Well, we had our "high definition" ultrasound appointment with Dr. Kirshon in Houston today. Dr. Oliver recommends this as a standard procedure for any of her patients carrying multiples.... so nothing to worry about.

It was amazing - as are all of our ultrasounds :c) But this time I had my own TV screen to look at and didn't have to have my head cricked to the side to see. The Dr. even let David video record the whole appointment (our 1st time to get to tape it) and I look forward to watching it again.

Dr. Kirshon scanned me for a little over an hour - closely measuring every bone and organ possible in each baby. They are growing right along and each weigh just a few ounces shy of 2 pounds.

Last month, baby A = girl, was 1 ounce larger than her brother and head down. However this time she was positioned BREACH and is the smallest baby. Baby B = boy, today was positioned horizontal with his head just under my right boob. No wonder I have been having such nagging pains in my ribcage there - but all this time I thought it was a foot... Nooooooooo, he is head butting me! LOL

We go for our monthly appointment with Dr. Oliver on Wednesday. I hope she will have my records from today’s visit by then. I over heard Dr. Kirshon recording in his hand held tape recorder something about able to deliver at 37 weeks…. Which is 1 week earlier than Dr. Oliver originally told me.

I am at 26 weeks now, so if that be the case...I only have about 11-12 weeks left before we get to meet the babies!

Alice: Bonnie, I can't believe how baby b looks just like you. So, your Nora looks like David and now your baby boy will look like you. How funny. I can't remember if you have names picked out yet or not. Please take care of yourself. Love Miss Alice
