Hi everyone. I'm going to start a little with yesterday. I had a quick prenatal with Julia which we don't draw any real conclusions from as this pregnancy requires more expertise but I like doing it and it lets us connect and look at the little things, blood pressure and measurements etc. I am at 18 weeks and I measured 33 centimeters! wow no wonder I've been feeling so big! anyway I noticed that I wasn't getting the movement that I had been getting on my left side and although the Doppler isn't that accurate with 3 heartbeats we tried anyway and were fairly sure that there was a heartbeat there and that set my mind somewhat at ease. So then I go to my ultra sound today and I found out why my baby isn't moving so much. OK again we have Babies A, B, and C turns out we have a case of twin to twin transfusion between Babies A and C the blood is not flowing correctly and Baby C isn't getting what it needs to grow in result baby A has a bunch more fluid and Baby C has almost nothing, making it sucked up against the side and it really cant move. The size was another big issue babies A and B are the right size.. 18 weeks and Baby C is 15 weeks in size. meaning that sense my last ultrasound baby C hasn't grown at all. So where do we go from here? we really don't have more then one option to go to Seattle and do a procedure than they try to laser the place where the 2 babies blood flow connects they say that there are allot of successes with this and our only other option is do nothing which could make us loose at least the 2 babies. anyway i will know more soon don't know when Ill have time for updates but please everyone. Pray I know God can do anything so we will see where He wants to bring us

this is baby B

A and C's heads and B's stomach
By the way we have decided to wait till my husband get back in July to find out the sexes just something we can do together. And yes we both are very exited the way we look at it is God doesnt bless many people with 3 kids at once but He did us so we jsut thank Him for that

My last ultrasound

so its been 3 weeks sense my last ultrasound and I finally found the time to post what happened sorry it took so long. Anyway when we started my first question was are all 3 babies alive? when I saw movement everywhere I was temporarily satisfied and I let the ultrasound tech do her thing with measuring etc and just prayed that the news would either be the same on baby A or better I just cant handle worse news right? The night before the ultrasound my husbands cousin whom had miscarried a twin lost her second baby at 16 weeks. her mom, is Nancy and she takes me to all my appointments along with my mom, kind of as an acting mother in law for me (but not a scary one=) anyway so we were a little more on edge and really praying for good news. WE tried asking the ultrasound tech how baby A looked and she didn't really feel comfortable saying she said she would let the doctor look and tell us but she did show us baby A's heartbeat just to be reassuring. When the doctor came in he let us know right away the little bit of fluid under baby A;s skin was so minimal that it really wasn't worth mentioning Wow although I still pray every day for my 3 little ones I also thank God that He has taken care of my little baby A
