Today's appointment was surprising. I didn't know they were going to scan the babies (I thought just my cervix) so when they lifted up my shirt I was so excited!
Everyone is still looking wonderful. No signs of TTTS, fluid levels even, all good heart rates and still ADORABLE. I was alone as this appointment was impromptu, so my husband didn't get to see their cuteness this time. I will be seen weekly from now on, which makes me feel so much better. I feel like a lot can change in the cervix or with the babies in a two week period, but weekly check ups make me feel much better.
As expected, the doctor told me to rest as much as possible, hire a housekeeper and prepare for bed rest in the next couple months. I shared with her some of my more irrational fears and she was very comforting, reminding me that almost all the time, a problem is seen coming and they can take steps to correct or slow it down. I said, "I am kind of a worrier" and she said, "Yeah, I can tell." I should bring her a copy of "Wemberly".
The best surprise was the sonographer was able to determine all of the babies' genders with certainty! Allow me to introduce:
Baby A, our SON!
Which means Baby B, must also be our SON!
And... last but not least, Baby C, our SON!
We are overjoyed to be having three boys! I will be dispersing all of my many totes full of darling girl clothes to my deserving friend with a baby girl.... and rapidly learning everything I can about Thomas the Train and Bob the Builder. :)
