15 Week Check Up and Gender Reveal

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. :)

  23. Carrie, that is awesome! Three boys - wow!! What fun your family is going to have with a big sister and THREE baby boys!
    I am glad you voiced your concerns to the doc and were given some reassurance. Better to feel silly sharing irrational fears than to go home still worrying about them!
    Your babies' photos are just gorgeous - congrats again!

  27. What beautiful news of your 3 cute little baby boys. If I have 3 girls, maybe we can trade one? :P

    Seriously, your babies are totally adorable. I love you for posting u/s pics, because our next peri appt. isn't until next week and I was wondering how mine would look in terms of size. (More than 3 wks between appts - what was I thinking??!)

    Did you get CRL measurements? Would love to know how big your boys are at 15 wks (which is where I'll be next week).

    Yes, I'm still am soooo very tired, it's not even funny. I huff and puff up the stairs, have to sit down after taking a shower, and can't stand very long anymore (like drying my hair/cooking/dishes/whatever just wears me out.) Dh has been doing almost everything for the past 3 and a half months. I don't know how you do it with a preschooler. I'm very impressed!

    Oh, another TMI tidbit. Brushing my teeth makes me barf. And suddenly, heartburn has reared its ugly head. As if being nauseous isn't enough.

    Despite the nausea, I've gained 10 lbs. I know it's not nearly enough, but it feels like a huge accomplishment given that every smell and food cooking make me feel sick.

    Still so happy to be pg and expecting triplets, though. Just fun to have a cool triplet mommy to commisserate with about the not-so-fun parts.
