31 weeks!

I know I've been pretty quiet lately, but quiet is good when you're 31 weeks pregnant with triplets!  I have been so busy getting all of my ducks in a row lately, blogging has been simmering on the back burner.  Sorry!!!

What have I been doing you ask?  Well, between doctor appointments, ultrasounds, two busy boys on summer vacation and just life in general, I have been trying to prepare and plan for the next few weeks.  I know there is really no such thing as "planning" when it comes to having babies, but I have to try!  Not to mention, my kids are also getting ready to go back to school and everything is sort of coming to a head at once.  Oh, and I am so dang tired lately, I feel mighty proud to just get out of the house and grab a gallon of milk. 

So, In the past couple of weeks, I have managed to get my hospital bag packed, bought back to school clothes, school supplies, and had an ultrasound, a hospital tour and 2 doctor appointments.  This may not sound like much, but believe me when I say these were HUGE hurdles for me.  Unfortunately, I think grocery shopping is off my list of things to do.  I can't really stand, lift and walk for any real length of time anymore.  So I either have them delivered or my awesome Mom does the shopping for me.  {Thanks Mom!}

At my last OB appointment, my doctor was so thrilled with my progress it was contagious.  I waddled my way in there feeling bleh, and left with a smile on my face.  She's "tentatively" scheduling the delivery for September 13th.  {Remember Lucky 13?}  My doctor has complete faith in me {and my cervix} to hold out until then.  Woo-hoo! So that's my new goal...36 weeks.

Anyway, that's what's going on with for the wee ones, they are doing awesome.  They are growing so quickly and getting so strong it is always so amazing to see and feel them move around.  The ultrasound showed just how great they are doing and it's so reassuring.  My IP's are busily preparing for their arrival.  They've had a few baby showers and they have so many friends and family members that are anxiously awaiting the arrival of these little peanuts,  I love knowing these babies are being born into a family that already loves them so much.

I don't have a belly pic tonight, but soon I promise!  So I leave you with this...the cause for my sleepless nights.  It was on a pamphlet at the doctors office and it cracked me up. Imagine three little ones bouncing on your bladder!  I'm up every hour almost to the minute...
Okay, so that was REALLY long winded.  
I guess maybe if I updated more often, I wouldn't have to write a book. Ha!

Absolutely amazing! I'm so glad to hear that you and the babies are doing well and that you'll hopefully be able to bake them all the way to 36 weeks! I'll have to share your blog with my friend at work...she just found out she's preggo with trips! (No fertility drugs involved! Yikes!) So it will be good for her to see just how well things can go instead of reading all of these horror stories!
Looking forward to a belly pic soon!
P.S. That bladder comic strip was funny! That's exactly how I feel, so I can only imagine it with 3 babies!
