Belly full of babies

We had our last ultrasound for growth this morning.

Oh.

My.

Gosh.

How big?

You want to know how big they are?

Well! Let me tell you.

According to the computer, from the three measurements they take of each baby (head circumference, belly circumference and femur length), give or take 16 oz:

Emma: 6 lb 11 oz
Logan: 7 lb 0 oz

I'm carrying between ~12-14 lbs of babies. No wonder my hips hurt!

For those of us keeping track, I'm officially carrying somewhere between 1.05 and 1.2 Olivers. Yes, he's the measurement I'm tracking to. Misty and I giggled over it, now it looks like the twins heard me and took us seriously.

Oh and Emma has turned head down again (How I didn't feel it I'll never know.), so they are both head to head now. Very likely whispering and making plans. These last 3 weeks I thought I was patting Emma's head. Nope! Looks like it's been all feet and tushies. Hah!

Eleven (11) days to go.
Or less!


Updated to add: The doc just called and said that they think the babies look great and appear to be anywhere between 6-6.5 lbs each. Apparently they automatically deduct some of the weight the computer assigns them, since they expect twins to be smaller than the computer does. However, the up-side is that they are continuing to grow and they look good.

WOW! I wonder if they'll come out with a taste for Jamaican food. You never know...it's all so cool! I highly recommend experiencing pregnancy vicariously through your favorite friends. Good job mommy - hang in there!

Hey there!

Woman, you need to come over so you can experience the food first hand. There will be plenty.

Wow! That's insane! and really good weights, aren't you glad you don't have to push them both out?!
Oy!

Yay for big healthy babies.

I will be glad when I can comment "Yay for big healthy babies who have finally made their big debut!"

Soon the countdown will be in to single digit numbers! Hooray and Hallelujah!

I will be glad of the same thing, Missy.

Oh my hips!

However, if they break past Caitlin's birth weight of 6 lb 14 oz each, I think someone (Ahem...Eric?) will owe me something big. And pretty.

Oof!

That's a whole lotta babies! So glad they're healthy and getting ready for their premier appearance. These next 10 days will go very fast. Great fun to be with you guys Sunday night. The ham dinner was delish, and we are very honored to have first hand experience of Mom's cooking. Yay Pauline!
