We have made it to week 26! This week is all about the OB appointment with an ultrasound for growth PLUS the dreaded glucose test and some blood work. I was not too worried about the growth scan because I can feel them more PLUS I am getting BIGGER so something is growing in there. I will say I was nervous about the glucose test to screen of gestational diabetes since if you are having twins there is a higher chance of having it.
Almost ALL good news from the appointment. NO gestational diabetes and my blood pressure is rockin – 116/68. The babies were not wanting for me to see their cute faces so I did not get any photos from the ultrasound BUT sadly we did find out that BOTH babies are now breeched. Any tips on how to getting babies to move in a better position please let me know. After all the measurements they both weigh the exact same – 2 pound and 4 oz and are in the 57%. I could not be more happy about this – I know weight on twins is so important since they will be arriving early. Twins are considered full term at 36 weeks. The only negative from the appointment is that I am anemic so I have to start on some iron pills.
Movement is becoming stronger this week – the boy twin is starting to making my tummy roll and his head is usually poking out on my left side. Baby A ( the girl) is tucked away so I only feel her kicks and that is about it. I really am getting excited to meet my little two sweets – they better get ready for TONS of kisses.
