Today the girl babies weighed in at 2.4 and 2.5 pounds while the boy baby weighs 2.6 pounds. They are still keeping up with a singleton baby at this point but this is the time when they may start lagging behind. Baby A and Baby C are head to head on the left side of my belly (see picture below) while baby B’s head is on the right side at Baby A’s feet.
My goal is to make it to 35 weeks. I have already reached a major milestone at 28 weeks. Now our babies have made it past the point of major developmental problems if they happened to be born now. My next milestone is 32 weeks when we can cross brain bleeds and a few other horrible sounding conditions off the list.
I am going to be able to reach my goal more easily now that my nanny Laura started this last Monday. Wow, what a relief. Ava took to Laura the first minute she came on Monday and they have been having a great time ever since. They play hard all day while I can sit and relax in my bed and incubate. It has been such a relief to have Laura here and have Ava accept her with open arms.
The mothership is signing off . . . until next time.
