A little catch up

Let's see if I can catch up a little....

    Riley and I had a great time on our anniversary getaway! The first stop was to take the kids to Granny's. They were so excited we barely got a goodbye, lol. After that we stopped at Starbucks to get some sugar in hopes that the babies would be active for our ultrasound (they had told us to eat some sugar before hand). The ultrasound was super cool in that we got to see our babies but we couldn't get any face shots of them. Baby A had his face buried into Baby B and then Baby B was looking down. Since they weren't in the best positions we rescheduled for the following week to come back and try again. We continued onto our getaway by doing a little shopping and a nice lunch out until it was time to check into our hotel. Later that night we went to Bonnell's and had an amazing dinner. It was different from any anniversary dinner I've ever had. We enjoyed Elk tenderloin, Buffalo tenderloin, Quail, Andouille sausage, the best ever green chili cheese grits and grilled cactus. I was a little hesitant to try the cactus but glad I did because it was delicious!

The next day we went and saw The Great and Powerful Oz in 3D. Not sure I would have liked it as much if it wasn't in 3D. It really made the screen pop to life with all the colors. Later that night we went to Abuelos and had another very delicious dinner. It was so nice to have some quiet time together! The next day we ran some errands and had a nice big breakfast before heading home to get the kids. I was super happy to get back home. This pregnant mama needs her own bed!!! After getting home Brit and I took the afternoon to go shopping! We went to Sam Moons and found her some special earrings and bracelet for my baby shower to go with the dress I ordered her from Lolly Wolly! She's going to be so cute! We also went shopping and she picked some adorable little rompers for the twins to wear later in the summer. She absolutely LOVED that!

That night this little guy lasted all of thirty minutes in his bed before he was crawling in ours to snuggle. I think he missed us!

On the baby front.....

  • Thursday March 21, 2013 / 25 weeks 2 days : Since we had to reschedule the sonogram Riley couldn't go because he had a meeting. I invited my MIL to go with me and it was an amazing appointment! Baby A (Barrett) was showing off and Baby B (Brennen) kept putting his hand in front of his face or looking down. We did get some awesome pictures though and it made this whole pregnancy feel more real! We were able to get a CD, a DVD and several 4x6's. Riley and I enjoyed watching the DVD later that night. 

  • Friday March 22, 2013 / 25 weeks 3 days: I woke up at 1am with a horrible migraine headache, starving and the driest mouth. I could only drink water since I had to be fasting for my glucose test. It was a long night! I took Ben to school and half way to his school I had to pull over and throw up. I was so glad I had a mini trashcan in the van! He was so upset and kept telling me I needed to go to the nurse when we got to his school :)  I seriously considered cancelling my glucose test but after I got sick that eased up the headache a little. I walked Ben to class, drove to my Dr's office, drank that glucola at 8:25 and prayed I wouldn't throw it up because if I did the test would be void. They got me back in the room and blood drawn at 9:25! My OB came in and we talked about my headache, how happy he was with my blood pressure, and listened to the heartbeats. Then we started discussing delivery and he said if Baby A was head down we could try for a natural birth or if they stayed transverse we would need to do a c-section. I told him I was really leaning towards the c-section regardless of position because I was fearful of delivering Baby A and then ending up with an emergency c-section because Baby B was in distress. That I felt better trying to schedule something because I felt like that would be better for making sure the older B's were all taken care of. That since I wanted my tubes tied I could get it all done at the same time. He said if a c-section was what I wanted that's what we would do. I've never had surgery before and that part scares me but I just want the "safest" scenario to get them here the best! SO we are discussing all of this and then in mid sentence I said, "I think I need a trashcan." He grabbed me one real quick and I threw up all that glucola. I was so happy I didn't throw up until AFTER my blood draw!!!! My head was pounding and he encouraged me to go home, call Riley to get the kids and take a phenergan for the nausea. He wrote me a script for Zofran too incase I couldn't take the phenergan. Here's the thing about phenergan..... it knocks me off my rocker!! Once I take that stuff I'm out for hours and then even when I wake up I have a hard time opening my eyes and functioning. Thankfully Riley was able to get the kids and I came home and went straight to bed. He rocks because he did two school pickups, brought Brit home, put her hair in a bun for ballet, got her across town for dance and then took the boys to Chick fil a to play. I woke up long enough to tell them to have fun and eat dinner with them. Then I slept from 8pm-9am the next morning. While the sleep was much needed I do know one thing I must put on my birth plan.... for them NOT to give me phenergan in an IV. I will miss the first 24 hours of their life if they do, lol. I was so afraid that my glucose numbers were bad since I threw up in the office. I was hoping it was headache related!

  • Monday March 25, 2013 / 25 weeks 6 days: My OB's office called with my glucose results. I needed them to be under 140. My result was 90!!!!!!! I passed!!!! WHoohooo!! I "think" I have to do another one at 28 weeks. I am so glad I didn't pass by one point or something. Hopefully I will pass the next one too and avoid a three hour GTT!!! 
  • Tuesday March 26, 2013 / 26 weeks: I have my specialist appointment for a growth scan! Can't wait to see the babies again!
