12 Week Scan

Words cannot describe how ecstatic I feel at the moment. Its funny, I didn't realise how nervous I was until the sonographer said they all looked fine, with hearts beating. I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time. Spending over an hour watching my babies on the screen was magical. Amazing.

They were kicking around, pushing hands through sacs towards each others faces and constantly rolling over. Baby A was not very cooperative, Baby B was in a great position 'I'm the king of the castle', lying on top of its siblings, and Baby C was in a good position all except for its head, which Baby B was squashing!
They are all measuring ahead of my dates, which is obviously due to all that food I've been eating! And the protein shakes. Today I was 12 weeks 5 days and they all measured 13 weeks 1 day.

The only shot I have of all 3, lying straight up and down, so these are their heads A, B and C left to right
 This is Baby A, lying facing away from the screen and with its legs tucked into its tummy
 Here's Baby B lying on top of Baby A. Baby B is facing the screen.
 And Baby C, up close and personal, just before Baby B squished its head again!
Measurements are as follows:
Baby A - 158bpm heart rate and 6.92cm in length
Baby B - 161bmp heart rate and 7.09cm in length
Baby C - 155bpm heart rate and 6.99cm in length

And lastly, here are my first trimester time line shots. 6.4, 8, 10, 11.2 and 12.2 weeks from left to right.
It sure is growing nicely!!

  1. How exciting!!! The babies, and you, look amazing! I'm so glad they are growing ahead of schedule and you are doing so great. How do you get your weekly pictures all lined up like that? I want to steal that idea! :)
