So it has taken me ages to find the time to write this! Even as I do begin to type, I have Ailah in my arms hiccuping like mad. But don't get me started on hiccups! That's a whole other post! Honestly though, things have been great. I've been going out with them (and the older 2) and it's pretty easy. They sleep so well (except for today) and it just takes longer to get them all in/our of the car.
My first outing by myself with the older kids in tow.
Chilling at the park
They are all feeding roughly every 3-4 hours still and pretty much go straight to sleep afterwards. I've just noticed them having more awake time in the last few days, it's nice to see little eyes open wide, beginning to explore the world. Albeit a fuzzy world! We have a great night time routine. They wake from their last nap at about 8:30, I bath the first two (separately), dress them, wrap them then it is boob time and bed. Then repeated for the third bubba. Usually they are all out by 10pm and I jump straight into bed. They then wake about 1-2am and then 5-6am. It takes about an hour to feed all three and they usually go straight back to sleep without any fuss.
But jokes aside, sometimes I look at them and realise that I have 3 babies!! It is such a surreal feeling, I suppose only one that other triplet mummies can understand. Things have been so good, I'm literally waiting for it to get harder. I know it will. I'm not that naive, and if today was anything to go by.......!!
As for me, due to it being school holidays I get to have a sleep in every morning so haven't needed too many naps during the day time, but that will all change next week. I'm feeling pretty fantastic, my tummy is going down nicely, I only have back pain if I'm not wearing my support band, and even then it's not too painful. A lot of people have asked about 'down there' - well, I'm pretty good. My pelvic floor has held out pretty good and I feel very 'normal' down there. My nipples are taking the strain very well and only get sore after Ailah has fed really bad and I haven't corrected her. Seeing that this is a 'warts and all' blog, I will keep putting belly shots up from time to time.
The one on the left was taken on Day 4 while still in hospital, the black and white ones were taken at 2 weeks post partum.

I only have the small size for now. I think they are very tastefully edited! Thank you once again Emily. (Thats meconium - baby poo - coming out of Dylan's bum!)
