We didn't have a long wait........
.....but time enough to snap a few pictures.
Such a cute couple!!
The last scan seemed to indicate a set of monozygotic (identical) twins - Babies A and D.
THIS week the doctors and nurses feel like the scan shows each baby with its own placenta and sac......which is a very good thing as this would rule out the risk of the twins sharing a joint blood supply. This does not necessarily rule out twins, however.
It gets complicated. There are dizygotic (fraternal) twins as well as monozygotic.
But for now the important thing is that babies and mom are ALL doing well at this time.
Tomorrow Amber will be 20 weeks.
The hustle and bustle and tension and stress from a quad pregnancy can be pretty overwhelming at times. Amber and Mike take it all in stride. They know each other very well. Mike knew Amber was about at her limit today. So - instead of coming straight home - he took us all to the movies! AND it was a movie tavern at that!
Nothing chills Amber out like a trip to the cinema!
She had two tall glasses of iced tea - while I sipped a nice glass of chardonnay - and we all enjoyed an appetizer platter of all things fried!
This Means War.......very cute and totally lifted our spirits!
We all came home with smiles on our faces and with a much more relaxed attitude!
I will close with a few pics......
Amber at 20 weeks!
And still growing!
That's my girl!!
