Hi all! I finally got my internet back so I thought I would check in with everyone! The move went great so far...we still have our storage unit to do and then set up dh's office. It'll be nice to get it all done especially before the end on January as that is my take it easy cut-off (self-inposed) and I really don't want to have to get into it with dh.

We had our 20 (and 22) week u/s and everyone is looking great! They are each about a pound and I was able to learn what parts of what baby are poking me. Theya re each getting their own personalities and it is so amazing. Baby C is nice and high in my chest and is really calm. Baby A is a bit more active and sits with 2 little legs, knees and feet at my bladder. Both of them are vertex (even though the dr. says it doesn't really matter with a c/s). Then there is baby B...the troublemaker If I go 1-1/2 hours without eating, I hear about it. Not to mention being woken up in the middle of the night 3-4 times a week. And of course, breech. This was the one that was a week behind the other 2 at our 1st u/s and I immediately said, "that's my girl and she is going to be trouble."

Okay, I'm going to go check the co-ops I'm in but I will read through everyone's other posts later and get caught up.

BTW,

:
Do you know how tempting it was when we found out to change the decor? Just for a second I thought about going with something more frilly. But I'm sticking with Pooh and just adding a little pink to the lavendar, sage, yellow and white.

Me too!! My two girls are two years apart, and I love doing the whole matching outfit thing!! How fun to dress all three at once!!

Of course, we all realize how much work you have in front of you....but it will be loads of fun too!!

Oh, and my moms friend just found out her daughter is having QUADS!! After ten years of trying everything! I told her about you and how you just found out you are having three daughters...she said she hopes she has at least one boy!

OMG! QUADS!!!!! That is going to be so cool and soooo tough, too. Tell them to get Dr. Luke's book "Expecting Twins, Triplets and Quads" most of the other books seem to be about twins with some paragraphs about the higher orders. The doctor said the chance of all girls is 12% so she would only have a 6% chance of all girls.

The girls...yeah! I have two so far...not sure about this one but I love having all girls thus far! I think that girl stuff is soo much neater and there is no problem if they want to play with cars or other boy things either.

You said you are going with a pooh theme right? you should check out Target they have classic pooh stuff and they have some things that are pink and a little frilly girly. What fun. Hope all keeps going well

Boys are so cute when you put them in those little suits for fancy events. Other than that...jeans?

Oh, the cutest thing is a little boy in jeans, a button down plaid shirt, and little "work" boots....

Of course, I am little biased!!
