Babies 23 Weeks

We almost didn't get photos of today's ultrasound. They finished everything, sent us out to check out and I realized we didn't have any photos. So I asked and guess what? They forgot! So this sweet technician took us back and did another quick ultrasound so I could have a few more photos. They aren't as photogenic as I would like but the top shows Baby B, his back side. He had his face hidden so we did not get a profile shot. He weights 1 pound 4 ounces. The bottom is of Baby A, also a backside shot. His little head is curled downward, he weighs the most of the two at 1 pound 5 ounces. Each are situated transversely, or are laying sideways in my belly. Every day they are kicking more and more and with more ferocity!

Everything looks great which was encouraging. We are praying daily for healthy, beautiful boys. We still have so much to do, including a new paint job for the nursery and a lot of organization. Hopefully we will accomplish everything with time to spare. I am running out of energy each day so hopefully we can accomplish a lot in October.

We had our C-section class Saturday. Even though we know what we are in for it still was a bit overwhelming to talk about everything that will be involved with the procedure. It would be a blessing to have a normal birth but our chances of that are fairly slim, it seems most multiple pregnancies result in a C-section.

We start Lamaze classes the first Saturday in October. I figure it still will be good to learn all the breathing techniques besides we still have a chance of possibly having a normal delivery.

Thanks for all your continued support and love for our growing family. We will keep you updated as the weeks pass by.
