Catching Up

Yesterday was our last RE appointment. We'll miss them, but being able to streamline our appointment schedule sure will be nice. They did one last quicky ultrasound and took some blood. Later that afternoon, they called to tell us Trina no longer had to take PIO shots. YAY! Seeing both doctors has been kind of a pain, but it has allowed us so many glimpses of the trips, that I can't complain. Everytime we see them it's more and more amazing. Trina is now over 12 weeks pregnant so we're graduating to the Peri's care only.

Trina has started craving my favorite foods. These are things she may or may not have eaten in the past or has even hated. She's gone through an entire gallon of my favorite ice cream, several bags of my favorite chips and yesterday, out of the blue, suggested we go to my favorite restaurant. She doesn't even like the place. I'm pretty sure it's because my babies already have good taste in food. :) She's also started having some very odd hallucinations. She smelled pot smoke really strongly in our kitchen, even though the windows were closed and it didn't appear that anyone was smoking in the vicinity of our house. Then later she tasted cigarette smoke at the back of her throat. She said it was like someone had ashed in her drink. Very strange.

Trina has had 2 nearly nausea free days this week. I'm hoping this means she's going to eventually leave the vomiting behind and actually get to enjoy this next trimester. She's started being able to eat more as the nausea has slowly started to fade. She still has to eat small amounts often and eat those amounts very slowly. Otherwise, it's vomit city. A few days ago she vomited so hard she broke some tiny blood vessels in her eyelids and on her neck. :(

Unfortunately, Trina's cervix is already shortening due to the weight of 3 babies. It went from 3.4cm to 2.9cm in 2 weeks. Tomorrow morning she's getting a cerclage. We're both worried about her being under anesthesia, but we're more worried about miscarriage due to incompetent cervix. Please, please let this work.

Here are the newest belly shots.

Glad to hear that Trina is feeling better (from time to time)and that the babies are looking good. I hate that she has to get a cerclage already but I am glad that if she needs one- they figured it out sooner rather than later.

YAY to graduating from Re! Double YAY for being done with the PIO shots. When I read that, my butt nearly screamed. I didnt realize she had to continue them so long. I will be thinking of you and Trina tomorrow and I have my fingers crossed that cerclage keeps those babies in there as long as possible.

Crossing and praying about the cerclage AND the nausea. It's whole job is to work, right ? Let's just hope it does it's job ! :)

Good move on the cerclage.

I did PIO shots for 14 weeks, so I feel for Trina! Such a pain in the ass.
Sorry she has to get a cerclage, but not surprised. My trip friend did as well, them went on bedrest. But she managed to deliver at 36 wks with these precautions.
Better to be safe with those babies!

Yay for 12 weeks! Glad that the babies are moving along really well. Also glad to hear that the vomiting is finally giving her a break from time to time.
