Sour Patch Kids, 8w3d

Here again with more photos of the babes. This week we are calling them either gummy bears or sour patch kids because thats exactly what they look like haha. Round head, round bottom, and little tiny arms that they frantically fling back and forth. Brandon was FINALLY at this ultrasound appointment with me. He usually has a meeting or a jump during them and can never come. He has only been to one and it was the first one where we heard the faint little baby heartbeats. This week they were SO LOUD and booming as soon as they put the doppler on their hearts! Bran's reaction was hysterical. He was just sitting there and then got really wide-eyed and goes OH SH*T! I think he scared Dori (our nurse).

But, by now Dori is PREEETTTYYY used to us. and I know--it takes a while to get used to us.

So here they are! We finally got a good plan on how to label which one...The closest one to my cervix is Baby A. And then we go in a counterclockwise pattern.

Baby A-- FHR: 167bpm, Crown-rump length:  1.94cm (Grew almost an entire cm in one week!!!)

Baby B-- FHR: 164 bpm, Crown-rump length: 1.79cm (I know--i screwed up and wrote bpm instead of cm); Grew .50cm!

Baby C (our problem child--never wants to show us it's full body shot) FHR: 169bpm, Crown-rump length: 1.95cm (grew .80cm!)

Baby's A and C are measuring 8w4d (2 days ahead) and Baby B is our smallest peanut by all measurements and is measuring 8w2d (2 days behind). But it's all perfect [technically] because they give them growin' room of +/- 3days.

This is probably the last time we will get All Three in one photo! as you can see--we only got a shot of Baby A's Butt in this one.

And now (by popular demand), Here is my first baby belly shot.

I started the pregnancy in early August at 124lbs. Today I weigh 128.2lbs.

Apparently I am not gaining enough weight. By the end of this pregnancy I should have gained between 60-70lbs (uuuggghhh-vom). So, I need to start packing on the protein. Comment with good recipes if you've got em! Because we all know I am no Master Chef!
