Update from the OB Appointment

As usual, Baby A (or Baby 1, depending on the doctor) was not cooperating today and wouldn't let us get a good heart rate on her. The doctor said she's doing just fine though. Baby B's heart rate was in the high 140s (perfect). My belly/uterus measured a whopping 28 cm! The doctor was very happy with my weight gain and measurements, and she said that we're right on schedule.

For those of you who don't know, Joe and I have decided to do a c-section. We are scheduled for June 29, 2009 at 11:30 AM. Of course, the twins will dictate whether we make it to the scheduled date or not. Our next appointments are on April 13th (Maternal Fetal Medicine) and April 17th (OB). Stay tuned...

24 Weeks

We had an ultrasound at Maternal Fetal Medicine on March 13th and everything looked perfect.  The girls each weighed 1 lb 4 oz.  Unfortunately, they were both facing my back, so we didn't get any good pictures.  We'll have to wait another month to see the girls again. 

Both girls are moving around a lot at this point.  Not only can I feel them kicking and punching, but I can see them moving around in my belly.  It's weird.  Joe can feel them kick now, too.  He loves it!  I'm not shy about letting people feel them, so if you're interested, just say the word.  

I have an appointment with my OB tomorrow to check on my weight gain and to have my belly measured.  Speaking of belly...

I had to take these pictures myself, so they're not the best.  Joe will take some better ones next week.  I should be getting pretty big from here on out.  The girls are supposed to grow about a half a pound a week from now until the end.  I don't even want to think about how big I'm going to be.  Does anyone have a spare tent that I'll be able to borrow?  Perhaps a tarp with a neck hole?  Anyone?
