Karen_33_weeks A year ago tonight, my friend Lauren came and visited me in the hospital and took the last pregnancy belly shot of me that was going to be taken before I delivered my three babies.  I dragged myself out of bed and put on real clothes to get this picture.  I gave myself a demand dose of terbutaline to get me through the night because the contractions that resulted from that little bit of exertion were unbearable - but so worth it to get this last picture. 

Tomorrow at 9:43 and 9:44am, my babies my babies will have been in this world for an entire year.    I just can't believe it.  

Tomorrow I'll post more about the triplets' first birthday.  Once I figure out what to say.  For now... I'm at a total loss for words.

I had to do a double take about this post. I intially was like WAIT DID I MISS THE ANNOUNCEMENT?? lol

I totally posted other belly pictures. I just never posted this final one because I was in the hospital when it was taken, so I had no way to post it.

(yep - I posted one here: http://estherchaya.livejournal.com/357914.html

and one here: http://estherchaya.livejournal.com/359379.html )

Thanks for finally posting the belly pic.

Man, the rest of you is so little that you look like you've got somehting under your shirt. A pumpkin, perhaps.

Congratulations on their first year!
Happy Birthday Elli, Sam & Abby!

I know I posted at least one other belly picture (maybe 27 or 30 weeks?), but I never posted this last one because I was in the hospital when it was taken.

They were due in November - had they been a full term singleoton, they'd have been born in November.

wow! psh. i got that big with just levi! i can't believe there are 3 in there! amazing isnt it?

and i can't believe they're a year old already. geez. did you ever in a billion years see yourself as a triplet mom!?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: September 19th, 2008 02:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
How big was Levi when he was born? My three babies combined only weighed 10.5 pounds. Some singletons are that big. Remember I was only 7 months pregnant there, and I'd also LOST 30 pounds during my pregnancy.

No, I never in a billion years thought I'd be a triplet mom. Never. Never ever.
journeytoernie From: journeytoernie Date: September 19th, 2008 03:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
i know :) but i get HUGE when pregnant. it's not cool :( levi was 9/15. so it wasnt that big. but yeah.

i dont know many people who could have handled triplets as graciously as you have :)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: September 19th, 2008 03:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
if Levi was 9/15, he was only 9 ounces smaller than my three babies COMBINED. So he was a big baby. I didn't have huge triplets, remember. Sam and Ellie were exactly average, and Abby was way below average (she was IUGR - intrauterine growth restricted).

Thank you, Shelly. You're very sweet.
journeytoernie From: journeytoernie Date: September 19th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah but you still carried 3 in there. and you look smaller then i did with one.

and i'm not being sweet :p i'm being truthful. ask anyone else!
