Twenty weeks with TWO!
We just had our twenty week anatomy scan. The ultrasound tech said that both babies were growing like singletons clocking in at 12 ounces apiece. Baby B weighs 8 grams more than A, which is negligible. If we have a natural delivery, Baby A will obviously come out first - his/her head was so low in my pelvis that they practically had to put me upside down to get him/her to move out to look at the head, but if we have a c-section (of which the likelihood is around 75%!), Baby B is more likely to be born first. Both babies were head down during the ultrasound (which doesn't mean too much for the long run at this stage) and looked like they were having a little conference together. As with Eleanor and Jane, we aren't planning on finding out their genders until they join us in November. I think the biggest adjustment has just been thinking that the amount of children we have is about to double. We definitely have our work cut out for us!
