Another hospital appointment...

We went to the hospital again yesterday for an ultrasound of the boys. We are now 32 weeks and it is becoming more difficult for the hospital to measure everything for the twins as they are getting so big. Everything looked fine though, Luke's estimated weight at the moment is 3lb 14oz and Sam is growing at a similar rate, but without the head circumference in the equation, they find it harder to guess the weight. The amniotic fluid in both sacs is similar too which means that the chances of developing excess fluid in Sam's sac is minimal. We did not get any pics of Sam yesterday, but we did a couple of Luke and I guess I should post them up on here at some point. I just have to get around to scanning them in!

We had a meeting with the doctor after the ultrasound and she said that there may be a possibility that we will have to have a c-section. Luke is horizontal across the top of my uterus with his head by Sam's butt who is diagonally head down. The chances of Luke shifting to head down are minimal and that would mean a breech delivery for Luke. Which, under normal circumstances would be fine, but the largest part to come out for both boys will be Luke's head and there is concern that he may get stuck.

We have another ultrasound in 3 weeks where we will see what is happening with Luke then.

  1. That would be nice if Luke could turn on his own. I guess you'll have to wait and see! Sorry you didn't get any pics of Sam. Those would've been nice to have! I hope they can get some for you at the next US. Glad to hear they are growing well and there's no poly!
