Surrendering to the universe

We are working on truly letting go and going with the flow with this whole pregnancy experience.  It is NOT easy for these two mamas who like to plan and who like to be in control, and who maybe, sometimes, get a little flustered when things don't go as planned.  You would think that after two plus years of things not going as planned we'd be used to this.  But I don't know that we'll ever get used to it.  I think it will just be a continual journey for both of us.  When we found out that we were pregnant we talked to the OB about how we didn't want a lot of ultrasounds, and might only do the one at 20 weeks.  We declined the initial ultrasound at 8 weeks only to have the bleeding scare on the flight from Seattle which is when we found out it was triplets.  At our last OB visit we declined an ultrasound they wanted us to do at our next appointment, scheduled for Friday, the 17th.  And lo and behold, Michelle called me on Monday afternoon to tell me she was bleeding a little and that the OB wanted to do an ultrasound Tuesday morning.  (maybe this will teach us to stop declining ultrasounds!)  Ultrasounds for three babies take a long time.  This was just a "quick check" to make sure everything looked okay (which it did) and it took like 45 minutes.  Here are the latest pictures.  These pictures weren't that easy to get because Baby A & Baby B were moving all over the place!  It was especially hard to get the shot of all three of them.

I told Michelle on the way home that altough theoretically we wanted to not do many ultrasounds, that I secretly LOVE them and it really helps me feel connected to these three babies who are not in my belly.  I love seeing the changes each time and seeing them move around.  So, Michelle and I will continue our personal journeys in letting go and surrendering to the universe, while simultaneously planning like crazy so  that we are as ready as we can possibly be whenever these three kiddos decide to be born.  =)
