Was it or wasn't it a weenie?

This is the picture I was talking about when I refer to the Brady Bunch in the blog entry...
Baby A is on the bottom looking up,
Baby B is top left and is lying perpendicular to the other two, which is why you only really see his head and little hands,
and Baby C is top right looking down.

Ok, sorry Brian and I couldn't help ourselves. Coming up with the title for this blog entry was difficult as there were so many possibilities! So here's the latest dish...Yes, I know we only had an ultrasound 4 days ago, but when you're pregnant with multiples you get the luxury of having everyone else wanting to constantly see and check on your babies too! So here we are 4 days later with MORE pictures! Now, you know that saying, "it's the little things in life that make us happy?" Well, here's my little "thing" for the day. I know, you're thinking it has something to do with my 3 tiny babies, but nope. (well, in a roundabout way, I guess it does). I got to go to a new doctor today and there was a new ultrasound tech and there was a BELLY ULTRASOUND MACHINE! Did you hear that?? For the first time in almost 3 years, I got a belly ultrasound!! (In the past few years, I've probably had 100 ultrasounds, ALL of which were done transvaginally. ) Those who have had one of those, you know what I'm talking about. You never forget your reaction when you see that magic "wand" the first time and ask yourself, "they're putting that WHERE?!" But you lose your modesty after about the 30th time, and at the 85th time, you wonder why you even bother with the paper "sheet" to cover up with...So anyway, as Brian and I walk into this dimly lit room, (not expecting to have an ultrasound today, by the way) the tech says, "Well, before you meet with the doctor, we're going to do an ultrasound." Ok! So we were wrong! So as I'm preparing to undress from the waist down as I always do, I quickly do a scan of the equipment...hmm....no wand. "So, what kind of ultrasounds do we do here?" I ask coyly. "Just unbutton your pants and pull the top down of your pants down just a little so we can see you belly" she says. YES!!! I was So excited! I told you, it's the little things that make me happy.
But, just when I thought things couldn't get any better, I was wrong. The babies... When you look at your babies from the top view, it's a WHOLE different experience! Let me put it this way, you know the opening scene of the Brady Bunch? Where the entire family is in their own "box" and they're looking up and down and side to side at each other? Well, that's what it looked like! You could easily see all three sacs at the same time, and all three babies in each of their sacs. And they were waving and kicking and turning and jumping the entire time! Imagine bunk beds, if you will. Baby A is on the Bottom Bunk and Babies B and C are both on the top bunk. I swear they were talking to each other! They are the cutest little munchkins I have ever seen. They all measured the perfect size. A is a tiny bit bigger, but all three babies looked great and healthy at this point. "I see nothing about these babies that causes any red flags", the tech said. :) Smile. And no, Brian and I are no professionals at this by any means, but as the appt. ended, we got into the car and he looked at me and said, "I think I saw a weenie." "Oh my gosh!! I totally thought I saw a weenie too!" I said...So the question for the day is, "was it or wasn't it a weenie?" I guess we'll have to wait and see....I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do....till next time. :)
