This week was pretty exciting to go to the doctor. Both babies are measuring right on track. They have grown so much in a month. It was really hard to see them both on the screen together. Also, they checked the sexes and sealed it in an envelope for the hostesses of my shower. It's weird that someone else knows, but we don't. We are so excited to find out on October 22nd. The doctor said he's very pleased with my weight gain, only 7 pounds so far. He told me to keep up the good work and continue doing what I'm doing. The cyst on my left ovary has decreased in size, 6.4 cm, which is great. It is still large, but it's shrinking. At this time they don't plan on removing it. We go back on October 24th for another ultrasound. Here is a picture of the babies at 17 weeks.
