We went for an ultrasound last week and they measured the babies to get an approximate weight. The estimate is that each baby is now around three pounds, so really Rachel is now carrying around 6 pounds worth of baby and another pound for the second placenta. That means that she’s carrying 7 pounds, or the equivalent of a full term baby. Of course she’s only 3/4 of the way through at 30 weeks, and has another 10 weeks and the babies doubling in weight to go. As you can imagine it’s getting really hard for her to get around, so she’s decided to work from home starting at the end of this month.
