Oh man! I am on CLOUD 9! First, we have made it to 30 weeks, incredibly enough. Then, our prayers were answered & the babies have grown & are doing well! I can't get over all the excitement today!
So, let me explain the appt today for you all. We got there & of course I get weighed. I am always worrying that I will gain too much but thanks to the vomiting & not being able to eat much, I only gained 2 1/2 lbs. That was a relief! I'm officially up to 50lbs total. I am fairly happy w/ that b/c I know I won't gain too much more before this trio is born. While she was weighing me, I asked about the protein levels. She said only trace amounts were showing. WOOT! No change from the last 2 visits. Can it get any better? YEP! It was then time to take the BP...I was a bit worried b/c unlike last time, I was sitting up the whole time while we waited & even sat up on the car ride to the peri's office. Well, well, well...to our surprise, it was only 130/70. I'm still holding strong.
We end up having to wait a bit more before going in to the ultrasound room. We finally get in there & the peri comes in. She asks me if I have any complaints & I proudly tell her no. Then I put my hand up to my mouth in a secretive motion & tell her that the only thing is that my reflux is pretty bad. She said, "Well, if that is your only complaint, I'll take it. That isn't a true complaint!" Hehe...I told her from the beginning I wasn't a complainer. I plan on proving it to her. I'm just not much on complaining or sympathy actually. Anyway, she prescribed me something to help w/ the reflux b/c right now, I am eating Tums like they are candy!
From that point, it was belly time! The cervix is still holding beautifully. Everything looks good w/ the babies. Their stats are...
Sofi ~ 2lb 13oz, up 13oz from last visit 10 days ago
Gabi ~ 2lb 14oz, up 10oz
Ian ~ 3lb 1oz, up 10oz
Their weights just proved to us that the last time, they were off. We were right! She said to expect their growth to slow down considerably since they are running out of room. I can understand that b/c they really are running out of room. I'm hoping they all get in the 3 1/2 to 4lb range. That would be fantastic! Honestly, I think Ian won't have a problem getting there. The girls, they will be the smaller ones. We'll see once they come out.
Speaking of coming out...I asked her if we were going to have babies this month & she said YES! WOOT! She said something about right around Easter so I'm thinking we will have them on the 31st if I haven't had them before then. Oddly enough, that is my mom's b-day. You have to understand something, I was born on the 15th so I was a gift to my mommy. Now, I am going to get a gift for my b-day, my 3 precious children AND be able to experience the joy my mom experienced when she had me. I think it is funny how this whole thing is coming full circle. Also, it would be Easter weekend. Could this be a sign from God? I think so!
To everyone reading this, thank you so much for taking the time to do so. It means the world to me that there are so many that care about us. God bless & keep the prayers coming!
