Let's Change Things Up

Had my big ultrasound today.  You know, the one you wait for your entire pregnancy.  All eyes in the room are staring at one thing...your unborn baby's (or in our case, babies') genitals.  Its the one time as a mother you pray your child does not decide to be modest.  Truly, the one time.

And we got to do it times two!

So, I won't punish you and make you read an entire paragraph about the health of our babies or the measurement of my cervix (like you care) before I tell you that...

Yes, according to Annelise, that is a boy pee-pee.
Well, if the picture isn't obvious enough...we're welcoming BLUE into our house.  And we couldn't be more thrilled about it.

So sweet...face to face and very cuddly in the womb!
The babies (ahem...boys!) are very healthy, measuring about 6 inches each and weighing roughly 9 and 10 ounces.  Um, that's a foot of baby boy in my stomach, not to mention 2 pounds of baby, placenta, amniotic get the picture.  No wonder I feel so uncomfortable already! 

Thankfully, all of my vitals are looking great.  Long cervix, healthy blood pressure.  And, while my babies (sorry, still getting used to this...boys) measure 19 weeks, my stomach size measures 26 weeks.  Holy cow!  I wonder what I'll measure at the end?  I've only gained 3 pounds, which is amazing, because I feel like all I do is eat. 

We're still aiming for a December 28 delivery.  Trying to keep them in as long as possible.  However, anything after December 15 is fair play.  So, needless to say, we're very excited (and relieved) that we'll be changing it up a hair bows for ball caps and dolls for trucks.  We're ready for some boy action in this house.

Excited for you guys!!! I was a bit jealous that you are having twins, as I wanted twins myself. But I will "settle" for another girl. Maybe I will follow in your steps, as Coralyn and your second girl are very close in age, and have twin boys the next go around. :)
