Quick update

I am 18 days from my scheduled c-section! We are super excited about meeting our boys, and even more excited that unless there are any major health-problems with any of the boys, they should be able to come home with us! They are all over 4 lbs right now, and still have 2 1/2 weeks growing time!

It's definitely getting to be more of a challenge to move around. So I try to make the couch super comfortable during the day, with a stack of books on the coffee table, lots of water, blankets, pillows, the remote control, and some yummy snacks.

About two or three weeks ago, I went from being so swollen in the feet and ankles that it literally felt like my feet would split open just walking to the bathroom, to having almost no significant swelling. I had some higher blood pressure, and now it is back down to normal. Unfortunately, I currently have one crappy cold. Super sore throat, stuffiness, my sinuses hurt, and coughing and sneezing. So I am trying to get better before the babies arrive, and trying to stay away from Ben when he is home on weekends so as not to get him sick. So I'm drinking lots of herbal teas (decaf) and drinking lots of juices with antioxidants, vitamin C and zinc, and I have been eating oranges like after this month they will only be known of in the history books.

The babies seem to not be affected by the cold though, they are just as wiggly and strong as ever. By the way, in the last ultrasounds, which I will post on here, the ultrasound tech showed us where each baby has hair! Which explains the heartburn. I hope that it means they will have a thick head of hair like their daddy.

(The only baby in the ultrasounds is Owen(C). The other two had their heads down and turned away so that they were un-photographable. )

Look at that cute little munchkin.

I can't wait to smother them in loves and never stop! By the time they're twelve they'll probably be like, "ok, look, Aunt Natalie...when we were little, this was OK...but it's a little out of control. Girls at school won't talk to me because my crazy Aunt Natalie is always hanging around, talking about pie, wearing big hats, and constantly pinching my cheeks. I'm ready for girls to start talking to me...please, just stop being so crazy." Haha. :-)

The other picture looks like an ear. Maybe you're growing an ear. All by itself..the lonesome ear.
