20 Weeks Ultrasound...

We had our biweekly ultrasound today at the high risk OB office. I guess we are kind of lucky we get to see our babies every two weeks. Why do we get ultrasounds every two weeks you may ask? Well our twins are identical which means they share one placenta. The key word is share. Biweekly we have an ultrasound to measure the amniotic fluid and size of each baby. The thing we are monitoring for is if the babies are sharing appropriately (the is a disorder called Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome). This basically is were one baby does not share very well gets really big leading to the other not growing along with a multitude of other problems.
 So far are babies are doing great and this week was no different. Both babies are growing appropriately and they have the appropriate amount of fluid. It is always a relief to see them. I am thanking God for such healthy babies! We got some new pictures today!
My favorites are of their sweet little profiles. 

They are so precious!
