The babies are all doing well. Growing bigger and moving around ALOT more. Especially at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. The body parts and sticking out more and when I lie down for ultrasounds, my belly leans to the left instead of sticking straight up like it used to.
I didn't get a chance to post yesterday because I wasn't feeling well. I think I had eaten something bad Thursday and early Friday am, it gave me a stomach ache. I also woke up early because I was hungry so after they took my blood sugar, I had a little cereal which made my stomach hurt more. Everything came out. I didn't want to order breakfast, but the dr. rounding that day said she'd have to put me on an IV if I stopped eating. Well that motivated me so I ordered toast and a boiled egg and it seemed to sit in my stomach. I then slept all day until G and my parents came to visit.
I am really getting tired these days. All I want to do is knock out all my treatments in the morning and then sleep. I don't know if I mentioned before, but I start my day at 6am. Depending when they put me on the monitor, I take a mid morning nap for an hour while I'm on it. Go to ultrasound then order lunch. Ultrasounds aren't as fun as they used to be anymore because my stomach is so distended that it hurts when they push with the probe. I'm over it. As long as I know that their hearts are beating and fluids good, I don't really want to lie there while the tech keeps looking around. The ultrasound techs are all quick except one, so on Mon and Thurs when I have BPP's (biophysical profiles....heart tones, doppler (Mon), fluids, movement, practice breathing), I request the faster ones. When John was with me last Monday, I had the slow tech and I was starting to get annoyed towards the end.
I tend to get really annoyed fast these days and don't want management staff for visitors anymore. I used to always keep my door open a little, but most days now I have it shut with a "Do not disturb" sign on it so I can nap throughout the day. I am just trying to survive these last few weeks. I can't believe I only have 27 (?) days left to gestate my little peeps!
So when these blog entries start to get shorter, you'll know why. As my belly gets bigger, the tray table gets further and further away and it's hard to type.
Speaking of bigger bellies. I used to use a wash cloth as a bib. Then it went to 2-3 wash cloths, and now I'm up to a full size towel. It's pretty pathetic.
Time to go on the monitor....write more next week.
