Looks like we have had a couple positive blood tests! Our first ultrasound is on the 26th. It seems so far away. Our due date will be the middle of April.

rcr, that is so cute that you have clothes from when you were little. I am sure your little girl will look adorable in them. I hope your first day back to school/work goes well. Yay, for massages - always a good thing. Hope the counseling helps you get through the rough patches.
dandelionsflowers, welcome! Congrats on your bfp and hopefully your ultrasound will show great things. How many embryos did you transfer?
AFM, today I am 22 weeks pregnant. Hard to believe I am on the downward slope toward my boys making their entrance into the world. DH and I interviewed a doula on Sunday and I think we both really felt comfortable with her. It is exciting to think that the birth of our boys will happen hopefully sometime in November or December.post #2444 of 26968/15/13 at 4:57amShort on time as always, lol. But wanted to say shesaidboom, check out this Facebook group: Tngue Tie Babies Support Group. You need to request membership. Apparently most forms of tongue tie are poorly diagnosed and often left untreated. Docs will call it normal and say maybe you should bottle feed if bf is too painful. If you come across this there are docs that will help! Freddy had his tie revised and is doing great with bf now. Not being able to stick his tongue out sounds like a tie. Does he get a dip or a v in his tongue when he cries? Make sure they also check for an upper lip tie. Enjoy your sweet baby!
RCR, totally hear you on going back after the summer. I'm preparing my classroom now and I was in tears yesterday at leaving my babies behind. I took Freddy with me, but on Tuesday I have to leave them both with hubby. He is great, but Freddy doesn't take a bottle yet. We're seeing progress, but I know it's going to be a very hard transition, boo...
Blue, hi to you! I know you gave a shout out to me and now I can't remember what you asked. Lots of love to you!post #2445 of 26968/15/13 at 7:55pmpost #2446 of 26968/16/13 at 5:02am
dandelionsflowers, I know how agonizing that wait is for the ultrasound. Since my DH and I had to wait two years to get a bfp, waiting two weeks after that to have an ultrasound seemed like an eternity. It was so amazing when the doctor quickly said as he started to scan, "There are two!". I hope you can pass the time until your ultrasound comes to tell you what is going on within you.post #2447 of 26968/16/13 at 11:39amWell another brief update from tripletville... Best news is I'm still pregnant. 30+4. Bummer is I'm really hypertensive -- Suzie you're not alone here!! -- insane BP landed me in the hospital for a few days this week. No preE -- but the dr says its only a matter of time before preeclampsia develops meds have it stable as long as I don't do ANYTHING... Even the ride home was a little too much! Crazy.
I REALLY want to get to 33 w but at least 32 when so many of the remaining (really icky) risk factors vanish. I am back home at my parents apartment - no stairs, small distance to kitchen they don't have to uproot (any more than they already have) to help me, etc.
I'm glad to see new faces coming intoi this group! So awesome!!
And also sooooo glad to see those who have struggled so make it soooo far (so good!).
I love catching up on everyone's progress.post #2448 of 26968/16/13 at 12:54pmpost #2449 of 26968/16/13 at 1:49pmpost #2450 of 26968/17/13 at 11:35ampost #2451 of 26968/17/13 at 3:12pm
Guppy that is awesome! I love the middle one where there is a foot from another sibling trying to get in on the photo. Those 3D pictures are just amazing.
AFM, today my DH really truly felt one of the boys kick. I was rubbing my belly and felt on then I took DH's hand and pushed on the same spot and there was a nice firm thump! DH was really excited.post #2452 of 26968/18/13 at 9:23ampost #2453 of 26968/18/13 at 5:08pm
lilac - thank you!
You're getting so much closer! How cool that DH got to feel the babes too. I'm glad you met a doula you both like.
vegan - Thank you for the hugs, it has been quite a struggle so far. Josh ended up having a tongue tie as well. He's still not breastfeeding great because he has gotten used to the bottles, but we are getting there. It's good to hear that you had success! I am not ready to give up, but it is so hard to pump so often and have him scream at the breast.
auraleigh - I had no idea that breastfeeding would be so hard, and it seems like it is for so many of us. I'm sorry you had so much trouble. Thankfully I don't have any supply issues. I can't imagine having to deal with both.
rcr - thank you!
I'm sorry you have to go back to work. Your co-workers do not sound like fun to be around.
How cool that DS got to feel the babe!
I hope that counselling helps. Good for you for being proactive about it. I don't have any advice to share, just good thoughts for you and your DH.
dandelionsrflowers - congrats! welcome.
tear78 - thank you so much for the link to the FB group! It turns out Josh did have both a tongue and lip tie. Our GP commented that there was something off about his tongue, but she didn't think it was a tie since the tip of his tongue wasn't tied down. It was missed by so many people until this specialist caught it. We had both released and he is doing so much better. He's still not breastfeeding well because he had gotten used to the bottles, but we're getting closer. He is able to use his tongue so much better, and the lip tie was preventing him from making a good seal.
guppy - thanks for the update! It's always nice to hear from you. I'm so glad the triplets are still on the inside (wow, you are AMAZING!), but so sorry for all the trouble you have been having. I'm so glad you have your parents to help you. I'm sending lots of good thoughts for you and the babes. Look at those tiny ones!post #2454 of 26968/19/13 at 1:50am
Just a quick pop in :) Hi everyone!
Guppy - awesome pics! So glad you're still hanging in there. You are a bit of a legend.
Had yet another blood pressure check up and got admitted (again).. I convinced them to let me come home today and if the blood test etc come back bad I have to go back - but at least I can take some PJs and the Ipad. Looks like I'm heading down the road to hospital bed rest some time soon as pre-e is looking very likely, even though I've stopped working and am seriously just janging around the house and watching heaps of TV... OMG the new Game of Thrones series!! Amazing! Sorry for the lack of hellos, but I'm off to pack an emergency bag just in case :)post #2455 of 26968/19/13 at 8:09amSuzie-- I'm with you on the likely heading to preE.. Just packed my bag and am binging to appt today just in case! I have BI-weekly appointments now and figure anytime I could be admitted... Last week I was caught by surprise Andy folks had to come back with stuff - and they just brought random stuff. It was amusing!
Good luck. Hope labs are ok!!!!post #2456 of 26968/19/13 at 12:08pm
Hi Everyone, just wanted to pop in and see how everyone is!
Guppy- YAY!!! for those babies and you staying strong and healthy!! I'm also so happy that you can stay somewhere that's easier on you and hopefully may prevent you from the hospital bed rest!! OH, and that pic of the babies?? I can't believe how adorable they already are!! Sending you lots of warm wishes and thoughts!
Suzie- totally bummed that you may have to stay in the hospital, but happy that you're keeping positive and preparing. As for Game of Thrones,it will DEFINITELY keep you entertained and distracted!!
Shesaid- I'm happy that you and Joshua got help regarding the feeding and that he can now feed so much easier! What a relief!!
RCR- I hope the first few days back at work weren't too painful, and hopefully the time will fly by before you're back home again with this baby!!
Lilac- congrats on finding a doula and also on hubby feeling the baby/babies kick!! For me, I can feel the baby moving, but my husband can't feel it from the outside- hoping in another week or two, he will be able to feel it too!!
Everyone else- wishing you a great week!!!post #2457 of 26968/19/13 at 6:35pmpost #2458 of 26968/22/13 at 8:53am
Happy, glad to hear the baby's heart is looking good.
Shesaid, I hope things have gotten better with BF.
RCR, I feel you on being back at work. It sucks.
Dandelion, congratulations! Sending sticky thoughts.
Lilac, glad you found your doula. I'm trying to figure out if we can afford one this time around.
Guppy, glad the babies are still marinating. I hope they can stay inside for a few more weeks!
Suzie, Game of Thrones is SO GOOD. I watched all of seasons one and two over the course of a few weeks.
AFM, it is definitely one baby. The other sac didn't grow between my first and second scan. I have my third scan on Friday. I am in the clutches of morning sickness right now. I had forgotten how much I hated being pregnant during the first trimester. I felt so guilty about it last time because I had worked so hard to get to that place and felt so lucky and blessed, but I was miserable. It's worse now around with a toddler at home, but I don't feel guilty this time. I don't throw up much, but I am nauseous all the time, have a ton of aversions, and generally can't stand eating. At the same time, I'm always feeling hungry and lightheaded. It sucks. Hopefully, only another two months or so of this to go until I can get to enjoy being pregnant. (My MS went away around 16 weeks last time.)post #2459 of 26968/23/13 at 6:02am
Sorted through all the baby clothes I have been given so far. I have a bunch of those sleep sacks (all cuddly material :), plenty of 3-6, 6-9. and 18-24 clothes, a good start to 9-12 and 12-18 month clothes, and more blankets than I could ever imagine. My aunt had mixed in a few little girl's things before she knew I was having a boy. I have those in a bag separated from everything else. I need to get a couple more boxes to put the 12-18 month clothes in and all the sleep sacks/blankets. Oh and I have 2 snow suits too (3-6 months) which should get us through the first winter here in Michigan.
Had to laugh at my DH. My aunt gave me a food grinder . DH thought it was a hand breast pump. Yeah, we have a lot to learn together :)post #2460 of 26968/23/13 at 8:37ammayari- how far along are you again?
Waiting for our first ultrasound is horrible. I'm trying to be patient, I really am. But, I just want to know everything is ok. My blood pressure is also way low. My regular is 90/60. When the hubby took it yesterday, it was 75/35. No wonder I'm so tired, dizzy, and my arms/legs feel like wet noodles.
