A quick update

I saw the doctor today and his reaction to the difference in the babies' sizes was of surprise. Not a "Oh my god - this is awful, what will we do?!" but more of an "hmm. that's kind of odd isn't it" kind of thing.

Eric and I didn't full super confident with the quality of the ultrasound that we got, especially after having had the last few ultrasounds at the hospital and the doctor even commented that he hadn't heard great things about the clinic I went to (that I was sent to by that ob from last week!)

Anyways, long story short, his message was "don't freak out, it's probably nothing. we'll do another ultrasound in 2.5 weeks at the hospital and we'll see what's up then. until then, just relax." So that's what I'm doing. And the cramping I've been having many evenings (that I may or may not have previously mentioned) sounds like typical braxton hicks to him, so again I'm to relax, not overdo things and keep on keepin' on. He said "you know what a real contraction feels like. If you have any of those, then you worry, otherwise, you're fine."

So we're good :) I'm just trying to rest, keep my feet up and keep positive.

Glad you have nothing to worry about, hope your are enjoying your taking it easy, nothing beats a Dr telling you not to do anything but relax :).
