Welcome to the second trimester

12 week bump

So I had to wait a whole week and a half to get today's ultrasound, but I survived and we were excited to see our 3 dancing babies on the screen. We really enjoyed the new doctor and she was very reassuring. She said they all look good. She made both Scott and I get the H1N1 vaccine and she ordered a ton of blood work. They don't do the blood work in the office so we have to go to a lab later in the week. I'm not looking forward to that!
We are looking forward now to Monday when we meet with the perinatologist (high risk specialist) to get a very detailed ultrasound. They expect us to be there for 2 1/2 to 3 hours! The cool thing is part of the test they do in 3D so that will be pretty awesome to see. Expect really good pictures next week. The bump is getting big and it's tough to cover up so we're happy that this is the week we decided to start spreading the exciting news.

The belly's getting a little bigger

Today is week 11 and all three babies are doing great! The heartbeats are all in the 160's and they are all measuring perfectly. Dr. Kalan seemed very happy with everything. The babies were doing somersaults and dancing around. One of them was even kicking it's feet! We officially graduated to our new OB and the perinatologist. We will start going to the new OB in a week and a half and then we see the perinatologist on March 1st. It was a bittersweet goodbye, since we loved them, but we are very grateful that we get to graduate.

I'm feeling pretty good and loving my little belly! We are looking forward to sharing this exciting news with everyone after our next doctor appointment. :)

Single Baby... getting bigger!

Well we have officially made it to week 10 and we are going strong! I had a cold all week, but I was able to look forward to my 2 different doctor appointments this week. My first appointment was with my new OBGYN, Dr. Silberstein, who is out of Tarzana. Debi will be excited to hear that she is orthodox! She has delivered 3 sets of triplets before and they were all perfect. She was really nice and her office is right down the hall from my fertility doctors who we love. She gave me three names of perinatologists (sp?) who are the high risk doctors I will be seeing additionally throughout my pregnancy.

Today we went for another ultrasound and all the babies are measuring perfectly with strong heartbeats. Dr. Kalan says they look great! We were so excited watching them move around and wiggle today. It's really amazing to see. Next week we graduate from the fertility doctors and start with the OBGYN and the perinatologist.

I'm feeling pretty good, just no real appetite. Scott is hoping that changes soon so that we can start going out to dinner again! The "bump" is growing and I am loving every minute of it! We'll see if I'm saying that in 5 months when I'm huge!!!
