Last week we switched doctors and hospitals. We decided to get a second opinion from a doctor who is highly sought after in DFW, known for his success with multiples, and developed his own innovative cerclage procedure that will help keep the babies in as long as possible. I LOVE the OBGYN that I've seen since moving to Texas, but the moment we met our new doctor we new the situation he and the hospital offered was the best fit for our family. A decision has never been so easy and so hard at the same time. I hated canceling with the doctor who took time during my annual appointments to get to know not only me but also the situation with my mom. In the end, emotions aside, Reid and I are making critical medical decisions and we have to do what we feel most comfortable with.
For my memory's sake I want to note that I had a bout with food poisoning over the weekend. Nothing too serious. It only lasted a little less than 24 hours. I probably freaked out a little more than I should have just because there are four babies taking up nutrients and I couldn't keep anything down. I phoned the doctor on call and he was wonderful to call in some Zofran. That stuff is legit. And amazing. And I'm planning to keep some in my medicine cabinet. Forever.
We don't have another appointment until Friday. It will be the longest we've gone without an u/s and I can't wait to see how much the babies have grown. Today, my pregnancy email update says they are 2.5 inches long and the size of a large plum. Four large plums. Here's the proof. I feel like the change I made this week was huge (no pun intended). Thankfully, it appears that no one skipped a beat with the food poisoning. ;)
