We saw the specialist yesterday and were greeted with the question, "How did this happen?" I wasn't sure what she was asking because you would suspect a doctor with multiples as a specialty might already know about that special love between a man and woman. I must have looked dumbfounded because then she offered, "You just don't often see this naturally. With identical it has to be natural, but it is rare." I forgot that she was the one you would see to handle a pregnancy of multiples after an invitro procedure. I admit it made me a little sad that we as a society play God so much that we risk loosing the wonder of His creations.
The labels of A and B have flipped as this time the baby on the left side has suck down and is almost positioned under her sister on my right side. The above shot is that of Baby on Right Side.
This is a shot of Baby on the Left Side. Last week she was the one that was hard to get a shot of. This week she was ready, but her sister hid most of the time. Well her face was hidden but we did get good measurements.
The great news is that as of today they look great. All anatomy is where it should be, the weights are normal and the placenta is providing both babies with all they need. The fear of the issues are there and will be there until they are delivered. Issues can develop at any time so we will now have ultrasounds every two weeks. I was happy to learn that a natural delivery is still possible but I was told not to count on it. "You just never know with Twins!" I am learning everyday that these two babies are going to change our lives. No mater how our lives change we feel very blessed!
