I have no appointments this week or next but then BAM! I have 3 in one week! Finally got a call from the referral department today at Dr. W's office. My first appointment with the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) doctor is in a few weeks. I found out that I still see my regular OB (I'll refer to her as Dr. W). On the 13th I have my first appointment at W's office with the nurse to go over basic info for the pregnancy. Then on Tuesday the 14th I have another ultrasound to check to make sure they are all three hanging in there and growing. Then I have an appointment with Dr. W (and another scan) on Friday the 17th. Then the following Tuesday the 21st is with the MFM doc. Four appointments in 8 days, YEESH! I hope John isn't super busy that week since he will be taking care of Quinn a lot! Actually I think he would like to go to all of them except the one with the nurse. So, what to do with Quinn? I guess we'll take him along and pack some books and things to do to keep him occupied. I also got a couple of my questions answered today.... can I do any excersize? Ummm, no! Nothing. Zilch. Not even anything mild until we get another look at how the babies are doing. How easy do I have to take it? Basically, if I dont have to do it, dont. Just until we peak at the babies again.
I checked out a couple books from the library on twins, triplets, and quads so I should get some more information from there. The one thing that is shocking is that I am supposed to eat between 3500 and 4000 calories a day! EVERY DAY! WOW, that is a lot of food! Did I already post that in a different post? I cant remember, I am claiming pregnancy brain on my memory! Well, if I did, I am still struggling with the idea of eating that many calories every day. I am going to be as big as a house!
Ok, so remember last post I stupidly mentioned something about feeling ok and surely I would be plagued from then on out just for mentioning it? Well, the plague started today! Uuugh, what an awful, sickly day! I know I consumed nowhere near the amount of calories I should have today. Nothing sounded good and I felt on the verge of vomit so the thought of putting anything into my mouth was excruciating. I did manage to eat enough dinner to at least be able to take my prenatals and extra vitamin supplements. Let's hope this was just for today and tomorrow I will be feeling good again.
