Today we had a quick visit to Kaiser for some scheduled blood work at the lab. Rachel will be 14 weeks tomorrow and is experiencing a lot of discomfort, morning sickness and fatigue. Eating is still a challenge for her, but she seems to power through it – even when she doesn’t really feel like it. We hope that the morning sickness starts to dissipate sooner, rather than later!
We planned a men’s outing up to the mountains/Reno for the weekend. We got to do a little gambling and went out and played in the snow for a day! (Black Rock Desert in Nevada) I know that I won’t be able to “get away” like that in the very near future, so it was really nice to be able to get out with the boys for one last trip!
Back on the home front – I am feeling a bit challenged shopping, cooking and cleaning, but it is definitely rewarding knowing that Rachel doesn’t have to do more than she should. After all she is growing 3 babies and that is on top of working a full time job! I read a post on the Tips on Triplets blog that I have used as my mantra when I am feeling tired and overworked- “Don’t Be A DICK!!!” 🙂 It definitely helps my mindset when I am feeling sorry for myself.
