|You can't see it very well, but my shirt says "Expecting Quadruplets"|
As I had mentioned in my last post, it feels like every week I go a notch lower in abilities, and this week has been no exception. A few days ago I also started having a harder time catching my breath! On one hand, what a great thing, because the babies are definitely growing! On the other hand, I am always huffing and sighing and yawning and probably sound bored, but in reality all I am trying to do is catch my breath!! I am also having a hard time getting around at all. I do get in the kitchen here and there to grab water, a light snack, and I do shower still (but I have a shower seat I am borrowing that has come in VERY handy!). Walking has become much more laborious and I am either almost always laying down or reclining now, and am often slightly uncomfortable (but that seems to go with the territory!).
It is a very weird time for me. I love to have company, but talking can take my breath away (literally!) and so even visiting is becoming more difficult (but please, still come visit, people!! I am bored!!!). Thankfully we have had so much help from family and friends, people bringing meals, taking care of Jenna, that it is manageable. Plus, as a friend pointed out yesterday, how awesome is it that I can be in the comforts of my own home as I grow past full term size, instead of being in a stuffy, sterile, boring hospital room. AMEN!!! I will take my peaceful, country setting with family around any day versus that!!!
Many of you have been praying for our little "baby C", thank you so much! I am happy to say that I feel him several times a day-- as long as he is wiggling around in my belly, all is good! I also feel the other 3 often. I think it must be at least 100 times a day I feel the babies twitching and moving in my abdomen. It is such a cool feeling! However, my little baby C is being a stinker today! This morning I got up and my left hip was killing me! I felt him twitching in what literally feels like my left hip socket. I can barely weight bear on my left (since I don't walk much this is not a biggie) but I am hoping he finds another comfortable spot soon! That's it for now, but will keep you posted!
Thanks for all your prayers and support!
