First of all, we would like to thank EVERYONE for your kind words and prayers as we continue to go through the ups and downs of this pregnancy! It has been wonderful knowing that so many people are thinking about and praying for the triplets!
All of your generous offers to help us out at home have not gone unnoticed either. At this point I think we are doing okay. I am able to sit and lie down, and walk when needed (usually to get something to eat – and use the bathroom). I usually try to consolidate my trips. I have a ton of things that I am able to do. For those of you who know me well, you know I don’t sit for long. I couldn’t tell you the last time that I updated Quin’s baby book, I have a huge stack of magazines, a fully loaded DVR, Christmas cards… In a way, it is somewhat nice to be forced to ‘lay low’. I am sure my tune will change after the holidays, but I am good for now. Jason was home last week on vacation, so he kept a close eye on me. Quin is still going to daycare also, which she loves! Jason drops her off and picks her up. We hope to continue this for awhile – for now we feel that the less change for her, the better.
Although I initially started this blog to keep everyone up to date on the pregnancy, I have a feeling that some our daily life will creep in. If you could care less – please, skip over all of that information! I will try to do my best in keeping this blog current. I am very ‘un-techy’, and also somewhat of a perfectionist! I have tried several backgrounds, been extremely frustrated with how to make a header, been on every imaginable website there is about how to start and maintain a blog (most of the info is way over my head!). So… bear with me if it seems a little unkempt! I promise, I am trying!
We have another ultrasound/doctor appointment tomorrow morning (Tuesday). It has been four weeks since they have done some detailed measurements on the babies, so I am assuming that they will be doing that. The past two ultrasounds have been basically to check my cervix and funneling (although they do a few basic checks on the babies). In addition to the thorough check of each baby, they will also re-measure my cervix and the funneling. As of last week, it had stayed the same – so, we are hoping for the same. I will try to post an update as soon as I can!
Thanks again to everyone! It is so much easier knowing that we are not alone!
Have a wonderful week! Joelee and Jason
