24 Weeks 5 Days - but who's counting?

First – Thank you all for the great feedback on the names!! Great suggestions & it has definitely given us some more to think about and ponder. I’ll keep checking the comments so if there is anyone else out there who is infamous for suggesting baby names (Kevin) and still wants to post (Kevin) feel free to do so (Kevin). :-)

We had our appointment with the perinatologist on Monday the 16th & everything looks good.

In fact, the babies look great! Baby A is measuring 1 lb 13 oz (he’s always been the biggest!), Baby B is 1 lb 11 oz & Baby C (the girl) is 1 lb 10 oz. They are all a little ahead of schedule in terms of size and weight so everyone was happy about that. The doctor is keeping me on a two week schedule for now since everything is so thankfully boring. We won’t go back until March 30th.

Our doctor’s office also arranged a tour of the NICU at the hospital where we will be delivering. The charge nurse took us around & we were so impressed with the NICU and the staff. Carl & I decided that you have to be an angel to work there. They showed us a little boy who was born a week ago at 25 weeks 5 days. He was so tiny & there were so many tubes – he wasn’t even mine and I just wanted to pick him up and love him and somehow make him feel better. Definitely motivation to take it as easy as possible and grow the babies to 35 weeks!

All right – off to rest. Everyone enjoy the first weekend of March Madness!
