Half Way!! At least that's what the books say.

20 weeks and counting!!!  So all the pregnancy books say "Congratulations, you are now half way to your 40 week due date!"  Well since I'm for sure not going to be making it to my April 16 due date, I am way past half way! Yah! that I'm so far along and the doctors appointments will be more frequent, I will be making weekly posts for updates. OB this week didn't have any concerns.  I've gained 15 pounds!!! Doctor says I will probably be gaining at least another 30 more :(  There's alot of water weight with triplets.  We Got to see the little ones on ultra sound. Baby girl was sucking her thumb ;)  The only thing I DISLIKE about this pregnancy is the acid reflux!!  It is horrible.  I drink a gallon of milk in 4 days. Milk seems to be the only thing that helps with the heart burn.  I've been talking with another woman, via email, who had triplets this past august and she said her acid reflux went away they day the babies were born. Halleluia! I am looking forward to that day even more....if that's even possible.

So Ryan decided to get the christmas decorations up early this year. I couldn't help but look at our two stockings on the fireplace and picture 3 more there next year! How crazy is that!?!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

Gender Revealing Party!!!

So I pretty much knew we couldn't go through this entire pregnancy not knowing what our three little ones were! But I wanted to find out in a special way and I wanted our families to be there too.  Ryan, however...just could NOT wait! So he found out at our dr. appointment and kept the secret for a week and a half!! I knew he wouldn't say anything but he didn't make it easy on me. At least a couple times a day I would hear him ask me " you want to know!?"  Finally is was the day of the party!  He went to the balloon shop and had them put either pink confetti or blue confetti in black balloons.  We had both our families over for some dessert and balloon popping! It was so much fun having everyone there to celebrate the babies!  The outcome:

BABY A: BLUE confetti! IT'S A BOY!
BABY B: PINK confetti! IT'S A GIRL!
BABY C: BLUE confetti! IT'S A BOY!

We are sooooo excited!!! Now the fun begins!! Shopping, decorating and picking out names!

I made cute tags but they were too heavy to tie onto the balloons
