At our last Ob/Gyn appointment this past Wednesday, they did a quick ultrasound to check on our boys, and both were looking fine and active. We received further assurance that Dominic and Alexander are still matching each other in growth and have a reasonable amount of amniotic fluid, and we even got to see one of our sons discovering the joy of sucking his thumb. You can just make it out in the ultrasound photo.


I tend to be a fairly happy pregnant lady, inclined to giggle at the slightest amusement. Puck often teasingly chides me, “Stop shaking our babies!” What must they think when their world starts to rock and roll to the rhythmic sound of their mom’s laughter?

In-Utero Acrobatic Training

In-Utero Acrobatic Training

Tummy Monkeys

In the last few weeks, Dominic and Alexander have really started to take their acrobatic training seriously – especially if they receive a dose of energy-boosting sugar. About two and half weeks ago, Alexander had an evening where he pushed, prodded, danced and bounced around on the right side of my belly for almost an hour. Puck and I sat fascinated with Puck’s hands on my belly to tactilely catch the show (inspired by a banana snack). Around May 28th, Dominic decided he couldn’t be out done by his brother, so he also gave us an evening performance and demonstrated his strength and agility (inspired by an oreo shake). He definitely had his mommy exclaiming, “Wow!”

Since those first evenings of intense activity, our boys have continued their acrobatic training – though generally they spread out their exercise routines and stick to daytime practices (so far). They seem to prefer the evenings, but earlier this week, they decided to have a long training session from around 9 AM until the early afternoon. It’s amazing how strong they can be, and sometimes you can see a little bump where they are pushing out on my skin.
