Can I wave a white flag?

Whew, I feel so done. Just typing this will make me cry I'm sure, b/c my hormones are out of control. I have NO room left and that makes me feel kinda crappy all the time. It feels like I can't breathe. My baby A is sooo low her sac actually kinda hurts b/c my belly is hanging low and when I try to lift it, it's hard as a rock. That's what I'm assuming is her sac. It is so hard to mentally stay in this game. I'm trying not to be negative, but the feeling overwhelmed, overcrowded, and over-large is just making me cry today. I really want to wave the white flag, but even if I did I know everyone would ignore me.

Props to everyone who kept hanging in there with a great mental attitude. I'm really really trying. One day at a time, today is just a tough day.

You are doing awesome! I am in awe of how well you are doing with this all. It was hard in the end, and I was not carrying triplets. Sorry that you are getting so uncomfortable. Hugs!

Oh, I am so sorry you are feeling so badly. You have been doing great!!!! You should be so proud of yourself for what you have accomplished. I feel so done and I only have two. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for you.

You have had such a great outlook and been so positive. You are an inspiration to me because no matter how bad I think I have got it, here you are going right along with three - not to mention you are not even living at your own house!

Tons of hugs....

You are truly amazing. You are allowed to feel done, and emotional, and however else you feel. By 32 weeks with my boys I was ready to sell them in exchange for a tropical vacation and some good alcoholic beverages.

But now I wouldn't trade them for anything.

You CAN do this. You ARE doing it and it's almost over. I promise.

This is an option???? LOL Seriously, I'm already thinking of a vacation to see family after the first of the year, and we ARE going to a beach sometime next year - no ifs, ands, or buts allowed. I know we will have fam willing to join us to help.

Thank you everyone for helping me keep my head in the game. The support you all provide is priceless and I hope I can pay it forward!

You are doing amazing! I'm sure I read in the book that 32 weeks is term for triplets? Anything over this is a definite plus! Make it into July and you are gold. :giveflower: Remember that all you are going through now is so that your babies are healthy and strong when they come out. :vibes: Keep going momma! We're here for support! :vibes:

You're doing amazing. I'm completely in awe of you. I complain constantly and I'm only having two! keep them baking, the longer they are in your belly, the less time they will be in the NICU.
