I seriously can't thank you all enough for the calls, emails, and texts sending well wishes and congrats to our family! We feel so loved and your prayers and support mean the world to us.
Monday marked nine weeks and today we were able to see the babies for sonogram #4. Everyone measured right on track with strong heart beats and all four were moving around in their quite cozy quarters. Seeing their little movements was the highlight of our week!
At only nine weeks these tiny babies are continuing to defy the odds. In the first trimester there is a 20-25% chance that one of the babies will stop growing and be absorbed (just like what happens to a vanishing twin). Every week my doctor has prepared us that we may only see three heartbeats at our next visit, and every week there have been four VERY strong babies. Isn't God amazing?!
After the scans we sat down for our last meeting with our fertility specialist. He sat in a chair across the table from us, shaking his head and grinning. He put his hand on his head as if to say, "Once again, I can't explain this." And then he said he'd see us when we are ready for #5. Oh, I'm so glad we've all kept our sense of humor. ;)
So, here we are. Nine weeks. Four healthy babies. And ONE very faithful, loving God who so clearly has His hands all over this!
