Week 32…..

I’m still in the hospital and am on week 32 and 3 days!  Yeah!!!!!  I have developed extreme edema in my feet, legs, thighs and back.  Wow, it hurts to move.  I am definitely at the point of uncomfortableness!  I am waiting for the results on a 24 hour urine test.  Depending on how that comes back will depend on how soon I deliver.  They are looking for high amounts of protein in the urine.  My doctor would love if I could hold out until I hit 33 weeks.  He then laughed and said after we hit that, we’ll talk about the next week.  I never know what is going to happen on a day to day basis.  Between  the contractions (a good 6 every hour), the itching, swelling, headaches, so on and so forth…….it’s not a wonder, that what you go through while carrying multiple babies, isn’t common knowledge.  I’ll keep you all posted!  Again, thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.  It’s truly amazing that I have made it this far!

    That’s good news! My wife made it to a little over 33 weeks. My friend made it to 35 weeks. Yes, both delivered triplets. Anything that you can do at this point is icing. Congrats! And God bless.

    Good luck! I am 30 with a 9 year old and 7 year old at home….. And I am 12 weeks along with triplets! Not to mention I am terrified!! LOL I’ll be following for some tips!

  • Awesome! You are doing a great job. It is so hard. I was scheduled for 36 weeks and ended up delivering at 35w1d because I was swelling up like a watermelon. That edema is so hard and so uncomfortable. I developed pre-e at 34w5d, but held out for 2 more days.

    You are out of the woods now though. Those babies are going to be healthy and what a relief!!!!!

    You’re doing a great job keeping those babes inside! And I have to say that I cannot tell from your pics that you are at all uncomfortable, but I can hear it in your words! You’re almost there!!
