Visit to the Specialist (24w5d)

Well, today was the regularly scheduled appointment with the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor. We had a good ultrasound. My cervix is still long and closed up tight...phew! The babies are doing great! They are so active it is hard for the U/S tech to get her measurements before they move around. As usual, baby C (Will) was talking away. It is so funny and cute! Baby B (Allison) was jib jabbing a little as well. They were able to give us a look at Daniel and Allison on the 4d setting, and they are so cute! It was the first time they didn't look skeletal. The babies weighed in as follows:

Baby A (Lexie): 1lb 6oz (up 5 oz in 2 weeks)
Baby B (Allison): 1lb 7oz (up 4oz)
Baby C (Will): 1lb 13oz (up 4oz) (corrected 9/20)
Baby D (Daniel): 1lb 10oz (up 7oz!) (corrected 9/20)

We are doing so well, I don't go back for 2 weeks! After that it will be weekly.

I also had the pleasure of my first steroid shot today. OUCH! And the kicker is I have to get another one my flu my Tdap in 2 weeks. UGH! I hate shots! My bum hurts from that shot!

I have become a hot topic of conversation at the weekly high risk meeting at the hospital now. At the meeting next week, they are doing a mock delivery to prepare for us so that they can have it planned out to have enough space for everyone. At a minimum there will be a NICU nurse and respiratory specialist per baby, the anesthesiologist, at least 2 doctors for me, a few nurses for me, and Allen. That is at least 19 people counting me and the babies! I suspect there will be a few looksie lous as well since quads don't happen too often around here.

So we keep trucking forward...

I get more uncomfortable everyday. I am full term size now and everything is harder to do. :P
