Last Friday we had our 24 week ultrasound with Maternal Fetal Medicine. I go to them every 4 weeks for a in-depth ultrasound and then an appointment with my regular OB, usually a week later. They work together to give me and the babies the very best care possible.
The babies are growing fantastically, like singletons, so that’s very good. The doctors also now think that since the babies’ measurements are almost identical, and since I have a set of identical twins already, that these twins are most likely identical as well.
Baby A is measuring 1lb 7oz with a heartbeat of 141. He is in vertex position (head down) and was facing my back so we couldn’t get a very good picture of his face or profile, this is the best one.
You can see his face, eye, arm and belly in this picture.
Baby B is breech with his head all the way up near the center of my ribcage (and boy can I feel him). He was measuring 1lb 8 oz and heartbeat of 145. The tech got several good pictures of him, since his positioning was so good. We could also see him practicing swallowing.
You can see his side profile and arm here.
The tech even got another 3d ultrasound of baby B. If you look closely you can see his forehead, nose and lips.
The babies are very active and I can feel them moving almost all the time and all over the place, way high and way low.
Mom took this picture of me the other day at 24 weeks. The babies are definitely out there.
DT, Mom, and I have been busy bees cleaning the office and making room for the babies. We sold 2 couches, recliner, desk, and various other items we don’t have the room for anymore, and not to mention got rid of tons of clutter and have a massive garage sale planned in a few weeks.
Here is a picture of mom painting the old office, now the big boys new room.
She had very eager helpers. Little H painting his initial on the wall.
One wall is green and the other orange.
H on the left and W on the right.
We also got the boys bunk beds. They are beyond excited about them. H mainly sleeps on the top bunk and W loves the bottom bunk.
I love the way the bright colors turned out and matched the bedding as well. We also found this rug at Target and I think it pulls everything together great.
The new babies’ room (old big boys’ room) is coming together nicely as well.
We (or mostly Mom) re-painted the room, trim, and touch-ups. We kept it the same blue as before.
DT also set up one crib already, it’s starting to get real here folks. If these babies come at the same time as the first set (35 weeks) we have just 10 weeks left, wow!
All we have left to do is to paint this dresser which doubles as a changing table.
We also left this sign on the wall, I think it fits nicely.
It’s hard to believe that in just a few short months I will be holding my new twin boys.
