First of all… I will announce our boy’s names because if you are like me, when I read a blog & I’m waiting for important information, I also scroll to find the info, then I will read the rest of the blog… haha. Come on, you know you do it too
So, without further ado… The Blanton Boys…
Maverick Miller – Maverick was our ‘back up’ name with Harper. Chris LOVES this name. At first I thought it meant wild one, and was a little hesitant to name a boy “wild one.” But, then I came to find out that it meant someone who exhibits great independence in thought and action. I can deal with independence. Miller is my maiden name
Warner William – Warner means defender. It was also my grandmother’s (Mama Dot) maiden name, and it was my mom’s middle name. While I have several Williams on my side of the fam, we are specifically naming Warner William after Chris’ grandfather… a man who is a strong, hardworker, and loves the Lord.
Crews Christopher– Crews is my brother’s middle name, and my great grandmother’s maiden name. I love having a little boy named after my brother who has one of the biggest hearts in the world… not to mention a great sense of humor! And Christopher is after his daddy.
Another question we have received about names is how we are going to name them. We are waiting until they are born to look at them and see what name goes with what baby. Oh, and all of them will go by their first names…
Maverick, Warner, and Crews. My boys.
Today we had our big ultrasound. And let me say how good God is!!! One of my prayers was that they would be able to find EVERYTHING they needed on each baby. Guess what?!?! They did! I’m not surprised at all. Both ultrasound techs that worked on me said how rare that was with multiples. Usually they have to bring the mom in several times to get all they need.
All 3 weigh 13 oz., and are measuring 1-2 days ahead. Baby B is a bit longer than A & C. A & C are breech and B is head down. The hospital that we get our u/s at is a teaching hospital. Anyway, I LOVE it when we have a student in the room with us because we get everything explained to us. Having been a nursing student for 1 1/2 years, I know some terminology so I can kind of catch on to what they are saying. Brittany, the student was so cute and excited that she got to see triplets! Sarah, my tech, told me this was only her second time seeing “spontaneous” (no meds) triplets in her career. She was very encouraging saying that she thinks I will easily make it to 32 weeks because no fertility meds were involved, and God made my body to be able to carry these babies. How encouraging!!! I pray that the Lord will bless these boys, and get my body to 32-34 weeks.
Also, our nurse practitioner, Tracie, came in to check on me to see how I was doing after the weekend. She told me she specifically prayed for me and my uterus -haha. She said she prays for many of her patients… how special is that?! It just confirms to me that I am exactly where I should be.
Next visit is in 2 weeks. I will get another gestational diabetes test done. Mom will be here at this point, so she will get to go with me to this ultrasound… yay! Chris’ mom is here this week, and has been taking great care of us! We are loving it! Well, I’m going to go rest… it was a long but wonderful day!!!
Do you have any questions for me that you are wondering about me, Chris, Harper, the boys, my pregnancy???? Feel free to ask me anything! I’m an open book! If you want to leave it as anonymous, that’s fine. I will see how many questions I get and then possibly do a Q&A post.
