Well we are just back from the NT ultrasound scan. Wow! It was amazing!
The twins were swimming all over the place. J was just blown away - he missed the last u/s, so he hasn't seen them in a month and he was just amazed. Watching them move around is so fascinating and wonderful. It's so amazing that they move so much when they are still so small. We saw arms and legs moving, a mouth open and close (I think I even saw a tongue!). The one on the left actually rolled over a couple times, and the one on the right was stretching, arching its back, and it even sort of jumping - pushing with it's legs off the bottom of the sac (I wonder if that's what I've been feeling!). I just can't even describe how awesome it was.
I'm no longer clear on which one is A and which is B. I think the one on the right is A. I guess is doesn't really matter. This ultrasound tech numbered them. And both of them are head-up now - so the one that had its head down two weeks ago has flipped over.
I don't know what the NT measurement really means - but the tech did say that they were in the normal range for their size. Here are the numbers:
twin 1 (on the right): 5.6cm crown-rump length; measuring at 12.3 weeks, NT = 1.5mm
twin 2 (left): 5.4 CRL; 12.2 weeks; NT = 1.4mm
The heart rates were both in the 160's.
Wow I feel so much better now - it's just such a sense of relief to see them looking so good. I'm really happy.
We got a few pics - but of course they just don't even come close to what it was like to see them swimming around. But they are really starting to look more and more like little humans. Especially in the third pic - of the one on the right side -it really looks like a little person.
