Farewell to social activities

Today I am finally accepting the fact that I am not my normal self. I cannot keep up the traditional social pace I am used to. I am a woman in the third trimester of a triplet pregnancy. When you are a social butterfly like me, you are not content turning down invitations and sitting at home on the sofa. Last night was the Christmas Dinner of the Moms of Multiples Club. I've been looking forward to this dinner for several weeks. The women in this group are so nice and have so much information to share. When I am with the group I just soak up their experiences and advice like a sponge. But looking back on it now, I shouldn't have gone. I rested all day yesterday in preparation of going to the dinner. Once at the dinner, I sat down immediately and began drinking water to stay hydrated. Although I stayed seated and relaxed throughout the dinner, by the end I was contracting and cramping so bad I could hardly stand from the table. The pain and discomfort lasted all night and I didn't get much sleep at all. So now I am back on the sofa resting. I will try to use this experience as a reminder for the days ahead. I only have as many as 46 to go. But right now that feels like an eternity.


  1. I am so sorry you can be a social butterfly. I know how that is at Christmas time. I guess you won't be going for Christmas breakfast at Nanny's this year.

  2. maybe your friends can come to you? even for a short visit.
    46 days to go.. I think that's great Kelly , your doing great!

  3. What MoM Group do you belong to? I would love to bring you the matching sets of clothes I have for you!

  4. No, sorry not making it to breakfast at Nanny's this year. It makes me sad to miss :(

    Morningglory- Luckily some of my friends suggested that for our high school gift exchange and they are coming out next Saturday so I don't have to go anywhere. I'm a lucky girl.

    Jen- I belong to the Southside Moms of Multiples Club. They meet in Peachtree City and people come from Newnan, Fayetteville, Carrollton, Griffin, and more. I'm sorry I forgot about the clothes. I am home every day. Here's my email and I can give you my phone too.
