Thursday we went to L&D Testing for, well, testing. The first time we went there we had 3 very sweet nurses working on Trina and the boys. This time we had 1 not so friendly nurse. She wasn't mean per se, just not warm or talkative like the other ladies. After much "arguing" with Baby A, the nurse gave up on his NST. His super low position makes it nearly impossible to monitor him or even measure him on ultrasound. I hope he's not this difficult when he's out in the real world. :) Babies B & C both cooperated a little better and were given A+ on their heart rates and reactions and Trina's blood tests came back great. Along with her usual +1 urine protein, she also had some elevated leukocytes. I wondered if they'd put her on antibiotics "just in case" but they said it wouldn't be necessary. We left feeling very accomplished and with huge smiles on our faces.
Monday we went to the peri's office and saw one of our dr's associates. Our doc is out of town at a conference. Dr K was super nice and very warm. We liked him quite a bit right off. When he walked in the room he looked Trina over and asked "How many weeks along are you?" Trina said "34weeks today" with a grin. "And how many babies do you have in there?" "Three" bigger grin. "Well you must be doing something right, that's impressive" I thought it was very sweet of him to say. Then he started the ultrasound and got a sort of surprised look on his face. It scared me a bit until he said "These are NOT small babies!" in shocked sort of tone. I said "That's what we hear" huge grin. Once again Baby A made the doctor's job difficult, but with some poking, prodding and mumbling, he was measured. The boys are now estimated at 4lbs12oz, 5lbs1oz and 4lbs12oz and they are all head down! Looks like they heard about Friday's appointment and are preparing to come out the old fashioned way. As much as Trina would prefer it, that is just not going to happen. No way will our doc attempt a triplet vaginal delivery. And the best part of the appointment was pictures! Our first ones in forever!
