Things I DON'T miss about being pregnant with triplets:
-just finding a comfortable, semi-reclined position, and having stomach acid force it's way into my esophagus.
-trying on the biggest clothes I can find, and even they don't fit.
-having to move the seat of my van all the way back before I get in just to fit behind the steering wheel ( I know, I shouldn't complain about that one, at least I was still able to drive).
-having to spend months sleeping on the sofa bed because I couldn't get into my bed.
-having to use a chair in the shower because just the simple act of washing my hair while standing was enough to wipe me out for the rest of the day.
-feeling like I never had enough oxygen.
-having to pee every 10 minutes, literally, then dragging myself off the couch, I could barely fit on the toilet anymore, then trying to wipe with a gargantuan belly. Just picture it.
-feeling like I was so starved I could eat half a cow, and then taking 2 bites, and I was too full to eat anymore.
-having my legs go to sleep after sitting at my computer for 5 minutes.
-constant motion of 3 little bodies day and night. There was never a moment that all 3 were sleeping.
-people in public thinking I was that huge and only expecting one baby.
-constant back pain.
-contractions for 21 weeks.
-after applying 2 ointments and an inch of moisturizer to my belly it still itched so bad I was tempted to scratch it with a fork.
-taking a sleeping pill and 2 Benadryl every night and still not being able to sleep.
Things I DO miss about being pregnant with triplets:
-3 sets of feet playing footsie.
-someone was always moving. There was never a dull moment.
-being able to eat anything I wanted and not feel guilty. It helped make my babies big and fat.
-I didn't hear any crying.
-I didn't have to worry about changing, feeding, or bathing them.
Notice my "DO" list is much shorter? It was a very difficult journey but worth every second.
To all you other multiple mom's out there, what was your most agonizing moment?
Here's a challenge.....I want to see some belly pics of all of you too. If you post one on your blog let me know so I don't miss it.
