Wow! Tomorrow is the 9 week mark! All three babies are measuring great and have strong hearbeats! They are doing great. We were able to make out arms & legs on each of them. We can't count fingers & toes yet, but you can already see the bones that will make them. They were dancing and waving today too! Reality........................we are having three babies!
We still haven't told Collin yet, but will in the next couple of weeks.

By Week 7 the babies were the size of a raspberry and we couldn't get them all on the screen together.
They are titled Baby A, B & C. Baby B & C are in the same sac but they have a membrane separating them (very positive so they don't get tangled up with each other!) Because the egg split they are identical twins. Baby A is the lone ranger by himself.

Dear Friends & Family,
As most of you know, Chris & I did one more IVF cycle. This was our 5th and last cycle. We included PGD testing (so we knew chromosonally that the babies were healthy going in) and add heparin 2 shots a day to our protocol.
We have just completed 8 weeks of pregnancy and started our 9th week of our newest chapter in our lives. We have 3 perfect babies with arms & legs dancing and waving. We have decided to start a blog so all of you can check in and stay posted on the next few months. We have so much to be thankful for but will need all of your love and support. These babies are going to need all the prayers we can get in order to get them here safely and healthy! Our due date should be January 4th but we will pray to make it to 33 weeks which will be November 15th!
We go back to Dr. Brabac on 6/7 for our final appointment with her before we move in to Dr. Barnhart and a Perinatologist.
