23 Weeks!

Hopefully at least 13 more to go, which would bring us to October 27th-ish. Even more hopefully, 15 to go, which would bring us to November 12th-ish. But only time will tell! And both of those options sound FAR too short!

This week the babies go into a wider range of length/weight because it can really start to vary from here on out, especially since they're twins. I won't have another growth check until August 14th, so all I have are these estimates. I'm guessing they are on the higher end of this range because two weeks ago they were already 13oz. But basically, we have grapefruit babies this week!

I had an appointment this morning to check for pre-term labor again (every two weeks. woo.) and luckily things are looking good. Even better than last time, in fact! What they do is measure cervical length. It gets shorter as the body readies for labor, so a long measurement is good. I was a 3.4cm this week, and two weeks ago I was 3.2, so it's good news all around. Luckily they also took a look at the babies, mainly to train someone on the equipment. I wasn't about to argue at some extra baby-watching time! I just can't get over their little noses!

Baby B
 Baby B reminds me of this meme guy this week because of how baby's fist is:

And here's Baby A:

They have both been super active lately, so much so that I can actually see my stomach jumping around. It's so cool. And weird. I can't help but think of the scene from "Alien" where the alien comes through the guy's stomach. I was going to put up a picture but really, it's too gruesome for me. But we all know what scene I mean.

When I have more time I'll do another post on our "Babymoon" we went on last week. So annoyed to be back at work today, but glad we took the time off to get away and relax!

  1. Have you ever seen an 11 inch grapefruit??? I had a hard time figuring out what to use this week because I don't think there is such a thing as an 11 inch grapefruit. Or Virginia just has really tiny produce...
