Playdate at the Doctor's
We had a great doctor's visit yesterday. It was basically a three hour session of watching the babies have playtime. We were able to see fingers, toes, vertebrae, ribs, ears, kidneys, bladders, and all four chambers of their hearts. It was the most amazing thing we have ever seen! They all weigh four ounces right now, which means we have a full pound of babies. Baby B kept trying to push its head into all the ultrasounds. I think we have our show-off! Baby D was taking a beating from all the other babies. It was kicked or punched at least once by each of the other three babies. We can't wait to see what happens next time!
Teri has gained five pounds the last week and a half, which made the doctor happy. However, she did increase Teri's food intake yet again. Teri has also been prescribed another medication which brings our pill count up to forty-six per day! Teri's home uterine monitor should be here within the next week and a half. The doctor also told us the best way to make it to thirty weeks and beyond is to stay in bed as much as possible. Even though she is doing very well, we are cutting her activity level to a minimum. We are about twelve hours into bed rest, and she hates it already. Our doctor has been very proactive, and I have to say that really makes me happy. Our next doctor's visit is in three weeks.
