Anatomy Scan (19w3d)
Posted by auntiem10 on May 10, 2011
Everything looked great today at our anatomy scan! We feel very lucky. I posted three new pictures HERE if you want to check them out!
Every measurement for both babies was totally normal–amniotic fluid, nasal bone, nuchal fold, kidneys, belly, bones, etc. Twin A weighs approximately 10 ounces, and Twin B weighs approximately 11 ounces. Twin A’s heart was pumping away at a healthy 148 bpm, and Twin B’s heart rate was 143 bpm. Taking into account all of their measurements, the computer determined that they are both measuring 19w4d–one day ahead. My cervix has stayed exactly the same measurement since my last appointment–3.5 cm without pressure applied to my abdomen, and 4.0 cm when pressure is applied to my abdomen. This indicates that I have no signs right now of pre-term labor. What a relief!
I am feeling really good right now, except for persistent nausea and my dumb knee injury. My blood pressure is nice and normal, I passed my gestational diabetes early screening with flying colors, and my weight gain is on target (another 3 lbs today for a total of 12 lbs). Everything is going great! My next ultrasound will be May 26 at 21w5d.
