Each twin weighs several ounces more than the average twin at the same gestational age. Their fluid levels are the same, their growth is the same, their heartbeats are strong in the 160s and my cervix is very long. Look at me...bragging already! We still have a ways to go, but for now, all is going very, very well. I'm so grateful!
Remember what I told you when I was about 8w along? The Twinks are strong, so very, very strong. They are here to stay.
My peri (who I'll call Dr. Sweetie) was so optimistic and pleased with our current stats that he said we could wait four weeks until our next appointment. Typically I would be seen every two weeks from this point forward. And while I love seeing my Twinks, I am happy not to lay there through hour-plus long ultrasounds more often than necessary.
The sonographer (also an IVF survivor) printed me a ridiculous amount of pictures. Suffice to say I have asked to have her at my next ultrasound! She said that she was pretty sure they are boys. I would say that I am more than 100% sure. All you have to do is look at the photos below...
Yes, indeedy. The Twinks are little boys. The new men in my life. Swoon!
