Yep, you see right! There's 4 little babies in there! There certainly has been a flood of all kinds of emotions, but it's setting in for us. Today I saw my new doctor, Dr Nugent at U of M. He specializes in multiples. I got to meet 2 doctors, a resident, and 3 nurses. I'm the only set of quads in the clinic and since they're so rare everyone was so excited to see me! I'm in really good hands. I had my first OB visit with Dr Pastoriza in Jackson, but when they found out there are so many, they transfered me right away to total care at U of M. It takes just over an hour to get there and I'm sure we'll have the route memorized with how many times I'll be seen. I'm considered high risk and will be monitored very closely. The main thing right now is to eat, eat, eat! Dr said I'd be up to a 4,000 calorie diet! Milkshakes everyday! It wouldn't be half bad but I'm still pretty sick. I have another ultrasound July 6 (on the high resolution machine!) and will know more then. At my appointment last week, all the babies had strong heartbeats and were the same size, to the day! Keep praying they stay healthy and growing strong!
Hailey is adjusting well. She's already named them and said she'd change their diapers! I'm gonna get that in writing! :) So right now, the babies names are girls: Rita & Nina, boys: Noodle & Toodle. Gotta love toddlers! She kisses my belly 4 times and has been really sweet. She told me tonight she has 10 babies - 5 boys and 5 girls in her belly and she needed to go to the dr to make sure they were all ok. She's so caring! We'll definitely keep this updated and will let you know our progress! Keep us in your prayers!
