Another day, another visit

Other than my growing belly, this last week has been uneventful for which we are grateful. We had our third visit with Maternal-Fetal Medicine today. Doctor visits have become something I actually look forward to. It is so much fun to see our babies and how much they have grown from week to week. Once again, the babies all measure on track...right around 12 weeks. The heartbeats were still very good and about the same as last week....Nick was there to hear them! Here are some pics from today's visit.


Baby A (singleton)


Baby B,C,&D (triplets)

After we finished the ultrasound, we met with the doctor. This was the first time we met with this doctor. He went over with us again all the risks involved with the pregnancy. I have to say...if we let it...this news could be very discouraging and frightening. Good news is that we have the Lord on our side. If we stay focused on Him and take one day at a time, we will be fine. One of the reasons, I decided to do this blog is to keep our prayer requests specific. Although we are always praying for a healthy pregnancy and babies, I'm sure there will be different issues and concerns that will arise with each visit. Again, we thank you for praying for us...we could not get through this without prayer. We also know that we are not the only ones struggling or with needs and would be blessed if you let us pray for you as well. Just shoot us an email and we will commit to praying for you. Here are our requests after this visit:

  • All babies stay on the same growth curve and that there will be no fluid abnormalities
  • Babies will develop healthy
  • Bedrest - probably in 6-8 weeks...lots to do before then!

Our next appointment is Monday 10/20. We will keep you posted!

I remember all of those M-Fet. appts. and we only had twins, but it is so much fun to see all of your babies-it also helps it be real when you can see all of their little hearts beating. You have FOUR babies inside you!! That is so amazing.
Now-when are we going to find out what these babies are- you know it will take me a while to smock four matching outifts?!?

Hi- I am a mother of two little ones in central Texas. Reading "quad blogs" is my guilty pleasure while my children nap :) I hope that's not creepy to you! Just wanted to let you know that even though I don't know you, I am praying for healthy, happy babies for you- what an incredible gift by our gracious Lord!!
