Hello all -
Just a quick post today, but we saw Dr. Barrett for a 24 week check up. I was 24 weeks on Tuesday which is a good milestone that increases the survival rate of the triplets greatly if they would be born today. Still not a great survival rate and very very risky, but we are making our way closer to our goal of 32 or 33 weeks - would be September 8th or later and we are very happy about that. Dr. Barrett said he was very impressed with how well I am doing and the babies look great. All 3 babies have a good amount of fluid around them and they are very active. The heartbeats looks great and he estimates all of them to be a little less than a pound and a half. Our next appt is for another full blown big ultrasound on July 28th so we are looking forward to that. Unfortunately, I have a cold right now so am feeling under the weather, and we hope I get over it quickly without meds!
We also recently got back from our cruise on Sunday to the Bahama's - we had a WONDERFUL time. It was really great to spend some one on one time with Dave before the babies are born - we definitely needed that. We went with our friends Melissa & Joe and had a great time with them as well. We had adjoining state rooms which was really nice :-) I took it very easy though and enjoyed the relaxation time I was able to get. I also slept great on the boat, I think I liked the slight rocking; it put me right to sleep!
Also - my parents were here the past week and a half and left on Sunday. We had a very nice visit with them, but unfortunately for them, there was a lot of work that needed to be done. They were SUCH great helpers though and we got a lot of stuff done that we really needed to do since we recently moved into our new home. We built garage shelves, put up ceiling fans, hung lots of pictures, and completely set up the nursery which turned out great. I will post some pictures of that soon.
Oh and one more thing - we have all the baby names picked out.
Baby A - Allison Marie Gorka (Ally for short)
Baby B - Jasmine Paige Gorka
Baby C - Tanner Preston Gorka
I tell you - picking out 3 names that we both agreed upon was quite tough!! But glad we finally agreed and that the naming part is beyond us.
All right - well my short post turned a bit long but oh well. Here are some pictures from our cruise and yes one shows a nice big side view of the baby belly.
