8 weeks...quick update

We have been going weekly for ultrasounds and everything has been moving right along.  The babies continue to grow and it still amazes me when I gaze at that screen.  We met with our infertility doctor this past week for the first time since getting pregnant.  She said that we are only the 2nd couple in all her years of practice to get pregnant with triplets on the particular combination of treatment we were doing!  She also said that in about 2 weeks she will release me to my regular OB/GYN and/or the high-risk specialist.  She is going to call my OB next week to see if she wants to handle my pregnancy along with the high-risk doctor or turn it over to the high-risk specialist completely.  I am a little anxious to see what happens. 

As for me, I have been nauseous 24/7 and I have tried not to complain....I just keep reminding myself that it could be worse, and it WILL get better.  Norman and I have been talking about all the things we need to do to be ready.  It's a long, overwhelming list.  Since we know that I will more than likely be on bed rest at some point...probably around 28 weeks if not sooner....we are trying to get a head start.  The most important thing is to get a room cleaned out for the babies.  I keep wondering how in the world TWO people can have so much "stuff"!?!?  I see a BIG yard sale in our near future.  Anyway, I don't have any groundbreaking news...just felt like I needed to post an update.  Now I am off to enjoy this beautiful day the Lord has made.


  1. I just can't tell you enough how excited I am for you and Norman. 3 little precious babies!!! Ah!!! It's incredible!

  2. This just makes me smile! =) thanks for updating!! Hope that the sickness does pass quickly =)
