19 week ultrasound

... there is sure to be an enormous amount of dirt, wrestling, farting, burping and grass stains in this house of mine. That's right, I'm about to be totally outnumbered- TWO BABY BOYS!

And, because you all have been asking for it for WEEKS.... here they are in all of their glory. The belly feels huge to me, but I can only imagine what it will look/feel like in a few weeks. I'm sure I'll look back at this picture and laugh hysterically that I thought I was 'big'!!


Everything looked great on the ultrasound. Both babies are measuring a little ahead- this is always what I hope for considering twins have a tendency to come a little early. I think they were both measuring between 10-11oz each. They were crazy in there and moving a TON, so the tech had a little bit of a hard time getting images of the legs and feet, but from what she was able to measure, they looked perfect! I had a quick visit from old wandy at the end of my ultrasound appointment to check on my cervix. She didn't give me the measurement, but she did say that it looked great and was nice and long. The only slight concern at this point is Baby A's placenta is 1.7cm away from my cervix. The ideal is more than 2cm (I think cm was the measure?), so that could possibly pose an issue for a vaginal delivery, but as we all know (or did I forget publish that post?) I have ZERO expectations for the birth of these babies. 

I'll see the same doctor again in another 4 weeks for a quick appointment and another ultrasound (what will I do if I have a singleton after this twin pregnancy!?!?). After that, I'm not sure if we'll transfer to our delivering doctor (at a hospital with a nicu) for our 27/28 week appointment or if we'll see our local doctor one more time and then transfer. I was worried about this before, but this pregnancy (knock on wood) is progressing so easily and with nearly no complications so I feel completely confident sticking with our local doctor as long as things stay the same.

How exciting! Gotta love little boys!! Yay!! If you are comfortable staying with your regular doctor, then I would. They will more than likely make the decision as to when to switch if anything comes up.

How fun! Two boys, I bet they will be the best of friends. You will be slightly outnumbered, but I hear boys are pretty wonderful. :) And you look fantastic! I'm sure you will look back at that in a few short months and think that's nothin, but a big belly means healthy, growing BOYS!!

I am very biased having 3 boys myself, but congratulations!!!! This is great and little boys are just so great at showing the love back. :) They will be lots of fun but prepare for years of sports and building bricks and cars. :)

MaryMargaret said...

Two boys? Awesome! I know what you mean about feeling huge, though I'm sure you get comments that run the gamut- from you're so tiny for twins, to you must be ready to deliver! That's what's happening here, anyway. I'm so glad that they are looking perfect!
