James' mom Peggy got to go to the ultrasound with me on Friday and see all the babes. They looked really good and so did their fluids, they are concerned about TTTS in the inditicals (TTTS is twin-to-twin transfusion syndrom.) So far all looks good there.
So, we have decided to introduce you to them with their names. There is one catch though. We don't know who is who yet until they come out. We will be naming them in the order they come out.
The first baby boy will be Grant William. The second will be Alexander Timothy. And the third baby boy will be Ethan Mark. Most likely they will be coming out with the identicals first then the singleton, but we don't know for sure yet.

I guess I need to get to the good part though!!!!!!!!
We are having......
Well, we only know what the twins are. The singleton was NOT cooperating with us. They tried everything to get he/she to move, but their legs were tucked up under it's bum, so we couldn't see!
So, we know that the twins are.....
Are you ready?
Ok, then you must scroll down just a little bit more to find out....
Am I torturing you yet???
Ok, I will quit.
The twins are....
Yep!! Not what I thought, but we are still extremely excited! As we were watching the ultrasound I could tell almost immediately that they were boys. James still hasn't gotten the ultrasound reading down yet, but he'll get there. I didn't get a confirmation until we asked the tech and she said boys. James asked her how sure she was, and she said 99.9% sure.
So, we have to wait at least 2 more weeks to find out what the singleton is!!! Hopefully she/he cooperates this time. Fingers crossed that she/he does!!!
Well, that is all for now. James and I are going on a short weekend getaway and leaving the computers behind!!! How will we ever survive?!?! It will be nice to just disconnect and get away.
Ta ta for now!

I am getting big, but since I am only 16 weeks right now, I know I will get much MUCH bigger!!
Oh, I should tell you about my adventure on Friday. I decided about 12:30 that I wanted Taco John's for lunch. The nearest TJ's to our house is about 15 minutes away, so I went and got myself two tacos and a small super potato ole! MMMMMM it was sooooooo good. I started driving home and remembered that I needed to stop by the bank, which I had just passed, so I circled around and went to the bank.
As I sat in the bank drive up, I get a call from my doctors office telling me that I am missing my 1:00 ultrasound. We had rescheduled the ultrasound from that day to May 8, so I told them so. They are the ones that forgot to delate it from their system. But they had forgotten to schedule me for an office visit on May 8, which they still had scheduled for that day, so they asked if I could get there by 2:00. Sure, I had nothing else to do! So I went to the doctors office.
I was very flustered by the time I got there. I had basicly made 2 huge circles in the car, and just ate a sodium filled lunch. They called me back and had me stand on the scale. I looked at the number and was frustrated because I didn't think it was high enough. (Last appoinment I was short 2 pounds.) But then they looked at my chart and I was right on track! PHEW... but not good for my blood pressure!
They took my BP, and it was 140/90! I about fell over. I told them "I just ate at Taco John's. Take it again before I leave and I promise you it will be going down." So, they did, and it went down to 130/82, still high, but decreasing! They weren't worried. They just said next time don't do that!
The appoinment went well, and I got to see the babies and hear all their heartbeats on their small ultrasound machine there in the office. It is not a high quality machine, but it did it's job. They looked really good. The nurse reassured me that at our next appointment, since we want to know gender, the ultrasound techs are really determined and will spend some amount of time finding out what they are!!!!!!!! I am soooooooooooo excited!!
Well, I suppose I should stop blabbing on and on and let you get back to whatever you may have been doing. I will post pictures and results as soon as I can Friday evening, so check then for more. Our appointment isn't until 3:00 pm, so don't panic (those of you I normally call or text) if I don't get to you until about 5:30 or 6:00. (This is also the ultrasound where they will do a full systems check on each baby, so it will take a while.)
Like I said, I will let you go. Remember to leave what you think the babies are in the comments section!! I can't wait to see your responses!
