Today we got wonderful news. Baby Cib got the all clear from the High Risk OB! His heart, brain and anatomy all look great. The doctor explained that remaining babies from a triplet pregnancy tend to struggle in size and development. He said if he did not know my history and based on Cib's growth he would think he had been a healthy singleton baby from the start. After our all clear, well actually Dr Magee said, "You get an A+!", he said welcome to the other side of pregnancy. He acknowledged the weight you carry around as an IVF patient, the holding your breath even after the doctors all say you are ok, etc. He said we looked happy and it had finally sunk in, We are having a baby. A healthy baby. Welcome to the other side, the peaceful side, the beautiful side of pregnancy.
As of now, Cib weighs one whole pound and continues to meausre a full two weeks ahead of my due date. Both GREAT signs! Dr. Magee will continue to monitor us just as a precaution but feels confident we are all going to be just fine.
I love you baby Cib. I can't wait to meet you!
