Anatomy scan-

The scan went pretty well. From what we could see, the babies were alright. We however could not get all the shots because the babies were not cooperating and positioned weird, so they'll try to get the rest next month. Baby A was pretty cooperative, as usual, but Baby B was all over and messing with us. Baby B is transverse, and Baby A is head down- basically they have their feet together, all the better to have kick wars. Which we got to watch again today, and yes I thought it was adorable.

Baby B was 11oz and Baby A was 10oz so they're both still measuring ahead. My cervix was nice and long, so that's promising! At this stage it should be 3-5cm and mine was 4.7cm even when they pressed on my lower abdomen to apply pressure to it. I don't think they'll be doing more cervical length checks, but my OB may give me more for peace of mind. For now things look good though.

For some reason when they gave me the disc with photos on them it was just of Baby B, so I was a little disappointed in that. It was two good profile shots of Baby B, but I would have liked at least one of Baby A. I think I'm going to call them about it, or at least mention it at the next appointment. I just worry that if something goes wrong, I won't have that... if that makes sense?

Here's my favorite of Baby B.

We're 18 weeks and 5 days today, so about halfway done (19wks is halfway to 38wks, which I won't be going past). There's a good chance they'll come earlier than that of course, since average gestation is 35wks with two. We'll see. We have about 5 more weeks until "viability" now. I see my OB in 2 weeks, and back to the MFM in 4.

awe man! I wonder why they left Baby A out? I have faith NOTHING will ever go wrong with either of the two but you should def get a copy so Baby A doesn't feel left out when they are 14 and Baby B rubs it in Baby A's face that they have pics! lol!!

Really rooting for you, AD.

Am glad that you are almost halfway done, and hopefully Baby A will give you a good pic in the next scan.

Good Luck!
