Cool Pic & General Update
Well, I confess. I am not very good at this blogging thing. But I think I have some good excuses... Anyway, I thought I'd post a few updates.
This is an illustration of a twin pregnancy at 36 weeks. I will be 34 weeks tomorrow (which is a milestone for me! Yay!) Our girls are more side by side though instead of front and back. My goals are 1. to make it to at least 36 weeks (April 24th) and 2. for each baby to weigh at least 6 lbs. At our last ultrasound (33 weeks), the estimated weights were 4lb1oz (Baby A) and 4lb4oz (Baby B). And at this time, babies gain about a 1/2 - 1 lb. a week.
We have learned a LOT about Twins, I must say. "Baby A" is actually a medical term that is used to identify the baby that is "presenting" (i.e. the one that's closest to the exit.) In our case Baby A is on my right side and Baby B is on the left. For the next post I will officially announce the REAL names of the girls and tell how they came about.
