12 Week Ultrasound

Well...it was uneventful. I was hoping to have an NT scan done where they check the fluid behind the neck to evaluate chromosomal problems such as Down Syndrome...HOWEVER that facility is not equipped for that. So that was a bummer. PLUS we were not able to see the sex yet...another bummer. But they were both very active and bouncy and heart beats were 156 and 151 beats per minute which are real good. They were also measuring big so my due date has been moved from December 29th to December 24th...Christmas Eve babies!!! But I pray I dont make it that far...hehe. Twins usually deliver between 36-37 weeks. On the down side she said it looks like they are sharing the same placenta, different sacs but same placenta...which is not good. It can lead to Twin to Twin Transfusion syndrome...where one baby gets all the nutrients and the other one does not develop as it should. One baby gets big and the other stays tiny...and can lead to early delivery. She could not tell me if anything was "wrong" but if there was I know the doctor will call me tomorrow. But we know its all good right !!! *wink wink* And I got a good look see at their heads and they looked very well developed Praise God. Well...my next step is my level II ultrasound at 18 weeks. That ultrasound will be able to tell us they are healthy, and the sexes. I cant wait!!!! God is Good!
