I was a bit concerned after the follow up from my previous ultrasound. At the appointment my Doctor told me that it appears that baby A is measuring about 20% smaller than baby B. Now, that said, they weren't able to get all of baby A's measurements at that time since she just wasn't cooperating for all of them, but he said we'd be keeping a close eye on their sizes. He said just one measurement can really throw off the anticipated size as a whole, so I'm hoping that after today's ultrasound they'll have gotten what they need and it'll show more even growth. Apparently they are both still within "normal" range size wise for their gestation, so that's a good thing. He also said that it doesn't appear to be a problem with the placenta, and it could easily be that baby A is just a smaller baby. I'll be looking forward to the follow up for this ultrasound to see what's going on.
That said, I've been feeling pretty good recently and thinking I might have a bit more of an appetite than I've had until now. I have hip, back and groin pain but I guess that's just part of the deal this time around. I've been doing a good bit of knitting in preparation for the girls coming, and I just can't wait to see them wearing my creations. I'll be sure to post pictures of them wearing them.
