We had our 9 week appointment today with a Maternal Fetal Specialist up at IMC. We got to see all three little stinkers today and hear their cute little heartbeats. I can't even begin to explain how amazing that sound is to me. To go through 6 in vitro cycles and never hear a single heartbeat - and on the 7th and final round - we hear three separate heartbeats - it's truly unbelievable. The little gummi bears are all growing well and everything looks good so far.
Our appointment today was good and bad. SO good to see our babies growing well with strong heartbeats, but bad to learn all the risks - to the babies and to Jamie. Having identical twins is a high risk pregnancy in and of itself. There are a lot of different complications that can come with identicals - but then you throw another baby in there and it complicates things even more. Our Dr. was very straight forward with us and let us know what may come up in the future. Everything has a percentage - we just hope to be on the healthy side of things!!
Oh, I made my first purchase today:
I've heard it's a great book with a lot of good ideas - but you can take what you like and adjust it to your own babies and life style. We'll see. :)
