We are absolutely overjoyed to hit 31 weeks!! I am feeling humungo. Some days are harder than others, but I am incredibly grateful for each day that passes. My cervix is measuring a 1.7. It is shrinking from the amount of pressure from my little trio. Super thankful that I can experience bed rest at home rather than in the hospital. My family and precious Ryan take such good care of me. Our darling trio is doing fabulous!! Below you will see their weights.
It was very difficult to get a profile picture of Charlize. Our Little Princess will be the first born and is at the very bottom of my belly. She kicks my bladder often. Our cutie is measuring 3lbs 9 oz.
Sawyer is crammed between Charlize and Jax, all which continue to claim space on the left side of my belly. I feel him move all the time. Sawyer won for biggest baby this week. He is 3lbs 10 oz.
1. I have gained 53 pounds and my belly is 45 inches round.
4. I have been asking Ryan to bring me reese’s pieces and my Dad surprised me with a whole bundle. They are my favorite candy!!!
5. Ryan got our carseats in our Fortin Express Van!! Thank you to my special friend, Noelle, for blessing us with all 3 carseats!! WOW!!! So thoughtful!!! You truly touched our hearts!!!
Ryan has been working so hard to prepare for our babies. He is an amazing husband and he will be an incredible Daddy. Over the last few weeks he has played so many roles and I so appreciate all the hard work he has done as we prepare for the arrival of our triplets.
Bed Rest is going. It is hard. I have been down for 4 weeks, which has actually gone by faster than I would have expected. I am hoping to hang on for another 3 weeks. We will see what God has planned for us. I have been taking luke warm baths to help with some of the discomfort I am feeling. My contractions have increased, but not hospital worthy. Thank God! I have been trying to keep my bum and legs elevated to release pressure on my cervix. I am incredibly fortunate to be living at home with my parents. Mom, Dad, and Ry take truly fabulous care of me. Praying daily for endurance, strength, and patience. I have an appointment today and start non-stress tests this week.
I am so blessed by company. I was so fortunate to visit with our Youth Pastor, Gayelee, last week. Ryan and I served under her in youth ministry for 3 years. We have become so close. I love her heart and her friendship. It was so good to get together, be real, and share in laughter.
One of my closest friends, Kris, came by to visit me again. I absolute treasure her. She is one of a kind with a pure and golden heart. She offers so much love to me and I am so blessed by the friendship God has given us. She was so sweet and brought me my absolute favorite: frozen yogurt!!!!! Thank you!!!
I was so excited to meet the newest Villegas family member. My dear friend, Marina, brought by her precious newborn boy. I was so excited to meet him, hold him, and love on him. He is adorable. It was a treasure to visit with Marina. She is such a good friend to me. I so appreciated being able to spend time together and catch up!!
I love my twinsie so much. She has been incredibly helpful and has made some random visits which entirely make my day. She has been helpful in getting our nursery completed and brings me frozen yogurt nearly every time she comes. She has truly blessed my heart and is going to be such a great Auntie to our babies.
My sister, Deanna, is a rockstar. She has been incredibly supportive over the last few weeks. I am so blessed by her company! She spoils our little nuggets to pieces and any superhero items they will be wearing in the future will be in honor of her. She means the world to me.
Once again, thank you so much for all your love and prayers. They mean more than you know. Our Heavenly Father has so richly blessed our hearts and we are touched by the outpour of love and support. Hoping I can keep my little ones cooking a bit longer and steer clear of hospital bed rest. I know the Lord has the most perfect timing for our darling Charlize, Sawyer, and Jax and we trust Him as we patiently wait and ride the wave of this beautiful journey He has given us. I am blessed by the endurance and strength He continues to give me as I carry my precious loves. My heart overflows with love for them!
