Healthy Babies!

Today was my first visit with the Perinatologist, Dr. Bradley. I loved her! They did all the genetic testing for Down Syndrome and Trisomy.... everything looked great! It was so much different than the ultrasounds with my regular OB. The bed you lay on is facing away from the ultrasound machine, which scared me that I would not get to see my little ones. I was wrong! She handed me a pair of high tech looking glasses to wear that had the image of the screen inside them... very cool! Both babies were moving and wiggling like crazy today which made me feel so much better since baby B was so still last week. It was my first external ultrasound and we could see the babies so much better! Today was the first day we could get really clear images of baby b and them together. The doctor did doppler to watch/listen to the bloodflow in me and the babies. The screen turned red and blue around their tummies where the cord is connected! I didn't think the appointment could get any better, but the doctor got this picture of the twins and turned it into 3d 4d! They looked exactly like little gummie bears. The pictures definitely lost some detail in the scanner, but you can still see both gummybear babies.

Baby A (I love the little hand!)
