First OB appointment

Today Sam came down for our first OB appointment. She got here earlie so we could hang out. I ended up passing out on the couch when the kids napped and she poked about on her phone. How boring am I? lol

Our appointment went really well. We where there for 2 hours ( way behind) but our OB was fantastic. Took her time explained herself and what our "plan" was up to about 16 weeks. Then its all in the air and up to the babies.
Waiting.... waiting.... waiting.....

She said that I need to gain more weight. I have actually lost weight being pregnant and with being VERY VERY sick that Ive just started gaining a little back. So down 10 up 3... I have a ways to go.

She said I need to eat anything I can keep down and to eat SOMETHING every 15 min or so. She was a little concerned with how much blood I lost the night I went to the ER and how big the clot was. And that this isnt the first time Ive bled and with my history with Thomas and Hemorrhaging she will be keeping a close eye on me.

The longest she will let me go is 38 weeks. I told her I want to avoid a c-section and she said that was fine but I will have to deliver in the O.R to make sure babies and I are safe.

She increased my Zofran but now my insurance has to get a waiver so I can get more then 12 pills for 15 days. So tonight Im all out till hopefully tomorrow. Im sucking down milk and water to keep full and snacking as much as I can.

Im also on an ant-acid pill. Acid shooting up in the middle of the night isnt much fun....

I go back next week for an ultrasound and the week after for more blood tests. Then I see her 2 weeks after that.

Hopefully tomorrow I get to cut down on some of the other meds when they get the results back from Fargo... Fingers Crossed <3

I am officially done with the clinic in Fargo and graduated to our OB here in Alexandria. We will be having a few more blood tests that will run in Alex and get sent there.
And at 10 weeks I will be off all my meds~~!! OH YES!!! I am way excited about that..

This last week we got to see the babies again and hear the heart beat's again. But this time we got numbers..
Baby A(right): Heartbeat is 136
Baby B(left): Heartbeat is 110

We are looking at earlie June babies since they let twins go to about 37 weeks... By 37 weeks I'm assuming Ill be SPENT and want these babies out. haha.

Still feeling crummy and tired. I seem to have some relief when I snack. If its been a while since Ive eaten something or even drank anything I get sick and shaky. Ive went through 3 cans of pineapple. I love the juice over ice and its something easy and healthy that I just put in a container and pull out when I need a small snack. That and yogurt. I buy the tubs and snack away.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday week/end.

So far so good

So far we haven't had any more bleeding since last weekend. *phew* I must say I am finding myself getting more and more tired as the days progress. I am nauseous off and on and that seems to be increasing as well. The other night I had some kind of acid indigestion because I woke up with terrible chest pain and feeling like I was about to throw up. Ran to the bathroom got sick ate some tums and felt better. I have no idea where it came from and I'm thinking its from my prenatal vitamin. I'm testing out when I should take it. If i take it anytime after noon I get this to happen and I feel worse.

I have to eat small meals slowly and lay down after larger meals like dinner. Ginger is my best friend and I am looking for any other natural remedies I can use to help all of this. Crackers make me want to gag in the morning. Someone said candy canes... So I think a walmart run is in order to give it a try.

I never really got sick with my 2 kids. From a smell here and there but nothing like this. Or this tired. Double work on my body and I'm definitely feeling it.

 November 14th... need I say more?
I popped out earlier with Olivia then I did with Thomas but not this earlie. I am a little bloated on top from the meds but the round little belly as you can compaire from the picture above is all bump. My GF who's going for her RN could feel the top of my uterus. This is going to be a long ride I'm feeling =P
2 pairs of pants are put up already and I replaced them with 1 bigger size AND sweat pants
(my new best friend).. I have lost weight since the transfer and I'm guessing alot of it has to do with me eating less, but right now that's all normal and babies are healthy and growing. I wont need to worry about weight gain for a while.

Cant wait for monday and be able to see our little buns. <3

Back Again

Over the weekend I had a huge scare. At about 2am sat morning I started spotting. The spotting turned into gushing blood and passing a clot the size of my fist. I called the on call nurse and they told me to go into the ER asap. I was sure we lost the babies. I went to the ER and all the staff acted like I passed them and asked what I wanted them to do. I told them I hemorrhaged with my son and I needed to be sure I was safe and if the babies passed or not. Well HCG was 18282 and surprise BABIES WHERE THERE!!!

The ultrasound machine was a down grade from the ultrasound machines they have in Fargo so they couldn't see the one sack on one and thought it collapsed. But the other baby looked great. No heart beats at that time. There was alot of fluid around the uturis so they said a cyst must of ruptured.

They released me and told me to rest and go back in if I started bleeding again like I did before (it started slowing down). And to check with my Dr.

I rested alot over the weekend with little walking and alot of sitting.

Monday came and I headed back to Fargo. They didn't do a HCG because there where 2 little heart beats!!!!

Progesterone and estrogen was right where it should be and they couldn't explain the bleeding but to take it easy for 2 weeks. It is common to have bleeding with a twin pregnancy so this could happen throughout the next 7 months but usually stops at about 8 to 10 weeks.

baby A and baby B
I go back to Fargo next week monday for more blood work and another ultrasound then the week after I start seeing our OBGYN!!!

This morning I woke up to some uterine pain. Dull somewhat crampy but more of an ache. Went to the bathroom and I was spotting. Instantly my heart sank. Flash back of the last cycle and I almost started crying. I calmed down text Sam and called the clinic and asked them what to do. They thought I should come in for an ultrasound and blood work. I only spotted the one time and it was very light but with the acheness it made it very scary.

We went in for the ultrasound and BAM there was peanut...

So far we for sure see one little one in there. Sam and I swear we saw a second but smaller spot but its too earlie to tell. The Dr was even surprised to of seen anything this earlie. 4 weeks 3 days along putting our due date at July 8th 2013!!! 4 days after my Birthday!!!
 That little black spot there is him/her!

Then we waited for the blood work.. HCG went up 700!!!
Thank God because even if we saw peanut and the HCG dropped we would most likely miscarry.
The progesterone went up as well (whats sustaining the pregnancy through medications) 18.7 from 10!!! The labs where perfect!!!

Now I rest. Nicks gone hunting all weekend and its just the kids and I for a few days. I think Ill take some time to get some reading done on SPD and relax with the kiddos since I'm on light duty for a few days.

Good Luck Hunters!!!!
