Not just my tummy but our house too!
Let me start by saying I feel pretty good! Everyone seems so surprised at how good I feel lately, how happy I am, and how well I'm still getting around. From what I hear at this point most pregnant ladies (or maybe just ladies with multiple buns in the oven) are not feeling so great and are grumpy and miserable. Don't get me wrong I deal with things like migraines, throbbing ligaments stretching beyond belief, having to pee eighty seven times at night and if these babies were closer to being ready to come out we would get the show on the road. I also realize and remember I wanted this, I prayed for this and thanks to God am blessed to go through these not so enjoyable changes in order to hold not just one but four precious babies in my arms.
Lately I have been feeling lots and lots of kicks, punches, rolls, you name it... it's very exciting! It seems the girls are WAY more active than the boys, they never stop moving. Today we had our 23 week appointment and the doctor reassured us the boys are fine and are kicking just as much I just can't feel them because of their positioning. The babies' fluids, muscle tone, brains, tummies, and bladders all looked great! Brody, our gate keeper, weighed in at 1lb 8oz. Baxlyn is the smallest weighing 1lb 3oz. Korbin and Kylee both weighed in at 1lb 5oz.
The past few weeks Bret and I (mostly Bret) have worked really hard on getting the house ready for the babies arrival. We have managed to rearrange the living room to accommodate the babies and all their accessories. We installed foam mats on the living room floor not only to protect the carpet but the babies as well. The furniture arrived last week and man it was a tight squeeze to fit two cribs and a dresser/changing table in each room, but they are super cute and I cant wait until the nurseries are complete!
Here's a sneak peek of their rooms!
We cannot thank you enough for your prayers and support
and will update you again after Tuesday's appointment!
