Sorry I haven't been around much- I've been lurking ect but spending lots of time sleeping
Friday we had our NT scan and the doctor said results were excellent. I'll be 13 wks Monday- so excited and relieved to make it this far. He also spent 20-25 min on each baby, counting fingers, toes, eyes, ears, mouths, noses, limbs and even organs. It was wonderful to see 3 perfectly healthy babies developing and growing.
He even gave us an early gender prediction... While he said he won't "confirm" until our next appt in 3 weeks, he is fairly confident it's 3 girls. Amazing.
I also met with a dietician to discuss my meal plans. I have major food aversions and was worried I was eating too many carbs and not enough protein. But she assured I was doing fine at the point and my weight gain is good. She gave me tricks to get extra portions of protein without eating meat and I think it's all doable.
So that's my report. I finally felt good enough to join a birth board. And the ladies were incredibly welcoming. I also think having triplets is a bit of a novelty. One member, though I'm sure very innocently, had a response like- "wow congrats! Was it natural or did you take fertility meds?" I guess I have to get used to that sort of question but was a bit surprised by the directness. Even our friends, who we have been sharing the news with, haven't asked that. Oh well. Small price to pay I guess for my 3 little miracles!
Hope everyone is well! xo Nicole
