18w Anatomy Scan

We had a big appointment today! It took 2 1/2 hours for the technician to get good scans of all three babies. We were told it would take this long and as Rhea and I were leaving the doctor’s office, we were talking about how that was as long as going to see a movie, but we enjoyed the main characters in this movie much more than any other movie we have seen!

All three babies are very healthy. All of their organs, placentas, fluid, heartbeats, weights, were all perfect according to the doctor. In higher order multiples, the mother’s cervix is also measured as a baseline because premature labor is common in higher order multiple pregnancies. The doctor was very pleased with this measurement as well.

So onto the gender report…
As most of you know, at our 12 week appointment the doctor said she was 90% sure that all three babies were girls. She also said that our boys better pray between our last appointment and this one for boy parts to grow if they wanted a brother. Both boys obviously want God’s will for our family, but both admitted they’ve been praying for a brother too.
The very first part of the ultrasound was determining the genders. I wasn’t expecting the news that we received. Rhea was just as surprised.
Baby A is a girl, Baby C is a girl, but baby B?? That one is a BOY!
We are just so grateful and pleased that they are all healthy and growing well and my health is keeping up with everything.
Here are some of the details from today:
Heartbeats:
A 154
B 144
C 157

Weight/Percentiles
A 8 oz-40%
B 10 oz-84%
C 10oz-92%

Cervix
5 cm

And a few pictures. They were wiggly, but we did get some:
