This week's ultrasound updates

We got to see the babies twice this week. Because of the ICP, the babies are being monitored more closely so we can be prepared if something starts going wrong and we can take the babies right then.
Nothing too exciting to report except that they are getting great grades on all of their measurements. We didn't get any growth measurements, so we don't know about how much they weigh or anything like that. But their heart rates, blood flow from the umbilical cords, and amniotic fluid all scored 8 out of 8 on their medical scale (which is good!). And they are still practicing their breathing which is good news about their lungs developing and getting ready for birth.
It's getting a lot harder to make out all of the images on the screen at each ultrasound, so David and I usually just stare at it will blank looks on our faces until we see a spine, or a profile really quickly, or a heart beating. That's pretty much all we can pick out.But this picture is somewhat clear enough to post... The tech told us that they're belly to belly. This picture was taken on Tuesday and they were still in this same position yesterday (they have no room to go anywhere else!)

The 2 round spots are the bellies and the line in between them is the line that divides the 2 sacs for the babies.Also, here's what the chalkboard is looking like today...
