Had my 16 week appointment today. I gained just under 2lbs since my last appointment, so the doc was happy with that since I hadn't gained. 2 weeks ago at my last appointment when I was 14w I was measuring 20 weeks....now I am measuring a whopping 25 weeks!! She commented that I'm going to get huge. haha. Yea, I figured. The babies are pretty much nearing my ribs now...eek. Well, at least they hang out low, so far. Baby A's heartrate was about 159 and Baby B was 130s because I think it was sleeping.

I got my requisition for my big ultrasound and just called to set it up. It's July 30th at 1pm with the maternal fetal center. The next day I have my midwife appointment. I was hoping I'd get to do the ultrasound earlier than that...darn it. That'll be fun trying to get someone to watch the kids two days in a row.... Well, at least the MFM docs tell you what they see on the ultrasounds, unlike going to a regular tech where they won't tell you anything and you have to wait for your doctor to get the report.

So...all in all...good appointment.

Sounds look a good appointment. I am right with you at 16 weeks 4 days. Not sure how big I am measuring though.... how did they tell you that? The size of your uterus? My dr just told me my uterus was at the bottom of my belly button and that was perfect. So not sure if that is 16 weeks or what. Where is yours? If you don't mind me asking.

At 14w mine was at my belly button, which they said was 20w. Now mine's above it, almost to my ribs. They measure fundal height...the height of your uterus...so they feel where the top is and take a measuring tape and measure from top of pubic bone to top of uterus. I never had it done til about 20 weeks with my others, but guess they start earlier with twins for the fun of it. She said my uterus is more accommodating to twins because I've been pregnant a few times before, so it's already been stretched.

Will do. I always feel strange posting pregnancy updates there though because I don't want it to bother anyone, ya know? I do read the posts there still though, and occasionally respond if its something I'm qualified to respond to.
