22 weeks

We had our 22 week appointment at the Perinatal Specialists office on June 27th. We had a different ultrasound specialist there this time named Teri. We loved her! She was so sweet & so funny! She cracked us up the entire time and we really got to enjoy our 2 little bundles of joy!

Baby A is laying low. Head to my right and feet to my left. Baby B is high up there with his head to my left and his feet to my right.

At first when we looked at Baby A this was what we saw...

...our sweet Baby A yawning...but he soon woke up & was more rambunctious than ever! Once he woke up he was twisting and turning, then began all the kicking! His measurements were great. He weighed in at 1 lb. His heartbeat was 120 BPM, and all of his measurements put him at 4 days ahead of schedule (22wks, 2 days).

Baby B also looked great; he was twisting and turning like usual. It was hard to get some of his measurements, but Teri did an amazing job of working with them as is and getting everything she needed! Baby B weighed in at 14oz. His heartbeat was 158 BPM (got figure! I will have my hands full!), and all of his measurements put him at 1 day behind schedule (21 wks, 5 days). But everything was perfect. I mentioned to the ultrasound specialist that I didn't really feel them moving that much. She explained that both of the placentas were in the front which would cause me to feel movement a little bit less. Then when we were measuring Baby B, we soon found out why...my poor little Baby B was being kicked in the head by his brother!!! Every picture we tried to take of his little head had his brother's foot in it. Baby B finally curled up in the bottom of his sack to get away from his brother's foot! My poor sweet baby!

Seems Baby A may be the one who is silent and dangerous!!! :)

It was so neat being able to see the 4 chambers of the heart beating, the organs, their faces, their bones and all. They confirmed no spina bifida, no clef pallet, and all organs are inside the body!!! Best and most important news so far!

Here are some pictures. I wanted to get this post up so I put up all the images. I will put captions on them later! If you want to look at each individual picture closer click on the view all images button!
