Adding a little extra excitement to the week, as if we needed any, we got two (sort of) unexpected scans. On Wednesday, Mrs. R had a routine scan, which was supposed to be Saturday (Lee’s trying to convince me that he got the travel dates confuse because the Dr’s office threw-off his timing…sure, Lee, whatever you say), but the scans showed the babies are doing well and progressing as they should. Their combined weight is now over 8lbs with TO coming in at a husky 4.3lbs and TT at ~3.8lbs, leading daddy Lee to continue thinking TO’s a boy and TT’s a girl. On Saturday, we received the second scan, unexpectedly since we thought the Wednesday one was replacing the Saturday scan. I’m sure everyone who’s done this before understands the pit that quickly formed in our stomachs when we got a surprise email from Dr. Shivani’s office. Mrs. R wasn’t feeling normal fetal movements on Saturday morning, so she called the OB and they promptly brought her in for an ultrasound, which showed the two little buggers where perfectly fine. It may just seem like the logical thing to do, but it’s really comforting to know that when something seems out of the ordinary that both Mrs. R and the doctors quickly make sure that all is continuing to go well. So far, there have been no mentions in any reports of any impending labor, which is fantastic news for TO and TT (not to mention their very happy parents)!
