Week 31, onto 32!!!
Kind of like the Rio Olympics, who doesn't want the Gold? Meaning, I wanted to have the best triplet pregnancy ever and I was determined, for lack of a better word to have one.
I tried to stay positive, we prayed, and accepted prayer from every and anyone. There was some mind over matter mixed in as well, and even when things got scary and very fearful there was only so much I could do. I had faith in the system and have been counting down the days to 32 weeks. Everyday was fetal monitoring and I even had a scare this week, when Baby C's heart rate accelerated, then decelerated and stayed there, less than a week before my due date. I was rushed to labor and delivery and could not believe everything was happening so fast.
Was I really about to have an emergency C-section? I was given oxygen, then they started my IV's. The doctors even went so far as to ask me if I was ready to have these babies (insert bug eye emoijs). After "extended monitoring" and false alarm alerting everyone, everything was deemed ok. That episode made things really real, really quickly.
My husband showed up with a half ass packed suit case, which was pretty funny. I didn't even have that ready yet, (shaking my head). So I continued on, packed a legit over night bag that night and kept it pushing to week 32.
Staying healthy for myself and the girls is important, pushing out any negative energy from misinformed individuals and taking what the doctor said with more than a grain of salt, was important. Listening to my body was even more important and the major key to my making it this far. Getting positive confirmation not only from my family and friends was vital, but also from the doctors helped alot. I'm ready to have these girls and start this next chapter.
I know it's not going to be easy, but I also know we'll be able to get through what ever God has planned for us.
