Twins- Third Trimester #1.

We are so very thankful that our twins are doing well and are healthy and strong! We had another ultrasound recently and all looks good. What a blessing and answer to prayer. Praise God for growing these little ones! The doctor said things are going well. Baby A was 3 lbs. 10 oz. (71st percentile), and Baby B was 3 lbs. 15 oz. (80th percentile). So these babies are getting big! Back pain is definitely the worst pregnancy symptom for me, but I'm thankful to not be on bedrest and to be able to do most normal things. The doctor commented on their good growth, but still said he was "strongly concerned" with a vaginal delivery and "highly recommended" a C section, which we told him we would definitely do. (This is because Baby B has what's called velamentous cord insertion, where the cord is attached to the membranes, rather than the placenta. They said they would have to watch Baby B's growth, which is going great thankfully, but the biggest concern is laboring, as this could cause rupturing, which would get dangerous for Baby B very quickly.) So, we will have a very different labor experience than Norah's, but glad to know this in advance and to be able to provide the healthiest option for the babies.

Can't wait to hold these sweet little loves!

24 weeks


25 weeks


26 weeks


27 weeks


28 weeks


29 weeks- My belly is definitely getting quite large! Most of my shirts that I wore with Norah are not covering enough, so I had to order some bigger sizes. Woah.


Here are pictures from the most recent ultrasound at 29 weeks 3 days. They were moving around a lot and covering their faces with their arms/legs, so it was harder to get good pictures this time.
