We got the call we've been hoping we wouldn't receive. Our doctor called us to let us know there is a concern in the difference in the babies weights. They are an estimated 10 and 12 ounces which is 20% and enough to send us to a specialist. We have an appointment next Wednesday to see the twin specialist. Honestly, we don't know what to expect and are trying our best not to worry and have faith that things are and will continue to be perfect.
A bit of good news...Lisa felt one of the babies moving around today for the first time. On Sunday, she called me to tell me there is a lump in her stomach. I told her to push on it...so she says while she's gently pushing on her belly "baby? is that you?" Well the bump responded and simply disappeared.
Today was a different story. One of the little ones decided she was bored during a mid-morning meeting and thought it would be fun to stick a butt or leg out. I still don't know how Lisa kept from interrupting the meeting and telling everyone what just happened. The baby continued to move around for a couple minutes and then fell back asleep or wandered off to the other side of the playground.
Later this evening, Lisa felt another movement but by the time I came over and put my hand on the spot, it had stopped. So I'm going to go to bed now, say a prayer, and fall asleep with my hand on her belly...waiting patiently for that next kick.
Keep us in your prayers and we'll update as we find out more.
Here are some more pictures from our last visit.
This was the only one with both babies in the same picture. See all the fingers?
