Tiny Baby Update

Tiny in the sense that not much has changed... and tiny in the sense that they are TINY!

Baby A is measuring 1 lb 5 oz and Baby B is measuring 1 lb 3 oz. It's great news that they are so close in weight because that decreases the chances dramatically that they will have TTTS (Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome) which is only a risk for mono-di twins (the kind we are having). It was a big relief to see them swimming around while she took measurements - I can't always feel them throughout the day, but they sure are active! They are both head down as of now too, but at only 22 weeks, they are still more than able to flip summersaults around each other and point the other direction. They are already getting to the point where you can't really see all of them on one ultrasound picture, so I can only imagine the jumbled screen of arms and legs that we'll be seeing weeks down the road! There's a cute one of three of the four feet that we have, so I'll scan it in and post it soon.
