We're here...sensational second trimester!

B1 measuring 59mm, 12 weeks and 4 days and looking quite snug!

B2 measuring 58mm, 12 weeks and 3 days and looking really snug!!

Our little ones have actually made it to 14 weeks today (and tomorrow for B2) which we are absolutely thrilled with.  As you can see our scans rarely show the twins together in the same shot - so individual already!!
We are pleased to learn that both the twins nasal bones were seen on their scan and both are clear of abnormalities.  Our email from SCI detailed that all is well with Mrs M and that the babies are progressing perfectly.  Well we can't ask for more than that.  We now have graduated to the monthly scan and so will have to get used to waiting a little longer for progress updates, but from what we have seen of other IP's scans it is well worth the wait when each monthly scan shows so much progress!

We are starting to think about the layout for the nursery now and managing to go through and make an inventory of the various baby items we have collected over the past 10 years that until recently we thought may have been accumulated in vain.  We were surprised at how many bits and pieces we had collected over the years, and for a little while there we tried so hard not to think about.

I'm really excited to be going to a friends baby shower this weekend as it's the first one I have been happy and excited to go to in years.  Bring on the cupcakes, baby talk and silly games!

Well as always we had to check the fruit and veg comparison for the week and as it turns out our limes have developed into lemons.  Quite fitting really as the winter weather has set in here and the hot honey and lemon drinks have been almost a daily ritual!

Thinking of all of you in surro-land and sending prayers and good thoughts for whatever stage of the journey you are on.  Thank you for everyone's support as always, we really look forward to hearing from you!
Well done babies and Mrs M - happy 14 weeks!!!
