10 days of bed rest down, only 90 or so more to go!! I’m actually doing great and feeling well at home…other than my tush falling asleep from the lack of movement! I went to the doctor this morning and was amazed at how trying on my body it was. But the good news: My doctor was pleasantly surprised at how well my body was reacting to the surgery. The babies are doing great and he is much more optimistic about my outcome. Hard to believe, a week ago we were discussing how close I was to losing the babies. Meanwhile, since I haven’t been on the air in nearly two weeks, here’s a baby bump picture from today. That stomach just keeping jetting outward.
I actually got fully ready for television today and boy was that exhausting. I now have a seat for my shower and am not supposed to be up and at it, except for appointments and to use the bathroom. Did you catch the news today? I made a cameo! It was so nice to have the news crew stop by. I was thrilled to give everyone an update and show that I am still the “same old me”. Riley was thrilled to see our photographer, but quickly got bored and passed out next to me.
And that leads me to the reason I wanted to update my blog today. So many of you have sent in your guesses, so drum roll please….here are the genders:
Two identical girls and one boy!!!! Ryan and I think it’s the perfect mix! Although, I’m sure Mr. Skry may be rethinking that down the road as I turn the girls into shopaholics like me! As you can see in the picture, Riley still doesn’t seem too thrilled about have three siblings. But I’m sure once they arrive at home, he’ll be the protective big brother. Now I have to say, many of you were spot on with your guesses. Even the newsroom was right!
So the next step is to have my mother teach me how to knit. I think my kids will have a full wardrobe by the time they arrive! And I can’t say it enough–thank you to everyone. I truly believe that all of your prayers helped me and my husband get through the last two weeks. I know I have a long journey ahead me, but I’m feeling very optimistic…and I have all of you to credit for that. I have a big check up next week, where they will measure each of the babies and check for all of their vital organs. The doctor said to plan for three hours…I guess when it comes to triplets, everything takes longer! Keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates everyday. I’ll make sure to post an update on the blog next week.
