Hey hey! Two Fridays ago I had my 18week anatomy ultrasound. My mom was awesome and drove up to help us out for the weekend and was able to come see the babies on the ultrasound! This was the big one where they spend as long as they need to scan each baby's anatomy checking to make sure everything's in its proper place and everything looks normal.
They also confirm Gender!
So without further ado, I introduce to you our Baby Boy and two Baby Girls!
John Henry Garay, "Jack"
weighs about 8oz. and is 100th percentile for measurements and weight!
Clara Jane Garay
weighs about 7oz. and is 94th percentile for weight and measurements!
Olivia Kathleen Garay
weighs about 7oz. and is 97th percentile for measurements and weight.
(I have no idea what "girts" are referring to in baby B's photo...I think the US tech was tired by the end of this.)
So, there we have it! Tomorrow I will be 19 weeks! Can't believe time is going so fast! Just hoping I still have a good 15 or more weeks to go before we meet this trio. I have officially made it over the 130lb mark!!! (131.7lbs) And my fundal height is measuring about 30 weeks. Which is kind of crazy.
All the aches and pains of the third trimester for a singleton pregnancy have hit me and I'm not yet halfway through the second. My mom got me an awesome "Belly Bandit" that helps support my back, especially while I am at work. I'm still working Monday-Friday, 8 hours a day. and I FINALLY caved and bought one of those crazy pregnancy pillows. It's called a "Snoogle" --photo below.
Doesn't she look just OH SO happy to be snuggled up with this ridiculously named pillow?? I thought so too. So, I got one.
As far as work goes, I am just taking it week by week. I have an ultrasound every two weeks to check on the babies and my Doctor is just going to reevaluate how I'm feeling and how much I can still manage to do. We aren't thinking I'll be able to keep up the 8hr days much past the new year.
And more exciting news...The Garay's are coming for Thanksgiving (THANK GOD) to help Brandon and me cook and check out the new house!! We are so lucky to have both of our parents so close.
And.....here are some updated "belly shots" for ya'll, by popular demand.
18 weeks, 6days
37 inches around! (no stretch marks yet....)
I'm telling you....every single week I go into work and everyone tells me how much bigger I look! I think this week I'll have to switch to medium scrub tops. Womp Womp. Also-I've never had an "outie" in my life and I think it looks kind of gross. haha oh well. Whatever needs to happen for these cuties to come out happy and healthy.
Until next time! I'll start updating about every two weeks after each appointment!
