All looked great at the appointment. Both boys were head down and they were active and kicking (each other) throughout the ultrasound. Their heart rates are slowing down as the grow which is normal. Today Baby A was in the high 140's and Baby B around 135. My cervical length was at 4.5-5+ cm which is SUPER news and BP, urine and weight were all ok as well. In addition to the u/s we saw the doctor and for fun I had her do a fundal height measurement. In a singleton pregnancy you typically measure a centimeter for the number of week pregnant you are. We are now 22 weeks 3 days and I measured 28 cm ... that's 6wks ahead! No wonder I feel I've grown!!
Afterwards the five of us enjoyed a wonderful lunch and chatted for awhile. It was a perfect day for sitting out on the patio at MashUp and the food was AWESOME as always. K and her friends were so very generous and gave me a Gift Card, some maternity apparel and ORANGES!! IM also got me a maternity support which I've never used before but, knowing how she researches everything I'm guessing if she bought it, she read up on the reviews and it was highly recommended. ;) I'll have to try it out for myself, especially if I end up with a twin belly like my Blogger friend, a fellow surro, over at True Life: I'm a Stork! No offense Samantha but your belly scares the **** out of me!!! One of the highlights of the afternoon was that K got to feel one of her baby boys kick! There is always tons of movement going on now so I'm glad she was able to experience it for herself. :)We parted ways with hugs and well wishes, always such a pleasure to see you E & N and thanks so much for everything!
My IPs and I have a busy schedule the next few weeks, lots of appointments and a couple of fun get-togethers coming up too. Although the crazy number of doctor visits gets a bit overwhelming, I love all the time I get to spend with K&S, their friends and family.
Here is the latest belly pick - 22wks
