Nothing to worry about... I think

We had an ultrasound yesterday to check on the growth of the babies and there was lots of great news:

- Baby A is head down. This makes me very happy and I hope he stays that way. Baby B is breech and that's just fine with me as long as Baby A doesn't decide to follow suit. And hey, maybe getting kicked in the head repeatedly will convince her to turn over too ;)
- Cervix is closed and nice and long. I was worried about that because it seems that one of the biggest reasons for bed rest is that your body starts getting ready for delivery way too early and so far so good on that front.
- They're moving nicely, their bladders and tummies are working well, heartrate good, etc etc. yay

And then there's the thing that makes me a bit nervous. I have an appointment on Tuesday with my doctor and am really looking forward to him telling me I shouldn't worry.

Baby A weighed 1 lb 15 oz and Baby B weighed 2 lbs 5 0z. That's a really big difference!!

He's in the 18th percentile and she's in the 48th. BIG difference!!

Now, I know that we make small boys, and I DID joke that our girl would end up being the one who got my fatty genes instead of the skinny ones from my husband's side. But still... I just want to make sure this isn't an issue and will feel better when a professional tells me.

I'm sure everything will be ok! My sister's twins had a little over 2 pounds difference at birth.

Oops, I meant to add that I will be thinking of you though and hope you'll update as soon as possible on Tuesday.

Try not to spend too much time worrying about this. I'm sure all will be well, and anyways your anxiety won't change things, and it isn't good for you, the babies, or K and Eric.

I forgot to mention:
I challenged you to a 52 week photo challenge.

Hi. It was great to meet you last night!
I hope the doctor isn't worried because it's hard to deal with stress induced by stuff you cannot control. I hope he has a good bedside manner. Take care.

Did you get pictures? Can you post them? You can't put too much stock in how much the ultrasound techs tell you the baby weighs- they've been off before. And that's 6oz difference right? Half a pound? Keep eating and hopefully baby boy will catch up!

Glad to hear everything is going well with the babes and the pregnancy. I agree it is always nice to be re-assured by a professional. It was really nice meeting you at the movies.
