35 Weeks!

Well, Emily has made it to 35 weeks!  She was at her OB on Thursday, the 20th and they measured her at 50 Weeks!  Now to put that into perspective, that is 10 weeks overdue for a normal baby, that is 2 and a half months!  That is about the equivalent of 1/3 of a pregnancy.  She is in pain!  She is SO over being pregnant!  Luckily, we have a day (finally) for the c-section.  The official day is this Thursday, the 27th of December, which break!!!  We need to be in the hospital at 5:30 a.m. for getting blood work, getting the anesthetic, trying to calm down, etc.  Needless to say we are excited and scared, and everything in between!

A pretty cool thing about these babies is that they will be the first triplets born at this particular hospital.  This is the only hospital in Rio Rancho, NM, which means they will be the first triplets in history to be born in the city of Rio Rancho, NM!  Kind of cool.  I think that we need to get the news outlets on this story!

I think that this might be the final post before the triplets come.  I may try and do one the night before they are born (for those of you who are not very savvy with a calendar, that would be this Wednesday).  I will put some pictures up now for you to enjoy:

  1. The Purdy families wish you all the best!
    Merry Christmas.

  2. How exciting! I feel so bad for Emily, the tolls pregnancy takes on your body with just one baby is bad enough, I can't imagine having 3! Good luck on the 27th!!!

  3. Oh good luck!!! I hope everything goes well and those babies come out healthy and screaming their lungs out :)
    I bet that hospital is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for the 27th- I bet the L&D nurses are drawing straws to see who gets to take care of Em and the triplets :)
