Today we had our 24 week appointment with our perinatologist. The ultrasound tech did an extensive checkup on the babies genitals this time. Everything looked great! We were able to hear the heartbeats and see them move all over the screen for a good hour. I found out the boy is the one who has been kicking me in my upper stomach these past few weeks. He was head down and our baby girl was head up. It was cute because when the tech did some 3D pictures, the girl's butt was smashed up against her baby brother's head. Measurement wise, they both are about a half an inch bigger than a dollar bill. Baby Boy weighs 1 lb 8 oz and Baby Girl weighs 1 lb 3 oz. They were both pretty calm during the appointment and the girl was a little camera shy at first. Once we left they started kicking me again!
The top picture is of Baby Boy. He wasn't really cooperating with us but we managed to get a view of his squished face.
Baby Girl finally turned so we got a better picture of her this time! Yup, she has my nose!
I kind of dread taking pictures now because I know I am getting bigger everywhere. I've apparently gained 20 lbs so far in this pregnancy. I feel great other than getting up every night to go to the bathroom and not being able to get back to sleep that easy. Hence the bags under the eyes. I've also been feeling a little more pressure/soreness in my lower half but something has to support these babies! Oh and food wise...haha don't ask how many slices of pizza I had last night... :)
We are still so excited to meet our babies! If I make it to 37 weeks, then I only have 13 more weeks left! This pregnancy has sure gone by fast!
