God never ceases to amaze me.

Had my regular 4 week appointment with the perinatologist this morning - mostly a fetal growth ultrasound. These little girls - verified girls once again - are doing PERFECTLY. They are active (baby B is quite a bit more rowdy than baby A) and they look wonderful. They are measuring just 2oz different from each other, which means they are both growing at nearly identical rates. Baby B is slightly bigger at 1lb 15oz and baby A is weighing in at 1lb 13oz. The level of fluid surrounding them looks good as well. I had tears in my eyes, I am just so thankful for God continually showing me that He is in control and He has a perfect plan for these double surprises. The perinatologist came in and literally spent about 30 seconds with me - "everything looks wonderful, your risk of twin-to-twin transfusion is nearly gone at this point, though we'll still watch carefully for that, keep on doing well and I'll see you in another 4 weeks." Hallelujah! So I've moved on to every 2 weeks with my regular doctor (mostly to keep good tabs on my blood pressure and thinks like that) and will have another growth ultrasound in 4 weeks.

In other news, please welcome little James (RTS) and his family to my blogroll! Head on over and visit his blog and tell me he doesn't look just like our Caden!

I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to meet them, but not until it's time ;) Aunty Teri can be patient.

Tena said...

Oh I was certain they HAD names, up until last night when I panicked about one of the names, so now we're unsure again, LOL!

I am 26 weeks today Michelle!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Tena! I thought of you today when we gave James a haircut - with his shorter hair he looks so like Caden does in the photo at the top of your blog! :-)

Great news!! Crazy to think that your babies are already significantly bigger than Hope was when she was born!! That means they'll be a-ok!
