The verdict is in!!!

We had our 16 week OB appointment today, and he was able to tell us the sexes!!
Well, throw mother's intuition out the window because I was so sure that the babies were both boys. I couldn't have been more wrong! We are expecting TWO GIRLS!!!
Here's the proof! The pics are small, but if you look closely, you can see two legs spread (looks like a Y or the letter U). Well, in between those legs you don't see anything hanging (which would indicate a boy). SO, these are both little ladies!

And here's a couple of ultrasound pictures of the girls from today. They aren't great pics, but I'll take what we can get!

Everything is looking great! The babies continue to measure ahead of schedule (today they were both 5 days ahead of schedule). They have great heartbeats, and everything looks just perfect! My OB couldn't be happier=).

I asked my OB about being referred to a high risk OB, and he said he would refer me if I wanted him to, but he didn't think it was necessary. He said that for some OB's, they don't have ultrasound capabilities, and if that was the case, he would make sure to refer me. He however, has 3D/4D ultrasounds in each room, and he does an ultrasound on me at every single visit. He said being high risk that ultrasounds are very necessary on a regular basis, and he is making sure to do that. He also said that I have a standing appointment with him - any time I feel like I need to come in I can! And he'll scan me. I'm comfortable sticking with him for now. I think my OB is GREAT!!

Oh, and weight gain. I have gained back nearly all of the weight I lost in the first trimester. YAY!! It helps that I like food now - LOL=).

Okay, that's all for now! We have been so so blessed!! Thank you God! I hope you all are doing well and are having a great week!!

15 week belly pics!

As promised, I am trying to make sure I post pictures of my pregnant belly at least every 2 weeks! I'm getting big, and I LOVE it! For the most part, people can look at me now and tell that I'm pregnant (without wondering if they should ask or not! LOL).

Overall, I'm doing well. Morning sickness is mostly gone (with a random cruddy day thrown in there) and I am ever so happy I can finally eat! We go back to the OB on Tuesday so I am excited to see if I am finally starting to gain some weight instead of losing weight!

Oh, and assuming the babies cooperate, we will be finding out the sexes on Tuesday! We are SO excited! We will of course post an update once we know=). I have thought since the beginning that it's two little boys, but I could be totally off base. We will be ecstatic with whatever we have been blessed with!

Okay, so here's a couple of pics of me from yesterday and today! Enjoy!

New Pics!

No, not of the babies, but of momma! Well, momma, and associated pictures anyway. There's a picture of Si preparing to give me my last PIO (progesterone in oil) injection last week (YAY!!!)

A pic of my 2 nearly overflowing sharps containers (yes, we had to do THAT MANY shots!). Totally worth it for the babies!!

As for my pictures, I haven't posted any pictures of myself since 8 weeks. I'm a slacker I know! Sorry everyone! I will be 13 weeks tomorrow. My belly is progressing right along!

Here is a pic of me at 10 weeks

10 weeks 3 days (me and my jutting out little tummy! I think it looks so funny!)

And a couple today at 12 weeks 6 days

Holy buckets I'm getting big!! Check this one out! Si zoomed in on this one and I look HUGE!!

I will try to post pictures once every week or every other week from this point forward. I have a feeling I am going to be growing VERY quickly! Yet ironically I am still LOSING weight! How is that possible??? The OB is not going to be happy with me tomorrow. . . =(.
Anyway, hope you all are doing well! Have a great week!!
