I kinda want to find out!!!
I have no idea, I'm going to try and ask questions this time, because when I had the initial scan I was so shocked I puked, and I didn't take much in!
Tomorrow is the day!!!
Good luck for the scan tomorrow! I had my 18 weeks scan last Tuesday - was there for an hour and a half and they only got through one twin so now I have to go back to get the other one done. Couldn't believe how much bigger they were since I last saw them at 12weeks. We found out one of them is a boy but the other one was being shy.
OH wow - what do they do at the 18 wk scan quartz?
That sounds full on.. how exciting that you know what one of them is!! Are you feeling really big now? Your tummy is out?
The 18 weeks scan checks for abnormalities so they do measurements of the brain, spine, feet, hands, check the kidneys etc etc - it was very full on and hard because mine are lying on top of each other diagonally across my uterus. One of mine has a tiny umbilical hernia so this means i will have to have lots of scans to monitor that and make sure it doesnt grow too big. I am definitely looking pregnant now and my bump is starting to feel heavy - god help me at 30 weeks!!! Was nice to find out the sex of one but hopefully next time the other one will cooperate. I was really hoping for one of each but I am predicting its going to be two boys.
good luck today lithium!!!
quartz wow and congrats on being over 18 wks. and congrats on one little boy at least! are yours fraternal twins? so there is a chance of one of each? when i had my nt scan they nearly couldnt get the measurements for one twin. i guess having more than one makes it pretty difficult for the sonographers! hopefully the little hernia doesnt get worse.
my tummy is well and truely noticeable im quite petite and i think i am already as big as i was at 19 wks with my son at 14 wks in this pregnancy! i found after a full on weekend with ds's 2nd birthday and my nieces 1st birthday and going out on sat night my back was really sore and achy. i think things are getting affected a lot more this pregnancy, my body is really telling me to take it easy.
Good luck today!
Can't wait for my scan two weeks to wait ( we had to postpone cos DH has had to fly out of town for work ) we are hoping to find out....
