24 weeks

Sorry we have had some Internet problems in the Boland household. So I'm a little behind on blog posting. I'll try to catch up over the next couple of days.

Papa bear putting the cribs together.

Sitting across the hall from me is a bedroom with 3 little cribs in it!!!!!!!!! We had new carpet put in the bedrooms this week, so I had to be out of the house for a night. Ben surprised me by having two of the three cribs put together when I got home the next day. I was glad he didn't get all three put together, because I wanted to get pictures of him putting them together (kind of a big deal).
On the down side of my 24th week of pregnancy, we found out that I have gestational diabetes. I'm not real sure what this means yet, but I know it will be a dramatic diet change for me. I have gotten through this pregnancy on fruit, ice cream and pasta and I will clearly have to change that. The diabetes clinic is going to call me at the beginning of next week and set up an appointment. As I said, I'm not real sure what all of this means yet, but I'll let y'all know how my doctors appointment goes......just what i need another doctor!

How far along? 24 weeks.

How big are babies? None of the fruit crap this week, we got the real deal from the doctor. Baby A weights 1lb 10oz. Baby B weights 1lb 7oz. Baby C weights 1lb 80z.

Weight gain? 26 lbs. I read that I should be gaining 2 to 2.5 lbs a to get these babies nice and big

Stretchmarks? No stretchmarks yet......but I'm really itchy! If I make it though this whole pregnancy without stretchmarks (not likely) I'll post a proof picture.

Sleep? Its getting harder everyday. There is a lot of tossing and turning (that is even getting hard to do) and usually by the time I get get comfortable I have to get up and go to the bathroom. Then the process repeats.
Best moment of the week? My baby shower (blog post to come soon).

Food and Cravings? Ice, yes I know this means I need more iron in my diet.
Movement? Somebody going most all of the time. The other night I was laying in bed (duh) and about to doze off when I felt this huge earth quaking, bed bouncing jolt. I mean I have felt kicks, turns and punches.....this was different. I'm glad it only happened once I think I would have freaked out if it would have happen again.
What I miss? Getting out of the house (besides for doctors appointment). I just want to go to target!!!!!
Belly Button? If it hasn't popped out by now, I don't think it will. I guess only time will tell.
Looking forward too? Well, the Baby Showers are over. The house remodel is over (almost). I guess we are looking forward to the arrival of our babies.......but not to soon, we got to keep them cooking for AT LEAST 6 more weeks.
Milestone? Viability, a huge milestone in a triplet pregnancy.

  1. So excited to hear about the progress. David and I are praying hard and will be thinking about you guys every step of the way. Let me know if I can do anything to help- my kids aren't back into the third week of August so I can come be helpful- we also have a wedding in Spartanburg on August 21 so maybe we can stop in and see Momma and Papa Bear too! Love you so much and so freaking proud of you!
