Growth Sonogram

Here were our results from the growth sonogram today:

A (boy) = 2lbs 14 oz (gained 10 oz in 2 weeks)

B (girl) = 2lbs 8 oz (gained 9 oz in 2 weeks)

C (girl) = 2lbs 4 oz (gained 4 oz in 2 weeks)

D (girl) = 1lbs 6 oz (gained 2 oz in 2 weeks)

Dr. Kehl vistited after and is happy with the progress. All babies are growing and heart and fluid look good. We would like to see baby D grow more, but Dr. Kehl didn't express any concern with her. Tomorrow is 28 weeks!!!

Tiff looks great and is doing well!

Hi Tiff! Are you getting better? Do you still have 3 girls and 1 boy? My Aunt says you do..but I still want to ask! I've been praying for you at night and in Sunday School! I hope I get to see your babies someday! If you need help with the babies you can call me...I don't like changing diapers though!

Love Regan Marie Smith and Aunt Kori

I now have my entire office asking me how you are doing. We're wishing you the best from Houston and praying for all 6 of you daily. Thank you for the updates and you will be on our minds even more as you get closer to bringing 4 miracles into the world…….. But keep them in your belly as long as you can!!

Love, Kelsey & Kyle Maxwell

Glad to hear that everything is going well. Still praying for a little more time for the babies to be 'incubated' to give baby D a little more growth time!!! Hope all continues to go well.

It is so great that all the babies are gaining some weight. Hopefully baby D will be able to gain a lot more before their arrival. Tiff - if you've checked out Suz's blog ( that I sent you, you'll see that your babies are about the same size as her four were at 30 weeks (and you are two weeks ahead of her) - they were born one day after and are doing great so that is awesome news!! Still praying for you...

Congrats on all the babies gaining. I have faith that little miss D will surprise everyone and gain lots. She will be a strong girl don't worry. I was glad to hear that things settled down the other night. I saw your mom Thurs night in Charleston and she filled me in on how you were doing because I hadn't been to work for a few days. And then I got the call from work Friday night that said your little miracles were potentially coming so I made sure to stop what I was doing and say a little prayer and it looks like everyone's prayers worked. Way to go!! Hope things continue to go well... we are all rooting for ya!!! :)

Christina said...

Praise God! 28 weeks!!! Can you even believe you're here? I remember waaaaay back in September sitting in stunned amazement at Kobe when we found out about these 4 sweet babies, and as we stared at your sonogram pictures in absolute awe it seemed like February and 28 weeks would be forever away. Now it's here. You made it. I'm so proud of you Tiff for working so hard to carry these babies as long as you have. I think it's comforting as we pray to remember that God continues to have His hand on these babies. He knew since that first day that you would reach 28 weeks and he knows the exact date and moment of their birth. Everything that surprises us or even worries us never catches God off guard! It's all a part of his plan. And I trust that he is working out every last detail for your good and for the good of these precious babies.

We're praying for you here everyday. We love you both!

Patrick, Christina, Henry and William
