Enjoy the US though... I'm starting to miss my little bugger. I had 6 US from 6-18 weeks and now I'm anxiously awaiting 28 weeks to see if my previa is still there just because I'm dying to see him/her again.
It sound like your 2 little buggers are thriving.... so happy for you!

So excited for you! Trust me, you will miss the u/s once they slow down! My last pg was high risk and I had tons of u/s, but with this one, I've only had 4 at 21 weeks and now I have to wait until 28 weeks to see my bean again... its crazy to see how much they change between each one when you have to wait a while.

I'm guessing you'll be bk in for another u/s in a couple of weeks for the 1st tri screening though... right?

Congrats again on your amazing news!

we're opting not to do the 1st trimester screening. i just dont want to do it again. i did it with my son, it was this big thing, and i really didnt get much out of it, other than that he was 1 in 10,000 chance of having DS or trisomy 18 (whatever, it was the "best" possible results you can have). one of my friend's friend had the same results...and the baby still ended up having Down's. so im just not feeling the need to do it this time. we are doing the blood test between 15-17 weeks that tests for Down's, trisomy, and one other thing. if i was over 35 i probably would do the NT screening though. im just a lot more relaxed about this pregnancy, i dont know why. especially bc im having twins. i think it's great that other people do it, it's just not for us this time around. my new OB didnt push it either (my old one kind of did with my son). i asked him if he thought it was really necessary and he said no. but he would support either decision.
so my next appointment is around 14/15 weeks. but my OB said that if i get worried for any reason i can come in again at anytime for an ultrasound, which i thought was cool.
