21 Week Belly Picture

Dan took a quick snapshot today so I thought I'd post for you all! I'm already starting to get uncomfortable - but I'm trying not to complain too much, because I still have such a ways to go! I'm going to be as big as a duplex soon. Ha,ha.

20 Weeks

Wow, time is really flying. I can't believe I'm over half-way through this! Seems to be going so fast.

The BIG Sono!

Had a terrific appointment today with the Perinatologist! She's a wonderful doctor, and we feel very lucky to be in her care. She was extremely thorough and looked at we covered everything when we spoke during the consult.

The Sono was great and they spent a long time looking at everything in both babies: heart chambers and pulmonary valves; kidneys, bladders, stomachs and intestines; arm and leg bones; facial structures; umbilical cords; neck folds; spines; etc. Everything looked terrific and couldn't have looked better! They were very happy. We also got a good look between the legs of both babies, and confirmed - TWO BOYS! We're thrilled, and think having twin boys is going to be just awesome! We're throwing some names around, but don't want to reveal them quite yet. :)

Here are some pictures of our little angels!

Yesterday's OB Appointment - and a SURPRISE!

First of all, the appointment was great. My blood pressure was perfect, my urine looked good and showed no protein, and I have a total weight gain of ten pounds - not as much as the Doctor would have liked me to gain, but not bad since I've been feeling sick for so long.

The Doctor had a hard time finding the heartbeats of the babies with the doppler (it can be quite tricky with twins sometimes), so she took us back to the sono room to get a quick peek at the heartbeats. Once we saw that both babies were fine and dandy, I spoke up and said, 'You know, we might as well go take a look between their legs, I mean, we're already here.' She said, 'Okay, we can try.' Well, Baby A is for sure, 100% a BOY. Baby B wasn't so cooperative and was very, very wiggly, making it hard to get a good look. HOWEVER, the few quick glimpses that we got looked VERY MUCH like 'boy parts' so we're about 75-85% sure we're having TWO BOYS!!

We'll get confirmation at our big appointment on March 18th. But, we're at least having one boy - and most likely two! A house full of bouncing boys!

P.S. Yes, we know we're going to have our hands full. We're totally excited about it!

17 Weeks

Man, it just seems like this pregnancy is flying by. Feels like just yesterday we found out we were pregnant and were in such shock - after 20 months of trying we were really beginning to think it would never happen! Now that the twinshock is starting to wear off, we're really getting excited - how lucky are we? We get to bring home TWO BABIES to love and cherish forever. That's a blessing I could have never dreamed of. Is it going to be hard? Yes, I'm sure there will be days and weeks that drag by while I walk around as a sleepless zombie, but who cares, right? I'm only 27, I can handle it - I hope. :)

I will leave you with this - so far, my least favorite statement from people who discover we're expecting twins is: "Oh, no! Double Trouble!" Nope, double the love I tell them, and double the hugs, and double the kisses, and double the giggles . . .
