very good appointmeWell I had a wonderful ultrasound yesterday.. We are still having one boy and one girl !!!! Our ultrasound took 1hour and 40 minutes and they still did not get everything they needed !! So when we go back for our 24 week visit we will have another ultrsound to finish.....

Baby A (boy) Again no doubting he is a "he" . he was measuring 19 weeks 5 days.. one day ahead and weighed 10 oz. Was hoping for a little more.. Might be able to explain the weight gain this month !!! ha no such luck./..... I loved watching when they were looking at his heart.. It is so neat to watch it work


Baby B ( girl) was measuring days behind ,but no big deal. Now she was our problem child. Would not move so the tech could what she needed !! She also weighed in at 10 ozs... We did not get alot of good shots of her because of the way she was laying .. But we did get to see her sucking her thumb.. My heart just melted !!!


Oh I can not forget the best news.. My SCH has gotten a lot smaller and I am no longer bleeding !!! That means no more pads !!! They checked my cervix and it was measuring at 4.5 which they said was really good. SO they do not have to measure it again at my 24 week appointment..... Now I just want to make it to 24 weeks... After that the babies (if needed) can be born and have a good chance.. Do not get me wrong I want to keep them inside for as long as possible..... gained 6 lbs last month.. I was so upset with myself.. only wanted to gain 4 oh well i guess.....


So all in all a very good appointment !!!Will try and post pictures later

What a great u/s!!!! I am so happy to hear the progress of your SCH! i stopped wearing pads a few weeks ago because I figure if I bleed again like I did pads won't do much lol. I will find out how mine is on April 7th.

Yay, congratulations!!!! I'm glad that both babies are doing well. It must have been so fun to see them both... I loved seeing all the anatomy scan stuff too, the heart chambers, the brain lobes, etc... you must be so happy.

Don't beat yourself up over 6 lbs instead of 4 lbs lol... that's no big deal hun!!! It sounds like you're doing great!!!!! SCH going away and all, too!

So glad both babies are doing so well. Glad they are both still a boy and a girl. Glad your SCH is smaller and things are going to great.

Well after awhile I got uncomfortable , They had me rolling from side to side and then back to my back. .She was pushing kinda hard too.. .but Other than that I loved it !!!

Sam-- Not even close to picking out names.. Every name I give dh he crosses off.. Naming one baby is hard but two ..THis might take us forever !!!!


On a side note. I did pass a clot today and I called the doc.. They said since my clot showed that it was getting smaller .That maybe I was just in the process of passing it or when they checked my cervix that maybe the disturbed it a little.. No cramping or anything and I am still feeling the babies flutter around .So for now all is good !
