Well a week and 3 doctor's appointments later, I guess I will post something. Who would have guessed, but word on the street is that I will be delivering at 36 weeks unless by some total freak accident, the triplets decide they would like to come before then. I had high risk appointment last week (which if you ask me we can discontinue at this point because obviously this is not a high risk pregnancy) things were Great! Had OB appointment Wednesday...things were Great! Had high risk appointment today...things were Great! I sound disappointed huh? I am and I am not...First I just am so dang impatient. I never expected to make it this far, and I just want to meet my babies something terrible. However, I know that deep down, I really want to make 36 weeks too. It's hard to explain. I truly truly with all my heart, mind, soul, and crippled body, want the healthiest babies I can have. It does give me great excitement that I can and probably will be able to bypass the NICU if I make it to 36 weeks. We found out today, the babies all weigh approximately 4 to 4 1/2 pounds with the margin of error. GO BABIES!!! 2 more weeks and they should be about 5 pounds. Is that not a miracle? I can't imagine how I will feel physically. This last week has been bringing new and uncomfortable pains into the picture. The boys seem to always be laying on top of my lower two rib bones. I have noticed considerably more back pains. I am also realizing the incredible abilities of the human body...well, my human body in particular. Being 5'3" and pushing 170 lb. I have managed to deal with this really well.
So long story short, my delivery is scheduled for 10/6/09. I have no reason to think they will arrive before then the way things have went so far. Minimal contractions here and there, no dilating...I can't even get a 1 or 2 on the dilation scale...looks like they will be Libras.
I posted a pic of the 33 week belly...might as well call it the 34 week belly...I will be 34 weeks tomorrow. No close up though...I decided it is too yucky and someone might zoom in on my stretch marks...yuck!
