Alright Alright!

Here it is my friends.  Once you see this picture you may understand what has been keeping me from blogging ;-)

I had just finished painting the master bedroom/baby room when I took this picture so excuse my disheveled appearance.
So as of today I am 34 weeks and 4 days.  I hurt.  I feel huge and heavy.  Today I kinda want to give up.  Luckily I am way too stubborn to not have these babies the way I have planned.
On February 19th I will be going to BC Women's hospital to be induced and have these 3 little girls vaginally, the way I was meant to have babies :-)
My last Dr's appointment was on Tuesday.  Here are the numbers from that appointment...
Baby Weights
A-6lbs 1oz
B-5lbs 9oz
C-5lbs 4oz
My perinatologist is shocked.  He says he can even see a nice layer of fat around their not so little bellies.     The girls are big for singletons and like my other kids they seem to have short legs and chubby tummies :-)
My blood pressure is still good I'm suddenly gaining weight.  I'm up 40 lbs now.  I have a feeling at least 10 of those pounds are water in my extremely swollen feet and legs.
I can still sleep.  I sleep an hour at a time. After an hour I either have to pee or I'm too sore and need to switch positions.  I go to bed at about 8 with the kids and get up with them in the morning.  After I drop them off I go back to bed until about 11 and that seems to be enough sleep to get me through the rest of the day.
All the baby stuff is ready with the exception of the diapers I am just starting to prep today.  I feel ready. I think my body can make it.  I'll try to update again before the big day :-)

28 weeks!

Thought I would post a bare belly picture before it got to scary  :-)

Please disregard my messy house in the background...its Christmas break ok?!

So ya, 28 weeks and overall feeling pretty good thanks to my chiropractor.
I can still move around fine sitting still or laying still is another story.

I've gained a total of 10kg (22 lbs) and right now my belly measures 44cm.
The babies are almost 3 lbs each!!  They are in the 100th percentile for singleton babies!

I have a very long appointment at BC Women's Hospital in a couple weeks where I will be attempting to convince them to let me deliver vaginally...so far it's looking like a 50/50 chance.

I'm getting a little tired of people asking me if I'm ready to give birth any day now.  I have found a fun way to amuse myself with these folks though.  The conversation usually goes like this...

Them "Oh wow looks like you're due any day now!!"
Me "Nope."
Them "Oh really?!  When are you due?"
Me "March 13th"
Them, mouth wide open at a loss for what else to say, slowly backing up...

I used to explain its triplets but I Chilliwack is kind of a small town and I was running into people who knew I was having triplets that I didn't even know!  I'm like a celebrity in Chilliwack :-D

Anyway 7 more weeks is my goal and I really feel like I can make it with the help of my Chiropractor.

23 weeks

Alright here it is...a new picture.  Looks like I've grown a little to say the least.  I'm also including a picture of the day I gave birth to calleigh so you can compare it to 23 weeks pregnant with triplets :-)
At my last Dr's appointment the babies looked super!  Every appointment I go to is better and better.  Babies A and C  weigh in at 1lb 2oz and baby B who's stuck in the middle is smack on 1lb.  I'm so proud of my little girls they seriously couldn't be any healthier.  I may have even found a Dr who will consider letting me deliver these little one vaginally!!  YAY!!
Ok so here are the pictures.  View at your own risk.

42 weeks pregnant with Calleigh, baby #5

23 weeks pregnant with triplets!

19 weeks

Look I fit in the little mirror again!

Nothing much to say about 19 weeks...I feel fat, and tired but still very blessed.
I am constantly being ask how I'm feeling.  My only answer is, "like I'm pregnant with triplets"
Because really that's the only way to describe it.
Big ultrasound on Friday.  I think its supposed to be about 2 and a half hours long.  Should get some cute pictures :)

An ultrasound to remember

I wanted to come up with some interesting way to announce that we have THREE GIRLS on the way but I am still completely speechless.
I love dressing girls, I love doing hair, I love little girls.
Lord help me when I have 6 teenage girls menstruating at the same time...
Baby B, and C were all cuddled up in their placentas so we only got one good picture of baby A's face.Anyway...Pray for me ;-)

She was thinking about something :-)

16 weeks

Well here we are at 16 weeks.  Not much new.  I let Xavier skip school on Friday to come to my ultrasound with me.  We were hoping to find out a gender or two, or three but no luck.  We knew it was kinda early but we were still hoping :-)
Baby A's placenta is still covering my cervix.  No one seems worried about it which I like.  I've even given up worrying every time I  start bleeding.
Round ligament pain is the new evil for this week.  Wow if you've never had it I wouldn't bother f I were you!  IT HURTS!  All three babies are more sitting on my left side leaving me a weird shaped belly and very stretched ligaments on the one side.  TO be honest I thought I was dying when it first started hurting but it was gone within 24 hours just as quickly as it came.

I had my first positive conversation with one of the nurses at my Dr's office about giving birth vaginally. She seemed to think if we planned it all out right and found the right Dr. to deliver I actually have a chance of giving it a try.  She said I would have to do it in a surgery room prepped for surgery which is totally fine by me.  It was nice to hear someone with something positive to say about it that's for sure!

Since everything is going so well we don't have to go back to the Dr. until October 21st.  We have our detailed scan then and hopefully the babies will co operate so we can see if we have boys or girls or both!

If there is a cloth diaper company out there who would like to donate amazing fail proof, idiot proof cloth diapers to a mother of triplets look no further!  I will advertise for you every way I can and I make really cute babies you can use to advertise your products :-D
I shouldn't have to sell one of the kids I already have to pay for cloth diapers for my babies!!

15 weeks

Being pregnant with triplets is like normal pregnancy but on steroids.  Everything is bigger and more and faster and stronger and like people on steroids unpredictable and slightly dangerous.  Its funny because when you're pregnant with one baby the whole pregnancy goes sooooo slowly and you just want to be things to happen faster.  With triplets its so much faster!  You get BIG, FAST.  You get every symptom bigger and faster and longer.  But...its super exciting and triplet ultrasounds are literally three times as cute for reals!!
Okay so I'm starting to regret taking weekly pictures :-S  Remember the camera adds 10 pounds.
Notice I had to move the picture taking to the BIG bathroom mirror.  Ya the other one just wasn't cutting it.
I have an ultrasound on Friday.  I'll be 15 weeks and 4 days. I want the to be able to see the genders soooo badly but I'm trying not to get my hopes up because I know its kinda early.  If they can't see it on Friday I may have to wait a whole month to find out!!
Anyway, the puking has definitely gotten better yay!  I'm tired but I can manage even on days where I don't get a nap. I can feel the babies move on occasion but not regularly.
Well dinner is almost ready and I can't really think of anything else to write anyway so buh-bye for now!
