The first picture shows Patricia at just under 17 weeks.  This is the first time we have taken a picture of her belly.  

We till try and take a picture about one a week during her pregnancy to see how it progresses.  Below she is wearing her "Tripletcubator" shirt.  Now officially her "good luck shirt" since everything went well today at our doctor's appointment (on July 14th).




17 weeks - 38 inches

Patricia at just under 17 weeks.  Her belly measures 38 inches around.   Taken on July 5th 2008.

18 weeks - 39.0 inches

Here is Patricia at 18 Weeks, taken on July 14th 2008.  Her belly measures 39.5 inches now.  It isn't that apparent in the picture, maybe since the shirt is dark, but she did indeed grow bigger in one week.  She has gained 4 pounds since our last doctor's appointment on June 30th 2008.




19 weeks - 39 inches

She gained about 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks but the measurement is the same. Taken on July 20th 2008.

Tricia again gained about 5 pounds in the past 2 weeks and about a half inch on her belly.  Yeah!  Taken on August 2nd 2008.

30 Weeks

This is the last picture that was taken before I delivered out little miracles. I have no idea of how big I was at this time. It all happened so fast after this point!
