It's gonna be a long summer...

17 weeks!!! Wooooo Hooooo!!

I've decided Derek has pregnancy brain. He was getting me a glass of ice water just a bit ago and I heard the microwave go off. I assumed he was warming up a cup of coffee. Nope, he put my ice water in the microwave.

I broke down and turned on the air conditioner this week. The temperature has been getting up to about, prior to being pregnant it would need to get up in the the 90's before I would turn on the dreaded air conditioner. Not so much now. I get hot, my feet swell up. And no matter how naked I lay on the couch it isn't cool enough. So, I turned on the air. And a new and strange thing has began happening. I eat and my nose gets stuffy. Today I feel like the inside of my nose is swelling shut. Kinda freaky.

The belly is certainly getting round. When I went to the doctor on Wednesday I had gained a total of 14.5 lbs. I'd like to subtract one of those becuase by the time I got to the doctor I had already eaten my whole grain flat bread with peanut butter, and 40 oz of water. None the less, I'm not gaining a ton of weight. Certainly not so much for having triplets. I wonder if I will be kicked off my flight for the baby shower for being "too fat to fly"...hmmm

Let's see what is going on with the munchkins this week:
Your baby is forming brown fat deposits under his or her skin, by the end of pregnancy this will account for 2-6% of their total body weight. This will help them maintain their body temperature when they are born. The baby weighs in at about 5 ounces (142 grams). This means that the baby now weighs more than the placenta. No new structures have formed. Loud noises outside may actually cause the baby to startle.
Baby A--if you look you can see my hand on my head. I'm a little dramatic already.

Baby B-- See my nose, lips and chin and my cute little round head.

Baby C--Hi, I see you...can you see me?
