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.
