16 weeks and 3 days... but who's counting!

My bump as of today :)

Our little girl (the boys weren't very cooperative for their pictures this week)

Today was our doctor's appointment with our high risk doctor, Dr. Mansano. He was pleased to see how well the babies are doing and how well I am doing too. When we go back in 2 weeks we have another big ultrasound that is called the 2nd trimester anatomy scan, where they look at everything in extreme detail again. We look forward to getting another positive report at that appointment.

I am feeling good. I'm starting to seem more like myself, albeit a larger version now. ;) My last day of work is on Friday and I can't wait. Now I can get stuff done before I get put on my unavoidable bed rest. My belly is growing by the day and I still love it! Scott and I are so excited for these babies and we can't wait to meet them!

And the sexes are...

Finally all 3 in one picture! The identicals are at the bottom.
Single Baby


13 week bump

Well today was the big day to find out if there was anything wrong with the babies and there was a chance we could find out the sexes. We are thrilled to announce all the babies look great. It is amazing what they can see with this ultrasound machine. They were able to measure the chambers of the heart, the kidneys, the spine, etc. The noses and back of the neck look great which are the two things they check as signs of down syndrome. Also their lips and mouth look great as do all of their arms, legs, fingers, and toes! As you can see we got amazing ultrasound pictures in 3D.
The high risk specialist, Dr. Mansano, was great as was the ultrasound technician. They were both very reassuring and I already love the doctor since he said I can email and call with any questions I have. Additionally he wants to see me every 2 weeks... I said I would be here every week if you wanted!
And they were 100% sure that we are having... Identical boys and a little Princess!!! We are so excited! It's a great combination. Now we just need to pick out 6 names!
