I've Hit The THIRTIES!

Yay! 30 weeks today! I can't believe I've made it this far. I'm so happy. I'm miserable, but happy. I talked with a local triplet mom today and she told me that for every single day the babies stay inside, that is one less week in the NICU. Amazing. Her trio was born at 33.3 weeks and only spent 2 weeks in the NICU, and 2 of them are boys. Girls typically tend to do better as preemies than boys do, although I'm not sure why. Which is what makes me even more grateful that these tinies are girls. :) I again, have no Dr. appointment to report. Not until Friday. I will post the larger than life belly pics later, again, no energy at all to get up the stairs.

I took the girls to Denim & Frills this morning to celebrate 30 weeks and to get us out of the house for a few. We picked them up a huge bin of Mr. Potato Heads so they are busy busy busy. Which is good because mama is resting resting resting. :)

I'll be back later tonight, possibly tomorrow with belly pics. :)


  1. HAPPY 30! You have hit the MOST important milestone according to the neonatologist we spoke with.

    Really excellent work, Mama. So happy to hear the joy in your voice even when our bodies are so uncomfortable. I am SO there.

  2. great job on hitting 30 weeks! i also had mine at 33w2d (okay, not 3d) and my boys were in less than 2 weeks. so your girls should do great. :) hang in there a little while longer!
