Growing, growing, growing.....

Krilecia, Corey, & Hope December 2006
(This is what Hope will look like again December 2008!)
Today was a great day! My high risk doctor ordered an ultrasound to determine the boys weights this afternoon and all went well. I know you are all anxious to know how the boys are growing, so I won't keep you in suspense.
Baby A: 2lb 9oz
Baby B: 2lb 7oz
Baby C: 2lb 10oz
Can you believe how much they have grown in 3 short weeks? Shane and I are just thrilled with their progress. I was not expecting that much growth in such a short amount of time! That's almost 1lb for each baby.
They also did a "biophysical profile" on each of the boys today. This is when they check to make sure that they have plenty of fluid around each of them. Also that their little hearts, stomachs, and bladders are working good. Lastly, they look to make sure that they are all moving around, turning, and practicing breathing. The profile is done on a point scale, with the highest point of 8 being achievable. All of our boys got an 8 out of 8! Again, Shane and I as well as our doctors are just so thrilled with how they are doing!
I also got to see something really neat when they switched to the 4D ultrasound. All of the boys were moving around, Babies A & C had the hiccups! They all had their backs to us until the very end when Baby A turned around. I was able to see him open his eyes. It was SO cool! :)
I am hoping that they will give me permission to go out in a wheel chair tomorrow. My high risk doctor said that he needed to think about it. They did take me about 3 halls over today in a wheel chair to have the ultrasound done. Let me tell you, it was a real thrill to actually leave my room after 6 days! Then to see how well my boys were doing, it was truly a good day all around!

I am so happy to hear that you and the boys are all doing well! Glad you got to get out of the room for a while too.

Yay! Gosh...that's just awesome. Those boys are going to give you SO MUCH trouble when they're out here in the real world...they sure sound like over achievers!
If you want some more "blog" reading material,, is really funny (& highly inappropriate at times). Anyway, she just had twin girls, one of which was just under 2 1/2 cute.
Keep up the good baby growing work!
Love you!

You better not have those boys this month. I have too much going on. Plus, they need to stay in there and keep you company while you're on your hospital vacation. Marcus & I went to the Christmas Parade last night and saw three 6 six year old boys dancing to the band's drums. We were like, "Hope and Shane are gonna have too much fun with theirs!" Just try to wait to have them until after Christmas. My schedule should be free then. Love all of you guys!

Wow. I know when you saw that little munchkin turn around, it probably brought tears to your eyes. It would have me!! I am glad you and the boys are still doing so well. Keep up the "good work"!!

Yay, I figured it out again! Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. I'm getting my list going of things to do while we're hanging out next weekend. I can't wait to see you. :)

I LOVE YOU said...
