Everything is Hard

EVERYTHING is hard! My belly and legs are tight and hard to move, while it's hard to get quality sleep or simply trying to get comfortable. Adjusting my sleeping and sitting positions takes so much effort but made easier when Tom is around to assist! He has also been great with getting things done around the house since my time on my feet is so limited and lots of breaks are needed. I've had my last trips to the food store by myself and really all together if I can avoid it. Showering and shaving are challenging but for now I don't need any assistance. 

26 week appointment - all the boys are doing great! They are weighing in at 1lb-11oz, 1lb-14oz and 2lbs. Their heart rates are 130, 138 and 140. It was a bit difficult as usual to get all the measurements because they were moving and changing positions. I had my glucose test which wasn't as bad as people made it sound. The doc said if I didn't hear anything by Thursday of last week then all was good... And no call, yay!! 

Here are a few good 3-D images they were able to get:

Baby A making a fist...

Baby B with his arm up...

Baby B reaching (or blocking Baby A's fist)...

Great, the kids are fighting already! And I feel every punch and kick! Tom always says they are just getting ready to hit the ice. With Tom's birth weight at 9lbs-5oz., we have a feeling that these boys may buck the typical triplet low birth weight trend, but we'll just see what my body does.  

I'm still growing each day! Here is a little visual of my growth day by day. The image on the left shows the typical weight range for a single birth as a pink band, with my weight data as dots (yes, I'm currently 177lbs). The image on the right shows my waist size data, which follows a very similar trend line! Accelerated growth much?  Wowza!

But as this posting is uploaded, we have a milestone alert... I made it to 27 weeks as of Monday (8/24)!!! Now we're practically on-call for when SHTF, but we're ready! We're taking it day by day hoping that the triplets are comfortable in their current living situation for at least another month. Next week marks the official start of the third trimester, so we're in the home stretch!
