Hi everyone, we've had a roller coaster couple of weeks but the babies are doing well so that's all that counts! I have a pretty flexible job, on the phone and email mostly so been working from bed - keeping me from getting to bored. Daytime TV sucks, except for baby shows on the discovery channel. I especially enjoy Baby Baby about multiples.
Had a great visit with my IVF doc on Friday - he cleared me for limited activity so I can sit up in bed now, move to the sofa, shower every day and overall just enjoy those little luxuries. He's also released me to my regular obgyn so we're feeling much more confident. I'm exhausted, have headaches and nausea so still in bed much of the time. My mom is visiting and is really good at keeping me fed, bringing in lots of water etc. Frankly I'm miserable and looking forward to 2nd trimester when I'm convinced I'll be feeling much better. The new bleeding has stopped (finally) and is now a clot so the hope is that my body will absorb and/or pass it as the babies grow. Biggest fear is that I'll be in bed most of the pregnancy, boy that would suck but I know it happens and women survive it - at least I'm at home and not in the hospital!!
Well I've enjoyed catching up on all your posts, sounds like everyone is doing well and wish Susan all the best on her 2 week bedrest. DH got me a cushy matress cover after week 1 - I highly recommend it!!
Oh and joy of all joys I'm back down from 2 PIO shots a day to just 1 - my bottom is bruised and looks like a pin-cushion but hopefully is on the mend. Started oral progesterone and I'll take the stomach discomfort over those extra pokes any day
Sorry for the long post .. just glad to check in with everyone and wish you all well. BTW Pebbles - I am huge too, will check my tp roll size but I can tell you the belly-bands I bought 3 weeks ago are no use anymore, the only pants I can wear are the cloth kind with forgiving waist-bands or pregger pants, have you noticed they give you grandma-butt?? Sorry to any grandmas out there
Hugs and kisses to you all - I've really been missing you!! Take care, Racquel
