Blessings x 3!
Well as many have heard the Self family is growing from 2 to 5 in less than 7 months!!! We feel totally blessed and at the same time totally overwhelmed with the love, support, joy and all the changes headed our way. We see Dr. Romberg at Baylor Dallas again on Wednesday and will see pictures of the babies again, as well as talk more about "next steps" with the high risk specialist. At our appointment last Thursday, 10/9, the babies were strong and heartbeats racing. Baby A and B had heart rates of 153 and Baby C had a heart rate of 155. All 3 babies measured the same length and overall right now all looks good.
I am feeling pretty good. Other than fatigue and constant nausea, the good Lord has blessed me with a husband who runs to store several times a day and each time I start to get sick asks "Can I get you anything?" I wish I could tell him he could, but nothing helps the tummy.
I have been in touch with 4 families now who are parents of triplets, which is a HUGE blessing. Today I am also reading many posts on Triplet Connection http://www.tripletconnection.org/ and looking at ways we can organize the nursery. Oh, a several blogs from triplet moms, which is quite entertaining.
A new car model is also in order. I am in the process of earning the Chevy Malibu with Mary Kay, however the sedan will not hold 3 car seats! I am going to take the cash option, THANK YOU MARY KAY, and will use that toward our new family vehicle. I have 6 choices ready for Jack when he gets home today...and hoping we will make a decision in the next couples of weeks.
Here is the first sonogram picture from last week.
