Just One Baby This Time!

We’re only having one this time! I’ll be honest though, I’m pretty sure Nick and I were both holding our breath when the ultrasound started this morning. Last time I could tell it was two right away (they found #3 90 seconds later), but this time I couldn’t see anything except one little bean in there. Whew!

The tech knew we had triplets last time, so I think she was nervous with us. She is the one who labeled our U/S photo for us…

Now I’ll just need to deal with waiting months on end for my next (and probably last) ultrasound. I was so spoiled last time! Everything looked good with the little one. He/She was measuring 2-3 days ahead of where I’m at, but they said they probably wouldn’t change my due date because of their margin of error. Heart was beating quite fast at 182!

I’m so looking forward to having a “normal” pregnancy. I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s like to have just one baby wiggling inside of me. I’m looking forward to nursing just one baby. I’m looking forward to rocking my baby to sleep (just once in a while of course!). I’m looking forward to not going through nearly as many diapers, and am even toying with going cloth this time. I’m looking forward to the convenience of an infant seat that can just pop out of the car. There’s just so much I’m looking forward to!

    Congratulations! I had one baby and then twins and really enjoyed nursing and rocking one baby to sleep once in awhile. I use cloth diapers and love it, hope you give it a try.ReplyCancel

    Hi Helen,
    I was in your October 07 Baby Team on and I still follow your blog. I have to admit that whatever I am going through with my 1 girl is always put into perspective by reading about your 3 boys! They are adorable and it sounds like you are doing a great job with them. I just saw you are pregnant again, brave woman, and wanted to say Congratulations!!! We are also expecting this September. We are having our 1st boy. Hope you get your little girl – she would be so spoiled by having 3 older brothers!

  • I’ve visited your site before but hadn’t since the big announcement of baby #4 I guess. Congrats! Like were saying about all the things you looked forward to, with us the twins came second so we had been “spoiled” so to say with a singleton first. I have missed the one on one time, the snuggling, and how easy just one is with the twins. But I wouldn’t change any of it for the world!ReplyCancel
