22 weeks

Today we had our 22 week doctors appointment. It went great!!! The babies look good, our little guy is huge. He is measuring 25 weeks and 1 1/2 lbs. Babies b and c are measuring right on target (1lb 3 ounces). We do have a little peanut. She is the one right under my right rib cage. The doctors are not worried because she has the same amount of blood flow and fluid as the other three. She is just going to be the smallest. Everything else looks really good, my cervix is over a 4 which is great!! I will start steroid shots next visit, which will be at 24 weeks. This is to help their lung development. Jon and I thank you for all of your prayers, they are definitely being answered!!!
Here I am at 22 weeks, measuring 34 weeks!

We were able to have some of our sonogram pictures in 3-D. Here is one of our little girls with her right hand under her chin. She is probably thinking "How can I get more room in here:)"

This is a picture of our little guy bearing it all!!!

OK so I just have to tell you that I don't think that anyone deserves children more than you do!! I really mean it!! You have always been such a wonderful role model! I have some really great memories with you!! I remember when I was a little girl (and even right now) how much I wanted to be just like you. I remember when you would come pick me up in your convertible with all of your friends. (I think one time Misty and Megan?? went with us)You just drove me around the block like 46,000 times!! (Great now I'm crying!)That's was such a BIG deal to me!!! Tiffany I believe that your FOUR children might possibly have the best Mommy in the world!! They are SO lucky! Although I don't know if four children can fit in a converatble!!!! :) I also remember going to CHS games only because I wanted to watch you cheer!!!! I wanted to be TIFFANY!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much for making growing up for me such an enjoyable time in my life!! You have always put other before yourself and WOW look at your reward!!!!

I remember the day you went to find out if you were pregnant or not... I was home sick that day and so my Mom and your Mom called me a lot to keep me posted! I talk to God a lot when I take showers, so that day I decided I would pray for you! I asked God to please let you be pregnant! I said God doesn't she deserve it? I said It Tiffany Michaels, the nicest girl on the planet!!! I said Jesus I pray that she would be pregnant with as many babies as there are Shampoo bottle right here!! Like 20 minutes later my Mom called and said that you were pregnant with four babies!!!!!! There were only three bottles in the shower!!!!!! HE NOT ONLY ANSWERD ALL OF OUR PRAYERS BUT IN MY CASE HE GAVE YOU ONE MORE!!!!

I can’t wait to see you!!!
I love you!!

You look great! Looking at these pictures I am just in awe. It is amazing that there are 4 little lives, real people, growing inside you. You're doing such an amazing job taking care of them already. I'm so proud of you and so thrilled at how well they're doing. They are so very blessed to have you and Jon for their parents.

Tiffany, I just wanted to say that I'm so excited for you & Jon to be having these babies. I've always said that out of all the people that I know, you are one of the only that I know that will do great with quads. You just have the perfect personality and outlook. I'm so happy to have found this blog to keep up with your progress. You look beautiful, just glowing! Keep up the good work!
Love & best wishes,

Dear Tiffany,
Please know that you are in my prayers. This is so absolutely exciting! Like so many people have said, you really look beautiful. You are going to be a great mom. After all, you had a great teacher. If you hadn't noticed, your mom is just a little excited about these babies. You are so lucky to have her and your dad and sisters all there for you. Looking forward to seeing you at the baby shower.

Tiffany and John,
I did not know you were in the hospital when I called to "chat". Thanks, John for updating this blog. I pray for you and your little ones every day (and sometimes 2-3 times!) You have family and friends that love you. You will be awesome parents!!! Love, Jan Spitz
