Today, Ross and I went to see Dr. Groom, the high risk doc; all the babies were doing great. They were all measuring in the 99th percentile and all heart rates were in the 160’s. Of course, he cautioned us that it is still early and you can never predict what will happen with these pregnancies. He and his staff were filled with lots of info and I think helped put me at ease. Right now, I sort of panic before every doctor’s visit just waiting for the other shoe to drop; thank goodness it wasn’t today!
The only downside was that I am behind in my weight gain; I sorta suspected that but it was confirmed. In Dr. Groom’s words, “It’s time to start chunking it down!” So if anybody has any really yummy, high-fat recipes, please pass them my way 🙂 It’s the first time in a while that I will be able to eat seemingly guilt-free; every girls’ wildest dream.
Here are some pics from today; they were all quite cooperative for the exam except for Baby B. And with me and Ross as parents, I have no idea where that streak of stubborness could have come from…
So thanks for all the prayers and well wishes; just keep at it 🙂 As many of ya’ll know, this is a very stressful time for me and Ross with his plans for match and residency; you throw all this in on top and it makes for some crazy times. So send us all the peaceful, calming vibes you can spare; we definitely appreciate them.
