23 week growth scan

We had our first growth scan ultrasound today. With twins we  have growth scans every month until they are born to monitor each baby's growth. They measure each one's stomach, head and femur on the ultrasound to come up with a weight. Today Baby A is 1 lb. 2 oz. (37th percentile) and Baby B is 1 lb. 3 oz. (45th percentile).  From here on out they should be growing quite fast.

Both babies are in position with their heads down, but there is still lots of time for them to move around and out of position. Knowing these two wiggly worms, they will probably move in and out of position over the next couple months. It was fun to see all four feet tangled up at the top - no surprise to us because we both felt them kicking all weekend long.

I'm thankful that both babies are doing great and we are all having a healthy pregnancy so far.  Thank you all for supporting us through this crazy adventure!
