Here is my sister and I!
I am at 23 1/2 weeks, Laura is at 28 weeks....
Who's belly is bigger???

And here are the girls...

This is "baby a"

Here is "baby b"
It's hard to tell in the picture, but her hand was up to her mouth

and here is "baby c" and her sweet little hand

We have a hard time getting good shots of them since they are all so squished in there together.
Baby "a" is positioned across the bottom of my belly, and "b" and "c" are next to each other on top of her. According to the latest pictures they were head up with their heads so close it looked like they were touching!

I am feeling well still, but I seem to have turned a corner to where it is affecting me more. I have started having braxton-hicks contractions, which are not labor contractions, and are relatively harmless although uncomfortable. The doctor said it was normal since I am the size of a full term single now. I really can't be on my feet long now- the other day I tried to do some shopping at Walmart and near the end I was having constant b-h contractions, blurry vision, and my heart was pounding. So I am definitely at a point where I need to be off my feet as much as possible. Other than that, though, everything is going great and the babies are growing well!

Thank you for your prayers!

love the picture of you and laura side by side. it's cool how you are both expecting at the same time. it's like Mary and Elizabeth....more or less...sort of.

Anyway, tell Chris to quit being so lazy and actually help out a with the grocery shopping. haha, can't wait to meet them all and introduce you to Esther.
