March Doctor's Appointment Update

We went in for our monthly doctor's appointment yesterday. Everything seems to be going fine so far! There was another doctor who was following my normal doctor and he did the check up first. First, he was shocked to see that we are having triplets. Then he "attempted" to listen to the heartbeats. I'm not sure what he was really thinking, if he thought he heard all 3 or not, but he said "120, 150 and 120". Then my normal doctor came in and found only one heart beat at 159. I asked, what about the other two. He said that it is very difficult to find all three heart beats when not using ultrasound. He also made a point of letting us know that it is nothing to worry about.

We have another appointment on April 28. I will be 18.5 weeks then. Then the doctor said that we will schedule another ultrasound for 20 weeks. I'm so excited for that. Just to see all three little munchkins moving would be great! I don't think I have been able to feel them move yet. The kids at school tease me about when all three start moving, and how that is going to feel. I can't imagine what that is going to be like.

Oh, and there is another lady having triplets in town. Her husband works in the same building as Scott. We saw them at the doctor's office yesterday. She is 30 weeks along, and she does not look like it! She looks like she is just pregnant with one. I have a feeling I'm going to be a blimp! I'm blaming her nice belly on the fact that she is a lot taller than me, therefore her tummy is more stretched up and down. Mine is just going to explode outward (pleasant thought, isn't it??) I'll put pictures of the precious triplet house, aka, my belly on sometime in the near future.

I think that is everything for now. Happy April Fools Day!

Love, Shayna
