33 Weeks - 3D Ultrasounds

Doctor's appointment went great yesterday.  All looked great.  They did in fact do measurements.  I felt good to know how they are measuring.  The fluid is good and the doctor gave me the green light to go home and keep doing what I am doing.  So Baby A is measuring a little ahead of schedule and Baby B is a little behind.  But neither at a rate that is worrisome.  Stats for the girls are as follows:  Aailyah = Baby A = 4lbs 10oz and Jocelyn = Baby B = 4lbs 2oz 
One of the cool things that they did yesterday at the appointment was 3D ultrasounds.  I know that every week I go to these appointments and I get to see an ultrasound of the babies, but these pictures really made it real.  You can really see them and they are there and they are coming and SOON!  Brett hasn't made it to many of the appointments since I was given driving privileges so it was fun to share these with him.  Up in the left top corner it tells you if the picture you are looking at is A or B.  Jocelyn was very cooperative.  She even smiled for one picture and yawned for another.  Aaliyah is positioned pretty low so it is tough to see her.  The dark line on the right side of her face is the membrane.  The membrane separates the two girls in their own amniotic sacs.  How it was explained to me was that it is super thin.  They kick it around all the time and it moves very easily.  Notice on the pictures you can even see their hair.  We are really looking forward to their arrival.
