Week 24 Ultrasound

So as I mentioned yesterday, I had my monthly ultrasound yesterday.  I didn't get nearly as many pictures as normal, but that's OK.  The technician said she was just having a hard time getting pictures, but I think she was just having a hard time with life, IMHO.  But I digress, the boys are fine and healthy and right on track, so that's all that matters.

There's still all sorts of mix up with my EDD... according to my OB, its 11/21, which is based off my LMP, but for some reason, the place I go for my ultrasounds now has me as being due 11/16.  I think it has something to do with the first ultrasound I had there, where both boys measured early, so they just changed it, but it can get confusing, when according to my OB, yesterday was 23w1d for me, but the scans say 23w6d.  Whatevs, like the OB said, I probably won't make it to either date so no point worrying over it.

They are still measuring a little ahead of schedule, but nothing too drastic, just a couple days.  Both heartbeats were 150, which is great because I was a little nervous a couple weeks ago when one was down to 120... I know that's still in the normal range but it just seemed so low.  They also both weighed 1 lb 6 oz, so thats 3 big ol' pounds of baby in me right now (feels like so much more...).

Baby A, who was have decided to name Lucas (barring any changes), was originally head down, but as the scan progressed, he flipped around and was breech again.  We got a really cute picture of him yawning or smiling or doing something adorable.  Check it out below.

Baby B, who will be Lane (again, barring any changes), was being shy.  He kept his hands in from of his face most of the time so the technician could not get a picture.  Luckily but the time the radiologist came to check them out, he stopped, so we got a nice profile pic of him, balancing on his head chewing away at something, SO CUTE to see his little mouth go.  He's laying pretty much sideways on top of Lucas now.

The only potential problem is my low lying placenta.  I was hoping it would have moved by now but its still in the same place.  It isn't quite covering or touching my cervix, but the tip is right beside it, and it is seeming more and more likely that I will have to have a c-section because of it.  I'm really not sure how I feel about this yet.  The OB said that alot of time, with twins, they will let the mom pick what they prefer (vaginal or c-sec, barring a reason for the c-sec like placenta previa or breech baby), and many times, they opt for the c-sec to reduce the stress of birth to the second baby.  I was pretty open to whatever was best, but I have to admit, I'm a little scared of the surgery and recovery, and a little sad that I might have to miss out on the birth of my babies, but whatever needs to be done I am sure is the best... and who knows, maybe I still have time for the placenta to move.  We'll see...

So like I said, not too many pics, just three, but enjoy our boys!!
