Triplet NST's...28+weeks

What a long day...... Omg. I'm tired and achy. Update 28+ weeks.. Good fluid, good hb's, bloodwork done again, non stress tests...ugh..were stressful. Waited almost 2 hrs for the apt. Then of course comes the challenge of finding 3hb's for 20 mins each..without someone kicking or flipping or just disappearing. It took forever..the strip looked pathetic. But.....the best part was when the l&d doc came in to check on Joshua and we watched him practice breathing...so sweet.

Sounds perfect! What's better than a comfy butt

It came last night at about 6pm. So funny, because I couldn't find the assembly instructions. So I went online to chat with Staples, and while I was waiting for him to "research" the problem, I looked under the bottom flaps of the box and found the instructions. I'm so goofy sometimes.

Anyhoo, it's so comfy butt-wise. But, I should have paid more attention to the seat controls -- it only has one, and it controls the up/down and either lock or unlock the tilt. No way to actually tilt it AND lock it in place after I've got it situated, which is what I wanted. But, this morning I figured out I could change the tension of the tilt, so I loosened it and now I don't need to sit back very hard to get it to stay somewhat tilted. I might adjust that a bit further depending on how my day goes.

But, overall, it's so much better than my old chair for sure. Much better cushion, much better back support since it's more ergonomic. I'm sure it will do the trick and keep me more comfortable for most, if not the remaining duration of the pregnancy. :)

Glad everything is going well.

I cannot even fathom how tired you've got to be after a long appointment. I'm almost 6 weeks behind you with just one baby, and I've never been so tired in my entire life all the time. And, I feel like my hips are going to come unhinged every single time I walk, and forget about round ligament pain -- I feel like such a weenie anymore -- it hurts just to walk Jake to the bus stop 1/4 a mile down the street. I think making matters worse for me is the inability to get comfortable in my office chair, too, so sore all day long -- but, because my boss is awesomesauce, I've got a new, temper-pedic office chair arriving today. I'm too psyched! I didn't even know tempur-pedic made office chairs!

Anyhoo. Hang in there. I think you're doing such an amazing job! Almost 29 weeks! That's so wonderful!
