Sonogram Photos

We have two early sets, since we have one from Fertility at 6.5 weeks and one from our OB at 8.5 weeks. It's so amazing how much they developed in two weeks!

To answer the very popular question, how do you know they are identicals? See in the picture the oblong dark area that my brother says looks like an okra (week 6.5 photo)? That's the amniotic sac. There are two circles in there with white smudges at one end. The circles are the babies, the white smudges are the hearts, and the fact that they are in a single amniotic sac makes them identical.


The week 8 photo is when the doctor officially named them Twin A and Twin B, so I guess our work there is done! You can make out their figures in this one.

Beautiful! Did the doc not like you idea of Thing 1 and Thing 2? :)

So stinking exciting! Baby A is kind of played out though - i'm sure it was on top 10 names from 2008...That's why we didn't go with it. But I think you're safe with Baby B...
