We're 7 to 8 inches long and wiggling!

18 weeks and 3 days

We went to the doctor's today and had a chance to have a detailed "anatomical scan" of the twins. This was a detailed scan looking for any potential issues. For example, they measured the babies' head, brain, eye lens, stomach, bladder, kidney, heart (4 chambers), bone length, etc. Just amazing what the Tech can see on what to us looks like a blurry screen. Any way - the babies are doing great and appear to be on track.

The little boy (twin A) is now 100% confirmed a boy and was feet down and facing up to my tummy. He kept yawning during the ultrasound, and he had his hands up around by his eyes/ears.

The little girl (twin B) was head down, but facing my back (harder to see her face today). She even had her little ankles crossed. True to form and previous scans, she kept wriggling the whole time, and also had hiccups during a good bit of the scan.

So cute to see so much so early. We estimate that they are probably 7 to 8 inches long, and the boy is estimated to weigh 9 oz, and the girl weighs approx 8 oz. They've doubled in weight in 4 weeks. And as I remind Hugh, "you ain't seen nothing yet."

Anyway - thanks for everyone's support and prayers. See you in a few weeks at Amelia.
