One more week down... ? to go.

Good morning! So I have made it another week. I am at the beginning of the 18th week. I am still feeling pretty good. I had a few days where my ankles were swollen, but the last 2 days it seems they have been okay. Tuesday I almost couldn't tell where my foot began. If I didn't have 2 inch toes you wouldn't have known there was a foot on the end of my leg. I thought it kind of soon for me to be having swollen ankles, then again, I did spend quite a bit of time on my feet last weekend. I am a little nervous to mention it to my doctor as I don't want to be on bedrest just yet. It does worry me just a bit and makes me think at any moment I might be placed on bedrest. I was hoping to make it through to at least the end of June, July if possible. Still can't say for sure when. I am just taking it week by week. I do see the specialist, next Tuesday and my OB on Wednasday. Till then...

17 Weeks

So everyone is now in on our little secret...The Names. I have to tell you it was a hard hard secret to keep. The day we found out what the genders would be, Marcus asked what I thought about just telling everyone what we had picked out. I didn't mind. I actually told him the "Have you picked a name?" question would soon be replacing the "When are you two going to have a baby?" question. Plus there are enough questions to answer when people find out you are having triplets. I think the most famous of them are "Did you conceive naturally?" or "Did you use fertility drugs." Some people are not afraid to be so personal. I have found if you listen to people, they usually tell you what they want you to know, or they must not intend for you to know. But anyways... As if people don't know where babies come from.

Marcus and I went and registered at Babies R Us this weekend. So much stuff. I told Marcus on the way there, I don't even know where to start. One baby,! Do you need three swings? Is it too soon to think about high chairs? How many receiving blankets do we need? Are three packs of bottles enough? Goodness. There is very cool stuff though. Someone has thought of just about everything! We looked at cribs this weekend as well. So much to choose from! Then there is the crib bedding. My biggest dilemma for last week was to decide on a nursery color. Took me a while to say the least. It is good though, kind of a light Carmel color.

What are their names? What are their names?

OK. Trio mama took the day off and left this one to trio daddy. Originally we were going to wait and not let anyone know the names that we had picked out. There has been a change in plans due to the overwhelming continuous question of what are their names. If I get one more person to request to name one of my kids after them I am going to hurt someone. LOL Funny thing about that is that all of these people have kids and no one has named their child Marcus or Kimberly yet. OK Uncle Bruce you got the right to make that request but even then I get to change the pronunciation later. Ha Ha. So here are the names that we have come up with. Now everyone can say how cute the names are even if they don't really like them. (smile)Don't worry, our feelings won't be hurt(At least mine won't be) if you don't like them.

2 Boys & a Girl!

Here are the new pics of the babies!!!! Finally we got the news we have been hoping for for 3 weeks. Baby A is a girl, and Baby B & C are boys!!!!! Each time we go it is just more and more amazing! Now that they are getting bigger, there isn't as much room in there for all of them. The doctor would move the little thing around on my belly just a half an inch and all of the sudden there would be a new baby on the screen. Plus, the twins made it hard because they kept moving while she was trying to measure all of the body parts. Something interesting though, babies with down syndrom usually are missing a knuckle on their pinkie finger. I am glad to say the babies all had 3 knuckles on their pinky's! They all weigh about 7oz. now. I checked out the pregnancy ticker and it shows that they are about the size of a 19 week baby. If that is the case they are certainly growing VERY well. And, once again, they are doing good! No worries at this time. We got some good profile shots. Baby C's is the best. You can almost tell what he might look like. He has the cutes upper lip!!!!

I just have to be so thankful. It seems as though nearly everything we have prayed for is happening. God is blessing us all the time, right before our eyes. We prayed for a baby and for every thing to work out, and we got 3. We prayed that they would all just make it past the first trimester and be healthy, and there has been absolutely NO problems with this pregnancy. We prayed for the babies to be 2 boys and a girl and we got just that. I guess I won't ask Him to make funny shapes in the clouds anymore...

15 Weeks

Here is the 15 week belly! Kinda crazy isn't it. I have started searching my body for newly developing stretch marks. I am happy to report there are none...yet. Hopefully my magic belly cream and oil will work some magic! From teenage experience, I am surprised I am this big and haven't started to see some small resemblance of just one little stretch mark. Yeah!!!


Good morning! Sorry I didn't post yesterday. We really didn't have any news to report. The Dr's appointment was the normal, pee in the cup, weigh myself, measure my belly, and check the heart beats. I didn't have a real sono. The doctor just wanted to make sure she could see the heart beats. I did gain 4 whole pounds though. My last 2 appointments, I hadn't gained any weight yet, so that is good news! I have an appointment with the periantologist next Tuesday, who will do an extensive sono, so I guess there was no need to go into too much detail on yesterday's.

So never the less, yesterday's appointment was disappointing for me and Marcus. We didn't get a confirmation on the genders, so I thought we could post a pic of the 15 week belly, and low and behold the camera doesn't want to act right, so I decided to just do my homework and go to sleep. One more week to wait.

Stay Tuned!

Tommorow is our OB appointment! We are praying for a sonogram. Hopefully we can find out the genders! Once again, I need the reassurance that they are all doing good, and they are all healthy. The last three weeks has went pretty fast, but again I have the worry of not being able to tell what is going on inside my belly. They are obviously growing. That is no mystery, but without feeling them move or being able to administer my own sono on a frequent basis, I just get a twinge of anxiety. Plus, it is hard to accept the fact things have been so uncomplicated thus far. There are 3 babies in there fighting over the space that God made for only 1 baby. Over the last few days, I have started to realize that this pregnancy isn't always going to be so easy. It is getting more difficult do the filing, and too much walking is starting to play its toll on the belly muscles or whatever it is that starts to ache. My tail bone seems to have started complaining about the pressure of 12 inches worth of baby that is sitting on it. Its not unbearable, just annoying! Then to sit and realize that we only have about 3 and a half more months (maybe 4) before the babies will be here is a little weird. I will admit it is torture to have to wait so long to meet these little people. We are almost half way through though. I love you guys! 'Till tomorrow...

14 Weeks

So here I am, almost 15 weeks. I was going back and forth between the last belly and this belly and I don't think I have gotten as big as I feel I have in the last 2 weeks. Then I realized today that it is really weird to look at myself. It is almost like an out of body experience. Sometimes I still don't believe that I am pregnant. I carry this belly around with me all day, every day, and when I look at these pictures, I can't believe it is my belly. So weird. I knew at some point we would most likely have a baby, but I still sometimes can't comprehend this whole thing.
Then I realized after looking at the pics on my blog and looking at pics of bellies on other mommy's blogs that there is a distinct pregnancy pose. Kind of like the thug pose or the jail pose. Pregnant women all stand with their belly out and hands on their hips. The only thing I am missing is a gang sign.
Other than that, I still feel really good. I do get a little fatigued walking up and down the stairs or from my car to my office, but from the very beginning everything has went so well. People are starting to ask me more often, "When are you due?" I feel like a neglectful expectant mother when I tell them, "I am not really sure." I assume people think I am not receiving medical care. Then, I feel the need to explain that I am having triplets so I just hope to make it to September. It is crazy to see peoples reactions. At this point it feels normal to me to be having 3 babies. So many people have never met anyone carrying triplets. I did come to the conclusion today though, that it will eventually get on my nerves answering the when are you due question over and over again.
I do want to mention that Marcus has been so awesome. He is a good, caring, loving, attentive husband (Thank you Julie Thompson). I have truly been blessed a million times over to have him as my husband, and soon, the father of my babies. Many ladies will never be as lucky as me. He has been so helpful getting our room ready for babies, getting dinner, laundry, dishes, you name it.
Lastly, before I close out, one thing that weighs on the heart heavily...there is a friend of our family who is very ill. He has been in ICU for a while. He is not doing good. I don't know the exact details of it all, but his body is shutting down. He used to be a little stinky, chubby boy that ran around with my little brother, and turned out to be a handsome young man, even though he didn't always make the best decisions. His name is Nick Banks and, he is in his late 20's, if everyone can just say a little prayer for him. It doesn't look good for him right now, and things can go either way. He needs God's hand right now.
