Whew...so far, so good!

We made it through our appt this morning with good news. All three babies look good and are still growing quickly. There was also no indication from the screening that there is anything wrong at this point. They were able to take a couple of measurements and things are going just fine.
Since we've finished up with the 1st trimester, there are new pills/supplements to be added to my VERY full pill schedule. I'm going to need a little travel alarm to remind me to keep up with everything. The BEST news is that we have finally finished the nightly progesterone injections that Troy has administered for just at 12 weeks. The babies now have their own placentas that will produce progesterone and the extra shots are no longer necessary. WOO HOO!
The next appt is not for THREE weeks (Sept 20) and they might even be able to determine the sex of the babies at that time. Admittedly, we were glad that the nurse practitioner is on vacation during the originally planned 4 wk visit and so she asked that they schedule it for 3 wks from today. As usual, the more ultrasounds, the better (in our opinion), so 3 wks it is.
For now, the focus will be on my weight gain. It's time to eat more and start putting on the pounds so that the babies will get big and strong. I'm still hopeful that my appetite will improve in the next week or two and that I'll have fewer food aversions. I have a feeling that I'm going to wake up one morning and just eat for the next 4 months straight.
Thanks for your prayers as they must be working.

Yay! Three healthy babies! I'm glad to hear the report from today. I ate enough for you tonight, sympathy weight, that's what I can do for you. :)

Glad to hear things are going well. I'm still so excited for you. I emailed the S & W clan, heard from Crystal and Robin..they say hello. We are all praying for you. Let me know if you need anything.

The key to weight gain is a diet full of peanut butter...trust me, this booty of mine is living proof that more peanut butter equals more pounds...and plus, let's face it...peanut butter is just so good! :)

On another note, congratulations on moving beyond the first trimester! Hopefully now you can begin to breathe a little easier...

Hooray again! I'm so happy for you and Troy!

Love,
