This week is a milestone week! I love ’em and hate ’em. I know it’s not too much longer to keep these boys in, but let me tell you that it sure is getting harder. My body feels maxed out, but my mind knows the boys are not done yet.

I went to the doctor today and all is well! The boys had their heartbeats checked on ultrasound, and they were measuring in the 130’s-140’s (normal range!) Baby is laying horizontal, down low… using my bladder as a trampoline. Baby B is on my left and is breech. Baby C is kind of transverse/ diagonal on my right side – He is the one on my right side that pushes his little noggin’ up into my stomach, giving me weird stomach pains. They all looked healthy and had normal amniotic fluid.

Contractions have been the same – a couple in the morning, a couple in the evening. The crazy thing now is that when I contract, I can see three distinct babies. It is a little freakish. I asked if it was normal, and it is! She even told me as I continue to grow, I will be able to see elbows, heels, knees – and know what body part goes with what baby. My belly has been jumping all around, and is really fun to watch. I’ve tried to record it a couple of times with no luck… I’ll keep trying.

I’ve kind of been feeling kind of down lately. Summer is happening all around me, and I am somewhat trapped inside. I feel like I’ve come so far, but I still have so much farther to go. We have visitors coming starting this weekend and continuing on through the month of June. It will be something nice to look forward to and should help my mood.

Anyway, that’s about it for today.

Here is the belly shot. Yes, it’s massive… only to get “massive-er.” :-) Sorry, I didn’t get dolled up for y’all. I live in this dress, so you will probably see it again!!! I came home from the doctor and fell asleep. :-)

Oh, and I have to put up a Harper post because she is just the best little joy! I will work on that tomorrow.

Keep on praying! 4 weeks to go until 32 weeks.

  1. I have been following your blog for a while, and you have been an absolute inspiration! And now, I found out I am having twins! You may not even realize what a blessing you are, but you help keep things in perspective! Thank you! And hang in there!

  2. Wahoo!!! 28 weeks is a HUGE milestone. And by the looks of it, and how great you are doing, I think you can definitely do 4 more. Keep resting, drinking, and enjoying Harper. And please do try to get a video of them moving and the body parts that show:) I think that’s so cool and I wish I had videotaped my belly when Nathan and Natalie were inside.

    Love ya girl! So proud of you!!!!

  3. I know you must be uncomfortable (to say the least!) but you are doing so great! is it weird to be proud of someone you don’t know that well? :) I’m so excited that your fabulous little men will be here soon (I check every day to make sure you are still cookin’!)

  4. YOU LOOK GREAT!!!! I love to hear how you are doing, and don’t get down about not being able to go outside right now… it’s too hot anyways! Love your dress– I love seeing pics of that belly!

  5. Yay for 28 weeks! One week more is that much better at any time now. Sounds like you have some big ole boys on yours hands…especially for being triplets!

  6. You are doing wonderful and I think you look AMAZING! The essence of God’s beauty! I am praying for 8 more weeks (ducking from the pregnant lady now) God will carry your little boys safely into this world and breathe life into them in HIS time in HIS plan.

    You are doing great!

  7. I’ve been following your blog that I got to through Arley’s. I check on you every day and say a prayer for you and dad and the 3 precious boys you are carrying and their big sister. Stay strong and hang in there.

  8. Hang in there girl! It is way too muggy to be outside anyway!! Really sticky and sweaty. Yuck. Stay inside with that refrigerator door open 😉 So glad you had another great appointment.
