16 Week Update

Me at 16 weeks. 

It’s been a big week for us! Had my 16 week scan on Friday December 9 and…

Found out the babies are GIRLS!!๐Ÿ’• 

This was a surprise to me — I have been so convinced this whole pregnancy that they were boys (until about a week ago when the sonographer said it was too early to tell…if they were boys I think it would have been obvious.) But…this is certainly not the biggest surprise this pregnancy๐Ÿ˜Š 

What’s even better is the good report from my MFM Doc (Maternal-Fetal Medicine, basically high-risk.) At these scans they are checking the babies size, amniotic fluid in their sacs, and the fluid in their bladders. They will be conducting this in-depth scans every two weeks for the foreseeable future. As of now, everything is within the range of normal and they are growing well. Baby A is at 85th percentile and Baby B is at 60th percentile. This was great relief to me as I have struggled to keep up with the eating requirements. The doc said not to worry, the babies are getting just what they need from me. It was so good to hear that. 

Baby B’s sweet face. Baby A was not in good position to get a picture so this is the only good one I got this time. Good thing there’s PLENTY more ultrasounds to come ๐Ÿ˜

Thankful today for these babies. It still all feels VERY overwhelming and scary, but I am thankful for the way God planned our family.
