New Growth Ultrasound

Baby A weighed 3lbs. 11oz.
She has her head on my cervix, it actually took the doctor and the ultrasound tech to get her measurements. The doctor physically pulled up on my belly from my pelvis while the ultrasound tech got the image. Then he checked my cervix by hand and said he felt her head! Amazingly we did get a profile of her and were able to watch her open and close her mouth and stick out her tongue.

Baby B weighed 3lbs. 12oz.
He has moved a little lower too. We were able to get a 3D and profile picture of him. He opened and closed his eyes while we watched him and you could actually see his eyes look up, down and side to side. He did get a little mad at his brother towards the end because baby C kept sitting on his face, literally his butt was sitting on B's face. Our ultrasound tech thought it was so funny she wanted to watch them for a little while and baby B finally got mad enough he began to poke, pinch, and punch baby C to get him to move.

Baby C weighed 2lbs. 12oz.
He is still our little runt and Steven thinks he has little man syndrome. Mainly because of him bullying or picking on the other babies. I was a little concerned about his weight but the doctors think he is okay. He has gained weight since last time just not as much as the other two. The doctor said he was so active and his heart rate was good. He said we will continue to watch him but he is probably fine. He did rank in the 15 percentile but this is based off a singleton percentage. I think if he gets down into the 2 or 3 percentile range is when they start to worry or get a little more concerned.

I am doing fine. The contractions are getting a little more intense but they are still not consistent. The doctor did check me by hand
after he realized how low baby A was and he said I am effaced 80% and only dilated to 1cm.

I do have ultrasound pictures but I haven't had a chance to scan them in yet so those will come with a later post.

so good to hear that they are growing so much!! i still can't believe that you have 3 babies in your belly...you are so tiny. and i love the little quirks that they have so far...do they put the ultra sound on a dvd for ya'll? that would be awesome to have in a couple of years!!

That is so exciting! It's good to hear they are growing and things are progressing. I'm anxious to see what kind of little personality Baby C has when he gets out here! :)
