This week the Twinjas weigh any where between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds, about the size of head of cauliflower. I'll find out the weights at my appointment on Tuesday. They sleep and wake a regular intervals. Brain tissue is developing, so their brains are very active now. Their taste buds are developed and can taste what I eat, usually about 30 minutes after I eat something. The babies are going to love potatoes. They can see light and shadows. I tested this theory by shining a flashlight into my belly.
I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and we will find out if I will be put on bed rest at 28 weeks. Saturday is my baby shower, and I can't wait. I can't wait to spend time with my family and friends celebrating the upcoming arrival of Robbie and Rylee.
