|Finn was the ring bearer for our Nieces beautiful wedding last weekend. His little outfit kills me.|
Just cooking babies over here still. It's been pretty quiet for I am trying my best to just stay down. It's 100+ degrees outside and I try and avoid it at all costs.
I took a breastfeeding class a few days ago and when I walked in I felt the other pregnant moms wiggle in their chairs trying to sneak a peak at my bigger than normal belly. I'm pretty sure they all thought they were big until I waddled into the room. I'm sure I would do the exact same thing since most Moms pregnant with triplets are on strict bed rest by now and you just don't see belly's like mine very often.
|30 weeks! Horrible picture! I don't get dressed much these days and when I do....|
I'm 30 weeks! This is a big milestone. Can I just say Braxton Hicks while pregnant with triplets are SO INTENSE. All of the baby clothes, bibs, and burp cloths are washed and put away. We have all 3 cribs set up and ready. I'm relieved that their bedroom is just big enough to fit all three. Just gotta figure out how and where the 2nd changing station is going to be and grab a couple more things and we will be ready! Hopefully I go at least 2 more weeks (I can and I will), but preferably 5-6 more. Honestly the terrified side of me is ruling over the excitement. But I know that once I meet these precious babies I will fall in love with them and after a short time it will start to feel like they've always been here. I'm still in shock that I'm having triplets, it's hard to imagine a time in the future where I will feel like it was meant to be.
My Dr doubled my iron but I still love to eat ice. I don't have huge cravings this pregnancy which is so crazy because with the boys my cravings were INTENSE! I do crave sushi or actually wasabi. I only do this when I'm pregnant. I order a veggie roll and I mix the wasabi with my soy sauce except I make a fine paste...lots of wasabi. It actually has to burn through my nostrils and pretty much clear my sinuses or I'm just not satisfied. Ryan thinks it's so gross. With Finn I literally craved the burn. We finally got Finn to eat some sushi last night! He's a very picky eater but he loved it. Ryan and I pretty much gave each other high fives through eye contact afterwards, kinda always been our goal for our kids to eat sushi.
A few weeks ago I went to our first triplet play date. There is a group of Utah Moms who frequently get together and all have one thing in common...triplets. We met at an indoor food court that had a play area with only one entrance/exit, which I learned will soon be my best friend. There were triplets everywhere of all ages, some fraternals, and some identicals. As I talked to each Mom I had to giggle because each one during our conversation would stop talking, look around, and say, "wait....hmmm...oh...ok...there he/she is". And that's when it hit me, they were counting to 3 in their heads and that I too will be counting to 3 a whole lot in the years to come. They were all very well behaved. There was no fighting and it was astonishing to watch the parents wrangle up there children/babies when it was time to stop playing and to go eat, I never heard any whining or complaints. All the Mom's are very supportive of each other and I'm so grateful to have all these new friends who know exactly what I'm going through. Of course I do find myself falling in love with the little blonde boys, especially if they're extra smiley. My eyes are drawn to them and nothing makes me happier to watch them play. Grins on their faces with a little bit of drool dripping down their sweet chins.
|Triplet play group. Look closely, can you spot all the triplets? |
Finn turned 5 a few weeks ago and we managed to put together a small birthday party for him. He loved it and is beyond excited to start kindergarten in just 3 weeks.
