Welcome to the 3rd Trimester!!

Holy Cow!!  I'm in the 3rd trimester.  How did I get here?  I'm still not really sure and I don't think I'll even be able to process it until after my twins are here safe and sound...But, I'm so happy and thankful to be here!!

28 weeks with about 9 weeks to go!!

Just some quick updates...I passed my 1 hour glucose test.  I was shocked because I know carrying twins meant that I had a higher risk for gestational diabetes.  I promptly celebrated that night with leftover cookies and cupcakes from my shower!!

I got my rhogam shot because my blood type is B-.  Not very exciting, but I'm happy to have it on-board!!

We had our 28 week ultrasound yesterday.  Both babies were looking good and continued to look big.  Baby Girl is 3lbs 1oz and Baby Boy is 2lbs 12oz.  The MFM said that the size difference is normal and just something that we will continue to watch.  My fluid levels look good.  And with that, they sent me on my way. 

I'll update more with items that we purchased/received for the babies later. 


  1. First the same IVF dates and now we're the same blood type too? Crazy! Congrats on reaching this milestone and passing your test.

  2. Yay for third trimester! And 28 weeks is such a huge milestone with twins! I can't believe you are still working and everything - you are doing amazing! And congrats on the glucose test and big babes too :).

  3. Such great news all around! Sounds like you're doing great!

  4. Yay! Hooray for 28 weeks!! My girl is also bigger than my boy - weird. I've heard anecdotally that baby girls tend to be bigger than baby boys, but who knows. (I also celebrated passing my glucose test with a big bowl of ice cream, hahaha)
