I'm 24 weeks now and my bed rest has officially started. Today was my last day of work. It was heartbreaking. I know I'm not "leaving" for good.....but this is all I've known for 12 years. I had a wonderful boss and became close to my office manager who I call my second mom. It was much more than a career or place to work. It was family. If you think about it, you spend a third of your life at work. That's a huge chunk of your life! I have been extremely blessed to have worked at Highlander Financial. For the most part, I was able to call the shots on what I did on a daily basis. I always had a boss that would support my decisions and Judy (Office Manager) who would help me see the big picture of any situation. I'm really going to miss it.
Now, I'm starting down a new journey of my life. I'm excited and a little apprehensive. But I have a lot of support from family and friends and know Bronson and I will do just fine as parents. This has been a long awaited experience. I'm glad it's happened the way it has with us. It allows us to appreciate the joys of being parents.
From this point forward, 80% of my day needs to be either on the couch or in bed. A little rough, but I know with a good attitude and a positive spirit, I'll make the best of it. For anyone that wants to know what to pray for us......pray that we make it to February 3, 2009. That is the day I would like to have the babies. I will be 38 weeks and to carry triplets that long would be a miracle. And since these are miracle babies.....it would only be appropriate.

I've just about completed my 22 weeks of pregnancy. Going into the 6th month beginning next week. I had an appointment with Dr. Rowe (high risk) on Thursday. He was extremely pleased with me and the babies. I'm doing well (as are the babies). All of the little ones are over 1 lb!!! That is a huge milestone for me. Their hearts are all in working order and they are developing beautifully. Bronson and I are truly blessed!! He did say I need to stop work as of October 31st. So, on Friday, I gave my two weeks notice. I would have to say that it was one of the hardest thing I ever had to do. I have worked for my boss well over 11 years (12 years with the company). It was an emotional experience. But I know God has a plan and will work everything together for good.
This past Saturday was my first baby shower. Wow!! What an overwhelming day!! Bronson and I received an outpouring of love from family and friends. I was really touched to see everyone come together to celebrate this special occasion with us. It means a lot to both of us. The gifts were unbelievable! Bronson even said if we were having only one child, we would be set!
For those of you who don't read blogs because they're too long, I will begin to write short entries from this point forward. So, with that "said", I'm closing down for the night. Thank you again for your continued prayers.
