18 Weeks

Well it's taken a little while for me to get caught up on this. The images below are from Greta's appointment on 10-06, which I was unable to attend. The doctors were able to confirm that we are having 2 boys and 1 girl, so we really have produced an instant family. We also had our first mini-scare on the 10th. Greta started having an uncomfortable tightness in her stomach, so our specialist recommended that we head over to St. Joseph's just to make sure everyting was OK. Everything turned out fine, but it is apparently normal for a uterus with 3 babies in it to experience irritation and tiny contractions. Greta will probably have to start spending more time resting from here on out. Our next appointment is on the 23rd of October.

Great news on finally confiming one of them is a girl - how exciting! The hospital visit must have been quite a scare. The tightness in the uterus is most likely what they call Braxton-Hicks "contractions" that some women start experiencing as early as 20 weeks. They can be quite uncomfortable and a bit scary. Please rest as much as you can!!! Keep us posted!

Please let me know if there is anything you guys need. Not sure that I have the skills you are looking for but I am really good at watching sports and yelling at the tv! Oh, i can probably figure out how to do other things too.
