NT Scan

My NT Scan was last week and it went great. First off, the important part...the NT measurements for the twins were 1.8 and 1.4. So as long as the bloodwork comes back ok we seem to have a low risk of any abnormalities. I will go again next month for another bloodwork check to be sure there is no heightened risk. **Fingers crossed**

The scan lasted about an hour and I got a great look at the two babies. They are lying on top of each other - head to head - so it's like they're in bunk beds. Very cute :) The baby on top (baby B) was moving around so much and the bottom baby (baby A) was a lot calmer...we'll see if that holds true after they're born. LOL.

The u/s tech also turned on the 3D probe for a few minutes and I got a great picture of baby B's body and awesome shot of baby A's face. It's amazing to think that even with them being sooo tiny right now, they already are little people.

Tomorrow I have another check-up with my OB and I'll have another u/s then. I will get one at each visit since they want to be sure both heartbeats are going strong. I guess it's hard to differentiate the two with just a doppler.

EJ is great. We put up our Christmas tree this weekend and so far he hasn't fussed with it. I didn't want to get involved with the constant "no touch" of the ornaments, so we put them on the top half of the tree only. The lights go all the way down and he hasn't seemed too interested in them. We'll see how the next month goes. It's fun thinking of all the gifts Santa will bring him. He'll be two on NY's Day so he's at an age for the really fun toys like Mr. Potato Head and Sit n' Spin. All the good stuff we remember playing with as kids. I have a feeling we're going to go overboard at the toy store :D

Wonderful. Great NT measurements. So glad to see that they are both flourishing.

Plus you get lots of ultrasounds to keep a good eye on them as they grow.
