Here's me at my latest fetal monitoring, boys are doing great as usual!
Just when you think things can't get any worse. Remember when I said how hard rolling over was? Well now it's just plain painful even when I support the weight with my hands, I also feel the poor babies colliding in there. Sleeping has gotten worse, can't fall asleep in my bed so I have to fall asleep on the couch watching something boring and then when I wake up in an hour or so to pee I then transfer myself to bed. I can't sit up very long so I have to lay on my sides which renders me even more useless. Then as of about a week ago I started getting really itchy ankles I thought for sure I got bit by mosquitoes or something but there's absolutely no evidence of bug bites. I told Phil about it and he said I must have itchy blood, which re-enforces my observation that Phil knows more about pregnancy than I do and most people for that matter. Through out the pregnancy I would tell him about some weird random symptom and he'd always reply with "oh yeah I know what that is I read about it in so and so book or website." According to Phil "itchy blood" affects 1 in 2000 pregnancies (his memory was vague though). It sounds preposterous so is he serious or just making it up to so I don't worry?
So I'll be 33 weeks tomorrow, this is the average gestation for triplets, and there is ABSOLUTELY no sign of them coming out anytime soon. They must really love it in there, I wouldn't be surprised if they leave scratch marks on my uterus when they finally drag them out of there. I don't want them to come out until after 34 weeks but a sign indicating that we are getting close would be reassuring that my misery will be over soon. My biased prediction is that they'll come between 34 and 35 weeks.
