Babycenter has great twin pics every 4 weeks, so I'm gonna be alternating the Nest baby growth information with these better pics as often as possible! Here's what is going on this week with the boys:
"New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it."
This is a big growth week for the babies as they are growing about 1mm a day. They have their first weight measurements this week too: 0.035 ounces. Gotta start somewhere, right? Finally, just heard from my nurse, I can wean off more meds! NO MORE PIO!!!!! I feel like it's a "Ding, Dong, the witch is dead" kind of day! My progesterone level is still >60, even after going down to 1/2cc earlier this week, so I'm finished! Also, my estrogen level rebounded back to 2,337. So, I get to take off another patch tomorrow! Re-checking levels again on Monday. Only 3 more Prometrium supps, 1 more Vivelle patch, and 1 Estrace tablet to go, then I'm finished!! Yippee!!
