We're Gaining

Our appt. today went well. They checked on the measurements of both the bone structures and internal organs for each baby (all looks healthy). They also said that now that I am in the third trimester, the weight is much more of a guesstimate because space is becoming a premium. Baby A is still very low, and therefore hard to measure. Here are the estimates:
Baby A/girl: 2 pounds 5 ounces
Baby B/girl: 2 pounds 11 ounces
Baby C/boy: 2 pounds 10 ounces

We are thrilled that they continue to gain weight and everything appears to be chuggin’ along at a healthy rate! If you add up all three weights, it is roughly 7 pounds, 10 ounces – plus the weight of each sac, placenta… This weight is much more than Quin’s birth weight of 7 pounds 3 ounces. Jason and I cannot express how happy we are that my body has been able to hold on with this extra weight!

Thanks again for all of your positive thoughts! Enjoy the sun – it is streaming in my windows. Who could ask for more!

Dear Mrs. Sizemore,

We really miss you! Are you keeping busing in the hospital? Did you love our cards? We hope your babies are strong and healthy. We are learning about matter, fact families, and money touch points.

Love,
The First Graders

Awesome news! You are doing so great! I am still in awe of the technology that allows you to know all of this about those unborn babies.

Yay sun!

Keep up the good work and keep resting. your gonna need it when these beautiful babies arrive! I can't believe in 1 day you will have made it to 29 weeks! Go Joelee!!

Mrs. Sizemore,
We are so excited that things are going so well for you and the babies. We miss you here at Woodbridge. What do you think of all this snow and cold weather?
We are anxious for a Snow Day soon!
Good luck! We hope that Quin is doing well, also.
