24 Week Growth Scan




The growth scan went very well today. Both boys are growing right on target--weighing in at 1lb 10oz each, which puts them in the 54th percentile. The amniotic fluid levels are great and both boys are still boys! ;) Baby A was more than happy to show us his face, his boy parts, and the rest of his anatomy, but Baby B didn't really want to show us his face. He was lying face down for the scan, but we did manage to see his boy bits after a little maneuvering and by angling the probe the u/s tech managed to get a photo of his face.


K is doing awesome and all is well with her too! She really is a rock star! K's blood pressure was 110/60, which was a huge relief to me, and her weight gain is ideal for twins. Her belly is very big and absolutely beautiful! Suprisingly with that big belly K doesn't have one single stretch mark. K's twin baby belly is stunning!

So very glad for you to hear that all 3 of them are doing so well at this point. K wears pregnancy well and the boys seems to be loving their posh digs.

Here's to hoping that it has relieved some of your worries for a little while, at least.

I live for the doctor visits and the reassurance they provide!

Sorry I've been so poor at keeping up with my commenting lately! Just wanted to stop by to say that I'm so glad the boys are growing big and strong (and have lovely names, to boot!).

You and K are both glowing.

I hope you, J and your sweet Asha girl have a peaceful, comfy weekend!

Stopping by to say I am so happy for you and your hubby! I carried twins for a couple and delivered 3 weeks ago. Tell K to hang in there... the end got rocky for me; however it was worth it to see them healthy.

It's been awhile since I've been on here. So glad to hear that the boys are doing well and K is too. Hooray, hooray!

Have a great Thanksgiving. There is much to be thankful for this year. :)
