Making their presence known!

This has been another quiet week in pregnancy land. I've been feeling good and laying low, just trying to enjoy the quiet before school gets started! The babies are all officially moving so that I can feel them now which is pretty exciting. Only one of them is making enough of a stir for Marty to feel him. He bulges his little but out every now and then which I find funny it's like he's trying to escape his siblings already. This is the one that on the very first ultrasound was tucked way up in a corner and hard to find. He's our little rebel trying to get away. He's going to get the biggest squeezes when he comes out for real, because if I've learned anything from teaching, it's that those tough, independent ones need the hugs the most!  The other two are still pretty chill for the most part, but they give me a flutter here and there just so I know that they are there, too! 

Other big news this week is a NEW KING BED which I can't wait to sleep in tonight! Marty's kind of been relegated to the couch as more and more pillows (including the now essential full body pregnancy pillow) have become a part of my night time routine. It was definitely time for us to move on from the little full size bed that we've been in for far too long. This also means that, with the movement of  the new big bed into our room, we actually have a real bed in our spare bedroom for the visitors and helpers that will be a big part of our lives after our trio arrive! 


  1. So happy you can feel those babes of yours. :) I'm so excited for you and Marty. :) T and I have started putting away stuff that our kids have outgrown because we'd love to give them to you guys. I remember how difficult it was getting enough stuff for my two babes, I can't even imagine getting stuff for 3! Thinking of you guys. :)

  2. Thanks Leah! We are all about the hand-me-downs, that's for sure!
