25 Weeks

Last Friday, the ultrasound tech called me fat! Ok, he didn't actually say fat, but it was what he meant. He kept going on and on about how huge I look even for having twins. That's because I'm all belly! He's lucky I'm not easily offended. I am growing like crazy these days though.

Last week:
24 Weeks

Today:
25 Weeks

25 Weeks Front

Despite calling me fat, the tech was really good at his job. It helped that he was funny too, so he made us feel pretty comfortable. The doctor I saw this time was really great too. She explained everything in so much more detail than the other doctors. I wish I would've requested her when I made my next appointment!

When I started going to Maternal Fetal Medicine at the hospital for ultrasounds, they switched babies on me. Baby A used to be the one on my left and Baby B on my right, but the first time I went to them they switched their "names" because the one on my right was now the one closest to my cervix. They kept the same names this time, so from now on (I hope) Baby A is now the one on my right and Baby B is on my left.

Now that I've totally confused everyone...Baby A weighed 1lb. 10oz. and Baby B weighed 1lb. 9oz. Just a little under average for twins at this gestational age. They were also able to get a better shot of the placenta and are pretty confident the twins are fraternal. What really surprised us was when the tech switched wands and did a "4-D" ultrasound! We had no idea they'd be doing that, so it was a huge surprise to be able to get a better look at their little faces. Unfortunately, he forgot to label them "Baby A or B" so I have no idea which baby is which.


This is the only one properly labeled:

I hope you keyed that Ultrasound tech's car HA! I am glad everything is going well with the twins. You look so cute with your big belly!

I love the 3D pics! Will you get to have any more of those? When we look at Beckett's now we can't get over how much it looks like him when he was born, and we're amazed we couldn't obviously see it was a boy. =)

I hope so, Tali. I have to go to Maternal Fetal Medicine every 4 weeks for ultrasounds, so hopefully they'll do the 3D ones from now on.
