26 Weeks

We had another appointment with my regular OB this week and things are still looking great. He just talked to Shane and I, answering our questions. They did not do an ultrasound, but did put this machine that allowed us to hear the babies heartbeats. My doctor said that it may be difficult for him to locate the 3 babies. Shane was amuzed when I was able to point to 3 different locations on my belly, telling my doctor where the boys were. Don't you know that I was right on the money! He put that little machine right where I had pointed out their 3 locations and we were able to hear 3 strong little heartbeats.

I am now on very limited activity. It's really not that hard to adhere to, as I get SO tired so easily. Basically, I can go places but I have to be able to sit pretty quickly. I can not go shopping anywhere, not to the grocery or anything. So, Shane is on shopping duty. He is not liking it so much. For his sake, if you are heading our way please give me a call as I may have you stop and pick up a few things on your way. (Thanks Mom and Reba for bringing me some stuff when you came to see us.) I am being told that I basically do not need to stand for long periods of time and I need to get as much rest as I can.

We go back to my high risk doctor this week and again we are SO excited to see the boys. I am anxious to see how much they've grown in 2 weeks. I can definately see some changes in my belly, but there is still room to go. (My belly button is still there!) Things have been going well with my diabetes, so I am hoping that they will tell me that I don't have to check my blood sugar 4 times a day. My regular OB suggested that maybe I could start testing twice a day instead of the four, but I have to check with my high risk OB and get their opinion.

Our Thanksgiving was nice and relaxing. We were pretty lazy and it was nice! Because Shane and I were home alone on Thursday, we made a turkey breast and Mama Jean's hashbrown casserole - good stuff! We did go over to my grandparent's house on Saturday for the real Thanksgiving feast. It's only about a 15-20 minute drive from our house. My parents, Aunt Margaret, Uncle Steve, brother Ben, sister-in-law Sandy, and nephew Avery were all there. It was so nice to see them all, my grandmother was just thrilled to have us all there. Afterwards everyone came over to see our place and check out the nursey. It was nice to be able to show off our ideas and Shane's hard work.

I can tell that they boys are getting stronger each day. Their movements are getting much more pronounced and coming more frequently. They love to move all around when I am laying in bed. I honestly do not get tired of feeling them! Shane and I talk to them constantly and are getting anxious to meet them. They still have a lot more growing to do, but I can't wait to see what each of them look like. We are still on the look out for a new vehicle, we know that patience is the key. The right one will come along for us. Keep thinking of us and sending us your messages. More posts to come.....

Much love to you all

Glad things are still going so well! Put pictures on here, woman! Even though we're far away doesn't mean we don't want to see what the nursery looks like! I can safely say we ALL want to know what you look like on a daily basis, since I'm sure you're changing all the time! :0)
