Baby B was an active little girl. I love this picture of her with her hands up around face. I wonder if she will be our thumb sucker? She had a heat rate of 162.
Baby C was a little booger. He wouldn't move his hands, so we could get his "its a boy picture". Yes, looks like our little boy has already discovered himself (if you know what I mean). For some strange reason, Ben was quite proud of this fact. He had a heart rate of 151.

I'm considered full term at 32 weeks....so.....HALF WAY THERE!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it. To tell the truth it scares me to death, There is so much it be done around here before the babies come home.
Ben and his Dad (along with other family volunteers) have been working so hard on the "downstairs". I try to not go down there and check on the progress too much because it stresses me out. I will do my best to get Ben to do a blog update on how things are going down there.....but that's kinda like beating a dead horse.
On the "nesting" front, I have some big news. We found the fabric for the nursery!!! Laney and I went to Greenville last weekend and we found the cutest striped fabric that would work for both boys and girls. I have also been working on my registry. Car seats have been a bit of an issue, but that was expected. I am going to do my best to keep my car (a volovo XC90) and do 3 car seats across in the backseat.
How far along? 16 weeks
How big are babies? three avocados, that's enough guacamole for 8 to 10!!!
Weight gain? 13 lbs total. After this week, I have decide not to weight myself till 20 weeks. I'm just going to to listen to my doctors and do my very best to grow all these babies.
Stretchmarks? nope. I have added a new step....I now put on stretchmark oil before the stretchmark cream. Yes, my tummy looks like a piece of Church's chicken.......but whatever I can do to combat stretchmarks I'll try
Maternity clothes? mostly maternity. I can still wear some regular dresses but it wont be long before they start getting too short in the front.
Sleep? so so
Best moment of the week? baby shopping with Laney!!!
Food and Cravings? Ben says that all I eat is fruit and carbs. I have been trying to do better with the meat....but it still grosses me out.
Gender? 2 beautiful girls and a sweet baby boy
Movement? there's something going on in there
What I miss? not having a backache at the end of everyday
What I'm looking forward too? Sus and Jessie coming to visit this weekend
Milestone? halfway there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

weight: 4oz Baby B
Heart rate: 156
We could not be happier. Today was GREAT!!!!!! We also learned more stuff at the appointment today but I will save that and the pictures of the babies for another post..........I have to go to my dad's and scan the pictures. I just couldn't wait to share our news with everybody!!!
How big are babies? the size of a naval orange
Weight gain? 2lbs this week.......I'm growing so fast
Stretchmarks? nope! Ben still lathers me up nightly
Maternity clothes? pretty much. I can still wear my pre-maternity dresses and 1 pair of shorts with the band. Even my leggings are getting tight in the belly
Sleep? not great. I cant decide if I'm uncomfortable at night or just have too much on my mind.
Best moment of the week? Mother's Day!!
Food cravings? I have got to find a way to eat meat. I know my babies need the protein. Ben is worried that I'm not getting enough proper nutrition for the babies. He offered to pay me 20 bucks to eat a chick-fil-a sandwich
Gender? hopefully soon
Movement? I am still feeling something. Its not everyday but I think I have felt 2 of the 3 move. It just happens so fast I feel like I miss it.
What I miss? comfortable clothes
Belly button? I have always had a strong dislike for my belly button and pregnancy is making it worse. Its still an innie but it is stretched to it max. I have got to figure out a way to hide this crater in my stomach. Any suggestions?
What I'm looking forward to? my doctors appointments....Its been awhile since I've seen my little butter beans!
Milestone? another week down
Sorry no pic this week. Next week......I promise.

I'm not sure if this counts for my 1st Mother's Day......but I'm going to go ahead and say yes!!! I had a wonderful day. Ben gave me some beautiful flowers, a really sweet card and a gift certificate to Walgreen's (???? looks like somebody forgot and had to find the closest store????). No big deal, I know he is just saving up for next year when he gets me the most beautiful 3 stone sapphire ring. (Is it bad that I kinda hope that the babies are born in September so I their birthstones are sapphires and I have already designed the ring I want....) Oh and Ben said the two red flowers and one pink where for the two boys and one girl that were in my belly.........we'll see.
We had lunch at my Mom's. My Grandmother, Gaynelle, said a a sweet blessing for me and my babies that made me, my Mom and Laney cry. Lunch was good but the dessert was extra special, chocolate cake and cheesecake from scratch.......mmm mmmm! That's the way to a pregnant lady's heart.
Thanks so much to my mother in law, Julie, who gave me the very best gift of all........she cleaned my house and did our laundry. What a load off......it feels great. She also gave me a framed picture of my babies....I love it so much (I'm adding a picture of it so yall can see).
