Today I had a 2 hour detailed ultrasound that went over the details of each babe’s anatomy. All organs, limbs, fingers, toes and bones were photographed and measured. I wasn’t given measurements and won’t have those results until my next OB appointment on January 26, 2017. I had an OB appointment this morning immediately after the ultrasound but the OB’s office didn’t have the results yet.
Both babes are developing perfectly normal. Baby B still has an absence of a nasal bone but this isn’t anything to be concerned about. Sometimes they just don’t develop. The nose will still look normal and formed, it just MIGHT be a bit squishy when pressed down on. The placentas are not low lying (this is a good thing) but one of the babe’s umbilical cord is off centre. This is common with twins, it just means they will continue to track both babes’ growth through one of the many ultrasounds I will be attending over the next 4 months.
All organs are healthy and normal. All limbs and bones are healthy and normal. I was able to see baby B’s digits and toes very clearly. All 10 are accounted for.
The babes are very active and moving around, although I haven’t felt any movement yet. This will happen within the next 4 weeks according to the OB. I’ve gained 20 pounds since the beginning of September and my blood pressure is 128/72. The OB is not concerned about my weight gain, apparently the increase blood volume accounts for 6 pounds alone. She said I am about to experience rapid weight gain.
