Well Saturday is my baby shower. At first I was totally set against having a baby shower. First of all I am not a very out going person and definitely hate being the center of attention. I have always avoided big crowds and social situations. I think that is why I love my groups and blogging so much. Well I've had a total change of heart. I know these two little girls are my last babies and so I have decided to take advantage of the generosity of my family and friends. My sister and best friend are throwing the shower for me. I am also excited to see old friends. Now if this week would just get over!
It's been a rough week to say the least, but I am punching through.
Wednesday I ended up in L&D because the girls weren't moving much for several days. I also had lower back pains and pretty nasty bowel cramps. ON the way home Tuesday night I lost my vision for a few seconds and it scared me. They hooked me up to the monitors and girls were great. My cervix was very long and closed. No contractions. I felt stupid for even calling in, but the doctor told me to always call with any questions or concerns.
Yesterday was my weekly infusion and the donor plasma did not like my body, LOL. About three hours after infusion I started getting the chills, nausea, headache and bad diarrhea. It has lasted all night and so far still with me today. I know that every time I get an infusion there is a chance of reaction and so far I have been so lucky to only have two minor reactions. I won't lie though, I am tired of these infusions. I've been having them bi-weekly since January and weekly since March. I sent in more blood work to Dr. Kim yesterday and hopefully she will discontinue them within the next few weeks.
Today I also had to get Cierra enrolled for her second year of vo-tech. All the ladies at the table of course asked when I was due, which led to how many babies were in there, followed by many questions and lots of awes etc. I don't mind talking to people about our struggles and being pregnant with twins, that is when I don't have horrible cramps with diarrhea and nausea. All I kept thinking was " Oh please don't let me shit myself in front of all these people" Thank goodness I didn't! So keep your fingers crossed that I am feeling better by Saturday.
Oh and a cute little story to make this post sound less whiny and dramatic. Around 12 weeks pregnant I had to stop wearing my wedding rings. I have noticed within the last few months that anywhere I go I can visibly see people staring at my ring finger. I am sure they have many nice thoughts LOL. Today I had to run Cierra by Kohls to get a few school supplies and I bought a $10 fake wedding ring. Here is a picture of the beautiful creation. I am now married again with a super cheap ass ring to prove it.
