30 Weeks

Today we got our report on the twins and Ms. S.

Twin 1 is Measuring 27 weeks and 4 days. Weighing in at 1100 grams, this little one is in a Breech Presentation.

Twin 2 is Measuring 29 weeks and 2 days. Weighting in at 1379 grams, this little on is in a Breech Presentation as well.

At this time they seem to be happily growing and Ms.S is doing really well.
Ultra Sound pictures have arrived. Heads Side by Side

I am just wrapping up work and within the next 2 weeks I will start to pump and get my breastmilk started.

We have our Indian Visas and have purchased our tickets to fly out Oct 31, 2011 arriving in India on Nov 1, 2011 Pending that these babies stay put!

Things feel wonderful and life is good!

Twins fetal development - 28 weeks pregnant

Twins in womb at 28 weeks pregnant At 28 weeks your twins will have grown to about 15 inches/ 38cm from top to toe (10 inches/ 25.5 centimetres from crown to rump) and will weigh nearly 2 lb /875g each. Their eyes open and close, they sleep and wake at regular intervals and they may suck a finger or thumb. Your twins' brain growth is very rapid this month. The characteristic grooves on the brain's surface start to appear and more brain tissue develops. Nearly all fetuses react to sound by the end of the seventh month. At about this time, your twins can open their eyes and turn their heads in utero if they notice a continuous, bright light shining from the outside. Their fat layers are forming. In boys, testicles descend from near the kidneys through the groin en route to the scrotum. In girls, the clitoris is relatively prominent because it's not yet covered by the still-small labia. These will grow to cover it in the last few weeks before birth. Their skeletons are hardening even more. While your twins may soon slow down growing in length, they will continue to gain weight until they are born. A pint and a half/around a litre of amniotic fluid now surrounds each of your twins, but that volume decreases as they gets bigger and have less room in your uterus.

Oh my goodness!
