September 16th- 21 weeks 4 days

Well its been a while since I posted. Not much going on here with the babies except they are really starting to kick now. I have been feeling them since about 16 weeks, you know the fluttering. I think I was able to recognize it right away because I already had a baby and all mothers know, even though it's been 10 years for me, you don't forget that feeling. It's wonderful! They move randomly throughout the day but really get moving around 6 pm but calm down by the time I am going to sleep, I hope that's a good sign for future sleeping patterns. For all those mom's who ask me do I feel them all over. Yes, it feels like I have a full term baby in there and he or she is kicking me and then punching me and that's why I feel it in different spots. However we all know that's not the case. I go in for another ultra-sound on Friday and hope to report great progress. I feel like I am always eating so I hope it shows in their weights because it's not showing in mine. I've never been the kind of person to have problems gaining weight before but I am having a hard time now. Go figure! If that's not irony for you, I don't know what is.

Ok this is completely off the baby topic but as I am typing I received a call that said unknown name, which I didn't answer because I figured it was a sales call. Then a minute later the Rancho police called and said that 911 was called from my number and if we made a call. I said no. He asked if I maybe was dialing a 951 number my mistake and I said no. He said he would stop by just in case, I said no problem. Well I began to think and realized I did call my husband Vic to see if he was on his way home from work, his number starts 921. So the police came, they were very nice. I felt like an idiot and apologized for wasting their time. They told me that dispatch called me but it went to voicemail, oh I said that was the unknown name and number. He asked me what did it say when he called for me to pick-up. I told him it said private name/private number which I told him half our family comes up as private so I answered. I again apologized and he was very nice about it. So Vic just called me and I told him what happened, he said how sad that I am resorting to 911 calls to get some excitement in my life. He cracks me up! Well just a warning to everyone becareful when you dial.

Ok back to the update... I have my 1st Baby Shower coming up and am starting to get excited. It has been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy like I should with all the complications. The first 14 weeks I was so sick and nautious then I had about a week of non-complications between the nausea ending and when the complications began. So these last 3 weeks of rest and relaxation have kept the complications away and I think I am just now getting a chance to enjoy this pregnancy. It's also hard to get excited about the babies when you are so worried about their survival but I am staying positive, praying, and leaving this in the Lords hands. Only he knows what plans he has for us. I can't wait for my 24 weeks because that's when they consider the pregnancy viable and chance of survival if delivered after that is possible. So a few more weeks to reach that major milestone. Well must go eat some more it's been a couple hours since I've had a meal and that's too long. Must feed and nourish my babies!

    hi! I found you blog and saw that we're just 6 days apart from our pregnancies. I am 23 weeks 1 day pregnant with triplets too!! I've had many complications these last weeks but I'm holding on to these babies with all my might. I'm currently admitted in the hospital until the babies are born because my cervix is completely effaced, though it is still closed! We can't wait to pass the 24 weeks goal so we can go on to our 28 weeks goal!

    Anyways I wanted to share a little bit about my pregnancy... My blog is not updated recently since we've had many complications... but we can definitely keep in touch! :) Good luck with your pregnancy!
