Well this week marks the end of the 1st Trimester, only one more to go.....I'll give everyone a minute to catch on.
For those who do not know we will probably have the babies sometime between 27 and 30 weeks, so there will not be a true 3rd trimester. Not much to report this week, we did get back the test results for our nucotranslucency (genetics testing). Basically they take a few measurements and check for nasal bones to see if any of the babies are at a high risk for down syndrome or Trisomy 13 and 18. The good news is everyone is fine, no worries and no further testing needed. We really were not sure if we wanted to do the tests because we really weren't sure what we would do if the results were bad. Now we are glad we decided to as it is one less thing we have to worry about.
We did start tying to register last weekend, and I stress the "try". The saying "You don't know, what you don't know" never had so much meaning. I never realized there were so many different types of bottles, nipples, pacifiers, etc. Not to mention AJ is only good for about 1 - 2 hours before she needs to eat or sleep. So this will be a multiple week process but hopefully we can get there.
Below are more pictures of AJ and her ever growing belly. My mom requested some that showed more then just the belly, so here is your request and dedication....
She has gained 7lbs, which I guess is good. 63 more to go and only about 15 weeks to get there, so 4lbs per week for you math majors out there. We also started to measure the belly this week and I was a little shocked to find she is now 3 feet around. I would give you here before measurments but I like walking so I will just leave that tidbit out.
I probably won't post again until our next sonogram which is a week from Monday. Hopefully we will have the sexes by then so be sure to check back!
