A Survey and Some Belly Pics

How far along? 15 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: about 10 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Oh yes… I don’t even want to look at normal clothes, they make me too uncomfortable. Nancy helped me switch my closet out when she was here, so it feels nice and organized!

Stretch marks? Still just leftovers from Harps, but I know they are coming for me :-)

Sleep: Oh how I love sleep, and am enjoying it. I think every night how much I love it and appreciate it right now because i know there will be a day in the near future where I will not like it so much b/c I will be so large.

Best moment this week: Feeling the babies move and seeing them “play” together on the ultrasound.

Worst moment this week: Gagging. It is annoying. I read my post when I was about 14 weeks with Harper, and I gagged all the time then, too. Oh well, at least nothing is coming up!!!

Movement: I’ve been feeling them more and more. After the ultrasound tech confirmed where they are located now… two on my left, and one on my right, I was for sure that I’ve felt them move!

Food cravings: protein, avocados, milk.

Gender prediction: It is really weird. At first I thought 2 boys and girl, but now I’m thinking it is 3 boys. I don’t have a “gut” feeling like I did with Harper.

Labor Signs: thank goodness no :)

Belly Button in or out? in but shallow

Wedding rings on or off? Still on, but I’m wondering how long they will be on???

Weekly Wisdom: Clean out things now while you have the time! Get other rooms ready and get rid of junk!( I kept my same “wisdom” from the last survey at 14 weeks with Harper b/c it is TRUE!)

Milestones: Seeing the babies move, flip and play on the ultrasound! We got to watch them for about an hour because the tech had to look for all sorts of things. She was training another girl who got to practice on me since I have triplets… not a common thing for a tech to see! It was fun, but I was a little bummed out b/c I thought we would get a gender prediction. Hopefully, next time!!!

Looking forward to next week: Maybe seeing Nancy and Will!!! Starting “couch” rest, and our sweet nanny, Kyla starts on Monday!!!! I am a happy mama!!

Here are some pics of the growing belly…
13 1/2 weeks

15 weeks – and a haircut! I realized I’m supposed to be taking it easy starting next week, so I went to get my haircut today just in case I begin to contract at all in the near future – in which I need to stay horizontal as much as possible. My hair hadn’t been cut in about 4 months, and probably won’t be cut for another 4-5 months. I need highlights, but I’m not getting them while I’m preggie. I’ll wait until after the babies get here. :-) ( I know many people and even doctors say it is safe to get your hair colored while pregnant, but this pregnancy is high risk enough, and my vanity can be put on hold for at least 9 months! :-) )

My belly is going to be HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I have to say that this is how I always look at 15 weeks – with. Um. Only one baby.

    This is my first time on your blog and I am so AMAZED by your story, I am going to keep up with you! Can’t wait to see those little avocados turn into the most delicious guacamole!!

  2. I love reading all your posts and being able to share in the excitement of triplets…a first for most of us for sure!! You look so beautiful and are handling everything with wisdom and grace. I’m voting for two boys and a girl:).

  3. Mary Lindsey,

    I think you look fantastic! For goodness sake: You are carrying 3 babies in there, and have only gained 10 pounds! That’s just crazy!!!!

    Glad that you are feeling better and were able to see them play together! Multiples are so neat!

    Much love,
