Hi there. Sorry I was MIA for a few days. I went to a spa with a couple of girlfriends. It was a weekend we had planned a while back. This will be a brief update, I'll do a longer post later. I'm trying to get caught up today.
I had a massage and a facial on Friday. The resort was so beautiful, and the weather was amazing. Saturday we walked around the town a bit, and then went down into Santa Barbara for a few hours. My nausea actually was much better over the weekend. Not sure if it was just the change of scenery, or because I am finally figuring out how to manage this. Probably a bit of both, but mostly that I’m figuring it out. I’ve been trying to eat a little bit every couple of hours, and constantly sipping some beverage. I have practically been living on yogurt – eating it several times a day (I've already had two today and it's not even noon!). The nausea isn’t gone, but it’s definitely better the last few days. It’s more off and on now, not so constant as it was last week. I was thinking about checking in to some acupuncture for the nausea, but if I can manage to maintain the balance I’ve had for the last few days, then maybe I won’t need it. We’ll see how the next few days go.
My next appointment for an u/s at the RE is on Friday. But I was able to get an OB appointment for Wednesday (with a friend's OB that she raves about – I’m very happy!). First when I called last week they said they couldn’t get me in for a month. But then they called back the next day and said they could get me in this Wednesday. It will be early (7 weeks, 6 days), but I think when I told them it was twins they decided they needed to try to fit me in soon. J is going to go with me. We’re hoping we can get an u/s at that appointment. Does anybody know? Do you get an u/s at your first ob visit?
I'm just really, really hoping that they both are still there.
I am having a little bit of a hard time keeping up with your blogs. The nausea makes it hard to read long posts. But I'm scanning for updates in between yogurts, and rooting for everyone who is cycling, or figuring out what to do next, etc.
