I receive weekly emails updating me of the growth of the babies. Thought you may enjoy knowing what is going on with the twins. :c)

Week 24 - How your baby's growing: Your baby's growing steadily, gaining about a quarter of a pound since last week, when she was just over a pound. Since she's almost a foot long, that makes a pretty lean figure, but her body is filling out proportionally and she'll soon put on more baby fat. Your baby's skin is thin, translucent, and wrinkled, her brain is growing rapidly, and her taste buds are developing. Her lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" and cells that produce surfactant, a substance that helps the air sacs inflate easily.

Edited to add - I updated the ultrasound photo album just now and added 3D face photos of each of the babies!!! Too early to tell who they look like. To me they just look like babies. :c)
