24 weeks and 4 days

After a horrible night sleep full of graphic nightmares and cramping and constant back pain all night. I had an appointment nice and early at 930 with Dr. Barrett. I worried yesterday because I passed this wonderful gross greenish clear huge snotty clump...then all the pain after that. I told the doctor about all of this today and he checked me and said my cervix is closed and long still which is wonderful. He says my uterus is past full term now, but all 3 babies are growing well and had 3 healthy appearing heart beats. My discomfort I assume is from 1 of the babies laying transverse across the bottom of my uterus. I feel strong kicks all over and don't worry about them not being healthy anymore. The depression has really started to hit me and I am trying desperately to ward it off. I have been out of work since Saturday and sit at home and constantly think about how to pay all my bills which is an awful thing. I need to find something to do so I don't have to think about it. I know everything is in God's hands and there is nothing I can do to change anything and that God's will will ultimately prevail. Oh well I will sit here and try to remain positive and wait for my next visit in 3 weeks July 13th. I have another ultrasound with the u/s tech this day.
I feel so bad for Ava that she craves attention and has all this energy and constantly wants to play and go bye bye and I can hardly muster the energy to get up and go to the bathroom and at same time I am going nuts from sitting here. I wish I would work still...then atleast I would still have something to look forward to every week instead of just the next doctor visit. Poor Ava has been wonderful for the most part though she asks me all day "Are you okay mommy?" and "your my mommy" "Hi mommy" lol then she will say "mommy's fine."

23 Week 1 day Triplet doctor appt update

I went back to see Dr. Barrett on June 11th (23 weeks 1 day into pregnancy) and had my long ultrasound. I was very excited to go, but it was the most miserable ultrasound I have had EVER! As I lay on the table...about 45 minutes into the hour and 20 minutes or so it took, my heart started to pound in my ears I got very dizzy and was very short of breath...long story short my blood pressure dropped to low from the weight of the babies from laying on my back. The sonographer just let me sit up for a few minutes and every thing was fine. The ironic part of it all is that I have noticed with normal activity my blood pressure is starting to creep up averaging around 158/90 now! Dr. Barrett doesn't seem to concerned...just me I guess. Anyways, all 3 babies are doing well. A: Jacob was measuring at 22 weeks and 5 days and weighs in at 1lb 2 oz B: Logan measured in at 22 weeks and 2 days and his weight was 1 lb 1oz C: Andrew also measured at 22 weeks and 5 days and weighed 1 lb 2oz. The songrapher would not give me specifics, but told me the amniotic fluid was within a normal range for all 3 babies now WHICH IS AWESOME, but "A" volume was higher than "B" which are the 2 that share the placenta. They are moving around alot more over the past week than ever. I also learned where all 3 are positioned for now. A is on my right side head down with his little feet kicking into my ribs B is in the middle breach with his little feet kicking my bladder, and C is head down. I seem to feel "C" the most feeling movement by my ribs and down in my pelvis on that side. My official last day of work will be next Saturday on June 20th. I can't wait. My body aches so bad every time I move. This past weekend at work was HELL! I wish I could work longer, but I am glad Dr. Barrett told me I can not work past 24 weeks. So this will be the beginning of our financial downfall, but I hope not...I decided I can't worry about this anymore, it is all in God's hands. He has always guided Jack and I though everything. I just have to have faith and trust in the Lord that thing will work out how he will it. The most important thing for Jack and I is to carry these babies as long as I possibly can so I can give them the best chance at life and being healthy. Today I probably pushed myself a little to hard and my body is paying for it now. My sister gave me a huge blessing! She gave me boxes and boxes of cloths and other baby items among the ones I gave her. It took me HOURS to go through the hundreds and hundreds of pieces of cloths. I also started organizing the babies room and installed a 2nd shelf in the closet...tomorrow I hope I can get all the cloths washed, dried and put away. My goal by the end of the week is to get everything completely organized so I can focus on anything I might still need and to list all of Ava's 18-24 month cloths on Ebay so I can buy her some cloths and shoes that fit her better. She is defiantly 2! Today I could have beat her within an inch of her life! She ran away from me in the parking lot at Lowe's and then screamed and threw a huge fit at Wal-Mart like she always does.. tries to open the packages and pull things off of shelves. She kicked, slapped, and spit at me. I finally just left and never finished grocery shopping. I was so angry I even forgot to use my coupons :-( She was asleep by the time I got home. THANK GOD, but she has officially learned how to open her bedroom door from the inside. So I can no longer shut the door on her to make her go to sleep and to prevent her from climbing in my bed every night...I suppose I can put the door knob thing on there like the one on the outside of the door...but I do want her to be able to get out if she had to (which I guess does not make a difference since she could not get out before) Oh well just having paranoid thoughts again..which has happened alot lately. :-D I will end this long rambling post baby update should be after my next appt next Wednesday on the 24th.
I was going to upload pictures but I can't seem to figure it out...the video thing is the only one working. :-(
