I'll start off with some life updates...
Patrick is in the middle of switching jobs, which we are so excited about because it will mean he is home with us more often and will be a much better career longterm. But it is a big transition and is a bit crazy right now. He has been in law since he graduated college and is switching into finance. They are similar but he is basically back at square one and has to go through all the training and testing again. He is so much happier though and is working at a company with one of his really good friends. He should be taking his tests to become licensed in mid February so by then everything should calm down. Just in time to prep for the new baby! For now he is busier than before with all the studying!
The triplets are 18 months old, almost 19 months now, and are so much fun. They are getting so big and its crazy how much they have changed. It is so cute watching their little relationships and personalities grow and they are starting to realize that life is about to change (in a good way!) We have talked a lot about the upcoming arrival and I think they understand a bit about what it means. It will still be a big adjustment (for all of us!) but I can't wait to see them be big brothers and sister and I think they are really excited too. They have all been really into playing with babies and point them out when we are out and about.
I am 33 weeks pregnant and it is finally sinking in how crazy it is about to get. We still have a lot to do and we are in the home stretch! Its crazy to think at this point in the pregnancy with the triplets we were already in the "it could be any day now!" phase. Im so glad I have another 7 or so weeks left to prepare. I am feeling really good though but I know that wont last. With Patrick being busy more of the day I am handling a lot more of the triplets duty. Its been going well but i'm so excited for him to slow down a bit again. Declan was up most of last night sick and congested which was hard. Im hoping its just a quick cold and wont pass to the other two or me but i'm not wishing too hard. I also have a slight feeling it may be ear related which i really hope not. Ill have to do a day in the life soon before and after the new baby! I had an appointment last week for the baby and everything looks great. Baby has moved head down which is awesome and still is measuring big, already 5 pounds at 32 weeks! We talked about induction but I do not want to do that unless totally necessary. My doctor thinks I will be fine to deliver a big baby, we just will have to be wary of shoulder dystocia. That worries me a bit but my doctor isn't concerned. He also is very confident for my VBAC which i'm so excited about!
We are taking the triplets to the snow this weekend as a last little getaway before the baby. Although we may do something else if the weather stays nice and i continue to feel this good! There is not tons of snow this year, but we should be able to find somewhere to go sledding with them and enjoy it!
Ok, so here is a pregnancy update and (late) 18 month post for the triplets!
|32 weeks and 3 days|
How far along: 33 Weeks!
