23 Weeks

This was a busy week for the Kesler Crew! I was busy with work, doctor appointments, and visiting friends. Work is really crazy! I feel like a "super star" when I go in to my hospitals because I am surrounded by so many people that are asking questions. Kanta can attest to this as we were trying to meet this week and had to move several times, just so we could have a conversation without being interrupted. Don't get me wrong, I do like the attention - but it is really overwhelming too! My doctor appointments went well, they are telling me that I'm progressing right along. I am still on "moderate activity" and feel I will remain so until they put me on bed rest. My travel and general movement are still limited, which I do not mind as I get so tired so easily.

It was wonderful to see my girlfriends, their families, and our families as well over the weekend. My girlfriends threw me my first baby shower, which was a huge hit! We received so much stuff!!!! We have so many baby wipes, bibs, and new-born clothes, it's just amazing! (I'll post a count on the baby wipes as soon as I can.) I have to say again how superb the shower was. Thanks again to you all (Reba, Carley, Mrs. Deborah, Lecrisha, Corey, and Krilecia) for working together in order to do such a great thing for me and my growing family! Thanks also to everyone that was able to attend and those that were not, but sent gifts. Shane and I are honestly dumbfounded by all the love and support we have been receiving from everyone.

Shane is steadily working on the nursey and has hopes to have a finished floor by week end. He's just been working SO hard! I wish I could help, but all I can do is really stay out of the way and bring him what he needs while he works. He told me last night that I was lucky to have a "handy man" for a husband. He was being his silly self, but I know that I am truly fortunate that he is able to do so much. I have never seen him turn down a challenge when it comes to doing things around the house, it truly is wonderful to be married to him.

This week should not be as hectic as the last, although I do have to go see my regular OB for another test. I have to go in for a really long glucose test. My dear girlfriend, Katy Edwards, has forwarned me about it - I know it's not going to be pleasant! I have already taken the one hour glucose test, but it did not give my doctor the definitive answer that he was looking for. He just says it's too hard to determine in one hour as I have 3 babies and me all producing sugar. This one will go much more in depth. I ask that you all wish me luck - you ALL know how much I love my candy and carbs! :)

The boys have been moving A LOT. They keep me awake, but I really don't mind. It's a comfort to feel them moving around all the time, day or night. I am amazed every time! I will see them again in two weeks when I visit my high risk OB again and can not wait. Please keep checking in....there are more posts and pics to come!

Much love to you all

It was great to see you this weekend Hope! You look great. You are really beaming, glowing, the way only an expectant mother could. Despite the fact that I was the one and only male present, I enjoyed taking pix at your shower. It was my first baby shower! I will send you some pix ASAP, hopefully today or tomorrow. I thought they did a superb job planning and carrying out the shower. You are blessed with some really good friends. Some crazy ones, but good;) See you soon!

Love you!

What fun Saturday was. I'm sure Mrs. Debra will find "peas" around her house for months to come! Lots of hard work from your friends made a hugely successful shower. Thanks to all. It was great to see you all. It's hard to believe my "baby girl" is having three babies. I'm very excited and really enjoy seeing them at the doctor's visits. Thanks Hope for letting me go with you.
