Quick Quint Update

Hooray and praise God!: As of Tuesday, all babies are well and big and active - the sonographer made a couple of comments about how busy they all were. She also verified the 2nd supposed girl is indeed a girl: Little tell-tale lines seen between the legs of both girls, very obvious parts visible on all three boys, and each baby looks perfectly formed (as far as they can tell at 16 weeks), even down to their lips and palates. The big ultrasound, which will take 2+ hours and check all anatomy on all 5 babies, will be on the 5th of June, when I will be 18 weeks along. We pray that one, too, finds each baby to be perfectly healthy in every way.  

God is graciously strengthening my anatomy week by week, too, so I can safely carry these babies without intervention anytime soon. I praise God that when He formed me in my mother's womb He made my body strong for this task He foreordained. :)

We leave each ultrasound more in love with our kids. :) It's fun to know where the girls and boys are, so when I feel movement I know it's one of our daughters or sons. One girl is on the far left of my belly, the other girl is way up high, approaching my right rib cage. All the boys are on the right and lower. I think the picture below is basically a mirror image. You can see all the sacs but not all the babies because of the various planes in which they are hanging out.

Thanks again for all your prayers!
Carrie

  1. Wow, what an amazing adventure you are having, and how awesome that way back when you yourself were formed in your mother's womb, God made your body strong for this task He foreordained for you. I'm so happy that all the babies are active and look healthy! I think it's fun that you know where each of the babies is and can identify who is kicking you! May God continue to encourage you along the way in this journey and keep everyone healthy and you and Gavin and Isaac trusting in Him each step of the way. Can't wait to see you when you get to Dallas! :)

  2. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm, and I'm sure I can't wait to see you either, although I'll be honest that I don't know which Judy this is. :) The two Judys I can think of are both much loved, however. I'm assuming you are married to "Grandpa T." since you said you read the blogs . . . Love you two!
