Mt. Everest has nothin' on me!!!

Alright so I have SLOWLY been coming to terms with the fact that my pregnant belly is no ordinary belly. Sometimes it even seems beyond human...and I still have time left in my pregnancy!! I started out not showing much, then eventually I carried a bump, which gradually turned into a hill, that now has become a mountain!!!! So I will from now on refer to my belly as Mt. Triplets, and update you with some stats.

As of yesterday three babies still occupy the space, and they have grown and grown!! Their combined total weight is 10 pounds, 2 ounces...yep you heard right, over TEN pounds!!! My doctor wants me to shoot for mid January or later for a due date, and I nearly laughed in his face! By then the babies should weigh 4-6 pounds EACH, which means I'd be carrying around 12-18 pounds of baby!!! Don't get me wrong, all I want is for my babies to be healthy and strong, it's just a lot to swallow when I think about being pregnant for another 4-6 weeks. I told my husband I'll do what I can but don't expect me to have a cheery disposition come mid January!! :) All I can say is that the Lord has truly been by my side through all of this, and I just pray to be able to finish it through.

So without further ado, here's the latest mountain shot...do not be alarmed or adjust your computer, you are seeing the actual thing!! :)
