Week Twelve Update

2 Dec

As of this weekend, our surrogate is 12 weeks pregnant with our twins.

From what Matt and I have read, this means our twins are about the size of plums at this point. two plumsThey’re about 2-3 inches from the tops of their heads to their rumps, and weigh between half an ounce and an ounce each.

Most of their critical systems are formed, and they’re about to enter a big growth and maturation stage where organs and tissue are going to grow and develop rapidly.

They’re able to open and close fingers and curl toes, and their brain development is picking up speed.

About 166 days to go….
