The Specialist

Well, yesterday we went to see the maternal fetal medicine doctor. We got to see the babies again, a lot more clearly than before. They are still growing on schedule and looking good.

The doctor came in and after the U/S he took some time to talk with us. He said that we have lots of things to watch out for: anemia, gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, bedrest, and constipation to name a few. Even before he got to that part, he gave us the "reduction" speech, but of course we won't even consider "reducing" one or two of the babies.

So, we have a lot of "fun" coming our way, but we are ready to deal with it. We go back in a few weeks and have a NT scan to check the babies for Down's Syndrome and if we are really lucky, we might be able to find out the gender of a couple of them, maybe... :P

So glad things are going well! How have you been feeling lately? I sure hope you can find out some of the sexes, if not all, how exciting!
