27 weeks today

Today is 27 weeks, just a week away from our next big goal of 28. Our growth scan was today and the girls are 1 lb 15 oz each followed by their brother who is 1 lb 10 oz. They all showed great lung development, heart function and blood flow so things with the babies are going as good as they could be.

I'm posting a tummy picture after many requests. I am growing by the day at this point, I can't believe I can grow this quickly and that there is still room for more!

Thanks as always for your prayers and well wishes,

26 week update

26 weeks yesterday and the babies are still doing great! We've been in the hospital for 6 weeks now. I don't think anyone thought we would get this far when I was admitted. The babies are growing and growing and growing. As big as I am starting to get, it is so encouraging to watch my stomach expand and to know that they are getting stronger everyday and will be here before we know it.
As always, everyone in the family has been so supportive, helping with Ashlyn everyday. She is hanging in there and had been handling all of this so well. Mark is doing great too. He is so supportive and gets me through all of the emotional ups and downs of being in the hospital.... dealing with 3 criers should be no problem for him after this. He is working on the nursery now while I shop online to stock up on the last of things we need. I think our house has become a daily UPS stop :)

Thanks for all of your support and prayers,

Everyone's growing!

We had our 25 week growth scan today and everyone is doing great. All babies have normal heartrates, lung function and are growing perfectly. Baby boy A is 1 lb 4 oz, baby girl B is 1 lb 7 oz and baby girl C is 1 lb 8 oz. All of the doctors are very happy will how well they are progressing and are amazed that all three babies are doing so well. Things are getting pretty squished in there though, watching them through ultrasound now, you can see them kicking and swinging their arms at each other trying to find a little room. I can't believe they have so much longer to go. No wonder why I have so many contractions, they are probably dying to get out!

Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. These babies are certainly blessed with wonderful friends and family!

24 weeks and counting

We have finally made it to 24 weeks. When I was admitted four weeks ago we weren't sure we would get to this point (and it seemed so far away!) but we have. Getting this far will give our little ones a much better chance and everyday from here on out is just one more day for them to grow and get stronger.

Thanks so much to everyone for their prayers, support and help. We couldn't do it without you.

Nana's Prayers

Ashlyn, Bruce & I just left the hospital after visiting Jessica, Mark, and the tiny little Watson Three. Jessica's spirit and sense of humor are nothing short of remarkable. Mark hovers protectively every day, and Ashlyn...she misses her mom but we are keeping her busy, or she is keeping us busy.
Over three weeks in the hospital and I am convinced that all our wonderful, wonderful friends and relatives prayers, as well as some special intervention from Grandpa Riney in heaven, are keeping the babies where they need to be. The triplets are in for quite a life with such great parents and a host of relatives, all just waiting and praying...thanks to all of you!!
