And Baby D is a...


We are so beyond thrilled to welcome a fourth little girl. Never in a million years when we were thinking about what our family would be like did we imagine FOUR little girls. But, now we can't imagine it being any other way.

Our sonograms are getting longer and more in depth. This week the sonographer started measuring the baby's by the femur, belly, and head. She also checked each baby's brain, neck, spine, kidneys, stomach and heart. Everyone looks perfect and we are SO thankful! 

All the babies are measuring into next week. Looks like my good eating in Costa Rica really paid off!

Baby A - 17 weeks 2 days, 6 oz
Baby B - 17 weeks, 6 oz
Baby C - 17 weeks 1 day, 6 oz
Baby D - 17 weeks 1 day, 6 oz
And Mom is measuring between 27-28 weeks.

My doctor said he's so pleased with how everything is going. He said to go ahead and start trying to rest as much as possible (which I already do for most of the day). I'm really hoping that the more I rest now the longer I can keep from going on hospital bed rest. He also went ahead and put an end to travel after next weekend. Its more as a precaution since things are going really well and we don't want to do anything to jeopardize that.

I haven't uploaded the pictures from today, but thought I'd share the girl outfits I purchased after the appointment. Bows! And super girlie clothes! YAY!

I promise we'll share the names very soon!

Yay yay yay!!! FOUR girls! I love it; those are going to be four beautiful little ladies. Praying for all six of you, and I'm praising the Lord for such great strength and health. Can't wait to hear their names. I know they will be perfect.
