Hi ladies! For a while, I hung out in here (when I was preggers) but then life w/ triplets became hectic & I could only really handle 1 board, my PR (co-hosting it). Seems like I finally have time to jump around & want to start hanging out back here where there are other mommies like me.

For those that don't know me, my name is Astrid. My triplets were born on March 31, 2008 at 33w 6d, planned c-section. No real complications & the kids were only in the NICU for a very short amount of time as feeders/growers. We never dealt w/ As or Bs & have had only 1 major bump in the road w/ Ian. He is recovering & receiving therapy. Looking at my kids, you would never guess they came 6 wks early.

I take care of them by myself (much easier that way). I pumped for 13 mths & continue to nurse Ian as he is a big booby baby. I'm not sure when he will stop but I would like to reach 18 mths. On the side, I sell tutus/bows/diaper cakes, etc. I have also recently started jogging again & am looking in to running a 5k in Nov & a 10k in Jan/Feb. I hope to return to martial arts (Vovinam) when I stop nursing.

Oh, last bit of info. I am 34, hubby is 41. We had the triplets via IVF, 1st attempt. I use to teach but love being a SAHM.

Feel free to ask any questions! Can't wait to reacquaint myself w/ you girl!

Thanks for the wonderful welcome back! I *see* many of you that were on the ttc boards w/ me, some from TTC w/ MA. YAY! I'm so glad for you all. What a friggin' roller coaster this has been. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Hi Astrid! I have to confess that I am a stalker on your blog! Your kids are beautiful and amazing! When I m/c in 2006 trying to conceive our first, you were so sweet to me and sent me something in the mail. It meant so much. Since then, we have gone on to have a little girl named Emily who will is almost 29 months AND I am currently 31 weeks along with BGG triplets!!! You are amazing and I can't tell you how many times I have gone in to your blog archives to read how you survived pregnancy and triplets!!! I hardly ever post on here but do lurk every once in a while.
My blog is : Minivan Required
