19w4d quick update

We just got back from our infant care class at the hospital. It was just wonderful and so helpful. We stayed after talking with the instructor/nurse and found out that we live up the street from her son and she goes to my church. What a small world! The class was fantastic and informative and I am SO glad we went. I think Brian even may have ENJOYED it. ha ha! He got to change a diaper and swaddle. It was cute.
I think I was the biggest looking pregnant woman in the class and I was the fewest weeks pregnant. Everyone else was anywhere between 30-39 weeks. We all had to go around and introduce ourselves and tell how far along we were and everyone gasped when I said I was only 19 and 1/2 weeks - with triplets. One girl was due in 4 days and I was definitely bigger than her. It was funny :)

At 3:45 this afternoon, I finally got word that I am approved to see Dr. Devore tomorrow. I was so nervous that the insurance would deny me! This insurance business is a real pain. But, I am just happy that we can go tomorrow. I just love seeing the babies!!! Even though the night before an ultrasound is hardly restful!

I am adjusting to the modified bedrest - laying down most of my time. I know that it sounds good to some of you but it isn't as easy as it sounds. I really want to jump up and "go go go!" It gets tough laying for so long b/c a spot will get really sore (my hip or shoulder) and turning over is a painful event - not easy at all!
Still experiencing lots of the same fun - shortness of breath, extremely tired, etc. Now, I've got these cramps in my upper back - very painful.
I need to go shopping for a pair of new pants. I am bursting out of my large maternity pants and I only have one other pair that fits still. The shorts are still fine but not for long since its getting cooler. I can definitely feel myself growing! Like actual growing pains/aches. What an incredible feeling. I just keep getting bigger and bigger!!! I'll have to graduate to exclusively wearing maternity underwear only pretty soon. I know...TMI!!!
I feel them move occasionally - mostly baby c (the one laying across the top). Its so cool :)
Thanks for your prayers and keep them up as we approach the big 20 week mark - so exciting!
Stay tuned!!!
Much Love,
Cindy
