Soon we were taken to the u/s room to get started. The doc had a hell of a time trying to visualize Baby A. He was curled in a ball and way down low. After getting his skull and femur measurments she told the tech she was moving on to Baby B because Baby A "was annoying her". Baby B was nearly in C position but cooperated a bit more. As always, Baby C was a breeze. We know Baby A's estimated weight is inaccurate due to only measuring 2 of the normal 5 body parts, but she had them listed as 4lbs1oz, 4lbs10oz & 4lbs5oz. The babies look great and are growing like champs! After that was determined, the doc asked how much weight Trina had gained because she had a lot of edema. The answer was 5lbs in 8 days, we were told anything over 3lbs a week was a problem. To top it all off, she still had +1 protein in her urine. I knew that 3 checks in the "bad news" column was probably going to have some repercussions. Sure enough, doc had us go straight over to the hospital for more tests. We were told if all was well, she wanted to see us back on Tues.
The nurses in the L&D Testing department were all really nice. They came in and took several vials of blood, did an Non Stress Test on the boys, did contraction monitoring, took Trina's blood pressure every 15 minutes and had her give another urine sample. About 2 hours later we had the results. Trina's kidney and liver functions were normal, her clotting time was perfect, her blood pressure was perfect, the boys heart rates were great, she only had 1 contraction and although she still tested +1 protein, her urine was clear of blood, infection, ketones and glucose. Once again, the nurses were shocked at how well Trina was holding up and once again we avoided being admitted. Looks like we'll be seeing our peri again on Tues. :)
