think she meant HCG but I'm not sure, plus I'm taking progesterone shots) so you miscarried.

It still makes me tear up thinking about it.  I went to the bathroom so I didn't wake DH up and just prayed that this was not going to be a dream come true.

Okay it has caught up with me

Morning All Day Sickness.  I do not actually throw up but I'm always nauseated so in turn I really really try to eat but nothing sounds good.  So I mainly eat oatmeal.  This is the worst part and I'm going to call my new OB about it today, I can not take my prenatal vitamins (without my stomach starting to contract or whatever it does to make you feel not so great).  I sneeze all the time and guess what right before I sneeze I feel like I'm going to throw up, do we see a pattern.  However I am grateful that I do not actually throw up.

This post is probably not something most want to read well b/c who would want to hear about being sick.  But I feel like I've passed a milestone and that is that I realized this morning that when I go to the bathroom I do not check for blood every single time.  Does that mean that I'm getting more comfortable with being pregnant and not thinking that something is going to be wrong all the time.  Sorry probably TMI again.

On another note super excited about Halloween coming up, going to a Sweet 16 Halloween bash this weekend.  Will post pics of the fun (yea right, I never post pics when I say I'm going to).  I hope all of you have a fun Halloween.

Update about the speaking thing at Washington University, it did not work out this time around (because of scheduling issues) however I am scheduled for next year once I have the babies.  I feel much better about it this time around and not so rushed.

Just talked to the doc and they recommended that I take prenatal gummy vitamins.  So I'm going to try that.

Need Opinions ASAP

Just got a call from my RE, she left a message asking if I could call her back b/c she had a favor to ask of me and she wanted to ask personally.  So I call her back trying to figure out what in the world it would be.  Here it is - She teaches a class at the University as well as being a doctor, she wants me to show up to her class for a half an hour Q&A.  So I am not a public speaker by far and I'm kinda already freaking out inside and I haven't even said I would do it.  I get so emotional when I talk about IF with people b/c it is a big part of my life and I do not  know if I could hold it together in front of these students.  Being nervous is not going to help the crying situation either. 

So here is where I need your opinion, would you do this if you were asked?

baby stats and more

Okay I'm just now getting to post baby stats.
Baby A - measured 1.65cm with a heart rate of 170bpm
Baby B - measured 1.63cm with a heart rate of 170bpm
Baby C - measured 1.68cm with a heart rate of 178bpm

I don't remember if I said this in the last post but I was released from the RE and have my first appointment with the high risk OB is on October 31st.  I'm pretty excited.  I will be 10 weeks at that point and I can not wait to see what the babies look like then. 

Had lunch with a best friend today and we were talking about how far along I am, if they do take me in at 32 weeks then I am 1/4 of the way there already.  She got the babies a very nice blanket and 3 cute onesies with chicks on them, adorable.

Now about everyday life, we are planning to have a bonfire/hayride the first weekend of November and I can not wait.  Someone said that it might snow before the end of this month, I hope that this is not a bad winter b/c I have a habit of not being graceful and do not want to fall while pregnant.  Oh Halloween is coming up and I have my costume all figured out I can not wait to post a picture of it.

Everything went super well today, Thank God. I will post the babies states later. I was just released from the RE. I'm transferring to a high risk OB. Thank you again for all the prayers and please keep them coming.

Do all IF pregnant ladies freak out about every little new feeling they have?  I just want Monday to get here so I can see/hear the heart beats.  I really try not to stress out but can not help it.

This weekend I'm going on a girls shopping trip so hopefully that will help me keep my mind off of everything.

I have not done very good with posting how I feel and what not so that I can remember later on down the road.  Saturday morning had my first bout of morning sickness, it kinda felt like sea sickness, it went away at about 9am.  My acupuncturists said that she was going to do a different technique to try to keep the morning sickness at bay.  I guess it worked.  Having all kinds of different feelings going on down south, that is kinda the part that freaks me out b/c I don't know if they are all good all the time.  Still having food aversions and wanting to sleep all the time.  Also I'm trying to drink a gallon fluids a day, in turn this makes me pee every half hour.

I forgot to add this, I am hungry all the time especially in the morning (I eat all morning) and if I do not eat and I get really hungry I feel really nauseous so you better give me food now when I want it.

Beep, Grumble, Ow

I woke up way earlier this morning than I wanted.  DH's alarm goes off FOREVER before he gets up, my stomach was growling for food and I have lots and lots of cramping.  So I grab a bowl of Apple Jacks (yum) and head to the couch to watch The Little Couple (DVRed).  I am glad that I'm feeling the cramping/fullness again because I really have not felt it much lately.

Last night DH's best friend, wife and little boy (red head) came over, I love spending time with them.  Red head was sleeping when the first arrived and I could have just watched him forever, he is the sweetest little thing.
DH & Red head going for a ride on the tractor

On a good note, I have not had morning sickness.  Only sore BBs, cramps, food aversions, cravings, pee a lot and been emotional.

Oh Sweet Jesus

First off sorry I didn't get to post yesterday I just could not get 5 minutes to sit in front of a computer.

The title was a comment made by one of the uncles to be.  My DH just leaned against the wall staring at the ultrasound screen not making a peep.

I saw two sacs initially and then after she swung the wand around guess what there was a third one.  So that is right I'm having triplets, when I got home last night getting ready to go to bed I asked DH if this all felt like a dream to him.  I just do not feel like it is real.

Now to the stats, I know think Baby C is a boy b/c it was the one that was hiding behind my bladder as in I had to use the restroom twice so that she could see him it.
Baby A measured .26cm and heart rate is 102bpm
Baby B measured .25cm and heart rate is 93bpm (I know it is lil slow but they said it was fine since it is still early)
Baby C measured .27cm and heart rate is 116bpm

It was wonderful to hear the heartbeats, the most wonderful sound in the world.

I know there is so much more to say but it is just not coming to me right now, again I feel like I'm dreaming.  My next ultrasound is October 17th.  If you have questions please ask.  Also I'm trying to think of nicknames for them instead of Baby A, B & C.

Super Pumped

Today I go for my first ultrasound, the main reason for the ultrasound is to see how many we are having.  I have waited for so long for this nothing could get me down.  I will update later as to what we find out.

I just went to the restroom (I know you really wanted to know that right), anyway there was a little bit of brown bloody discharge when I wiped.  My heart sank, but I know that it is ok but I'm telling the doc today anyway. 

Have a great day everyone.
