So it has taken a little too long for me to get this post up. These are from our appointment on October 23rd, which was actually a big milestone. At this appointment they look thoroughly for signs of a number of abnormalities and diseases. The look at the major organs, heartbeat, blood supply, signs improper lip development and thickening of the skin on the back of the neck. This is the point where people with a singleton pregnancy get their ultrasound to make sure everything is ok and find out the sex of the baby. I am getting pretty used to having all of these pictures taken every other week, but needless to say, I held my breath through this appointment. I gradualy felt better and better as we got the "all-clear" every step of the way. So, just past the halfway point in the pregnancy, everybody is looking very healthy. They are almost 1 pound each and are becoming very active. There is hardly a moment that goes by where one of them isn't moving, kicking, or punching. We also got video of the ultra sound at this appointment as well. The doctor found out about the blog and gave me a couple of clips to post immediately. This clip is very short, but I plan on transferring the rest of the video sometime soon. You are looking at the heartbeat of triplet 1.
