Bed Rest: Day 91

Today we had an ultrasound to measure the weights of the babies and generally check that all is well. Eli was able to make it to the appointment, so it was nice for him to be able to see the babies. I am holding steady at 7mm, and the triplets are growing like crazy!! Their weight results are...



That's 10lb 11oz of baby!

The ultrasound tech gave us a wonderful surprise by using the 3D ultrasound. No one thought we'd be able to get shots of the babes that were decent enough to break out this newer technology, but we got lucky today. If you've seen 3D ultrasound pictures before, you will notice that ours are a little harder to see than others. That's simply because there are various limbs and body parts surrounding their faces. It really gave us a greater appreciation for just how smooshed together there kiddos are. Jackson was the only one whose face we were not able to see, but we did get some cute shots of his piggies!



Luke's cute little face.



Wendy's profile.



Jack's little piggies! We weren't sure whose they were at first,
but after further analysis, it's likely they are Jack's.



Had to include a picture of Jack's TOENAIL.
The 3D ultrasounds are pretty amazing!

We had some great news today at our ultrasound and we are feeling so good about how things are going. All of the prayers are working! We are blessed.

Holy. Cow. That is amazing! It think Wendy looks like. . .Wendy! Of course, all squished up, fat face, knobby chin. . . maybe all babies look like Wendy! LOL! :) They are, all three, precious. Precious.

Abby - you look so wonderful - happy and serene! Seriously, I stand all amazed (to quote a phrase). Sure looks crowded all up in there, though. They look so beautifully developed, all fat and baby-like, even down to the toenails! Thrilling to see!This is the first time I have seen their full names - love them! Is Luke named for Luke Wilson, the actor, Owen's brother? I think Wendy looks like Livvy a little. Can't wait to see them for real (but not too soon). xoxoxo

Those are amazing pics!! I love the toes!! How cute the face shots are!! Can't wait to hold them!! Can I come see you this week?!!

Abby said...

Linda, Luke is NOT named after the actor. A coincidence that almost caused us not to name him that actually. :) But oh well, we like it.

Kelly, stop by anytime!:)

Ya, I like that name combination, too. Maybe he will grow up to be a doctor, like the apostle. You are always on my mind and in my prayers. This is such an exciting thing to think there are so many babies coming to your family, and by that I mean OUR family, too. xoxo
