The Babies Are Going To Be Here In 2 Days!!!

So we went to the doctor today and he thinks I am ready to deliver! We go in Wednesday morning for my c-section! I will be 34 weeks and 2 days! Wow, they are going to be here in two days! I will probably be in the hospital until Saturday night or Sunday morning. Please feel free to stop in and see me and the babies (if they are healthy enough) on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I will probably need lots of rest on Wednesday! Thank you again to everyone for all your support!

33 Week Ultrasound

Today we had another hour long ultrasound! Its was suppose to be 15 minutes, but the tech measured everything! The babies are doing so great! The doctors and nurses all said how surprised they are that I am doing so well! My cervix is still closed and very thick! I think I will make it until after the 4th! (35 or 36 weeks) We are so happy! Well Makenna weighs 4 lbs. 2 oz., Jaeli weighs 4 lbs. 10 oz., and Maysie weighs 4 lbs. 6 oz. They are all getting so big and measuring exactly where they should be! We were not able to get any good face pictures because they were all facing the wrong way, but we could tell that Jaeli and Maysie already have hair! The tech did confirm once again that there are 3 girls!!! No boys this time around for us! Thank you again to everyone for your support, especially my mom and Mandy for helping me around the house last week!

32 week ultrasound

We had our 32 week ultrasound today. It went very well! Doctor checked my cervix and said it is still closed. He is very happy about that! We asked him to give us an estimation of their weights, and he said it looks like 4 lb babies right now! He said next week we will have an ultrasound just to measure their size, so I am looking forward to that! He is pretty sure we will make it to after the 4th of July. He goes on vacation next week and then we see him the following week and after that I should be scheduled for a c-section! Its coming fast! Josh and I are just so blessed that they have made it this far! Thank you again to everyone for all your support!

Hospital Stay! 6/12/08

Well had a bit of a scare. On Wednesday I was sitting at home and started having some back pain. Since I have never had a baby before, I had no idea if it was a contraction or not. Well then it moved to the front and got very intense so I called the doctor and he told me to go to the hospital right away. He said it could be nothing, but since I am carrying triplets, he didn't want to take any chances. When I got there, he said I was having some minor contractions and my uterus was irritated. (Which is very normal and usually happens at 29 weeks, and I am 31 weeks) So I had to stay over night. They gave me some meds to calm my uterus and some steriods to help the babies lungs develop before they are born. Other than that, he said I am doing great and should make it to the first week of July! (35 weeks) I go back on Monday to see him again to make sure all is the same! I will keep you updated. As of now, I am on moderate bed rest, which means, I can potty and shower and feed myself, just no chores or climbing stairs or lifting anything. So I have to take it easy for the next three weeks!

Thanks for all your support!
