At last weeks peri appointment, Trina mentioned to the Dr that she sometimes wakes up with menstrual type cramps. Doc said it's probably dehydration cramps due to her not drinking enough water during the night. Trina countered that she generally drinks 16oz or so overnight. Doc ended up giving her a Rx for Albuter0l to take as needed for cramps. Yesterday morning Trina woke up with intense cramps. They started at the bottom left of her abdomen and radiated around to her lower back. She drank a lot of water, laid on her left side and took a pill. They faded some but then came back. It scared us both. We ended up with an emergency peri appointment. They hooked Trina up to the contraction monitor. Even though she was still cramping a little, nothing registered on the monitor. Doc says she's sure they were contractions and wants her to take the pills every 6 hours instead of only when she has cramps.
Before we left, the nurse took us into the ultrasound room. She said she wanted us to have a peek at the babies to calm our nerves. It was such a sweet gesture. She didn't take measurements or have any other agenda. Just a chance to see our babies for peace of mind. They were so cute. Two of them were really interacting with each other and the third was napping. She pointed out all three heartbeats and let us watch them for a few minutes.
