Quads updates

It was so fun to get out of the house last Thursday for my doctor’s appt.! I felt like I was going on a date with my husband! Well, I was 🙂 Being outside after a whole week, felt good, especially because it wasn’t too hot or humid. I can’t believe it has been a week already and I didn’t write this post right away. I really wanted to share some pictures of the quads and every day something came up and I just didn’t get the time to scan them.

Our precious quadlings are doing great. It was good to see them again and to get reassurance from the doctor that everything is moving forward as it should.  It’s definitely getting crowded inside my belly; as they grow bigger and bigger, it’s going to be so hard to see them clearly. My cervix is fine, they always check it because that’s one thing that could get me admitted in the hospital immediately. If it shortens – we have a problem. But so far so good, thank God! Fluids are great, babies are great so we continue to pray that God watches over this pregnancy every step of the way, it is His miracle!

Baby A ~ 1 pound
Baby B ~ 1 pound 2 oz
Baby C ~ 1 pound 2 oz
Baby D ~ 1 pound 2 oz
We don’t know exactly how long they measure, but probably the size of a banana, about 10 inches long.

Before I add pictures of the babies, I would like to say THANK YOU to all the people that have donate us baby clothes, toys and other baby gear! Expecting quadruplets can be overwhelming especially when you think about all their needs, but once again we saw how God uses everyone around us to bless us in abundance!

Here are some pictures of the Quads!

Twenty one!

fallbanner   You think time is flying by, well not for me! When I look back, I am surprised to see how far we’ve come and that we are at 21 weeks in this pregnancy already. But not being able to do anything or go anywhere makes me feel like time is not passing by fast enough! That feeling on Sunday nights, getting ready for bed because you have a whole new busy week ahead of you… I miss that! I thought that when I won’t be able to work anymore, one of the best things will be to know that I don’t have to get up so early every morning. But when there’s nothing to keep you busy, days are so long! And if you have insomnia, like me, nights are even longer! So guys, appreciate your jobs, school, whatever you do everyday that keeps you busy. It’s pretty boring otherwise.

Other than my lack of activity, which I guess is good for me right now, because I am not able to do anything anyway, it’s all good. I know for a fact that the quads are growing everyday, because my belly is huge 🙂 I feel them kicking more and more, stronger and stronger. I am not sure who is right by my belly button, but whenever he/she kicks… ouch! I guess that area is more sensitive. I wake up in the morning because someone is not happy about me laying on one side or the other, so they kick me! And even after I turn, they won’t leave me alone until I grab some breakfast! It’s funny, I am having fun with my babies even now, before they are born. And I can already tell it is not about me anymore. Tomorrow we’re going back to the Perinatal office, so it’s exciting, especially because soon-to-be Daddy is coming with us! I can’t wait to see his face when he sees the babies so big and how they move around in their own bubbles. It’s been a while since last time he got to join us. And I am happy that I actually have something on my  schedule for tomorrow, haha! I have to plan my morning in order to be able to leave the house on time. It’s a lot of work now to just get ready to go somewhere, believe me. After I shower, I have to rest. Sometimes I feel like taking a nap, that’s how much energy I put into it. And I am talking about a 10min shower, not half an hour. Then I blow dry my hair, that’s another exhausting task. I never do that anymore, unless I go to the doctor’s office. So, you think my life has changed? No way! 🙂

Last week I had some special little visitors, my boys! They were so cute! They made a banner for me, glued pictures of them on it and they all wrote me a little something. I loved Bennett’s scribble-scrabble! They have so much energy! It was so good for me to see them. They made the highlight of the week. Fletcher was wondering if we found suitable names for our boys, he knew we already picked the names for the girls. Well…
namesI got a great book from my sis-in-law, Adina. It’s such a cute book and it’s supposed to make it easier, right? Does everyone have such a hard time figuring out what to name their babies, like us? We got so many suggestions, but nothing sounds good. I go through the book and every time I find something I like, Oly doesn’t like it. If he finds something that he likes, I don’t like it! So we keep going back and forth like that. In the end, I know we’ll make a good decision, we just have to figure it out. There are so many cute names out there but we don’t feel like they match our babies, it’s crazy!

That’s it for now, form my extremely busy life to yours:) Quadruplets updates coming soon, can’t wait for tomorrow!

Good night everyone! I’ll be on night guard again, since I am not sleepy at all.
