Not much going on!

It's been a few weeks since I have been able to blog, I am finally recovering from the holiday madness.  :) Our Christmas was wonderful, Ella had a blast, and we really enjoyed spending time with all of our family. We had our NT scan done 2 days before Christmas, and everything looked perfect with all 4 babies!! They are growing well, and are all actually measuring ahead of dates now instead of behind. I was so relieved to know that everything looks okay so far, I was really worried knowing there was 4x the chance of something being wrong (since there are 4 babies, not because they had increased chances). The tech also took a guess at the genders for us by using the nub method, and she guessed babies A&D are girls, and baby C is a boy. Baby B would not straighten out his spine so we could see the true angle of the nub, but it looked like a boy to me.  ;) This is not really accurate, only about 75% accurate or so, but it was fun to take a guess! We should know the genders with great certainty in about 2-3 weeks! We have 2 girl names picked out, and another that we really like, but we can not come up with a single boy name!! It's driving me crazy but I have always had a hard time picking out boy names.

We had a little scare this past Friday with having contractions. I had been having them for a couple of days but they started coming all the time on Friday. They had me go to L&D and everything was fine with all of the babies, and my cervix was still long and closed. Now we just have to go to more frequent doctors appointments to make sure my cervix is not thinning. Other than that, everything is going great so far! I have really put on some weight the past couple of weeks and I am almost up 20 pounds, which sounds crazy for not even 14 weeks yet! The nutritionist set my goal for 45-50 pounds by 20 weeks, I really hope I can get close to that! There's really not much more to report, which is a good thing!
