As many of you know, my husband and I are expecting twins! We are approaching the 32 week mark and it seems as if time has flown by. My pregnancy has been filled with a ton of doctors appointments here with my regular OB, a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist, and a Fetal Cardiologist. We have been going to a doctors office at least once a week since October. How annoying right?
Although that’s is what’s best for these boys! They are what’s called Monochorionic-Diamniotic (Mono-Di) which means they have separate sacs but they share one placenta which puts them at high risk for TTTS. Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is when one twin takes more nutrients than the other and causes uneven growth. Luckily, the boys have been within 1% of each other and have weighed in at almost exactly the same every two weeks! They are growing great and we are hoping to have a normal delivery here with our regular OB (because Dr. Borders is simply the bomb).
Everything with this pregnancy is going great except for the fact that we have struggled to settle on names for these two stinkers. However, I think we can finally say that we have decided! We like unique names and we want all our babies to have special, uncommon names so with that being said….
In approximately 4 (ish) weeks we will welcome MEMPHIS and NASHVILLE Smith!
We haven’t fully decided on middle names because choosing first names has been nothing short of agonizing, (I really don’t know why we struggled so much this time) but at least we will be able to call them by name instead of Baby A and Baby B. Which is simply a relief! A huge weight lifted💙
We are still on the lookout for middle names so comment or email us with your suggestions💙 We would love to hear what you would pair with these two unique names!
