Man, I am a posting fool! This must be a new record. At last, I have something vaguely interesting going on in my life. Sorta an understatement, yes?
So, I had a fun and relaxing weekend. Saturday I went to visit my favorite OB that’s not my OB, Dr. Gary! And got to see the babies again. Some may say I’m obsessed. I say, finally my obsessive nature has something really good to focus on. I just have a hard time believing everything’s okay until I can see it with my own eyes.
Anyway, it was really neat. The one baby we could see clearly (because of the way it was situated) was waving its little armlets and leglets around, and it even looked like it had hiccups for a few minutes! It was funny because I’d laugh, and then you’d see it jiggling around in my belly (like a bowl full of jelly, as it were.) Anyway, we saw the other two heartbeats as well. So yay!
After that excitement, I went to meet my cousins Monica and Max (her son) to go swimming at a community pool. That was fun! I wish I had gotten there earlier, it was kind of cloudy by the time we got there. Next time! It’s almost too bad I won’t be hugely pregnant in the summer. I’ll bet the pool would be nice. All in all, though, I’m extremely glad I won’t be.
Now, regarding weight gain. I’m going to listen to my wise blog readers and not stress about it. I had a bad day on Saturday where I really didn’t eat enough and I had painful hunger pangs that would not go away. Lesson learned. I’m going to start keeping snacks in my purse. Granola bars and stuff like that. Dipped in lard. Heh. Kidding.
Wednesday’s my doctor’s appointment. I’m looking forward to asking all of my questions – when will I start seeing the Maternal-Fetal specialist? That’s my number one question. But I have lots more written down. I was just so stunned at the last appointment that there was no room for questions. This time, I’ll be prepared.
Speaking of being prepared, I’ve had a lot of people asking (already) about showers. (Especially my friends who like to shop. Heh heh.) I don’t know how it works with high-risk pregnancies like this. I don’t want to have one too soon, that just seems presumptuous. I’d like to wait until 24 weeks, at least. I don’t want to wait too long, either. What if I’m on bed rest and I can’t go to my own shower? (Someone on a message board I read had this happen to her. So sad!) It sounds petty and small, but like I said, people ask about it. So…triplet-mom-readers, what do you think?
And on the topic of “stuff”, I have to say I have the most generous friends and family. We already have three cribs promised to us, three swings, three bouncy chairs, a metric shitload of clothes, a double stroller, a breast pump (apologies to any male readers), a bassinett, and so much other stuff I can’t even remember. It’s overwhelming how much people want to help out. Yay for people!
Okay, must go…eat.
