22 Week Appointment and U/S

Today was the 22 week appointment and it was so great. We had our U/S appointment first and of course, the first thing on the tech's mind was whether or not Baby B was in fact a girl. She checked, and sure enough, there was a girly part growing nicely! So then the tech moved back to baby A to get his measurements and it seem that baby girl didn't like that so much. She wanted to be the center of attention and kept kicking her brother or punching him! It was amazing to see them flipping and moving all over while we were watching! I was a little worried that maybe the baby boy was hogging my uterus, when really it seems to be the opposite! The whole time she was moving and pushing into his little space!

I am still measuring 25 weeks, though the babies at 1 lb. each, it is definantly tighter in there! I have gained 6 pounds since the last appointment, so I think that is a total of 10 or so lbs.

We got some great pictures, and IM and I took a picture together with her hands on my tummy for the scrapbook. I can't wait to see the 3D pictures next week!!

20 Weeks

Whooop Whoop! We have reached the 20 week mark! Boy have things started to show.

I am almost as big as I was with my daughter at 8 months! My back is really hurting alot these days. I get stuck in certain positions, like for instance sitting on the couch, I cannot hardly get up on my own!

I feel very heavy in my lower tummy when I stand, obviously because the two babies and gravity weigh down. When I lie flat I can feel them moving around a lot, but I still cannot tell which one is doing most of the kicking!

My next U/S and DR appointment is May 29. Can't wait to see the babies then!

Poor IM has had bronchitis this whole past week and is trying to feel better. I hope she does soon. We want to get a 3D U/S and that has to be done soon since they are twins and they wll start to get cramped soon.

Keep in touch!

18 Weeks

Friday I was 18 weeks, and had an ultrasound and appointment. The ultrasound was a very thourough one where measurements and growth was tracked. T & S were allowed in during the entire time. Here are the big facts.

Baby A is measuring at 186 grams and 18 weeks, Baby B is measuring at 182 grams and 17 weeks 6 days. Felt weak movements the night before right as I was falling asleep, but for sure felt them while the U/S was going and I saw them! Baby A is measuring 18weeks, and Baby B is at 17 weeks 6 days, so they are VERY close and that is Fantastic! Baby A is very photogenic and moves a lot, Baby B chooses to hide mostly. Their heads are right next to each other, Baby B on top facing down on Baby A's face. Like they are telling secrets!

My belly and uterus is measuring at 25 weeks, and I have gained 8 lbs since last visit. My feet have been slightly swelling, as well as my hands. I haven't been craving much, well, I guess tuna sandwiches and pizza!

Hmm, I think that is all....

.... oh wait duh!

Baby A is a BOY
Baby B is a GIRL!!!!!
