So….what’s new? A BIG NOTHING!

The babies are the size of a lime! Well four limes! Drink anyone?

Giving a 12 week update, since we will be completing our 1st trimester this week, and we are trying to think about what updates we can give out. We haven’t been to the doctor yet, and at our last appointment with Dr. Hermann, it was just a quick, “ok, good luck” visit. It seems like forever since we have gotten to see the quads and check on them, Danielle is scared to death that when we do get to go it will be bad news. This seems to be a theme for our pregnancies- DON’T GET YOUR HOPES UP. But we keep reminding her that it will all work out like it’s suppose to, and there isn’t anything she can do different now to change that outcome.

Our 1st appointment with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine doctor is April 9th, which just so happens to be my mom’s birthday (so Happy Birthday, and I hope that brings us some good luck). We will be going to see Dr. Michael Zaretsky at Children’s Medical Center Legacy in Plano. That in it’s self was a major project, finding a doctor that would take you with quads, that takes both insurances, delivers at your choice hospital, and has a highly rated NICU for the babies. It was a full time job, and once you finally get everything ready and you have your selected doctor, you just have to wait, because they don’t see anyone before you 12 weeks. Also we may get to find out some of the sexes of the babies at this appointment.

We have really been lucky in the fact that almost everyone that has had quads, has a blog, so we have been able to read, read, read, (at least 2 blogs start to home coming a day), it’s really given us some insight for what is going to be happening for us in the upcoming weeks. We had some hesitation with opening up for everyone to see, but if it wasn’t for people like that we would be in the dark about a lot of things, so expect us to be completely open from cravings to constipation. (Speaking of cravings, I have been woken up by Danielle the last week around 4 a.m. each morning with a new one, the last one that I can remember is the 4 a.m. wake up for McDonald’s French fries.)  We have so much to do, but we are frozen, we don’t want to start doing anything because we don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves and something happen. One thing is that our Explorer that we bought 3 days before we found out we were having quads will not fit our family, and it appears that a family of 7 with a triplet stroller and a twin stroller will not fit into anything other than a small bus…frankly I don’t think I can do it!
