Do We Have Boys, Girls, or Both???

I went to the doctor a little over a week ago for my monthly checkup. Everything still seems to be going well. I got to hear someone's heart beat, but I am not sure I heard both. The nurse said that it was still hard to tell them apart at this stage and quit listening after hearing one (or what I thought was one). I was not really happy with that, but I didn't really know what I could do about it. The doctor measured me and said that I measured at about 18 weeks (I was actually 14 weeks at the time). But, it is expected that I would be bigger with twins. So, with that, I know that they are still growing. Also, I can feel them stretching me, which is also a good sign they are growing, although not a comfortable one :).

I had high hopes for getting an ultrasound at this visit, but I couldn't seem to get them to let me have one. The doctor said that this was really not the best time at all because visibility would not be as good as it was earlier, or as it will be in a few weeks. However, he said that I could have one the next time. So.... with that, I quit trying because of course, one of my main reasons was that I wanted to see if we could tell if they were boys, girls, or both, and with low visibility, that was not as likely. I also just wanted to see my babies again, but luckily I will get to do that next month.

Do You Have A Prediction?

Because we still have a few weeks before we can try to find out what we have, we thought it would be fun to see what your predictions are as to what we have. Do you think we'll have 2 boys? 2 girls? Both? If both, which one is which (looking at the previous ultrasound)? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think. As soon as we get the official word (or pretty soon after at least), I will post the babies' sexes along with the ultrasound picture and their names (which we are not telling yet, sorry). I just hope they don't decide to be modest that day!

Welcome to our Baby Blog!

A Quick Update:

In mid-November, we found out that we were pregnant. A few weeks later, we found out that we were pregnant with not one baby, but with TWO babies! A little scary and a LOT exciting.

As of today, I am 13 weeks and 3 days pregnant (the ultrasound picture above was taken at 10 weeks, 2 days). Our babies are growing like crazy, which I can tell because they wear me out so much (and they aren't even here yet)! Also, my clothes seem to get a little tighter each day. I finally had to give in and start wearing some maternity clothes, and boy are they much more comfortable! Whoever invented elastic was a genius!!

Of course, it is too soon to know whether we have boys, girls, or one of each, but we do know that we will love them no matter what they are (although we hope for one of each). Hopefully we will get to find out the sexes in a little over a month. So far, they seem to be on track growth-wise and their little hearts beat like crazy! It is so cool to hear.

Well, I think that pretty much sums up the pregnancy so far. Please feel free to leave comments. Also, if you have an idea of something neat to include in the blog, you can let us know that too.

Thank you for checking out our blog and please check back for future posts.
