Hi to all my followers. I’m sure you are anxious to hear my update. I was very busy yesterday with an appointment with my new MFM Dr. and then a visit with my OB office. After that I went to my prenatal massage and then dinner with my husband. I had a very full day. I will post pictures below.
I was exactly 20wks yesterday for my appointment.
Baby A is measuring 19w5d and 12oz 145hb
Baby B is measuring 20w1d and 11oz 130hb
Baby C is measuring 19w0d and 9oz 143hb
My cervix is measuring 3.7 (done with an internal wand)
My bp was 126/78
I gained 3.5lbs in 3wks
My belly measured 28wks…WoW! I’ve been measuring 5wks ahead, but theses babies had a growth spurt.
I’ve still been feeling wonderful except Sunday through Tuesday (19w 4-6days)I was having some mild pains in my lower belly area when I was up walking while at work. The pain stopped and I did call the OB and they said it sounded like ligament pain which it was since my uterus grew an extra 3cm. I’m feeling fine now.
I keep getting asked how I feel. I actually feel wonderful thus far….I know at some point I’m going to feel it, but for now I feel like I’m carrying 1 baby…lol…Nothing different yet. I’ll tell you not having Morning Sickness for any of my other 5 pregnancies and not even this one has been wonderful! I am very blessed.
For now I’m still working 45-50hrs a week, but get to sit down more at my desk rather than being up on my feel. It has helped a lot. My MFM Dr. and OB both said that as long as I’m not having issues, babies are fine and I’m not having stress at work I can stay. As you know anything can change in a moment. I’d like to continue working as long as I can to keep the fiancial stress off my IPs for now. We all know that at some point I won’t be able to sell cars. It just will be come to difficult.
My son’s 16th birthday is on Sun and what I wanted to do for him isn’t going to happen right now as he just couldn’t get his room cleaned an organized. I will do it later. Maybe after the babies are born. I’m so glad that he isn’t a girl turning 16 as she would not be happy with me not doing much for it. My husband will take him and a few friends to go see the Hobbit 2, then back to the house to play video games and them I’ll make some of his favorite food.
Oh, I mentioned that I started going to a new MFM Dr. and I absoutely loved him. He was much more interactive with me and after the u/s tech did her thing we sat down and looked at the babies himself to make sure there isn’t any signs of TTTS. Click the link to learn more. (http://www.tttsfoundation.org/medical_professionals/what_is_ttts.php). He also wanted to properly measure my cervix with the u/s wand and was very surprised that it hasn’t been done yet. I’ve only had my cervixed measured once or twice, but with the regular u/s wand that goes ontop of your belly. He was not happy and said that wasn’t the way it is suppose to be done. He didn’t just tell me all the negatives like my previous MFM Dr. did and only spent 5 minutes with me. I have to go every 2 wks now to then can monitor me. It’s just routine as if they can catch it early they have a better chance of helping the babies.
I gave my IPs a cute decoration for their Christmas tree. I’ll post the picture below. Any comments that you’d like to make I do love reading them. Thanks for all the interest and support in my blog and this triplet pregnancy. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas!!
