C-Section Scheduled!!!

So yesterday we went to the peri's office for another check up. She did a quick scan for all 3 heartbeats and we were done. It was the first time we didn't get a full growth scan. I guess we're pretty spoiled that way. Trina still only has +1 protein in her urine so that's holding steady. She was a little bit swollen, but managed to lose a pound of water weight over the weekend. Her blood pressure was a teeny bit elevated, but not nearly as bad as the last time. If they'd give her 5 minutes to get settled, they'd get a perfect reading. It takes energy and lots of blood flow to move that big belly around!

The doctor was surprised at how well Trina was doing. She was expecting to take us to the OR that evening! We were shocked as we were definitely NOT expecting any such thing given Thursday's test results. She complimented Trina on what a great job she's been doing and said she wanted her back at the hospital for another round of preeclampsia testing on Thurs morning. If there were any blips, she'd deliver us before the weekend. She's going out of town for a conference and doesn't want just anyone on call to do the c-section if an emergency arises. She wants to do it herself. If all looks good with the tests, she wanted to deliver us the middle of next week. Trina blurted out "But I wanted to make it til October!". She said "Fine, I'll give you til the first, but I'm not letting you go through another weekend. I want you in testing Thursday and here Monday seeing my associate." So there it is. Friday, October 1, 2010 at 34weeks 4days we will have our baby boys. We only have 2 more appointments before we have babies. One for blood, urine & NST and one for urine & ultrasound. So freaking crazy.

Wendy said...

I found my way to your blog through babycenter and am so excited for you guys! But...can you talk your doc into Sept 30th instead. The boys will celebrate their golden birthdays as 1 year olds...that's not memorable!! If they're born on the 30th, they'll celebrate their golden birthdays on the 30th...and that's awesome!! Just something to think about...

I just think you are the most awesome triplet carrying stud I've ever known. Ok, I've not known personally anyone else...but DAMN girl you rock.
I can't believe she wants to carry that big belly around until October. WOW !
Keep it up girlie and you might just get your wish.
