17 Weeks!!!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

The above verse was the scripture of the week at our house. God led Erik to this scripture and we both thought it was so beautiful. Then today my devotional ended with this very relevant statement; Patience and trust even in the monotony of your daily routine, will be the best preparation to courageously handle the stress and strain of a greater opportunity, God may someday send. Well the Lord really spoke to me through that sentence. Wow! That is so true, my life right now does seem monotonous and I don't have much of a routine anymore, but this is all preparing me for the life with three babies...courageously preparing me! God is so good!

So I know many of you have been anticipating the gender reveal. Well...I can't reveal it today because I haven't told my family yet. I think it's best I tell them before I tell you - the world. We did get to find out all 3 genders today and we are so excited! I will reveal them to you all on Sunday afternoon. So check the blog Sunday and you will find a great surprise.

I do however want to share a bit about the appointment today. We saw the perinatologist today and she looked at each baby and made sure everything is developing and working. Let me tell you it was amazing. A 2 hour appointment. On each baby we got to see the brain, the heart chambers, the stomach, the bowel, the kidneys, the spine, the legs and arms, hands and feet. They really magnify the heart so you can make sure all 4 chambers are working and that was so incredible to see. The scans they do are so much more magnified and clear, it was an experience. We will now get these types of scans regularly to ensure babies are progressing on schedule. We got a great report today, they are all on schedule and everybody is growing and thriving...even Mom! They checked me out as well and I am doing great! My uterus is now measuring at 25 weeks...crazy because you know I'm only 17 weeks. This is a great sign that I am making room for babies.

It has been an amazing day. I am so excited to share with you all the genders and the names of my three little miracles. Oh, how blessed we are. Stay tuned until Sunday!

Love you all,
