{Quad Squad} 21.5 Week Update

Today's anatomy scan appointment was the best one of the bunch so far! It all went very smoothly and they took measurements and weighed each baby. They all measured in the 40-50 percentile range for average growth and development at this stage—a great percentage that we'll happily take with quadruplets!—and they had all gained half a pound or more.

Current weights at 21.5 weeks:
Baby A - 15 oz.
Baby B - 14 oz.
Baby C (boy) - 1 lb. 2 oz.
Baby D - 15 oz.

As you can see, Little Man has to outdo his sisters already! We are very pleased with their current weights and development and look forward to getting another update three weeks from now. Until then, I'll try to dutifully down my two Ensure every day (blech!) and keep eating as much as I can possibly squeeze in. Meals and frequent snacks are all still tricky since I often still feel so full or just have so much pressure and stretching in my stomach.

The even better news is that my cervix is still completely closed—meaning my body is showing no indications of trying to force labor on itself, basically—and even lengthened from 4.4 cm to just over 5 cm. Granted, this can so quickly change and go in reverse but I'll take longer versus shorter any day!

And for the highlight of this post, we got some great 4D photos—including some beautiful little profile shots of a couple of the babies that would cooperate and face the right way. Love it! They are little people in there already. :)









Stay tuned for my 22 week photo, new belly pics and a 22 week update later this week!
