Just a quick drop by while Harper is napping to say thank you thank you thank you (notice that is written 3 times!) for praying for us today!!! I was a little anxious as we were walking to the office from the parking lot, but once we sat down I had complete peace.
First of all… THERE IS A MEMBRANE!!! Our Jesus is so good that he let that be one of the first things that was found. It was beautiful and looked like a spider web! I’ve never liked spider webs so much
We then saw all three babies movin’ and shakin’! It was so amazing and beautiful because even at only 12 weeks old, we could see all of the bones in their fingers!!! They all looked to have super long legs like their daddy. The identical ones were quite cooperative, but the fraternal one was a little stubborn in getting all the measurements we needed! Ha! We’ll see how their personalities play out in the long run.
OH, we even got a gender prediction for the 3, but we will keep that secret until the genders are confirmed at our next appointment… I know, I know, I’m so mean… hold out 2-4 more weeks and we should know for sure!! Plus, I want to know YOUR predictions!!! Tell me what you think the Trips are
Thank you so much for praying! God is so good. We met our official doctor today, and just loved her so much! She answered all of our questions, and then walked us through what a triplet pregnancy looks like.
Since you all are my prayer warriors… please keep these dates on your calendars and in your prayers for us. These are some of our goals we are working towards…
*Feb. 12 – 2nd Trimester
*March 5 – 16 weeks – I have to start taking it easy. Only little things around the house. The couch and I will become BFF’s… well, maybe not *forever*, but at least for a good portion of this pregnancy 😉
*April 2nd-ish – Week 20 – Big Ultrasound… this is where they will measure how all the babies are doing. It will take a super long time. I’ll update more when we get closer.
*May 28 – Week 28 – Babies can be born at this point, but still need a few more weeks to grow and develop. (I may need cheerleaders at this point b/c I will be huge & uncomfortable)
*June 25- – Week 32 – They will not stop labor at this point. Babies can be born healthy at 32 weeks! Dr. K told me the office would have a party if I made it to this point! (of course she was kidding, but it would be such a blessing if I kept the babies in until June 25!)
*July 9 – Week 34 – This is my goal to make it to. The babies would be very well off!!!
Once again, thank you thank you thank you for your prayers! These babies belong to God, and we know that! We continually have to turn them over to Him, though. He does have a plan for their lives… I pray that I am open enough not to stand in the way of it.
We love yall! Thank you so much!
PS… Don’t forget to leave me your guesses on the babies genders!
