I had my OB appt on Thursday and since I've had no more bleeding for two whole weeks, I'm officially off of bedrest. I still have to take it as easy as I can but at least now I can get out of the house for a bit. My energy level is way down but that is ok. I'm taking it easy now since I don't think I will be able to sit down for the next 3-4 years.
I'll be 32 weeks on Tuesday and I can now go to the hospital of my choice. I'm choosing to go to the new hospital. I will be their very first triplet delivery (but not my drs first delivery) so perhaps there is special treatment in store for me.
Still not sure how long I will go. Both drs are saying that it's going to be a week by week thing. I'll be seeing my OB every week now and my peri every two weeks.
On Thursday the boys looked great. Baby A was 3.10, Baby B was 3.11 and Baby C was 4.5 lbs. I look like I'm carrying over 11 lbs of baby too!!!!

It's home bedrest. I began to have some bleeding on Thursday a.m. so I went to the dr and was admitted for observation. I have a total placenta previa (where the placenta covers the cervix) and that is the reason for the bleeding. I'm ok, the boys are ok. I was given 2 steriod shots to help the boys' lungs just in case they come early. Dr. seems to think we are all ok and I can go for a few more weeks before the boys are born.
Mike was on a business trip when this happened but came home on Thursday p.m. Last time he was on a business trip in March, I was rearended comig out of a parking lot.
So I've told Mike no more business trips until these boys are born.

29 weeks - almost there

Today was my recent OB appt. The boys are weighing 3 lbs a piece and are right on track. I'm doing well too; no restrictions have been placed on me as of yet. I haven't decided which hospital I'm going to deliver all depends upon how long I can keep these boys in here.
The nursery is done, we do need to hang stuff on the walls, but that's not necessary in my opinion just yet.
No new pics of the boys today, I couldn't stand to lay there any longer than I needed too due to the weight of the boys crushing my arteries and depriving my brain of oxygen!!
I've stalled at about 162 lbs and a 49 inch waist for now. My appetite is gone but eat because I know I need to.
Mike has done a great job in running the household as well as working his more than full time job!!! Big Kudos to him.
Lauren is almost done with school and will be done on 5 June.

Not much else going on...just taking it easy and waiting for the boys to come out and play (after they reach about 4 1/2 lbs).
