Hello! We had our "25 week" OB appointment today. We are 25 weeks 2 days today. I am happy to report that all is well! The babies are growing like mad, and have no intention of leaving their mommy sanctuary any time soon!
Here are the latest stats on the girls:
Olivia - aka Baby A - 1 lb 14 oz - measuring 2 days ahead (25w4d)
Brianna - aka Baby B - 2 lbs 0 oz - measuring 5 days ahead (26w0d)
They took some pictures of the babies, but all but one of them stink! The girls (as customary) were happy to show off their lady parts, but not really a whole lot else! We did get one good 3D profile pic of Brianna (where you can see her adorable little nose in 3D), but Si hasn't had a chance to scan it in yet, so I can't post it yet.
I do have a couple of belly pics to share with you (of course). These were taken tonight =).
What else? Well, unfortunately I think that maybe my morning sickness is starting to return! I've had a good 8 weeks of eating whatever I want, and now I am starting to be nauseous again. . .especially in the afternoons and evenings. I talked to the OB about it today, and he said that this isn't unusual. It's all of the hormones and such being produced with the twins. This may continue until the babies are delivered. Oye!
And we asked him again about travel to the two weddings in September, and he said I am absolutely NOT allowed to fly at 31 weeks - it's too risky. So unfortunately I won't be able to attend Nick's shower in Annapolis=(. Si can still go though. And as for Josh and Sylvia's wedding the following weekend - so far I am cool to ride/drive in the car - no issue! YAY!
Our next OB appointment is in 3 weeks. I still have to call and set it up. They will be doing the Glucose Challenge Test (one hour glucose test) at that visit, and will also be doing my second round of blood work (to check for anemia among other things), and I will also get my next rhogam shot (because I am Rh-). I thought after the visit today that I would be going to 2 week visits, but I guess not! We will be going to two week visits after the next visit though =).
Oh! And we have a baby shower this weekend on Saturday! I'm pumped! One of my bestest friends Lisa and my sister in-law Bridget are throwing the shower for me and the babies - I can't wait to see what they've come up with!! We have had 44 people RSVP that they were coming - holy big shower Batman!! It's going to be awesome!!! I can't wait to see everyone!!
Okay, that's all for now! Have a great rest of your week!!
