Maybe it's because he has his own space on top of his brothers, who knows, but baby C has been the most cooperative in letting us get good pictures and letting us see him when we want to. He also doesn't get as involved in the brotherly kicking matches going on nowadays. Again, that may be because he has more space to himself. Here are a couple 3-d pictures of baby C at exactly 21 weeks, and an approximate weight of 15 ounces.
The periontolgist took lots of time with us and really explained a lot and gave us more information about the babies than we've gotten the entire 20 weeks before. He did confirm that they are all indeed boys. We've seen this and been told 10 times they are all boys but we just can't believe that out of 4 children we aren't going to have a girl. Wade's in heaven. He's trying to figure out how we can put them in 3 different high schools so that they can all be starting quarterbacks on the varsity team.
As far as their development, they are right on track. They were 14oz, 14oz, and 15 oz. All measuring 21 weeks or greater and they are all very close in size and weight which is a very good sign. They've completed much of their development phase and now they are in the growing phase. I have to try to get these boys beefed up so they can come home soon after they're born.
Apparently my iron is low which is causing me to be even more tired than I would be normally just carrying 3 babies, so I've got to eat lots of iron rich foods to get that up to help with fatigue. Other than that and the pressure of three babies kicking and playing in there, I'm doing good. They should all be over a pound now, so at only 3 pounds of baby and we need a lot more than that for them to be born healthy. So I'll save all my complaining until they're a total of 9 pounds or more, then I'll tell you all how I really feel! As I side note, the doctor did say that having been stretched out with Taylor (8 lbs 10 oz) is a very good thing.
I go back to the specialist on the 27th of this month, so hopefully we'll get more good news from him. If nothing else we get to see some really cool pictures of the boys in their world. = )
