The most beautiful sound...

The last few weeks have been like an emotional roller coaster for us. At my first appointment with maternal-fetal, we received some not so good news about two of the triplets. I can honestly say the next two weeks were the most difficult weeks of my life. I would like to thank everyone who prayed for us and the babies...from the bottom of our hearts. The Lord heard and answered in a BIG way! At our next appointment, we learned that the doctor was mistaken and although the pregnancy is still considered extremely high-risk, the condition of the babies was not near as bad. So once again we were reminded of the power of prayer and delighted by His everlasting grace!

I had my first appointment with my regular OB today. When I made the appointment last week, I was sure to ask what to expect at this appointment. The nurse just said it would be paperwork, bloodwork, and meeting with the doctor to discuss a gameplan...no ultrasound. Well, Nick is really short-handed this week at work and decided he could miss this appointment. Needless to say, they did do another ultrasound and we (me & my mom) got to hear the heartbeats for the first time. Nick was sick! Had he known, he never would have missed it.

Each time I see the babies, it becomes a little more real. But hearing that sound...those steady little beats, I felt a connection that I haven't felt yet. It is absolutely the most beautiful sound!
I don't have the pictures scanned yet, but as soon as I do I will post them. In the meantime, here are the results.
Baby A (singleton) - measured 11 wks 3 dys, 178bpm
Baby B - measured 11 wks 1dy, 167bpm
Baby C - measured 11 wks 1dy, 171bpm
Baby D - measured 11 wks 4dys, 167bpm

As of today, I am 11 weeks and 1 day and as you can see, the babies are right on track. Also, the nurse said that the heartbeats should fall between 120-180 and they do! We are so thrilled. Thank you Lord!

Hey Sweet Lady,

Praise God for such great news!!!
I've been praying for you, Girl!

I wanted to tell you that I had a dream last week about you. I dreamed that one of my Pastors prayed over you, while you were pregnant, in front of the congregation. I don't remember everything he prayed but I do remember him saying that God had a great things in store for you and your babies. I remember feeling so excited and there was such a great presence of peace.
I'm afraid I was so excited about the words he was saying that I only remember this part. I remember him saying God was going to use your family for His glory and He had great plans for you and your precious little ones.
I'm praying for you and thanks for the update!
