32 Week Ultrasound (and a few shower pics)

Now that we are getting closer to the big day, time seems to be flying by. I haven't had a chance to update the blog at all as work travel has been uber insane.

The positive? I have been in the US alot so have been able to see my prego sister and my mom.

In fact, I went to my mom's house two weeks ago and her and her girlfriends surprised me with a shower! It was awesome. Carlos was in the UK so he couldn't be there... :( but we sent pics and Facetimed him in. Isn't this a cool cupcake cake that they ordered???

The next week, my US colleagues got together and threw us a surprise shower in the office. It was such a great surprise and everyone has been super cool. Cute elephant and giraffe cake, huh?!

Last week, we got an update and our 32 week ultrasound. Everything is looking good. The pics didn't show much again (grrrrrr!) but the important thing is that the twins are both growing well. The small echogenic intracardiac focus didn't show up in this last fingers crossed that whole thing is all over with. The only issue that we are dealing with right now is our awesome surrogate having gestational diabetes but they have been treating that with insulin everyday and that seems to be working.

So here is what is happening with the twins. The scan was done at about 31 weeks 5 days:

Cephalic presentation
The approx. gestational age is 31 weeks 0 days
BPD- 77 mm 31 weeks 0 days
HC- 292mm 32 weeks 2 days
AC- 259mm 30 weeks 1 days
FL-. 5.9 mm 30 weeks 5 days
EFW- 1607grms

Breech presentation
The approx. gestational age is 32 weeks 2 days
BPD- 81 mm 32 weeks 4 days
HC- 297mm 32 weeks 6 days
AC- 286mm 32 weeks 5 days
FL- 59 mm 30 weeks 5 days
EFW- 1909grms


I guess we should start to get ready for the trip, huh? We are scheduled to leave for India in just 3.5 weeks. This is so crazy. Is this really happening?

I've finally started to get stressed out. Mostly about the details of things like passports and visas... luggage and lists of what to bring...



  1. Oh wow!!! So will you return to the UK or US? On UK or US passports for babies? What visas will you go over on? Have you read my blog about huge visa issues? Lots of love and luck! Sr x

    1. Yeah sure It's such a nightmare! It's stressed me out enough I've quit my job early and I need therapy! X

  2. Those babies look perfect! Congrats on the healthy scan. It sounds like SCI has the insulin under control especialy since the little ones are right where they should be.

  3. The countdown has begun! Good luck guys!

  4. Wow less than a month until India? You guys are going to have so much fun. It's been a long time coming!

  5. Not long to go! so exciting!

  6. Congrats on another great scan. It won't be long now!!

  7. Wow! So excited for you! Sending wishes for the safe delivery of two healthy babies!
