Here are my angels. Mairin is 3 and ready to turn 4 in January. The Boys are Eamon and Liam and they are 6. Having twin boys has been nothing but a joy for me and my husband. They are the best of friends and play very well together. They can be very competitive but also they seem to protect each other in times of conflict. Mairin is going to have even more to adjust to. She adores her big brothers and with 3 more boys on the way I will need to keep her dressed in pink as much as possible. She is strong willed and will probably be a very strong big sister and little sister in the future.
Ok here I am. I am not an advocate of self portraits during pregnancy but with triplets, everyone seems to want to know how I look. I am 28 weeks along and have added 25 wonderful pounds of baby. We found out earlier on that we are having 3 boys and are currently trying to figure out some Irish names.
This pregnancy has been relatively uneventful. There have been no problems as of yet. I am on my own self imposed bedrest. I really dont have any energy and what energy I have I put it towards my kids. I am ready for the end but also trying to keep them in for as long as possible.
As of 1 week ago my ultrasound is estimating each baby to weigh 2lbs. They keep encouraging me to rest and eat. Ok well I can handle doing that.

I am currently starting my 28th week of pregnancy with a due date of January 23, 2009. The doctors have no intention of my going past 36 weeks so we are planning and praying for December babies.
I have been so lucky to not have had any issues up to this point. I am at the doctors every other week and in for ultrasounds every 3 weeks.
How did this happen???? Seems to be the first question everyone wants to know. I took clomid for all of my children and it seems as though this time it worked really well. the doctors found 2 babies at 6 weeks and then found a 3rd baby at 9 weeks. This will definitely be a challenge but my husband and I are up for it.
