walk in the park

Quick update:

I'm 33 weeks 4 days pregnant.  

My C-section is scheduled for September 15 and yes it's on a Sunday. 

They checked me last Friday and I'm not even dialated at all.  She couldn't believe it and even checked again.  It hurt.so.bad.  

My blood pressure has been nearly perfect every time!

I will be 36 weeks when I deliver.  Yes, anything could happen between now and then but I know nothing will.

I think we've narrowed it down to 3 names but it's gonna be a surprise.  Hint:we are not doing Irish/Celtic names...too much pressure.  One of them starts with the letter H, any guesses?  I bet nobody gets it.

By some miracle I haven't gotten any new stretch marks.  I swear this really does work & it's the cheap stuff.

I am very uncomfortable but it's really not as bad as I thought it would be.  Let's just say this is a walk in the park compared to how uncomfortable I was in the hospital.

I watched both Braveheart and Last of The Mohicans yesterday.

I'm nowhere near as swollen as I was in my last pregnancies.  I'm not sick and my carpel tunnel has been very mild.  I've been very lucky. 

I'm positive that all your prayers and happy thoughts are working.  
THANK YOU!!

I took this yesterday.  I'm too tired to care if it's a good picture or not.  But at least the belly is being documented.

update: and Finn started kindergarten!  He loves it! He has a friend in his class.  And my sweet new neighbors are taking him and picking him up for me!  I don't know what I'd do without my neighbors.


Finn's first day of kindergarten with his friend Tyler.

  15. I had to comment because Sept. 15 is my birthday too and it's the best birthday ever. I'm happy to share it with your girls. Ok my guess is that your names are going to be a little bit diiferent but not too crazy. My H guess would be Harlow.
    So happy things are going great so far.

  17. Harley, Honor, Henrietta and Harper..... Those sweet angels are going to be adorable no matter what they are called. I get so excited every time you put up a new post. You are an amazing woman and the fact that you have made it almost to term with triplets is just an example of your faith and strength. May you continue to be blessed with a healthy pregnancy. Kelly, my phone will only allow me to scroll so far down. Will you please post the info again in your next post so I can send another gift. Shopping for pink in the threes is so much fun. Sending happys from Atlanta....

  22. This bebe watch 2013 is just SO exciting. Seriously. I can't wait to squeal, stare, and get all teary looking at their little faces and hearing your beautiful birth story... Ah KELLY! I'm so thrilled for you and your sweet family. Sending love, prayers, and joy unspeakable from Tokyo! xo

  23. I am so happy that your pregnancy is going so well. I hope that you are able to make it to your c-section date and that you can bring those little bundles of joy home as soon as they are brought into this world.
    I am so glad that you are liking your new neighbors. I remember an older post of yours where you indicated that you did not know the majority of your neighbors and that they treated you like an outcast because you are not a member of the predominant church. I hope that is not the case in your new neighborhood and that you are able to meet and enjoy the company of many neighbors. I am still hoping for that in out neighborhood though we have lived here 8 years now. Maybe with my oldest starting kindergarten I will be able to meet some mothers that either aren't members or aren't as closed minded as so many of the members seem to be ;)
