Berry Berry Busy


Our twin girls arrived a little early at 33 weeks and 4 days. They're getting bigger day by day since they blessed us with their arrival. This blog is to document their amazing feats since we know they'll grow up entirely too fast.

20 weeks and 3 days Drs. appt

Today was the 'big scan'. It was so amazing. Seeing not only the girl's hearts beat, but seeing the four chambers of each of their hearts beating beautifully. The technician measured around their little noggins and their tummies. She measured the length of their legs and arms. We got to see their adorable little feet as well as their kidneys and stomachs. The technician even surprised us with a 4d picture of each of them. They're just beautiful. They've apparently already started sucking on their thumbs and playing footsie with one another. Baby A was especially active starting out head down, kicking her sister in the head, and then flipping over so that they were both feet down.

Baby A had a heart beat of 148 and was 14 oz and baby B had a heart beat of 152 and was 13 oz. Needless to say they are two very healthy girls.

After the Dr. reviewed our scans he came into the patient room saying that really he couldn't be happier with their development and progression. He also said that with the way my body is adapting to the pregnancy he was really optimistic about us being able to make it to term and come home with two health 6 or 7 pound little girls. My Dr. seems has started referring to my support system as a 'cervix of steel'. He gets a big grin on his face every time he says it. Even though it's silly, part of it makes me feel a little proud. It's like I was made to bring them safely into this world, even though I've got to admit sounds a little scary from the view point of my elastic belly. Really though, I'd do anything to make life easier for our little girls.

Here are some of the pictures from today's visit:
