27 Weeks, ____ to go??

Here I am at 27 weeks! Nothing much has changed except I am getting bigger and more cumbersome; definitely at the point where it's uncomfortable. I could have more than a month to go still! I don't get how my tummy can get even bigger. I want to make it as long as I can but man, I hope the time goes by fast! My doctor today brought up that we can start tentatively looking at C-section dates. We are planning around 32 weeks. Of course, we might not make it to 32 weeks for whatever reason, but we can at least put a C-section on the schedule in case we do.

Today and yesterday we had growth ultrasounds for the babies. They are all growing just like they should. Baby A was estimated at 2 pounds and 2 ounces, Baby B was was 2 pounds and 3 ounces, Baby C was the peanut at 1 pound and 13 ounces, and Baby D was at 2 pounds and 2 ounces. I don't love the fact Baby C is behind by 5 ounces, but she is still within 13% difference (over 20% difference they start to get concerned). The doctor is not concerned, so I'm not either. All of the babies have plenty of amniotic fluid and are crazy active. Hopefully tonight, Dan is going to scan some ultrasound pictures

On Sunday Leah, Mike, and Anna (I don't know how they got her past the check point!) came for a visit. It was fun to see all of them! Dan has been here quite a bit; he even brought me Chipotle for lunch on Sunday! That was probably the most satisfying burrito I've had. It's great to have a break from the hospital food. My parents were in town Sunday night until this morning (and they brought me Cossetta's for dinner!) Dan's parents were at the ultrasound this morning, which was fun. Odin is at our house right now- I wish I could see him! The hospital does allow pets to make visits, so we will work out a time for that soon.
Ugh, I even look tired in the pic below! Dan looks cute though! :)

That is all for now- hope you all are having a great week (and enjoying the snow if you are in the area!)
