23 Weeks and First ER Visit

Look at me posting again! Aren't you impressed? I will be 23 weeks tomorrow. Moving right along. I had my first ER trip of this pregnancy on 3/4/11. As soon as I left work that Friday I started having pretty bad upper gastric pain. At first I just really thought it was gas pain, but after 2 hours had passed and I was doubled over I told Robert we should probably go to the hospital. The good thing about being pregnant in an ER is they do not make you wait. They wheeled me right up to the womens center and got me hooked up to the monitors. I wasn't really scared for the babies because I knew I wasn't contracting and I could feel them kicking. They got their heartbeats then ordered an ultrasound. I love seeing those babies. They were moving around like crazy. One was even kicking the other one in his little pee pee. (They will come out boxing) The conclusion was my gall bladder. I had eaten horrible that day (very greasy) for every meal. I never do this and I never will again. They gave me some Loritab and sent me home. That was the best sleep I've gotten in 6 months! Can I have that every night please :) I'm so glad it wasn't something more serious and I can control it by my diet.

It seems crazy to think I only have about 14 weeks left of this pregnancy, but again I have to be honest I'm ready for it to be over. I have a high pain tolerance and I'm not doing well with all the aches and pains. My stomach has been going through a growth spurt and talk about PAIN. I had to sleep in the recliner the other night just to get somewhat comfortable. I still feel like this is just because of a twin pregnancy and may not be so bad with just one or maybe all you people that have been pregnant forgot about how it really was! Or just flat out lied to me lol. I still get sick daily. I still have some days where I'm just naseaus all day. I'm too the point where I just want to feel normal again. There are parts that I absolutely love though, like feeling them kick. They are getting stronger and I can see it from the outside. I could watch it for hours. I love my pregnant belly too! I really hate to complain about something that is such a miracle, but I don't want to lie about how I feel either. I know it's all going to be worth it and that's what gets me through. I haven't gained any more weight in the past 3 weeks. I'm suppose to gain 40 at least, so I need to get on it. I'm not sure I could eat any more than I already am. I'm sure the weight will come. I started working out so maybe that has something to do with it. Trust me though I am not trying to lose weight. I want my babies to have plenty of room. We have now finished our registry. Babies R Us takes a while. That place is huge and it's so intimidating not really knowing what all you need. I've been around lots of babies, but none that have lived with me 24/7. I'm sure we'll figure it out. I have stayed away from books just because I want to do it my way and not worry that my babies aren't doing it the way the book says. Ok that's enough rambling for one blog. Here is my 22 week pic. Sorry it's so dark.

Kandice you look great!! You will forget about the aches and pains in no time once the boys are here :) You are doing great! Please keep us posted a little more often ;)

You look great! Pregnancies are different for everyone - some people have constant pain, others sail through. It'll all be worth it:).

As for what you will need for the babies, you just never know until you know their personalities. So, get ready to do some returning:). I have a lot of junk I never used, and things that were invaluable that I never knew I needed. It is what it is! Hang in there, girl - a few more months!

You look great! And I'm so glad everything ended up being ok with your belly. Those darn torturous greasy foods... :)

Amber said...

Kandice, you are SOOO beautiful!!! I love that belly... :) I didn't read any of the books either because I didn't care to compare my baby to others. And I think most of them just make you worry- so good idea to avoid them. :)

You look awesome! I'm glad the ER visit wasn't anything too serious! It won't be long and you'll be chasing those boys around!

Courtney said...

You look great girl! =)

How funny that one baby was kicking the other in the pee pee. OUCH!! Lol

I'm so excited for you and thank you for the update with the picture! I left facebook behind so now this is the only way I will be able to keep up with your pregnancy!

Hang in there!... those aches and pains are fixing to be replaced by two beautiful faces to look at every day!

God bless xoxoxo
