Good News and Bad News

What do you want first?........I think its best to start with the good news.

We had a doctors appointment (MFM) yesterday and our babies are doing great!

Baby A weighed 1lb and had a heart rate of 149. The ultrasound tech commented on how long her legs were. Looks likes she will be taking after her Aunt Laney and Aunt Spencer.

Baby B was our smallest, weighting in at 15oz. She had a heart rate of 149 just like her sister. She was having some sort of early morning dance party. She is my wild child.

Baby C weighed 1lb also. He had a heart rate of 150. He made it pretty tough to get all his
measurements because he was curled up in a little ball under my right rib. Ouch!!!!

They took all the measurements for the hearts which completed my Anatomy Scan. It took 3 doctors visits to get all those babies measured. Now I can officially report that everything with the Anatomy scan went great and we are so thankful to have three healthily babies.

Ok, the not so good news..........

They put me on bed rest. My cervical measurement was much shorter than it was last week. Dr Scardo asked me if I thought I was having contractions and I told him "no, but I wasn't sure how to tell if I was". He put me on the monitor and sure enough, I was having contractions. This is normal for me to have a few contractions because my body thinks I'm much further along in this pregnancy than I actually am. However, the contractions were a little closer together than the Doctor would like to see.... So, he put me on a Medicine to slow the contractions and sent me home to my bed. I go back to the doctor Thursday to see if I can go to our baby showers in Columbia this weekend. I sure hope I can make it, but it doesn't matter, our top priority is what's best for these babies!

My Mom and Ben are doing a great job of taking care of me and I'm doing my best to take care of these 3 precious babies.

Pray these babies stay stay tucked inside my tummy for at least 10 more weeks....

****Will post pictures soon....


  1. Clearly Baby B is taking after you Luce... little and wild! haha... I hope bed rest isn't too bad! :(

  2. Thinking of you Momma Lucy! So glad the babies are all healthy little things. I will include some trashy celebrity magazines in my shower gift to keep you entertained for the next 10 weeks. Ryan and I send our love to you five! :)

  3. Awww one mini Lucy! How cute. I am so glad they are doing well. Hate that they had to put you on bed rest. But please let me know if I can bring you anything at all!!

  4. Hi Lucy! Thomas gave me your blog address since I was asking how you were doing. Glad to hear that all 3 babies are doing great and sorry to hear about the bed rest. I am def thinking and praying about you as I watch my little one (who is 7 weeks old now!) grow up. Time flies with them and your little ones will be here before you know it - just not too early :)

    Please email me if you have any questions - not that I can help with the triplet thing but can answer any questions about babies or items that you may or may not need. Take care and rest up!
