Trina is still sick as a dog. She got to the point of vomiting even water, so she started Z0fran. It did nothing. Then she switched to Ph.en.ergan. It's taking the edge off, but she's sleeping 20hrs a day. Before it's even time for her next dose, the nausea takes hold of her and wakes her up. Even with the drugs anytime she's upright, even sitting she has waves of nausea. I feel so bad for her. At least she's not dry heaving or vomiting every few minutes now. I've been trying to wake her up and get her to eat a few bites or take a drink every hour or 2. So far cantaloupe balls, applesauce, real fruit popsicles and water are about the only things she can tolerate. I'm beginning to think she's going to end up in the hospital with an IV. These babies are really doing a number on her. :(

Yesterday Trina went back to work after taking 4 days off due to severe nausea. She'd only been at work for about 2 hrs when she felt a wet gush. She was bleeding again. The doctor on call told her to go home, lay down, take an additional progesterone injection, put on an additional estrogen patch & see our doc this morning. By the time she got home, she was bleeding heavier and passed a large clot. I left work immediately. She was sure she had lost at least one of the babies and was sobbing. I got her calmed down and did a little internet research. I found many moms of multiples who had heavy bleeding with clots that had perfectly healthy babies. I told her this to help bolster her courage. I tossed and turned all night. Scared of what today's ultrasound would show. The nurse found the first baby right off and pointed out the heartbeat. Then it took an agonizing 15 or 20 seconds to find the second sac and then more time maneuvering to find the heartbeat. They're measuring 6wks6days and 7wks and have heart rates of 123 and 132. I'm not sure which numbers belong to which baby, I was too relieved to even ask and our u/s pics aren't labeled. Both babies have been side by side and easily seen until today. I felt cold dread when only one popped into view. The nurse said it was because Trina has blood in her uterus putting pressure on the babies and blurring the scan. Trina is back on bed rest for a week and we go in for a check up on Wed. Hopefully the bleed will have resolved itself by then. I'm thinking it may have been caused by her violent heaving the last few days.
