2nd OB Appointment

Today I went to the High Risk OB Clinic for my 13 week check up. The good news is I've gained 3 lbs this week and all the babies are doing well!!! All this eating is paying off! :) They did an ultrasound and we saw them all bouncing around! It's going to be a circus once I really start feeling them! Bad news...my heart rate has increased again so they put me back on Toprol. Before Nich & I got married I developed Tachycardia which resolved itself when I was 7 months along with Hailey. That's back and I also need to be on bed rest earlier - between 16-18 weeks. Sunday makes me 14 weeks. My next OB is 8/13 and I'll be 17.5 weeks. I'm planning on finishing that week and having 8/14 be my last day of work. All depending on how I'm feeling. Well, just wanted to give everyone a quick update - keep us in your prayers! Ultrasound in 2 weeks!

Hi there! I found your blog through Shelby (Paulk). CONGRATS on your quads!!!!!! How amazing and exciting!!!! I just wanted to let you know that I have tachycardia too- mine actually gets worse during pregnancy (I'm pregnant right now with #2) During my first pregnancy I had to wear a holter monitor- it got so bad I was admitted into the hospital one time- anyways- I know exactly what you're going through with that heart rate thing!!! It is awful and sooooo frustrating! I have a blog as well- mine is private, but if you'd like to read it, just give me your email address- you can email me at ashleymckenney07@gmail.com

Congrats again!!!!!! :)

Glad your little ones are doing well. Hopefully the medication will correct the heart issues. Scary but God is in control! Do you have plans for while you're on bedrest? Lots of blogging? Can you do computer work at home for your job? Glad you have family near by to help out! Guess you'll have time to figure out baby names :o) Love you guys and so excited for you!

Do you have any ideas for names yet?
