Here we are both twins measuring  12 weeks & 3 days
Both have active and passive movements,
liquor is adequate,
Nasal bone seen in both,
Fetal head, fetal spine, limbs, cord insertion, UB, stomach bubble
show no obvious abnormality.
Ductus venosus shows normal flows.

Two placentas seen along posterior & left anterolateral wall.
The placenta of presenting twin is 18 mm from internal os, grade O
( hopefully it will move as the uterus grows )

Still trying to work out what is meant by "the presenting twin"
and what is a grade O placenta.

BPD: 1.71mm  (12 weeks 4 days)
HC: 61mm  (12 weeks 2 days)
Nuchal lucency: 1.2mm

BPD: 1.65mm (12 weeks 3 days)
HC: 6.1mm (12 weeks 2 days)
Nuchal lucency: 1.4mm

1 week till the start of the 2nd trimester
i cant believe this is really happening !
If Dr S was here id give her the biggest HUG!

They are baby-shaped!!!

Presenting twin is the one in front of the other one. O Grade placenta is normal, no calcifications, smooth. Placentas age and go up a grade as the pregnancy progresses - you would want a grade 1,2 or 3 at this stage.

Right on track.
