My three crabs.....

ok, maybe not the most appropriate title for this blog, but at least i'm making an attempt at humor now.....

We saw the RE for the last time today. It's kind of bittersweet. I love all the amazing ladies at Midwest Fertility and I will miss the security that I have with them. But now it's onto the high risk ob/gyn.

I had another ultrasound today to see my little three. And yes, at this point they look like crabs. Dr. Reuter said that everything looks great. All babies (aka babies A, B & C) have strong heart beats and measure approx. 1/2 inch each. She said everything looks normal and at this point everyone appears to be right on schedule.

So, my next step is seeing a maternal fetal medicine and genetics specialist for another ultrasound on the 12th and then I meet with the high risk ob and his team on the 15th.

I hope that each and everyone of you have a great Thanksgiving!! We have a ton to be thankful for this year!!!

My new words to live by...


New Living Translation (NLT)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

The Message (MSG)
10-11This is God's Word on the subject: "As soon as Babylon's seventy years are up and not a day before, I'll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

HOLY CRAP!!! (it's the only appropriate title for this blog!!!)

OK, so today was/is the big day!!! We went this morning at 11:15 for our first ultrasound. I immediately saw two sacs on the screen and what kind of looked like a third.

The doctor checked the first one(aka baby A).....good strong heart beat.

She moved onto the second(aka baby B).....another good strong heart beat.

Then she looked at the little small sac that she originally thought was nothing....and yep, another good strong heart beat(aka baby C). The third one is smaller than the other two, but has the strongest and highest heart rate.

I'm not sure what else to say at this point. I'm having trouble formulating complete sentences let alone composing a blog. Terry and I are both still in shock. Give me a couple of days to let it sink in and I will post more.

T-minus two hours and Counting.....

Ok, so I just wanted to do a small "pre-post" this morning. I have to give my boss, Andy, major kudos for being super cool.

I've left out a lot of the small details in my postings. During the whole IUI process, I went to the doctor almost everyday. I either had blood work, and ultrasound or both everyday or every other day. Most of the time I was able to schedule my appointments early enough to make it to work on time. But there were several times that I was 15-30 minutes late because the office was running behind.

So, I'm sure that everyone knows that my ultrasound is at 11:15 EST today. I'm basically just taking a long lunch and Terry is meeting me at the office. Andy told me to take my time and go out and have lunch with Terry afterwards. I'm so lucky to have a boss who is so flexible. Making the switch between agents almost 4 years ago was very difficult for me, but I've never regretted it for one moment!!!

Just a thought....

Revelations 3:8

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly! 'The power of one sentence! God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor. God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close. If you need God to open, some doors for you...remember what your knees are for. Have a blessed day and remember to be a blessing...

I think it's gonna stick!!!

Ok, so I had my second BETA test yesterday. Yes, my RE's office is open on Sundays. Blood work came back at 711!!! The nurse said that is a fabulous number.

My first ultrasound is schedule for 11-19. So, hopefully then I will be able to finally believe it. I'm still a little freaked out about the fact that we have the potential for multiples, but God won't dump more on me than I can handle, right??
