200 days

Today is the 200th day of this pregnancy, 28.5 weeks. After the dramatic events of Drew's pregnancy I've felt that less is more. As in, the less I blog about pregnancy the faster it goes (for me and for those around me) Didn't last time just drag on? However, I felt that hitting 200 days and the third trimester was reason for a pregnancy post. Although Spencer was sure to say "just don't post a weird side profile picture of your stomach" - which I actually had all intentions of doing. Oh well.

Things are going well. I'm up to weekly appointments now, and have been driving 120 miles round trip to Syracuse, NY to see a Perinatologist there. The fact that Drew was born at 37 weeks is good to know so that I can at least go that far without having anything rupture or tear out. The abdominal cerclage that was put in 2 years ago, is still doing it's job and keep everything shut. I've been taking P17 progestrone shots since 14 weeks. The little miss is growing right on track and the time is just flying by. I'm on a modified bedrest- which means being lazy and sitting down when and where I can but obviously with a toddler around that isn't always that easy. We spend most warm days outside lounging with sidewalk chalk and bubbles.

Whenever we ask Drew where the baby is he points to my stomach, followed by his stomach and then Spencer's. So apparently we are expecting triplets. I'm just the only one in the family gaining weight. After weighing in at 202lbs the day Drew was born, then working over a year to lose 70lbs, I've been a little paranoid about gaining weight. I'm already over what my initial goal weight was for D-day and I still have 12 weeks left, so oh well, I guess it's just a number- and I'll deal with that number after she makes her debut.

200 days down, only 80 days to go.

I wish that you had posted a side profile picture... but either way I am so happy that things are good and she is growing on schedule. Do you have to drive 120 miles when you go into labor? Doesn't sound like that would be fun.

I sure love you!!!

Glad for an update, and glad that things don't sound quite as intense as last time.
Also, I was really looking forward to the profile picture.

Boo Spencer! We want to see the picture. And congratulations on 200 days. I just recently hit my 100 day mark. So yeah, I really do have so far to go. So let's not talk about it and hopefully it will just fly by!

I'm soo glad this pregnancy has been a lot more uneventful. But I really want to see a pregnancy picture! In the above post of your baby shower you don't even look pregnant. I'm paranoid about gaining so much weight again with #2 also (not an announcement), but hey if you dropped it before you can do it again. Plus this little darling will be oh so worth it! Love you.

I am soo glad this pregnancy has been so much more uneventful! And I really did want to see that bump. In the above pics from your shower you dont even look with child. I'm nervous about gaining all that weight back the second time around too, but hey if you lost it once you can do it again! Love you.
