I Think I Can! I Think I Can!

This little engine is doing all she can to keep her spirits up and focus on getting to 32 weeks. “I think I can!” ” I think I can!” Why is it the closer you get to anything fun, the slower time goes???

I have been so tired – this is a fact, not a complaint- for the last week or so. I really want to make it to 32 weeks, but I think my body is realizing how tough growing 3 babies is. My belly is quite huge… in fact, when I sit down, it rests on my legs. I can feel the boys moving on my legs (not just in my belly) – it is really amazing! Thankfully, I am still sleeping at night.

I find myself dreaming and day dreaming about when they are born. Holding their tiny little bodies, rubbing their little heads, and snuggling them close! I think about next summer and their 1st birthdays, as well as having our family life back to normal again. It is so weird because even as I dream about it, I still feel like I’m going to be pregnant forever, but at least I know in my head that is not true. :-) I will probably miss being pregnant at times.

Harper comes home tomorrow!!! I can’t wait to see my little one and kiss her sweet face! Tuesday, I go see the doctor, and Thursday I will be 31 weeks! My Aunt Nean comes to visit the next Monday, and then I will be 32 weeks!!! We really are soooo close to holding 3 little boys.

  1. You are amazing and God is doing great things (literally) in you. And thank you for being such a positive, grace-filled reminder of healthy pregnancy. When I get overwhelmed with our life, your sweet posts remind me to keep trusting and to dig deeper. Love you and praying for you!

  2. Hang in there, I can’t imagine how exhausting it must be! You aren’t far at all from the finish line! I can’t wait to see pics of these 3 little boys! I’m sure Harper has no idea what she’s in for….I’m due Friday, and my almost 17 month old only knows “baby” and pats my stomach, but don’t think he has any concept that the baby in the stomach is coming to stay for good!

    Will keep praying that you can make it to at least 32 weeks…but you’ve really done great to make it to 30 1/2 weeks so far!

  3. Mary Lindsey, you are amazing! Keep it up and know I am praying for you. Maybe some Puffy Muffin this week? Sarah H.

  4. I’ve been keeping up with your journey and it seems like you are doing such a good job of keeping the three boys in and staying positive. Thought you might also be amused by http://www.fourtimesthefun.blogspot.com – a triplet blog that I’ve read for a few years. Keep up the good job and can’t wait to see your healthy little guys!

  5. Your doing amazing with this! Reading your blog is so encouraging to see your strength! Your very close and those boys are going to be big and healthy! GO! GO! GO!

  6. You’ll make it and I even still beleive you’llmake it farther. I see noreason why you can’t make it longer. You are doing soooooooooo great.

    Your Faith in God’s Plan is seeing you through. Imagine if you made it to term and was able to bring your boys home with you. We did and it was amazing to have no NICU time.

    I am still praying for you.

    Hang in there!
