Heavy Already!

Yes, the title says it all. I am really starting to feel the weight of these babies. At 15 weeks. Crikey! Only another 15 + weeks to go. Uh-oh. I have taken things down another notch, I feel fairly good in the mornings, so that's when I do most of the things I have to do, then when Amali has a sleep I'm either sleeping or lying flat on my back reading a book. Then I get up and go and pick Jordan up from school and as soon as I get home I have to lie back down on the recliner again. The kids are getting used to this and are really, really good. Daniel has been working til 5:30-6 in the evenings so he's not much help in the afternoons. Then when he gets home he finds energy from somewhere and plays with the kids for a bit while I make dinner (or heat up left overs) and we do baths and bed and collapse on the couch. I've just watched them drive off to take Jordan to his Saturday morning soccer game. Aaaahhhh peace and quiet. Soon I'll be off to yoga, which I class as 'me' time. Very important.

I have finally heard from the hospital, and I'm very happy to say that I'm pretty pleased with their service so far. I already have 3 appointments booked. The midwife made sure 2 were on the same day and even asked me what days were better. How nice. So I have 2 on the 30th April and then my huge 2.5 hour morphology scan on the 23rd of May.

My mind is filled with kitchen ideas at the moment. It's hard not to dream about winning this competition! It is so close I could almost touch it. I'm also thinking of ideas of how to get more votes. I am part of 2 international Facebook groups for triplets, 2 Facebook mums groups, 2 Facebook horse groups, my Facebook friends, and then I have over 100 emails so far from people who have agreed to forward the link on to their email contacts and work places. Then I have the entire Sunshine Coast Pony Club Zone that I can access........and I'll be sitting out the front of Woolworths and Coles here in Coolum, handing out the link and explaining the competition to people. Obsessed. I know. But it's not every day you have the chance of 1 in 5 to win a $25,000 kitchen competition is it? I'll let you all know when I have access to the link.

I'll finish up with my 15 week belly shots.

Yep, the stretchies are making a return.........!
