    Hope everyone is well!

    How are the new babies doing?

    I have been nesting like crazy! My house needed decluttered so bad and I have finally made some progress and got all the Christmas chaos put away.

    I also made the twins coming home outfits!!

    About 4.5 weeks left at the most until they get here

    Ohhh RN those are so adorable! I’ve always really liked Macy as a girls name - Colson is also super cute!

    Will be exciting to see the new babies arriving soon!

    AFM, Thomas is doing well - he’s been an easy going guy. He passed his birth weight and is 6lb 11oz - still so tiny :cloud9: The house is total chaos with the 3 of them though, lol. Today I was helping my 2 year old wash his hands - I had to put Thomas on a blanket on the kitchen floor so he was crying, and when I turned around my 1 year old was dunking our remote control into an old cup of tea. I was like whaaaat is happening right now :rofl:

    Awww. Our boys names are so close RN! I love the going home outfits!

    Sander hes still so teeny. Im gonna miss having a small guy like that. Lol im pretty sure he's already 6lbs at least and im not even 36 weeks yet.

    I'll find out what they're thinking tomorrow at my appointment. I have my first nst and another ultrasound. I'm excited to see him again and hopefully get a better idea of when he'll be here.

    Who knows! I think I said already but they estimated him between 5 and 5.5lbs at 34 weeks! Obviously that wasn’t the case lol. Yay for seeing baby again tomorrow :)

    Sander- that is going to be me.. totally outnumbered and overwhelmed lol At least my other 2 are a little older. You are a superhero with 3 under 3!!

    Lisa- What is your boy name? I can't remember! Ultrasounds are always so exciting! One more left for me. The NST aren't as wonderful, but worth it to make sure baby is okay :)

    RN- Those are adorable! I can’t wait to see them in it!
    Lisa- Good luck tomorrow!
    Sander- He’s so cute! It’s totally bonkers with 3 kids. I’m trying to not get overwhelmed, but it’s crazy. Lol

    afm: I feel pretty good. My back hurts because of my epidural site. I can’t seem to be able rest in a comfortable position. Gave is doing ok. He’s nursing really well and chill during the day...night not so much. I’m exhausted. He gets so fussy and won’t settle for more than a half hour all night. He’ll sleep on my chest, but I can’t lay on my back for long like that. I’m praying it gets better as he adjusts. The girls just love him. My almost 5 year old has been such a big helper. We have our first outing with all 3 because Gabe has an appointment and I can’t drive. It’s going to be annoying because it’s basically going to be a 2 hour appointment and I’m the only one allowed in. I’m not sure what Michael and the girls are going to do. None of them are patient. Lol

    Gah Jules gorgeous pictures. I’ve coslept with all the boys for exactly that reason - they don’t settle well on their own but it is not comfy for moms! Hopefully he settles down a bit. Does your hubby have some time off work? Maybe he can take a couple hours shift in the night so you can sleep.

    RN this little dudes name is Colton.... however were still not 100% on a middle name. My other boys are Chance Michael and Collin Mitchell however for some reason Colton Matthew just doesn't feel right but its the only M middle name I like other than Mateo, but hubby hates Mateo... we may end up going with David as a middle name but then I wonder if its wrong naming one kid after dad and not the others. (I know im probably way overthinking it!)

    Seriously though sander and jules I don't know how you guys do it with 3 little ones. I already know im going to be overwhelmed and mine all have big gaps :haha:

    Sander, I feel the cosleeping lol if I didn't with my other boys I never would have gotten any sleep. However were trying a bassinet this time, who knows if it'll work though :shrug:

    Jules I had the worst back pain after my epidural last time, have you tried a heating pad? *hugs* I remember after I had Collin I slept on the recliner for a while with him on my chest because I was so sleep deprived and it was the only way he or I would get any sleep. I hope you can get some sleep in soon!

    Lisa I also think Colton Matthew sounds perfect!

    Thanks guys! Like I said I just feel like I'm overthinking it all.

    I've been going... annoyed and stressed and I really gotta say I'm wishing we still lived at our old place. I have no "safe" space... aka I have nowhere I can go to just be by myself when I get overwhelmed. I didnt think you could really get used to having too much space but I deffinately did.

    Thats exciting RN! I should find out on Monday a date for my induction. Ive been having the weirdest cramps down low.

    Oh, and after 3 kids its finally happened. I have my first stretch marks... I know its not a big deal .. at least the logical part of my brain does. However the emotional super pregnant part of me is so sad about it.

    Exciting to have a tentative date RN!! It’ll be here before you know it.

    Lisa sorry about the stretch marks :( I got them so bad with my oldest and every baby I just add more lol. My whole stomach is a giant stretch mark, they almost reach my boobs!! They do fade though - the ones I got with my oldest are pretty much white now and hard to see.

    Lack of space is not good - I find it’s overwhelming too, for me more so with the amount of stuff in our house! I hate clutter so when every cabinet is stuffed with things I tend to lose it and start chucking a bunch of stuff just to make room :haha: Hopefully as time goes on and you get more organized after the move you’ll feel more settled

    Sander thats exactly how I feel, I hate clutter, I hate things not being organized. It just gives me a feeling of stress.... and nesting with clutter has been even worse because im just throwing stuff away and reorganizing constantly.

    Yeah, I know they fade. I got really light ones on my breasts with #2 but they aren't really noticeable (especially now since they're more full because of pregnancy lol). I just hate that I'm getting down on myself because of it. I know its just these dang hormones messing with me.

    How are you and Thomas doing?

    I sooo know how you feel!! It will get better :hugs: As for the stretch marks, you’re probably right - being 9 months pregnant won’t help things! I always feel giant and gross at 9 months, and the appearance of stretch marks doesn’t help lol. You are so close to the end now! Then baby will be here and everything will calm down hormonally. I’m always amazed at how much better I feel after having the baby - like you’re tired and sore from giving birth and having a newborn, but it’s so hard being super pregnant and hormonal.

    We are doing good! Thomas is still a happy guy, not much to report. Trying to stay sane under lockdown haha

    Sander I feel the same way, its like some huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders whenever I give birth. Its weird how fast my mood changes lol especially just being able to get out of bed to pee without going through a whole fiasco.

    How bad is lockdown where you're at? Luckily as of right now its not too bad here (the cases are sky high so I'm staying home as much as possible anyways) but at least if I wanted to go out and take the kids on a walk we could. I really can't explain how much I miss just walking around target and enjoying myself instead of thinking "get in and get out".

    We’re locked down pretty severely here - like you can’t see anyone outside of your household at all. All non-essential stuff is closed but some things like the library have pickup service. We can go for walks though so that’s good! Although I’ve heard because the cases are still spiking they’re going to make it more restrictive - I don’t know what that would look like. It sucks having the new baby and no one can see him. My great grandmother also died on Tuesday and we can’t have an in person funeral, they’re doing it all online. She had Covid but she was also already in the hospital recovering from hip surgery - no one in our family seems to know exactly what she died from, like if it was post surgery complications or Covid. She was 91 though and she hasn’t been well for a long time.

    Anyways I’m just so ready for this all the be over - like everyone else I’m sure haha

    So exciting to see the little baby pics. Makes me get excited to meet my little one.
    2.5weeks till my due date but I'm really hoping this one is early, I'm getting way to emotional over the stupidest things. It's summer here in New Zealand at the moment, and the town I live in had it's hottest recorded day in 60years and that's when the records started so it could have been the hottest day ever. Our heat is super muggy to so it's not easy being pregnant in this heat.
    I'm doing everything I can to try and help prepare my body for labour, all the natural herbs, keeping active, clary sage oil. Anything else to suggest?
    My other 2 were 5days over, 8p50z and then induced at 14days over and 9p7oz so would really love a earlier and smaller baby this time

    Sander, im sorry to hear about your great grandmother but I actually understand your feelings. My great grandmother will be 93 on Valentines day and as much as it would hurt for her to pass I know she's been in pain for the last few years.

    Are you US or somewhere else? I cannot imagine things being that shut down.. though I kind of wish they would. Were averaging over 2k new cases a day in our city.

    Hey rolla! Nice to see you! Ive been going through the emotional Rollercoaster too. :haha: Its not necessarily to help put you into labor but I've heard curb walking can help to get baby to further engage. Ive also heard eating dried dates can help shorten labor but who knows! I cant imagine being pregnant in the summer. I was with my first and it was horrid. However my one complaint about having a winter baby for the first time is that its sooooo hard trying to put my socks on.
