October 3rd- 24 weeks!

Saturday, October 3, 2009 7:29 AM by Serena-Mom of 4 boys

Well today is the first big milestone, 24 weeks. At this time the pregnancy is considered viable and the babies would have a chance of survival if born after this date. This is of course still very soon so we are looking forward to the next milestone of 28 weeks. We got to see all the babies yesterday and get their measurements. Baby A is weighing in at 1 lb 5 oz, Baby B is 1 lb 3 oz, and Baby C is 1 lb 5 oz. These measurements are all in line with the weight of a singleton baby so this is great news. They did mention that Baby B is a little behind Baby A, it's identical, so we will look at them to make sure this isn't the start of a pattern in 2 weeks. This is somewhat worrisome because it could be the beginning stages of TTS-Twin Transfer Syndrome. The doctor also said it could be nothing so we are praying for nothing and trying not to worry too much about it. On a good note Baby C has caught up weight wise, which is awesome because he or she has always been smaller than his or her brothers.

Well on a funny note, we still don't know what Baby C is. They couldn't get a good look between his/her legs and since it's pretty squished in their Baby C can't really open them. So we may not know what Baby C is until they're born. We are fine with this and I guess will have to have both a girl and boy name ready for Baby C. Although we have many grandma's dying to buy pink they will have to refrain until the babies are born and think green and yellow. Either way healthy babies is what's important and if it's all boys then I guess I am a mama to little boys and am raising 4 men to be. Lil Vic has come out great so far so we must be doing something right. The pictures attached are all of Baby C. I guess they were concentrating so much on Baby C that they only ended up printing us pics of this baby.
