How to get an Extra Ultrasound

1. Carry 7 lb twins, and go 3 weeks early(aka Have a big old babies)

2. Look out of proportion with the rest of your body(for those of you who did not see me last time, or who haven't seen me in a while, think normal everything else except for the massive watermelon on my stomach.

And the most important....

3. Measure early, for example I am measuring 6 weeks early! No joke, I about died when the Dr told me that.

So at my doctors appointment today I received the news...Miss Anna Cate is a Moose. Well not really but she is not hurting in the weight department. Since I was measuring BIG, the doctor had me get an ultrasound to make sure I wasn't going to have to schedule a C Section sooner. The good news is we got to see little girl, she is about 6 lbs right now, and we are going to get another ultrasound in about 2-3 weeks to see if she will be served her eviction notice early. The doctor said she thinks it is just that the twins stretched me out, and I just have a lot of amniotic fluid.




So for your viewing pleasure, here are two pictures of our little delicate flower....

LOL! I measured big too but no problems. They say baby puts on .5 lb/week at this point so that puts baby at a delicate 9 lbs at due date. ;)
