Do you have names picked out for your 3 little ones? We have two names for the boy - either Zachary Michael or Brandon Michael. You can tell me opinions - would you use Zachary knowing his nephew who will be one soon is named Jack? Zack and Jack?? For girls, we have some ideas but are really stumped. Maybe Taylor Ryan, but that's the best we've got. The girl names are hard for us.

How are you feeling carrying triplets?
I'm feeling huge! lol I really would post a pic if I could ever figure out how. I have flickr and it seems I need photobucket instead. The kicking is kinda weird because it can came from any of three places, but more I worry when one place is calmer than the others. Although there does seem to be early am kickboxing lessons in my belly. That's pretty cool.
On a more serious note, I also feel a lot of pressure "down there" which is uncomfortable. Even rolling over at night can be painful. That's a down side for sure because it makes just walking hard sometimes.

What is your favorite food?

This has sounded weird to everyone, but I don't really have a favorite food during the pregnancy. It's more that once I see something I may not want to eat it at all. Pre-pregnancy my fav was potatoes. I can eat potatoes in literally any form. lol

We have tried for many years and these are a result of our first round of IVF where they told us we had a 1-2% chance that all would implant since the embryos really weren't the best. I've since found out my moms fam has twins, but it must be pretty far back. I am excited though because neither my brother or sister is having children, so I know my family will always have tons and tons of love for my lo's.

How are your dreams at night? Pregnant with 1 mine are weird so i'm curious about 3.Well, I'm not dreaming that much. I think I roll over so much (it seems like every 5 minutes) that I don't think I get good deep sleep. I'm also prone to be wide awake after waking up to use the bathroom, then not getting back to sleep until 6-7 am. I can say I had a dream where the dr told me there were two and I was arguing that there were three and woke up to the boy kicking away - I like to think he was reminding me that he WAS there. Smile

What is your birth plan?We don't really have one. Eeek. Our goals at this moment are to go as long as possible staying out of the hospital for bedrest. Everyone's goal is also to get as far into July as possible. (31 weeks is the last wknd in June) After taking a multiples class we just realized we need a plan for if some go to NICU and other go to the nursery. We did ask the dr about c-sect and she just said we'll go as along as possible carrying them and wait to see what happens.

How did you and DH meet?Ha! I introduced myself to him on three different occasions and each one he replied with "yeah, I'm the one who helped Jay move you out of your appt. (Jay and my roommate were dating at the time). LOL I was pretty determined to meet him I guess! Our first meeting I was literally standing in the shower scrubbing it as he walked by the hall to move the bedroom furniture, but he never came back to the apt after moving the furn to the condo... I thought he was older with kids because he was taller with glasses. Haha. I then re-intro myself after a No Doubt concert and AGAIN going out with friends one night. My roomie and I had given blood that day and went bar hopping that night (can you say 20-something behavior?!). He pretty much took care of me that night and I was in LOVE. It was sealed when I called him and his roomie to come over/hang out one night and he was the only one that came over. Awww.

What was your wedding like?I would love to do it all over again, this time on a beach. We got married in the church he grew up in with very simple decorations, just two huge vases of white roses up on the altar. Our reception was at a local ski resort and was all diy. Our friends and family still talk about how great the party was 6 yrs later! Our anniv. is the babies actual due date (8-20) and I'm trying to bring our wedding colors into their nursery b/c they are gender neutral indigo blue and a cream/butter yellow with touches of sage.

honeymoon?Due to the time of year and limited time (I only had one week before needing to start my MAT program) we went to Sedona and it was GORGEOUS! We took a day trip to the Grand Canyon. We stayed in a fab resort in Sedona and just loved the scenery, weather, and our new life. I can't wait to go back some day.

Best adventure?

Hmmm, maybe ziplining at Whistler? Getting kayaks when I don't know how to swim? (but I do love it!) or maybe "swimming" with dolphins in Mexico when we got engaged, except I was scared out of my mind - note the unable to swim. lol

I love to cook. Mostly Mexican or Italian, but will try anything. It drives my hubs crazy that I interpret recipes my own way. I'll have to find my fav recipe from a taste of home cookbook for cream cheese corn. Yum! (now I really will have to find or I'll obsess about it!)

I'm an avid reader, have been all my life. I'm reading "Goodnight, Beautiful" right now. Reading lots of lighter stuff while on bed rest. Have finished Dr. Luke's Expecting Twins, Triplets, Quads and have BabyWise to read too. Should probably do that this month.
