24 Weeks!!!

Well this week is a big milestone in pregnancy.  This week marks the week of viability.  I had a check up today and my OB and I had a quick little celebration with some Ya-hoos, sighs of relief and some big smiles.  We quickly got back to business though and set the next mile stone at 32 weeks.  This happens to be the "average" week of delivery for triplets.  

Lucky for me all looked good today.  The babies were squirming around as usual.  My cervix is still in great shape.  My Doc even went so far as to say I have an "awesome uterus".  All good news.  We will now have check ups every 2 weeks because lets face it people, pregnant women and the summer heat just don't mix.  I'm glad she is keeping a close eye on things though, it really gives me peace of mind knowing all is well.

Thursday I have another Level 2 ultrasound and if all is well there, I can wait another 4 weeks before my next one. Yay!

Friday I have the dreaded blood glucose test and a bunch of other labs along with it.  I have to admit the blood glucose test always freaks me out.  For those who are not familiar with the test, let me break it down for you.  I have to fast the night before and then go to the lab for the 3 hour test.  First, I will have my blood drawn.  Then I have to drink some syrupy, sugary drink and have my blood drawn in 1 hour.  As if this was not enough, I have one more draw at the three hour mark.   bleh.  

For those of you who don't really care about breakfast you'd breeze right through this.  For me, I am always starving in the morning.  Now of course pregnant, it's even worse!  I feed myself before feeding my kids almost every morning.  {Luckily they don't really care about breakfast.}  There are many mornings though when these little munchkins in my belly wake me up at 5-6 in the morning which then gets my tummy rumbling and I have to get a small bite before going back to sleep.  So ya, the thought of starvation in the morning gives me some anxiety for sure.

Anyway, all is looking good.  I'll update with all of the other stuff soon! I'll leave you with a 24 week belly pic...courtesy of my 6 year old.
