24 weeks-V day!

The babies turned 24 weeks yesterday-and we’ve made it to V-day (viability).  If they were born now, they would have a chance to survive-but obviously I hope they keep cooking for another 12-13 weeks!

We had our 24 weeks scan this morning and everything is looking good-the babies are growing like they should-each around a pound and a half. My cervix still looks good-which I was so happy to hear. I have been having tons of Braxton Hicks contractions-so I was worried.

I feel them moving all the time now-at least 4-5 times a day. I love it when I can put my hand on my belly and feel one of them kick me!

Last week we went on a mini babymoon/early 5 year anniversary trip-I’ll recap with some pictures in another post.

What the babies are up to this week:
His/Her see-through skin is gradually becoming more opaque.
And it’s got a new pink glow, thanks to the small capillaries that have recently formed.

22 Weeks

This past week has been busy!  While the babies have been doing their thing and growing, we’ve been moving!

This past Saturday we moved from our townhouse to a two story house-so far I love it!  I can’t wait to get totally settled in and start on the nursery! 

I recieved the first shower invite for our couples shower Monday-it is so cute and I’m so excited-its all a bit surreal though.  I can finally feel the babies periodically moving around and Eric has even been able to feel them a couple of times from the outside! It is really incredible. There is still some deattachment between the knowledge that there are two babies in there and really feeling it.  I still don’t think I will believe it until they are here and we’re able to meet them!

Saturday we’re leaving for a mini vacation-and going to Savannah and St. Simons Island for a few days.  Our 5th anniversary is next month, so I wanted to do something to celebrate-but didn’t think waiting until next month was a wise idea!

your baby at 22 weeks 

  • Now that he’s got more developed eyes and lips, he’s looking even more like a newborn.
  • He’s sleeping in cycles — about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they’re probably those times you’re not feeling any kicks!).
