Slideshow updated on page 5.
This is your week Nicole! I definitely see a noticeable pop there! Looks great:D
it seems as though saturdays have turned into work on the nursery days!! my parents made the long drive again yesterday and my dad helped tripper hang the shelves in the boys' room.
i don't have all the right do-dads up there yet, but was so excited i wanted you to see. sorry for the picture quality—it was dark and i didn't want to use a flash because then the monkey painting had big-time glare on it. anyway, you get the idea, right?
just for kicks, here's the photoshop mockup i did before we bought the shelves to see if we'd like it. we do! it's even better in person!! the chocolate and white shelves really do make all the pieces—white cribs, chocolate dresser—tie in together. yay!
now that the shelves are up, we are rethinking the wall of photos we had planned for over the little white bench (which you can see right here). we're afraid there will be too many bits and pieces and it will look too cluttered. instead, we're contemplating one large format photo of their stuffed animals. tripper thinks it will be fun to set them up in a scene and take a photo of that. he's trying now to figure out a way to make them all stand up. stay tuned ...
ps—all the belly shots are looking great!!
Holly, your nursery is looking great!!! I like the new idea of the large photo on the wall...and think it would be fun to set a scene!
I love it, Holly! It's so cute! I think the scene of stuffed animals will be super cute! Hint, I would do two, maybe identical or just a little bit different. That way, they will grow up seeing them and they can each have one as a keepsake when they grow up. My granpdpa painted a picture of a koala on the wall of my nursery and I love having a picture of that.
I love everything that you've done.
Good idea, Nic. Scott is going to make a book rack for them like the one from Pottery Barn, and I asked him to make two so when they have their own rooms they'll each have one.
17 week belly shot! Yikes!
Wow, the longer you go, the tinier your rib cage looks! lol Your belly is really popping!
Oh, I know! My two lowest ribs are spreading, and I have to stretch all the time...it feels so good when I do that.
you look so good, tracy!! speaking of ribs ... yesterday i was on the couch sort of propped up with pillows. all of a sudden, i'm up on my feet in big time pain. one of those little twinkies kicked so hard i swear he broke a rib!! i'm fine now, so i know it's not broken, but sheesh! up until then i'd sort of lost track as to where my ribs had gone!!
anyway, here's a 30w3d twinkie picture.
brace yourself. this one is kinda yucky—unless you're into veins and stretch marks
is it me or am i started to look like i have a torpedo under there?
Awesome pics, holly and tracy. You girls look beautiful!!!
Oh, Holly, you look awesome! Can you believe what you have going on in there? The veins will go away and the stretch marks will fade. You'll have rock hard abs again in a couple of months.
Holly..you look fantastic! I can't believe how much you've grown in the past 2 months but it looks great:) So amazing!
Holly - you look GREAT! Go babies, go! (but take it easy on Mommy...)
Here is an updated slideshow of my triplet belly pics.
And one with clothes on:
Nicole, you look great!!!!
I love your watching your belly grow Nic! You look great:D
Here's my most recent shot!! Getting bigger. I am measuring 25 weeks as of today (19 weeks).
Yeah Tracy! You look great Momma!
I thought I posted to you already, Tracy, but I don't see it. You look great! WHooo hooo!
Tracy~You look great! It's definitely getting bigger!
Here is my latest from this week. I'm starting to feel huge now and I know it's only going to get worse:eek:
Melissa! You look fantastic!
You look great Melissa!
Check out my updated pics...:eek:
I think you look great, Nicole...I know you said you'd gained 27ish pounds, but you don't look it. You are definitely getting bigger, but you must be carrying it very well!

I figured it out:
3 babies at 8oz each = 1.5 lbs
Amniotic fluid at 1.5 lbs each = 4.5 lbs
Placentas at 1.5 lbs each = 4.5 lbs
Blood volume = 4.5 lbs
Water retention = 5 lbs
The rest of the excess weight can be found spilling out of my too-tight-but-already-upsized bra!
Nicole..ITA! You look fantastic and I defintely can't see where those 27 lbs are...besides your belly:D
omg! Nicole I feel you on the bra issue! I wear a DD and haven't gotten any larger than that ever. I'm popping out my my DD I refuse to upsize, but I don't think I can avoid it much longer. I don't want rolls over my bra LOL! I just hope my boobs go back down after I'm done breastfeeding! I hate being big chested. The thing is I was so flat chested my whole life till I had children. Man, the good lord give you what you ask for huh.?
Wow, I didn't think I'd grown that much in a week, but check this out! It explains a lot of how I've been feeling!
that certainly would explain the twinges, tracy!! you look great! all of you do. i'm not so sure i should post any more belly shots. i don't want to scare anyone!! i've dropped a bit. stretch marks now go halfway up my belly and i'm much more torpedo-shaped than round now.
Oh man, I am sooo hoping you will. You can't scare me, you're gorgeous!
I agree! I can't be anymore scared than I already am!
Did you see the video that was on my blog? Now THAT was scary! But good...
Haven't changed a lot this week, but here it is:
Looking good, Nicole! It's hard to believe you've gained 29 pounds!
You look so great Nicole. I agree with Tracy, I don't see where that 29 lbs could be!
I just wanted to stop by and tell you guys how cute your bellys are. lol. I venture on the sept 06 board and I m dong having babies, tubes are tied, but looking at you guys makes me want more.
You guys are so sweet. It's really more like 31 or 32 pounds now. I can't keep from gaining it seems like almost a pound a day! UGH! I know it's not quite that much, but it feels like it!
Hopefully it means that the babies are growing and hav plenty of fluid, etc.
Here are updated belly pics. 20 weeks and 35 pounds. I think I'll be making the transition to covered pics from here on out. lol
Here is the latest!
Wow, you look great, Melissa! I can't believe you're over 26 weeks already!
You're telling me! It really does fly. I still can't believe you and Tracy are over 20 weeks:eek: I swear, it seems like just the other day we all got our BFP's:D
Here is my update belly slideshow with the 21 week picture added. At my appointment on Tuesday, I measured 31 weeks. :eek:
you look so wonderful Nicole.
