Scan results are here

Our anomaly scans were receive this week and to our relief all is fine and normal. The update read as below:

There are two live intra-uterine gestations of calculated gestational age 18 - 21 weeks with a thin membrane separating the liquors.

Fetus 1 :- On the right, position Variable. The foetal parameters are corresponding to a gest. age of 19 W 6 D. The estimated foetal weight is approximately 296 +/- 40 gms.

Fetus 2 :- on the left, Position Variable. The foetal parameters are corresponding to a gest. age of 20 W 1 D. The estimated foetal weight is approximately 322 +/- 45 gms

There are two distinct placentas seen. They are in the upper segment, right lateral in position for fetus one and posterior in position for fetus two. They are of maturity grading, grade I - II. There is no calcification present. There is no retro placental pathology.

The cardiac activity and fetal movements are well seen in these two fetuses. There is sufficient liquor. The fetal parts of both fetuses appear well formed with no obvious congenital anomaly seen. (Yippee!)

We were also lucky enough to receive around 20 scans, all of various parts of the twins. Here is my favourite (I have been telling everyone this is one of the twins waving hi!)

We are officially 21 weeks on Monday and the excitement builds every day. I am so excited about our baby shower which is planned for the 12th December. I thought this was little early, but with xmas and the new year fast approaching it will be February before we know it. Also this will allow plenty of time to work out what else we need for the babies. I have been banned from purchasing any more baby clothes....

The nursery has been measured for new plaster walls and will be done hopefully in the next month. Xmas is the deadline!

So for now we wait, we dream and we organise.
