Wednesday's doctor appointment was quick and uneventful. I asked the tech if we could get some take home pics since we didn't get any 2 weeks ago. She proceeded to snap the crappiest fuzziest pics ever. Three are face shots, and I use that term pretty loosely. One was a pretty good hand shot and the last was another gratuitous penis shot. Ah well, maybe next time we'll have the other tech. She's much nicer and always gets us good pictures. The boys are now weighing in at 1lbs6oz, 1lbs7oz and 1lbs7oz. I can't believe they're nearly a pound and a half a piece. That's so awesome!
As of about 5 minutes ago, I have officially felt all 3 of the boys kick. I feel baby C most often, which is funny because Trina feels him the least. I've felt Baby B on 2 separate occasions, but Baby A has been holding out on me...until now! :) Trina feels A & B most because when she lays down, whichever one is next to the bed kicks. When she monitors for contractions, the sensor sits either to the left or right of her bellybutton and whose ever side it's on kicks and kicks it. They're very interactive these days. The funniest thing is that we've started seeing a correlation between food Trina likes and Baby C's activity. Several times now Trina has said "Ooooh, cake" or "Mmmm, pizza!" and C has started kicking like mad. He's going to be our fat boy. :)
Before we started thinking of names or even knew genders, I asked Trina if we were going to name the actual babies in utero (Baby A is Bob, Baby B is Steve, etc), wait til they were born to figure out which of our chosen names fits each baby's personality best or just say "These are the names in birth order." I've known people with multiples who have done it each way. She said we should wait until they came out to "dub" them. I didn't really have a preference, so I agreed. Then other morning this conversation went down.
Trina: "Ooh, *L* is kicking hard!" :)
Me: -confused- "Who is *L*?"
Trina: "Uh, your son" -looking at me like I'm dumb-
Me: "I meant which one? I was under the impression you wanted to name them later"
Trina: "Well since Baby B is either *P* or *S* I figured Baby A should be *L* and Baby C should be *D*. Why? Did you want *L* to be a different one?"
I didn't really follow her "logic", but I don't have a reason to change the order. So there you have it. Our boys have names. Well, mostly. We have Baby A's first name set, Baby B is narrowed down to 2 possible names and Baby C is fully named. Depending on what Baby B's first name ends up, his and Baby A's middle names are already picked. Did anyone follow that? :) I keep hearing things like "It must be SO much easier to pick out 3 names, you don't have to narrow it down as much" This is a load of crap. We had Baby C's name picked out in a flash. If we only needed one name, that would be it and we'd be done. Coming up with 3 names simultaneously is hard. I feel a coin toss decision coming up pretty soon...
