Okay I know I promised to update last weekend after the ultrasound.. But I think by now we all know and expect me to be late.. ha!!
24w 6days today.. Exactly 3months (May 23 to Aug 23) until 38 weeks!! Woohoo :)
Soo I know you are all wondering how the ultrasound went last week.
The babies are doing wonderfully.. Baby Boy was napping - as usual for him. I swear this boy is going to never sleep again when he comes out (his poor Momma!!). The bigger surprise was that Baby Girl was actually cooperating nicely :) She wasn't her normal feisty self - definitely more active than her brother but quite a bit more calm !
Baby Boy was measuring 1 day ahead (24wks) and weighed in at a whopping 1lb 8oz! Look at him grow! In the past he was always 2 days behind so he gained 3 days.. He was in the 54% for singletons!
Baby Girl was measuring 2 days behind (23w 4d) and weighed in at 1lb 7oz !! She's letting her brother become her big brother finally :)
The dr was very pleased with both their weights! In fact they are bigger than some singletons in my pregnancy group who are the exact same gestation! I guess no one informed these guys that they are twins! :) My Dr is still saying that she'll be happy to make it to 34 weeks and thinks they should be 4-5lbs each by then if they keep up with their growth. I'm still hoping for 37-38weeks.
I'm giggling inside looking at the tickers below saying that the twins are roughly 1 1/2 lbs each now when they were that size LAST week.. ha! Monster Twins are at it again ! :)
I don't go back to the OB until June 13 for my 28week labs.. The lovely glucose test.. Ick.. Then every 2 weeks with growth ultrasounds! :) I love getting to see the little monsters , especially when we catch such adorable pictures of them !! Ohh and we got to see them practicing swallowing :) Adorable !
Other than that, not a lot to update. The hormones have been getting to me lately and I'm a big blubbering mess.. ha. Preggo brain has struck. I walked into the Dollar store the other day and immediately forgot why I had went in.. Naturally I almost burst into tears (dang hormones) because I couldn't remember what it was.. lol. Babies are sucking my brain cells away :)
