Hi, I had my 30wk scan yesterday and all 3 babies are fine and still around the 3 pound mark. They gave us a scare though as they couldnt see the third baby properly as its lodged so far into my side :eek and they thought there was a problem with its blood flow and said they would have to deliver next week :eek. We were brought back later in the day by the consultant who did a second scan herself and thank god she said that it is fine and not like they thought originally. I know they would be fine at 31wks but still I would rather get through the next 4wks now for them to get a little bigger and not be in special care unit as long. We also got a tour of the neo unit/special care where they will be for a while depending on when they are born. Omg so scary. Just as went into it the doctors came in with a tiny newborn and were pumping air into it. I had tears in my eyes but apparently baby was grand just getting a helping hand to breathe. At least it prepared us in what to expect. We also saw tiny 1lb and 2lb babies and they were fine so not as worried now mine are at 3lb which is great. Feeling really nervous now that its getting so close. I know they will more than likely be grand but i think Id be the same having them at 31 or 35wks-Id still be worried. Even dh says he doesnt know how he will react when he sees them itl be so scary but excitin at the same time. Im back up to CUMH on Thursday again and also next Monday so Ill be scanned one or twice a week from now on. The time will fly Id say. :wv

Bombchic- To be honest Im not that big although I feel huge. Everyone I meet keeps saying Im very neat for 3babies I was always a size 14 about but was so sick at start and in hospital all the time that I lost about 2 stone. Think this kinda stood to me. My back is so sore and my stomach aches so much now but thats only happened in about the last 2 weeks so just have to rest for next few now. Other than that Im doing great. :o)ll :o)ll Yeah I will have to write out my birth story and post as soon as possible. Cant wait now. Thanks for the good wishes. :thnk
