baby stats

First of all; Happy Friday to everyone! So glad the weekend is here!

This morning I went in for my growth ultrasound; because with twins you really have to monitor their growth and the difference between the two. My favorite part of each ultrasound is the very beginning when they find the heartbeats. Nothing is quite as reassuring as hearing the fast “thump-thump-thump-thump” of each of their little hearts. Especially when the sonographer says “normal heart rate for each of them”. That’s always good to hear.

Ok, on to the stats! If you’ll remember, last time (four weeks ago today) this is what they weighed:

Baby A: 2 pounds 15 ounces (73rd percentile)
Baby B: 2 pounds 11 ounces (46th percentile)

And now, four weeks later at 32 weeks 1 day:

Baby A: 4 pounds 11 ounces (66th percentile)
Baby B: 4 pounds 2 ounces (36th percentile)

Almost two pounds each in four weeks! Grow babies grow! Guys, do you realize I have 8 pounds 14 ounces of baby in me right now? Holy crap. That’s a lotta baby. That's more than most women are carrying when they're at 40 weeks. And I still have 6 weeks left if I go all the way to 38 weeks! Wow. Of course, these are all approximations so who knows.

This week the babies weigh as much as honeydew melons! It just blows my mind how much they’re growing. I’m making two little people! Crazy.

We also got some pictures of Baby A today. Baby B was facing away from the wand, so no pictures of her. :) We got one 3D one and one regular profile of Baby A.

I think she’s pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. :) I got all teary when I saw it, because she’s starting to look like a little person! I wish we could see Baby B too, but she’s really squished. I wish she’d turn and give herself a little more room. Even if she turned breech she’d have more space.

Oh… I just can’t believe I’m at 32 weeks! Getting so close it’s unbelievable. This weekend the list will definitely come out and we’ll make sure we start getting some more of those things crossed off. Because it’s gettin’ close to baby time, y’all!

Have a great weekend everyone!
