Rest for the Weary

And now, without further ado - the update.

We had our weekly appointment with the perinatologist on Thursday, May 7. All babies again scored 8 out of 8 on their BPPs. We actually got a few good pics this time which I will try to post later tonight.

Babies A and C were head down with Baby C in a "pike" position with her arms and legs in front of her head. Baby B was breech. Frankly, I'm amazed they can still move at all. We'll have detailed growth scans (with new weights) next week.

As for me, I think I was more tired and run down than I realized. Since stopping work last Tuesday basically all I've done is sleep. Granted, it is only for 2 hours at a time, but it is sleep nonetheless! I'm still tired, but the level of exhaustion seems a bit less.

We're in the final days & are busy with final preparations. We are praying for take home babies so we need to make sure everything is ready before we head to the hospital!

In other medical, but non-triplet news, Joshua had his final check with the ENT on Friday. His ears were pronounced perfect & we no longer have to go back for follow up visits. YEA!!!

Of course, there are three more waiting to follow in his stead so I'm under no illusions that we will not be seeing the ENT at some point within the next 12-18 months. :-)

Everyone have a great week! 17 days until triplets!

17 days .... but who's counting! OK, we all are. Great check up news, for the trips and Joshua! Get those lists made, and check them twice the birth date will be here before you know it. And don't forget we're here to help if you need us!

Me in a Word - Thank you! And thanks for the outing yesterday. It was much needed. :)

Jeana - So nice to hear from you! I check your blog occassionally & looks like all is going well across the pond. :) We actually aren't registered anywhere - the babies couldn't agree on one place they wanted to register. ;) Thanks for the thoughts and prayers - they are much appreciated!
