Well we already had a Perinatal apt scheduled so I was told to keep it. I hadn't had anymore bleeding so that was nice. I never knew going to the restroom would be so frightening. Lets just say I pray every time. One thing this pregnancy is doing is aging me from the sheer worry. The other triplet moms call it mommy bootcamp.

Well at this appointment we got the weight of the babies for the first time. Baby C (our girl) was the smallest which stays true to how she's been this whole pregnancy, she was 8 oz. Our Baby boys were 11 and 13 oz. They were doing very well. The doctor wasn't too worried about Baby girl since she's always been smaller but was told to drink even more water and eat even more protein. So I drink a protein shake everyday. The doctor did however say the water would help the blood flow and possibly the nutrients get to her. Since the boys are in 1 placenta they are taking alot of nutrients and we want to assure that she isn't getting shorted. You should see the amount of calories I am supposed to be eating. I eat when I'm not even hungry because it's for the babies and I have to.

The second thing we found out was that I have full placenta previa. Hence the pressure on my cervix and bleeding. Finally a reason! This doctor instructed me to tell my OB doc and also felt that I was done with work.
