We had another scan and cervix check. All ok.
But the babies are bashful and have been hiding their faces toward their placentas. For the last two scans. UGH!
We did get a lovely belly shot, of both. Our next scan is a echosonogram so we can check on the babies’ hearts. They have 4 chambers (which has already been confirmed) but this will look for more abnormalities, if there happen to be any(though I hope they are just fine). our quad screen came back negative for neural tube defects and with a low incidence of Down’s Syndrome. It is hard to tell with twins but the DR said it is probably fairly accurate.
I am popping out like a balloon but my cervix is nice and long.
I have started to think of baby things, if I dare, like ordering the co-sleeper (eventually), or ordering cloth diapers and those newborn infant gowns.
I come from a family of Ashkenazi Jews who don’t believe in showers or setting up a nursery until babies are born healthy. Does anyone else have cultural traditions like this? Makes it rather hard to get ready for twins.
