Nothing like the good ole stomach flu

I totally jinxed myself about having a story book last couple of weeks. As soon as my sister, niece, nephews and friends left last weekend, I began a nasty bout of the stomach flu. By Sunday morning I still couldn't keep anything down. We decided in the early afternoon it was better to be safe than sorry and headed to the Labor and Delivery. Turns out I was severely dehydrated, contracting quite a bit and a tad dilated at .5 cm. I had yet another fFN, thankfully negative, was pumped full of fluids and monitored for several hours. It is a really scary experience when you feel that awful and have no idea how it is affecting your babies. Luckily they are just fine, but my body has taken quite the hit.

I had my normal follow up appointment yesterday and am measuring in at 31 weeks. So about 3 weeks ahead of a singleton. I feel huge so that makes sense. In two weeks I have our next growth scan and am very anxious to see how much bigger the boys are getting. Of course they have decided to move yet again and are now both in an "awkward transverse breech position" as so qouted by the ultrasonographer. Hopefully they will do yet another 360 before their arrival, but they are pretty cramped in there and running out of room. My stomach gets all contorted and alienesque when they move. It is quite the sight. Crazy to think that they could be here as early as the next 7 weeks!


  1. So sorry to hear about the flu :( The beauty of being preggers is that your body will give it's full attention to the babes, leaving YOU to take the full hit...
    I have a friend who carried her triplets to 36 weeks (30 was the goal), so you truly never know!
    Wishing you the best, take care!

  2. Sorry you aren't feeling well, but you're looking fantastic! I can't believe how fast time goes by. It seems like you just did your embryo transfer! I hope you continue to feel better. Take care of yourself...hope weather isn't too crazy in VT right now!

  3. Boo! No fun to be sick at this point. Glad you're on the mend and the little ones are doing well.

  4. Hope you're feeling awesome soon! I love feeling my little baby move and watching my belly jump. So fun!!!


  5. 7 week omg .. omg. I cant wait until the boys are here.. I cant wait to see you this weekend

  6. Hope things are going well! You've been quiet. :)
