ALL CLEAR (18 Weeks 5 Days)

The CFO went to the doctor today and got the all clear for our trip up to Minnesota for Thanksgiving. She is feeling good...the doctor also told her she will more than likely be done with work at or around 23 weeks.

On an added note while at the doctor she had her belly measured again and she is measuring at 28 weeks.

Now all we are trying to figure out is some good names for our little girls. We have a few ideas but nothing nailed down yet. It is hard naming someone...you are the one who will decide what they will be called for the rest of their lives. I'm sure we'll figure it out someday. Good thing we have a little more time before that day will come.

Sorry no pics this post...but there will be more soon.

The Belly (17 Weeks 4 Days)

Well here it is the infamous belly of wonder... In some countries they deem it to be the ninth wonder of the world. Well probably not yet but soon...very soon. Not too much to post. This is a picture of the CFO's belly at 17 Weeks 4 Days. When we were at the doctors office on Wednesday they measured her belly at 26 weeks.



The picture doesn't completely give you the full effect but yeah you can tell she has some buns in the oven.

GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS (17 Weeks)

Here is a photo from today of all three in one photo...it is hard to see anything but it was the first one in a while where we got all three in one photo.


Well we found out today at our appointment that all of them are girls...so I will have my hands full. Here is the ultrasound pics of them...


Everything looks good...no new news other than the sexes of the babies. We will have our level 2 ultrasound at 19 Weeks 6 Days. The wife is doing well and everything seems to be OK. We are planning on going to Minnesota during Thanksgiving so the CFO will have a quick check up just before we leave and then we have our LONG drive up to the twin cities.
Hopefully soon I will be able to post some before and after photos of the wife's belly...so stay tuned.

Here we go... (16 weeks 6 days)

This is my first post and my first attempt at Blogging... I guess I should start off by telling a little bit about me. I am 26 and have been married for a little over 4 years. My wife is currently 16 weeks 6 Days pregnant with triplets and they are our first kids. We were unable to get pregnant through the traditional methods so we had to turn to fertility treatments. We attempted to get pregnant through medications with no luck so we then chose to do In Vitro. We put in two embryo's. Both took and one of them split. Lets just say we were a little shocked when we found out. Our expected due date is April 22nd.
Once the kids are born are plans are for me to stay home with the children while my wife becomes the infamous CFO (Chief Financial Officer) or working mom. She is a nurse and we decided it was the most logical choice for our current situation. Currently she is on light duty at work and is now down to 32 hours per week. I am currently a safety officer at a local middle school and a part time tattoo artist. Tomorrow my wife and I have a doctors appointment to see our kids and hopefully we will soon be able to see what sex they are. I will try and post ultrasounds and even pics of the wife's belly as this process goes on.
With this blog I hope to verbalize everything my wife and I experience as we go through this process of triplets. Enjoy.
