Shannon and I had an appointment for our ultrasound, BPP, and NST along with a check up with Dr. Holsten yesterday. Everything went well. The babies did not cooperate with the ultrasound so we got NO picturess.....sorry....I was disappointed too! It was also hard to get a cranium measurement for Madelynn but the sonographer did her best. According to the measurements...which can be off a couple ounces, Thomas is 4 lbs 9 ounces and Maddy is 5 lbs. Isn't that amazing!!! Like mama said....I already have more baby in my belly than she did when she had me at 9lbs 1 ounce and we thought that was a lot! Madelynn still is breech but it is not a total breech. She is actually a bit sideways in a ball. Her legs are above her head but she is still considered breech. She is right on top of Thomas as they are touching....the sonographer could barely find the membrane that seperates them due to their being so close. Thomas covers my whole left side and Maddy is straight down the middle under my belly button. My right side is mostly baby free....which is why if I do get to lay down on a side that is the one I turn to....otherwise Thomas has a fit if I get on my left side. All in all it was a good day though and we are happy to know things are going well! We see Dr. Holsten again next Thursday along with another BPP and NST. We are praying for at least 2 more weeks before their arrival....anytime after that is icing on the cake! We are also praying that hurricanes Hanna and Ike don't head our way......we're watching the weather!
