Babies are about 15 inches long and weigh about 2 1/4 pounds each! Wow! They can now blink, and their eyes sport lashes! Fingers crossed that we have a baby in there sporting Farid's lashes!! Seriously, folks...they are incredible! :) Babies are adding more fat each day in preparation for the outside world. (I hear ya, kiddos!)
How's Jeni feeling? Quite Fantastic! I was definitely prepared to feel pretty darn uncomfortable at this stage of our pregnancy, but I'm really feeling quite well! Sure, I get tired. Sure, my hips and back ache from time to time. But overall, I am very comfortable and continue to live my normal life...even if Skyler says I "make a lot of noise" when I get up! Her favorite thing to do to me when I'm trying to get out of bed, get out of the car, or even just stand up from sitting is to yell, "HEAVE, HO!!!" That's definitely what it feels like sometimes, but once I'm up, I'm good to go! :) Thanks a lot, Skyler. You COULD offer me a hand, but instead, you crack jokes...I wonder where you get THAT from???
|If you're grasping for the right word here...I believe its, RADIANT! :)|
We had an ultrasound and the babies are looking great! Baby Girl is HEAD DOWN!!! Did you hear that???? Yahoooooo!!!! Her heart rate was 150 and she weighs 2.8 pounds! Good girl! Baby Boy is head up which is completely a-o-k. His heart rate was 136 and he weighs 2.9 pounds! Wow! We are all thrilled that the babies are so happy and healthy!
My blood pressure is still good. Gained another 3 pounds. Lots of amniotic fluid. Cervix is still long, although it has shortened in the last month. All good, good, good!!! The Dr. even let George and Farid operate the doppler to find each baby's heartbeat! How fun!! Sorry you had to have a close-up view of the stretch mark covered belly, guys. It is what it is, I guess! :)
Well, I guess that sums it up from here! Sounds like the guys might be coming with me to yoga tonight! The girls from class are going to be so excited!!!
