10w5d & Privacy Update

I had blood work on Tuesday and I am officially OFF Estrace and PIO shots!! I have been released from Dr. K and the NEDC. I am now officially in the care of my new OB and MFM.
I am still taking Zofran like candy and hoping that the nausea will ease up soon. : )

Wow! I have to say that our family was amazed to see so many people who want to follow our triplet journey and beyond. There was a time where we wanted traffic to spread the word of EA, but since announcing our triplet pregnancy, we have over 600 people looking at our posts.

It is hard to talk "freely" about our family and this pregnancy and I truly want this blog to be a journal of sorts of this time in our lives. It will share the ups and downs-- the trials and the sanctification!

So out of the over 630 people who viewed our last post there are over 100 of you who have contacted me by email or commented on the post to follow us. Blogger will only take 100. So, my wonderful blog designer is in the process of moving our blog to WordPress. The domain name will remain the same. It will just switch over to a basic WordPress theme and I will post from there. When she is finished moving the blog over to WP, I will have to enter and invite all of you who have requested to continue following us.

So, we will be public a bit longer until all the details are finished. If you haven't put your email address on the list, comment below or email me.

9w4d & going private

We had a great ultrasound yesterday and all 3 babies are doing well!

Rhea and I through much consideration will be making our blog private. If you would like to continue following our journey please leave your email in the comments. If you have a gmail or blogger account you will always have access after you accept the invite. If you do not have a gmail or blogger account, you will need a new invitation every 30 days which I do not mind sending.   I know that checking private blogs can be a pain, but we need to do this for our family and look forward to continuing to record our personal triplet journey. :) I will have it set up hopefully sometime this week. :)

8w 3d

Well, never mind. The Unisom/B6 cure was only temporary...

I started Zofran yesterday. I am waiting for it to work. Dr. K had me start at 1/2 tablet every 8 hours and now that is upped to 1 tablet. We are praying this brings me some kind of relief so I can function even a bit, eat, and sleep. This by far is the worst I have ever been. I have never needed drugs.

I have my next u/s on Tuesday. My blood work is Monday. I am hoping my progesterone is through the roof and I can wean down/off this stuff. I know it is making me feel worse. I will be seeing the MFM for this u/s. I saw here a few times with my pregnancy with Sarah. We have a great relationship and I look forward to seeing her again.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I am still here and praying through this first trimester. Fall is my very favorite season and when people ask what is my favorite color, I like to say "fall". I love all of the colors of fall. So, the cooler weather, the falling leaves and having days where I can wear sweaters are little blessings I love this time of year! Too bad my tummy couldn't handle a Pumpkin Spice Latte this season. That's okay. Peppermint Shake season at Chick Fil A is almost here!!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Things I have learned in the last few days:

  • Canada has a prescription med that is specifically formulated for morning sickness. The 2 ingredients are Unisom and Vitamin B6 both in a time release cap. I read up on it and bought Unisom and some B6. I started breaking pills in 1/2s and thirds and started taking it. It has been a life saver. I can function again. I am still nauseous all day, but I can at least eat a little bit here and there and I am not throwing up. The insomnia at night from the 24/7 morning sickness has been relieved with this combo, but I have yet to figure out how to make it "time released" and I tend to be a bit groggy during the day. A key thing I have learned: Both must be taken together and never let a dose wear off---too hard to get back on the other side if you wait until you are at your worst again. 
  • I have learned that Blue Sky Jamacian Ginger Ale with stevia rocks for me right now. I can't even get water down. I didn't want suger or artificial sweeteners and this one settles my tummy a bit. It has real giner root and ginger oil and it has a bit of a spicy kick to it. My tummy likes it. I must have it near by, all the time. 
  • The maternity clothes I have are not going to get me very far at all. Uh, with triplets, my body is thinking it needs to be on an expansion project rather early. I am eating hardly anything and still the clothes get tighter and tighter as each day passes. I was in maternity clothes at the beginning of 6 weeks. This is serious stuff.
  • This house wouldn't be running at all without sweet Rebecca stepping in. She has done an amazing job helping care for littles and being in the kitchen when I absolutely can't. I can't. 
  • Instead of Baby A, Baby B, and Baby C, we need to name these little ones, Chick, Fil, and A. since I eat something from there every day it seems.
That is the latest from where I sit (okay recline) while I sip my ginger ale.
