We have fortnightly ultrasounds on the boys as they are at risk of suffering from TTTS (twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome) which is a really bad thing. However, at this stage, they are showing no signs - fantastic!
Two weeks ago, Twin A was measuring in the 9th percentile for size and Twin B was measuring in the 5th percentile. Neither the person doing the scan nor our obstetrician made a big deal of it - they didn't even tell us the percentiles - but both mentioned that the twins were small, and double-checked that they were, in fact, growing (which they were). The results from the latest scan we had were rather different - both twins are now measuring in the 50th percentile!!! I haven't been eating differently, or doing any more, or less, exercise, but the boys have certainly had a HUGE growth spurt in the last two weeks!!! It was so nice to walk out of the obstetrician's office relieved for once, and not worrying about the babies being small!
In other good news, our belongings have finally arrived! It has been so nice to have the boxes to unpack, and I've already baked two cakes and batch of cookies now that I have my baking things! There is, however, one package which has mysteriously vanished. It had in it our big wedding photo canvas - which we were yet to unwrap, and the plastic ends for the bed slats...meaning we can't put our bed together! At least we can sleep on our mattress now though, and the air bed has been consigned to the cupboard, where it belongs!
Been thinking a lot about Christa's husband and their two boys...it just breaks my heart that Andy is now without his high school sweetheart, and that A & T will have so few memories of their amazing mother...
