24 week appt.

Well - we are back to our "everything's perfect" appointments and I could not be happier about that! Babies are lookin good, little girl has decided to turn back around to the breech position - quite the little mover and shaker! My cervix is still nice and long at 47 - so no worries there! I'm up to 16 pounds and getting rounder and rounder everyday - I just hope the weight remains in the belly region and doesn't start drifting elsewhere if you know what I mean! I think they are going to measure the babies next week or the week after - and I will be very interested to see where they're at. The sono tech said that they don't really grow much during this part of the pregnancy - but they are about to have some major growth spurts! According to the books - the babies are about 11ish inches (head to toe) each and weigh about a pound and a half each - like little baby dolls :) I keep trying to see if Jason can feel them move around and kick - but so far we haven't had much luck - I wonder when he'll be able to feel them???

The nursery is coming along - a special thanks to our dear friends KC and Ryan who hooked us up with bags of clothes for baby boy - I think this kid has something new to wear everyday for his first 0-3 months of life! But now our little girl's side of the closet looks awfully bare - guess I need to do some shopping!

In other news, all my teacher friends are reporting to summer conference today - I must say it feels a little weird not being there - as well as resisting the urge to buy cute classroom stuff in the dollar bins at Target. You know you're a teacher when you are drawn to fun multi-colored pens, post it notes, and stickers! But, hopefully I will get to get my fix and sub the first few months of school!

Here are some pics from today's sono - they're not all that good b/c we had the not great sono tech (which is pretty much anyone except Colleen) - but at least we got some!

Baby B is on top of Baby A and they are looking at each other

Maybe next time we'll have Colleen and she will give us some more 3d images!

  1. Yay! I'm glad everything is back to "perfect." That's awesome news! We'll have several more bags of clothes for you before the babies get here.

    I bet Jason will be able to feel them soon. Ryan felt "flutters" for quite a few weeks before he finally felt actual movement. I think it was around 26-27 weeks.

    It's hard to believe you're nearing the end of your 2nd trimester!! I hope you get Colleen next time so we can all see more 3D images of the sweet babies.
