15 Weeks Today!

Well today we are 15 weeks pregnant. It's funny how quickly time has started to fly since we found out. We are almost half way through already.
The Belly is large and in charge... We have been watching my belly grow larger and larger, but for some reason as I was looking at it in the mirror yesterday, it seemed to have exploded. It's like it grew tons just overnight. I think I am almost the size I was when I had Miche. Everyone told me to expect and I wasn't really worried about it, until some practicality issues started to arise. Such as, rolling out of the bed, bending over to pick things up, and various little things like that. If I am having trouble with some of those things now... what will it be like in 2 months when it is even larger. Thank god I have Michael, who takes such good care of me, and the kids have been a great help so far. I hope the big belly means the babies are growing big. With triplets they say the average birth weight is 3 1/2 to 4 lbs. I am really hoping for 5 lbs each. The larger the baby the better off they will be.
Eating is the key... For the most part I am eating soups, deli sandwhiches, salads, and a lot of fruit. I tried eating those Hebrew hotdogs since my doc said I could only eat Kosher hotdogs, and I don't really care for them. They taste like a wierd sausage. I can't wait to have real chilli dogs Anyway, they have pushed my stomache up so far I am finally getting on the schedual Michael has been pushing for... eating every 2 hours, because I can only eat little bits at a time and the kids want more then that!
Well it is off to feed the whole brood this time (dinner time).

Hi. Did the doctor give you a list of foods that are bad to eat while pregnant? Deli meat was on every list I got, along with hot dogs. This is because of the risk of lysteria which is very bad for a pregnant woman to get. When I was pregnant with my triplets all I wanted was a sandwich and couldn't have one. It was one of the first things I ate after delivery.

The biggest thing they harped on was it had to be Kosher meats. So kosher deli meats, kosher hot dogs, etc. It is more expensive to buy Kosher but the deli sandwiches are worth it since that is where I get a lot of my protein from at the moment.
