I went to the Dr again on Monday. Babies are still perfect! I even got an estimate of their weights. Every other visit they do an extra long ultrasound and I just learned it's called a growth scan and it estimates their growths. Here are their weights as of Monday:
Baby A 2lbs 1 oz
Baby B 2 lbs 1 oz
Baby C 1 lb 15 oz
They are in the 33-40% percentile which is really good for triplets. The ultrasound tech even commented how crazy it was that it still looks like they have room in there. Baby A is the lowest one, the one that will come out first and just happens to be the spare. Baby B is in the middle and Baby C is on top. Baby B has the least amount of room. B & C are the identical ones. Baby A looks a lot different than her twin that are triplets sisters.
I'm SO EXCITED to see what color of hair they all have. What color of eyes. We have a lot of every colored eye in our family so we could get anything. Of course the ultrasound makes it look like the twins look exactly like Colum and I. But they could still come out dark but I have a feeling we will get some blondes.
Still haven't pin pointed exactly what the names are going to be. This is not like me at all. We have a handful and may just name them when we see them. Colum was almost a Henry, but he came out and was definitely a Colum.
It's getting harder and harder for me to get around and I spend most of my time in bed. I haven't been put on bed rest but my body is basically doing it on it's own. I'm now measuring 38 weeks which is bigger than most singleton full term Moms ever measure. The reason being is that the baby drops into the pelvis and most don't measure past 37 weeks. If I get up to do the littlest things I start having Braxton Hicks or get a sharp pain on my upper left side. It's frustrating because there is still a lot of unpacking to get done and the babies nursery looks like a bomb went off. I'm slowly getting things washed and put away. I die every time I put away a preemie item. They are just so so tiny. Our kitchen should be done by the end of today and I will get to use my sink with a disposal soon! I am so excited to just be able to rinse off dishes and then put them straight into the dishwasher! Every easy thing is going to be a huge help around here.
My pickle cravings are pretty much gone and I eat watermelon a little less. I mostly crave ice, and basically snack on it all day...yes I am a little bit anemic and take iron everyday. I'm doing really really good. So far I am so lucky to not have complications and I have a feeling I will go to 35 weeks but for now just have my eyes set at 32.
The trial starts on Monday. A huge thank you for all the thoughts and prayers! We are going to need it over the next few months. I'm so looking forward to having the trial, one more big thing behind us. Have a great weekend!
