Today, I had an appointment with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (Dr. Scott).  The babies all look great! --I am exactly 11 weeks today. We had an ultrasound that lasted about 30 minutes and got some pretty good pictures.  It is really hard to explain just how amazing it was to see them all wiggle around on the screen, Baby B even danced a little jig for us.  Both the ultrasonographer and the physician said that I would have an ultrasound at almost every appointment because this is the only way to monitor each of thier heart rates. 

My physician is ultra conservative, thus she told me that vacationing at 21 weeks was "not a good idea."  Noah and I were kind of bummed about this, but we ultimately want to do what is best for the babies.  Now, instead of doing one big vacation, we will probably do a few weekend trips in the next two months. (Trip suggestions are welcome!)  Dr. Scott is hoping that I can make it to 34 weeks, but premature delivery is one of the most common problems in a mutiple gestation pregnancy.  In a few months, I will be seeing her more often in order to monitor this possible complication.
Jaxon was not feeling well when Aunt Christi picked him up today.  We hope that he is feeling better in the morning.  That little guy always has something funny to say, and it just isn't the same when he is under the weather.

And what you'll all been waiting for...sorry about the photo quality, I will scan them next time.

Baby C

All Three...

As they get larger, it is going to be very hard to get all three in the same picture.  Each baby has plenty of room, they just look squished because of the way the ultrasonographer had to angle the doppler.

My next appointment is in 3 weeks. I will let you all know if anything happens between now and then.  However, I am hoping that this will be an uneventful pregnancy!

Goodnight all!
