30 weeks

Hope @ 30 weeks, 4 days
We hit a milestone this week in making it to 30 weeks! Our next goal is 32 weeks. My doctors are telling that they see no reason why I can't make it to that goal. I personally feel pretty confident that I will make it to 34 weeks or longer.
The boys are doing so good. I am amazed every day when I go have my ultrasound done; they move around SO much. I just can not comprehend how they each find the room to move around. I should also note, they don't just move around a little......They turn around completely, switch sides, go from head down to head up. It's like we play this little game everyday to see what they've done! They are continuing to get their points each day on their biophysical profiles - they haven't gotten below their high score of 8 yet! :)
There was not a lot going on with me this week. My contractions seem to be under control, much to my relief! Other than that, there's not a whole lot to tell. Everyone (my doctors and nurses) tells me they are proud that I am behaving myself. I guess there not proud enough to let me go outside though. They did tell me that I could start misbehaving at 34 weeks, so I plan on holding them to it!
I have had a pretty steady stream of visitors, which certainly helps time go by pretty quickly! Mom, Alan, and Shane have been by several times and are always sweet enough to bring me something good to eat when they come. (In case you're wondering, I am SO tired of this hospital food!!) Reba came by to visit for a while and brought me the BEST hot fudge Sunday ever!!! (Don't worry, I checked with my nurse ahead of time and got her approval.) Shane's family (Ricky, Diana, Nathan, and Jordan) all came to visit yesterday and do Christmas with us. We had a good time visiting and hanging out. Later on Jason, Braley, and Addie paid us a wonderful suprise visit. It was great to hang out with them too. It certainly helps to have company and pass the time away. Marcus and Sally are on their way as I type, so I'm excited to see them as well.
It is definately different being in the hospital during the holidays. I feel like I'm missing out out on so much. But, I have to keep reminding myself that it could be a lot worse! There are some patients in here that are on hospital bed rest and they already have children. I imagine that it's super hard being away from them so much. I'll just keep hanging in there and taking it a day at a time. Happy Holidays to you all! More posts coming soon.....

You look great!! I can't believe you aren't bigger at 30 weeks. But then again, this is when they really start taking off. I'm glad I got to talk to you a little today and I am glad to hear that you are doing fine. I sure missed you guys at The Jenkins. It just wasn't the same. Can't wait till we are all back hanging out together again.
Mucho love-o,

I love the picture. You look Amazing!! :)
You look better carrying triplets at 30 weeks than I did carrying one.. The boys are so blessed to have you and Shane as parents.
34 weeks will be here before you know it. Hang in there!
We think of you guys often. We hope you have a Merry Christmas.

All our love,
Braley and Jas

Wow! You look great! I don't mean to sound so surprised but if I'd been in the hospital for weeks on end I'd look like some roadkill that the cat had dragged in. But not you. Have I ever told you how much I hate you?! ;0)
Glad to hear the boys are doing so well!
